The dust has somewhat settled on a crazy few weeks that included some major free agent moves and a Chris Grier masterpiece resulting in the Dolphins totally altering the landscape of the upcoming 2021 draft.
With the moves that the team made over the last few weeks, Miami addressed a few areas of need but there are still some big holes on this roster that need to be fixed. Luckily for the Dolphins, they have more than enough capital to fix a variety of issues that still remain on the roster.
Let’s get started!
Pick 6, WR Ja’Marr Chase,
Based on the trade that took place last week, there is a very good chance that 3 quarterbacks, if not 4, go before the Dolphins pick at number 6. If either scenario plays out, Miami will be able to choose from one of three players: Kyle Pitts, DeVonta Smith and Ja’Marr Chase.
In this scenario, Pitts was off the board (paired with Joe Burrow in Cincinnati) and Ja’Marr Chase was the easy selection.
There is no denying that Chase is an explosive athlete who can help Tua Tagovailoa develop into the quarterback that the Dolphins drafted him to be. Chase proved to be unstoppable in 2019 and was cemented as the top receiving prospect in this draft class and that was without even playing in 2020. Had he played, there is no doubt that he would have continued to cement his top 10 status.
Miami would be able to boast a receiving corp of DeVante Parker, Will Fuller, Ja’Marr Chase and Mike Gesicki. There are few groups better than this one in the NFL.
