We are that much closer to the 2021 NFL Draft, and Miami Dolphins fans have brought the energy all draft season. Somehow, the 2021 NFL Draft season was even wilder than the uncertainty and cancelation of the 2020 offseason because of COVID-19.
Miami has been working the phones all off-season, and they have been in the news daily regarding something the team has done or could be doing. It is rumor season, so who knows what to believe, but believe one thing; Miami has become one of the most talked-about teams in the entire NFL. That has its pros and cons, but it shows that Miami is on the right path, in my opinion.
The news outlets have covered the Dolphins so hard because, in my opinion, they are on the cusp of becoming a perennial contender. Certain media outlets have written off starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa already. Some have gone as far as to suggest Miami will draft a quarterback with the sixth overall pick, even though they traded back from pick three, essentially giving themselves a worse quarterback… yeah, I know, that makes no sense and won’t happen.
However, it is news, which is exactly what the Dolphins have been this offseason: news. Everyone focuses on who Miami should take with the No. 6 pick, while some are also talking about who Miami shouldn’t pick with the sixth pick.
Miami also holds picks 18, 36, and 50, giving them four top 50 picks. These four picks have been talked about the most, and it has been fun to see all the big named players mentioned or mocked to the Dolphins at those picks.
We have been hearing about all the big named players and not much about potential sleepers for the Dolphins in the draft. With that said, here are 15 sleepers for the Dolphins in the 2021 NFL Draft.
