Round 5: Zamir White, RB, Georgia
Two running backs?
The Miami Dolphins do not value the running back position, so people are going to think I’m crazy for having them take two running backs in the 2022 NFL Draft, but hear me out.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and expecting different results. Miami needs to change some things, and not caring about the running back position is one of them. Miami doesn’t need to take a running back in the first round or even the second.
Pairing Cook with Zamir White would be elite. White has a chance to go earlier, but the deep running back class may force him down draft boards. White and Cook are an elite tandem at Georgia, and keeping them together would be awesome in the NFL.
It would be awesome to see an offense with Deshaun Watson, Jaylen Waddle, Brandin Cooks, Mike Gesicki, James Cook, and Zamir White.
Round 6: Liam Shanahan, C, LSU
Who knows if Michael Deiter will still remain the Miami Dolphins starting center next season, but Miami needs to draft a center to compete.
They could go the free agency route, which I would love to, but I like Liam Shanahan out of LSU if they don’t. He is a former Harvard graduates transfer and started center for LSU upon arriving. I think he has the smarts to survive in the NFL and could be a Jason Kelce-type steal at center late in the draft.
Round 7: Bubba Bolden, S, Miami
I can’t tell you where Bolden will get drafted in the 2022 NFL Draft, but I can tell you I really want to see the Dolphins be the team to pick him.
Bolden has a million reasons not to be drafted by teams, but he has a million reasons why he should. He has never been able to reach his full potential, and I would love to see him with Flores and that Dolphins defense.
