The Miami Dolphins must fill a position of need in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft
The Miami Dolphins have four very clear holes at the moment if every item before this one is fulfilled. The team will need to still address the offensive line, such as center and left guard, EDGE, and wide receiver.
Taking one of these positions in the first round must be the plan for the team. At wide receiver, the team could wait if they fall out of the five main wideouts in the draft.
The team could have a legit shot at Texas A&M offensive guard Kenyon Green, but should not use picks to move up to get him. Outside of him, there isn’t any projected guard on the board worth taking in the first. If the Dolphins feel Jackson or Eichenberg can play the left guard at a high level it might not be a problem either.
At EDGE the team should view Florida State’s Jermaine Johnson. The ACC defensive player of the year was the player I had the Dolphins taking on the first round of my latest mock draft. Pairing him with Ogbah and Phillips would give the team a dynamic EDGE rusher trio that any team would enjoy.
With the San Francisco 49ers' loss in the NFC Championship, the Miami Dolphins will select 29th in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
The team has options, but they also have a history of flopping with Grier as general manager. Hopefully, he has a repeat performance of his 2021 first-round picks and not his 2020 first-round picks.
