Miami Dolphins must address secondary holes in the draft
The Miami Dolphins will likely need another safety if the team does move on from Eric Rowe, as this offseason plan has the team doing. Rowe was especially good at covering tight ends, something that the team will now need.
With Jones and Holland manning the two safety spots, the team will now need a third safety to take over the role. University of Miami safety Bubba Bolden could be the player that best fits that role.
Bolden may not be a day one or two guy, but he should be an immediate contributor on the Dolphins roster. At 6-foot-3, 204 pounds, Bolden is a bigger safety who moves around the field easily.
The Dolphins could fill this role with a free agent, but a young trio of Bolden, Jones, and Holland will give Boyer three safeties that can rotate into any role safety must play. Holland is the key here, his ability to play deep, man, and rush the passer could allow both Bolden and Jones the chance to play deep.
The Dolphins should also consider drafting Oregon corner Mykeal Wright to take over the nickel corner slot with Nik Needham set to hit free agency. Wright was Oregon’s top corner in 2021 and had one of his best performances in Oregon’s win over Ohio State in Colombus against two projected first-round picks.
