Top 3 Miami Dolphins storylines heading into the NFL Draft
By Matt Serniak
Mike McDaniel has been a part of several drafts in his life. But he’s never been the head coach of a team during the draft. I’m curious to see how he handles it.
Obviously with, currently, four draft picks the number of times we see Mike McDaniel will be limited. If Grier gets all antsy in his pants and trades up, we’ll see more of Mike McD.
Even with only the four draft picks, I’m still very curious to see how McDaniel handles himself. My guess would be that he will be at the Miami Dolphin’s facility with Chris Grier in their war room. I think that approach of drafting is back on seeing how society is handling the pandemic.
I’d love to see McDaniel in some huge Miami mansion surrounded by people feeding him grapes and fanning him making sure he is comfortable while Pitbull is in the corner chopping onions. But that’s just me.
For real though, I want to see how Mike McD attacks this draft. Does he yield to the defense with the Dolphin’s first draft pick or does he tell Grier that he wants more offense? Either way, I’m intrigued.
I feel like I’m going to be studying every clip they show McDaniel as if I’m an FBI agent studying Putin’s body language. McDaniel crossing his right leg over his left compared to him crossing his left leg over his right tells us what kind of offense the Dolphins will come out in week one. I’m almost positive about that.
For real though, I am curious to see how smooth and calm McDaniel approaches the draft. I imagine he’ll be loose and cracking jokes, per usual, as he devours an entire stuffed crust pizza from Pizza Hut. Then, he’ll get on the phone and crank call the team’s first pick. For real, that is what I hope happens.
