37. Aqua Green – Brandon Fields, P

Brandon Fields spent seven years as the Dolphins punter, being named to the Pro-Bowl once in 2013. For most of my time watching the Dolphins, Carpenter or Sanders have kicked for the team, Fields was the one staple at punter that was always able to give the defense good situations.

38. Orange – Cody Parkey, K

Between Carpenter and Sanders, there was Cody Parkey for the Miami Dolphins. While Parkey is best known for the infamous double-doink. During his one season with the Dolphins, Parkey made around 90% of his field goals and extra points.

39. White- Matt Moore, QB

Brian Flores’ white team finally takes a quarterback. Matt Moore wasn’t the greatest quarterback, but he was vital to the Dolphins’ last playoff appearance. After Tannehill’s injury, Moore stepped up and helped lead the Dolphins to a Wild Card appearance. Moore steps into another situation here with a top-notch defense and plenty of dynamic offensive weapons.

40. Navy Blue – Davone Bess, KR

Tyreek Hill can’t be taken, Jaylen Waddle and Jarvis Landry were taken as wideouts, so the next best option is to pick a fun player like Davone Bess. Bess, a personal favorite, was with the team for five years and only had over 1,000 return yards with no touchdowns in that time span. Bess was always interesting to watch, considering he played on Dolphins teams where he was among the leaders in targets, receptions, and yards.
