17. Navy Blue – Lamar Miller, RB

Behind Ronnie Brown and Reggie Bush, Lamar Miller was as explosive and impressive as any Dolphins running back. His biggest issue was usage. The former Miami Hurricane did the most out of the limited touches he received, but this time around he should be used as a workhorse.

18. White – Minkah Fitzpatrick, DB

Minkah Fitzpatrick had a very short time with the Miami Dolphins, but he was still impressive nonetheless. While I don’t think he’d be excited to have Flores as his head coach again, he does join forces with Jason Taylor and Xavien Howard on defense.

19. Orange – Jaylen Waddle, WR

Jaylen Waddle and Ronnie Brown on an offense together is absolute fireworks. Waddle came onto the scene as a rookie for the Miami Dolphins breaking the single-season rookie reception record with 104. He will now look to build on that season alongside Tyreek Hill. He will rejoin Tagovailoa and look to continue their dynamic chemistry alongside Brown.

20. Aqua Green –  Mike Pouncey, OL

Protecting your quarterback is vital and Mike Pouncey did just that during his time with the Miami Dolphins. This time, he’ll be protecting Chad Pennington. Pouncey was a three-time Pro-Bowler with the Dolphins and is one of their best offensive linemen in recent years.
