21. Aqua Green – Jerome Baker, LB

In 2019, Baker put together a season where he complied 126 tackles on the season. While his tackle totals have gone down – 112 in 2020 and 109 in 2021 – his role continues to grow for the Dolphins. Baker has improved in coverage and going after the quarterback, while also becoming a leader for the team.

22. Orange – Richie Incognito, OL

Richie Incognito was, at one point, one of the best Dolphins offensive linemen. He was let go due to the bullying scandal with former Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin. Following his time with the Dolphins, Incognito continued to play quality football. He had a mean streak to him that made him a great offensive guard.

23. White- Mike Gesicki, TE

The first, and likely only, tight end to go off the board is current Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki. The former Penn State Nitty Lion has had his ups and downs with the Dolphins, but he’s a threat in the Red Zone and always comes down with a spectacular catch. Pairing him with Reggie Bush gives this team plenty of Red Zone options.

24. Navy Blue – Randy Starks, DT

Randy Starks was a player that was always doing the dirty work for the Miami Dolphins defense alongside his running mate Paul Solai. Both players were great while they were with the Dolphins, but Starks was the better athlete. He and Reshad Jones build a defensive foundation reminiscent to the 2010s.
