29. Aqua Green – Jevon Holland, DB

Similar to Jaylen Waddle, Jevon Holland had a strong first year that saw him become an important piece of the Miami Dolphins team. He has all the potential in the world to become one of the best safeties in all of football. With that in mind, he has a chance to contest Reshad Jones for the best of this century. In this go-around, he pairs up with Cameron Wake, Jerome Baker, and Vontae Davis to form a formidable defense.

30. Orange – Sean Smith, DB

Sean Smith and Vontae Davis were the stop gap between Patrick Surtain and Sam Madison and then Xavien Howard and Byron Jones. With the Dolphins, Smith was a highly impressive player that was Davis’ number two. He was able to make a Pro-Bowl with the Raiders, but he always demonstrated his potential with the Dolphins.

31. White- Jakeem Grant, KR

Jakeem Grant the kick returner, not the wide receiver, is the first specialist off the board. Grant, who was traded to the Chicago Bears last season, was one of the most dynamic kick returners the Dolphins have had for a while. So much so that he was named as the kick returner for the Pro-Bowl last season.

32. Navy Blue – Channing Crowder, LB

Crowder has gained more popularity in his life after football thanks to his podcasting and media life. With the Dolphins, Crowder was a dynamic player with a nose for the football.
