The Miami Dolphins made five selections between rounds four and seven. Of those five selections, only two remain on the roster and one of them may not last past this year’s training camp.

Round six brought the Dolphins long snapper, Blake Ferguson. Ferguson has done well for the Dolphins and is a solid snapper. He could see his career last quite a while as he rarely makes mistakes. The success that he has had in Miami makes him a good quality draft selection that should be drafted again but if Miami were to redraft, Jon Runyan, an offensive tackle might be a good choice.

Round 5 saw the Dolphins make two selections, Jason Strowbridge and Curtis Weaver. As we said, Weaver didn’t make it through camp, and Strowbridge was gone after his first season. Miami could have done better in round five.

Miami should have drafted guard Michael Onwenu who has been stellar in New England. He was taken in round six. K.J. Osborn would also have been an option. Osborn missed his rookie season but put up 655 yards in 2021.

Round four could have gone much better for the Dolphins but it isn’t over just yet. Solomon Kindley was drafted with the 111th overall pick five picks into round four. Kindley started off well but that has fallen apart and now he may not make the 2022 roster.

Miami might have better success taking L’Jarius Sneed who was drafted at pick 138.  Sneed played both safety, slot corner, and wide corner his rookie season and graded out well. Miami invested heavily in their secondary, however, adding Bryon Jones during free agency but he would have been a much better choice than Igbinoghene.
