The Miami Dolphins add at Running Back and Wide Receiver in round three
Round 3 Pick 79: Sean Tucker, RB, Syracuse
The Miami Dolphins’ addition of Wilson doesn’t take away from what the team needs long-term – a workhorse running back.
Mostert and Wilson are both well-versed in the offense and are both above-average players in the system. Adding a player like Sean Tucker – 5’10” 205-Lbs – will give the team a player who is both a solid runner and pass catcher.
On the season, Tucker has 758 rushing yards, 7 rushing touchdowns, 32 receptions, 248 receiving yards, and 2 receiving touchdowns. He is a threat through the ground and through the air.
All four of Miami’s current running backs are set to be free agents in 2023. Bringing back at least one or two is a priority, adding one in the draft is even more vital. Tucker could be that guy.
The Miami Dolphins traded for Bradley Chubb earlier today but they weren't done. Now they are adding RB Jeff Wilson in a trade with the 49ers.
Round 3 Pick 84: Rakim Jarrett, WR, Maryland
The Miami Dolphins wide receiver room is set as far as its top options go. Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle are top-10 players at the position and it should remain that way for years to come. Outside of the two, the talent drops off.
Cedrick Wilson has failed to live up to his deal, but Trent Sherfield has surpassed all expectations. The team could have a future stud in Erik Ezukanma, but he has yet to play in 2022.
Adding Maryland wideout Rakim Jarrett would take him from one Tagovailoa to another. Jarrett, a former five-star recruit and top wideout in his class, has seen his stock shake up during his time at Maryland, but his combine should help him out.
Adding Jarrett would give the team another outside wideout that can take the top off defenses and play physically. Regardless, giving Tua Tagovailoa another top-notch option isn’t a bad option either.
