Dolphins fourth-round pick: Tennessee RB Jaylen Wright

Finally, a pick to agree with, for the most part. A problem fans had was that Grier traded a future third-round pick for a fourth-rounder. Regardless of how many third-round comp picks may be coming, this felt rough. Had lineman Mason McCormick been available, he would have been a great get, but he ended up with the Steelers.

Wright will compete with De'Von Achane for RB1 snaps when Raheem Mostert begins to decline either this year or next. Wright has the tools to be a stud for the Miami offense and he'll be able to turn some heads in '24 too. This was a great pick.

My pick: Jaylen Wright

Dolphins fifth-round pick: Colorado State EDGE Mohamed Kamara

Another great pick. Again, Grier couldn't have known Mohamed Kamara would be here, but if he had, I wonder if he would have gone a different direction in the first two rounds. Kamara's burst and aggressiveness are impressive - he plays similarly to Robinson, which again has us wondering why the Dolphins took him in the first round.

Kamara is a bit short with shorter arms, but he's explosive, fast, and will make for a good rotational guy when Miami is at full strength. This was a solid addition for the Dolphins pass-rush, especially with Jaelan Phillips and Bradley Chubb coming off their season-ending injuries in 2023.

My pick: Mo Kamara
