The Miami Dolphins have a lot of picks for the 2018 NFL Draft and all eyes will be on who they call with their first-round selection. The team’s wide receivers coach, Channing Tindall, is likely to offer some insight into what he expects from his players.
You can’t really blame yourself if you forgot that the Miami Dolphins were permitted to enter the NFL Draft in 2022. The AFC East club that made the most of the Nos. 102, 125, 224, and 247 picks had the lowest draft capital of any team in the competition.
Of course, the lack of draft-day darts is due, at least in part, to quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s choice to offer him a lethal deep threat in the form of Tyreek Hill.
Even after bringing in Terron Armstead and Connor Williams as part of an offseason spending binge, Miami could need some help along the offensive line, especially on the inside, and boosting the linebacker room would be beneficial. However, given the paucity of high-profile choices, this club should consider taking the best-player-available approach and focusing on the talents that slipped through the gaps.

With Channing Tindall still on the board far beyond his average projection of late in the second round or early in the third, it’s hard to blame the Dolphins for leaning defense here. He’s a decent run defender who can keep an eye on the quarterback from the center of the field or pursue ball-carriers out to the sidelines, but he suffers in the passing game and should have benefitted from the Bulldogs’ plethora of future pros around him.
