I had fun with this one. The Dolphins have so many needs and so many draft picks to fill them with. They will likely end up trading one of their second rounders for OT Albert or sign Winston if that falls through.

They need to upgrade their pass rush and DE rotation desperately. Werner and Carradine are good additions. Wilson and Slay are also good prospects at corner to replace the loss of Smith and Davis. I like the offensive lineman I was able to get. Both guys add depth to the interior of the line. Thomas may actually end up at LT.

It might seem odd to take 3 TEs but Miami needs both blocking and receiving TEs. Kelce could be an everydown starter, along with Dustin Keller. Lutzenkirchen and Ford were both solid college TEs. I wanted to completely change their TE group.

Andre Ellington should contribute some right away after the Dolphins lost Reggie Bush. Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas will fight for that starting job. Tavarres King is a nice little 5th round receiver to add to a weak group.

I wish I could have done better at OT and at WR, but I didn't want to reach for a OT when I was pretty sure the Dolphins would go after a vet.
That right there is a great draft. 7-8 contributors as rookies, Ireland can only hope to do that well. Kelce/King/Ellington/Lutzenkirchen all have a chance to contribute in varying degrees as rookies. That's quite a haul for that late in the draft.
