Are you not entertained?

This week is an example of why the NFL is so much fun. The NBA made headlines this week with a whirlwind of trades at the NBA deadline. The Miami Heat even made a splash by landing Victor Oladipo.

However, the NFL wasn’t about to be outshined. 

On Friday, the NFL stole the show with a head-turning ten-minute stretch sparked by the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins executed a couple of blockbuster trades. The first trade moved Miami out of the top ten in order to acquire additional picks, including multiple first-rounders. Before the dust was settled, Miami moved back into the top ten while still walking away with an additional future first-round pick at the end of the day. 

Now that the Dolphins are selecting at No. 6 in the 2021 NFL Draft, who should they be targeting? In the latest episode of Talking About Them Dolphins, Jamie Bahamas explains who he thinks Miami should select.

    Miami has 4 major needs

    OT, sewell and slater … both could play any position. a true OT would improve both OG and OT

    Edge, a case could be made that Miami needs two … at #6 there is no true pass rush edge player with this high of a value, but Parsons could be a target as he has the skill to play any of the LB positions … all others you would have stayed at #12

    RB, there is no RB in this draft worth the #6 pick. If this was the focus they would have stayed at #12

    WR, Miami has brought in at least 5 WR’s … they have fast, they have shifty, they have tall, they have jump ball, they have wide wing span types,….they do not have a true separation WR, a WR that requires the defense to double him….this would either be Smith for game changing separation or a huge player like Pitts with his size/speed would be tough to cover … put him in the slot and stop calling him a TE as he is not one….

    That is 5 players with at worse 2 of them gone before you pick …. IMO you go for the player with the biggest impact … Pitts, Parsons, or one of the OTs

    1 Pitts
    2 Chase
    3 Smith in that order at 6th

    1 Harris
    2 Etienne
    3 Williams

    then on the second round a Center and Edge

    I would go after Najee Harris at 6 overall. then go after waddle or DE for the first round. In the second round I would focus on WR because plenty will be available then and work on a Middle LB

    The Dolphins have been lacking a stellar Running back for many years and need to address that position first and foremost. I do not believe Najee Harris will be around at 18 overall in the first round but if he is available at that point grab him! I personally think they should target him at 6 overall, that is what I would do. Jalen Waddle will probably be there at 18 but not Chase or Devonte Smith, Parsons is gone by pick 18 and probably Pitts. Myself, I would focus on dropping off any unnecessary WRs they have on the Dolphins roster and create more cap space(too many WRs that are injured are on the roster-pretty stupid to keep them on standby). Focus on offense first round, then a little defense in the second. third or evne 4th round is for offensive linemen.

    Sadly, many Dolphin fans have criticized me for claiming Najee Harris was not going to be a possible first-round selection, yet the conversation has shifted dramatically towards that conclusion. Najee Harris is a RB that will define a franchise if he can stay healthy in the NFL. Personally, I would shy away from Devonta Smith as his frame is just a little bit fragile for the pros (unless he chooses to pack on 30-40 pounds in muscle). I think Ja’Mar Chase(who is a more prototypical kind of Wide Receiver whom I think they should select, if opportunity presents itself and steer away from Devonta Smith. I feel that the Dolphins need to stay pat at number 6 and select Najee Harris, but knowing how foolish Chris Grier is, he will trade back for some useless positioning and lose out of at least one or two key players.
