The Miami Dolphins have three picks in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Due to that, there is a lot of excitement surrounding the team as we creep closer to the draft.
However, it also means that there is a lot of mystery. With three picks, Miami could go in so many different directions.
They have the fifth overall pick, the 18th overall pick and the 27th overall pick. That could help them rebuild the offense with weapons, get a quarterback, work on the offensive line, or fill holes in the secondary and on defense.
For now, we’re focusing on the 18th pick though. Who will the Dolphins select in that spot? We tried to figure that out.
To try and zero in on who the Dolphins will take with the 18th pick, the first thing you have to do is figure out who they are taking with the fifth pick. It’s pretty safe to assume at this point that they’ll be taking a quarterback—Tua Tagovailoa to be exact.
That does a few things. First, it takes away the possibility of Miami selecting a quarterback at 18. Second, it points them in a pretty obvious direction. With a rookie quarterback they will want to build around him.
So that likely points in the offensive direction. Now the question is, wide receiver or offensive line?
Miami could absolutely use help in both categories. Tagovailoa will not succeed if he doesn’t have them. With that in mind, those would make the most sense as the next two picks of the Dolphins. If you ask me, it all depends on who is available. I know that sounds obvious, but I’m talking about two players specifically: Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs III.
