Good thing we rested him against LSU!

As a Dolphan I'm pissed. Most likely ANOTHER in a long, long string of Dolphin Draft Disasters.
Flores, or Grier, or whoever was behind it, got way too cute with their trades. The two of them both have chips on their shoulders and are trying too hard to look smart.
Instead of staying pat at #3 and taking Kyle Pitts, who would've been the PERFECT compliment for Tua, we trade down to 12, then package some of those picks to move back up to #6, and what we netted from the deal was a third-round(!) pick next year, and San Francisco's first-round pick the year after that (2023).
Then when we pick at #6 and have the choice of reuniting Tua with either Smith or Waddle, we choose Waddle, who is the smaller and (probably) more injury-prone of the two. Most mock drafts I saw had Smith going before Waddle.
Then we get to our second first-round pick, #18, and take Jaelan Phillips, an edge rusher from UM who NOBODY had going that high. Again, this is Flores and/or Grier trying to show that they have some special insight. All they did was outsmart themselves.
Dolphins should've stayed at #3 and taken Kyle Pitts, then Bama RB Najee Harris at #18.
Instead we got Jaylen Waddle and Jaelan Phillips, so we now lead the league in players whose mothers didn't know how to spell Jalen.

I'm expanding this projection to the first two rounds and making predictions for Picks 1-64. That means I'll hit 31 teams this time, with the Seahawks and Rams both missing their first-round pick due to trades. The Texans are the lone team that doesn't have a pick in Rounds 1 or 2. But the Cowboys could be joining them in sitting out Round 2 as sources say they are likely to give up a 2nd and 3rd Round pick to Denver to move up from 10th for Florida Safety, Donovan Stiner. The "Stine at Nine" mantra has gained traction the past few days and Dallas isn't about to let the Broncos take what Jones has described as "their man". It's looking like the only lock in a still very fluid Top 10.

Pitts could go as high as 4 (the highest a TE is taken in NFL history) - he certainly isn't getting past the Bengals at 5. If for some reason he kept slipping, the Cowboys would not be able to resist taking him at 10 even with all the defense they need.
Pitts is a player that would not have been as valuable 20 years ago but with the passing revolution going on in the NFL, he's a game-changing player. OC's are drooling over him.

Bengals are pretty serious about Pitts at 5.
I was just listening to the talk radio guys speak with former position coach (RB) and their now locker room analyst.
they claim their offensive line coach feels all the people in the first and second round are fairly close together. he's likely to be able to develop any of them and has a long track record (former cowboys coach?) of course they could still go with the Oregon lineman.
They believe it's coming down to Chase versus Pitts. obviously your franchise quarterback being friends with the wide receiver may influence that.
They believe Pitts has the highest likelihood of potentially being a game changer but of course tight end is not really emphasized in many offenses. the commentator mentioned that Pitts looked better on tape than he thought even. and even blocking did not look bad.
number five makes a lot of guaranteed money. let's hope Pitts gets what he deserves.
