Dolphins: BDolphins: C
Trade down from 3 to 12 to get 2 future 1st and a 3rd: A+
Trade up from 12 to 6, giving up a 2022 first, to get Waddle. Incomplete, but for now a D.
Trade up in the 2nd from 50 to 42, giving up a 2022 3rd, to get OT Eichenberg: D.
Lots of high picks are busts, especially WRs. Having 2 firsts in 2022 would've also been insurance for the possibility of drafting another QB, in case Tua underwhelms in 2021 - we'll know if he's the solution at QB by November.
P.S. Slater and some combination of Marshall and Dyami Brown (or both) would've been available in hindsight, in the 2021 draft. BTW, Miami likely gave up a higher first in 2022 (their own, keeping the SF 1st).
Should have taken Sewell at 6 as the surest bet. But if they really wanted the WR, they had to trade up. Hindsight shows the Big 3 WRs were going at 5, 6, and 11, so we would have to trade up just like Philly did. And that would have been for Smith only, who was clearly a step below Waddle and Chase in the Dolphins (and others) draft board. Following the logic, it is clear Miami traded up with the idea that Pitts/Chase/Waddle would be their target at 6 and one of the 3 would be there. I am not sure they really scouted Sewell as I suspected when they traded they expected Sewell to go at #2 or #5.
Waddle, Phillips (if healthy), Holland, Eichenberg all solid picks. The TE call over a RB or C is a bit questionable. Either looking at not resigning Gesicki next year or getting a more traditional TE and moving Gesicki to a wideout role. Must have thought his value was better than any RB or C on the board. Late round probably should have made a move to grab Khalil Herbert. Feel like they missed on the RB. But not a value position, so we will see if they can make it work just by improving the OL.
The whole key is Tua of course. Full off season, year more removed from surgery. He is on a 3 year window. Year 2 this season and 90% likely will get 2022 as long as he is not a total bomb in 2021. This is before you have to start working on the contract extension (big if...). That and multiple first rounders mean 2023 draft is where they will move on a QB replacement should it come to that.
Who know where they will land in 2022 draft. SF will be a complete unknown with Lance at QB if they move to him quickly. Could be a complete disaster in a really tough division. Would not be surprised if Miami has a top 5 pick in 2022 again.
