While we still have a few picks in the late rounds, I don't feel like they're going to make or brake this draft class for the average fan. This draft didn't go like many of us expected, but I'm not surprised that we went defense early since that's the Flores way. I do believe that we selected 4 day-one starters so far and I'll briefly discuss each of them below. Personally, I think Waddle is an excellent fit for the Dolphins since we haven't had a true slot receiver for several years now. Fuller and Parker will be on the perimeter with Williams mixed in, so I don't know that Chase or Smith fit what we were looking for. Waddle is pure speed and can cut on a dime while quickly reaching full speed again within a few steps, and this kid is going to make an instant impact lurking over the middle and flashing past safeties for wide open TD throws. Next, let's talk about Hunter Long...or more specifically, how he's not Pitts. I would not have made this pick and I think he's the worst of the five, specifically because he simply is not aggressive at 6'5" and 255 pounds. If this kid was a dominant blocker and could fit that Anthony Fasano mold then I'd be thrilled, but it's just not who he is and it would be a multi-year project to get him there. The good stuff is that he's an able catcher, very smart player and takes coaching really well...so I can see why they liked him. But I just don't see the fit since Gisecki does virtually everything better than this kid. To be fair, Pitts wasn't a great fit for us either but at least he could replace Gisecki (as in, a big, nimble slot receiver who pretends to be a TE). Long could start day one but it's a different route tree...so I'll reserve judgement for now. The thought of replacing Gisecki at all is ridiculous to me since he's been the only healthy receiver for years now. Jaelan Phillips is a definite Flores pick since he's sort of a Swiss Army knife of a defender. Big, quick player who always plays hard against the run or the pass. I don't know a lot about him past watching some film, but he looks like an immediate upgrade in an area of need. Like all DE's, I look at these picks as a prospect that could be great or could bust, so I don't want to toot too many horns here and make it sound like he's a sure thing. The kid's fast and plays super-hard every single down....that's all I got. Jevon Holland was actually projected to be a late 2nd/early 3rd round selection, but Miami felt that he was the best safety in the draft. Like so many of our other picks, he has a high motor, great intelligence and he's very active on the field reading plays and reacting. Great speed, great vision and he's a true ball-hawk, which could have a huge impact on this defense in the years to come. I really like this pick and think this kid has a ton of potential. Finally, Liam Eichenberg, a lineman that several analysts had as their best overall tackle in the draft. This kid is mean, aggressive and completely fits the mold that we've been building of big bruisers who play with a chip on their shoulder. He's the reason we didn't take Sewell and this kid basically "set our draft board" by allowing the Waddle pick early. He hasn't given up a sack in 2 1/2 seasons, really good run blocker....not much else to say. Great overall pick! Overall, I love the picks of Waddle, Eichenberg and Holland. I like Phillips since he's as good of a prospect as any in the draft. Hunter Long...good kid, hard worker...and he'll probably end up a 6-10 starter as a blue collar worker that just gets things done. I definitely don't love the pick but I can understand the thinking behind it- there's massive value there. Folks, this is an A+ draft. I know we didn't get our stud RB and I'm still pouting about that as well, but it was a very smart draft by our organization. And one more thing- for those who keep saying, "We spent two 1st rounders on Waddle..." Stop with that nonsense already! We spent a 1st on Waddle and picked up a 2023 1st, which means Waddle was essentially free. His cumulative cost was ZERO 1st rounders total!
