Podcast: The World’s Best Miami Dolphins NFL Draft Recap

How does Chop Robinson fit for the Miami Dolphins? Who's the best Day 3 pick? And what to make of the Patrick Paul decision? We discuss it all.

Did Miami Dolphins general manager Chris Grier nail the NFL Draft? Or did Miami blow a golden opportunity to improve in 2024 and beyond?

The truth, like always, is probably somewhere in the middle. That’s why the PFN Miami Dolphins Podcast brought back Pro Football Network Draft Analyst Ian Cummings for elite insight into the team’s seven picks.

Evaluating the Miami Dolphins NFL Draft Picks

As a reminder, here are the Dolphins’ selections from last weekend:

Round 1, Pick 21
Chop Robinson, EDGE | Penn State

Round 2, Pick 55
Patrick Paul, OT | Houston

Round 4, Pick 120 (from PHI through PIT, LAR)
Jaylen Wright, RB | Tennessee

Round 5, Pick 158
Mohamed Kamara, EDGE | Colorado State

Round 6, Pick 184 (from CHI)
Malik Washington, WR | Virginia

Round 6, Pick 198
Patrick McMorris, S | California

Round 7, Pick 241
Tahj Washington, WR | USC

Grier’s draft almost uniformly earned middle-of-the-pack grades from draft analysts throughout the industry. PFN Scouting and College Football Editor Oliver Hodgkinson gave the Dolphins a B-.

Why so low?

Two decisions in particular have drawn the most criticism:

Grier taking a project in Round 2 in Paul instead of selecting one of the more NFL-ready linemen still available. Interior linemen Brandon Coleman, Isaiah Adams, and Cooper Beebe all went in the 20 picks that followed Miami’s 55th selection.

And trading a 2025 third-rounder for a 2024 fourth, which Grier used on a non-need position. Jaylen Wright is a fine player, but the Dolphins gave up a top-100 pick in next year’s draft — which is expected to be deep — to get him.

Cummings shares those concerns, but he also raves about the Dolphins’ picks in the first, fifth, and sixth rounds.
