2014 NFL Draft Grades: Miami Dolphins

The NFL Draft has come and gone and it’s now time to reflect on how each team did despite the fact that we won’t really know until much further into the future. Still, we can get a fell of how players might do in their immediate careers based off of what they did in college and how well they fit into the systems they were drafted into.

Draft Picks

Pick Player
1.19 Ja’Wuan James, OL , Tennessee
2.31 Jarvis Landry, WR , LSU
3.3 Billy Turner, OG, North Dakota St.
5.15 Arthur Lynch, TE, Georgia
5.31 Jordie Tripp, OLB, Montana

Best Pick: Jarvis Landry/WR/LSU

I’m really only picking Landry because I have to pick someone, but this draft class stinks for the Dolphins. Landry is a bright spot though, as he adds a much needed target to the offense and may be the smartest pick that Miami made. He can compliment Mike Wallace and maybe even replace him if things continue to go south there.

Worst Pick: Ja’Wuan James/OL/Tennessee 

James might turn out to be solid but the Dolphins reached for him at No. 19 overall. They tried to trade down but at that point you need to lower the price to accommodate a trade. Miami could have picked up valuable picks later on but didn’t and instead reached for a guy that may be solid but cost them picks that could have landed them a guard in the second round.

2014 Draft Grade: D
