The Miami Dolphins will wrap up their trifecta of first round picks here at No. 17, where they will be picking instead of the Houston Texans. The Dolphins got this pick from the Texans during the Laremy Tunsil trade, and over the next two drafts, they will not only have five first round picks, but nine in the first two rounds alone.
While the rebuild is certainly on in Miami, they could go out and get three instant impact players in a very deep 2020 NFL Draft class. Miami traded away former first round pick Minkah Fitzpatrick to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday, and with their first round pick in 2020, they may look to bring in his replacement.
Kristian Fulton from LSU is the definition of a shut-down corner, allowing only six first downs or touchdowns all of last season. The Dolphins are starting from scratch with this rebuild, and by the time the first round is over, they could have already replaced the likes of Tunsil and Fulton, while bringing in their new franchise quarterback.
The Los Angeles Chargers have to be one of the more frustrating teams to root for, as they look so good one week, and then suffer a horrifying loss the next. After a strong victory in Week 1 over the Indianapolis Colts, the Chargers traveled to Detroit to take on the Lions in Week 2, and lost to a significantly weaker team on the road.
When looking at this roster, it is clear why they are struggling, as they are missing so many key pieces. Derwin James is one of the better young safeties in the league, and he is injured, as is Russell Okung, their big left tackle who is dealing with a pulmonary embolism that will keep him out for at least a month.
Los Angeles needs to find a long-term solution at left tackle, and they may want to take a shot on a player like Trey Adams from Washington. Adams could have been a first round pick in 2019 had he not injured his knee early in the 2018 college football season, and with another year under his belt, he is more than likely slated for the first round once again next April.
