Hill ended his career as the Buckeyes’ all-time receptions leader, a remarkable feat for a program that has produced as much NFL talent as Ohio State. That consistency and production should serve him well at the next level, and the Dolphins take him here in the fifth round to add more weapons to the offensive fold for Justin Herbert.
Clemson’s Tanner Muse turned in an excellent performance in the national championship game and tested surprisingly well at the NFL Combine. The ball production and experience playing in big-time games should make him a nice pickup on Day 3. A switch to linebacker at the pro level is possible, but at worst Muse is a star on special teams.
Alabama safety Shyheim Carter is a talented football player which makes him a great fit for the Dolphins here in the fifth round.
McKivitz is a monster of a human being (6-foot-6, 306 pounds) with experience at both tackle positions in college. He isn’t very athletic but should serve as nice depth at tackle on the back end of the roster.
Betiku Jr. is a former five-star recruit who transferred to Illinois after beginning his college career at USC. After just one season as a starter with the Illini where he logged 9.0 sacks, he decided to enter the 2020 NFL Draft.
The athletic profile is really exciting with Betiku and it just so happens that new Dolphins outside linebackers coach Austin Clark was his position coach at Illinois. That link makes Miami a logical destination for Betiku on Day 3.
Miami goes in-state for linebacker depth with Florida’s David Reese in the seventh round. Reese is experienced at middle linebacker and could carve out a nice role early on in his career as a special teams contributor.
The Dolphins round out their draft class with Michigan edge defender Mike Danna.
