A Rundown of All the Miami Dolphins 2017 NFL Draft Picks

Sports Illustrated has a complete rundown of all of the Dolphins 2017 Draft Picks and some commentary as well.

Round 1, Pick 22 (No. 22 overall)

Charles Harris, DE, Missouri: When one thinks of the “ideal” size for a 4-3 defensive end, a guy like Cameron Wake doesn’t necessarily fit the bill. Neither does Harris, but that did not keep the Missouri product from creating havoc off the edge as a college star. Outside of Wake, there simply was not enough meaningful depth at defensive end on the Dolphins’ roster, so Harris should find himself with an ample shot at playing time. Of note is that Miami also passed on Reuben Foster, as well as on Forrest Lamp, who could have slotted in as a starting guard for them out of the gate. GRADE: B

Round 2, Pick 22 (No. 54)

Raekwon McMillan, LB, Ohio State: Applaud the thinking here by the Dolphins, who knew they still needed an infusion of athleticism at linebacker despite how satisfied they seem to be with Kiko Alonso. McMillan is a three-down guy, whether Miami opts to use him in the middle or on the outside. The surprise, if there is one: Vanderbilt LB Zach Cunningham’s still available. GRADE: B+

Round 3, Pick 33 (No. 97)

Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson: Another in-your-face cornerback with size joins a secondary that’s suddenly chock full of them. Tankersly might remind Dolphins fans of veteran Byron Maxwell or 2016 draft pick Xavien Howard—he has that same physical (to a fault) approach. He could be a very good cornerback, or he could be a guy teams attack.? GRADE: B–

Round 5, Pick 20 (No. 164) Isaac Asiata, OG, Utah

Round 5, Pick 35 (No. 178) Davon Dochaux, DT, LSU

Round 5, Pick 41 (No. 184) Nate Gerry, S, Nebraska

Round 6, Pick 10 (No. 194) Vincent Taylor, DT, Oklahoma State

Round 7, Pick 19 (No. 237) Isaiah Ford, WR, Virginia Tech
