Fins got highly-rated weapons, and spread the wealth. Good so far. Meanwhile, the Skins cut Beck, after drafting RG3 and Kirk Cousins.
I always wondered if Beck was an improvement over Brock Berlin-No.
Round 1, Pick 8 (8) Ryan Tannehill QB 6'4" 221 Texas A&M 87.0
Pick Analysis: Mayock's take: "I have him rated as the 19th best player in the draft, which tells you I don't think he's ready to be a heavy contributor this year. I watched every throw he made on tape this year. All the out-breaking routes are phenomenal. Where he gets in trouble are the in-breaking routes where he stares the receiver down, pats the ball and throws interceptions."
Round 2, Pick 10 (42) Jonathan Martin OT 6'5" 312 Stanford 87.0
Pick Analysis: Mayock's take: "First-round talent right here, tremendous arm length. I call him a little bit of a finesse player. Doesn't mean he's not tough, but he's so good with his feet and understands angles. I believe the Dolphins just got themselves a starter on either the right or left side."
Round 3, Pick 9 (72) Olivier Vernon DE 6'2" 261 Miami 82.0
Pick Analysis: Mayock's take: "Out of all the underclassmen that came out this year, and I didn't think many should have, Vernon is one that I banged the table for. He's a solid 4-3 defensive end who can get edge pressure on the quarterback."
Round 3, Pick 15 (78) Michael Egnew TE 6'5" 252 Missouri 71.5
Pick Analysis: Mayock's take: "When you think Missouri tight end, you think freakish athlete who doesn't block. Well this is true again. He can really run, and he's a natural hands catcher."
Round 4, Pick 2 (97) (From Colts through 49ers) Lamar Miller RB 5'11" 212 Miami 84.5
Pick Analysis: Bucky Brooks' take: Miller gives the Dolphins a home run threat in the backfield. He is explosive with the ball in his hands and displays outstanding burst when running on the perimeter. Miller needs to show better toughness in pass protection, but could develop into a dynamic weapon as a situational playmaker.
Round 5, Pick 20 (155) Josh Kaddu LB 6'3" 239 Oregon 68.5
Pick Analysis: Bucky Brooks' take: Kaddu is an athletic linebacker with speed and quickness. He excels in a "run and chase" scheme that allows him to use his speed to harass running backs at the second level.
Round 6, Pick 13 (183) B.J. Cunningham WR 6'1" 211 Michigan St. 73.5
Pick Analysis: Bucky Brooks' take: Cunningham is an underrated pass catcher with skills. He is a good route runner with savvy and quickness and could make immediate contributions as a third or fourth receiver.
