Today, in my ongoing series looking at the Miami Dolphins' 2013 draft prospect by prospect, I take a look at the second of our two third round selections. Will Davis was the pick after Miami decided to initially trade out of the third round, and then back up to select the corner out of Utah State University. This pick, to me, is possibly the biggest head-scratcher of the entire weekend. Let's take a look at the breakdown.
Tim Tebow has been cut by the New York Jets, ending (hopefully) what has been one of the biggest debacles in the NFL in recent memory. Tebow has, largely undeservedly, dominated the headlines and newspapers since he came into the league. Whether it's been for his "performance" on the field, his religious views on and off the field, or the rampant speculation surrounding whether or not he can play, Tebow has been on the minds of most people in football circles. With the move today, which was a certainty after the Jets drafted Geno Smith in the second round, hopefully all this can come to an end.
Yesterday I outlined the talents and shortcomings of Miami's second round draft choice, Jamar Taylor. Next up is the first of our two third round selections Dallas Thomas, the offensive lineman out of Tennessee. Offensive line is huge need for Miami going into the season, and the addtion of Thomas, though not addressing our biggest need on the line, a stud left tackle, should provide Miami some much needed depth on the line. Let's take a look.
Now that all the selections have been made and the draft is over, it's time to reflect. Every person has their opinions on how their team did in the draft, and they're letting them be known. The likes of Mel Kiper, Todd McShay and Mike Mayock are coming out with their analysis on how they think every team did in the draft. I would like to take a slightly more in-depth approach, so in the next week I'm going to be taking a look at each of the players Miami drafted (with the exception of Dion Jordan, as I have already said plenty on that front). I'm going to take a look at what each player does well, what they need to improve upon, and where (if at all) they fit on the current roster. Today's player is Jamar Taylor, our second round draft choice from Boise State University.
Day three of the draft is filled with guys who, most likely, will only be special teams contributors or won't even make the team. As such, I don't know much about them and don't have anything intelligent to say about them. Much like yesterday, I'm putting the onus on you, the viewers, to make up your own minds and possibly tell me what I should think. Videos provided by YouTube and www.draftbreakdown.com.
