Making A Splash – Miami Dolphins 2023 Draft Profile

The Miami Dolphins have made big moves in free agency and the trade market over last two years that have made their drafts easier. This year they only have four total picks but could still make a major splash in the draft.

Sean Tucker, RB, Syracuse

Josh Whyle, TE, Cincinnati

Cedrice Paillant, Guard, Marshall

The Dolphins have one of the best collections of talent in the league on offense. The one position that needs some help is the running back room. The Dolphins could look to add a player that is a front first round pick to add to an already prolific system.

Sean Tucker is a complete running back with good power, balance, and speed. His most overlooked quality is his pass protection. He doesn’t shy away from pass rushers and with Tua Tagovailoa’s recent rash of injuries they need someone to be his personal protector.

After the loss of Mike Gesicki in free agency the Dolphins will need to replace his production. Josh Whyle is a great option and would be able to be productive early. He is a route technician who uses every trick in the book to get open. He is tough to tackle in the open field and has the speed to stretch the field on seam routes. Adding Whyle to the already stout passing attack would make Miami one of the most unstoppable units in football.

The Dolphins need to keep their signal callers upright and healthy to be successful. The interior could use some help and in the late rounds they could find a gem. Cedrice Paillant is a natural guard with a mean streak. He is a mover of men and also possesses the sound technique to stick with pass rushers. Paillant can come in a complete with Liam Eichenberg for the starting guard spot and be an upgrade in year one.

They may not have much but the Dolphins can still make big moves in this year’s draft.
