Miami made the first big splash in the draft, moving up to get Dion Jordan at No. 3 overall. Jordan is an explosive player who will give the Dolphins a fierce combination of outside rushers with the rookie running opposite Cameron Wake.
The Dolphins continued to build on defense with four additional selections. They addressed the loss of Jake Long in the third round with Dallas Thomas out of Tennessee. The only offensive skill players Miami took were Dion Sims (TE, Michigan State) and Mike Gillislee (RB, Florida).
Dion Jordan can be an explosive pass rusher, and working with an established player like Wake will give him good matchups. The defense should see added sacks and take-aways, and Jordan could be a great draft and stash option in IDP leagues.
That is about all of the impact you will probably see from this draft class this season.
