MIAMI (CBSMiami) — The Miami Dolphins traded up two spots in the fifth round to select Utah guard Isaac Asiata and followed that fourteen picks later with LSU defensive tackle Davon Godchaux.
With three picks in the 5th round, Miami swapped two of them, No. 166 and No. 184, with the Philadelphia Eagles for No. 164 and No. 194.
The Dolphins used it on Asiata to take their first player on offense in the 2017 draft, after shoring up the defense with the first three rounds.
Listed at 6’3″, 335 lbs., Asiata, brother of Minnesota Vikings runningback Matt Asiata, is considered a tough interior lineman with a mean streak that played at both guard spots and started 43 games in college.
Davon Godchaux, 6’3″, 330 lbs., is a powerful defensive tackle prospect with an ability to both stop the run and provide pressure. He was taken at No. 178.
In the 6th round, Miami solidified the DT position with Oklahoma State’s Vincent Taylor. Taylor led his team in sacks and tackles for loss and blocked 5 kicks.
Out of Virginia Tech, wide receiver Isaiah Ford was taken with the team’s final pick in the 7th round.
