Phillips is a 6-5, 329-pounder described by one scout as a potential “Pro Bowl nose [tackle].” The former Oklahoma Sooner registered 37 tackles as a redshirt-sophomore last season and is regarded as one of the most physically gifted players in the entire draft.
The second-round pick came after Miami moved down via a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Dolphins sent the Eagles picks No. 47 and No. 191 for No. 52, No. 145, and No. 156, giving the Dolphins four fifth-round picks at the moment.READ MORE: Road To Reopening: Miami-Dade, Broward Public Schools Planning 100% In-Person Instruction In The Fall
Some expect Miami to package some of their late picks to move back into the third round, after shelling out a third-rounder for receiver Kenny Stills in the offseason.
