Grading the 2015 NFL Draft days after the fact may be a frivolous undertaking to some, but that hasn’t halted the overwhelmingly positive reviews of the Miami Dolphins’ picks from piling out.
CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco gave the Dolphins an “A” in his column grading all 32 NFL teams.READ MORE: Neighbors 4 Neighbors, Miami Dolphins To Serve 500 Hot Meals To Miami-Dade Schools Families
“I love second-round defensive tackle Jordan Phillips,” Prisco wrote. “He will be a better NFL player than he showed at Oklahoma. Playing next to Ndamukong Suh will really help his game.”
As for “third-day gems.” Prisco labels fourth-round pick Jamil Douglas, an offensive tackle at Arizona State last year, a player the NFL columnist thinks can be “a dominant guard, his original position.”READ MORE: Royal Family Pays Final Respects To Prince Philip, Funeral Held At St. George's Chapel
Prisco’s overall analysis:
“The Dolphins had a nice draft. Whoever was making the picks — Dennis Hickey or Mike Tannenbaum — deserves a lot of credit. First-round pick DeVante Parker will be a nice target for Ryan Tannehill. The first two picks were outstanding.”
Pete also joined the Marc Hochman Show with Zach Krantz on 560 WQAM yesterday to share more insight on the Dolphins’ picks and their chances in a competitive AFC East going forward.MORE NEWS: 60 Years After The Bay Of Pigs Invasion, Many Cuban Americans' Distrust Of The Democratic Party Still Affects National Politics
