Just a few days remain until the highly anticipated 2023 NFL Draft. Miami Dolphins fans may not be as excited by the exciting event.
The Dolphins have four picks and no first round pick. Miami’s football team was punished for interfering with Tom Brady, the legendary quarterback multiple times when he still had a contract with New England Patriots and then again in 2021 while under contract to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers .
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross made mistakes that cost him a large fine and cost the team valuable draft picks. Chris Grier will still try to make the most of his four picks.
He may trade a player to acquire more draft choices, or he might lose draft selections to try to move up into the second or third round. This article will look at five players that the Dolphins may try to add to the roster for the 2023 NFL Draft.
5. Tank Bisby (RB) (Autumn)
The Auburn product Tank Bigsby is a premium running back in the NFL Draft 2023. Bigsby averaged 5.4 yards per rush during his three-year tenure with the Auburn Tigers. He also accumulated 3351 yards of scrimmage and 25 touchdowns.
Bigsby has a physical presence, is explosive and has good blitz skills. Bigsby will give Mike McDaniel an additional weapon in his arsenal to use against the opposition. McDaniel’s rushing game is legendary and Bigsby would thrive under his guidance.
4. Siaki Ika
Siaki ika is equipped with all the necessary tools to be a dominant defensive player in the NFL. The 6’5″ 350-pound defensive tackle began his college career with LSU, before transferring to Baylor.
He played 24 games with the Baylor Bears, and he registered 3.5 sacks. He hasn’t exactly had the most impressive college football career. However, as a prospect he is a player who has the potential to be a star in the NFL. The Dolphins could pick him up in the third round with their pick.
3. Dawand Jones, Ohio State (OT)
Dawand _Jones, an offensive tackle at Ohio State who is a two-year starter has the perfect balance between running and passing. He has much work to do before he can shine in the NFL, but he could be the franchise tackle of the Dolphins.
Jones is a great fit for the Dolphins offensive line. They need some talent. The Dolphins might choose Jones with the 51st pick overall to protect their franchise quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
2. Luke Musgrave, Oregon State (TE)
It’s possible that Luke Mugrave will be gone by the time Miami makes their first NFL Draft pick in 2023. Miami GM Chris Grier will certainly be looking at the Oregon State Tight End.
The Dolphins can’t afford to miss the 6’6″ 250 pound tight end, especially after trading their starter TE Mike Gesicki away to the Patriots. Luke Musgrave is a talented tight end that the Dolphins would be interested in drafting. They may have to move higher up the draft board to get him.
1. Sam LaPorta (TE, Iowa)
The Dolphins will definitely target a tight-end in the 2023 NFL Draft. The Dolphins, despite the fact that this draft class is filled with tight ends, should still try to find a top five tight end prospect in order to replace Mike Gesicki’s talent.
The Dolphins could still pick the Iowa tight-end Sam LaPorta, who is expected to be selected in the third round. Miami can leave the draft with Dawand and LaPorta.
LaPorta was a two-year starter for Iowa, and he played in over 30 games. The Dolphins should not miss the opportunity to select the 6’4″ 250-pound tightend.
