NFL Draft

What Can We Learn from Miami’s Pre-Draft Meeting History?

Job interviews are stressful; particularly when they proceed over the course of a four-month period. Once a player declares himself eligible for the NFL’s Annual Selection Meeting it’s a grueling grind up until that triumphant moment when the player his name is finally.

The process includes multiple physical tests putting the player’s athletic prowess and conditioning to the test. It’s the mental strain, however, that might prove most challenging as the prospect will meet with roughly half of the league’s teams. Those meetings feature intense sessions testing a wide range of intellect and social maturity.

Keeping tabs on these meetings is difficult. For every reported meeting there are likely three more instances where a player talks with a team off the record. From Saturdays in the fall, to the 30 official visits granted by the league, the Dolphins will vet somewhere between 300-500 players during this innumerable process.

Going as far back as Chris Grier’s promotion to General Manager, I have gathered the data on players that met with Miami in an official capacity, and which of those players wound up on Miami’s roster.

The sources for this project are scattered. Walter Football was the primary source, with our own Kevin Dern’s sheet incorporated, and our own due diligence. We’ll start with 2016.

A pair of third-round picks (Drake, Carroo), a second-rounder (Howard), a seventh-rounder (Doughty) and an undrafted free agent (Scott) went from pre-draft visit to donning the aqua and orange.

Laremy Tunsil never had an official meeting — probably because he was a presumed top-five pick prior to the infamous bong mask.

Jakeem Grant, Jordan Lucas, and Thomas Duarte never met with the ‘Phins but were each picks in rounds 6-7.

The Dolphins traded up for Xavien Howard in the second round and did the same with Leonte Carroo in the third.

Scott was the only one of the 12 UDFA signings that met with Miami pre-draft.

Miami lands six players from its 2017 prospect meets list. This time the Dolphins’ first-rounder (Harris) was a pre-draft visit; just as were the second-rounder (McMillan), fifth-rounder (Asiata), and three UDFAs (Lewis, Stringfellow, Allen).

Two of Miami’s best picks from this class (fifth and sixth-round DTs Davon Godchaux and Vincent Taylor) did not meet with the Dolphins prior to the draft.

Third-round pick Cordrea Tankersley and seventh-round pick Isaiah Ford did not meet with Miami prior to the draft.

Referring back to 2016’s focus on positions of need, Miami entered this draft with a glaring hole at defensive tackle opposite Ndamukong Suh. The Dolphins hosted 12 DT prospects but went with two that weren’t on that list.

The search for Xavien Howard’s running mate was a priority as the team likely knew Byron Maxwell wasn’t long for the team, while the endless search to find a counter-part for Reshad Jones continued at safety (to fill in for T.J. McDonald during his eight-game suspension).

Miami’s most interesting player visits came at wide receiver. With 14 players in-tow, despite emergence from Devante Parker, Jarvis Landry, and a resurgence from Kenny Stills, Miami’s specific visits were telling regarding Landry’s long-term future. Switzer and Taylor were two of the purest slot options in the entire class.

Miami drafted only two of the players of their visits list (Kalen Ballage and Quentin Poling). The Dolphins even met with a pair of kickers, neither of which was seventh-round pick Jason Sanders.

Luke Falk and Kendrick Norton wound up on Miami’s roster, but both made stops in separate NFL cities before winding up in South Florida.

The resources dedicated to the linebacker position was the most interesting portion of this story – aside from the quarterbacks. Miami met with 14 linebackers, literally all of the first round prospects at the position, and came away with Jerome Baker in the third-round (not on their list of meetings) and Quentin Poling in the seventh-round.

Miami had the option to draft Lamar Jackson and probably could’ve been more aggressive in pursuing Josh Rosen, but chose to side out on both.

The tight end decision also bears pondering as Miami did not meet with Mike Gesicki, but did have a private workout with Dallas Goedert. Goedert went one pick after Gesicki went off the board to the Dolphins.

Not a single one of Miami’s UDFAs, in 2018, met with Miami prior to the draft.

The biggest takeaway from this study is Miami’s propensity to meet with a lot of players at presumed positions of need. Under Chris Grier, the Dolphins will essentially tell you which position they intend to attack based on the reported visits. By the same token, there appears to be some false flags in the mix as we saw with the 2018 quarterback class.

This could shape up to be a very defensive-heavy draft based on that list. The offensive line is curiously underrepresented while the running backs, receivers, and tight ends are almost completely vacant.

We are just two days away, ‘Phins fans. Buckle up — the NFL’s best weekend of the offseason is upon us and we’ll have you covered every step of the way at Locked On Dolphins.

NFL Draft

Miami Dolphins select Ohio State’s Isaiah Prince in the sixth round

With their sixth-round pick and 202 overall, the Miami Dolphins selected offensive tackle Isaiah Prince out of Ohio State

The Dolphins received the 202nd pick as part of the package in Day 2’s trade-down with the Saints. After moving down and chipping in their fourth-rounder, the Fins got the late sixth-rounder in return as part of the deal.

The Dolphins took Isaiah Prince out of another strong program that consistently shoots out offensive lineman, Ohio State. Prince’s teammate, Michael Jordan, went earlier on Day 3 to the Bengals.

Isaiah Prince is a tough evaluation. I wasn’t a big fan and Prince often times was on the losing end of the point of attack. He was called for numerous holding calls and I saw him on the ground a lot. This might be because he has less-than-ideal foot movement. I am interested to see how he factors into the Dolphins’ grand scheme. He might specialize in becoming the swing tackle.

Isaiah Prince is very raw, but the Ohio State pedigree for trench players speaks for itself, so this could turn into a good late-round pick with a little time and development.

Dolphins Draft Wisconsin Linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel

Travis Wingfield

Published

on

Miami had quite a wait before its first day-three selection. In the fifth-round, with the 151st-pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Dolphins selected Wisconsin Linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel. A JUCO transfer, Van Ginkel picked up 12 sacks and 19.5 tackles for loss in his Badgers’ career (off the bench in 2017, starter in 2018). The linebacker added two interceptions, five pass breakups, and four forced fumbles.

The Dolphins have a glaring hole in the assumed Kyle Van Noy role, in a player that can play inside and outside at the linebacker position. Miami will attempt to develop Van Ginkel to set the edge in the running game, blitz the quarterback, and move all over the formation.

Combine Results

40-yard dash: Did not run
Bench Press: 17 reps
Vertical: 38 inches
Broad: 123 inches
3-cone: 6.89
Short Shuttle: 4.14

Van Ginkel has a similar build to Van Noy. At 6-foot-3, 241 pounds with 32 1/2 inch arms, the length and backfield production surely attracted Miami to Van Ginkel’s game.

Via that report from NFL.com, Van Ginkel plays with a high-motor, plays through injuries, and has the requisite athletic ability to play a multi-faceted role in the defense. His lean build and lack of power makes him a questionable edge-setter, which could prove problematic in the new defense. He allows blockers into his frame and doesn’t disengage very often.

Van Ginkel figures to make the squad on special teams and serve as depth in the linebackers room.

What positions will the Miami Dolphins address on Day 3 of the Draft

The Miami Dolphins still have four picks left in the 2019 NFL Draft. Which positions should and will be addressed by the time the dust settles on on the 209 NFL Draft?

With the trades that came yesterday on Day 2, the Dolphins are left without a fourth-round pick. They used pick 116 as a kickback-pick to the Saints when trading down from 48 to 62. Although they scooped the Saints’ 2020 second-rounder, the Dolphins will now have to wait until pick 151 to get their first selection of the day.

At 151, partway through the fifth round, the Dolphins could still get some good value. I would look for them to go in on the edge rushers. Some guys I would personally like to see at that pick are Arkansas State’s Ronheen Bingham, Eastern Michigan’s Maxx Crosby, Georgia’s Jonathan Ledbetter, Iowa’s Anthony Nelson, or Oregon’s Justin Hollins.

Charles Omenihu is surprisingly still available, but I expect him to be selected sometime during the fourth round. Here’s a more comprehensive list of available edge rushers from Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller.

I also expect the Miami Dolphins to address the offensive line again at some point during Day 3. Michael Deiter, the third-round pick, is a good start, but I’d like to see another draft pick get dedicated to the interior offensive line. I wouldn’t be upset to see the Dolphins select a right tackle, either, even if Jesse Davis is already tentatively penciled in there.

Some targets that I’d like in the later rounds include Clemson’s Mitch Hyatt, Notre Dame’s Alex Bars, Arkansas’ Hjalte Froholdt, Kentucky’s Bunchy Stallings, Florida’s Martez Ivey or Miami’s Venzell Boulware. Here are some more prospects that could be available later today for the offensive line. Here’s a second perspective from Kevin Brown on some of the talent still on the board for Day 3, as well.

The third position I’d like to see get selected is cornerback or safety. There are still some hidden gems available and some of them could still be available in the seventh round.  Some of my personal favorites include Sheldrick Redwine from Miami, Xavier Crawford from Central Michigan, Jimmy Moreland from James Madison, Hamp Cheevers from Boston College, Ka’dar Hollman from Toledo, and Blace Brown from Troy. Here are some rankings for the best remaining defensive backs.

The final position I would address is quarterback. Yes, you read that right. I’m still taking a flier on a late-round quarterback and keeping three of them on the roster for 2019. Josh Rosen is the new kid on the block, but I would nab someone like Garnder Minshew with the 234th and final selection for the Dolphins. For a better understanding of the late-round quarterbacks, here’s a piece I did talking about the deep-dive prospects.

Once it’s all said and done, I am hoping that the Miami Dolphins will have drafted several of these positions. Edge, DB, offensive line and quarterback are on the wish list for the remainder of the draft.
