In the latest SB Nation three-round mock draft by Matthew Fairburn, the Miami Dolphins come back with a massive haul due to their five picks.
In order, the Dolphins selected tight end Tyler Eifert of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, corner Jordan Poyer of the Oregon State Beavers, safety Eric Reid of the LSU Tigers, Fresno State Bulldogs safety Phillip Thomas and defensive end Sam Montgomery of LSU.
This would be an incredible draft for Miami. The Dolphins need help in the worst way in their secondary after losing Yeremiah Bell, Vontae Davis and Sean Smith over the last two years. Fairburn understood this and picked up Poyer, who will immediately step in and start. Poyer excels at zone coverage, something Miami does quite often.
Reid is a terrific player who might be the most dynamic safety in the draft. Anyone who watches Reid knows what a playmaker the youngster can be. In the SEC, Reid stood out.
In the first round, Eifert makes all the sense in the world. The Dolphins need to get quarterback Ryan Tannehill a security blanket and Eifert is the best in tight end in the draft.
Thomas is another player who can contribute right away and will probably come in for sub-packages. Montgomery is a tough player to project. If Montgomery decides he wants to play hard, he's a first-round talent. If not, he will probably be out of football soon.
