The Dolphins made a trade to get back into round five. And with that pick they acquired from Redskins, they have selected Georgia safety Reshad Jones, a player that we all knew they had interest in this offseason.

Jones measures in at 6'1, 214 and ran a 4.56 40 at the Combine. He's got a 39.5" vertical, too. He had 11 interceptions in three seasons at Georgia.

You can see a brief video of him on NFL.com.

Below is his scouting report from Draft Countdown

Strengths: Excellent Size --- Great Athlete --- Terrific Strength --- Tough --- Very Physical --- Will deliver the knockout hit --- Explosive with a burst to close --- Good hands and ball skills --- Fantastic leaping ability --- Does a real nice job in run support --- Fights through  trash well --- Versatile.

Weaknesses: Questionable instincts and awareness --- Not a reliable tackler --- Can be too aggressive at times --- Is not assignment sound --- Takes some bad angles --- Average timed speed --- A bit stiff and doesn't transition fluidly --- Poor  pad  level --- Will struggle to match up in man coverage.

And he will come in and likely compete right away with Tyrone Culver and Chris Clemons to start at free safety, though his long-term position may be strong safety - currently a position held down by Pro Bowler Yeremiah Bell.

I love this pick!
