Miami Dolphins Top 10 Best Draft Picks: #9 Patrick Surtain

The 9th best Miami Dolphins draft pick of all time is...

Patrick Surtain, who was a 1998 2nd round pick, 44th overall.

Surtain is an all-time favorite of many Dolphin fans. Selected out of Southern Mississippi, he made an instant impact as a rookie, playing in all 16 games and intercepting two passes. Little did we know what was in store for this outstanding corner during his 7 year career in Miami.

Surtain was a three time Pro Bowler and was named a first-team All-Pro in 2002. His 29 career interceptions as a member of the Dolphins places him fifth in team history. And together with teammate Sam Madison, Surtain was part of the best cornerback duo in franchise history.

Some cornerbacks who were selected ahead of Surtain in 1998 include Terry Fair and Artrell Hawkins.
