The Miami Dolphins have made four selections thus far through the 2012 NFL Draft with three rounds complete. The day 3 selection process kicks off at noon EDT, but before we get there, let's look at how SB Nation has graded the entire two days for Miami, and at the Dolphins' day two picks (Rounds 2-3), and the grades they have been given for each of those picks by CBSSports.com.
Of the entire Miami draft so far, Joel Thorman over at SBNation.com continues to grade the Dolphins as a B. He writes: "Not a bad draft when you pick up your future quarterback (Ryan Tannehill), offensive tackle (Jonathan Martin) and tight end (Michael Egnew)."
Looking back at the picks from the last day of the draft, CBSSports.com has gone through every pick, commenting and grading each. Here's how the grade the Miami Dolphins second round pick of Jonathan Martin:
|No. 42: Dolphins select: Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford||Grade|
|He has to play right tackle for the Dolphins, which means he has to be much more physical than he's been in college.|
And, the CBSSports.com look at the third round picks for the Dolphins:
|No. 72: Dolphins select: Olivier Vernon, DE, Miami (Fla.)||Grade|
|This is a player with raw pass-rush ability, but always didn't play to it. Could be a nice situational player on third down.|
|No. 78: Dolphins select: Michael Egnew, TE, Missouri||Grade|
|I love this pick. The Dolphins get a move tight end who can split wide and create problems for a defense. He won't block like a tough guy, but he will help in the passing game.|
