In the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins selected cornerback Cordrea Tankersley.
Tankersley was on the Dolphins radar during the offseason and I’m sure the team is happy they got one of their guys.
Let’s take a look at what Dolphins Twitter is saying about the selection.
Cordrea Tankersley said coming out of high school he modeled his game after Byron Maxwell. Now they're teammates.— Armando Salguero (@ArmandoSalguero) April 29, 2017

Cordrea Tankersley is a good, physical corner. Don't want him playing off too much right now but he'll challenge for playing time right away— Ian Wharton (@NFLFilmStudy) April 29, 2017
Dolphins wanted to address all 3 levels of their defense. Done: Charles Harris, Raekwon McMillan, Cordrea Tankersley. Not bad.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 29, 2017
