With their sixth round selection, the Miami Dolphins selected another defensive tackle. The team selected defensive tackle Vincent Taylor out of Oklahoma State.
The team already drafted Davon Godchaux but depth along the defensive line is needed as the verdict is still out on Jordan Phillips.
Let’s take a look at what Dolphins Twitter is saying about the selection.
Newest Dolphin Vincent Taylor was displaced by Hurricane Katrina. He's the second defensive tackle selected by the Dolphins in 30 minutes.— Adam Beasley (@AdamHBeasley) April 29, 2017
Vincent Taylor is 6-3 but he tied for the FBS lead with four blocked kicks.— Armando Salguero (@ArmandoSalguero) April 29, 2017
Another 3 tech in Taylor who has good first step. Longer than Godchaux but plays w higher pad level. Looks like those two will fight for DT3— Oscar (@OscarHazell) April 29, 2017
I like the Vincent Taylor pick for the #Dolphins. His best football is ahead of him & he can play multiple spots on the interior.— Emory Hunt (@FBallGameplan) April 29, 2017
Taylor on Katrina: "We lost everything we had. ... My roof caved in. Losing everything and now hearing my name called is a blessing."— Adam Beasley (@AdamHBeasley) April 29, 2017
Vincent Taylor says he models his game after Ndamukong Suh. Teammates now.— Armando Salguero (@ArmandoSalguero) April 29, 2017
"My coaches told me it's not where you get drafted at, what matters is what you do when you get your foot in the door," DT Vincent Taylor.— Omar Kelly (@OmarKelly) April 29, 2017
