The 2018 NFL Draft is now complete, with 256 players selected to the 32 teams. The Miami Dolphins systematically attacked the draft this year, grabbing highly rated players while filling holes all across the roster. They added starters and depth. They added pass catchers, blockers, coverage guys, and runners. They basically did what they needed to do to make this a very successful draft.
The Dolphins made eight picks in the seven rounds.
R1.11 (11): Minkah Fitzpatrick, S, Alabama
R2.10 (42): Mike Gesicki, TE, Penn State
R3.9 (73): Jerome Baker, LB, Ohio State
R4.23 (123) (from CLE via CAR): Durham Smythe, TE, Notre Dame
R4.31 (131) (from NE via PHI): Kalen Ballage, RB, Arizona State
R6.35 (209) (from LAR via KC): Cornell Armstrong, DB, Southern Miss
R7.9 (227) (from SF): Quentin Poling, LB, Ohio
R7.11 (229): Jason Sanders, K, New Mexico
