It is full swing mock draft season now & the 2019 off season is well underway for the Miami Dolphins, since we, yet again, missed the playoffs. The Dolphins will enter this off season with needs across the board, none greater than the QB position. The 2019 QB class is an interesting one - there’s not 1 prospect that I am in love with. I think they are all different and have different skill sets and set backs; but so far, for me, there’s not that 1 guy that I’d pound the table for. Of course, the sexy prospect at the moment is Kyler Murray - who will be a fun player to watch in the NFL next year. This isn’t my scouting report on him, but I think he’s got a special arm with elite athletic ability. Obviously his size is a major flaw; especially since he will be using his legs a lot - and to just be blunt, I have serious doubts on how long he will last in the NFL. Now as I say that, let me be clear - I don’t think he’s just an athlete playing QB, he’s got a special arm with very good accuracy; it’s enticing to watch. I really don’t know how I feel about him yet - if I had to give an opinion today - if the Dolphins drafted him, I’d say it will be a really fun and exciting 4-5 years because I just don’t think he will last that long (knock on wood - I am rooting for him very much and would never wish an injury on anyone).
Anyways, in this mock I have the Dolphins passing on Murray and selecting Jeffery Simmons, DT, Miss. St. Simmons is a safe and smart pick in my opinion here. He’s been dominate for a long time and has talent in both stopping the run and rushing the passer. People will bring up his off the field issue that he had when he was around 18, 19 years old - doesn’t bother me at all. He’s got a tremendous reputation with the Mississippi St. coaches and the community - he’s be a fantastic addition to our run defense that needs help.
