NFL: NFL Draft Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Dolphins stuck to their guns last night. Dwayne Haskins was sitting there but the team stuck to the plan and drafted an exciting defensive lineman in Christian Wilkins. The defensive line needed some help as both Cameron Wake and Robert Quinn are no longer with the team. Wilkins is a great personality and is so versatile that he ran and caught passes out of the backfield at Clemson. The Dolphins still have a ton of needs and will look to shore some of those up on day 2 of the NFL Draft.
