NFL: Miami Dolphins-Head Coach Mike McDaniel Introductory Press Conference Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

Miami Dolphins General Manager Chris Grier and Assistant General Manager Marvin Allen met with the media yesterday for their annual pre-draft conference. They got to discuss about the current state of the team and gave bland answers for the upcoming draft so they don’t give away their secrets. The two GM’s were asked about the right tackle situation and Grier expects Austin Jackson to be the team’s starter. Fans may not like that answer as Jackson has underperformed since being drafted in the first round in 2020.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
