Heading into the 2023 NFL Draft, we knew the Miami Dolphins weren’t going to turn heads with their four draft picks. Their first selection, Cam Smith, did raise some eyebrows though. The Dolphins didn’t need another cornerback but if either Jalen Ramsey or Xavien Howard gets hurt, it will be nice to have Smith slide into a spot along with Kader Kohou. The Dolphins also didn’t need more speed on offense, but they went out and drafted Devon Achane in the third round. Achane brings more speed to an already fast offense and should find a nice role for himself.
You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
