After making two picks on the first night of the NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins had more opportunities to add to positions of need on Friday during Rounds 2 and 3.
No. 36 pick
The Miami Dolphins knew what they wanted on day two of the NFL draft, and they got it.
First, the Fins took versatile safety Jevon Holland from Oregon with the 36th pick in the draft. Holland offers exactly the type of flexibility that Brian Flores craves in his defense, as he can easily move up and play man-to-man on wide receivers when called upon.
No. 42 pick
As Holland was meeting with the media, the Fins made the bold move to trade up to the 42nd pick in the draft and select Notre Dame Offensive Lineman Liam Eichenberg.
He could immediately step in and boost the quality of the Fins line alongside young players like Austin Jackson, Solomon Kindley, and Robert Hunt.
No. 81 pick
Cornerback Byron Jones announced the Dolphins drafted Hunter Long, a tight end from Boston College, during Round 3.
The Dolphins added to their tight end group by taking Long with the 81st pick in the draft. Long is 6-5, 253 pounds and, according to thedraftnetwork.com, led all tight ends in 2020 with 89 targets and 57 catches.
