DAVIE, Fla. — Buffalo and Arizona made bold moves in the NFL Draft last year to get the quarterbacks they wanted. Now, Miami is on the clock.
Kyler Murray’s announcement Monday that he is committing to the NFL instead of baseball might have changed the Dolphins’ draft outlook.
Now that Murray, the 5-foot-10ish Heisman Trophy winner from Oklahoma, is in the mix, the race could be on to move into the top five (or at least the top 10) to ensure the ability to draft a top quarterback, either Murray or Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins.
So how high should Miami jump?
Not very high at all.
This isn’t the year for Miami to trade up to get a quarterback. It’s not worth the price.
If either Haskins or Murray is there when Miami picks at No. 13 — and there’s no chance Haskins is there — you take him and feel good about what you got.
If neither is available, the Dolphins would be better served drafting a pass…
