With the team having a dire need at safety after being already thin and then releasing Yeremiah Bell, I am actually excited that this kid is still there to pick.
To be honest, I was gonna take him in the 4th or 5th round and then kinda forgot about him.
He has a history at corner, so he can cover but is 6'3'' and there arent many of those guys that can play corner in the NFL at that size...good for him he moved to safety last year.
He blew up with 102 tackles and 3 picks in his first year at safety.
Its not often that a team gets 2 starting quality safeties with investments of only 6th and 7th round picks.
In the 7th round of the 2012 NFL draft, The Miami Dolphins select
Neiko Thorpe, FS, Auburn
That concludes the Dolphins draft and here is my haul:
Lots of potential there.
