We all liked this pick late in the 3rd round. The reason he lasted this long was because he was inconsistent at Clemson, but he is a playmaker. The Dolphins really wanted him in the draft and were happy that he was there for us. I hope the fans will understand that that he is a rookie and will make mistakes.

Cordrea Tankersley was composed. Tankersley allowed 36 yards on seven targets, per Pro Football Focus. And for the most part, he was solid. Tankersley showed that he can stay closer to receivers while running alongside them than benched veteran Byron Maxwell. Tanklersley played tough and physical and did not seem overwhelmed by the moment. After all, his NFL debut was as a starter. Late in the first quarter, Tankersley made his standout play of the game, and, frankly, it should have resulted in an interception. Dropping back near his own end zone, Tankersley read the eyes of Saints quarterback Drew Brees. Brees tried to fool Tankersley by looking him off, but the rookie actually almost fooled Brees with a veteran-like move. While floating, Tankersley kept close enough quarters to the Saints receiver and broke on the ball quickly enough to break up the completion. Tankersley showed enough in his first start that he’ll keep the job. He’s somewhat raw, yes, but somewhat promising. In Tankersley and Howard, Miami has two young players who want to play physical and may take a few extra penalties, but are going to compete, which is what defensive coordinator Matt Burke wants, more than anything.

He was clearly exposed.

Verner sucks. He was embarrassed big time by the Jests for a long TD. He wasn't even in the same zip code as the WR who simply ran by him.

Yes...he was horrible. Lost in coverage and takes bad angles and demonstrates an inability to tackle ball carriers.
