Well, unless the Dolphins have added a good evaluator of offensive line talent, we should stop drafting them after the first round. Heck, we almost didn't keep Ju'Wuan James this year and he was a first round pick. Maybe we should stick to overpaying them in free agency and avoiding old offensive linemen who are on the downside of their career.
Overall WAR of drafted players for the Dolphins: 24thhttps://www.profootballfocus.com/news/p ... i-dolphins
Drafted Players with the Highest WAR (per season):
– Jarvis Landry
Not the prototypical No. 1 receiver, but pretty valuable in doing what he was asked, earning PFF grades in the 80.0s each of his four seasons.
– DeVante Parker
Has struggled with injuries, but played well at times. In 2016, he averaged a respectable 1.60 yards per route run.
– Jay Ajayi
Was fantastic in 2016 (3.5 yards per carry after contact), only to be traded in 2017.
– Vincent Taylor
Graded consistently well in limited playing time in 2017, generating 13 stops and nine total pressures.
– Bobby McCain
Allowed just a 78.4 passer rating into his coverage in 2017.
Drafted Players with the Lowest WAR (per season):
– Dallas Thomas
Had one of the worst seasons we’ve seen from an interior lineman in 2015, where he surrendered 10 sacks and 10 quarterback hits.
– Jamar Taylor
Has given up 336, 575, 692 and 718 yards into his coverage the last four seasons successively. In 2015, with the Dolphins he allowed a 134.8 rating into his coverage.
– Jamil Douglas
In 2015 – on 529 snaps – he allowed 34 total pressures and struggled as a run-blocker.
– Billy Turner
Earned a 39.2 PFF grade in 2015, the season where he played his most snaps, almost exclusively due to poor run-blocking.
– Jelani Jenkins
Gave up a 136.4 passer rating into his coverage in 2016, and 114.4 for his career.
