Unless Tankersley and Lippett look bad, I don't see them doing this. It could be a good move though.

I'm hearing that free agent rookie CB Jalen Davis is looking very good in practice, and probably a lock to make the team. We'll know more when they start to hit, but his coverage skills are good.

Can never have too many good corners and pass rushers.

Barry Jackson describes the Supplemental Draft and discusses the 3 cornerbacks who could be selected if we are unhappy with our CB situation.


Barry Jackson wrote:
The Dolphins are open to upgrading at corner if the perfect fit emerges and NFLdraftscout.com’s Rob Rang expects three defensive backs to be available in the July 11 supplemental.

But all three have blemishes and it’s a stretch to say any would be better this season than what the Dolphins already have.

Mississippi State safety Brandon Bryant, Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal and Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander are those players.

Here's how the process works: Teams interested in selecting a player email the league with the player they would draft and in what round. If they use a fourth-rounder, then that team would forfeit a fourth rounder in next year’s draft.

Here’s what Rang had to say about the two cornerbacks:

Beal (6-0, 185) earned second-team All-MAC honors last season, leading the Broncos with 10 passes broken up. He was overshadowed, at times, by former teammate Darius Phillips (a fifth-round pick by Cincinnati this spring) but Beal offers an intriguing upside due to his combination of size, speed and physicality. Though his numbers dropped significantly (from 55 in 2016 to just 22 last season), Beal's willingness to tackle was the primary reason why the former prep receiver was asked to make the transition to the defensive side of the ball early his career in Kalamazoo. Beal was set to enter his senior season as NFLDraftScout.com's No. 30 cornerback.

"If teams are comfortable with the off-field issues that plagued Alexander at Virginia Tech, he could wind up being the player that generates the most interest.

"[Recently], Virginia Tech officially announced that Alexander, a senior, was no longer part of the team because he failed to live up to his academic obligations. He missed three previous games with the Hokies due to suspensions, including one for testing positive for marijuana. While teams will want to investigate Alexander's character, his talent and production speak for themselves.”

No, thank you. Nothing to see here IMO.

A couple of things from the Barry Jackson article struck a note with me. First, the good assessment of Fitzpatrick although couched in a not now but future perspective, which means we'll have to wait to see the fruits of the pick. The second thing from the article was the prospects of a very long season, and a top five pick, if Tannehill goes down. Now, I like the prospects of a top five pick, it will surely bring a lot of debate here, but if that happens is there a QB there better than Lamar Jackson? I wanted Jackson and boy it would be sure nice to have him rather than the journeymen QBs we have now if Tannehill were to go down, a prospect not too far fetched it seems. Our future would start right there. OK, I know this topic is old news and I admit that having Jackson on the bench is worth less than Fitzpatrick on the field but no way a Fitzpatrick can have the long term benefits of a top QB, even one with the questions that surrounded Jackson.

So, I sure hope that Tannehill stays healthy for we have nothing in reserve there. But if he were to go down and we suffer a 3, 4 win season? A top QB prospect better be there next draft or we will be regretting not having taken Jackson this year.
