2015 Dolphins Draft Picks
The Dolphins traded their 6th round pick for DE Williams Hayes and the Rams 7th round pick this year. While Hayes is 32 years old, I really like this move as he will fit in very well into our defensive lineman rotation. He still has a high motor and played well for the Rams. Obviously the Rams are in another rebuild mode, and looking to get younger. This is a move for us to be competitive while we are looking to get younger as well.
Hayes has been an effective situational pass rusher, generating 26.5 sacks as a part-timer over the past five seasons. He'll provide juice for a Dolphins line that seems comfortable rotating players in and out.
Hayes, 31, is under contract for $5.5 million this year and $5 million in 2018. He started 14 games for the Rams last year and had 43 tackles and five sacks.
Here are Pro Football Focus' stats on our new DE. Let's talk about it here.
