Dolphins draft picks 2020: Who did Miami take? Full list of NFL Draft selections

Sporting News

The Dolphins came into the 2020 NFL Draft with 14 picks — the most of any team — and wound up taking 11 players, most notably Alabama quarterback Tua Tagavailoa with the fifth overall pick.

In addition to Tagavailoa, Miami also drafted USC tackle Austin Jackson and Auburn cornerback Noah Igbinoghene in the first round. SN's Vinnie Iyer had both selections as reaches, considering they had needs at safety and running back. They later took a safety in the third round, grabbing Texas' Brandon Jones, but never made the move to grab a running back through the draft, instead trading a fifth-round pick to the 49ers for Matt Breida.

Here's a look at the rest of the Dolphins' picks in the 2020 NFL Draft:

Dolphins NFL Draft needs

  • Offensive line: The Dolphins need two new tackles to protect whoever their young quarterback is.

  • Safety: Miami has some decent players at safety like Eric Rowe, but there is plenty of room for improvement.

  • Defensive line: Christian Wilkins is a good piece in the middle of the defensive line to build off of, but the Dolphins need multiple pass rushers off the edge.

  • Running back: Ryan Fitzpatrick led the Dolphins in rushing last season. Need I say more?

  • Quarterback: The most important and the most obvious. Fitzpatrick can be a bride guy, but who will lead the Dolphins out of the abyss?
