13. Miami Dolphins (From Philadelphia): Darron Lee, OLB, Ohio State
With the addition of Maxwell in the secondary, the Dolphins now have the ability to wait until later in the draft to take a defensive back. The team lost Oliver Vernon to the New York Giants, but “replaced” him with Mario Williams.
Call me crazy, but I don’t think much stock should be thrown into that signing. Because of that, adding a linebacker at 13 is the best possible move for the Dolphins. Lee was an overlooked member of the Buckeyes defense throughout 2015, but he’s finally starting to get some recognition for his ability on the field.
He’s as agile and moves as fluid as any linebacker in the 2016 draft class, and could be a key piece to Miami’s defensive group for years to come.
