Miami Dolphins at NFL Scouting Combine
The Miami Dolphins might not have a first-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. But, they are still doing their due diligence at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Miami Dolphins News Coming out of The NFL Scouting Combine
If you’re not already following David Furones of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, you should go do it after reading this quick Dolphins blog! The following Fins notes are from his recent ‘Tweets” or articles.
Furones advised of some 2023 NFL Draft prospects that have or will interview with the Dolphins. Noah Sewell (LB/Oregon), Trenton Simpson (LB/Clemson), Demarvion Overshown (LB/Texas), Jordan Battle (S/Alabama), Tyrique Stevenson (CB/UM), and Emmanuel Forbes (CB/Miss. State) have all been linked with Miami in combine interviews. Read Battle’s draft profile.
Furones also said that CB Myles Brooks has mentioned to the Sun-Sentinel that the Dolphins have shown interest in him. You can read more about Brooks by reading his draft profile on the pages of Dolphins Thirsty. Some of these prospects might not fall to Miami who does not pick until the second round (Pick 51).
Running Backs and Other Notes
GM Chris Grier and HC Mike McDaniel have both spoken to the media while at the combine. Grier brought up that he would not mind having some of the running backs from the 2022 Miami Dolphins back in 2023. Currently, Miami does not have any running backs under contract for next season. Both Grier and McDaniel stated that they realize that work needs to be done for the running back room but they have options.
Grier on bringing back Raheem Mostert and/or Jeff Wilson, “We’re very open to those guys coming back.” Grier followed by stating, “We’ve talked about that scenario where they may be back. We may have the same backfield back next year. Obviously, they’re free agents, and that’ll play a part of it, but we’d be very excited to have them back.”
McDaniel said the thought of firing special teams coordinator Danny Crossman never crossed his mind. McDaniel advised the special teams unit did get the desired results but did not see the blame being solely on Crossman.
