Dolphins select Jared Odrick

The Dolphins traded down 16 spots, and still got a great player for their defensive line.

Penn State defensive lineman Jared Odrick has been one of our favorite prospects because he’s smart, versatile, and looks like a classic 3-4 defensive end.

The Dolphins essentially decided to build strength on strength by taking Odrick.  We suspect they would have taken defensive tackle Dan Williams is he was available, but he was taken one pick before by Arizona.

Odrick played defensive tackle at Penn State, but he should end in Miami.  He joins Randy Starks, Kendall Langford, and Phillip Merline to form one of the deepest defensive end groups in the league. 

The Dolphins will have the flexibility to play more multiple fronts with four defensive linemen after this move.

  1. Nice pick. They’ll have a D-line by committee with Starks, Solia, Odrick, Langford and Merling, until Big Ferg comes back.
    However, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Merling or Langford traded though.

  2. i like jared but i really wish it would have been dan williams GO PHINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. wish Odrick would have stayed in PA.. he came from my hometown!!! Wish you the best of luck Jared!

  4. I really really was hoping for Hughes, but can’t complain about Odrick… But I think they took him to play NT… It’s a position of need and look at the prototypical Parcells NT, Ferguson and Ratliff. They are both around 305 LB, and Odrick weighs in at 304.

  5. Alright I see this countless times and now its really starting to become annoying. Can you guys please proofread your work? Arizona selected Dan Williams two picks before Miami and also its Phillip Merling. Come on, you guys look like a bunch of amateurs.

  6. Odrick is terribly overrated. He was man-handled when he played against Ohio State last year. It’s going to be great when this guy gets drunk and starts hitting people. It happened at PSU and you best believe that it will happen again.

  7. Nice pick Tuna!! You screwed up again and stupid Dolphins fans still believe in you. At least it was better than the Pat White pick.
    You are improving. In 20 years you might take the Dolphins back to the playoffs.
