If linebacker Jarrad Davis is still on the board when the Dolphins go on the clock, chances are Davis won’t be on the board much longer. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the floor for Davis is believed to be pick No. 22, Miami.

The ceiling isn’t quite clear. The 2017 PFT Worst Mock Draft Ever has Davis going to Washington at No. 17. The Lions at No. 21 also are a possibility.

Davis, who played at Florida, is expected to compete immediately for the starting job as an outside linebacker in a 4-3 scheme.

  1. OLB don’t really play in a 4-3 defense, but very rarely does anyone run a standard 3-4, or 4-3 defense anymore, to many skills players on the offensive side of the ball.

  2. It doesn’t matter whether he falls or not; the Dolphins will still expend all their high picks on offensive players in an unending attempt to prop up mediocre quarterback Ryan Tannehill. It’s what they do every year.

  3. puzzled as to why Detroit cut one talented but injury-prone linebacker, only to replace him with younger talented but injury- prone linebacker;

    David Njoku was definitely the way to go here, as Bob would’ve gotten the most out of his potential talent in a year so we could dispense with one of the few remaining Mayhew Mistakes, Ebron, who will NEVER be a top-10 caliber TE;

    hopefully Lady Tomlinson doesn’t make it out of camp;

    from what i’ve seen of his lack of progress over the last two years, he will not be missed at all;

    maybe we can sucker a fifth or six-rounder out of someone for him;

    it worked last season, when we got rid of an over-drafted one-trick pony beach boy LB who didn’t want to be here;

    that six-rounder got us a serviceable return man who just may have the sand to go with his speed to play nickel back if he can stay on the field longer than Diggs;
