Dolphins opt for Christian Wilkins at No. 13


It was believed that Christian Wilkins would go higher than the low teens. He didn’t. But he still landed at No. 13.

The Dolphins have made the former Clemson defensive lineman there first pick of the Brian Flores era.

A cornerstone of a potent defensive line in college, Wilkins brings ability, leadership, and personality to the Dolphins.

He’s the second Clemson defensive lineman to be picked tonight, and Dexter Lawrence could join them.

In taking Wilkins, the Dolphins passed on quarterback Dwayne Haskins, who could go to Washington at No. 15, unless the Falcons trade down with someone else who wants him.

  1. What a phenominal pick. A top 5 player in this draft. Tunsil, Fitzpatrick and now Wilkins. My Dolphins finally figured out what talent looks like!

    My top 5 was Bosa, Williams, Oliver, Wilkins and Burns in that order.

  2. Great pick. Starter on day 1 for sure. Trade now for Rosen fornell maybe a 3rd rounder.

  3. It’s been about a decade plus that I was this happy. Tunsil and Fitzpatrick while great picks, landed in Miami’s lap.

    Tonight they didnt over think it and got a big ugly for the trenches.

  4. Today I am filled with tears of joy. Just the way CW stood out today …. and the excitement he brought to the podium is an indicator that he is a winner.
    With all the losers we have had around here that’s super nice to see!!

  5. Now we need to sure up that O-Line. And if we can find a way to grab Drew Lock to develop we will be setting ourselves up for success. #Fins4life
