In the 3rd round with Pick #73 the Miami Dolphins Select Kenyan Drake RB Alabama
The Dolphins got their RB and they took Kenyan Drake out of Alabama in Round 3. He is a blazer who runs 4.3 40 yard dash and will be a returner on special teams. Jarvis Landry's days of returning kicks is over with this pick. Landry is too valuable to risk on special teams anymore. Drake is not nor ever will be an every down RB. So, Jay Ajai is going to get first crack to be the Dolphins starting RB. Drake is an outstanding pass catcher so he will be on the field on 3rd downs. He is small, undersized but super fast. Gase will have to be creative and find ways to get the ball in his hands.
I would have taken Kenneth Dixon here but I get the Drake pick and trust Gase to use him correctly. He is the opposite of Jay Aji and will complement Ajai well. Plus he will be a full time return guy who will get on the field early as a special teams contributor.
