The news came through earlier this week that the Miami Dolphins would not only be present at the Senior Bowl 2021, but that their coaching staff will be ready to coach one of the two teams of NFL hopefuls. It’s a massive win for the Dolphins, who will reap the benefits of being so skewed toward building their franchise through the NFL draft under general manager Chris Grier and head coach Brian Flores.
What are the prospects to notice for Flores and the dolphins before the event, held at the end of the month in Mobile, Alabama?
Here are a number of possible “scheme adjustments” or players in positions where note is needed. The more of these players Miami can grab, the better.
CB Elijah Molden, Washington
Molden is a gifted cornerback who, despite the feeling of redundancy in Miami’s depth map, can give a boost. Miami has been conscious with their handling of 1st round pick Noah Igbinoghene to keep him on the perimeter, where Molden as Molden has spent a lot of time in nickel. Offseason 2021 will be a good chance to explore upgrading this position to Miami, which is staffed by UDFA Nik Needham in 2019.
