The Miami Dolphins still have devoted only one first-round draft pick to the quarterback spot since 1984.

But they may add one Friday.

The top four QBs in the draft were gone by the time the Dolphins' turn came with the No. 11 choice Thursday Kyle Rudolph Jersey , so they selected All-America safety Minkah Fitzpatrick of Alabama.

The Dolphins have the Nos. 42 and 73 overall picks in the second and third rounds, and they still have plenty of needs. Along with a quarterback to back up and perhaps eventually succeed Ryan Tannehill, they need starters at outside linebacker and tight end.

Washington State quarterback Luke Falk might be one option.

Fitzpatrick had a school-record four interception returns for touchdowns at Alabama and gives the Dolphins a playmaker in the secondary, where he'll be paired with Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers believe they accomplished their major goals of upgrading the defensive line and a porous secondary through the draft after going 5-11 and missing the playoffs for the 10th consecutive season.

The Buccaneers added more defensive pieces Saturday, taking Pitt safety Jordan Whitehead in the fourth round and Wisconsin linebacker Jack Cichy during the sixth.

”Thirty-one teams passed up (taking me) so I’ve got a chip on my shoulder coming in already Chase Allen Jersey ,” Whitehead said.

Cichy didn’t play in 2017 because of a knee injury that occurred in preseason camp.

”I feel great,” he said. ”I’m real close to 100 percent. I think by the time I get down there for minicamp and OTAs I’ll be 100 percent.”

Tampa Bay used its first-round pick Thursday to take Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea 12th overall. He will be plugged into a revamped defensive line anchored by six-time Pro Bowl tackle Gerald McCoy and bolstered by last month’s trade for pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul and the signing of Beau Allen, Vinny Curry and Mitch Unrein in free agency.

Tampa Bay ranked last in the NFL with 23 sacks a year ago.

The Buccaneers used a pair of second-round selections Friday to take cornerbacks M.J. Stewart from North Carolina and Auburn’s Carlton Davis.

”We feel great,” Tampa Bay general manager Jason Licht said. ”There’s more of a better vibe, not that it was ever bad Andre Tippett Jersey , more high-fives and more positive energy with all the coaches and scouts this year than I can remember.”

LEARNING CURVE

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter knows that 6-foot-6, 304-pound guard Alex Cappa, taken in the third round from Division II Humboldt State, will be facing a major step-up in competition. ”That’s a different level of football,” Koetter said. ”Right when his season was over Gareon Conley Jersey , he goes down to Phoenix and works out at an O-line place with a bunch of NFL guys. He’s the right kind of guy but there’s definitely a transition.”

Tampa Bay has had previous drafting success with small-school offensive lineman, taking starting guard Ali Marpet from Division III Hobart College in the second round of the 2015 draft.

FAMILY AFFAIR

Former Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis is Whitehead’s cousin.

”He gave me a lot of advice going through this process,” Whitehead said. ”Stay humble, anything can happen throughout this weekend.”

FASTER THAN YOU MIGHT THINK

Second-round selection Ronald Jones II from USC is an explosive runner who the Buccaneers feel is faster than generally known.

”He’s got track times, the ran guy 10.3-something 100-meters and multiple 10.5’s Vontae Davis Jersey ,” Koetter said. ”He runs hard. He’s going to bring something.”

HIGH GRADES

The Buccaneers took Penn wide receiver Justin Watson in the fifth round. He will graduate after taking his last final Wednesday at Penn’s Wharton School.

”I didn’t have a lot of I-A offers, in fact the only two offers I had at the I-A level were Buffalo and Akron out of the MAC,” Watson said. ”For me, Penn was just the best fit for both football and academics.”

STILL NEED

Tampa Bay could look to add depth at safety and the offensive line before the start of training camp.
