I would say that this draft probably saved Grier's job. He did a nice job and I'm expecting TE Hunter Long to look better this year.

Jaylen Waddle isn’t the highest-graded Dolphins rookie? Believe it or not, that is the case. That’s not to say Waddle wasn't in the mix, as he posted a 78.3 overall grade himself, but Holland has been just as impactful, if not even more, on the defensive side. The reason the Dolphins aren’t higher on this list with those two is the rest of the class hasn’t lived up to their expectations.
