Hoo boy. Another wasted draft pick on an offensive lineman.

Sun Sentinel wrote:
The Dolphins waived/injured offensive lineman Isaac Asiata, a former fifth-round pick by the Dolphins in 2017. Asiata was expected to compete for a position at left guard, but has appeared in only two games while spending the majority of the last two seasons on the practice squad.

Asiata likely will reach an injury settlement with the team before pursuing another opportunity in the NFL.

I've been saying this for a few years, but the Dolphins need to hire a scout who has had success scouting offensive linemen.

Armando Salguero wrote:
And the frustrating thing about this pick is that Asiata was drafted out of Utah with the 164th selection. And with the 190th selection the Los Angeles Chargers selected Sam Tevi, who was on the same offensive line as Asiata at Utah.

And Tevi was a backup as a rookie. And last year he started 15 games and won the starting right tackle job for the Chargers ahead of Joe Barksdale, who opened the door for Tevi when he got injured and then was cut when he got healthy because Tevi won the job outright.

Somebody in the Dolphins’ personnel department studied the same Utah offensive line and picked the wrong guy.

I had high hopes for Asiata. I heard an interview with him on Sirius before he was drafted, and he came off as an extremely intelligent, high character guy. He just never developed with us. I fully expect someone else will pick him up and get more out of him than we did.

It's NOW official. After the 2017 draft Todd McShay said, "Isaac Asiata was also a good value for the Dolphins in the fifth round." NFL.COM said, "Don't be shocked if fifth-round G Isaac Asiata winds up playing the most as a rookie" Shrek: "What a load of *flush*.

The Phinsider wrote:
Isaac Asiata has been something of a disappointment for Miami Dolphins fans and coaches over the course of his short career, and now, the team is saying goodbye to him for good.

According to the NFL transactions page, the Dolphins released Asiata (undisclosed) from injured reserve with an injury settlement. The 26-year old guard suffered the injury sometime during the team’s offseason program and was initially waived in mid-May. After clearing waivers, Asiata reverted to Miami’s injured reserve, where he stayed until finally being officially released by the team on Friday.
