So, this was the last draft that Flores did for Coach Gase. Losing Fitzpatrick really hurt the following year as he wanted to play safety rather than in the slot CB/S positions. And, to be fair, he struggled in Flores defense before the trade. Gesicki and Baker took big steps forward last year and will probably be resigned/extended.

The best thing you can say about this Dolphins draft class is that the team got back a first-rounder in return for Minkah Fitzpatrick. He’s been one of the best safeties in the league, but it's hard to say how much credit goes to Miami when he's not in a Dolphins uniform. Tight end Mike Gesicki and linebacker Jerome Baker have flashed at times, but that’s about all you can say for either.
