19. Miami Dolphins- Leonard Floyd, OLB/DE, Georgia

The Miami Dolphins are counting on their defensive line being a major force this season. However, the future of the group is a bit of a question mark with Cameron Wake getting older and Olivier Vernon approaching free agency.

With Ndamukong Suh already taking up a large portion of the salary cap, Miami may be forced to let Vernon walk this offseason. This would make adding a pass-rusher one of the team’s top priorities.

Leonard Floyd is a long and explosive edge rusher who flashes natural pass-rush skills. However, he might scare the Dolphins a little because he bears a close resemblance to Dion Jordon.
