Dolphins selected Clemson CB Cordrea Tankersley with the No. 97 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Tankersley (6’1/199) made 30 starts in the Tigers’ secondary, amassing 22 pass breakups with nine interceptions and earning first-team All-ACC as a senior. PFF College charted Tankersley with a 44.6% completion rate and just one touchdown pass allowed in 2016. Tankersley bombed his vertical (29 ½") at the Combine, but ran fast (4.40) and showed adequate change-of-direction skills with a 7.00 three-cone time. Tankersley’s drawbacks are his athletic question marks and penalty proneness after being flagged seven times as a senior. He is also slightly old for a rookie, turning 24 in November. Still a quality press-man prospect, Tankersley has an outside chance to develop into a quality No. 2 cornerback.

Dolphins selected Ohio State LB Raekwon McMillan with the No. 54 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

McMillan (6’2/240) arrived at OSU as a five-star recruit and did not disappoint, starting for 2-of-3 years and leading the Buckeyes in tackles in each of those two seasons. McMillan broke out for second-team All-America honors as 2016 junior, then turned pro. McMillan is an above-average athlete with 51st-percentile SPARQ results and 4.61 speed, but he showed coverage limitations against backs and tight ends and lacks ideal change-of-directions skills. Still, McMillan possesses NFL-caliber Mike ‘backer traits with fundamentally sound tackling and plus blitzing ability.

Dolphins selected Missouri DE Charles Harris with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

The Miami Herald identified Harris as one of the Dolphins' prime pre-draft targets. They badly needed a defensive end. Harris (6’3/253) turned pro after his redshirt junior year at Mizzou, finishing his career with 34.5 tackles for loss and 18 sacks, and earning second-team All-SEC from the conference’s coaches in 2016. On tape, Harris exhibited a sensational spin move and explosive get-off, but was often overpowered in run defense. Harris disappointingly tested as a ninth-percentile athlete at the Combine with 4.82 speed and a brutal 9-foot-1 broad jump. A film-versus-metrics conundrum, Harris is a favorite of devout film watchers. Ultimately, Harris is likely best suited for a situational pass-rusher role in the pros.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins would be happy with either Tennessee DE Derek Barnett or Missouri DE Charles Harris at No. 22 overall.

Reporter Armando Salguero insisted last month the Dolphins would target a defensive end. Both Barnett and Harris could be gone by the time the Dolphins are on the clock. Harris has a better chance of falling, but that's because there are questions about his ability to set the edge in run defense. Harris tallied nine sacks as a senior.

The Palm Beach Post's Joe Schad reports Dolphins C Mike Pouncey underwent a "stem cell procedure within the past few weeks."

The operation is reportedly to blame for Pouncey being spotted on crutches Monday, and he is expected to shed them in the near future. A league source told Schad the center remains "on track" and has not suffered any setbacks. That may be true, but Pouncey's ability to get and stay healthy remains in serious question. The Dolphins will likely limit him throughout the offseason program and perhaps even training camp.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip) remains on crutches.

Pouncey was spotted at Aaron Hernandez's funeral. Pouncey insisted in January he would be ready for the offseason program. The Miami Herald reports the target is Week 1. Pouncey's hip issues are severe, but have yet to throw his career into question. Pouncey was limited to five games last season, and hasn't appeared in all 16 since 2012.
Apr 24 - 3:19 PM

Julius Thomas said this is "probably the best I've ever felt."

He was present for the start of offseason conditioning and claims to be 100 percent coming off an injury-plagued 2016 season. Thomas also said he feels "at home" playing under coach Adam Gase, who coordinated Denver's offense when Thomas was there from 2013-14. The 28-year-old reeled in four touchdowns with Jacksonville last season, his fewest since his rookie year in 2011.
Apr 22 - 1:25 PM

The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson reports walk-year WR Jarvis Landry and the Dolphins "have not begun serious talks on an extension."

The Dolphins have told Landry they want to keep him, but they have not even indicated when they will begin to discuss a new deal. Despite the uncertainty, Landry showed up for the start of the offseason program this week and reportedly "has no intention of holding out." The receiver is set to earn just under $900,000 in the final year of his rookie deal.
Apr 20 - 10:13 AM

Contract-year WR Jarvis Landry reported for the start of voluntary workouts Monday.

Wanting an extension, Landry could have skipped the sessions in order to take a stand, but he's instead opting for the team-first approach. Set to earn just under $900K in the final year of his rookie contract, Landry and the Dolphins are expected to talk about an extension through the summer. He'll likely want more than the Rams gave Tavon Austin (4 years, $42M) last year.
Apr 17 - 10:46 AM

Dolphins re-signed S Michael Thomas to a one-year, $1.797 million contract.

Thomas drew interest from two undisclosed teams and even received a three-year offer from one of them. He'll play out the one-year deal and hit the open market in 2018. Thomas should get some snaps in three-safety sets while T.J. McDonald is suspended and continue to be an asset on special teams.
Apr 17 - 9:00 AM

According to ESPN's James Walker, "chances appear slim" that contract-year WR Jarvis Landry will reach a long-term deal with the Dolphins before voluntary workouts open on Monday.

Assuming that's the case, Landry could skip workouts next week to send the Dolphins a message, though coach Adam Gase expects him to attend. "He's a football player who loves being in part of our program," said Gase. "He'll be there. Trust me." After this week, the Dolphins will reconvene for on-field workouts May 23-25 before mandatory minicamp starts on June 13. Landry is due $893,852 in the final year of his rookie contract.

Dolphins restricted free agent RB Damien Williams visited the Patriots.

Bills restricted free agent RB Mike Gillislee was also there. Both were given original-round tenders by their respective teams, but Williams would not cost the Patriots any compensation as a former undrafted free agent. Gillislee would cost a fifth-round pick. Of course, Gillislee is a better player and a better fit for the early-down back the Patriots need. April 21 is the deadline to sign RFAs to an offer sheet.
Apr 13 - 8:32 AM

The Dolphins' Oct. 1 London game against the Saints will kick off at 9:30AM ET.

The NFL was supposedly done with its early kickoffs across the pond, but apparently there's still more royalists to be won over to the American version of football. Prepare to be inconvenienced when setting your fantasy lineups.
Apr 10 - 4:09 PM

Dolphins signed QB David Fales, formerly of the Bears.

Fales was a 2014 sixth-rounder and spent 2015 with then-Bears OC and now-Dolphins coach Adam Gase. Fales was an exclusive rights free agent but wasn't tendered an offer by Chicago. He'll compete for the No. 3 job.
Apr 5 - 2:42 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase thinks Julius Thomas will "make a little bit of a difference."

Miami tight ends recorded just 55 catches combined last season, and Gase said the lack of a real threat at tight end allowed teams to play their base defense even when the Dolphins went three wide. If Gase can get Thomas back to the level he was when they were together with the Broncos, that should not be an issue moving forward. Thomas caught 24 touchdowns in 27 games with Gase as the offensive coordinator in Denver.
