These Alabama football players have value for Miami.

The Miami Dolphins have prioritized taking Alabama football players in the past few years. They’ve taken a Tide alum in the first round in both 2020 and 2021. They’ve also added players like Raekwon Davis in recent years, so they’ve added plenty of Tide stars.

With plenty of draft picks in the 2022 NFL Draft, the Dolphins could add more Alabama football players. They certainly have weaknesses on the roster, but they should be able to find ways to get better with the draft and free agency.

So, which Tide stars should the Dolphins consider drafting? These three players make sense schematically, but they also should be available when the Dolphins will draft. Miami would love to add Evan Neal, but that is more than a fever dream. These players make more sense.

Christian Harris, LB

The Dolphins value speed on defense, and Harris proved his athleticism at the NFL Combine. He also fits a need as an off-ball linebacker. He’d add coverage skills, but he could also blitz the quarterback.

Harris should be available in the second round. If he slips, the Dolphins should consider adding him with their second-round pick.

John Metchie, WR

The Dolphins added an Alabama football receiver, and it worked out for them. Metchie would work well across from Waddle, and he should be available in the second round. Metchie is not a perfect receiver, but he should be a pivotal piece in a receiver group.

Brian Robinson

The Dolphins need to add some running back. Robinson isn’t the best fit, but he adds value as a power back on Day 3. Mike McDaniel should be able to improve Miami’s run game, but adding a back is still important. They won’t want to draft a back too early, so they could look in the later rounds to add depth at the position.
