Insider Says 1 New Dolphins Draft Pick ‘Creates A Lot Of Chaos’

May 12, 2024

The Miami Dolphins Draft Table prior to the second and third rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft on April 27, 2018, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX.

The Miami Dolphins lost a lot of talent in free agency this offseason, namely Christian Wilkins and Robert Hunt who signed two of the three contracts worth over $100 million this offseason, as well as Andrew Van Ginkel, Brandon Jones, and Raekwon Davis.

It placed a lot of added emphasis on the draft, and one draft pick is already generating rave reviews.

NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah is a big fan of Dolphins’ first-round pick Chop Robinson out of Penn State, and said about the edge rusher that “He created a lot of chaos.”

Jeremiah highlighted Robinson being such a polished product and praised his ability to bend, his first-step explosiveness, and the subtle and sudden movements he uses to beat offensive linemen.

Robinson was the 21st overall pick and had 17.5 tackles for loss in his last two seasons at Penn State and 9.5 sacks.

He ran a 4.48 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine at 6’3″ and 254 pounds, an impressive number given his size that will fit in perfectly with a franchise that values speed over everything.

Robinson will be looked at as an immediate replacement for Van Ginkel on the edge while veteran stars Bradley Chubb and Jaelan Phillips both recover from major injuries.

Miami was up against the salary cap this offseason and lost some of it’s most important players on defense because of it, so it’s no surprise the Dolphins went with an edge rusher in the first round especially given Chubb and Phillips’ injuries.

The Dolphins should have an impressive group of pass rushers in 2024 and Robinson will have some great veterans to lean on in his transition to the league.
