The first round of the 2017 NFL draft kicked off on Thursday, April 27th. After finishing the regular season with a successful 10-6 record, the Dolphins found themselves in the wild card game on the road.
The team showed great success at home with a 6-2 regular season record, but the away record of 4-4 was a scary prospect as they headed to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers, who boasted postseason veterans like Ben Roethslesberger and Antonio Brown on offense.
Needless to say, the Dolphins were routed by the Steelers offense. There were no answers on either side of the ball, and both Brown and Steelers RB Le’veon bell finished the game with 2 touchdowns each.
Fast forward to the night of the first round of the 2017 draft, and the big question was whether the Dolphins would choose to go offense or defense with their 22nd pick. Kiko Alonzo shared his thoughts on what would be the right decision.
