Hell no! Dolphins have too many picks as it is.

He hasn't cracked 20 yards and is averaging 3 yards a carry. So what are they wanting? I might give a conditional 7th for him. Bring him in and check him out.

Then there's this: 

Brian Flores and his coaching staff don’t trust Drake.

And this isn’t new because Adam Gase, Flores’ processor as Miami’s head coach, didn’t trust him either.

Despite the undeniable talent Drake has showcased since his days as Derrick Henry’s backup at the University of Alabama, it’s a challenge to find a coaching staff that has trusted Miami’s 2016 third-round pick because of his free-styling approach.

The main complaint about Drake, who multiple reports say was being discussed in trades talks this past week, is that he deviates from the script too often and freestyles too much.

Sorry Kevin I left out the most import line in the article because it was after a photo.

The controlling nature that fuels NFL coaches frowns on that unless your name is Barry Sanders.

Didn't the Dolphins very much deny they were trading him not to long ago? Physical talent wise, I think he's a great fit for this offensive scheme... but as others have pointed out, he doesn't always follow the coaches script and therefore doesn't always get the most out of that those talents that he could.

But I don't think I'd be willing to trade much for a guy in the last year of his contact unless both sides are ready and willing to extend the contract before the trade... Like I heard the Bears/Mack trade was based off the condition they agreed to a long-term contract extension.

I really don’t know anything about the guy, so it’s hard for me to have an opinion.
I’d like to see Dexter Williams out there to see what he can do. He was good in the preseason.

My question is, why are we interested? We have two good backs & a promising young rookie.

This is a good question. And then four years later we get him. 🤷
