Earlier this week, Pro Football Network’s Tony Pauline received a simple question during his weekly email. But the answer he responded to (if it came to fruition) would shake up the landscape of the 2021 NFL Draft. More importantly, it would add another goal for Tua Tagovailoa and open up another dimension to the Miami Dolphins offense.
Here’s the question, along with Pauline’s answer.
Q: Any rumors from the NFL that the Dolphins could actually draft Penei Sewell at No. 3 despite having received two offensive tackles in the top 40 last year?
A: No yes Ja’Marr Chase is available to them.
For some, this will come as no surprise. After all, before opting out, Ja’Marr Chase was well regarded as the best wide receiver in the draft class. He was coming off a season in which he had 84 receptions for 1,780 yards and 20 touchdowns. Chase was unstoppable.
But then he opted out and DeVonta Smith had the best season EVER in the history of college football. People would soon forget how Chase changed the game what’s more was. So where do the Dolphins go from here?
In all honesty, you can probably flip a coin between DeVonta Smith or Ja’Marr Chase, at least if you’re the Miami Dolphins. But the biggest bomb of this report isn’t that Chase is the wide receiver they and many other teams potentially covet the most.
No, the biggest bomb of all this is that Chase would be the target, regardless of whether Penei Sewell of Oregon was available.
Of course, this could all be smoke and mirrors. But as we’ve learned in the past, while the rest of the industry plays checkers, the guys at Pro Football Network play chess.
Should the Dolphins select Ja’Marr Chase at # 3?
