11. Minkah Fitzpatrick, DB, Alabama (Miami Dolphins)
Even with the questions at quarterback, the Miami Dolphins entered the 2018 NFL Draft looking to upgrade several spots on the defense. While many thought they’d go in the direction of an outside linebacker or defensive lineman, they selected the versatile Minkah Fitzpatrick from the University of Alabama, whom they saw as a chess piece that could play safety or outside cornerback or slot cornerback.
Of course, as we all know, with the new regime that arrived in Miami after the 2018 season, the Dolphins traded away Fitzpatrick after just one year to the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he’s emerged as one of the premier playmakers in the NFL.
