Which prospects should Dolphins hope to coach at 2021 Senior Bowl? – Dolphins Wire

The news came through earlier this week that the Miami Dolphins would not only be in attendance at the 2021 Senior Bowl, but that their coaching staff will be on hand in full force to coach one of the two teams of NFL hopefuls. It’s a massive win for the Dolphins, who will reap the rewards of being so skewed towards building their franchise through the NFL Draft under general manager Chris Grier and head coach Brian Flores.

Who are the prospects to note for Flores and the Dolphins ahead of the event, which will be held at the end of the month in Mobile, Alabama?

Here are a number of possible “scheme fits” or players at positions of need of note. The more of these players Miami can get their hands on, the better.

CB Elijah Molden, Washington

Molden is a gifted cornerback who, despite the feel of redundancy in Miami’s depth chart, could provide a boost. Miami has been deliberate with their handling of 1st-round pick Noah Igbinoghene to keep him on the perimeter, where as Molden has spent a lot of time in the nickel. The 2021 offseason will be a great chance to explore upgrading that position for Miami, which has been manned by 2019 UDFA Nik Needham.
