Dolphins select Olivier Vernon with the 72nd pick
Olivier Vernon, defensive end, Miami (6-4, 265)
There was a lot to like about Vernon on tape in 2010. However, because of injury and some motor concerns he wasn’t a real impressive player on the field in 2011. The skill set and talent is there for him to mature into a serviceable starter. However, I think this was a little high for him in round three.
