    The Dolphins had three first-round draft picks in 2020. One of them, Tua Tagovailoa, had his fifth-year option picked up. The other two will not.

    The Dolphins are not expected to exercise the fifth-year option on either offensive lineman Austin Jackson or cornerback Noah Igbinoghene, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

    That’s no surprise, as both Jackson and Igbinoghene have struggled to live up to expectations as first-round picks. The Dolphins say they expect Jackson to start at right tackle this season, but last year he played in just two games because of two different ankle injuries.

    Igbinoghene has been an even bigger disappointment than Jackson, starting just five games through three NFL seasons. Both Jackson and Igbinoghene are slated to become free agents in March of 2024.

    Noah could be gone by the end of preseason. Jackson I'm still holding out hope for.

    With the drafting of Cam Smith, if he shows the promise that's expected, Iggy's days in Miami are numbered.

    Jackson though on the other hand is safe for no other reason than the fact we have nothing for an offensive line.

    How I hope one of these rookies steps up and shows he is light years ahead of the curve.

    Not a big shock to anyone. I don't think Noah makes it thru camp. I expect Jackson on the roster this season simply because we can't replace him with what we have.

    Could Noah be better with the new scheme?

    Possibly, and he has training camp to prove it. He's also surrounded by some absolute studs though since that's probably the most talented positional room on the team.

    Rooting for him, just like any Dolphin....but his chances of making the final roster will solely depend on his growth the next several months. If things are going to click, it's now or never.

    That’s a GOOD question. We’ve all been disappointed with Igbeinoghone’s performance since he was drafted, but the defense last year was atrociously horrible last season. Was it Boyer’s scheme or is Iggy that bad? It is a legitimate question however…

    Even in light of the poor defensive scheme, Darth Kader Kohue did shine and showed why he earned his spot on the team as an undrafted free agent.

    I’m hopeful Fangio’s defense will bring out the best in Iggy but if it doesn’t, it’s time to cut sling load.

    Noah's had three seasons to show us something. I think he was drafted to be X's replacement. He would have been a bad pick in the 4th round, so he's nothing less than an embarrassing pick in the first.

    Eeh, I think he was drafted because his measurables and innate talent were off the charts. Some gambles pay off, some don't, and that's okay either way. I agree that he was a reach in the late 1st, but I do understand why we rolled the dice.

    He's not gone yet though, and he did win a game for us last season with the awesome pick in the end-zone. It's enough to get him a shot in camp anyway.

    Grier’s 2020 draft should be a fireable offense

    I just think we remain patient with Jackson for one more season. He was extremely young when he came into the league. I feel like O Lineman are like Quarterbacks. They have a long shelf life in the league. On top of that, offensive lineman mature and they end up getting their grown man strength at some point. They stick long enough and eventually they're going to be bigger and stronger than a lot of the younger guys in the league. That's the way I see it at least. Jackson is reaching vet status at this point and I just don't think we call it quits on him just yet. I expect a big year from him this season if he can stay healthy. He's playing to stay in the league at this point, contract year...Yeah he's going to deliver for us.

    I believe that is the draft that i read 20 first rounders did not have their 5th year option picked up.

    Yeah, possibly. The good news is that I think we have the right coaches in the building to make that decision.

    What measurables exactly? His combine and pro day numbers were nothing special, his productivity was nothing special, and he was inexperienced at the position as can be. Picking him in the first round is completely inexcusable, don't try to make ryhme or reason of it, it was just a stupid pick. I said the day we drafted him he would be our next Jamar Fletcher.

    I do like the Cam Smith pick though, he is a much more talented CB than Noah ever has been.
