A. . LB. Miami Dolphins. CHANNING TINDALL

Channing Tindall was the final Georgia football player drafted on Day 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft as the Dolphins used their first pick of the draft to select him at 102 overall.

He is a third-round deal for the Dolphins, but for them to draft him with their first pick says they were waiting on him, and if Tindall was there, then it was a no-brainer.

Since they chose him, the Dolphins get an A. Tindall had to share the load at linebacker for the best defense in college football. However, he did a lot with his limited reps, and when the Dawgs needed it most, Tindall led the team in tackles and made huge plays in that national championship game.

The Dolphins saw his potential, and Tindall connected with them throughout this process, so it’s a perfect match. He will be able to hit the ground running in south Florida and be a rookie that gets a lot of playing time. The Dawgs put linebackers into the league, and Tindall is the next in line.

Miami saw his potential and snagged him the second they could, so that tells us they liked his versatility, his high ceiling and that he was an instinctive linebacker.

Tindall will see the field early and find success as a rookie, and Miami will see him positively impact their defense.
