I remember that draft when the Dolphins took Taylor. I remember everyone at the time being so surprised that he fell to the 3rd round, and that Jimmy Johnson was some genius for taking him there. I also remember wishing that our organization was so smart, but we were too smart, taking Troy Davis instead, and Jared Tomich (SMDH). Say what you will about our 2014 and our other failed drafts, but that 1997 draft was so sad.
But the Dolphins cleaned up Sam Madison, Taylor, Derrick Rodgers, Brent Smith, Ed Perry. All had career of over 5 years with the Fins.
