Dolphins select S Jevon Holland with 36th Pick

The Dolphins shocked pretty much everyone with their first selection on day two taking Jevon Holland from Oregon. After opting out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 Holland seemed to have disappeared from the thinking of a lot of the top draft pundits.

Holland is a total ball hawk of a safety notching 9 interceptions in his two seasons as a Duck, along with 89 tackles. In coverage on 109 targets he allowed only 68 receptions and 4 touchdown passes. The ideal fit as the big nickel in Coach Flo’s fluid defensive schemes, Holland seems to be a perfect fit in Miami.

JEVON HOLLAND IS PERFECTLY SUITED TO THE BIG NICKEL

Draft Network had this to say about him, “Jevon Holland aligned at safety for the Ducks defense. He shows excellent versatility and football intelligence to align in multiple places in the secondary. He demonstrates good leadership and communication on the back end and easily adjusts with motion. He is an excellent athlete with loose hips, agility, and body control while in coverage. When aligned in the slot, he demonstrates the coverage upside to allow the coordinator the flexibility to make different calls.
