Cowboys select CB Eric Scott with Dolphins’ traded pick No. 178

The Miami Dolphins entered this weekend with only four total draft picks for the 2023 selection meeting, due to picks being forfeited and a number of trades.

One of those selections, pick No. 178, was originally received from the Chicago Bears in the Jakeem Grant trade. However, it was sent to the Kansas City Chiefs last offseason as part of the package for wide receiver Tyreek Hill. Hill immediately signed a new contract with Miami after the trade and went on to have an All-Pro year, setting career-highs in receptions (119) and yards (1,710).

The Chiefs then traded that pick on draft day to the Dallas Cowboys. With that sixth-round pick, Dallas selected Southern Mississippi cornerback Eric Scott.

Any player available this late is likely not as valuable as Hill has been or will be throughout the length of this contract.
