MIAMI GARDENS — With a loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium, the Miami Dolphins secured a 6-10 finish and the 11th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

The 49ers and Raiders also finished 6-10, but they will pick ahead of Miami because they had weaker schedules, which is the tie-breaker.

The Dolphins haven’t drafted this high since 2013, when they selected Dion Jordan, a defensive end from Oregon, third overall. The year before, they selected quarterback Ryan Tannehill from Texas A&M with the eighth pick.

According to ESPN’s current draft rankings, offensive tackle Connor Williams of Texas is the 11th best player. It’s certainly not outside the realm of possibility that the Dolphins could use the pick on an offensive tackle.

Other players in that range include: defensive end Christian Wilkins of Clemson, cornerback Denzel Ward of Ohio State, running back Derrius Guice of LSU, wide receiver Calvin Ridley of Alabama, offensive tackle Mike McGlinchy of Notre Dame and quarterback Josh Allen of Wyoming.
