With the No. 36 overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins selected Oregon defensive back Jevon Holland.
While his position on paper is safety, he is more than just that. He's a bonafide playmaker who largely played nickel at Oregon as a sophomore and was graded as the best nickel cornerback in the country by PFF his sophomore season.
Ben Fennell of The Draft Network gushed about his willingness/ability to help in run support out of nickel formations and said Holland is his company's consensus No. 1 safety in the draft.
Holland was set to enter the 2020 college football season as a fringe first-round NFL Draft pick before opting out to prepare for his professional career.
In two seasons as an Oregon starter, Holland amassed nine interceptions (one pick-six) to go with 108 tackles (71 solo), and 10 passes defended. As a sophomore, he was a PFF All-Pac-12 first-team selection.
He was the first Oregon player to lead the team in INTs two consecutive years since Jairus Byrd (2006 & 2007).
