Tabor was a second-round pick in 2017, but he flamed out quickly and lasted just two seasons in Detroit. Tabor made one start as a rookie and four last year, but consistently struggled. He was quickly labeled a bust, and it was clear that Matt Patricia’s coaching staff wasn’t too high on him. The 53rd overall pick of the 2017 draft, Tabor was a first-team All-SEC selection in each of his last two years at Florida, but never lived up to his billing.
Because of his draft status, he’ll likely get another shot somewhere soon whether it’s with the Dolphins or someone else. Miami is in the midst of a full-blown rebuild and will likely be taking looks at as many young players as possible to try and find some gems for the future, so their interest makes sense. The Dolphins have Xavien Howard locked up longterm, but not too much behind him at corner.
