When Drew Lock walked into a suite at the Senior Bowl to meet with the Dolphins and was greeted by Dan Marino among a few other former Dolphin greats, via Joe Schad of the Palm Beach post. “I was shaking everybody’s hand, and then was like, ‘Who’s that? Oh my god, that’s Dan Marino,’” Lock told Miami reporters on Monday. “When I’m sitting in the chair, he’s back here [behind me] when I’m answering questions. You feel it. You really feel a presence in the room.”
When asked about the notion of being drafted by the Dolphins Lock said, “I think that would be great, with Tannehill there, however they would like to play that out. Whether they’d bring me there, have me learn a little bit behind him or see how OTAs go and all the minicamps go. I think it would be an awesome spot, as would pretty much any NFL team be an awesome spot. But Miami would be really nice,” he added “I asked them how easy it is to get acclimated to Miami. They said ‘It depends on the person. Are you going to be OK getting acclimated?’ I was like, ’Yeah, I’ll be fine.’”
The Dolphins currently hold the 13th overall pick, Dan Marino's jersey number.
