Sure, offensive tackle might be Miami's biggest need, but they can't afford to use another first-round draft pick on one. The Dolphins can find a starting-caliber tackle in the later rounds of the draft. They need to acquire a dynamic difference-maker with their eighth (or ninth) overall pick.
The 'Fins desperately need to add a pass rusher, and I think that is what they will do. Dominant pass rushes anchored playoff teams like the Texans, 49ers and Giants, and Jeff Ireland should try to replicate their blueprints.
Last week, I had the Dolphins selecting South Carolina's Melvin Ingram here, but after watching Quinton Coples shine at the Senior Bowl, I think he will be the pick (assuming he is still on the board). Concerns about Coples' maturity and consistency are abundant, but he has superstar potential and Todd McShay called him the "best player on the field" last week.
If Coples is taken before Miami picks, then expect the Dolphins to target either Melvin Ingram or Alabama safety Mark Barron.
