At the beginning of February, ESPN's Todd McShay published his second mock draft. He believes the Dolphins will draft South Carolina defensive end-outside linebacker Melvin Ingram. McShay said:
Quarterback and right offensive tackle are bigger needs, but there is not an available player at either of those positions who's worth drafting here. Cameron Wake is Miami's only legitimate pass-rushing threat and he turns 30 next season, so Ingram makes sense. He can play tackle in a four-man front or end in a three-man front, giving the Dolphins the scheme versatility they want under new defensive coordinator Kevin Coye, and Ingram had a penchant for making big plays during his senior season.
I try not to listen to anything Mel Kiper and Todd McShay say (read this article, and you won't either), but I must admit, McShay is spot-on here. He clearly understands Miami's roster, and I couldn't agree more with this assertion: "Quarterback and right offensive tackle are bigger needs, but there is not an available player at either of those positions who's worth drafting here."
That's what so many other "draft experts" fail to realize. Also, as many of you know, I'm driving the Melvin Ingram bandwagon, so it's only natural that I support McShay's pick.
