2012 NFL Draft: Miami Dolphins Latest News, Rumors and Storylines

While history surely isn't written in stone yet, to say the 2012 NFL offseason was a failure for the Miami Dolphins is the popular narrative.

Miami managed to strike out on Peyton Manning, then either struck out on Matt Flynn or simply passed up on him (depending on who you ask, and that's just within the organization), then signed David Garrard to compete with Matt Moore as their starting quarterback.

Meanwhile Miami also traded Brandon Marshall to Chicago, and as if things couldn't be worse, Cameron Wake is in the midst of a holdout.

So far, even though they have found some bargains (Paul Soliai's contract sticks out as one), the Dolphins' 2012 offseason is graded as a failure. However, teams primarily build through the draft, and the 2012 NFL Draft is upon us.

This 2012 draft—Ireland's second draft post-Parcells and first of the Joe Philbin era—is the chance for Miami to not only turn around the narrative of 2012 being a failure, but also to further build a team that already has a decent foundation to start with. 

How will Miami accomplish both? Will Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill be the key? And if not Tannehill, who will the Dolphins look to? All questions to be answered come draft day. Here's a look at what the Dolphins could do as well as how they do it.
