Before you freak out, let me explain.
After months of discussing the same four quarterbacks (Tannehill, Weeden, Osweiler, Cousins), I've concluded that the Dolphins won't draft any of them. All four have major downside, and unless Miami can trade down and Tannehill or Weeden fall into the second round, I think the Fins will wait until next year to find their franchise quarterback.
The fanbase might quite literally revolt, but that won't affect Jeff Ireland. Why reach for a quarterback if the right one isn't there?
Instead, I think the Dolphins should wait until the fifth round and draft Russell Wilson. He has everything you want in a quarterback except ideal height.
Will he become the next Drew Brees? Probably not.
But Wilson could become the next Jeff Garcia or Doug Flutie—a quarterback who can win games when needed but never evolves into a franchise quarterback.
The Dolphins must add a quarterback to install behind David Garrard and Matt Moore, and Wilson makes the most sense. There won't be pressure to rush him into a starting job, so Wilson will have ample time to learn and transition.
He has the make up of a Grade-A backup, and who knows? Maybe he will become the next Drew Brees.
