Underfire GM Jeff Ireland Takes Charge of Miami's Draft

In a few days the waiting will all be over.

The NFL draft is just a day away, and as a result, it’s time for final predictions and mock drafts, while teams put out misinformation and smokescreens.

The Dolphins are one of the teams under the most intense media spotlight as they search for their new franchise quarterback, but there are other areas of need, too.

A pass-rusher who can play defensive end or outside linebacker is arguably their biggest need after the retirement of the great Jason Taylor, and it is even more of a need as Cam Wake enters the final year of his contract.

In addition, the new West Coast offense will require new, more athletic offensive linemen and new receivers after the trade of Brandon Marshall. Tight end could be considered an area to strengthen as well, with just Anthony Fasano a proven commodity at the position.

Further depth is required on the defensive line and in the secondary, while there might also be additions at linebacker.

The Dolphins have a full complement of draft picks and an additional pick in the third round courtesy of the Chicago Bears’ trade for Marshall. In the sixth round, Miami swapped picks with the New Orleans Saints in the Reggie Bush trade.

Who will Miami target? Who should Miami target? These are the questions every fan is asking.

These are my predictions for the Dolphins’ 2012 draft selections, followed by alternative options for each round and a few potential undrafted gems that should be targeted.
