One look at the Miami Dolphins 2012 roster makes it very clear that they will have to hit big in the draft on players ready to contribute to the roster from day one. 

Whether it's at wide receiver, offensive line, defensive line or the secondary, an upgrade in talent is needed for the Dolphins to improve upon their 7-9 record from 2012.

But can such help be found in the draft?

Of course. The NFL draft manages to produce players ready for the big show every year. However, for every Jonathan Martin and Ryan Tannehill that can start from Week 1 through the rest of the season, there a couple Michael Egnews, who won't make an appearance until late in the season, in Egnew's case Week 15 and, even then, only due to injury.

That is unacceptable, especially from a third-round draft pick acquired in exchange for a receiver who would go on to have one of his best seasons. With five draft picks in the top-100 of the 2013 draft, Miami has to find guys ready to play right away.
