Jeff Ireland entered the offseason with his metaphorical seat practically on fire. He responded by putting together an impressive free-agent cast and arguably his best draft in his short stint as Miami's general manager.

Only a handful will make the team, and most who do will likely be relegated to practice squad duties or special teams work.
