If the Miami Dolphins are to be a serious playoff contender, Miami's 2013 draft class must play a huge part.
Jeff Ireland, the Dolphins' general manager, practically married Ryan Tannehill when he made the Texas A&M quarterback the eighth overall selection of the 2012 draft. Tannehill's progression earned Ireland a contract extension, through at least the 2014 season, according to The Miami Herald.
Dion Jordan and the rest of the Dolphins' 2013 draft class will have to step up if Ireland is going to have a future in South Florida beyond 2014. So far, the group has produced very little outside of Caleb Sturgis and Jordan.
I will now assign two grades to all nine members of the 2013 class. One grade will be for performance to date, based on expectation, and the other for potential impact.
