Miami Dolphins' general manager Dennis Hickey has been very active over the past month bringing in a number of players who are expected to make big impacts in 2014.
But as the attention shifts over to the NFL draft, the Dolphins still have a few important holes left that need to be filled.
Luckily for Miami, many scouts and draft gurus, including NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock, are calling this one of the best draft classes in years.
Last month, during a conference call with reporters, via Pro Football Talk, Mayock gave a rousing endorsement for the draft class.
From my perspective, this is the deepest and best draft class I've seen in probably ten years. That’s been reinforced by most of the general managers and scouts I’ve talked to throughout the league. I had one GM tell me the other day that having a Top-20 pick this year is very similar to having a Top-10 pick last year.
The Dolphins currently sit at No. 19 in the first round and have a single pick in each of the seven rounds.
There will be plenty of good players available for Miami in each round, so it's all about bringing in the right guys who can step in from Day 1 and make an impact.
Let's take a look at the best options for the Dolphins throughout the draft looking for players who can contribute right away.
