Miami Dolphins: 2010 NFL Draft Top 5 Needs

The Dolphins' inability to become a consistent playoff contender can still be pinned on the bad drafts that occurred before Bill Parcells arrived. It looks like Parcells, along with general manager Jeff Ireland and coach Tony Sporano, still have the knack for getting the most out of young talent. Last season, for instance, the Dolphins were relying heavily on second year players (Chad Henne, Jake Long and undrafted free agent Davone Bess), as well as a few rookies (Vontae Davis, Sean Smith and Brian Hartline). That's good news, but it doesn't mean the Dolphins are out of the woods yet. Miami needs to do a better job finding big-time playmakers before this team is going to thrive. They hit on Davis, Smith and Hartline in 2009 but had some big whiffs too like Pat White, Patrick Turner and JohnTrading for Brandon Marshall is a great first step as well as the signing of Karlos Dansby. The Dolphins will draft this year at 12, 73, 110, 173, 174, 179, 212, 219 and 252.
