The sub-par performance by the Miami Dolphins this season, it leaves a lot of questions in hand. Once considered the most exciting offense in the NFL, Miami now finds themselves at the bottom of the bottom in offensive production. With all the uncertainties and questions revolving the offense, there is no question, things need to change. It's pretty obvious the main focus of the draft will be on improving Miami's struggling offense.
With the likely departure of Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown, running back is an area that must be addressed early in the draft. If Miami does not trade down and keeps their #15 selection, look for the Dolphins to take the best available runner and Heisman trophy winner Mark Ingram. ---who's father, Mark Ingram, Sr. was once a wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins.
All last season Miami was missing the blazing deep threat guy with hands. The guy that would open up things for Brandon Marshall and Davone Bess. The guy defenses were scared of and knew could go deep at any moment.
(Not Ted Ginn, we're talking about someone who can catch the ball)
This is where Niles Paul would be an excellent fit for the Dolphins. You can bet Miami won't let any speedy talent get past them early in the draft.
Another speedy deep threat prospect Miami will take a look at.
Although Hudson is a smaller frame, his technique and toughness is what has made this Nole one of the best offensive lineman in the country. Would be a great fit for Miami.
Miami is in need of an athletic, play making tight end to compliment hard nosed guy Anthony Fasano. Look for Miami to give Rob Housler serious consideration in the 3rd round. I mean, he is right out of their backyard.
This Dallas Clark-like mold of a player could be just the spark Miami's offense has been missing.
There is no question Miami will aim to strengthen quarterback protection. Look for Miami to take a shot on someone like Boling in the 4th round.
High velocity thrower... Above average accuracy and arm strength, throws are often between the numbers. Throws well while scrambling. Has been productive as a four year starter. Good footwork. On the field leader, a good field general. Teammates feed off his energy. A winner. Could develop into a solid NFL starter. Dalton will be on the Dolphins radar in the 4th and 5th rounds.
Yates could be the biggest sleeper QB in the entire draft. Yates is a true student of the game. And although he struggled throughout his time at North Carolina, but his the tools to be a solid contributor to an NFL team given the right opportunity.
Look for Miami to draft a offensive/special teams utility guy, so to speak, in the late rounds.
Running Back/ Returner
Miami has a thing for Buckeyes and I could see Saine falling to Miami in late rounds to battle for a roster spot in training camp.
Hey, maybe this guy has the magic touch? that or he was "Lucky" in his time at Stanford. Beeler would be a nice pick up for Miami considering their Center crises throughout last season.
