2011 NFL Draft: 5 Possible Draft-Day Head Scratchers By Miami
Jeff Ireland is under intense scrutiny as the NFL Draft looms around the corner

Let's be real.

The last decade of drafting for the Miami Dolphins has been a bigger dud than Charlie Sheen's first stand up comedy gig.

Sure there have been some bright spots like Jake Long (that was a hard pick to mess up) and Vontae Davis but more often than not fans and experts alike have been scratching their heads and asking why?

Miami has passed on Drew Brees for Jamar Fletcher, traded away a second-round pick for A.J Feeley, and more recently dropped the ball on early round picks such as Tedd Ginn Jr, Pat White, John Beck, Lorenzo Booker, Derek Hagan and Patrick Turner.

While the drafting as of late has been better, the jury is still out on many of the selections in the early parts of the draft such as Kendall Langford, Phillip Merling, John Jerry and Chad Henne.

Even last year's first round pick of Jared Odrick was a shocker to most since Miami's front line seemed fine especially with the great play of Randy Starks and Cameron Wake late in the 2009 season.

So here is a look into a few possible trades, picks and decisions that Jeff Ireland and company could make that will leave you wondering "what the heck just happened".
