NFL Draft 2011: Mel Kiper Says Miami Dolphins Will Get Help from Mike Pouncey
NFL Draft 2011 and Mel Kiper Says Miami Dolphins Will Get Help from Mike Pouncey
The Miami Dolphins are in one of the toughest divisions in all the NFL in the AFC East.
That means they have to contend with teams like the Jets and Patriots two times a piece each year with Steelers and Ravens sprinkled in sometimes. It’s not easy.
While quarterback remains the biggest issue for the Dolphins, they addressed the offensive line issues and could be building a powerful line with Jake Long and Mike Pouncey.
Mel Kiper’s Analysis:
Miami went after needs and got some immediate help in key spots, including guard and running back, getting pretty even value overall. Pouncey should start and pay early dividends at guard, and while Thomas has seen his stock dip, he's a capable running back who could be the starter pretty early in his career. Getting him where the Dolphins did represents good value. Gates is a pretty intriguing player, one of the fastest players in the draft. Clay should stick as a physical fullback. Solid, unspectacular weekend for Miami.
I like what the Dolphins did during the draft and the idea of drafting the best player available at positions of need is the right way for teams to go.
