The Dolphins have more than a solid team to compete with next season. Their underrated defense is actually one of the best in football, but the Dolphins have lacked consistent quarterback play since Dan Marino.
Chad Henne has yet to improve and has struggled in big moments in big games. He has lost the trust of head coach Tony Sparano, who has only a couple seasons to lead the team to the playoffs.
The Dolphins have a great receiving core, especially with the addition of speedster Edmund Gates, who will be a great complement to Brandon Marshall.
With an above-average offensive line, the Dolphins could be major sleepers with Kevin Kolb at the helm next season.
The Dolphins did not address their quarterback need in the draft, so they may have a plan for either Kolb or a veteran free-agent quarterback.
