After falling to the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day, the Miami Dolphins' three-game win streak ended. Consequently, their playoff chances died as well. 

At 3-8, Miami's odds of making the postseason are astronomical, so it's safe to say they won't be making a playoff appearance. 

It's time, then, to start looking ahead toward the 2012 NFL Draft. 

The Dolphins will likely finish the season with a top 10 draft selection, leaving them in position to grab one of the elite quarterback prospects. But quarterback is only one of many needs the 'Fins must fill during the draft. Miami must address holes along the offensive line, as well as gaps in the secondary, linebacker corps, and tight end corps. 

However, it's nearly impossible to predict how Miami will draft. There is sure to be a new general manager and head coach in place by April, and their philosophies will differ from those of the Trifecta. 

Regardless, it's never too early to start talking about the NFL Draft, and here's a look at how the Dolphins' draft might unfold in April.
