Two sources tell Yahoo San Diego State TE Gavin Escobar is a "top draft target" of the Dolphins.
A towering 6-foot-6, 254 pounds, Escobar has drawn loose comparisons to Rob Gronkowski and Tony Gonzalez, but ran an underwhelming 4.84 40-yard dash at the Combine. He caught 122 passes in three years in the Mountain West. Whether it's Escobar or someone else, the Dolphins figure to draft another tight end after whiffing badly on Michael Egnew last year.

I prefer Chris Gragg, TE from Arkansas.

He had a solid 2011 season and was on fire in 2012 before he went down early with a leg injury. He is now healthy though. At the combine he posted a smoking 4.51 40 yard dash and was tops in broad jump and vertical jump. He is only 6'02, but his combine stats suggest he can win battles for the jump ball.

I'm not Escobar's biggest fan. He has nice hands, but he's honestly just a much less athletic, poorer blocking version of Eifert.

4.84 is very slow. Even Manti Te'o could stay with him. Where is he projected to go in the draft?

I hope we go after Smoochie Wallace.
