Really, not a bad look at some ideas for the Dolphins April's draft as I see a few good ones mentioned that could help out. I never really thought about T'eo for our number one pick as our first need, but the guy is a baller, so if he was to come in and start, perhaps not a bad thought.
Round 1: Manti T'eo, MLB, Notre Dame
Burnett left a lot of things to be desired this season and Dansby is getting older. Enter the all-american Lber. He has terrific instincts and great coverage skills. He should be ina foot race with Dansby every play to the ball carrier. Good ole Zach Thomas and Junior Seau style.
Round 2: Marcus Trufant, CB, Washington
We have no #1 CB, whether we re-sign Smith or not. To correct this, we need to take a CB early. Trufant fits that bill and will be a valuable piece to our secondary for years to come.
Round 2: Justin Pugh, LT, Syracuse
This prospect should be an instant plug in at LT. He should be able to start there immediately and keep Tannehill upright.
Round 3: Tony Jefferson, FS, Oklahoma
This concludes our race to fix our secondary starters. This safety is a good cover man that should excel in Coyle's system where the safeties can sit back and read the QB's eyes. He needs to fix his tackling technique, imo, but that can be fixed.
Round 3: Travis Kelce, TE, Cincinnati
The fast TE is an athletic beast that needs more refinement. He improved his run and pass blocking abilities his senior season, so he should be ready to go.
Round 4: Duke Williams, SS, Nevada
The safety from Nevada has the range to play either safety position, but he would do best at SS. He would provide excellent depth along with Jimmy Wilson. He is fast and a great tackler, meaning heshould do great on ST. He played a lot of 2 deep safety in college, so he will pick up the Coyle system quickly. With Landry's injury history, this would be a smart pick.
Round 5: Omoregie Uzzi, OG, Georgia Tech
Our OGs were not good at run blocking this season and let up too much pressure. In order to fix this problem, we need to draft OGs.
Round 7: Braden Hansen, OG, Brigham Young
Round 7: Caled Sturgis, K, Florida
The kicker has a strong leg and would compete with Dan Carpenter in camp. If he can't outright win the position battle, I would like to keep him anyways. We could use DC$ for kicks under 40 yards and the rookie for kicks over 45 yards and kickoffs. Kicks between 41 and 45 yards would be determined by conditions. Windy or wet conditions should go to the strong legged rookie, but good conditions should go to the accurate veteran.
