I could be wrong, but like the Falcons, Miami will regret its draft choice. Jason Taylor was just traded to Washington (though Bill Parcells got a steal for him) and Joey Porter is one of the most overrated players in the NFL. It'll become very apparent that the Dolphins need to address the hybrid linebacker position. Luckily, they'll be able to land Michael Johnson at this spot.

Michael Crabtree is also an option, but the Dolphins need to address their defense


2. Miami Dolphins: James Laurinaitis, ILB, Ohio St

The Dolphins could go WR if Crabtree isn’t taken first overall like he is in this draft. However, Laurinaitis would have gone top 10 last year but if he does well this year I could see him going to the Dolphins. The Dolphins need playmakers and Lauriniatis and he is that precisely. So look for them to get a playmaker at the best. The Dolphins will be looking for someone to contribute right away and help them get out of the slump they are in.


1. Miami Dolphins – Tim Tebow, QB, Florida (underclassman)
2008 Projected Draft Pick: Chris Long, DE, Virginia

To make this happen, Tebow would have to to declare for the NFL Draft. But if he indeeds wins a 2nd Heisman it would be difficult not to. Critics may argue he plays in a non NFL style offense and won't be able to do at the next level. Trust me, Timmy Tebow is special. A few years back, I saw Tebow's sophomore high school football footage and back then he had a cannon for an arm. His arm strength gets overlooked because of his amazing ability with his feet. This pick also depends on how well John Beck does next year. But Florida Gator fans would love for Tebow to stay in Florida. Many Seminole fans would be happy too

3. Miami - LB Rey Maualuga: Rey is bigger and hits harder than Laurinaitis and for some reason when I think of Parcelles and ILB I think of the bigger more punishing Maualuga. I think Laurinaitis would fit extremely well here but watching some games in which OSU struggled he didn't do a great job shedding blockers and might not be ideally tooled to fit in a 3-4 ILB position. Alternate Pick - Michael Johnson.


4. Miami Dolphins — Al Woods, DT, LSU
At 6-foot-4 and 320 pounds, Woods is a physically imposing defensive tackle (http://sports.outsidethebeltway.com/2008/04/2009-nfl-mock-draft/#) with enough size and strength to anchor the middle of a 3-4 defense.
