Bill Parcells has always managed to bring in a solid edge rusher to sure up his 3-4 defense. If Cushing, Brown and Maybin are gone however he may be looking to sure up the secondary.

Brian Cushing simply looks like a Bill Parcells player. He's an athletic, but physical, outside linebacker that would be an ideal fit at outside linebacker in the Dolphins 3-4 system. He has the potential to play the role filled by DeMarcus Ware in Dallas. Cornerback is also a need, but it isn't a position Parcells usually targets in the first round.

The Dolphins could use a solid OLB, but instead of stretching to take one here the Dolphins could land an amazing talent in Harvin. Harvin has great speed, to be sure, but what makes him really stand out is his uncanny knack for not only running great routes but also in getting open. While I could see the Dolphins trading down here in Bill Parcells expert draft style, if Miami has the chance to draft Harvin here that could be a great move for a team that already has an emerging star with Ted Ginn, Jr.

The Phins current starters at corner would be backups on any other team in the league. Even the Lions.
44. DOLPHINS (FROM SKINS) - Louis Delmas S, Western Michigan - The Dolphins Safeties aren't much better than their corners. Delmas covers a lot of ground with a lot of energy.
56. DOLPHINS - Ramses Barden WR, Cal Poly - The Phins go with the big boy and hope he can blossom into the no. 1 receiver they need so badly.

Cushing solidified his first round abilities at the Senior Bowl and would be a good fit in a 3-4 scheme. He played DE as a sophomore at USC because they wanted to get him on the field so bad. He could probably play all four LB spots in their defense.

Bill Parcells wants to build a nasty, mean defense. Johnson's relentlessness makes him a first-rate pass rusher with a hunger to get to the quarterback.

We think that teams are underestimating Mooreís speed and feel that Moore could replace Renaldo Hill if necessary. The Dolphins are pleased with Jason Allen but need another playmaker alongside him. Moore is tough and has a nose for the ball carrier. He will make more than his share of plays in this defense and is a Bill Parcells kind of player.

No matter where he goes Bill Parcells wins and the way he has turned this Dolphins franchise around so quickly might be one of his crowning achievements. There is still work to be done though and Miami has plenty of needs they could address with this pick. When doing mock drafts itís important to look Brian Cushing | Southern Cal Trojans at history and trends and Parcells has used first round picks on impact linebackers everywhere he has been. Whether it was Carl Banks with the Giants, Willie McGinest in New England, James Farrior with the Jets or DeMarcus Ware with the Cowboys. That is what we call a tendency. Brian Cushing has battled the injury bug for most of his career but when he is healthy the results have been impressive. A bit of a linebacker / defensive end hybrid, Cushing would be a perfect fit in the Dolphins 3-4 defensive scheme and he could play outside or inside for them. In fact, in many ways he is similar to Bobby Carpenter, who Parcells liked enough to use a mid-first round pick on during his time with Dallas. The Dolphins could also use a top cornerback and outside of Ted Ginn they really donít have anything to get excited about at wide receiver either. Keep a close eye on B.J. Raji too because he would be an ideal fit as their long-term successor to the aging and undersized Jason Ferguson at nose tackle.

3-4 OLB/DE who falls because most the teams that run that D are in the later part of the first round. Has one thing that BP likes and that's a non stop motor who's gonna chase the QB all day.

Joey Porter proved he could still rush the passer once he was moved to the weak side, but he is not getting any younger, and the Dolphins could use another spark on the other side where Matt Roth was OK. Matthews has the size, toughness, athletic ability and bloodlines to command strong attention from Fins grand poobah Bill Parcells.

Right now, it just makes the most sense to guess that the Dolphins will address their need at outside linebacker and take Sintim - a player who has spent his college career as an OLB in a 3-4 at Virginia. The Dolphins could also go with either USC linebacker - Brian Cushing or Clay Matthews. But Cushing doesn't have great speed and also has some durability concerns. Meanwhile, Matthews is raw and may have more upside at OLB. But it would take some amazing workouts for Matthews to move up into the first round.
The Dolphins could also look at USC DT Fili Moala. He weighed in at 303 pounds at the Senior Bowl - and could still add some weight and be a solid NT in a 3-4. But he'll need his stock to rise some more. It's unlikely he'll be at the very top of Miami's draft board when they are on the clock - barring, of course, some outstanding workouts at the Combine.

I love Harvin's speed but why get another Ted Ginn, Jr.? If we are going to grab a WR lets get one over 6 feet tall with good hands.
