Potential Draft Targets:
Round 1:WR Dez Bryant, NT Dan Williams, RB CJ Spiller, OLB Brandon Graham, S Earl Thomas
Round 2: WR Golden Tate, WR Damian Williams, NT Cam Thomas, S Nate Allen, OLB Ricky Sapp, OLB Koa Misi
Round 3: WR Eric Decker, WR Jordan Shipley, WR Dezmon Briscoe, NT Torell Troup, S Major Wright, S Morgan Burnett, OLB Eric Norwood, OLB Thaddeus Gibson
Plan of Attack: The Dolphins will have a tough decision to make at pick 12 if Dez Bryant is still on the clock. He has all the talent to be a true no. 1 receiver but there are questions surrounding his maturity level. Bryant is exactly what they are looking for and the Dolphins should pull the trigger on him. If they are scared away from his visit then they may look at adding NT Dan Williams to anchor their 3-4 for the next 5-10 years.
In round 2 the Dolphins can look at adding a playmaking safety to their secondary. South Floridaís Nate Allen would be a good fit and could still be available. Allen has good size, is a fluid athlete who can cover receivers and can also hit with authority. If the Dolphins donít get their nose tackle in round 1, they could look at UNCís Cam Thomas in the second. He is a big olí boy who can clog up running lanes and allow the Phins linebackers to roam free.
In round 3 the Dolphins should find value at outside linebacker. They have a big need their with Joey Porter moving on and Jason Taylor inching closer to retirement. Some guys who could be available would be South Carolinaís Eric Norwood, Ohio St.ís Thaddeus Gibson, and Viriginia Techís Jason Worilds, and anyone of them would look real good in teal and orange.
