Juice's Annual Offseason/Draft Blog
With the offseason starting in less than 2 weeks, its just about time to start thinking about what the Dolphins should do.
In free agency, I think the Dolphins should make going after ILB Carlos Dansby their #1 priority. Dansby fills a position of need and allows us to go after the BPA in the draft in April. If the Dolphins are unable to sign Dansby, Larry Foote who was released by the Lions had 3-4 ILB experience from his time in Pittsburgh. Foote is only 29 and would be a sloid 2nd option to Dansby. Gary Brackett, 29, from Indianapolis is another ILB option.
The next free agent the Dolphins should target is Antrel Rolle. Rolle wants to move closer to his family who live in South Florida. Signing Rolle means the Dolphins can cut ties with Gibril Wilson, who in my opinion was nowhere near worth his hefty salary.
If the Dolphins can sign Dansby or another ILB and Rolle, they can truly draft best player available instead of maybe reaching for need.
Now to the draft......
If Dez Bryant is available when the Dolphins pick, I think it is a no-brainer but I dont expect him to be there so,
1. Brandon Graham OLB/DE Michigan
2. Terrance Cody NT Alabama
3. Arrelious Benn WR Illinois
4. Ed Dickson TE Oregon
6. Myron Rolle SS FSU
6. Cameron Sheffield OLB Troy
6. Ted Larson OG NC State
7. CJ Wilson DE East Carolina
7. Jamar Wall CB Texas Tech
