Also check out Dave Hyde's column on the trifecta's approach to rebuilding this team (CLICK HERE). They are clearly starting at the base, which is special teams and depth, and building through the draft. Things change daily, but right now if I'm putting money on who will be pick No. 1 I'm going 1. Jake Long, 2. Vernon Gholston, and 3. Chris Long based on what we're hearing.
If the Dolphins address the holes on offensive line within the next month I think Long moves down the list. I just don't see them taking a gamble that someone they like and want will be available with the first pick in the second round, so Jake Long is the safety net.
