Here's hoping for the new look dolphins offense.

DOMINATION & DEVASTATEION 72.:bling:
Analysis: The Dolphins started in a hole since they had already traded their second-round pick in the 2010 deal to get WR Brandon Marshall(notes) (a trade that is trending badly right now). But the Dolphins, a team in desperate need of team speed, then continued their trend of thinking offensive line almost to the exclusion of everything else. Mike Pouncey is certainly a good player and will be a terrific center or guard, but the Dolphins continue to pour resources into the line. After missing with the likes of Justin Smiley(notes) and Jake Grove(notes) in free agency, not to mention a handful of interior line draft picks, the Dolphins keep chasing their tail, neglecting speed at the skill positions. Thomas was a need (both Ronnie Brown(notes) and Ricky Williams(notes) are free agents), but he runs a 4.6 40 and required three draft picks for the team to get back into the second round. Fourth-round pick Gates can run, but he’s making a big jump in level of play.
49 X 4 + 207 X 3 + 73 X 2 + 24 X 1 + 13 X 0 = 196 + 621 + 146 + 24 + 0 = 987
987/366 = 2.70
I liked the players Miami selected, I just hate that the Dolphins passed on Mallett multiple times. That, IMO, is enough to knock the draft down to a D. Regardless of how Mallett turns out, if NE is able to trade Mallett 2-3 years from now for more than what they orginally spent on him, it's a win for them. This draft hinges on two players. Ryan Mallett & Daniel Thomas . . .
