I have followed him for just a short time, since TedSlimjr raved about him he's tough, great cover and flips his hips quick. I think we'd have to have a top ten pick to get him and he will be a #1 CB. I don't get the Amerson love IMO he sucks! These are the corners in the top 15 and I think thats where we will draft.
Also Montgomery is the DE to target as well. He is a good athlete, not as much as Mingo, but he's got strength at poa and he has some nice moves. He is a strong pass rusher, plays the run and these are the 2 players Miami needs to be targeting IMHO at this point. These guys would really add to this tough defense.
iMO Milliner would give us a future shutdown corner and pairing with a developing SS24 we would have a much improved secondary that could develope into a strength. I am wary of Smith because all of a sudden the light is coming on and it happens to be in a contract year. But remember that Smith was a reciever in college so he has been developing since he was drafted. So he may just beginning to reach the potential we saw a few years ago.
If Miami takes a pass rusher I don't see it happening in the first round. They'll take the best avialable WR or trade down for more picks.
This is a deep class for pass rushers and one of the big name players will fall out of the first round. Depending on where the Dolphins pick, I think their top 3 choices for DE are Okafor, Lemonier and Carradine(who would be a great value pick after the mid 2nd round).

2. ILB: Chris Borland, Wisconsin
3. TE: C.J. Fiedorowicz, Iowa
4. DT: Daniel McCullers, Tenn
