I would be happy with either CB or pass-rusher in the first, we need both. good WR's can always be found in the 2nd, especially this year
Dolphins biggest need is offense. someone to score some points. I would go WR and TE with 2 of the first 3 picks.
Double up on WR's in the second. Plenty of talent at the WR position, although the drop off after the top 10 WR's is huge.
I'd be looking at either top DE, CB, or S.
If we are going the OT/G route I'd hope we can trade back to a late first and pick up a extra 3rd.
"What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."
Anyone draft just for need is always going to be a year behind. Its this sort of retroactive thinking that has directly lead to us losing.

Many feel that our draft picks are justified because we have a glaring hole on the roster. This has been the “logic” used when selecting centers and right tackles in the top two rounds. Like many emotional reactions to devastating news, this notion has flaws.
When Martin Mayhew drafted Ryan Broyles in the second round, many reporters and fans questioned the pick. After all, they had a glaring hole at cornerback and they had talented receivers. His response was merely pointing out that the team was strong at the wideout position today but it won’t be in the future. Nate Burleson is 31 years old and will surely start slowing down soon. In later interviews he and Jim Shwartz pointed out that talent rules their board and they grab what falls regardless of the position. One such interview is linked below. Bottom line is: The Lions successfully filled a hole before it was created.
If another example is needed look no further than the 2011 draft. Going into the draft the Dallas Cowboys desperately needed offensive lineman. They were bleeding at that position and made it clear to everyone they would be addressing it. So, with the 9th overall pick, they selected Tyron Smith. Two picks later the Houston Texans drafted the most talented player on their board: J.J. Watt. Smith has become a pretty good tackle. Watt has become one of the best players in the league. And a year later the Cowboys are now noticing they need defensive ends.
Draft for talent. A overall talented roster can overcome short term needs. I wont even get into how much more often great corners and wideouts hit free agency compared to great pass rushers.
