On Tuesday, NFL.com's Albert Breer released his first mock draft of the offseason (of which I suppose there will be many) and had California wide receiver Keenan Allen going to the Dolphins with the No. 12 overall selection.
Today, ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper will conduct a conference call with media from around the country. On Sunday and Monday, NFL personnel people and coaches will begin their trek to Mobile, Alabama for the annual practices leading up to the Senior Bowl.
Yes, draft season has begun.
And I will be as excited as always to see what the every team does. This will be a seminal draft for the Dolphins as they have five picks in the first three rounds and those will determine the direction of the franchise for years to come. So this draft needs to be a home run for Miami.
This draft is only part of a strategy I believe the Dolphins must use. I continue to advocate and indeed demand that the Dolphins be major players in free agency, particularly as it applies to the wide receiver position.

If you want to know what to expect, then figure out "what would be the worst thing we could do" and that's probably what will happen.
Jennings and/or Wallace would be great signings. May push the WR need off to the second round but it would be hard to pass Kennan Allen or Patterson if they sit there at 12 and Milliner/Top DE on the board is off. I mean if Werner, Mingo were there, you have to take one of those guys to help Wake and be able to smash Tom Brady two times a year.
unfortunately, we all have to wait until 50 or so days before the frenzy begins
Armando is an entirely too negative an often unreasonable person who talks down to Dolphins fans like we watch different games than he does. Nevertheless, this is a no brainer. Everyone knows Miami has to get at least one high profile wide receiver in free agency. It just makes too much sense. I agree that adding both Jennings and Wallace would change the team overnight, but, at this point I'm only confident in the acquisition of Jennings.
