Good break down of our D including the new free agents. Also an interview with Odrick talking lossing weight and the new logo.
CB: Starters - Richard Marshall, Brent Grimes Dimitri Patterson. Backups - Nolan Carroll, R.J. Stanford, Julian Posey, De’Andre Presley
Breakdown: The Dolphins have decent depth at cornerback with the addition of Grimes, and some intriguing projects in Stanford, Posey and Presley to work with. But the position lacks a cornerback who can cover the Brandon Marshall, Calvin Johnson types of the league. Carroll, the tallest member of this unit, has struggled in his two-years as a fill-in starter. Marshall and Patterson are both more suited to play the nickel spot than on the boundary. The Dolphins need to have three reliable cornerback, and the unit must get younger, taller and more athletic.
What now: Before signing Grimes, who is still rehabbing an Achilles injury, to a one-year deal Saturday morning the Dolphins planned to double-down on the position in the draft, selecting two cornerback early just like the team did in 2009 when Miami took Vontae Davis and Sean Smith in the same draft class. FSU cornerback Xavier Rhodes and Washington's Desmond Trufant are two realistic options for the No. 12 pick. Miami would have to trade up for Alabama's Dee Milliner. Houston's D.J. Hayden, LSU's Tharold Simon, North Carolina State's David Amerson, Boise State's Jamar Taylor, Oregon State's Jordan Poyer, Mississippi State's Darius Slay and Johnthan Banks, and Connecticut's Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Dwayne Gratz are option in the later rounds, so the Dolphins might not be in a rush to take a cornerback on day one. Cornerback is one of this draft's few deep positions by Ireland's standards.
