    OPINION Who the Dolphins will pick at 12, and why?

    I do believe the Dolphins are hoping one of the top 3 LT's falls to 12, which I believe explains the dragging of the feet by them on Eric Winston and Branden Albert.

    I don't believe any of these 3 will fall, which leaves the Dolphins looking at Corners that are not that much better, if any, than corners that can be had in round 2.

    Wide receivers are the same, deep draft and quality can be had later at this position as well. Same for the tight end position.

    I don't believe any of these end pass rushers are exciting enough for pick 12 either.

    That leaves me with the position where I believe the best player available plays and where I believe the Dolphins will go.

    Randy Starks is franchised, Soliai is on the final year of his deal....so.....BlueFin predicts the number one overall pick of the Miami Dolphins will be:

    Star Lotulelei...DT Utah...Will disrupt the QB and provide pass rush from inside.

    Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.

    I think they will take a big guy at 12.

    One of the LT's if they drop or maybe Shelden Richardson who would be an excellent replacement for Starks after next year.

    But Vacarro is an interesting prospect though maybe a bit of a reach at 12.

    I think we will take the highest rated IMPACT player. Either Austin, Eifert, Patterson, or a pass rusher

    Though not necessarily my first choice, I wouldn't have a problem with Eifert or Richardson.

    However, I would pass on Fluker, Watson or Vaccaro at 12.

    A 1st rounder is supposed to be an immediate impact guy, how is he going to impact the game if he's behind 2 other DTs and probably a 3rd with Odrick?

    I believe Lotulelei would have a huge impact on this team, he has been compared to Ngata by many. Again, Starks is franchised for one year, Soliai has one year left on his deal.

    That screams the need for a DT for the future to me, with of course the other holes on this team getting filled in the draft this year.

    I see this as the best player available scenario.

    I would not have a problem with Eifert, however, I don't think they will see the great difference between Eifert and some of the guys that are expected to still be there later in the draft(Travis Kelce for example).

    I see Star Lotulelei as an impact player that will change games, I think when the Dolphins actually draft you will see Ireland does as well. You can't get players of his caliber at his position later in the draft, you can at other positions.

    If Lane Johnson is still on the board at #10, I would offer the Titans our 12th pick and 3B pick for us to move up two spots to get him. I think this would be a fair trade. But if not, take Tavon Austin at #12, and we can get our LT later.
