    I like Star, Werner, Trufant, Eifert, or Carradine because they'll be impact players... No to Ziggy..

    Here is one more interesting tidbit on why I think we need to draft Cooper or Warmack. Last year we ran 51% (about league average) of our running plays between the guards. 51% is pretty crazy especially to think that John Jerry was one of those guards who was pretty subpar. By bringing in Cooper or Warmack we instantly have one of the best interior lines in the NFL to which we run over half of our running plays. Then we just bump out Jerry to compete with Yeatman and Garner at RT with Martin at LT. Most pass rushes are 4 man so Guards, TE, and RB can help if needed. Doesn't really fix the OL but at least fixes it where we use it.

    I agree 100% ...... You would also improve 2 spots as incognito is a better player at RG than LG.

    In addition, everyone is mentioning the fact that Soliai & Starks are FA next year, but incognito & jerry are too. Next year I'm sure Odrick slides inside, but neither Cog or Jerry fit the ZBS.

    I know it's not the sexy pick, but Warmack or Cooper will turn into what we now have with mike pouncey. The idea if having a left side of Martin-Cooper-Pouncey, for the next 6-8 years is very appealing
    Identify the 4 positions of strength in the draft, then double up on each........ if possible


    Tailor Free Agency accordingly, so that your need is these 4 strengths


    2014 draft - RB - WR - OT - OG


    1-Carlos Hyde RB Ohio St.
    2-Marcus Martin OG/C USC
    3-Donte Moncrief WR Mississippi
    4-David Yankey OG Stanford
    5-Seantrel Henderson OT Miami
    6-Laurent Duvernay-Tardif OT McGill
    7-Jeff Janis WR Saginaw Valley St.

    The more I think about it, the more I think its going to be a tackle. OT or DT. We will sit at 12 and wait and see which of the 6 top tackles fall to us.

    3 OTs
    Joeckel
    Fisher
    Johnson

    3 DTs
    Floyd
    Lotulelei
    Richardson

    all it would take to move up to spot #4 is our 1st, 2nd and 4th...thats not bad to get Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher.

    But if we stay at 12, I think playmaker is the need. Bjoern Werner. Someone to go after the QB; I think Star is a good DL, but doesnt he have heart issues? Id be kind of worried.

    A good RT and OG can be had in the 2nd round: Pugh, Armstead, Long. We have two 2nd round picks, we can easily get 2 of them. As much as Id like Tyler Eifert, we already have Dustin Keller whos a good TE...sures hes only one year deal, but a TE is someone who doesnt need grooming. If we get Tyler Eifert, he better start right away. And we dont really need two starting TEs.

    So, i think a DE like Bjoern Werner is the best pick IF we stay at 12.

    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.

    I have pointed that's the best option if we can't trade up for Johnson.

    In fact it's a pretty short draft board.

    Mr Pinocchio, I mean Mr. Ireland said they have more love for Joeckel and Fisher than for Johnson, but after understanding zone-blocking O-line, it's clear that Philbin and Sherman will claim for Johnson as primary target.

    So drafting at #12 you need at least 12 players on a draft board:
    01) OT Lane Johnson
    02) OT Eric Fisher
    03) OT Luke Joeckel
    04) CB Dee Milliner
    05) DT Sharrif Floyd
    06) DT Star Lotulelei
    07) OLB/DE Ezekiel Ansah
    08) OLB Dion Jordan
    09) OLB/DE Bjoern Werner
    10) G Chance Warmack
    11) OLB/DE Barkevious Mingo
    12) TE Tyler Eifert
    13) OLB/DE Damontre Moore
