1. This draft lacks elite players - prospects everyone is certain will be dynamic on the next level - but it is relatively strong from a depth standpoint. Many draftniks predict you'll be getting a similar player with pick 20 as you would find with pick 50 or 60.
2. There are five elite offensive linemen - Luke Joeckel, Eric Fisher, Lane Johnson, Chance Warmack and Jonathan Cooper - in this draft, and all five will likely be gone in the first 20 picks. The run on offensive linemen might be reminiscent of the 2008 draft, which pushed second-tier offensive linemen up, and featured nine offensive tackles going in the first round. That means while Syracuse offensive lineman Justin Pugh might be a second-round prospect talent wise some team's need might push him into the first round.
3. Because of this draft's perceived depth more than half of the team's picking in the first round would be open to trading their picks, and that includes the Dolphins, who are willing to give up a second-rounder to move up. The Dolphins will probably be interested in trading down if none of the three offensive tackles are on the board. The teams ahead of Miami that are willing to make a deal are Kansas City (first pick), Jacksonville (second pick), Oakland (third pick) and Cleveland (sixth pick). General Manager Jeff Ireland told the Sun-Sentinel he's right out of the range he needs to get one of the top tier players in this draft. It should be interesting to see if he uses his "ammunition" to get up there.
