    • The Dolphins are set on drafting a right tackle in round 1. They rate Greg Robinson, Jake Matthews, and Taylor Lewan highly. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported on the Dolphins' interest in Lewan last week, so this is a second report saying that despite "character issues," the Dolphins are willing to draft Lewan at #19.
    • After those 3, the Dolphins' rankings of OTs gets interesting. Cyrus Kouandjio apparently has a first round grade from the Dolphins and is rated ahead of Zach Martin, whom the Dolphins see as a guard, and Morgan Moses, who played under new Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor when Lazor coached the University of Virginia football team a couple of years ago. If true, this means the Dolphins are not one of the teams whose physicians reportedly failed Kouandijo after his physical at the NFL combine. For what it's worth, renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews recently wrote a letterinsisting Kouandijo's knees were fine. The Dolphins reportedly have concerns about Moses' "work ethic," which Lazor would know a lot about after being Moses' head coach.
    • The Dolphins have no intention of drafting a starting linebacker, and they instead intend to move Koa Misi to middle linebacker, Dannell Ellerbe to weakside linebacker, and Phillip Wheeler to strongside linebacker. It's been reported before by the Miami Herald that the Dolphins have been pondering playing "musical chairs" at the linebacker spot with players switching positions (click here for an explanation for the different linebacker spots), so this counts as a second report backing that up. However, despite trying to signD'Qwell Jackson in free agency, the Dolphins are allegedly not interested in drafting a starting linebacker in the draft and would rather see if position switches improve production.
    • The Dolphins plan on drafting an offensive guard in round 2, unless a wide receiver like Kelvin Benjamin or Brandin Cooks fell to round 2. Otherwise, they want to address wide receiver and running back in the mid-to-later rounds. Armando Salguero of the Miami Heraldhas reported before that the Dolphins see running back as a mid-to-later round need, but this is the first report of the Dolphins wanting to address WR in rounds 2 or 3 of the draft.
    • Here's an exact quote that will make ct1361 dance on his desk at home: "If Miami gets a receiver as high as the second round, it could mean the end for receiver Brian Hartline after the 2014 season, the source said." Hartline's salary in 2014 is guaranteed, but he becomes a viable cap casualty after the 2014 season.
    • Brandon Gibson is reportedly safe as the Dolphins' WR3, likely because his current contract is so reasonable (paying him 1/2 as much as Hartline and 1/4 as much as Mike Wallace per year). However, if the Dolphins draft a later round WR, the rookie would compete withRishard Matthews because the Dolphins have had discussions about replacing Matthews and receiver Armon Binns.
    • The Dolphins intend to go offense-heavy early in the draft, but they're looking at cornerback and safety as later round needs. They apparently also like Alabama defensive end Ed Stinson who is projected as a mid-round draft pick.

    I really don't think too much of this actually was a secret. RT first round was obvious to me and OG in the second as well. When it comes to LB i fell victim to the media in believing they needed a LB because i didn't even have them getting anyone early this off season. WR if of great value is easy for any team in the 2nd-3rd round and them having visits from guys like Moncreif and Lee makes it no surprise if they go that route. No doubt they would go Lewan at 19 seeing as he is a top 10 guy and ive seen him mocked as high as 6.

    Kouandjio over Moses doesn't surprise seeing as Cyrus was a top pick before a medical issues that has been cleared by many and also since Moses was originally a 3rd round guy. Cyrus over Martin however is a surprise but if they do view Martin as a guard and they want a tackle it makes sense. I would like to see the Guards that they have interest in because there is a big group of guards set to go in the 2nd.

    Please. Pretty please. Tell me the plethora of stupid things Hickey has done.

    Kouandijo was sloppy this year and the way he was beaten like a drum in the Sugar Bowl soured me on him.
