Ireland failed to address the biggest problem (OL) last year in free agency and the draft.
He did not fail to address it. We signed Tyson Clabo and drafted Dallas Thomas.
It's not as if he didn't make an attempt. And I find it interesting that Clabo was coming off a good year with the Falcons and played better in his second opportunity to start for us. That smells like a coaching issue to me. Our offensive line also imploded because of the Bullygate scandal.
Ireland has continued to miss on 2nd through 5th round picks since he has been here.
Olivier Vernon, Lamar Miller, Koa Misi, Brian Hartline, Sean Smith all 2-4 round picks.
Throw in Clay, Jimmy Wilson, Nolan Carroll, Reshad Jones, Chris Clemons and Rishard Matthews as late round picks that have panned out.
All teams are going to have more misses than hits in the mid to late rounds.
The Dolphins have hit on all of their first round picks since Ireland has been here, though.
The trade up to grab Dion Jordan while ignoring the glaring need at o-line is a real head scratcher.
Except that all the offensive lineman that were available have sucked.
