The Dolphins moved up the board (17 spots) to grab a running back (Daniel Thomas) who has been among the worst since he entered the league. He has averaged 3.59 yards per rush attempt, the lowest average for any back with as many carries (365) or more over the past three years.

It's not just whom the Dolphins drafted, but also whom they didn't draft. The Dolphins might kick themselves when they look back at the 2011 draft and find Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray selected nine picks later and Patriots running back Stevan Ridley selected two picks after that.

Hated the pick then, hate it today. Thought he was soft in college & he has proven to be soft in the NFL. Murry would have been the better pick, but dang the dude gets hurt stepping out of the shower.

I was not watching the draft, so there was not anyone I was wanting. I do recall thinking Miami should go Mallet in Rd. 3

Unfortunate....but to his defense our line has been pretty bad. It seems like our staff, to this point, has been pretty sold on the "Better line better running game" theory. I can't lie I'm part of that group too.
