Like most NFL teams, the Miami Dolphins spent between $2-3 million to scout and evaluate draft prospects.

The team's personnel department investigates the medical history and background of 500-plus draft prospects for the eight selections they discussed for four months before making this weekend's picks.

Excuse me, but I’d feel a little better about this talent haul if players such as sixth-rounder Matt Hazel had been good enough to play in, say, the Southeastern Conference instead of the Big South.

As one wise football man once told me, a team can make exceptions when adding talent from small schools, but if you add too many small-school players, you’ve now got a small-school team.

So there’s that minor concern, even if it’s one general manager Dennis Hickey dismisses.
