They have done a great job of keeping things quiet with Ponder (guy I think they really want).
There has been plenty of talk about Jeff Ireland and Colin Kaepernick. I think it's a smokescreen. Jeff for the most part is safe, but even he can't afford to go get a project like that in the first round. The Dalton talk is coming because of Peter King's mock draft, not something the Dolphins put out there. However I have heard that Bill Parcells was in the meeting they had with Dalton, and that's the only QB prospect he was with Ireland/Sparano to meet with.
I'm not sure what to make of Mallett. They put the word out that they hated him, and now that they love him. Who knows. I think there's interest there, but in the end I don't think he's the type of QB or the type of person they'd draft in the middle of the first round. I think Ponder is the guy; he fits what they need and want in a QB, and they have been doing everything possible to keep his name out of connection with themselves.
Edit: Just found this...

Couple things come to mind. 1) He said the same about Henne. 2) Remember last year when J-Lo was asked on some late night show who she wanted the Dolphins to draft, and she claimed to have no insight but said she wanted Dan Williams??
