Interesting to see if we use Justin Smiley to trade down or to get a pick in draft day since a lot of teams are in need of OL...
It will also be interesting to see if we get a new TE maybe in the 3rd... They say we like Dennis Pitta from Brigham Young... I saw him at the combine and was impressed with his ball skills... I'm not so sure about his X factor...
Dennis Pitta is my boy. The guy has Dallas Clark type of receiving skills, but has the frame and toughness to be a good blocker.

Re: Interesting article by Omar Kelly
I definitely think there will be a run on OL in the early part of the 1st round, but I don't think it will push Eric Berry down into Miami territory. I think Dez Bryant could possibly be there depending on his Pro Day.
Dennis Pita is by far the most polished TE in this draft and has shown himself to be a better blocker and athlete than a lot of people thought. He could be what David Martin was for Miami in 2008, a TE that can stretch the field.
Jimmy Graham is such an intriguing prospect. 6'6, 260 lbs running a 4.53 40. He is raw because of last year being his first year playing football, but what I saw of him, he looks good, runs pretty solid routes and catches the ball well.
Miami's dream scenario would be to trade down and acquire additional picks.
