Let’s start with the fact that a lot of teams draft horizontally. There’s nothing wrong with drafting horizontally. Ron Wolf built the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers of the 1990s drafting horizontally.

...

It means that the Dolphins are not necessarily going to be drafting the best available player.

It means that even if the Dolphins don’t pick the best available player, they can make the case they did exactly that.

Drafting horizontally, one critic of the format told me last week, is a great way to fool the media and the owner into thinking you’re picking the best available player who coincidently plays a position of need (wink, wink) when what you’re really doing is just filling your greatest needs.

A proponent of drafting horizontally countered that it’s the best way to marry two draft-day desires: Getting the best players, yes, but also doing it at the positions you need to improve.

Whomever Miami drafts, I hope it is a day one starter in the lineup and provides an "impact" especially with pick #12.

BPA does you no good if you already have good talent and depth at the position. The Dolphins are in a good situation right now. At 12, and with the picks they have, they are capable of easily moving up to the top ten. This means they will be able to get a top tier offensive lineman, cornerback, or pass rusher, whatever they want. Personally, I think they'll target a left tackle to protect Tannehill's blindside.
I'm hoping the Chiefs take a defender, the Eagles fall in love with Fisher, and the Dolphins trade up to snag Joeckel. This way Tannehill gets his blindside tackle, and an arsenal of receiver options in one offseason.

Drafting an offensive linemen is one of the safest picks you can get. The bust factor on Joekcle is much more minimal than on guys like Jordan/Ansah.

You could be like Detriot and draft the best wr. Every year....

Of course you consider the :fit with your team just like character....If a qb that had the same grade as Tanny fell to you at 12 would you take him?
