Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen – QB not a need since four are on the roster. But teams might want to trade up to get him.
Illinois WR Arrelius Benn – Impressive athleticism, but inconsistent hands. However, he would bring a return element. But WR is pretty crowded right now, and that’s after dumping Ted Ginn Jr.
Notre Dame WR Golden Tate – Marginal route runner, but dynamic deep threat. Is also a capable returner. Teams might move up to get him and Benn. Dolphins could benefit from a run on receivers today.
Arizona TE Rob Gronkowski – Some teams are scared off by his medical history, which might cause him to drop a round or two more. The Dolphins are looking for a seam threat, and he can be that. But the Dolphins might prefer to wait till day three to add a tight end like UM’s Jimmy Graham or Florida’s Aaron Hernandez.
Maryland OT Bruce Campbell – He’s an athletic freak who is a fairly raw offensive tackle. The Dolphins are set at that spot for now, but Campbell might have the athleticism needed to develop into a starting guard. It’s likely that Oakland will gobble him up early today.
USC OT Charles Brown – He’s probably the best offensive tackle left on the board, and it’s highly likely that a team will offer to trade up to get this two-year starter.
Northwestern DE Corey Wooton – Has the prototype size the Trifecta seek, but there are some concerns about his durability that have him dropping. He might slide out of day two. Dolphins do need some hybrid linebackers in this draft class.
Texas OLBer Sergio Kindle – There are reports that Kindle, who was considered one of this draft’s top hybrid prospects, fell out of the first round because of concerns about a troublesome knee. Are the Dolphins one of the team’s scared off by his knees, and troublesome background?
USC DE Everson Griffin – Has good size and muscularity, and the athleticism to play linebacker. But his inconsistent effort and questionable mental toughness made him slide. It likely means he doesn’t have the Trifiecta’s desired makeup.
UF DE Carlos Dunlap – Great body length, and fluid athlete who might have the versatility to become a hybrid pass rusher. But character questions and a questionable work ethic makes him a boom or bust prospect. He could go today, or might wait till early tomorrow.
Penn State ILBer Sean Lee – Penn State linebacker have excellent instincts, and Lee is no exception. However, his injury history kept him out of the first round. But he is the best inside linebacker available. Too bad the addition of Tim Dobbins means that unit is pretty filled.
Oklahoma State CB Perrish Cox – A run on cornerbacks is expected today, and Cox has outstanding size and length. He also brings added value as a returner. The Dolphins do need a returner, but might get that later in the draft.
USC SS Taylor Mays – Physical freak, who is a workout warrior. But the film doesn’t match his athleticism. The fact he’s more strong safety than free safety makes him less desirable to plenty of NFL teams, including the Dolphins.
USF FS Nate Allen – His decent ball skills and above average athleticism could make him the next safety drafted. A run on that position is expected today and the Dolphins might be left with a third-tier prospects if they don’t pursue one early.
So, who would you be targeting in tonight’s second and third round
