Position Needs for Miami
Offensive Tackle: Sure the Dolphins offensive line played better the second half of the season, but protecting the quarterback and opening up holes for the running game is still a problem. An elite left tackle is something Miami has been lacking, adding one could greatly improve line play.
Cornerback: Thank god the defensive line was superb or the Dolphins secondary could have been exposed for the frauds they are. They corners don't make any big plays, proved by the stat of only 5 count'em, 5 interceptions by the defensive backs in all of the 2006 season.
Defensive Line: Last years defensive player of the year Jason Taylor is one of the best athletes in the game, but Taylor turns 33 this season. David Bowens (Jets) and Kevin Carter (Tampa Bay) both departed, depth and youth is needed.
Draft Outlook for the Miami Dolphins
The Dolphins have not drafted well the last 5 years and that is a big part as to why they haven't been to the postseason in that time frame. They have also dealt away draft picks for busts, Ricky Williams did produce a couple decent seasons but with all the headaches he caused the franchise, in hindsight it was a bad deal, as was dealing for Daunte Culpepper.
The big move of the Fins offseason was the acquisition of stud linebacker Joey Porter from the Pittsburgh Settlers. With the addition of Porter and a couple young pickups in the draft, this Dolphins defense should be down right nasty in 2007.
The question is, will the Dolphins offense be able to score enough for them to win games. At number 9, Penn State's Levi Brown would fill an offensive tackle void the line desperately needs to give QB some time. The rest of the draft will be spent plugging holes, but overall Miami looks to be in a good position to return back to the playoffs in 07.
