Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins completed one of the most amazing one-year turnarounds in NFL history. Too bad the only way you can top that is by winning the Super Bowl. Jake Long has plenty of haters to prove wrong (hi) in his second season, and we all saw how Joe Thomas struggled a little bit in his sophomore campaign. Will Ted Ginn ever live up to the hype? Can Joey Porter prove he truly is still an elite pass-rusher after last year's amazing season?

I do not doubt a great head coach like Tony Sparano, but plenty of questions surround this team. A great draft could bring a much-needed influx of talent.

On to Miami's draft range at No. 25 overall:

Outside Linebacker: Matt Roth is average and can be upgraded with an elite pass rusher. Everette Brown, Aaron Maybin and Clint Sintim would all fit in well in the Bill Parcells' mold. He passed up on Chris Long last year, and I have a feeling he wants to get some youth to this pass rush.

Cornerback: Illinois' Vontae Davis and Wake Forest's Alphonso Smith seem like the prime candidates at No. 25 overall. I feel like they best fit this defense and Darius Butler will be long gone at this point.

Wide Receiver: This offense needs a possession receiver for Chad Pennington and Chad Henne. Rutgers' Kenny Britt and UNC's Hakeem Nicks could be first-round picks. Nicks, Oklahoma's Juaquin Iglesias and Ohio State's Brian Robiskie seem like they would all be good fits in Miami.

Nose tackle will be an attractive option in the second round. Jason Ferguson is 34 and a young player could be had to give this defense even more of a future. Boston College's Ron Brace would be an ideal selection in the second round. Auburn's Sen'Derrick Marks and Michigan's Terrance Taylor could be third- or fourth-round picks. I like Kentucky's Myron Pryor as a late-rounder.

Miami has several options on Draft Day. Its needs match up well in the first round, so we should expect big things from the Big Tuna.
