Morning take: Zack Martin to Miami?

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Monday from around the Web:

  • The Dolphins team site examines the projection by ESPN's Mel Kiper that the Dolphins will take Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin at No. 19 overall.

Morning take: Martin has versatility at guard and tackle, and the Dolphins need both. Martin also has natural leadership ability, which is needed in Miami.

  • Charlie McCarthy of Fox Sports Florida expects the Dolphins to look at more options in the secondary.

Morning take: I expect Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes to return. But there could be a hole at safety and another cornerback spot. The Dolphins may not re-sign starting safety Chris Clemons or keep cornerback Dimitri Patterson at his high salary.

  • Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports the Dolphins coaching staff expects more from rookie cornerback Jamar Taylor in 2014.

Morning take: Taylor was a second-round pick last year who had a redshirt season, due to various ailments. But Taylor was a highly-touted prospect who will get another shot.

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel wonders if the Dolphins should add competition for starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

Morning take: There was a recent report that suggested backup Matt Moore could push Tannehill this year. That remains to be seen. But I think the organization should be 100 percent behind Tannehill so that he has the best chance to succeed.
