The Miami Dolphins do not have a general manager. But whoever the new personnel boss is in Miami will have plenty of decisions to make.

Let's begin with the quarterbacks.

QBs under contract in 2014: Ryan Tannehill, Matt Moore, Pat Devlin

Free agents: None

Analysis: Miami’s quarterback position is stable, and that will be a huge perk for the next general manager. The Dolphins have a solid quarterback room, led by 2012 first-round pick Ryan Tannehill. He set career highs for passing yards (3,717), touchdowns (24) and passer rating (81.7) in 2013. It remains to be seen if he is Miami’s long-term solution for the next 7-10 years. However, Tannehill has done enough in the past two seasons to enter Year 3 as the starting quarterback. Matt Moore is one of the top backup quarterbacks in the NFL. Pat Devlin is a developmental quarterback who could face competition. It makes sense for the new general manager to draft a quarterback in the middle or late rounds this year to develop and for insurance in the future. But quarterback is not an issue for 2014.
