Morning take: Dolphins draft reaction

May, 9, 2014
Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Friday:
  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald says first-round pick Ja’Wuan James makes sense.
Morning take: I don’t have a problem with filling the need at right tackle. But the Dolphins reached and perhaps could have traded back for the same player and acquired extra draft picks.
  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes the Dolphins missed out on top-tier offensive tackles.
Morning take: The board didn’t fall Miami’s way. Potential targets like Taylor Lewan and Zack Martin were taken off the board, forcing Miami to take the fifth-rated tackle according to the general consensus.
  • Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel says Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey still has work to do.
Morning take: The Dolphins still have six picks to round out this year’s draft class. There are still impact players available.
  • The Dolphins team site has photos of Hickey and head coach Joe Philbin working together.
Morning take: Miami’s new power duo is working to turn the team around.
