Miami Dolphins: Jordan Rodgers

DAVIE, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins will complete their 2014 NFL draft Saturday with five selections. They hold a fourth rounder, two fifth rounders, a sixth rounder and seventh rounder.

Will the Dolphins select a developmental quarterback with one of those selections?

Miami hasn't drafted a quarterback since the team took 2012 first-round pick Ryan Tannehill. Two years later, Tannehill is 15-17 and entering a pivotal third season. Drafting a third, developmental quarterback Saturday might provide long-term insurance.

There are still several big names left on the board at quarterback as the draft begins Round 4. Here are some productive college quarterbacks who are expected to get picked:
Tannehill is the unquestioned starting quarterback in Miami and veteran Matt Moore is a clear No. 2. But the third quarterback position is wide open with Pat Devlin and Jordan Rodgers. Any college quarterback from this \list could challenge Devlin and Rodgers and serve as a solid developmental project.
