With the 2013 NFL Draft less than two weeks ago, the Dolphins are pretty stacked and in good position, currently holding onto 11 picks and the no. 12 spot in the first round. They could however, look to trade up into the top 3 if the opportunity presents itself. “I’ve got enough ammunition to get to the first pick if I wanted to, but I don’t see myself doing that, personally,” Dolphisn GM Jeff Ireland said, via the  Palm Beach Post. “If I get another [Mike] Pouncey and another Jake Long, I would do it every draft. I wish I had a whole team full of Mike Pounceys and Jake Longs, to be honest with you. I know what I’m getting every single day with those guys.” They lost Jake Long in free agency and could very well look to make a splash on a highly touted offensive lineman once again. It was reported earlier  that the team was impressed with with Oklahoma tackle Lane Johnson, who projects to go early in the first round. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

Abraham would be a nice addition alongside Cameron Wake, but it will be interesting to see how much money he’s looking for. It’s been obvious this offseason that the Dolphins aren’t afraid to spend money now.   Need...

Dolphins future in Miami hinges on May 14 vote?

  Could the Miami Dolphins end up leaving Florida? As an out of town fan and blogger at Phins Phocus, I have wondered about this turn of events that is the eventual vote on renovating Sun Life Stadium.  Just down the street, I have noticed how the 49ers have put themselves in position to have a state of the art stadium with naming rights for years to come and flush...

Report: Dolphins are not as high on Lane Johnson as once suspected

Yesterday, Jeff Ireland spoke about the Dolphins offensive line and said that Nate Garner was one of their ‘core guys’.  The Dolphins aren’t admitting that they have a glaring need at offensive tackle…..but everyone knows it.  The Dolphins will address either the left tackle or the right tackle position, early in the draft…they have to.  That is, of course, unless they...

2013 NFL Draft Team Needs: Miami Dolphins

1. Cornerback: Miami really only has two pressing needs coming into the draft, and the top one is at cornerback. Grimes will be a good signing if he can be healthy, but you just never know after having major surgery. They also need to find an upgrade across from him for when he is healthy. There is a good chance they address this situation in the first round. If not, they also...

Dolphins draft breakdown: The past five years

Being one of the NFL's more successful teams during a 25-year stretch in the...
