MIAMI - 2009: Jeff Ireland of the Miami Dolphins poses for his 2009 NFL headshot at photo day in Miami, Florida. (Photo by NFL Photos)
Jeff Ireland has been very busy making trades and picks on the 2nd and 3rd day of the NFL draft. The Dolphins used their picks taking Round 2 pick 22, Dolphins selected CB Jamar Taylor from Boise State. The Dolphins received an 85.5 grade from NFL.com as many had Taylor as the 3rd ranked CB in this draft. Daniel Jeremiah ‏@MoveTheSticks16h MIami just selected one of my favorite players in the draft, Boise St CB Jamar Taylor. Consistent player on every tape I studied. Rock solid Josh Norris ‏@JoshNorris2h More Dolphins: I've ranked Jamar Taylor as the top senior CB since the Senior Bowl. Jamar Taylor said on himself " I play with swagger. I'm kind of chippy. I like to talk stuff and have fun. I love to play real agressive". Sounds good to me.  I absolutely love the value of this pick. Round 3 pick 15, Dolphins OT Dallas Thomas, Tennessee Thomas projects most likely as a RG, it will be interesting to see where they put him. Thomas is versatile and can probably be moved around. Thomas played LT and Guard at Ten. Omar Kelly ‏@OmarKelly13h For those wondering, Tennessee LG Dallas Thomas, who the Dolphins selected in the 2nd round, is rated by PFW as a 2nd RD talent. Round 3 pick 31, CB Will Davis Phins traded back into the 3rd round to double dip at the CB position. Most people like Davis's tape however are not sure warranted the price tag of trading back up for him. Ireland stated he was eager to grab another CB after 2 had just been taken before Davis.   Rob Proffitt ‏@aqua_and_orange12h Will Davis led the NCAA in passes defensed with 22 last season. #Dolphins "I see Will Davis as a corner. I see he has corner skillset....he has the skillset to play in this league," Ireland on Davis. Round 4 pick 7 Jelani Jenkins LB, Fla Dolphins continued to build their defense playing a player who will contribute on special teams right away and is known for strong coverage skills. Many had Jenkins as one of the top cover LB in the draft. Round 4 pick 9 TE Dion Sims Mich State Dolphins address a need and take TE Dion Sims. Sims is seen more as a blocking TE than a pure pass catcher.  Mike Mayock says that Sims is one of the best inline blockers in the draft. Sims won't explode on the stat sheet but the Dolphins needed blocking support after Fasano left in free agency.
