The Miami Dolphins hold the No. 19 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, which will take place on May 8. The Dolphins have a variety of positions that they'll need to address in next week's draft. There are also a variety of questions that the Dolphins will have to answer. Here are the top five questions the Dolphins will answer during the NFL draft.
The Dolphins have as many as three starting offensive line spots that they'll have to fill before the start of the season. With the exception of Branden Albert at left tackle and Mike Pouncey at center, the Dolphins are currently a mess along the offensive line. With so many top prospects at the offensive line positions, such as Zack Martin and Cyrus Kouandjio, just who will the Dolphins draft?
With Ryan Tannehill entrenched as the franchise quarterback for now, the Dolphins obviously will not be spending a high-round draft pick on a quarterback in the draft. However, the Dolphins could still spend a middle-round draft pick on a quarterback. Could we possibly see Miami use a third or fourth-round draft pick on a QB prospect, such as Alabama's A.J. McCarron?
A few months ago, it was reported the Dolphins were shopping DE Dion Jordan. The Philadelphia Eagles attempted to acquire Jordan with the offer of a second-round draft pick and DE Brandon Graham. However, the Dolphins did not accept. Though the Dolphins did not jump at the immediate chance of trading Jordan, one has to wonder if the Dolphins will trade the former No. 3 overall pick during the draft.
Though Charles Clay cemented himself as a dependable target at tight end for Ryan Tannehill, new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor has a penchant for utilizing tight ends as playmakers in his offensive system. With the Dolphins lacking depth after Clay at the tight end position, Jace Amaro of Texas A&M becomes a possible selection for the Dolphins in the second round.
A possible alternative choice for the Dolphins in the first round is Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley. Mosley is considered the top linebacker in this year's draft class and will be selected in the middle-to-late rounds. Offensive line is such a pressing need for the Dolphins, but linebacker is a weak spot of the team. The Dolphins may elect to draft a playmaker like Mosley at LB instead of a franchise o-lineman.
