"Do the Dolphins' draft plans get murkier as the team moves up the draft order? Sure. But the assumption that Miami getting the top-overall pick would provide them with a layup is asinine, as there is absolutely no such thing as a layup in the draft. Rather, player development is what mitigates risk for teams as they add prospects to their roster each season. And Miami is showing signs of life in that department — something the Dolphins have not seen in decades. It is a huge deal. And it transcends the need for the top pick in the draft."
