Dolphins interested in Maybin?

Penn State held its Pro Day workout today for former Nittany Lions hoping to get a shot at playing in the NFL.  In all, 18 Penn State football players participated in a variety of drills similar to those run at the combine.  Two had a stellar day, according to the Allentown Morning Call.  WR Derrick Williams and DE/OLB Aaron Maybin were reportedly much more fluid in drills and improved on many of their combine results.

After the workout, Maybin had meetings with scouts and personnel from the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins.  Maybin, whose stock was slipping after a poor showing in drills and a slow 40 time at the combine, most likely had the best workout of all 18 participants.  He ran his 40 in 4.53 seconds, more than 0.25 seconds faster than his performance in Indianapolis, and improved his vertical (from 38 to 40 inches) and broad (from 10' 4" to 10' 10") jumps.

"It was a good day," Maybin said outside Holuba Hall afterward. "I know my athletic ability and I know what I'm capable of. I put some numbers on the board that are indicative of the kind of player I am."

A lot of talk around this site has been who we should take at pick 25.  A young, pass rushing OLB would be a nice addition - though possibly a luxury we don't need at the moment.  However, Maybin seems to be improving and has solidifed himself as a first rounder.

If he is available at 25, do we take him over a CB or WR?  Thoughts?
