We're just a couple of days away from the 75th NFL Draft. Over the past couple of months, we've done a lot of more in-depth posts about the draft and what might happen. And we'll probably spend the coming months breaking down what actually did happen.
So for today, let's take a break from the more analytical posts and just focus on one simple question.
A couple of weeks ago, I created a poll that asked this simple question: which player do you want the Dolphins to draft in round one? The over 4,500 people who responded voted in favor of Dez Bryan the most, earning 33% of the vote. He was followed by Earl Thomas (15%), C.J. Spiller (11%), and Dan Williams (10%).
But the Brandon Marshall trade has changed everything. I'm guessing we won't see Dez Bryant win this version of the poll.
It's important to note that I have purposely left guys off this list. Players like Eric Berry, Ndamukong Suh, and other likely top five picks were left off because the odds they fall to the Dolphins are slim. Quarterbacks and tackles were left off because, well, the Dolphins really have no need for one right now.
So below is the very large poll. And keep in mind this is asking who you WANT the Dolphins to draft - not who you THINK they will draft. Big difference. And please note that this regardless of if the Dolphins trade down or remain at number twelve. So if you want to see the Dolphins trade down a few spots and take Brandon Graham, for example, then just vote for Graham.
Got it? Good. Vote and then feel free to explain why below...
