The Miami Dolphins used their first pick in the seventh, and final, round of the 2012 NFL Draft to select University of Texas defensive tackle Kheeston Randall. Randall was projected early in his college career to be an early draft pick, but as his final season in college progressed, he fell further and further down draft boards. He will be used in a fashion similar to Paul Soliai, looked to clog up the middle of the line, and stuff the run, while allowing the end guys to pressure the quarterback.
What he brings: He has a strong anchor to hold up against the run on the interior. However, he lacks overall range and doesn't have adequate quickness to be effective as a pass-rusher at this point.
Bucky Brooks' take: Randall was once touted as an early-round prospect, but a disappointing final season leveled his draft stock. However, he possesses the size and strength to emerge as a quality interior defender as a pro.
