This offseason has been one of vocal reaction to everything Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland has done. From the flying of a banner over the stadium, to a "protest" outside the team facilities, to multiple "Fireland" tweets and posts, Ireland has been the Dolphins fans' most wanted all offseason.

But, yesterday, the Phinsider Community gave the 2012 Draft a "B" grade. My question is, has the desire to have Ireland's head calmed with what is seen as a good draft?

During the 2012 NFL Draft, the Dolphins selected quarterback Ryan Tannehill with the eighth overall pick, the first time the team has selected a first-round quarterback since 1983's selection of Dan Marino. Ireland followed that pick up by adding offensive tackle Jonathan Martin, defensive end Olivier Vernon, tight end Michael Egnew, running back Lamar Miller, linebacker Josh Kaddu, wide receiver B.J. Cunningham, defensive tackle Kheeston Randall, and wide receiver Rishard Matthews.

Did that draft change your opinion of Ireland and the job he is doing? Vote to let us know, and leave your comments below.
