The NFL Combine is here, and with it an entire weekend of 40-yard dashes, gauntlets and the question of whether hand and arm length should actually affect one's draft stock. And with all of the draft madness currently taking place in Indianapolis, now is as good a time as ever to identify the top 50 prospects who make sense for the Dolphins this spring.
We're still a day away from on-field workouts at this year's NFL Combine, but the Dolphins' vantage point on the incoming draft class is already pretty clear. Here's my own view of how this group stacks up for the Dolphins.
(Note: Prospects who are projected as top 10 locks--Luke Jockel, Eric Fisher, Cordarrelle Patterson, Jarvis Jones--are largely absent from this list.)
