Last week, NFL.com published their post-draft power rankings, and, somehow, I missed them. We correct that this morning with a look at how NFL.com and NFL Network analyst Elliot Harrison views the Miami Dolphins following a frenzy in free agency and the draft.
Change: Up 3
Miami got its man on draft day, and was willing to pay the price to do it. Jeff Ireland rolled the dice a lot this offseason, in more ways than just dealing his 42nd overall pick to swoop in at No. 3 and obtain the draft's best pass-rushing prospect ( Dion Jordan). I ran into Jordan in March, as well as at the draft. Bottom line: If his shoulder is right, he can be a force. With Cameron Wake, Randy Starks, Dannell Ellerbe and Reshad Jones in the mix, you might be looking at a wild-card team.
I'll take that. Sitting in 15th prior to the start of the NFL season seems about right for Miami. Assessing the team as a "wild-card team" is even better.
What do you think of the ranking? Too high? Too low?
