Myles Jack suddenly find himself slipping down draft boards after reports of his meniscus tear came out. The tear caused Jack to miss most of his 2015 season and teams are reportedly concerned about the cartilage issue in his knee. This is the same issue that made Jay Ajayi slip down draft boards. Jack was projected as a top 5 pick and is now falling into the middle of the first round. Should the Dolphins pull the trigger if he is there when they pick, that is, if he makes it to them?

Brackdraft: Miami Dolphins likely to target CB, RB with early picks | FOX Sports
Round numbers tell the tale. The Miami Dolphins allowed exactly 4,000 net yards passing last year, the highest total in their 50 seasons and a big reason they lost 10 games.
