Seven of the Dolphins' eight draft picks in 2010 were defensive players. Considering their offensive struggles this past season and the front office's commitment to changing the offense, expect most of this year's pick to come on that side of the ball. The Dolphins, however, don't have a second-round pick in this year's draft because of the trade for WR Brandon Marshall. But GM Jeff Ireland made it seem like the team will be working to regain that pick come draft weekend to help bolster its squad. "You obviously know you don't have it right now, but there are ways to get it back," he said at the Senior Bowl. "As of now we don't have one; who knows on Draft Day?" With that pick, the Dolphins could address the need for another signalcaller to compete with Chad Henne. "The quarterback position is obviously important. We'll evaluate what's out there in free agency and the draft like we do with every position," Ireland added.
