Miami Dolphins must draft Alabama’s Eddie Lacy
The Miami Dolphins, regardless of Lamar Miller, should draft Eddie Lacy of Alabama 12th overall. Now before you light up the comment board and shake your head at this evaluation; take some time to think about what this draft for the Dolphins is going to symbolize years down the line. Five picks in the first three rounds and the Dolphins have a draft class to make those picks into a franchise turnaround roster. However when you evaluate who the Dolphins will pick with the 12th pick; it’s a lot of safe players. Kenny Vaccaro, Chance Warmack, Keenan Allen, Lane Johnson and the list goes on.
This franchise has been making the safe picks in the first round under Jeff Ireland his entire tenure.2008: Jake Long: safe pick.
2009: Vontae Davis: safe pick for where he was drafted.
2010: Jared Odrick: safe pick.
2011: Mike Pouncey: safe pick.
