THE DAILY TAKE

The Daily Take will be posted every weekday at 3 p.m. and will offer our opinion on a pertinent topic involving the Dolphins. Today we discuss the safety position.

Coach Dave Wannstedt was asked about the team's priorities in the upcoming draft, but refused to single out one position as needing the most help.

But it was interesting to note that of the few positions he did mention, the first one was safety. Wannstedt said the team would like to get a young safety.

That's interesting because wide receiver, left tackle and outside linebacker would appear to be much more pressing needs.

But Wannstedt is right, though.

The Dolphins are a little shaky at safety, to be quite honest. Arturo Freeman did not have a good season in his first year as a starter, Brock Marion isn't as good as his Pro Bowl credentials would indicate, and the backups are more special teams standouts than anything else.

The Dolphins also think there are a lot of quality safeties available in this year's draft, so don't be surprised if they pick one.

It wouldn't be a great shock if it happened with the Dolphins' first pick, either.
