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 examine the Dolphins' success in the second round of the draft.

For the fourth time in the last five years, the Dolphins will be without a first-round pick. That's barring a trade, of course.

Either way, that doesn't mean the Dolphins shouldn't be able to land a very good player with their first pick in the second round.

Much has been made of the team's first-round flops in recent years, with the list including the likes of John Avery and Yatil Green.

But the flip side is the Dolphins have come up with some very good players in the second round in the past few years.

The list includes WR Chris Chambers (2001), OT Todd Wade (2000), FB Rob Konrad (1999), CB Patrick Surtain (1998) and CB Sam Madison (1997).

You don't think the Dolphins wouldn't love landing somebody like that this year?

Yes, it would be much nicer if the Dolphins had a first-round pick and much easier to come up with a good pick, but the Dolphins' track record in the second round certainly is cause for optimism as the weekend — and the draft — approaches.
