Most intriguing pick: Fourth-round pick Joe Toledo joins an offensive line that already was crowded. Tells you the Dolphins saw something in him they really liked.
Most likely to succeed: That would be rather obvious given his first-round status, but Jason Allen really is a good football player. He will be the Dolphins' best defensive back by the middle of next season.
Unfinished business: The Dolphins didn't address their need for a run-plugging nose tackle, which Nick Saban would have liked to do with Haloti Ngata, or a backup running back or an outside linebacker.
Quick pick-by-pick analysis
Round 1, DB Jason Allen: The only question here was the hip, which the Dolphins, Allen and Allen's agent say is fine. The guy can play.
Round 3, WR Derek Hagan: Not a terribly impressive practice or workout player, which is why he fell to the third round. But he was highly productive in college and will see plenty of action as a rookie.
Round 4, T Joe Toledo: We have to admit to not being crazy about this pick because the Dolphins already have enough bodies on the O-line. Still, Toledo has some upside.
Round 7a, DT Fred Evans: Very good athlete from a small school, but he'll need to get a lot stronger or his NFL career will be very short.
Round 7b, DT Rodrique Wright: This is the stud pick. I watched him closely during the Rose Bowl because he was a high-profile guy and was totally unimpressed. But then again, if indeed he was playing with a torn rotator cuff -- as his agent has suggested -- that would explain it. This guy won't do much as a rookie, but in time he could become one of the biggest steals of this entire draft.
Round 7c, WR Devin Aromashodu: A lot better athlete than he is a receiver, Aromashodu could help out as a kickoff return, if nothing else.
Overall grade: It was difficult for the Dolphins to get all that much accomplished because they only had three picks before the seventh round, but you also have to factor in the second-round pick brought Daunte Culpepper. That makes this draft a success right away. Not counting it, you'd probably have to go with a C-plus.
