With the moves the Dolphins have made in FA it looks like the most need positions are OLB, CB and NT. Should the Dolphins use either their first or second overall pick on Ron Brace?
You're absolutely right about those three areas being positions of critical need, and I'd throw WR in there as well.
As for Ron Brace, I'm a big fan of his and I'd love to see Miami take him in the Draft.
I think the first round, at 25, is reaching for him, so I think Miami would be wise to go in a different direction at that point, but he would be a great pick with either of the second round picks we have this year.
As a 3-4 nose tackle, I think Brace has the potential to be every bit as good as his teammate B.J. Raji.
Quality nose tackle prospects are hard to come by, and after Brace, the pickings are mighty slim in this draft. Jason Ferguson is on his last legs, and he already needs to be subbed out for a lot of plays. I'd like to see the team continue to develop Paul Soliai, but I think his ceiling is limited at this point. Brace has the potential to become a true force as a NT.
