For the first time in years, the Dolphins will not have to answer quarterback questions during the 2013 offseason. Unless people ask how good Ryan Tannehill can be in year two?
Instead, other positions will be widely speculated about on both sides of the football for the Miami Dolphins. Let's look at a variety of positions the Dolphins will have to address as they begin the process of compiling players that will make up the 2013 Miami Dolphins.
1. Wide Receiver- Most football minds would and have agreed that the Dolphins need a #1 receiver and like yesterday. Three players have been thrown into the discussion of who Miami is targeting through Free agency.
Mike Wallace, Dwayne Bowe, and Greg Jennings top the wish list for GM Jeff Ireland during the 2013 free agency. With talks of the Kansas City Chiefs possibly putting the franchise tag on Bowe, Wallace and Jennings seem like the front-runners to land the top receiver gig in South Beach.
Greg Jennings has played under Dolphins' Coach Joe Philbin and is familiar with his system. That alone leads me to believe that Greg Jennings will be the most likely choice for Miami.
If Ireland can reel in Jennings, Miami will have a formidable wide receiver crew with Brian Hartline coming off a career season while Bess continues to be one of the best slot receivers, year in and year out. Miami and the brass will have to lock Hartline up with a contract though as he is a free agent.
2. Cornerback- The definite low spot for Miami's 2012 season was undoubtedly the play, or lack there of, from their secondary. Richard Marshall went down early in the season with a back injury as Nolan Carroll and others tried to step in for him.
They tried, but ultimately they failed horribly to stop the pass as almost every opponent racked up huge yards through the air. Heck, Andrew Luck set a rookie record against Miami for passing yards in a game.
So to nobody's surprise, Jeff Ireland and Joe Philbin will positively be looking for a corner in the draft or in free agency. They might be looking for two corners if Sean Smith isn't brought back for 2013.
Dee Milliner would be the most logical choice if the Dolphins chose to get their CB in the draft. Milliner who is fresh off a national championship run with the University of Alabama, is the highest touted corner for the 2013 draft.
