Miami Dolphins Are Drafting Everybody, According to the Experts

The NFL Draft is tonight. And all the experts and pundits and analysts have weighed in on what exactly the Miami Dolphins will do with their 12th overall pick (earned by the blood, sweat, and tears of yet another 7-9 finish).

And the consensus is... the Dolphins will be selecting everyone tonight.

Miami has 11 picks, including two in the second round (42nd and 54th), and a crapload of needs.

Here now are what all the top experts, including your very own draft expert here at New Times, are predicting for the Dolphins:

The Palm Beach Post:

Tyler Eifert, tight end, Notre Dame

Ben Volin writes:

Dolphins' offseason has been all about finding more playmakers for Ryan Tannehill. They continue by taking the draft's best tight end.

The Miami Herald:

D.J. Hayden, cornerback, Houston

Armando Salguero writes:

You don't have to worry about Hayden making plays because he did that in college. You don't have worry about how fast he runs because he ran a 4.3-second 40-yard dash at his pro day last month. You don't have to worry about Hayden dropping interceptions thrown in his hands like one of your past picks because, well, have you seen him play?

Hayden should be your pick, Jeff.
