The fast pace continues thanks to the very logical pick by MiamiSteelerFan. Many thanks to him. Next up: the Jacksonville Jaguars, represented by DadeCountyJag. - Michael B. -
No surprise here, but with the 15th pick in the NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins select Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama.
For a few years now, the Dolphins have been stuck in mediocrity...a few plays away from winning 10 games while at the same time being a few plays away from losing 10 games. Coach Tony Sparano somehow survived the middle-school offseason (watching team officials flirt with Jim Harbaugh while he sat by himself). Knowing he's on a short leash, there is little choice but to take an instant impact player.
The Fins would love to draft a QB, but with Newton and Gabbert off the board, the 5'9", 215lb back will help fill the potential void created by the impending free agency of Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown. Although the comparisons to Emmitt Smith may be a tad generous, Ingram's ability to run between the tackles and catch passes out of the backfield should help the offense improve on its 30th place ranking in 2010.
