With the NFL draft still a few days away, the Miami Dolphins have announced they'll select Michigan Offensive Tackle Jake Long.
This puts to end any speculation the Phins would rebuild with a defensive selection, a franchise quarterback, or trade the No. 1 pick.
With little to no talent found anywhere on the entire team, (they're best player can be seen on "Dancing with the Stars") the Dolphins will start to rebuild in the trenches where the game is often won.
This marks the second year in a row the Dolphins will pass on a possible franchise QB. We'll have to wait in see if the Big Tuna made the right judgement in talent.
It looks like for now, Miami will look for second year and unproven QB Jonathan Beck to lead the team. Yikes!
