Dolphins may not pick QB in the first round

The Miami Dolphins probably won't address the quarterback position in the first round of this year's draft, barring a major trade up, says the Miami Herald.

The Dolphins will pick either eighth or ninth, depending upon a coin flip with the Carolina Panthers, and that choice probably won't be good enough to land Robert Griffin III, the Heisman winner from Baylor. It certainly won't get them Andrew Luck, who is expected to go first overall.

Since there may not be any other quarterbacks who are worthy of being taken that high, the Dolphins will likely address another spot in the first round, barring a trade up for Griffin or a trade down for more picks and perhaps a better value quarterback in the middle or late first-round.

This means that Matt Moore would appear to be safe as the starter for now in Miami, but there is the possibility that the Dolphins could gamble another pick later on on a quarterback, even though they have come up short with both John Beck and Chad Henne in recent years.
