There have been plenty of reports over the past few weeks that the turmoil in South Beach has continued for the Miami Dolphins. In order to turn things around, new general manager Dennis Hickey is reportedly interested in adding some high character players in the upcoming NFL Draft.

“Dennis Hickey has a huge inclination to go for high character players. If a player is perceived to be a thug, gang-banger or have a drug issue that could knock them off Miami’s board. I could see Zack Martin being a fit,” said Charlie Campbell of WalterFootball.com.

Interestingly enough, we had Martin as the Dolphins choice in our updated mock draft, which you can view by clicking here.

Martin was a standout during Senior Bowl week in Mobile, Alabama and he may have solidified himself as a first-round pick. If his stock continues to rise, he may end up off the board by the time the Dolphins are on the clock, but for now he would be a great fit for the team thanks to his versatility along the line.

Who would you like to see the Dolphins target in the first-round of the 2014 NFL Draft? Sound off in the comments section below with your thoughts.

    Hopefully OT Lewen falls to us or trade up a few spots ahead of Chicago, Tenn..

  • Patrick

    Taylor Lewan no one else

    If TEs Ebron or Amaro fall to Miami, I would draft a TE. Miami can sign a LT in free agency, and maybe re-sign McKinney. If Miami has another TE to team with Clay, it would help, especially if he’s a red zone threat. If both are gone, I’d draft a tackle. But there are 6 tackles with a first round grade, I doubt all will be drafted in the first round, that’s a lot of tackles. Miami might be able to trade down to the late first, and still get either Morgan, or Kouandjio.
