I'll be taking a brief hiatus from my usual schedule here at B/R. I'll still be contributing pieces on free agency and the draft, but if you want to hear/discuss my thoughts on all things Dolphins more frequently, then follow me on Twitter @Scott_Altman.

Thank you all for your continued support.
Hello, Bleacher Report.

I'm currently a student in Boston University's College of Communication. I joined Bleacher Report in June of 2010, and have since become a Miami Dolphins featured columnist and community leader.

Four months prior to the 2011 NFL Draft, I predicted that the Dolphins would draft Mike Pouncey, Clyde Gates and Pat Devlin. Miami drafted Pouncey and Gates and signed Devlin as an undrafted free agent. (Link: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/602617-nfl-2011-mock-draft-projecting-the-miami-dolphins-picks-before-the-combine)

I also correctly predicted that the Dolphins would finish 6-10 in 2011. (Link: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/807046-miami-dolphins-2011-predictions-outcomes-for-all-16-regular-season-games)

    You should really do an article on The odds of Miami's first round in the draft. I enjoy reading your articles. Keep it going. From a mexican die-hard dolphin fan.

    Tannehill threw for 16 INT's last year. He would have thrown for over 20 had he played 16 games. Let me tell you why drafting a guard will put Miami over the top.

    1. Miami was 30th in the league in QB hits last year.
    2. They were third in the league in Sacks allowed.
    3. As much as people want to make a case for QB, Matt Moore was pretty good last year. He had a QB rating of 87.5. That's good for 12th in the league. He was actually ahead of guys like:

    Jay Cutler, Michael Vick, Cam Newton, Flacco, Palmer, Dalton, Fitzpatrick.

    He did this while still getting sacked at an alarming rate. Think of what he could do in a quick pass west coast offense with an offensive line that can protect him. DeCastro is the only player at 8 that one can say with confidence will be a perenial pro bowl player. They are comparing this guy to Steve Hutchinson. In other words, he's a once in a decade type player. He would single handedly improve our running game. With one pick Miami will drastically improve their rushing and passing game. We'll have the best three headed monster in the league. Long, DeCastro, and Pouncey. Image that left side.

    Philbin has already commented on Miami's need on the offensive line. Look for Miami to land either the All Pro guard DeCastro or the solid Reiff with the 8th overall pick.

    1. DeCastro
    2. Nick Perry
    3. Harrison Smith (We have to get a safety. Smith is projected to be the best safety when it comes to covering TE's. (Gronk, Hernandez, Keller, TD Chandler)
    3. Mohamed Sanu or Quick
    4. Best Available (there is always someone who falls to the 4th)
    5. Brock Oswieler (6'6 242 cannon arm)
    6. best available
    7. best available

    Love the Mighty Ducks reference in favorite coaches. Although I have to nitpick just a little bit, Bombay did make some boneheaded decisions that thankfully didn't come back to haunt them (ie, getting Banks halfway through the year almost disrupted the team's chemistry in part one.)

    I don't think anyone has ever noticed how you picked Cal Naughton Jr. in your short list, just wanted to let you know someone got the joke, which by the way is pretty damn funny
