Best pick: Isaac Asiata, OG, Utah (Round 5, No. 164 overall)
The skinny: Big and physical, Asiata can lose patience and play out of
control at times, but he plays like a forklift who is able to move cargo
and open running lanes. The Dolphins found a future starter in the fifth
round.
 
Most questionable pick: Raekwon McMillan, LB, Ohio State (Round 2, No.
54 overall)
The skinny: Obviously, there are some who liked McMillan more than I did
when I studied him on tape, but I still think the second round is too
early for a linebacker who is more of a worker bee than playmaker.

5) Miami Dolphins
 
The window will be open for: Three years.
 
I wouldn't say the Dolphins have the best chance in the AFC East to make the Super Bowl in the 2017 season, though I do expect them to be viable contenders. This list is about looking further than one season down the road. Coach Adam Gase is good, and it's easy to see Miami taking a massive step forward soon, not unlike what the NFC champion Falcons did in their second season under Dan Quinn. Provided Ryan Tannehill recovers from his knee injury successfully, all signs are pointing up for the quarterback, who should continue improving after a season in which he completed a career-high 67.1 percent of his passes. Miami scored more points than it did in 2015 and allowed 15 fewer sacks, while first-round pick Laremy Tunsil proved to be a productive member of a beefed-up offensive line. Mostly, I'm betting on Gase.

I think that even those of us who have not been "human battering rams"
are at risk of this fate. The TV spots about Alzheimer's scare the shit
out of me. None us want to go down that road. At 76 I think that many
non-NFL players are suffering with serious mental issues. No cure in sight.
