05/12/2014 - A closer look at the Dolphins' picks: Round 1/19 - Ja'Wuan James, RT, 6-6, 311, Tennessee...The Dolphins needed a right tackle and James, a long-armed, athletic player, seems to fit the criteria for the Dolphins' zone blocking scheme. James will be expected to start immediately. He started 49 consecutive games at Tennessee, which suggests he's durable. The Dolphins had the option of trading down and still getting James later in the first round but they said he was the best player on their draft board, not just the best right tackle on their draft board. - The Sports Xchange
