30. Miami Dolphins: A+

Pete Prisco: The captain of my Better-Than-Team. I think this pick is outstanding. He's a great press man guy. He tackled 10 times better than I expected from a track guy.

Fantasy impact

Dave Richard: Dolphins could have gone with a running back here, but I suppose they'll wait until Friday to get one. As it stands, cornerback Noah Igbinoghene isn't a bad choice. He's real fast and has room to develop into a quality cornerback, but I suspect he'll get targeted a ton when he's on the field this year. He's only played cornerback for two seasons. He's not going to be on the IDP radar anytime soon, and he doesn't help the Dolphins DST much.
