Quarterback

The Dolphins have invested a first-round pick and 32 starts into Ryan Tannehill (left), who played well in 2013, but struggled with his consistency, and continues to have play speed issues. Tannehill, who threw for 3,913 yards and 24 touchdowns, and produced a 81.7 passer rating last season, will be learning a new offense from the coach who helped one of his peers, Nick Foles, become the NFL's top rated passers last season. But Tannehill hasn't had competition for the starting spot since David Garrard suffered a knee injury on the eve of the 2012 exhibition opener. This might be the right time to give him some. Adding a young arm like Eastern Illinois' Jimmy Garoppolo, Alabama's A.J. McCarron (right), Georgia's Aaron Murray, Clemson's Tajh Boyd and San Jose State's David Fales would provide the Dolphins a contingency plan at the game's most important position.
