Grading the 2010 draft: Dolphins

The AFC East blog continues its series this week on grading the 2010 draft classes.

Next we take a look at the Miami Dolphins.

2010 picks: DE Jared Odrick (first round), LB Koa Misi (second), G John Jerry (third), LB A.J. Edds (fourth), CB Nolan Carroll (fifth), S Reshad Jones (fifth), LB Chris McCoy (seventh), LB Austin Spitler (seventh)

Analysis: Miami didn’t have a star-studded draft class in 2010, but it was solid. The Dolphins got four starters out of this group with Odrick, Misi, Jerry and Jones. None of them are stars but all four contribute. Carroll also played a sizable role in Miami’s secondary last year, but that will probably change after the team made several additions at corner this offseason. Jones was the best value pick out of this group. He was taken in the fifth round and has the athleticism and potential to be one of the top safeties in the AFC. Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland gets a lot of heat in Miami. He didn't hit any home runs in this draft, but he hit a lot of doubles.

Walker’s grade: B-
