General Manager Dennis Hickey clearly had a game plan when he went into the 2014 NFL Draft: get high-character players at positions of need who can come in and compete right away.

With five team captains and six small schoolers out of the Dolphins’ eight potential draft picks, Hickey was certainly successful in many ways. He also managed to make three good trades while adding a fifth-round pick and getting some good value on a few picks as well. (more…)
