Dolphins Open Talks With Jake Long

And so it begins. Miami has started talking numbers with the supposed #1 pick in the draft, OT Jake Long. This article from Yahoo suggests that it may be a tactic to get another player or team to offer them a deal. In my opinion, they are trying to create a market for the #1 pick because no one wants it.

By looking like they have settled on a player, Miami hopes another team (say Atlanta at #2) could offer a nice deal for Miami to move down and take Long later, allowing the other team to take their pick of McFadden, Ryan, Gholston, Long, or Dorsey.
