DAVIE, Fla. – Searching for a keeper at quarterback, the Miami Dolphins have tried Fiedler and Feeley. They've tried Green, Lemon and Sage. They've even tried two Chads.
But it has been 28 years since they've tried taking a QB in the first round of the NFL draft.
The Dolphins might do it Thursday. Then again, they might use the No. 15 pick on a running back, an offensive lineman or even a defensive player.
The decision depends on what the teams drafting ahead of Miami do, but when the Dolphins' turn comes, several promising quarterbacks are certain to remain on the board. The list could include Ryan Mallett of Arkansas, Jake Locker of Washington, Christian Ponder of Florida State and Colin Kaepernick of Nevada.
