2011 NFL Mock Draft: Is Mark Ingram Still the Favorite for the Miami Dolphins?

The Dolphins Need The Two Big Offensive Positions In One Offseason

There has been a lot of talk in the last week Mark Ingram may drop because of perceived value and a potentially arthritic knee. Do not believe this misdirection, Ingram is a safer pick. No matter what else you hear, that is the logical argument put forward when it comes to why the Dolphins may draft Ingram in April.

The draft bust record of running backs in the first round is a lot better than the quarterbacks, so you will not see a quarterback drafted here. The Dolphins can try and get one of the several quarterbacks on the market in the NFL and take a running back here. This will hopefully solve the Dolphins' running game issues going into 2011.

The Dolphins do not have a second-round pick this year, so they have to get the first-round pick right. Ingram is a very safe pick who can be very productive for the Dolphins this year provided he is not misused by the Dolphins coaching staff.

New offensive coordinator Brian Daboll almost killed Peyton Hillis in Cleveland in 2010 with poor playcalling and a complete lack of imagination. The Dolphins front office hired Daboll anyway. Good luck to Dolphins fans in 2011.
