Matt Moore likely to be the Dolphins starter week 1

The Dolphins are more than likely going to draft a QB in this year's draft. However whether that be Tannehill or any other QB not named Luck or RG3 they probably will not start week 1 of the season. Moore did have a 87.1 QB rating and did finish the season last nine games with a 6-3 record. He proved that he could wins games last year when given the opportunity and has deserved the chance to at least start this season. Moore might not be the long term solution but for at least the first half of the season or the first year he could serve as the starter while the rookie QB sits and learns the game. I believe that Moore will beat out Garrard and will start day 1 and it may not be a bad thing when you think about it.

Brock Osweiler in Miami Right Now

Brock Osweiler tweeted roughly 2 hours ago that he "Just landed in Miami...excited about my visit with the Dolphins!". Osweiler is projected by many as a top 5 QB in this years class and is probably going to go anywhere in the 2nd or 3rd round. The one thing that stands out when you watch Osweiler play is his size, the guy is 6'7 which allows him to easily see over the line both defensive and offensive and find receivers easier over the middle on short crossing routes. However where he releases the ball is pretty low compared to how high it should be thrown but that shouldn't be that much of a concern because his height makes up for it. Osweiler will more than likely have to sit out a year as he is still pretty raw. The same could be said for Tannehill and if the Dolphins draft either of these two guys look for Matt Moore to be the starter day one. The only QB outside of the top two who can start day one in my opinion would be Brandon Weeden who will probably go in the 2nd round. Some say that if his age where lower he has the talent to be a top 15 pick.

I believe the Dolphins will ultimately end of getting on of the three in the draft. I think if they draft Tannehill they would then pick a DE in the 2nd round and then a Wr with one of not both of their 3rd round picks. If they choose either Weeden or Osweiler I think they will get either Melvin Ingram or Quinton Couples in the first, draft the QB in the 2nd and go after WR in the 3rd. The WR class is deep and they should be able to find quality players who could have instant impact in the 3rd round.
