NFL Draft Grades: Dolphins Make Biggest Splash In AFC East (Video)

The 2012 NFL Draft ended just two days ago, but we're already grading how every team did. The AFC East had four solid drafts -- nothing too shocking but no major head scratchers. The biggest story in this division is the Miami Dolphins taking Ryan Tannehill in Round 1 and Jonathan Martin in Round 2, which is a solid haul.

The New England Patriots traded up in the 1st round -- twice -- to select pass rushers. The Buffalo Bills hung onto the 10th pick in Round 1 and selected Stephon Gilmore, who some think will be the best cornerback in this draft. The New York Jets bypassed Melvin Ingram in Round 1, which was a bit of a surprise, and selected Quinton Coples.

If Tannehill works out, which is a big if, the Dolphins look like they had the best draft. Adding a quarterback to a team that already has a franchise left tackle in Jake Long, and then now has a future right tackle in Martin, is a good move. Tannehill has a good offensive line in front of him. He has promise.
