The Miami Dolphins have a challenge before them heading into 2012. The AFC East is home to the AFC's Super Bowl representative, a Jets team that is still gunning for the playoffs, and a rapidly improving Bills team. The Dolphins' biggest addition in the 2012 NFL offseason? Ryan Tannehill.
Tannehill, Miami's first round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, isn't even a shoo-in to take the starting quarterback job from Day One. That's because the Fish have a few different options at QB, with Tannehill, David Garrard, and incumbent starter Matt Moore all still on the roster.
Whoever does win the job may be a bit disappointed by the talent around him. Reggie Bush will be looking to match his career year from 2011, but Brandon Marshall is in Chicago now and 34-year-old Chad Ochocinco isn't much of a replacement for him. Having a rookie like Lamar Miller, Michael Egnew, or Jeff Fuller (Tannehill's college teammate) step up in training camp would be a huge help.
