WATCH: Get to Know Miami's #1 Draft Pick
Posted May 9th, 2014 @ 8:19am

The Miami Dolphins filled a position of need in the first round of the NFL Draft last night, picking up Tennesee Offensive Tackle Ja'Wuan James with the 19th pick. 

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill was sacked a league high 58 times last season, behind an offensive line that lost two of its starters to a so-called "bullying scandal". 

Some say the pick was a "reach", but GM Dennis Hickey contends the team had been targeting James prior to the draft.

Miami has 6 more picks in the draft, which continues tonight with rounds 2 and 3.  Rounds 4 through 7 will take place on Saturday.
