Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Illinois CB Vontae Davis is an absolute necessity in an AFC East Division that includes Tom Brady throwing to Randy Moss, Wes Welker and now Brandon Tate. Same goes for the Bills star-studded tandem of Terrell Owens and Lee Evans. Davis is physical, an absolute specimen, who is excellent in run support. The loss of veteran Andre' Goodman, along with Will Allen in the final year of his contract and not getting any younger, screamed for an upgrade at this position. A closer look at the Dolphins' picks: Round 1/25 -- Vontae Davis, CB, 5-11, 203, Illinois...The loss of Andre' Goodman along with the addition of Terrell Owens in a division that already has Randy Moss, Lee Evans and Wes Welker forced the Dolphins to address the cornerback position, especially with a physical one like Davis. - by The Sports Xchange
