Yes, it's too early for this to be truly significant, but Bill Parcells and the Miami Dolphins have begun negotiations with the agent for one of the top prospects in the draft. The surprise is that the prospect in question is not Chris Long, not Matt Ryan, not even Vernon Gholston- it's Michigan left tackle Jake Long. Parcells has a track record of favoring defense with his first round picks, and he passed up the chance to take both Orlando Pace and Jonathan Ogden, so there was some question as to how seriously he would consider Long. Should Long go first overall, he should probably send a nice flower arrangement to Joe Thomas.
