Former Tennessee OT Ja'Wuan James was named by two of five writers as the draft's biggest reach.
"The former Tennessee standout was taken in the middle of the first round despite playing right tackle extensively as a collegian," wrote Bucky Brooks. "Although the seismic shift of the NFL into a passing league makes it necessary to have a pair of quality offensive tackles in the lineup, the draft value of a right tackle doesn't mesh with where James was selected." Miami desperately needed offensive line reinforcement, but many analysts ranked several offensive lineman available at No. 19 over James. "I was shocked when it happened and I remain shocked more than two weeks later," wrote Mike Huguenin. "I don't think the guy was one of the top eight offensive tackles and am flabbergasted Miami felt the need to take him in the first round. He's a right tackle who can struggle when blocking for the run. What am I missing?" Tue, May 27, 2014 09:13:00 PM
