Ahmad Bradshaw to South Beach?

In a future post, I'll be arguing against selecting Miami Dolphins rookie running back Daniel Thomas at 45 (via NFL.com).

In the news this week, it was reported that Giants super runner and free agent Ahmad Bradshaw would be interested in signing with the Dolphins. 

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller states that Bradshaw's high profile agent Drew Rosenhaus is from that area and pitched his client to South Beach. 

And what is not to like about the ocean, the warm climate, and a good organization like the Dolphins?

So what does this mean?

For Bradshaw, Miami would seem like a great fit--a team with a running emphasis that would feed him with lots of opportunities. 

For Thomas, it would cause his fantasy draft stock to fall; as 45 for a rookie that will likely be sharing carries and playing second-fiddle is just too high.

Even if the Dolphins pass on Bradshaw and sign another veteran to run the ball this season, grab a WR or another proven performer at 45 and select the Bills RB Fred Jackson and his 900+ rushing yards and 7 total touchdowns with your next pick.
