    Good to know they've settled on someone instead of playing games.

    Sources: Dolphins agree to deal with Long, will select OT No. 1 overall
    ESPN.com news services

    Jake LongThe Miami Dolphins have reached a contract agreement with Michigan offensive tackle Jake Long and will select him with the No. 1 overall pick in Saturday's draft, sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

    The announcement will come at a 1:45 p.m. ET news conference.


    Despite speculation that Dolphins vice president of football operations Bill Parcells really had planned to select Ohio State defensive end Vernon Gholston or Virginia defensive end Chris Long, sources told ESPN's Michael Smith that since the Dolphins opened negotiations with Jake Long they were talking to him exclusively.

    Long, a 6-foot-7, 313-pound senior who moved to left tackle in 2006 and started his final 26 games, was an All-America selection and Big Ten lineman of the year in each of his last two seasons.

    Offensive line is considered the biggest need for the Dolphins, who went 1-15 last year.
