DAVIE, Fla. (AP) The Miami Dolphins likely will target help for their aging defense on the second day of the NFL draft.

The Dolphins need help at cornerback and linebacker, but barring a trade, they'll have only one pick Friday - in the second round. They traded their third-round choice to New Orleans in a deal that brought receiver Kenny Stills to Miami.

Louisville receiver DeVante Parker was the Dolphins' choice with the 14th overall pick Thursday. He tied the Louisville record for career touchdown receptions with 33, and had 10 100-yard games.

Parker's availability fit neatly with the Dolphins' biggest need as they completed the revamping of their cast of wideouts for Ryan Tannehill. The Dolphins decided against trading down even though they have only two of the first 113 picks.
