No free agents are picked up other than JT
I know most of you dolphin fans' have fallen in love with the idea of picking up a nose tackle in the first round. There has also been much debate over the idea of drafting an OLB, WR, and yes even RB. I however have a suggestion that would help us improve much quicker. My personal opinion includes drafting a Free Safety in the first round. If Eric Berry is available I would snatch him up in a second. If he is not then I'd say Earl Thomas. So, let me shed some light on to why this is a much more sensible approach.
The first and main reason I believe a free safey is the right choice is well, look at the draft prospects available. In the top 100 draft picks' only five of whom' are free safeties. As far as DT go there are a plethora of 12. OLB also has a decent amount of 9. In the regard of WR, 11 are listed.
Yes, we all know nose tackle is a huge need. Free Safety at this point is however, much more critical. Not many are available and to recieve a valuable pick we would need to address this early. We can focus on that later and still have a good replacement that we can mold into a great player later. This way both positions can be addressed and we can still have a great player in FS and also have good, maybe even great NS.
OLB is also an important position to look at. Even though it needs to be addressed, we do still have Cameron Wake, Charlie Anderson, and Reggie Torbor. Wake isn't the best all around player, but let's face it the man can rush the quarterback. I also believe with coaching of Mike Nolan not just Wake, but the other players will also improve dramatically. These three linebackers will become pretty solid players. There also is an extremely great chance JT signs back to the Dolphins. He wants to be here and of course we want him. Alongside these OLB we can also draft an OLB in the 2nd or 3rd. This core of Linebackers would prove to be a solid force in the NFL.
Everybody also wants that number one reciever. Well, honestly we don't. We have a very good core of recievers as it stands right now. It has depth and versatility. Yes we can pick up one also pick a reciever later on. I know Bill Parcells has a talent for finding hidden gems in this catagory a.k.a Miles Austin. This reciever will be good and again have a great chance of being great. Together, our recievers will be tremendous and also keep growing as a unit.
First off I can not fathom why anyone would want us to draft C.J. Spiller first. Yes, he is a great player, but I do not think he can be a top 5 running back in the NFL. Ronnie Brown, if not in the top 5 is a top 10 RB. Alongside Ricky Williams and our very good offensive line, the running game has no problems. Ricky Williams is also a top 10 to 15 RB. Not only do we have these two players, we also have Lex Hilliard who I believe will develop to be a great 2nd RB to split time with the others. Lousaka is the man who picks up or 3rd and shorts and 4th and shorts.
I hope all of you see the point I am trying to get accross. This draft strategy is the easiest way we can be guaranteed to improve every one of these positions and improve the most this offseason. The NFL is now a passing League and as it stands we do not of a liable free safety in our roster. Our corners would have less responsibility and grow from having a top notch FS. Free Safety is the way to go.
