2012 Draft + FA

Hi, this is my first post and I just wanted to give my opinion on what the Dolphins should do this offseason.

Free Agency:

Matt Flynn QB- Yes I know that "he only had two starts against sub-par defenses..." and that free agent QBs has not been our fancy. Despite all of this, he constantly looks for the receiver down the field, and is elusive and younger.

Cliff Avril DE- This guy has more sacks than any player on our D-Line in his career and he's only been in the league for four years. Adding him to a line that picked up speed towards the end of the year could give us a impressive pass rush. Just the thought of him and Wake on the field at the same time makes me wince.

Cortland Finnegan CB- Vontae Davis had a spectacular second half of the season, while Sean Smith played poorly opposite of him. Cortland and Vontae would give us the better CB tandem and possibly Sean Smith can move to S.

2012 NFL Draft

Scenario A and B


Round 1- Trade down with the Bengals for pick #17 and an extra 3rd(+). They get Richardson, we get an extra player(s). Pick #17 Whitney Mercilus, OLB, Illinois- Besides Wake, Starks, and Odrick we have no pass rush. I think he's flying under the radar as the best pass rusher in this draft.

Round 2 Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State- His off-field behavior is a possible redflag, but his play on the field makes you forget about that.

Round 3 Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford- Nice combination of size and speed; mismatch.

Extra 3rd Bacarri Rambo, SS, Georgia- Not another safety from Georgia (Reshad). Unlike Jones, this guy is a playmaker with 8 INT last year.

Round 4 Ryan Broyles, WR, Oklahoma- This guy has 300+ receptions, 131 in 2010, and over 4,000 yds receiving in his career at OU.

Round 5 Case Keenum, QB, Houston- All-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns in the 5th? Many claim him as the "product of the system." If given a chance, could be successful.

Round 6 Derek Wolfe, DT/DE, Cincinnati- The Big East Defensive Player of the Year with 21.5 TFL and 9.5 Sacks. Probably isn't going to last this long.

Round 7 Ryan Miller, OG, Colorado


1st 8-9: Courtney Upshaw, OLB, Alabama
2nd 40-41: Kevin Zeitler, OG Wisconsin
3rd 70-73: Michael Egnew, TE Missouri

4th: 102-104: Antonio Allen, S, South Carolina

5th: Ryan Steed, CB Furman/ or Case Keenum, QB Houston

6th: Jack Crawford, DE, Penn State

7th: Jerry Franklin, LB, Arkansas
