We all want the same thing, for Miami to be a contender year in and year out. We all have our own opinions and ideas of what we would like to see happen. I thought I'd share mine. Long time fan, long time reader of this site, this is my first post. Hope you enjoy! Go Dolphins!
Obviously we'll resign some of our players and target others, but signing these three will be key:
#1 Matt Flynn -
I know A LOT of people aren't high on signing Flynn because he hasn't "proved" himself, he sucked in college, he was a 7th round pick, etc, etc, etc, but neither were quite a few people when Green Bay said later Favre in lieu of Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers sat behind Favre for 3 or 4 years before he took the reins. What a concept, he sat and developed behind a pro bowler and groomed/fine tuned his game. WOW, maybe, just maybe, Flynn did the same thing? Hmmm, we'll see because I believe Flynn, will be a Phin! He will already know the offense for the most part and that will provide a great start to OTA's and Training Camp.
#2 Ben Grubbs -
I think Nicks will be too expensive. This right here would give us one of the best OL's in the game!
How does this sound... Long, Grubbs, Pouncey, Incognito, Jerry/Murtha
#3 Reggie Nelson -
We need a ball hawk and he did great in Cincinnati last year, hopefully he comes over with our new DC. He will already know the playbook on D giving him a head start just like Flynn. Then I would move Jimmy Wilson to SS. He is only 10 lbs less then Yeremiah, but hits just as hard.
Okay so this might be farfetched and unlikely, but hey it could happen and be just the type of draft we need! Come on Ireland, grow some balls and make some moves! Ok here we go:
Round 1, pick 5 - Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
Round 1, pick 28 - Dwayne Allen, TE, Clemson
Miami Trades with Green Bay moving up 10 spots to get back into the first round. Green Bay gets our 2nd round pick this year and next year's 3rd.
Round 3 - Sean Spence, LB, Miami
If he falls this far this would be a great pick up! Imagine Dansby, Burnett, and Spence. I just got chills!
Round 4 - Kheeston Randall, DE/DT, Texas
A solid prospect that will provide depth along the DL.
Round 5 - Travis Benjamin, WR, Miami
Round 6 - Best available G
Round 7 - Best available DL
If all this was to happen, what do you think of this starting lineup?
WR - Marshall
This is my first post, so if this should've been a fan shot I apologize. I read the articles and posts on this site daily and you'll do a great job. I get more up to date info on this site then I do from ESPN! Well, I hope you like what I came up with. In the end, we are all Madden GM's! :)
