why not...

With all the speculation about Brandon Albert joining the Dolphins, it shows how many different ways we actually can go.

Option #1

Send our first 2nd round pick to KC for Albert and sign him to a long term deal. Then trade back with Houston and get their first and second round pick. This solidifies our O-Line by providing Ryan Tannehill with the protection he needs, but it also get us back a second round pick and Houston can get a receiver they want without having to wait behind StL and MIN who each have two first round picks and will almost certainly will take a receiver.

Option #2

Stay put at 12. This could be dangerous because while their are good players most likely available, most will be a reach. No tackle worth the pick will be available and every corner is a reach except Dee Milliner who most likely won't be available. A pick I would be happy with is probably Tyler Eifert. He would be a really good red zone target, which the Phins lack. Drafting a corner or two in the second and third round and a pass rusher would make sense, but the O-Line has to be addressed.

Option #3

Trade up for Dee Milliner or Lane Johnson, and sign Eric Winston (only if we draft Milliner). This would allow the Dolphins to either have an OK line for a year or two or a great line for years to come, but then sacrifice the secondary. I do not think trading up is the way to go in this draft, especially with the talent in this draft and the needs the Dolphins have.

IMO I think option 1 is the best option, though we don't have to trade back with Houston, maybe Minnesota doesn't want to wait behind St. Louisfor a receiver, or Dallas really likes Kenny Vaccaro or Tavon Austin. We'll see, either way I can't wait for the season and draft day. Go Phins.
