So reading all these posts and I don't understand why everyone wants a WR in the 1st rd, or a TE in the 2nd or 3rd, or a RB in the 3rd or 4th. We have invested a ton of $$ in our current wrs. We have a bunch of underachieving TE's... all young though. And we just signed Moreno, along with Miller, Thomas, Gillisee, Thigpen.
The thing to do is to invest heavily on the O-Line. When the line is giving the QB time, opening running lanes, everyone looks good, plays better, and best of all, wins games. My ideal draft and the way I would approach these positions would give us the best possible chance to win...... I hope.... lol.
Lewan is my dream pick at number 1 but he might not be there, so go for mosley. I really think Mosley will be there, but if hes not go hard at trading down. Or draft a OG as last resort.
If we don't get a MLB in the 1st rd, go get BORLAND from Wisconsin in the 3rd. Dependant on number 1, if we get lewan go for a OG, if not a RT no later than RD 2 should be targeted. All in all double down on lineman in the 1st 4rds.
Drafting a TE or Rb in the first 5 rds is a wasted pick. example given... gillesee and dion sims last yr, and egnew the yr before. What the hell have they done for us in the past 2yrs? If we draft a RB or WR they shouldn't come before rd 6. Why, you ask.... cause we don't need them. And im still a big believer in Lamar Miller.
Now if McCarron or Murray is still there in the 4th rd, I really think we need one of them. I'm still not a believer in Tannehill. I was livid when we drafted him so high, and then seeing the wole draft room high fiving each other was like.... WTF..... lol... we really thought he wasn't gonna be there at number 8?? We definitely could have gotten him in the 2nd or 3rd rd that yr.
Moving Dion Jordan to SLB should be considered. Him not playing is a wasted 2nd rd pick, wheeler and Ellerbe need to be 2nd stringers. Or tell COYLE start playing a multiple hybrid defensive front. We have a lot of athletic D-Lineman, so playing some 3-4 or 4-3 should be to our advantage. Get the best guys on the field!!
Cut Matt Moore
So all in all I am phin-natic... I literally think of these scenarios and it bothers me to see my team lose. These are my ideas in a nutshell
Although.... does anyone from the Dolphins HQ ever read these?
