Dumbest argument I've ever seen on this forum full of dumbass arguments LMFAO
CJ Anderson may be cut from Denver..I'm willing to bet a lot of money he's going to end up in Miami..He's Damian Williams but better at everything Damian Williams does..
depth at RB would be good in late rounds. Would not mind having a big, bruising RB to help get short yardage and wear down D over the course of the game. Grey at FB was intriguing as a short yardage runner.
Rashad Penny and Royce Freeman are good fits. Potentially with any of the picks in the 3rd and 4th rounds.
I understand the concern about Tunsil and , for that matter, Parker but I would give 90% of last season a mulligan for all the factors that made it such a forgettable season. I think Tannehill is going to bounce back in a big way and that means great numbers again for Stills and Parker. If the team wants to help Tunsil, the running game and probably save Tannehill from getting reinjured, draft Q. Nelson. I don't think the Cowboys have regretted taking Z. Martin, plug and Pro Bowl player. Nelson is a similar player, some scouts have him ahead of where Martin was at this stage.
exactly the type of back to compliment Drake. Give me a cheap older vet as long as he is someone who can pound the ball when needed.
Yes a backup running back is a must, as there are no other options on the team currently and Drake has a very long history of being injured.
Williams is not a good option
My answer for anyone suggesting that Gase using anything more than the very very low 4th we got for Jay Ajayi from Philly is BS, Gase traded for that future back now take your medicine like a big boy and live with it.
I happen to agree with you, his Durability is something that concerns me as well.
this team needs a dynamic qb, rb and wr. you want linemen, go a
how come you and I are the only ones that see that? it isn't a backup RB, it's a back that would be part of a two headed monster. doesn't matter who starts
I don't think people are saying that we don't need another RB. We're saying we don't need to draft one at 42
and how have we been on 1st round picks on needs last few years?
Good year to be looking at running back. There are at least 12 decent backs that could be drafted in the first 3 or 4 rounds that would look good in Miami. I like Royce Freeman as a tandem back with Drake. My preference is to add Carlos Hyde in free agency at a fair price if possible. He's had a decent career, but nothing that screams big contract. I do think he could be a very good back over the next few seasons if he's on the right team. I would draft Mark Walton as my 3rd down back and then try to add someone like Jarvion Franklin in the 7th round or as an udfa. If you miss on Walton, two other 3rd down back types that you can add very late are Nic Wilson from Arizona and Mike Weber from Ohio State.
In watching the U of Wash/Penn St bowl game, I liked what I saw from the Huskies' Myles Gaskin as a later pick.

Not good but what does that have to do with taking a RB early? You're saying yourself that we "need" a RB but you're saying that we shouldn't go for need. Hey I'm all for taking the best player on the board to a point. Would you take a SS at 11 when we already have TJM and Jones? You have to look at it from different angles. It's not always black and white
I agree 100% with what you're getting at here, but I still fear that this coaching staff and FO actually feel this way.
Gaskin is 5-9 and less than 200 pounds and doesn't have much speed either. I have serious doubts about his NFL prospects. He plays hard and has a lot of heart. Feel the same was for Lindsey out of Colorado. Usually if you're small you make up for with speed and I'm not sure Gaskin or Lindsey can do that at the NFL level.
I don't trust our FO for anything they do
Coach Gase spent time training CJ Anderson about his offense, so I would not be surprised if he was added. Coach Gase wants multiple capabable all around backs that can block, catch passes, with good enough vision, and the ability to read the hole. He needs two or three like all teams do. The only difference is that he probably is not interested in a bruising back, and I agree with him given the system he runs.
I wouldn’t touch Nick Chubb before round 5...I wouldn’t let Sony Michel get past my second round pick
This team needs a LB, FS, DE, and G.
If we can't cover a tight end, then we will continue to get picked apart by the good teams in the league. My first priority would go to drafting LBs that can make plays and then a DE.
I think Gase likes Running backs that are all-purpose and can
bring something in the receiving game.
in 9 seasons Blount is averaging 6 receptions a year
I don't think Gase would be interested in a one dimensional back
Someone like Jerick McKinnon or don't be surprised if Damien Williams gets re-signed
Gase seemed to really like him
Parker, Harris and Tunsil. Three reasons this team is mediocre. Not getting enough out of your 1st rd picks is a major issue
I agree and I think that's part of the reason why Gase traded Ajayi. He was not the receiver type of back that he wanted out there. I don't expect us to get a different type of back....I expect a similar type of back to Drake because Gase wants to be able to call all the plays with all his RB's
I agree but you need to add James to that list. He's not exactly a play maker and has missed half the season twice in 4 years
yep forgot about him. he's gone anyway
The funny part about Ajayi was the #1 running back in college
in receptions and yards receiving...I thought what a dual threat
we were going to have...I couldn't have been more wrong
Funny you said that because I thought the same thing. I was like wow, I hope we draft this guy because he had like 500 yards receiving his last year in college? Then with us he was dropping every other pass
don't beat yourself up. Just like the real world in the work place, he wasn't a good fit

this were Ajayi's stats in college.....50 catches for 535 in his senior year then he couldn't catch a cold when he played for us
well maybe Miami saw something 31 other teams passed on. And that something turned out to be nothing
Nick Chubb or Sony Michel both from the Georgia Bulldogs would be excellent additions to the Dolphins. Don't spend big $ on a free agent RB - quality and value is there in the Draft.
you think one drops to rd 2?
Fixed it for you
I would have to agree...
Come on man you can say that about Parker maybe even Tunsil but give Harris some time. Chris Doleman has 150 career sacks he had 0.5 and 3 sacks his 1st 2 years. Michael Strahan had 5.5 sacks his 1st 2 years.
how much time? these are first round picks. look at the Saints getting production from their picks this year.
As much time as Doleman and Strahan got? Their teams didn't give up on them after 2 subpar years and they reaped the benefits of 150 and a 141 sack career. At least say at least 3 years...thats how long it took 2 of the greatest pass rushers in NFL history.
The Miami Herald believes the Dolphins could move on from RT Ja'Wuan James this offseason.
The 2014 first-rounder is under contract for $9 million under his fifth-year team option, which is guaranteed for injury only. James spent the second half of the season on injured reserve with a groin issue but should be able to pass a physical by the start of the new league year. James was having a solid year before going down and was also effective in 2016. Perhaps the Dolphins will try to work out a multi-year extension that lowers James' cap number.
