    What do you think?

    I would really like to see Orakpo (UT) or Laurinaitis (OSU) in the draft and its a long shot but Asomugha would be tremendous.

    Post your ultimate wishlist (top pick and top FA acquisition)

    Number one free agent acquisition would be Nnamdi Asomugha. The second one would be Bart Scott or Karlos Dansby. Other than that we should not sign anyone from free agency. I guess Albert Haynesworth would be awesome, but he would cost half our salary cap.

    Medical history is made as Dan Marino is fitted with (2) bionic knees and a cybornetic achilles tendon.He comes out of retirement,playing better than
    he did as a 27 year old.Hey,since it's a wish list.


    On a sad note...Ted Ginn tears a hammy trying to catch up to one of
    Danny's lasers.

    Just for the record...Gamble resigned with Panthers like 3 months ago. Roy Williams signed a long term deal when Dallas traded for him.

    Draft: 2a) SeanSmith CB/FS (Utah) 2b) Ron Brace NT (BC) 3)Adam Ulatowski RT (Texas) 4) Best ILB available

    I personally would like in order:

    1.) Sage Rosenfels
    2.) AJ Feeley
    3.) Leslie Sheppard
    4.) Jamar Fletcher
    5.) Eddie Moore

    **** Just kidding obviously ****

    I would love Jordan Gross, but I think we will approach this off season like last one and target mid-level fa's. I personally see us signing Bryant McFadden fomr the Steelers and possibly Bart Scott.

    I disagree entirely. I think looking to sign a player such as Julius Peppers, Albert Haynesworth, or Nnamdi Asomugha is completely the opposite way that this franchise is heading. Parcells philosoph is to create deoth of the entire 53-man roster through free agency while finding some solid starters and building your superstars through the draft. Shelling that much money out to one player will not help our team in the long run. I'd rather us take care of our players such as Yeremiah Bell, Andre Goodman, and Vernon Carey first. Then take the approach we did last year. Karlos Dansby and Jason Brown are the two guys I want to target. Both are impact players and you could get both of them for half of what you would bay for Asomugha, Haynesworth, or Peppers. If I were Jeff Ireland this is what I would do...

    Free Agency-
    *Andre Goodman-Cornerback
    *Vernon Carey-Right Tackle
    *Yeremiah Bell-Strong Safety
    *Jason Brown-Center
    *Karlos Dansby-Inside Linebacker
    *Jordan Black-Offensive Tackle

    Draft
    1-Larry English-Outside Linebacker-Northern Illinois
    2A: William Moore-Safety-Missouri
    2B: Ron Brace-Defensive Tackle-Boston College
    3: Brian Robiskie-Wide Receiver-Ohio State
    4: Keenan Lewis-Cornerback-Oregon State
    5: Otis Wiley-Safety-Michigan State
    7A: Jasper Brinkley-Inside Linebacker-South Carolina
    7B: Edwin Williams-Center-Maryland
    7C: Kaluka Maiava-Linebacker-USC

    I would release Ernest Wilford and Reggie Torbor to free an additional $4million in cap space. I would try to trade John Beck away for a pick.

    QB: Chad Pennington/Chad Henne
    RB: Ronnie Brown/Ricky Williams/Patrick Cobbs
    FB: Loushaka Polite
    TE: Anthony Fasano/ David Martin/ Joey Haynos
    WR: Brian Robiskie/ Davone Bess/ Brandon london
    WR: Ted Ginn Jr./ Greg Camarillo
    LT: Jake Long
    LG: Justin Smiley/Samson Satele
    C: Jason Brown/ Edwin Williams
    RG: Donald Thomas/Shawn Murphy/Andy Allemen
    RT: Vernon Carey/Jordan Black
    K: Dan Carpenter
    P: Brandon Fields
    DE: Vonnie Holliday/Phillip Merling
    DT: Jason Fergeson/Paul Soliai/ Ron Brace
    RE: Kendall Langford/Lionel Dotson
    OLB: Larry English/Matt Roth
    ILB: Akin Ayodele/ Kaluka Maiva
    ILB: Karlos Dansby/Jasper Brinkley
    OLB: Joey Porter/Charlie Anderson
    FS: William Moore/Otis Wiley
    SS: Yeremiah Bell/Brandon Tolver
    CB: Will Allen/Jason Allen
    CB: Andre Goodman/Keenan Lewis/Nate Jones

    Damn I am good

    Amen.
    This is probably the most logical analysis I have seen on the forums.
    Great work.

    Thanks man. Trust me I'd love to see Peppers ina Dolphins uniform but it's not practical. Another guy who bears watching is Chris Canty. he is a very good 3-4 Defensive End who Parcells drafted out of Virginia when he was with the Cowboys. they could cut Vonnie Holliday and save $3.5 mill and sign Canty. Giving us a rotation of Merling, Landford, and Canty. Damn!

    I owe a Hail Mary to the forum b/c I forgot Cameron Wake as an Outside Linebacker. Wake will defiantly be in the rotation and I expect good things from him. 8 Sacks

    I could definately see these things happening.
    The draft is an impossible thing to predict but you definately hit on the key positions of need, that I'm sure will be addressed. I would like to see those players in a Fins uniform, but you never know who is going where.

    The tackle market has sunk up pretty quick, I think Gross is resigned and the competant T's on off the board before we pick. I believe now resigning Carey is a priority.

    Also believe Crowder is not.

    I believe gaurd is also a priority because both of out starters are coming off major injuries.

    Canty is a Parcells boy, and I don't doubt a Bobby Carpenter sniffing to be completely out of the question.

    I just really like your analysis because you hit on the non big market players, and adressed the "non sexy" postions. That's how you build a franchise.

    Nice Analysis! But, We need OG help badly, Who knows whats Smileys Status is for the start of next season, and who knows if he can make it a full season healthy.

    Donald Thomas, while being great potention, we still dont know what we have in him.

    Shawn Murphy, couldnt even make the line with a depleted/injured OLine in front of him.

    The other gaurds we have honestly are just not that good. They are serviceable but just not good.

    Nice post. I would also add resigning Vonnie to a more cap friendly number. I think he counts for 5 mil of cap. :up:

    I agree. I'd be happy with that. I would also add Suggs.

    I'm guessing we don't sign any flashy big name in the F/A market, but perhaps trade (people or late picks) for a/some relatively unknown up and coming players. IF we even sniff at a big name F/A, it would have to be a spot that they know we can't draft anyone worthwhile this year. I'm guessing CB or FS, but I could be wrong.

    Dansby is awesome but he will require a huge contract also. He has been a beast for a few years and will want to get paid. And if William Moore is there in the 2nd round and we dont take him Im finished with MIA. Moore is prob my favorite player in the draft and I hope he slips. He is another Ed Reed. But great job. That would be a great lineup. And i mentioned Jason Brown too. He would be a great C for us.I think I would go with Barden in the 3rd or Brandon Gibson Im not high on Robiskie.

    Oh yeah and for a CB I like Dunta Robinson in FA. I think he is a great CB and would help us out alot. ANd if Moore is not there in the 2nd take Sean Smith from Utah

    I dont think depth at guard is the issue. Your backup guards are not going to be as good as your starters. Thats to be expected. We made the playoffs with Ike and Alleman starting at guard. I am confident with them as the backups.

    Jason Brown would be a terrific addition at center, though. That extra 20 pounds that he has on Samson will come in handy against Wilfork and Jenkins.
