    I don't believe he'll make it to our pick so I can see Grier moving up to get him. The guy is a terrific human being who ears breaths and sleeps football. He comes from a humble family with his parents having immigrated from Nigeria. He is friends with Nnanmdi Asomugha and plays a lot like him. He would he the perfect long term match with Howard and Lippett. The Dolphins are said to be targeting players where football is their life and that's exactly who this kid is.

    I would be so disappointed with the first 2 rounds. We would pick up a DE and a CB which are both areas that we don't have huge holes in.

    While I will disagree with you that they aren't needs. They are also very deep positions in this draft.

    As for Awuzie. He's got the attitude Gase loves and would get Bobby McCain off the field

    We needed a young pass rusher at DE. Wake is 35 years old.

    We need a slot CB who is better than McCain.

    It doesn't have to be high draft picks, but they are definitely needs.

    I would think they would focus on LB/S/G before CB

    The Dolphins current roster with plenty of DE's and DB's who started last year. And the roster with a substandard FS we just signed, with an injury prone LB core with no depth, and the roster with absolute trash at the both Guard positions on the offensive line. If you think we are going to be able to pick up serviceable starters in the later rounds I have a Koa Misi to sell you.

    We better hope we get a LB in the 2nd and a capable G in the 3rd. The only way we save this draft is by getting one of the remaining serviceable LB's in the 2nd like Zach Cunnigham, if not welcome to your 2017 Swiss Cheese.

    Only in Finheaven do people think a team who had trouble stopping the run will be fixed with a DE who can't set the edge yet, and a slot CB, instead of a LB.

    Love him too. We'd have to trade up to get him though. I know the Dolphins are also very high on Tankersely who could be there at 54.

    I could definitely see that.

    54 and 97 will probably go to a combination of LB, S, CB and G.

    But at the same time, won't be surprised if we go with DT either.

    Methinks you are a tad misinformed - we actually do need a better nickel CB than Bobby McCain. Awuzie represents potentially a very big upgrade.

    I bet a lot of other people might too. We definitely need a nickel CB more than a Defensive Tackle, Linebacker, and Safety to stop the run. Nickel Corner is exactly what this team needs to right the wrongs on defense. A nickel corner will destroy LaGarrette Blount when he decides to run over everyone on this defense like he did last year. You people are so right. I have been blind.

    Let us make sure we draft a QB in the 3rd, and only draft positions that we already have starters, to improve the deficiencies on this team. If you can't stop the run with what you have, you simply get more of what you already have, it is basic economics, trust me.

    Just imagine Awuzie in the slot coming off the edge and blindsiding Tom Brady... dude is a sack machine for a DB. Tackling needs work but we don't tackle all that well anyway so he should fit right in. Even if he doesn't replace McCain he would probably make us deep enough to cut ties with Maxwell if they don't feel like he's worth keeping around at his salary.

    I'm guessing that if we don't go for Awuzie that we'll look at a S who's a natural center fielder type (not sure who that would be) or an OG who can play anywhere on the interior.

    Awuzie would be right towards the top of my wish list. Kid can play anywhere in the secondary and would be a plug-and-play nickel, giving depth on the boundary and at safety.

    That's my hope. He is a great corner and we are anything but set at cb. If the pass rush doesn't bring the QB down or tip the ball, our corners get burned. Teams throw on us at will. The pass rush will help them thing is bogus, you have to be able to contest balls as sacks only happen about twice a game on average. Our corners are horrid contenders.

    There's still some great safety's and lb's left and we have a chance at one of those. Awuzie will get scarfed right before our pic.

    Hayes and Timmons already upgraded our run defense.

    Sorry but that is not how it works. We have glaring deficiencies in the linebacking core and secondary that will be exploited if not fixed.

    So Harris is a bad pick b/c he can't set the edge, yet you want a guy who can't tackle b/c no one else on the team tackles well anyway. You can't make this **** up :lol:

    I don't envision Awuzie falling to us, but I would be thrilled to see it happen and we take him.

    There is so much to get excited about in round two. Lots of corners that certainly could be a way to go. I really like Witherspoon as one of the best cover guys in this draft. He needs to improve his run defense, though, and Miami really needs to find a physical guy.

    Love the safeties, but those guys are going to start going fast.

    I'm a self admitted idiot but I would like our pick to be Malik McDowell.

    Well, once again regardless of who we pick at 54 this board will go crazy both ways just like last night after the Harris pick. Seems like lots of people here lock themselfs into a player for whatever reason. Half the board will love the pick and the other half will hate it. It just never fails.....lol....and then people get mad at each other but think about it. Nobody on this board will make a selection on this draft but some people will get attacked because some people didn't get "their guy"

    Ozzy rules!!
