    We've done a pretty good job addressing needs but clearly have one more gaping hole. We could use Dorian Johnson but he's obviously not going to last until the fifth so we might have to make a move. We can afford to give up a 2018 4th round pick in a trade up if it means we secure a starting LG.

    Isiah Asiata, Nico Siragusa and the kid from D2 Kutztown University, Jordan Morgan all fit the bill.

    I really like Louisville TE Cole Hikutini with a fifth. Jake Butt's injury cost him a ton. He's worth a fifth too and we could afford to redshirt him. Jordan Leggett and Bucky Hodges also deserve consideration.

    Desmond King is an absolute steal at this point. He will go early tomorrow along with Dorian Johnson. Corn Elder a lot of people like and would really help fortify our defense.

    Who do you guys think we absolutely NEED at this point.

    Isaac Isiata and I still want Corn Elder even though we just selected a CB.

    Dorian Johnson, but considering we don't have a 4th round pick (and if we did it would probably be a lower one), we will probably have to trade up to get him.

    We need to find some PHYSICAL players!!! Getting a guy who is afraid to tackle like Tankersley is a joke!!!

    Corners are paid to cover, linebackers are paid to tackle. Get with it bruh

    ---------- Post added at 01:06 AM ---------- Previous post was at 01:05 AM ----------

    Boulware isn't even as good of a player as Scooby Wright, and Wright hasn't done anything in the NFL. As a UDFA I have no problem but I hope we don't waste a pick on somebody who has a very, very low ceiling

    People may not like him as much as me but I like Biegel and can't believe he hasn't been drafted.

    Dion Sanders was a huge joke. The guy wouldn't tackle anyone.

    For Miami to get into the top of the fourth round, we'd have to trade our three fifth round picks.

    Corn Elder
    Isaac Asiata
    Kyle Fuller

    If that's what our 5th round looks like I'll be happy. I also wouldn't be crying if we switched out Fuller for Orlosky.

    You are kidding right? You can not be seriously comparing Tankersley's ability to Sanders.

    Some jerks in chat have convinced me that we need Corn the Elder Wand

    Kazee
    and I'd take a flyer on Butt

    No, but the fact that CBs don't have to tackle to be good NFL corners....

    I'd love to see us land Jake Butt, however I think we may need to move into the 4th round.

    In the fifth.

    Aviante Collins at guard
    Tedric Thompson at FS
    Jake Butt or Jeremy Sprinkle at TE.

    At this point, I'm a fan of continuing like we've done so far in staying put and use our three 5th rd picks on 2 Guards and the best available FS.

    Here are some of my targets.

    TE: We need a developmental TE with size.
    Bucky Hodges (how is this guy still available?)
    Eric Saubert (good developmental TE with a high ceiling and the tools to become a complete TE)
    Jake Butt (good player in all phases of the game)

    OL: We blew it by skimping on OL in free agency, and the draft dictated defense, but we at least need a couple of prospects because our OL is not good enough along the interior, and if Pouncey isn't full health that means all 3 interior positions.
    Chase Roullier (he has the measurable to be a solid guard in a ZBS)
    Sean Harlow (great genes, solid player, not quite as quick as we'd like, but looks like he can develop into a decent starting guard)
    Cory Levin (small school prospect with good athletic traits)
    -----------Below this line the prospects are likely to be gone before we select------------------
    Isaac Asiata (highly doubt he is available in the 5th, but a nasty people mover)
    Nico Siragusa (doubt he is available in the 5th, but a good athletic prospect)
    Jordan Morgan (small school prospect with good tools)

    CB: We played nickel 73% of the time or something last year (cannot recall the exact figure), so that means we're not a 43 team or a 34 team, but really a 425 team with 2 boundary CB's, 1 SS, and 2 other combo safeties/nickels ... and we don't have enough of those guys to cover the middle of the field.
    William Likely (yes, he's short, we get it, but this kid is dynamite along the lines of a young Grimes without the baggage and how can anyone pass that up in the 5th round? Ultimate slot corner vs. the Edelman's of the league)
    Corn Elder (good slot, but cannot keep up with the Edelman type ultra-quick slot receivers)

    S: Great safety draft, and with Reshad Jones and McDonald we have 2 good SS's ... and still have no FS. I realize the Dolphins prefer to play combo safeties, let's be honest, we NEED a FS, and this draft still has some excellent ones available.
    Eddie Jackson (Alabama stud was injured, but still kind of amazing he's still available. FS traits and untapped potential, this kid could be incredible)
    Kai Nacua (yes he got into a fight, character flags, but look at his production, the kid had like 7 INT's last year and holds some record for the most INT's, and when you watch him, he is a very instinctive FS who can be very good with very good athletic traits ... if you can get him to buy in. I'd take a chance on greatness ... would you? Will the Dolphins?)
    David Jones (small school kid with decent tools and good size who can play single high eventually)
    Xavier Woods (good small school prospect with a little of everything. Not the finished article)
    Weston Steelhammer (OK, I admit it, we don't need him, he's on this list because of the name. But seriously, how cool would it be to have a safety named Steelhammer? :D)

    DL: Not sure we're going to take another DL, but if we do it will likely be a DT type ... still, there is talent available that I feel is worth considering regardless of position
    Caleb Brantley (almost assuredly gone before the 5th, but a good prospect)
    DJ Jones (NT prospect who would give us some flexibility next to Suh)
    Deatrich Wise (DE type who has some athletic ability but has been an underachiever ... potential is there though)
    Ejuan Price (Elvis Dumervil type of pass rusher. Niche kid, but he can have productivity in this league and will likely outplay his draft status)

    LB: We probably will shy away from another LB, but the beauty of having three 5th rounders is that we can take BPA ... and there is definitely still talent on the board going into day three
    Carl Lawson (pass rushing DE/OLB in the mold of Charles Harris ... but someone will get a real gem on day 3)
    Anthony Walker (yes, stunning that he is still available)
    Connor Harris (love this kid, he is an undersized, small school prospect. Yes he played at Lindenwood, no I don't know where that is, yes he is small ... but don't sleep on this kid, he is a stud LB who will start in the NFL. Hitter, fast, great instincts, leader, and has always been one of my underrated sleepers)
    -------------------Below this line these guys are much lower end prospects but still have a legitimate shot to become a starter----------------------------------------------
    Dylan Cole (good instinctive LB with enough athletic ability to make a roster and possibly start. He can lay the wood and has a great LB mentality. His floor is as a stud special teamer)
    Matt Milano (Miami area kid with a ton of straight line speed and hitting ability ... but not great laterally and is a bit of a tweener between WILL and SS. No ball skills. Project, but an intriguing one)
    Vince Biegel (what is this kid? He has some size and athletic ability with some pass rush skills, but might not be good enough to be a starting pass rusher. He has heart and leadership with good run stuffing skills for interior LB, but can't cover well and isn't as much of an instinctive fit. All in all, he is going to feel like a conversion kid wherever he plays, but he has tools and the right attitude, so he may be worth a flyer)
    Ben Boulware (great production, good athletics, but at the end of the day many people aren't convinced he is or will be a good player. I list him because he really is one of those kids the scouts and I cannot quite figure out. Could he defy the odds? Maybe ... but I wish I knew that answer)
    Ben Gedeon (he's the other guy in the same boat with Ben Boulware ... I'm just not sure about him)
    Tanner Vallejo (can he make the jump? Decent prospect)
    Calvin Munson (decent tools and an intriguing prospect)

    I'm hoping we get a TE, FS, and 2 OL prospects from the remainder of the draft. The talent at TE and FS is too good to ignore, and while we may have missed the boat on OL, I'd still like to try.

    My hope is that we can get a draft like this: 5th: OL Chase Roullier, 5th: CB William Likely, 5th: TE Eric Saubert, 7th: FS Kai Nacua. Those guys have a good chance of being available, and would fit us well.
