    For the past 2 years I have told you ahead of time who are #1 picks have been and I will be doing that again this year pre-draft. I will at this time tell you that the fins feel that there is not a wr that will be considered at #12. This years crop of wr's is thin at the top compared to last year. there are some wr's we are targeting with our #2's. This years #1 pick will be a BPA pick. I am completely happy with that. As the draft nears I will tell you who our main target is. I would like to go 3 for 3.....

    Our GM wants a #1 wr before the draft.

    I agree IF we sign Wallace/Jennings/Bowe before the draft (which would obviously have to happen). I hope Ireland goes for the BPA but ONLY in regards to a WR, DE, or CB and nothing else.

    I could have predicted the player we were going to draft the last two years (and the media did as well) so saying you know who it is and then saying it's BPA is not news.

    Didnt you just announce we were trading for Fitzgerald? Are you now saying we can land him without using our first round pick?

    Or are you trying to hedge all your bets by predicting we will do...well, anything and everything that could possibly happen.

    My prediction....we snag Jennings before the draft and grab a DE in round one.

    Round two we pick up a WR and the BPA.

    We need to bolster the pass rush in the 1st round. Wake will be even better with another monster on the other side. A hellacious pass rush makes the defense better as a whole.
    When it comes to one players making an impact on this team...it is a pass rusher. The only way to beat the Patriots is to flatten Brady. It is the only way to stymie their offense.
    We need a DE with the 12th pick. I have not researched the name of the player yet, there will be time after the super bowl.

    The Dolphins should hire this Enduro kid to be the GM, I'm sure all of their problems would be solved in a very short period of time.

    My perfect offseason, would be to add Jennings, draft a Pass rusher or CB in the first, and take Tavon Austin from WV in the 2nd.

    He may be as gifted but he needs to start producing more by figuring out how to get to the QB more, cause some turnovers and not disappearing for long stretches. He was a ghost at times. I'll take Damontre Moore over Keke Mingo 10 times out of 10

    imo i know austin is fast ,BUT HE ISNT TALL AND DOSENT HAVE THE SIZE TO GO UP AND TAKE THE BALL DEEP DOWN FIELD AND PULL THE FOOTBALL IN ,AND IMO thats what we need is a fast TALL WR to go deep and go up and bring the football down and make the catch, we have enough SHORT WR that can run routes on the slant , but as i said we need help if Tanny just wants to throw it up downfield (deep) and bing the ball down , say like fritz T.0. exc. im just not sure where austin would fit into our system ,when we have some of the same players as a austin already on the team.

    We don't have enough short players who can take the slant TO THE HOUSE is the issue. There's certainly a spot for Austin on this offense. Nobodys suggesting we bring him in to be our #1.

    Trust me many will follow that path. And you can guarantee if we have an offseason like last year's games will definitely be blacked out this time.

    Man A & M was killing it with NFL prospects recently. Speaks well for Sherman's recruiting if not coaching. Tannehill, the two tackles, Moore, Swope, et al. Manziel going forward. Sherman's identification of talent skills at the college level looks pretty good. Hopefully it will translate to the '13 draft and we don't mis-read guys like Egnew over TY Hilton any more.

    For what it's worth, you're completely dismissing Olivier Vernon, who showed much promise

    It's early, but most mock drafts i've seen so far has us taking either the
    WR from Cal or TN.

    There's no questioning Mingo's explosiveness, athletic ability, motor,his closing speed is second to none but he doesn't seem to like contact very much. He relies more on speed than actual moves. He has a lot to work with, especially his closing burst that teams covet but he's a long way from figuring it out. I'm not as confident as you that NFL tackles will have such a hard time with him until he does refine his game. College tackles didn't.

    Look, i'm not trying to rag on Mingo because I know he's and extremely talented and raw player and has the potential to be a monster. I'm just not sure Miami can afford to swing and miss with him. I'd much rather have the production of Moore. Moore will be long gone so its a moot point.

    Mingo to me fits much better as an OLB in a 3-4 D. Miami is a primary 4-3 team now and i 'm not sure how he'll hold up at end

    It is a big need if Jake goes...there is no denying, there is no having it both ways, you cant say we cant pay jake and then let that postion slide. You end up with Colombo all over again.

    I will Join you Dude. We need Playmakers...I don't hear other teams talk about OL as much as we do? We have one of the most expensive OL in the League, yet we are average. Don't want 10 year Starters, which Long will not be. I want Guys who Change Games.

    Trade Down, get Alex Okafor DE from Texas or Manti Te'o. Tyler would be a safe pick for Tight End. And Please Kick Daniel Thomas and Egnew to the Curb man.

    its going to be BPA at a position of need. A position of need to me is...WR, TE, RT, G, FB, DE, CB, S, LB. You know FB is not being drafted early. All reports lend us to getting a WR in FA.

    Free agency will obviously affect how this plays out. WR will be looked at less IMO. Bigger needs are RT, G, CB if we dont get one in FA. DE is needed but we have some youngins who will look to make a step up this year IMO.

    With the players in this draft I see right now, CB, DE, RT, G, TE, S are the possibilities.

    And dispelling the notion that Eifert is not ranked that high therefore you dont take him is a misnomer IMO. If you see him as a powerful player who will change the way we score points it does not matter to me. He is an impact player. Same as Pouncey. You get a guy for ten years or more who you know will kick azz. That is the draft in the first round IMO. You dont take a guy who you think will be the one who everyone will keep there eye on in the offseason but not produce until week 15 and will take another year to get going. Alot of WR's are like that. Thats why they scare me. Only one WR right now who could make an instant impact and that is Bailey because he can do alot of the things we need a good WR to do right away and look smooth doing it.

    One wide receiver doesn't solve our offense's woes. We need at least two more receivers who can stretch the field, IMO. Rolling out Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, and Davone Bess would be nice, until Mike Wallace gets hurt. And then you're back to square one with teams playing red zone defense.

    This is not news. Nobody here thinks that Ireland has the balls to take a playmaker in the first.
