    Here's a little question for the board:

    IF YOU WERE SPEILMAN/WANNSTEDT AND MIAMI HAD THE #1 PICK IN THE 2002 NFL DRAFT, WHO WOULD YOU SELECT??

    Obviously, I would try and trade down first. But no matter what happens, BRYANT MCKINNIE would be my target.

    I still go with Carr or Harrington. Either could step in say in 2 or 3 years and play QB for your team for the next 15-20! That is tough to pass up.

    If Miami had the #1 pick I would consider 4 players.....Carr, Harrington, Peppers, McKinnie. And in the end I would probably take the better of the two QB's.

    I trade the #1 pick for Dallas' 1st/2nd rounders as they really want Jammer and that would give it to them cheaply enough that they would automatically pull the trigger and then pick S Roy Williams.

    McKinnie......no doubt about it.
    Save the QB pick until next year.

    Carr like the Texans - possibly the only franchise QB who can throw deep

    I would try to trade down for a latter first round pick and get an extra first or second pick for next year's draft to get a QB, but if that dosen't happen. I would go for Julius Peppers. Jason Taylor would be very thankful :D

    I would take Julius Peppers and cut DG. Then, sign Blake with the add'l money as well as Cris Carter and a vet. DE. But, I would try and trade down first and then pick up McKinnie if he is around.

    If we take McKinnie with the 1st pick, we would`nt have to worry whether any future QB is mobile or not (at least for the next 15 yrs).

    Definately McKinnie!

    I would trade down to the fourth or sixth slot (Maybe make a trade with the Bills - Get Reuben Brown and their first pick for the overall first, or with the Cowboys - Get Larry Allen and their first pick for the overall first, or GET THIS ONE FOR A TRADE - Trade the first pick in the draft to the Vikes for Randy Moss and a third round pick in 2003). If I made the trade with the Bills or Cowboys, I would then choose one of these two guys:

    Bryant McKinnie
    Julius Peppers


    If they were both gone, I would drop back a couple more picks and choose one of the top DTs or Roy Williams. Or I might even trade the pick for a 2003 first and second round pick, along with a third round pick in 2004 (This would give me ammo to move up in the 2003 draft to pick one of the top QBs in next year's lottery).

    If I chose one of the top DTs, I would then trade DG for a couple of picks.

    Some great scenarios there Blitz, but I doubt we`de get a couple picks for DG considering his bad back.

    DTs who are potential pro bowlers are a rarity. I bet someone would give up a couple of third round picks for Gardener.

    I guess we'll never know.

    Wow. Lots of different responses. I had expected McKinnie in a a landslide. So far we've got:

    4 McKinnie
    3 Peppers
    3 for either of the QBs
    1 Roy Williams
    (Blitz, I put you down for McKinnie....since he was the first guy you listed. Sorry to limit you like that. ;) )


    Honestly, I only considered McKinnie, Peppers, and Roy Williams. It was all about "duo's".

    I too imagined a Peppers/Taylor duo. I also imagined a McKinnie/Wade combo. And finally, a Marion-Freeman/Williams tag team. And as awesome as they all looked, I had to go with McKinnie simply because we have no other options at LT. We already have Gardener and Freeman or Marion at the other positions. So we'd still be in good shape there.

    I never once thought about the QBs. IMO, neither one of them is superstar quality. I think Carr is like Tim Couch, but a little better. Couch went #1, but McNabb, Culpepper, and Brooks are better and came from the same draft. And Carr won't be the superstar that Mike Vick will be.

    Bryant McKinnie...If he has half the career that Richmond Webb did...That would help Fiedler get to a pro bowl. :D

    Your right, Carr won't be the superstar Vick will be. Carr will be better than Vick!

    No OT helps a QB get into the pro bowl.

    If a QB has confidence that his blind side is protected, his timing and decision making will be MUCH closer to perfection...........No?

    I only picked Roy Williams because when you factor out teams needs and just go with the best player that is obviously Roy Williams. Plus I looked at it this way. If we had the #1 pick then we don't resign Brock Marion and we take Roy Williams to replace him with Freeman at the other safety spot. We then use that money we signed Brock with and sign one of the initial wave of DE's who signed early on to replace Bromell with. Then with that 2nd rounder we picked up we take an OL.

    I would take McKinnie, with Peppers being the second option.

    Julius Peppers

    Imagine how great our pass D would be. Sam/Pat/Jamar at CB, Freeman/Marion at S, and JT/Peppers at DE.

    Peppers is the best player in the draft, but at this point we could really use a dominant OT. I wish we had the number 1 pick.

    Thanks for wrapping that one up for me Capt. Though I was pretty sure that would need no explanation. :D

    I like your thinking Van. Certainly would be an imposing D. Freeman would be at home at his true FS spot. And Williams at his SS spot. Then Bates would have ABSOLUTELY ZERO EXUSE NOT TO BRING THE SAFETY UP!!

    Carr is more mature than Vick, yes. But Jeezus, has there ever been a more talented QB in the NFL than Mike Vick?? Vick is stronger, faster, has a stronger, more accurate arm, better mechanics (still improving), and 4.25 footspeed. He's a freak of nature.

    Did you see the Houdini he pulled on Lorenzo Bromell on 4th and 15?? No way Carr picks that up. And Vick got 25 yards outta that one!! Or how about the one where he scrambled and unleashed a 60 yard laser shot to Jefferson at the 1?? Vick threw that one with both feet off the ground while in stride. No way Carr makes that throw. I watch that tape every week. And it still amazes me. David Carr isn't going to amaze me.

    Vick is gonna be unbelievable. Hell, he was unbelievable that day!! Just wait till he gets a few years under his belt. Right now, I'm very tempted to buy tickets to the Bucs game when they play the Falcons here in Tampa just to see Vick. The Phins are playing Monday night that week. So it's a done deal.

    I'm going to say that I would likely trade down to the #8 spot and take Roy Williams who is just an incredible playmaker and can change a game with his play. The deal would be for their 1st and 2nd this year, Derrick Alexander (if he could be signed to a more cap friendly contract) and a 3rd next year. With their #2 pick I'd look at taking the best available runstopping DE.

    If I couldn't trade out of the #1 spot I would stick with Peppers; the guy is amazing and will be a Bruce Smith type presence on the field.

    The only reason Carr is more mature than Vick is because the dumbass has a kid and is already married, so he doesn't have a choice than to be more mature than his peers. Who cares about either player.........they don't play for the Fins, and won't anytime soon!!

    Exactly. Michael Vick is doing the right thing. He's hitting all the strip clubs and getting all the strange booty he can. :D
