    So I was just looking at some mocks, more to learn where guys are expected to be drafted as far as placement more than anything else, and I came across WalterFootball's mock, where they have Miami taking Eric Fisher in the first round. The rest of his picks for Miami are:
    RD 2: Sharrif Floyd DT, Florida
    RD 2: Stedman Bailey, WR West Virginia
    RD 3:Justin Gilbert, CB Oklahoma St
    RD 3: Arthur Brown, LB Kansas St.

    http://walterfootball.com/draft2013.php

    I would probably have a meltdown if this were Miami's haul with those 5 precious picks, but I am no expert or talent evaluator. I like Brown in the 3rd, other than that, I'm not so sure, and just for discussion I wondered what everyone else on here would think. I also think the first two picks are based on the assumption we don't re-sign Long and Starks. I'm betting we actually re-sign both.

    I would not be happy if we took an o-lineman with the 12th pick.

    fish might be more a power scheme fit...he's got feet like jake long in pass pro so might also be more a right tackle down the line...very smooth looking and fast athlete on the move...overpowers his level of comp which is low admittedly in the run game just moves guys out...terrific upper body strength...can get a little high in pass pro at times and lets guys get under his pad level a little bit even against low level comp which is something to watch but he also can recover and sit down well and lock out and keep guys at bay...

    if you get arthur brown in the 3rd round you should be stoked...don't see it happening...but if he got there i would be on it

    baileys the other nice pick...the other two i would do something different

    I'd be okay with picking a tackle in round one, if:

    1. He starts right away and is good.
    2. It finally fixes the damn O-Line.
    3. WR has already been addressed aggressively in free agency.

    Under those circumstances, my pitchfork isn't coming out.

    The problem is that I have very little confidence in this team to actually go out and sign a Wallace or Jennings.

    Tackle is a need if Long leaves. DT is not a need - bump Odrick inside where he belongs and draft a DE. Justin Gilbert is going back to school. Bailey and Brown are solid picks.

    We better not take a LT in the 1st round when we have Martin available to man the LT spot. Martin may not be the best but he is more than adequate. Then you can take a OT (i.e. Dallas Thomas, OT, Tennessee) in the later rounds to fill the RT spot.

    I hope we grab Keenan Allen in round 1.

    we will need to either draft or sign a starter in FA if we dont sign Jake. Martin is no sure thing at LT and needs to improve alot

    As much as the Dolphins need OL help, I don't see a reason to take one so high. Those spots can and should be filled later. We need an impact player in 1, like a pass rusher.

    If you switch out that first pick and change it to Keenen Allen, Dee Milner, Jon Banks, or a top pash rusher I'd be pretty happy.

    If we don't do anything major in free agency and that is our draft I will go ballistic, yes.

    There is NO way we don't go get someone with the 50 million we have. I'm pretty sure it's against the new CBA rules.

    Whether it's via FA or draft, we're bringing in at least 2 guards and a tackle, imo. We have 2 PBS guards and basically noone else. We have some backup at tackle but it isn't great. I could see them using #42 on OG J. Cooper. Not saying it's what I'd do or like.

    At tackle, Reid Fragel of Ohio St is who I'd like us to take, in about the 4th or 5th.

    Like I said before, if Ireland picks another OL in the first rd there maybe some people that try to bomb his house.

    I wouldn't jump off a bridge but I'd push Ireland off a bridge if he does that. On the other hand, it'd be sweet to tell the people that think Ireland "deserves another year", I told you so....lol

    Ozzy rules!!

    absolutely no offensive lineman imo

    There are plenty of top pass rushers. Its the deepest position in this draft imo. Thats were we should go.

    Richie Incognito was our best lineman after Mike Pouncey in 2012. I cannot see creating another hole to fill at LG when we already have an iffy LT and probably new RG an RT.

    if its deep, why do you take a pass rusher no matter what at 12? doesnt make sense to me.

    I also dont understand why people want to draft a position so definitely when its not really a hole on defense. Vernon was a rookie. Shelby could end up being a stud. no one knows what will transpire.

    The holes on our rosters if our FA are not signed are:

    1. RT
    2. TE
    3. WR x 2
    4. Safety

    huge holes as we stand right now.

    I don't care of he's stronger than The Hulk and eats barbwire for breakfast. If they draft a tackle in the first round I'll be livid.

    If our draft was anything like that, I would defiantly not jump off a bridge. I would staple a note to my chest saying Fire Ireland and hang myself from Sun Life

    Defiantly and definitely are two different words.

    It wasn't out of context. He was saying he would do it to defy Ireland... somehow.

    On the other hand you could defiantly do it again. It's your choice to definitely be defiant or defiantly be definite with your future choice of words.

    Just a quick note: It might be interesting to know that San Francisco has (3) first round picks for their starting offensive line.
    Including Joe Staley-LFT #28, Mike Lupati LG#17 and Anthony Davis-RT #11. Seems that combination has worked well for them.
