    Giving up the 1st rounder isn't as big a deal as the fact that there is NO WAY we could afford to pay the guy. Besides, I'd rather keep the pick and get a good RB or Braylon Edwards.

    Maybe if he was 5 years younger...or if we had a pick outside the top 10.

    But not the 2nd overall pick.

    For a LT of Pace's caliber...maybe...but, you give up the #2 pick AND the mega-cap-hit deal that Pace will get, so it would kind of hurt to do something like this.

    I can understand us not being able to pay him, but this is one of the worst years ever to have the 2nd pick in the draft. If we could afford his salary, I would definitely give up this years #2 pick. Pace has at least 5 more effective years.

    Pace is great but u dont trade the #2 overall pick for a 30 year old LT (especially when your not even in SB contention) whos only got 3 maybe 4 great years left in him!

    Ronnie Brown
    Cedric Benson
    Cadillac Williams
    Mike Williams
    Braylon Edwards
    Erasmus James
    Derrick Johnson

    Barring a major injury they could all have 10+ great years in them!

    BS!

    The top of this draft is loaded with the offensive firepower that we need!

    Ronnie Brown
    Cedric Benson
    Cadillac Williams
    Mike Williams
    Braylon Edwards

    They all have the talent/upside to be franchise players!

    But, are any of them as valuable as having a proven franchise LT for 5 or 6 more years?

    I could care less about Pace. We've never been in the running for his services. If we were, I'd change my mind, but Pace is out of our league....

    PHINZ RULE!!! :evil:

    Pace is already 30!

    I highly doubt that he'll be a franchise LT for another 5-6 seasons!

    Giving up the #2 pick in the draft woulkd be terrible. Pace is getting older and he wont help us in the future.

    No Reason to Get Pace he is getting older and would cost Miami alot more then a Draft Pick try alotta money too... even though our O-line wasnt that great last year bringing in pace would just screw alotta stuff up
