    Finheaven,

    What are the Dolphins 5 biggest needs to be addressed in the offseason?

    My opinion:
    1. WR
    2. CB
    3. DE
    4. DT (Depth)
    5. OG/C (again, Depth)

    I think that #1 is pretty obvious but after that it gets a little murky.

    5. WR

    Only half-joking with that. If we don't go into next season with 2-3 new WRs, this off season is a failure. Sign Jennings, and draft 1-2 with those 5 picks in the top 100. I love Hartline and Bess, but neither are dynamic game-changing players. I wouldn't be heartbroken if we let Hartline walk, knowing that he will be replaced with the game-breaking weapons we need. There is no excuse to go into training camp with Tannehill short on weapons...

    1. WR
    2. O-line (With or without Long, we need help at several spots)
    3. CB
    4. DE
    5. TE

    These are the areas I would focus on in the draft and free agency.

    1. Wr
    2. Wr(#2)
    3. Cb
    4. Ot. (Jake Long obviously fills this void)
    5. TE

    With 3(?) Total wide receiver Td's that should be high on anyone's list, I think Hartline and Bess are great receivers and maybe Mathews can develop, but Moore should not be a #3. If special teams has to take a hit so the receiver core can be upgraded so be it.

    Sometimes I wonder what sport Ireland thinks he's drafting for, never in the history of the NFL has there been a gm who hated speed more than jeff.

    1-Wr

    3-Wr
    4-OL
    5-LB
    6-TE

    Te is a big need but we need new blood at linebacker pretty bad to help out

    2. LB
    3. OLINE
    4. RB (unless we resign bush)
    5. TE

    I see a lot of DE replies on here but I strongly disagree. Dline is our strongest position. I'm excited about Wake/Vernon next year.

    I'd agree with this to the letter.

    I'm just going to say it again. Watching how the Giants and Seahawks handled New England, Miami need another stud pass rusher. Here's my list.

    Pass Rusher (either DL or OLB)
    Wide Receiver (#1 guy, big and physical)
    Wide Receiver (Deep threat)
    Corner
    Offensive line (tackle and guard if Long leaves, guard if Long stays)

    Pre draft/FA

    WR...Pick up Wallace or Jennings
    CB....Trace Porter
    DE....Cliff Avril
    TE...Jared Cook or Delanie Walker
    LB...Conner Barwin

    If we pick up any of these players, the draft priorities will change, with maybe the exception of WR.

    Draft - I expect us to be drafting about spot 16.

    WR
    DE
    CB
    WR
    TE

    Seattle also handled the Pats with two of the most physical corners in the league hand-fighting the entire route.
