OK, it is pretty simple- there are two scenarios.

SCENARIO 1

Trade Surtain for a 2nd + 5th

Trade a 4th rounder for Travis Henry

Draft Alex Smith at #2

Draft a S with our 2nd rounder

Leaving us with QB: Smith and HB: Henry

SCENARIO 2

Trade Surtain for a 2nd + 5th

Draft Ronnie Brown at #2

Draft a QB (Jason Campbell?) or a S with the 2nd rounder

Leaving us with QB: Feeley HB: Brown

What do you think is the better option, Smith and Henry or Feeley and Brown?

IMO, Scenario #2 is the way to go

If the Dolphins draft Alex Smith he is going to be for the future only. Feeley will be given every chance to prove himself.

So you think if we invest a #2 in a QB, we go with Feeley anyway?

That would make zero sense in my opinion. Either rebuild or play to win. Choose.

Scenario 2, Saban said that there is only a 30% chance of drafting a successful QB in the first round so...

I would like this scenario personally:

Trade Surtain for a 2nd + 5th

Draft Josh Bullocks in the 2nd.

Draft Cedric Bensonor Carnell with our #2 pick or trade down if possible

Then we would have

QB: A.J Feeley
RB: Benson or Carnell
FS: Josh Bullocks

I like your scenerio #1 but there is a problem. So far no team has even wanted to part with a second round pick for Pat. ;)

Travis Henry was not cut.

And- I dont think the compensation with Surtain is the problem, it is signing him to a contract.

Id rather let the rookie sit on the bench for a year and learn then throw him to the wolves before he is ready

Theres no better way to learn. Get him out there and leave the clipboard for Gus or AJ. I definitely saw the progression in Eli, and that was just 1/2 a season.

Exactly, and I like choice #2.

You're right. I misread the post. For some reason I read Travis and saw Leonard.

According to the San Diego Chargers, you don't have to choose. You can have both. Situationally, what's the difference between Brees/Feeley and Rivers/Smith?

Change is the only constant in this league.
