    Reading Cian Fahey's twitter feed and the numerous plays he showed of Allen then he's going to be a bust. Kid is baaaaad.

    Perhaps, but the truth is I don't know what is in Gase's mind. Does Gase love Mayfield? Maybe he does. Our 'sources' sure want us to think that he does. Just like 'sources' want us to think that Sean Payton loves Baker Mayfield, too.

    Me? I look at the Dolphins not even having meetings with guys they were targeting in the draft and the ridiculous obfuscation they've gone with every year since Tannenbaum got here and I think, "This stinks."

    I think if you want to know who Miami's got its sights on, look at players who make a lot of sense to be drafted at #11 who might be there, and that Miami ISN'T meeting with, and ISN'T being linked to.

    They sit in a perfect spot here.Seems as though they are calling our Bluff to sit right behind Miami.

    Cordy Glenn gets Buffalo to move up 9 spots with a rediculous Contract like his.My god

    Very true and hard to not think about. But Tannenbaum strikes me as someone who thinks he’s the smartest person in the room and would do the exact opposite to throw people off. Which means, essentially, we still don’t know who they like lol.

    glenn when healthy is damn good and o line was a big need for cinci so it makes sense

    tells you cincis not in the qb top pick market though to trade out

    it's either red rocket or aj

    Everyone is the division is chasing New England and finding an elite or close to elite quarterback is the clearest path to competing with the Patriots.

    I could see all three AFC East teams, not counting NE, taking a qb in the first round. That said, even NE could take someone like Rudolph late in R1 since Garapolo is no longer there backing up Brady.

    bingo...that's my read too

    like they don't think miamis really in the qb top pick market

    but then again to sit at 12 they have to be willing to get into the top 10 if need be for their qb

    you don't go there and just sit still for a qb...you go get it

    they wont sit at 12 if it's allen I know that much

    maybe they were just trying to get ahead of Arizona, it would be funny for Miami to then trade down to 15 on draft day

    you know tbaum sitting in the cat bird seat knowing they were coming up for a qb and holding all the leverage would get short changed in that scenario

    you got to make teams coming up for qbs bleed

    People gotta get off the Josh Allen train he has loads of awful tape and much of it is against superior competition

    I don't buy into the excuse that he "was surrounded by lesser players" bc he was playing against lesser competition too and still couldn't complete 58% of his passes

    People are dismissing the accuracy issue bc he's "tall and has a strong arm"

    Would you rather have chad Pennington or Kyle boller

    Yeah, I don't even try to predict. Part of me thinks that the interest in Mayfield right now is because we're interested in his teammate, the TE, I forget the kid's name.

    Ultimately... I'm going to watch the draft, and go "Huh, okay," and probably be real surprised at what happens.

    it doesn't matter what you or I think but prototypes get drafted at the top of drafts...josh allen is a prototype all the way at qb...even runs 4.75 and 6 foot 5 237 comes from a pro system and that arm is ungodly

    if miamis in the qb market those teams 8 to 10 are the ones who already have qbs who are the likely trade out to buffalo candidates should they go after baker I'd say...pretty sure you better be top 6 to sniff allen

    the combine locked that **** up

    I’m stunned the Giants are going to trade out of #2? I figured they’d stay for at least one of the QB’s or Barkley.

    Especially after what the Dolphins pulled with Charles Harris, keeping their interest a secret, clubs are probably onto them now, so they might think, like you do, that it could be a smokescreen. The Dolphins know this, and may want people to think it may be a smokescreen, so maybe it's NOT a smokescreen. The point is, we really don't know their true intentions or not. Which is good, but frustrating.

    Who says the Browns don't take Rosen at one? If the Bills stay at 2, they must like more than one guy, unless they plan on trading to 1.

    For this intrigue, yes; for building Super Bowl teams, maybe not so much.

    Because they are about to get a bunch from Bills

    please either let buffalo jump ahead of us for a QB (and assure that at least Rosen, Darnold, Allen, and Mayfield all go before our pick), or let them stay at 12 and force someone to trade with us at 11 to get ahead of them because one of them is still there.

    when its easier to name the positions that don't need to be addressed than it is to name the positions that need someone you have a roster problem and don't need to be trading away picks.. Best Available player at 11 please! don't be trading away valuable high picks to pass over 3 maybe 4 players who we aren't interested in anyways.. just pick BPA please stop F'ing this up.

    to get to #2 you gonna be a ransom

    the odd thing with rosen is his game is ball placement and he's a California kid isn't he? neither of those seem to fit that buffalo weather and wind

    If Gase believes in Tannehill, then it's great if Buffalo wants to jump us for a QB. Might be more non-QB impact players left at 11. If Gase wants to dump Tannehill for a QB, then we might be screwed.

    Nah a couple more picks will get us to 2. 21+12 gets you to 4 already.

    Oooo well no worried weather and Wind. Rosen arm strong enough for a couple years until T Pegs builds his downtown Dome

    Unless Cleveland is totally enamored with one QB over the other, they should take Barkley and take the best one left at 4. Or if they really want a specific QB, find out what the Giants want to jump from 4 to 2.

    That might be what ultimately happens. That be smart on the Giants part because they’d still be able to make another deal with Buffalo, if their QB is there? Giants would be sitting pretty.

    Yeah, it will be a king’s ransom. Something that Miami is best to avoid doing.

    I really hope that someone grabs an oven mitt and covers Tannebaum’s trigger finger.

    The Bills are playing this like the Eagles did with Wentz. I was on this well before the Glenn move.

    you know how many teams want to get up there for these qbs? you are gonna pay a **** load to come from outside the top 10 to there and there will be plenty of competition you have to beat out

    that's why Miami and trade up unless tanny is traded past say pick 8 just doesn't even make sense
