    CK came on my podcast and did about 70 minutes of purely Dolphins off-season content. Potential free agents, reshaping of the off-season, Jarvis Landry, Ryan Tannehill, Adam Gase and his staff, how this team will improve in 2018 and, his speciality, all things 2018 NFL Draft for our Phins.

    Part 1: Free agency, team building, Dolphins philosophy.

    https://megaphone.link/LKN8044988224

    Part 2: Draft, draft, draft. His short list for the 11th pick, AND, his way too early 2018 record prediction.

    Sooooo. Can we ask you guys to work together on more pods? I love your pods, not saying you need help, you do a great job of being informatice and impartial, even if you do sometimes tall a little fast. :). But yeah I love hearing both you guys talk fins football. Ive been on here for a long time and really miss CKparrots input around here.

    Nice listen. I agree with a ton of what was said. I do hope we move on from Pouncey.

    It took about 8 invitations to get Chris to do one lol.

    I'll have more Ian Wharton and Joe Schad in the future. Ian says yes every time, Schad wants to link back up closer to draft time.

    I'll have a guest from a podcast of every AFC East team next week. We're going to look into the off-season needs of the Jets, Bills and Pats. But yes, I do intend to get more guests. At least one per week if I can. It's just hard to coordinate since I'm on the west coast.

    I’ve always respected CKs input on players and the draft. Him and Slimm provide the best input in reference to college player on this whole forum imo.

    J-off deserves a big mention as well and hoops doesn't do it until later in the process but he has great takes on college prospects as well. Really quite a few quality posters in the Draft forum.

    I enjoy following the draft prospects and watch how they turn out. Slimm usually comes out on top IMO with his prospects production in the pros. Not sure why he is not getting paid big bucks scouting for some club in the NFL.

    Yeah I liked the Wharton episode a few weeks back. Hes great. So awesome you get him on your pod. He's pretty big time! I'm so glad you have been doing these pods because the other podcasts all fade when things get rough. Hoping you are still doing them next year when things pick back up for us.

    I heard you guys mentioning a lot about TE's for obvious reasons. We are probably looking at only Gray and MAYBE Fasano next year. My question is this....what do you guys think about thomas Duarte. Hes been in the wings for a couole seasons now and iirc his issue was the playbook and terrible blocking. Does he get his chance this year?

    Really liked the 5 guys you two came up with for the short list btw. I'm really high on tremaine edmunds. Love the way he runs through tackles and knifes through the line to male plays on the backfield. He takes great angles. At least from what I've seen. Plus he plays mean which we need. I had hoped timmons would bring all those things but it didnt pan out. Is edmunds a fit for what we aim to do next season? I know we want to get much faster.

    One last thing. Thought I heard one of you guys mention not liking Burke? I thought he showed promise but I'm not expert on the matter. He seemed way more aggressive than that frustratingly soft defense from the year before. For once we actually pressed the pats and didnt just give them easy wide open crossing routes all day long. I was encouraged. Maybe I misheard you guys or maybe I just dont see things well lol.

    I agree, both offer a little different perspective but offer great insight. I would easily rate them as 1a and 1b.

    Haven't heard much from Simon Clancey from across the pond lately. He'd also be a good guest

    I loved this Aqua, first time i heard you guys doing the question and answer thing....nice listen.
    I hope we are allowed to comment or ask questions on what we heard because i have one.
    One thing CK spoke about that troubled me on the possible release of landry, why would we have to look at possibly bringing in a FA/draft if Landry leaves? Is it possible that Grant can man that position adequately?

    I'm not sure what CK would say, but I personally think Jakeem is best suited as a jack-of-all-trades type. Not a guy that you put in the slot for a predetermined number of snaps, but a guy that you have a very specific game plan for as a mis-direction jet sweep, slot, plus split, lined up in the backfield... just move him everywhere.

    Great show. I think the most interesting point brought up by CK was the difference in perception of position groups between the fans and the team. For example, the possibility of standing pat at the LB position. CK mentioned that the team might consider moving Kiko back to MLB to maximize his productivity and in some ways maximize the value of his contract. In addition, he talked about how the team could work Anthony, Hewitt, and Allen more into the rotation.

    IMO, the team will acknowledge the Alonso error and move on. But not before a proven replacement is in place, and not before it makes sense for our cap status.

    God how much better would our team be if we just took the consensus bpa from Slimm, ck, hoops and j-off-her-doll at each pick in every draft?

    I've held the opinion for years that if we let our resident draft gurus run the Dolphins' draft room, we'd have drafted a hell of a lot better than Jeff Ireland, at least.

    If you go back and actually look at who they wanted vs who we picked and how it's worked out- Totally agree with you.

    I'm not an "X's and O's" guru but it seems this would only be possible if they draft a safety like James and plan to play three safeties a lot, essentially using one like a tweener LB/S and using James to cover TEs.

    NFL teams are playing more and more dime coverages, so it's not unthinkable. The question is if James has the range to be the center-fielder for a while.

    Aside from the quarterbacks (who probably will be gone by the time Miami picks), this might be my favorite option for the Dolphins at pick #11.

    There's a tweet-storm you may enjoy.

    Good podcast, although I think the chances of Teddy Bridgewater coming in as Tannehill's backup are, I don't want to say zero, because there's always a chance, but I'm going to go ahead and say zero anyway

    Nice thread! You just don't see hands with that kind of explosive burst very often. They're probably working at 50% (bs number) of what they will. It's a thought we discussed some in another thread, but that translates as a threat to disrupt the play on all 3 (or 4) downs. And, when you start to add his speed, instincts, and motor, it's hard to see him being anything but successful, with pretty much everyone agreeing that his ceiling is what you want.

    Without even getting into his ability rush from inside, and the options that provides the DC, he's one of the very best prospects in the draft.

    Working on doing a mega-draft podcast collaboration with Simon, Chris, and Alfredo Arteaga the week of the draft.

    If it happens, I'm basically just going to turn them loose and mediate.
