    The draft is over and it is what it is, but who would you of preferred for us to draft in the 6th round Cornell Armstrong or Braxton Berrios? The Dolphins could of drafted either in the 6th round. Armstrong was picked by the Dolphins at pick 35 and Berrios was picked at 36 by the Patriots.

    Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker, Danny Amendola, Albert Wilson, and Jakeem Grant are locks to make the roster. He would, at best, be competing with Carroo, Ford and Morgan for 6th receiver. I much rather have depth in the defensive secondary.

    Armstrong looks pretty good but I would have rolled the bones on Holton Hill. Character concerns/weed but he has the size and talent that would have made a good boundary corner for us.

    Yup, Hilton Hill was worth taking a risk on. We had played it safe on all the other picks.

    I'm a hurricane fan who saw Berrios do a pretty good job with a pretty bad QB so I pick him.

    We have too many receivers as it is...but picking Berrios would have been a nice “up yours”, as Belichick clearly wanted him evidenced by his personal visit to him.

    We’ll see who the better pro is long term.

    I'm a Cane and appreciate everything Berrios did in Coral Gables, but IMHO he isn't an NFL WR. That said, we just re-signed McCain long term so I'm not 100% where Armstrong is gonna fit in the long term scheme of things. I'd have preferred they take a CB that projects outside a bit better in that case. Maybe Armstrong does and I'm just erroneously pigeon holing him based on size.

    Give it time to play out. We all have our favorites in the draft, but sometimes we forget about system fit etc. The Dolphins do seem pretty set at wide receiver and have more opportunities at corner.

    I loved Berrios as a collegian. However, after the FA signings of Amendola, Wilson his odds of making the team, let alone impacting the team was almost zero.
    He has a much better chance of sticking with the Pats as the Phins have more talent and depth at the receiver position. And like any other late round draft choice, his odds of being a good NFL player are statistically low.

    Why don’t worry more about which 6th rounders will even play a down in the NFL first

    Haven’t see enough of Armstrong to pass judgment.

    I know I would have much rather drafted Berrios in the 6th round than to give Albert Wilson 24 million with 14 million guaranteed. That’s for damn sure.

    Dolphins picked up 2 guy's CB Cornell Armstrong in the 6th and CB Jalen Davis as an undrafted free agent, gave Davis 45k signing bonus and only gave LB Mike McCray 22k half that.
    So looks like they doubled down on 2 smaller CB's....must be looking for something specific here, why else double down...cover smaller quicker receivers possibly, fast backs running pass routes etc...

    Davis popped during OTA's.....is getting noticed

    With the league as it is these days, you must have at the very least 3 healthy corners that are starting material at all times. Berrios would be the 5th WR at best and I dont think he beats anyone returning kicks or punt who's already on roster... No brainer IMO...

    Let the Pats develop him, then snag him in FA. If he's that good, it'd be nice payback for Welker.

    Cause a lot of later round Miami guys actually pan out. For some reason the fins never take advantage.

    Just gave 2015 5th round pick Bobby McCain a 4 yr 27 mil dollar contract

    I would say that qualifies

    Most of these guy's don't work out, some do

    Reshad Jones 5th, Jay Ajayi 5th, Rishard Matthews 7th, Davon Godchaux 5th, Charles Clay 6th, Lamar Miller 4th. Bobby McCain 5th

    Go way back in time - Mark Clayton 8th, Jake Scott 7th etc...

    Some here now some gone, Miami is actualy pretty darn good at finding talent late in the draft

    I thought we were fishing for a replacement for McCain replacement when we drafted Armstrong. Regardless with what we have on the roster the cd make sense over a wr in the 6th round. Of course a DT or QB would have been more exciting imo.

    I agree with your point on Berrios. I hate the Pats, but he's such a hard worker and standup guy that I'll still root for him. Definition of student-athlete as well. I wasn't huge on his NFL odds, but he's certainly in a tailor made system that will get the most out of him. Rooting for him.

    I loved the Armstrong pick as insurance for McCain, but now that they locked McCain up (thankfully) we'll see. Special teams will probably tell Cornell Armstrong's NFL story.... At least early on. I like Davis too, and McTyer for that matter.

    I'm the same. I'll root for Berrios. Great kid and a hard worker like you say.
