    Simple truth -- we don't have enough picks (especially premium) to

    address all needs in a comprehensive way. I still hope we go BIG

    LOS and get that area solved #1.

    If we're able to pull off a trade down and pick up (1 scenario) 2

    additional R3 (giving us 5 top 100) then we'd have a lot more latitude

    to address multiple positions. But either way I'd love to see us get the

    OL riddle solved for once in like 20 years...

    You're right about that. Slides happen every year.

    But, Bradbury is widely considered the most NFL ready iOL in the draft. McCoy will be a possibility, but I don't think he'll be there

    Keep in mind guy that Flores and company could be looking for something different in a player than we think. NE likes big OT's but when it comes to guard and center they seem to have more athletic guys. On the other hand the O-line coach said he wants an O-line that can dominate the D-line so I'm thinking they want maulers up front and when it comes to centers in this draft Elgton Jenkins could fit that description and most mocks I've seen have him going in that 45 to 50 area so he could be there for us at 48. Again, if we move back then O-line with our first pick is very possible while I don't see it at 13.

    There is just not enough picks or selections in the 2019 draft to cover all of Miami's needs. If the F/O has truly adapted the NE way, there's a good chance they'll trade down. More picks means more chances. I can see a scenario where they end up with additional 2nd day picks and additional picks in 2020. OLine and DLine seem to be what they are targeting in round #1. LB's could be the targets on day 2? They've brought in a lot of LB's!! But to get a better chance at getting their guys, they'll need additional ammo. DB's are going to be a premium for this new staff. This is why trading down makes a lot if sense. Day 2 could be a huge day for Miami?

    I could totally get behind Taylor Rapp in the 2nd round if he makes it to our pick.

    I believe the Dolphins are thinking trade back and pick up every pick we can get unless there is value in the selection. Then they will coach the **** out of those players and turn them into JOB doers!

    For sure....probably in the first three rounds is probable.

    Keep in mind though...I think this defense will resurrect Tankersly because he is much better at man defense....it was Zone that confused him.

    You can never have too many good corners. IMO it's one of the most important positions to have depth at, always seems like there are DB injuries.

    Agree, but IMO this years draft is deep with very good DL and OL, for the first 3 rounds. And deeper with CB/S/FS later after round 4. Starting type stuff.
