I agree with all of that except Clements. Clements is the top corner in free agency, but hes not a shut down guy. However, he will get Shut down money, which he wont deserve. I almost guarantee the man gets almost 10 mill gauranteed money. It just seems to be the trend now when decent corners hit free agency.
I agree with Moses, i'd rather russell over brohm though.
Here are Miami top three position upgrades in 2007:
Miami will go to the draft for whoever the best player available is when they pick. So it is hard to say which one of those positions they will go with. Plus you have to consider the possiblity of them getting a couple of those positions in free agency.
But those are the top 3 positions. Forget QB until maybe a late round pick.
It doesn't matter what we need, Saban will find a way to ruin his 3rd straight 1st round draft choice and just blow it on an overrated SEC player that he once recruited or coached against. At least in a few years that excuse won't be feasible being he's been out of college for almost 3 years now.
Problem is that every team will have $$$$ next season, so let us forget about signing all those big time players. We are lucky if the Fins can get either Steinbach, Briggs OR Samuel. But never more than one.
About drafting a QB in teh 1st round I am strictly against it. The jury is still out for Culpeppefr and he is signed until 2013. If you draft a QB in Rd. 1 that is nothing but a sign for the team that Culpepper is done.
The Fins do need:
- Young DT
You might get a G or DT in FA, but OL you must draft in Rd. 1
