    I like Calvin Ridley and Michael Gallup, quite a bit. If Ridley falls in the draft, I’d love to see a scenario where Miami trades down and grabs him while acquiring an additional pick.
    Plus, it’s nice to know that he loves the Dolphins and would like playing for them.

    For the TE’s, I’m all about Mike Gesicki and Dallas Goedert. Gesicki crushed the combine, so the value proposition won’t be there, but I love the kid anyway. I think the bugaboo on his lack of blocking is overblown, and that can be coached through repetition and practice over time.

    We need a dynamic playmaker at the TE position to bust the seams, and Gesicki is one the best in the draft at doing such. The way he high points the football is very impressive, and his speed for a big man is upper echelon stuff. Oh yeah, 41.5 inch vertical jump? Sign me up.

    There’s a lot of different ways Miami can go, but I would really be overjoyed with any of those four players: Ridley, Gallup, Goedert, or Gesicki. The bottom line for me, is that I don’t trust DeVante Parker - nor do I believe he plays a full season healthy.

    I like several receivers in this draft. For the slot position: Christian Kirk, DJ Moore, James Washington, Anthony Miller, Dante Pettis, and Deontay Burnett are my favorites. Pettis could be a good find based on reasonable draft position and value as a returner.
    Non-slot options include: Calvin Ridley, Courtland Sutton, Equanimeous St. Brown and DJ Chark. Chark could be a big play receiver if teamed with Parker and Stills, but I also like Simmie Cobbs as a 3rd or 4th round and Marquez Valdez-Scantling as 7th round option. Robert Foster is another sleeper that could be had in the 7th or maybe even as an udfa. I think Foster has talent and was lost somewhat at Alabama. If he were at a school like Oklahoma State he would have put up better numbers.

    Also remember with some many rookie receivers flooding the market there will be some decent vets available at good value.

    I’d gladly take James Washington in the 2nd or 3rd round.

    Draft Mike Gesicki and get Grant more touches. Roll with what we got. Parker at this point nothing special except stretching the field and the occasional deep TD. There is nothing in the first round worth drafting at WR and certainly not top 20. Go double Penn State Barkley and Gesicki whatever it takes. Keep Thill, cut Timmons and Alonso, let the young linebackers and DBs play.

    Which works out great for us to get him late 2nd or 3rd.

    I'm curious to see the market on players like Donte Moncrief. He's not a star player, but could be a valuable young vet on a cheap deal. Based on the free agent market and the number of receivers expected to go in the draft a receiver like Moncrief could be had at a fair price.

    I'm with you Corona!!! I love Braxton Berrios and think he's a Wes Welker waiting to happen. This kid is smart, tough and what he lacks in size he makes up with amazing effort. Berrios can be your slot receiver and also help you in the return game. As far as a TE, YES!!!! This is a great draft to snag a big time player at TE. I might even be inclined to double up depending how the draft falls. Love Fumagali but there are several great options here.

    I like it when they use the term "road grader" in the scouting report.

    It's pretty simple for me: Parker plays all 16 games and has a breakout season, or we're drafting a WR extremely high in 2019. We have good complimentary pieces in Stills and Wilson. Need that alpha WR1 who can take over a game.

    Always seems we focus on positions that we dont need to.

    If Tannehill is 100% back healthy, Parker will have a great year. They had a pretty good thing going before RT got hurt.

    I would prefer a true #1, but not many teams are built to keep track of 4 speedy midgets, plus really fast and shifty out of the backfield.

    I would actually try and give DVP a extension on a low figure coming off a injured & bad year of QB play.

    Even tho I think he might he made of glass he was emerging with Tannehill until our QB got hurt

    I would not be at all pleased with a WR in the first round, but I don't see it happening anyhow. TE would be OK, though.

    Tight end in round 2. Getting a LB who can actually cover a tight end is paramount in round 1. We can get a qb in 2020 draft

    At what point did they a good thing going? Even during Tannehills 8 game stretch Parker only had 31 catches, 350 yards, 11.29 y/c, and 2 TD's.

    I read your post and started investigating 2016 for Parker, as that was clearly his best season... Most obvious was his lack of targets in some games... So I remembered about how there was concern about him not being able to create enough separation at the NFL level when he was drafted.

    So I switched to nexgenstats to see where he ranked in average separation... While I'm not there yet, The leading receiver in the NFL for SEP kind of caught me of guard... Wait for it... Albert Wilson.

    Thought it was interesting.

    Now we're at :

    Parker
    Stills
    Wilson
    Amendola
    Grant
    Carroo/Ford etc ...

    Lined up, that looks considerably better than Landry in place of Amendola and Wilson.

    We got better that the position. I'm not upset at all. Adios Juice, thanks for giving it 110%.

    Landry was a great Dolphin and he'll be missed but I won't miss all of the times that he makes it about himself. If he can check his emotion a bit the Bears will like him much better. If he starts drawing flags it's going to go south fast.

    Landry went to the Browns, not the Bears.
