    At least there’s still some rationality in the FO these days.

    Won't know until the draft. Miami has been a hard read pre-draft, which is the way it should be.

    It would be kind of stupid to say the loved him and he’s definitely an option at 11.

    I would say that is a good thing since #11 is way too early for him.

    I'd love to have him behind Tannehill for a season or 2

    Boy, that’d be too bad.

    I guess we’d just have to settle for a linebacker or something else we don’t need more than a QB.

    Not really....according to ‘sources’ they’re in love with the top 50 players in the draft at 11

    There is only one qb good enough for the dolphins. That's RT. Everyone else is extremely flawed it seems

    Gase has shown to be adaptable as an OC, but Jackson doesn't have the skillset he typically wants in his offense.

    Also, QBs in the mold of Lamar Jackson have been completely unsuccessful in the NFL. The latest, DeShaun Watson, didn’t even make it 3 games before being out for the year. Why does everyone expect Lamar Jackson to be different? Do the laws of physics not apply to him? Will he somehow not take the same kind of hits that ruined RG3 and took out Watson in a matter of games?

    And Watson relies less on his legs than Jackson does.

    Vick is the only true mobile QB that I recall having any kind of longevity. Other "mobile QBs" tended to utilize their legs mostly for scrambling. I wouldn't even consider Cam Newton a mobile QB like Jackson, even though he is adept at using his running ability to move the chains. He is still primarily a pocket passer. Plus he has size that guys like Jackson can't even touch.

    What are you talking about? 1. Watson made it more than 3 games. 2. He was injured in a non contact drill in practice. Very similar to the non contact injury Ryan Tannehill suffered. 3. There are plenty of examples of successful QBs that run as well. Ever hear of Russell Wilson or Cam Newton?
