    Hope he signs and puts this Thill to Broncos crap to bed. Thill needs to be kept for 2 more years regardless of we draft another QB. I am not a Thill fanboy I'm a logical fan and th we is no reason not let Thill lead the team this year.

    Which is totally fine I would to in the first or second and let Thill run the O for another year or two. Personally I would be going after Teddy Bridgewater for cheap though and drafting much bigger needs. Oline, RB, TE and our new gaping hole at DT soon to come supposedly. As for drafting a QB Mason Rudolph, Luke Faulk and Lamar Jackson can all be had much later.

    I would love a QB in the first also, but its hard to see how a QB besides Rudolph and Jackson fall to 11.

    Didn't you hear? Every move the Dolphins make now is to position themselves to move up for Baker Mayfield.

    Landry wasn't re-signed because the Dolphins don't want to have an issue extending Mayfield's contract in 4 years.

    Bridgewater wont be cheap - it has been said he will get at least $12 million a year

    We need to get it through our brains that noone is cheap these days - especially a QB

    With the Bills moving up to 12, it gives them the firepower to move up past us. So now that's the jest and jills possibly taking Mayfield. It's also possible a team from way out in left field comes up as well for him.

    The possibility of us losing out on him is more real by the day. The way the Dolphins have overtly made their desires for Mayfield known, it seems strange they will pick him because that's the opposite of what they always do.

    Maybe Miami can rope a dope teams to leapfrog us and do the end around by drafting an impact non QB starter at 11.

    Could happen.

    We really can’t lose here unless we

    A. Over trade up and reach for a QB that doesn’t pan out

    B. Stay put and choke on the pick by not getting an impact starter.

    Either could happen with this idiotic regime.

    Cleveland is not taking Barkley number one overall they will draft Chubb or Fitzpatrick and a quarterback with their first two picks. If Barkley makes it past the Giants and we do not trade up to get him (I'm worried about Tampa) I will freak out. I can see the Giants going Oline and Tampa grabbing Fitz though. This can very well hapen and I'm getting excited about it.

    Fitzpatrick will be taken 7-10 imo with top six as Barkley, Rosen, Chubb, Darnold, Allen, and Mayfield (perhaps in that order)

    With the Vikings reportedly the front runner for Cousins that leaves the Browns, Broncos, Jets and Bills taking a QB.
    None will get near 11
    Keenum is a stop gap in Denver, so they will draft someone to develop and will not trade their pick. The Jets and Bills are desperate for QB help. The Bills are positioning themselves for a big trade up for a QB.

    Absolutely agree, i think we need 7/8 years to fairly evaluate Tannehill. It is also not fair that we dont have a pro bowl lineman at every position. Tannehill needs more time in the pocket to check down

    7 to 8 years to fairly evaluate?? That's probably the funniest thing I've ever heard.

    i was being sarcastic that was directed towards the "tannehill hasnt had enough weapons, good enough O line, or enough time to evaluate" crowd

    Just say no to Bridgewater!!!! He's so overrated it isn't even funny....and that was when he had two good legs. I'm stuck watching Vikings games every weekend due to family, and he isn't all that impressive. Not near as accurate as Tannehill. It was his mobility that saved him, but he doesn't throw on the run as well as Tannehill either, and certainly not after that devastating knee injury. A lot of people here concerned about Ryan's knee after an ACL yet they want Bridgewater who basically exploded everything in his knee and wasn't all that far off from losing the dang thing. It would be so Dolphins if we signed this guy....

    I love that people want to bring in Bridgewater because they’re concerned about Tannehills health, when Bridgewaters injury was so bad they were not even sure if he would walk again let alone play.

    Not only that but does everyone still not understand that you could have Jesus Christ himself at QB, and he would still have a hard time doing squat behind our line?

    Go get a QB, that’s fine, but until you fix that line you are going to have the same thing the Colts and ourselves have right now. Damaged goods wondering how it all happened.

    I mean Would anyone feel safe placing $20million in a glass safe? Because that’s about what the hell we’ve done with Tannehill behind this line...

    I guess he could simply be a 2 year placeholder for Josh Allen who is really tall.

    Most of the Bronco beat guys here in the Denver area feel Keenum is just a bridge QB, and Elway likely drafts Allen from up the road in Wyoming with the 5th pick, or whoever else is still on the board between Darnold, Rosen and Mayfield. I think all these QB’s will be gone by the time Miami picks at #11. Wouldn’t surprise me if the Phins give Teddy Bridgewater a short term deal to backup Tannehill, and be the #2.

    To be fair, this will be his 2nd year with a HC that is actually getting the best out of him, and has helped him grow to be the QB he should have been 5 years ago if not for a horrible HC, 3 useless O-Coordinators, and a way over his head QB coach.

    I don't really think Tannehill need pro-bowl caliber linemen across the line, just an O-line that each year is not considered top 5 worst...when not being considered THE WORST. Getn him a line that is average to a bit better then average, and see how he does.

    The fact that he is not mentally broke down after Philbin is a positive sign imo. Not to many QBs withstand bad coaching and have a shot at being above average.

    I don't see Miami landing a QB without moving up and we have more holes than ammunition. I could see 5 (if not 6) QB's off the board in the first 6 picks. There will be trades.

    Hard telling who likes who better so you can move any QB to any of these teams...

    1. Cleveland: Baker Mayfield, QB
    2. NYG - Sam Darnold, QB
    3. TRADE Buffalo (via Indianapolis): Josh Rosen, QB
    4. Cleveland - Saquon Barkley, RB
    5. Denver: Josh Allen, QB
    6. NYJ: Lamar Jackson

    Baker Mayfield is not going #1 overall. I actually like him a lot as a QB prospect, but NFL GMs are weird birds. He's not tall, and he played in a spread offense, and he's not a rare athletic talent, and he's been arrested for acting like a dumbass.

    So he's going to fall. I strongly suspect he will be around at pick #11.

    I agree, but because I think that may not be the case, as a Dolphins fan, I have no problems with that.

    Like I said, you can swap any QB's around as you like....and I'll agree to disagree about where Mayfield goes. The biggest stretch in that mock was Jackson, IMO.

    Mayfield won't make it past 5.

    I don't think Mayfield makes it close to 11. For every Manziel the GMs think about, their egos will always think they can have a Brees or Wilson. There are too many QB NEEDY teams in the top 10. Not every team has a 7 year QB plan like the Phins have had. Especially with LA and Philly taking 2 years and less.
