Not much pounding will be going on. Depending on whether you classify 81 as middle round, Miami only has a tail end pick at 156.
If they want to move on from either Rowe or McCain then he could be in play. I don't believe Flores was there for Sewell. Highly doubt we moved back up to 6 to not draft a playmaker.It is interesting that Flores was at Oregon's pro day. Maybe it was to double check on Sewell, but Holland certainly would help Miami.
3 day will be boring seeing 75 players go off the board before we pick unless that is, we trade down from either 18,36,50 or 81 and get some extra picks in the 4th or 5th round.Not much pounding will be going on.

I am certainly not trying to attack your post but yours is an interesting way to view talent. As for me I see it nearly 180 degrees in reverse. I see football as a sport not played between the lines, but between the ears. Five star HS recruits who fail to put it on tape to me are much less likely to turn it on and find their way in the pros than those with less talent but just have a love and knowledge of the game, and understanding they are going to have to out work, and out study the next guy to be great. Knowing that from the start puts them in the right mindset IMO.Walker Little OT out of Stanford. Dude has all pro potential he’s just been out of football due to injuries for over a year.
Justin Hilliard LB and Jonathan Cooper EDGE out of Ohio St are 2 guys that have a ton of talent just not the tape and production to back it up. Rounds 5-7 is where you’ll find these 2 and they have the classic look of better pro players than they were college players.
Talanoa Hufanga a Safety out of USC. Go watch the tape of the PAC 12 Championship game against Oregon. Dude just flies around the ball. Better in coverage than I expected and he’s a head hunter. Love love love his game. Maybe the most underrated prospect in the draft for me.
Camryn Bynum a CB out of Cal. Dude was all PAC 12 multiple times and is a team captain for multiple years. Doesn’t have great long speed but he’s exceptionally good in his technique.
Tyler Vaughns WR out of USC and Trevon Grimes WR out of Florida are 2 6th-7th round guys that have lots of potential. Both are former 5 star prospects coming out of high school that didn’t live up to their respective hype but still possess a ton of raw talent.
My theory for late round picks are to look for guys that have at least 1 trait that we can coach up. All these guys except for Bynum are former 5 star prospects and all possess loads of natural talent. It just needs to be coached up. It just so happens we now have a guy that’s exceptional at coaching and developing players in Flo and the staff. Would be thrilled to have any of these guys as a part of our draft class.
