Here's a mock I just saw from Walter

Tua-QB
Wills-OT
Swift-RB
Tyler Johnson-WR
Tyler Biadasz-C
Terrance Steele-OT

all good players but I doubt we only go offense with our 1st 6 picks. I'd think we'd draft Edge at some point up there. One thing is for sure. These 6 guys would make our offense much better. That's a lot of talent even tho that's not what I'd do. For one I'd rather have Dobbins at RB and Ruiz at Center but it's just a mock with 90 more days to go so.
Wills seems to be a high riser right now so doubtful he's there at 18. Not really looked at Johnson at all but feel like we could get a better wideout there, having watched Steele at the senior bowl, I want us to keep well away personally.

...so here's one I did at first-pick.com. In this, the Panthers traded up to 5, and then Cleveland traded up to 7. Normally I don't post first-pick stuff because it seems so outlandish, but this made me go "...uh...hmm." Of course, I don't see Brown dropping to 10, but....

Yes, I know who I passed on. Please put down the pitchforks.

Picks:
Round 1 Pick 10 (CLE): Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn (A)
Round 1 Pick 18: Jordan Love, QB, Utah State (B+)
Round 1 Pick 26: Xavier McKinney, SS/FS, Alabama (A-)
Round 1 Pick 27 (SEA): KLavon Chaisson, DE/OLB, LSU (B+)
Round 2 Pick 7: Julian Okwara, DE/OLB, Notre Dame (B)
Round 2 Pick 9 (CLE): Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson (A)
Round 2 Pick 24: Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn (A-)
Round 3 Pick 26 (CLE): Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, LSU (A-)
Round 4 Pick 39: Jon Runyan, OG, Michigan (A+)
Round 5 Pick 16: Jordan Fuller, FS/SS, Ohio State (A+)
Round 6 Pick 6: Shaquille Quarterman, ILB/OLB, Miami (A+)
Round 6 Pick 18: Khalil Davis, DT, Nebraska (A+)
Round 7 Pick 32: Joseph Charlton, P, South Carolina (A+)
Round 7 Pick 36: Parnell Motley, CB, Oklahoma (A+)

The OT's went early, and based on how they rated Jones and Reagor, I felt good about adding CJ Henderson at 18.
Love it. If you look at positional choices in that first round, think prior to FA it's pretty clear which route we "should" go down. QB-OT-Secondary, how you end up picking them entirely based on how the picks fall ahead of us. You could make the argument for an Edge guy or a Center or even a second OT in round 1, but those can probably wait till a little later for me, if we haven't fixed those holes in FA.

If something crazy happens like the Bengals drafting Tua, then I would love this. I love physical DTs who can provide pressure up the middle. Brown is a beast. After that, build the wall. Fortify the lines. Chaisson won't last that long though.

Appreciate it. I just think Henderson is underrated. Has speed, twitch, length, and technique, and CB is a premium position. He's a cornerstone type of talent that can distract me from surrounding the QB with blockers and weapons, and if I can get Jones, Reagor, Wilson, Edwards, Phillips, and Bowden, I feel awesome about spending 18 on Henderson.

Don't love this Edge class, and outside of Ruiz, I'm fine waiting on Center.

The 2020 Class is strong at WR, CB, OT, and QB, and I think Miami should take advantage. They're all premium/expensive positions, and 3 of the 4 directly benefits the QB or is the QB. CB, of course, is as important as any position at stopping the opposing QB.

I prefer to build the trenches first but the Fins do not have to complete the rebuild(or just build really)in one off season.They have extra picks next year and may well add more from deals in this Draft.

So if an explosive, big play WR is good value at 18 or 26 I might be OK with it.A speed guy would be an excellent compliment to Miami's tall, possession types.

But I really don't want to Draft skill positions early as a general rule.IF you have a strong OL and a good QB you don't need outstanding skill position players to score points.
