I know I've looked at and talked about Tulsa LB Zaven Collins before. But I can't find it anywhere. Probably the FH search function coming up poorly again.

Anyway, he's a friggin monster. I want.

Junior Seau. That's who he reminds me of.
I see some Jason Taylor in his game. I know the competition at Tulsa isn't SEC, so he might not come in a produce at a high level right away.

A possible 10-6 team with 4 top 50 picks, a rookie franchise QB and HC. Talk about trending up.

The 4 pics will be critical in determining our path to true perennial contender.
What’s the vision?
Address all weaknesses or build a dominant identity?

Seems obvious needs are WR, RB DT LB
Our WRs get minimal separation, our RBs aren’t dynamic and we still have hard time stopping the run.
Lesser extent: C, FS, Edge
Great question. All along I've been thinking load up talent around Tua. That still could be the approach.

But if Miami could add a standout defender among those top four picks, the team could potentially matchup better against athletic quarterbacks.

The Jets are apparently Watson's first choice. Even if New York decides not to go that route, Fields and Wilson are both athletic and likely targets in the draft.

Who knows what the Patriots will do. Buffalo has Allen. All three teams could end up with athletic quarterbacks and that was a huge problem area for Miami.

Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah​

highlights for the fist time…and I see he is not listed in the first post.

Wow…this kid can ball - smaller size a 215 lbs but he can hit, he can cover, he has shown that he forces fumbles, he had six touchdowns and 6 or 7 interceptions...

Butkus Award Winner too.

Parsons is a freak talent. Collins had a great year, good season to need a high end 2nd level defender.

Pach you got thoughts on any of the next class yet?

Was really digging into Carson Strong and I'm pretty intrigued there.

Big arm. He's definitely not a guy that's going to keep hitting the front of the rim. Seems ridiculously accurate, truth be told. The ball placement isn't always perfection but the consistency of his delivering the football to a catchable spot is uncanny. And the deep ball usually ends up on the line and in front of the guy on the run, like I said he's not a guy who undershoots.

The throwing skills are significant but the thing that gets me a little bit more than that is the demeanor. Is it me, or does he just never, ever look panicked? Even when he's getting sacked. It's not that he's got dead feet. They're active, but relaxed.

The way he floats in the pocket and seems to feel everything in advance, never panic, get out of the rush if he can and take the sack if it's a pressure you can't get out of, etc. I know exactly how cliche it is to compare every pocket passer coming out to Tom Brady but I went ahead and checked a video of Brady's first NFL start just to be sure and it's almost a dead ringer.

I'm curious what his personality is in the locker room and in film study. He certainly looks like he studies. But I'd want to know how he gets on with teammates.

Granted this isn't the formula everyone's looking at today. We want the guy who runs a 4.5 or 4.6 and plays sandlot football. But Strong looks like a pretty compelling throwback.
