Mine is that we trade up for a guy who might never even be healthy enough to play a regular season NFL down. We would lose the ability, because of the trade up, to make up for losing Tunsil and wind up with another season of terrible offensive line play, still completely unable to pressure the other team's QB, or cover RBs out of the backfield.

On a side note; do you think "if he's good enough to take at #5, he's good enough to lose our #18 and second round pick to secure." ?

Trading away all our talent to accumulate draft picks, followed by a terrible year....

.....just to draft a guy who has all the talent in the world but is small, left handed, and gets banged up a lot.....

....and trading away valuable and needed picks to move up one or two spots to get this guy, only to realize that.....

....a QB isnt the only thing a team needs. Even the mighty Marino took us to one SB in 16 years, proving that an elite QB is pretty darn nice to have, but much more is required.

Moving up to get Tua is a fools errand. If he’s there at 5, I could live with it, but trading away what we got (and suffered for) to move up a couple spots for one questionable guy seems unsound.

Which is why we’ll probably do it.

Trading up from 5.

There is so much talent we could acquire at every pick in the first 2 rounds.

I would like to trade back up into the 4th and 5th by packing our 6th/7th picks. Then scoop up the non-drafted players for our long long shots and practice squad players

By "draft day" (singular) I presume you mean Day 1. Can't say I have a "fear," but I have some decisions Miami could make that would disappoint me. Closest I can come would be reaching for a pick.

How about "if he's good enough to take at #18, he's good enough to lose our #26 and #56 to secure." ? If the logic about #5 is sound, it will be sound for any pick. I don't buy that. To state the obvious, Grier/Flo pick and no one knows how they value any potential pick
