Drafting Love at any position would be a disaster and is my biggest draft day fear. It's not just because I'm not a fan of "athletic" QB's. It's because he's going to need an infrastructure that's already in place. That's why Mahomes ended up being successful. Do you think if Mahomes were drafted by the Dolphins that he would have fared well? Hell no he wouldn't. Teams like Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, and possibly Las Vegas would be much better landing spots for him. Let some other team take that risk with him.
Why is Love an "athletic QB"? He didn't run the ball in college and would be hardly be considered a "dual-threat" QB.I'll throw myself into Biscayne Bay if they draft this athlete masquerading as a QB. I hope Grier and Flores aren't stupid enough to go in this direction.
Not really. It's smart to draft high value position players in the first round. Odrick was average and Harris is a bad, but taking those positions in the first round makes way more sense than taking a running back. Miami just happened to get the player evaluations on those particular players wrong. Drafting good players matters, but drafting good players at high value positions in the first round matters way more because of the implication it has on the salary cap.So was drafting Harris, Odrick, etc... way worse value than any of these RB’s
