    ...Vita Vea as their first pick? I wouldn't mind that.

    doubtful, I think this is more about feeling good about Phillips and Godcheaux starting with Taylor in reserve. I see us going DT day 3 again

    I think they are pretty happy with their current DTs. There's something telling me we're going to QB in the first round.

    Classic Tbum Special: create a need and then fill that need in the same offseason while ignoring the needs that already existed.

    Has to be a QB. You can't tell me that jettisoning Landry, Ajayi and Suh is not a rebuild......and rebuilds usually start at QB. Tanny was not Gases dude.

    Honestly, it's the only way to keep fans interested at this point. We already know how Tanny plays with no line and no recievers. Draft a new QB, and I'll actually watch games next year.

    I wouldn't think so.

    I think they are pretty confident that elite talent will be there at 11.

    Roquan Smith, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Derwin James, Tremaine Edmunds (if they are as high on him as some are).

    The will be adding a blue chip player (non-QB).

    While I like Vea and wouldn't be upset if they drafted him as I'm in the build the DL camp, the way things are going I'm not so sure they don't take a QB in the 1st. If nothing else it buys them time waiting for him to developed they can claim Tannehill wasn't THEIR guy.

    I will turn the TV off immediately if DT is the pick in the first round.

    For real. Have we not learned that DT is a largely irrelevant position when it comes to wins after having Suh? We had one of the best in the game and the defense has been laughable.

    A aging Wake, youth stacked next to him and a LB corp that couldn't get a tackle behind the LOS, and you are pointing to the lone man eating up at least 2 blockers on every play?

    Suh isn't a God, but he did his job. It's not his fault the talent needed to be developed or just never showed up.

    DT is now a irrelevant position. Years ago, it was Guards. Now it's DT. GTFOH with that nonsense.

    Question now becomes which one and does Miami trade up or stand pat at #11? My personal choice would be Mayfield and I think the Dolphins would have to jump the Jets to get him. Of course, how Cousins' free agency plays out will tell us a lot more.

    If Miami stands pat, I think Jackson and Rudolph will be there. Jackson has exciting potential, but he has work to do. Rudolph would probably be considered a reach at #11, but I like him. I was trying to think of a comparison for him and this may be strange, but kind of a combination of Pennington and Rivers.

    Cian Fahey did GIFs of plays Rudolph ran..He looks much better than I thought, I think he may slip into round 2..

    I don't see them signing Sheldon Richardson if they are actually attempting a culture change. The guy was suspended twice and often a problem in the locker room. Cut in NY and Seattle doesn't want him back.

    Godcheaux and Taylor Seem like hits. And Phillips played good at the end of the season. Maybe a lower priced vet.

    With Suh gone we could actually move to a 3-4. But we wont do that.

    Not to mention the ****ing stable of 4-3 DEs we still have (And just ****ing signed) and lack of LBers..... But at least I could see some logic in that.

    Paying a FA to replace Suh in the 4-3, or drafting a rookie high is, as hoops would say, clown shoes.

    Should've traded Landry for Shelton. Run a true monster 4-3 where we have Tim Bowens-esque space eaters up front.

    I wouldn't pass on him. Think he may end up as the best qb in this draft.

    I don't think we'll go high for a DT but even if we did, it'd not cost what Suh was costing

    I think the Bills moved up to 12 to move up again. Did they fall in love with Allen? Hopefully.

    I know I'm in the minority, but I think Vea would be a great pick. I also think he was being considered by Miami even before the Suh trade.

    The 4 quarterbacks will be gone before pick 11 guaranteed. You would have to get to Denver’s spot at minimum to get a choice of the two that are left. Buffalo has way more ammo and the jets are at pick six. Buffalo has 2 firsts 2 seconds and I think two thirds . We don’t have the ammo to have a better offer. And buffalo will offer whatever it takes to get their guy.

    Everything depends on reality today. Where does Cousins land? Will Foles be moved? Is Cleveland all in on Taylor for 2 years, while building a defense? Is Tannehill expendable or better said, moveable?

    One thing is for certain, due to the assets of several teams, draft night 1-2 will or should be fun.

    Honestly I wouldn't mind Vita Vea either ... kid is going to be a stud. Different type of player to Suh though.

    Anyone thinking Jordan Phillips can fill in the 85% of defensive snaps that Suh played is misjudging things. Phillips is more of a 25% of snaps guy. Most DT's only play about 50% to 60%, so not only was Suh devastating, he was also very unusual in that he was on the field for 85% of defensive snaps and never missed a game. That's a lot of double-teams to command. If we don't bring in a stud DT, forget about our defense generating much pass rush. Quinn opposite Wake is good ... but offenses can double team both if they only have to single each DT. G+T on one, T+TE on the other. We have nobody to generate inside pressure or collapse the pocket.

    Not sure if signing a recently injury prone, high cap replacement is really the answer, or trading that is

    Be hard to land a QB if Kirk Cousins goes to the Vikings. Find out soon. Hope the Jets
