  1. Maybe they wanted a safety and OT in the second round all along, and perfectly disguised it by making the world believe they wanted a RB. Maybe Chris Grier is the Kaiser Souse of NFL GMs.
  2. Love to see this, especially from Cosell... “I’m not going to compare him to Chase Young. He’s in a class of his own. But of all the edge rushers I’ve watched, all the ones considered the top guys, I liked his tape the most, his traits the most." - Greg Cosell on Jaelen Phillips (Miami Herald)
  3. I am pretty sure that when they drafted Austin Jackson they knew he was a project. Then he didnt get to have a preseason, or much of an offseason. I'd pump the brakes on jumping to the conclusion that he was a bad pick.
  4. Some good insight pulled from twitter regarding our RB situation. I love what I see in the first one and agree completely with the second one: Travis Wingfield @WingfieldNFL Gaskin averaged 97.2 YFS/game last year, 11th in the NFL. Every Tuesday (player day off) he was out there getting extra work. Coaches love his work ethic, praised the strides he made in 2020. Jerome Baker told us: anyone who’s been around Myles isn’t surprised by his production Kyle Crabbs @GrindingTheTape Normalize embracing that you can upgrade the running game by infusing two 4.3 WRs to lift the extra safety out of the box and better blockers into the offense just like you can upgrade by adding a new running back.
  5. I only know what I have read on here and a few other spots, but I thought Moering was the premiere safety in this draft. How we feeling about Holland?
  6. I would not be devastated with Smith or Waddle at 6, but to me if Chase and Pitts are gone, you take Sewell there and address the WR spot with the 18 or 36. We have 3 quality starting WRs, and a well-below average OL. Chase is the one WR I would take at 6 personally. The others guys will probably be great pros, but give me the generational OT who looks to me like as close to a cant miss as there is. It isnt as exciting, but the entire offense starts at the OL. 1/2 extra second in the pocket or a hole 2 inches wider to run through could be the difference in a 50 yard TD or no gain.
  7. Surprisingly, per that article the trade value chart indicates that 18/50 should just about do it. For that price, if there is someone at 9 that they truly covet the move may make sense. However, if I am Denver I am not doing that.
  8. This article brings up the possibility of us trading UP from 18 to 9. Interesting. 2 of the top 10 picks would be so much fun! Chase/Slater? Sewell/Smith (Waddle)? https://www.thephinsider.com/2021/4/24/22401377/2021-nfl-draft-rumors-dolphins-looking-to-trade-for-second-top-ten-pick
  9. Speaking Thursday, Broncos GM George Paton revealed he had spoken with Dolphins GM Chris Grier on Wednesday. We will try not to overstate this — it isn't exactly uncommon for GMs to be speaking this time of year — but Paton's admission comes amidst reports the Dolphins would like to trade back down from No. 6, while it would make sense for the quarterback-needy Broncos to move up from No. 9. Paton and Grier also worked together for six years in Miami, so they have a longtime relationship. This is one trade with a real chance of happening between now and next Thursday's first round.

  10. You feel that strongly about a guy who weighs 166 lbs? He was an amazing college player and probably will be a great pro, but that weight is scary. He even looks easy to break. I cannot put him ahead of Chase, for that reason alone. 166 is really small for a 6'1" dude.
  11. I guess the idea of us taking a QB at 6 should not be completely ruled out... https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/04/23/will-dolphins-take-a-quarterback-at-no-6/
  12. If Pitts is there, I think thats an auto-pick. It would be for me. Chase is going to be awesome, and I would be so happy if we picked him - but I believe the OL is a bigger priority. I also think we can get a great WR at 18 or possibly even with one of the 2nds. In a nutshell, I will be very happy with any of Pitts, Chase, or Sewell. I would not be disappointed with a trade down for the right price either. I think the talent is deep in this draft in positions we are coveting, and more picks is great. I am actually really excited about where Grier has put us. Aside from over-drafting a guy like Parsons or Slater at 6, I dont feel like I will be unhappy on draft day this year.
  13. This is a phenomenal analysis - thank you for sharing it. I am still reading through it, but this paragraph leads me to believe that Sewell is the player they should be coveting at 6. If he is gone, I feel like a trade down to a spot where they feel Slater will still be there is the move. It really all starts on the OL, and after reading this analysis, I feel less confident than I did before... "While Miami has not been flush with talent at running back or wide receiver, their real offensive issues all circle back to their offensive line performance. Miami ranked 27th in ESPN’s Pass Block Win Rate (51%) and 23rd in their Run Block Win Rate (69%) metrics. Per Pro Football Focus, Miami collectively graded out 21st in pass blocking and 30th in run blocking."
  14. How would you feel about Sewell? To me, its the least exciting pick, but arguably the smartest pick - if he is not gone at 5.
  15. If thats the case, trade down to 9/10, pick up an extra 2nd and get whichever of those guys drops. But, MOP's point that we really may not need a WR right now is not untrue. If the staff believes in Parker/Fuller/Williams as a viable starting 3, then maybe looking at Sewell or Slater makes more sense. There are a lot of high end WRs apparently in this draft - can still grab a good one with our 2 - or the extra 2 we pick up trading down.
  16. Kelce is 31 years old. Whats Kittle, 25? As someone who made big moves for AJ Green and Jamaal Charles in the twilights of their career right before the wheels fell off, this is not a deal I would even come close to considering unless I was getting Kelce plus the pick. Only way is if you are going all in on 2021.
  17. Not a fan of what you did here. Unless that is Charles Barkley.
  18. My takeaway from this part of the discussion is that it is definitely time to talk to Fuller owners and see what it would take to get him. Sounds like he is worth a mid second or less to a lot of people, and to me, that is a steal.
  19. I can see all of your points and wouldnt argue with any of them. Fuller's deal in Miami is one year though, and regarding Tua (while getting totally off track)...I dont think the FFB community is being fair to him at all. Dude was coming off a terrible injury, had no offseason/preseason - as a rookie QB, and had a sub-par OL and weapons to work with. QB us a tough position - especially given those obstacles. I think he will be fine, and if he isnt, Fuller can leave next year. Henry is a good player - it remains to be seen how he will be used, but they paid him like someone they intend to use a whole lot. Mostert is someone I always have downplayed but whenever he plays he looks pretty studly. I cannot argue with your perception, but feel as a third piece of that deal and at a premium position there is value.
  20. I prefer the players in this one. Fuller is arguably worth a late first by himself and Henry and Mostert are each worth a 2.
  21. Agreed. I think we are in a fantastic spot at 6 and will have a lot of very good options, be it players to draft or teams to trade with. There will be some coveted players available when we are up, and if one is Trey Lance, we could really see some fireworks as teams jocky to get up into that spot and take him. I would not be upset if we took Sewell. I agree with your statements. Its never exciting on draft day when you take an OL in the first round, but man, they are incredibly important to your offense's success and an easy argument can be made that a foundation LT like him is more important than an every-year pro bowl WR.
  22. I think Atlanta will trade out to someone infatuated with Trey Lance. Washington, Denver, or New England. Cinci could take Sewell, Chase, or Pitts. In my opinion, as long as we get Pitts or Chase we should be psyched. Sewell isnt as sexy but would still be a great pick. If Lance is still there at 6 (likely if Atlanta takes Pitts) and we get a great offer for the pick - especially if its Denver and we are only moving down a couple spots I think we do that and grab an extra 2nd or maybe even more if theres a bidding war. If its Denver, we are really only moving down 2 spots because we know they will use 6 on Lance - then 7 and 8 will take players and we would be at 9 - so we still get Waddle or Slater or Smith or maybe even Sewell.
