#14 WR Devante Parker - We need a #1 WR and Parker fits the bill, he is the complete package, while not explosive like Kevin White, really with Tannehill as our QB we don't even need our #1 WR to be that explosive since as we all know he struggles with accuracy downfield. Parker is tall smooth polished can make leaping grabs and is perhaps the best red zone WR target in this draft. I know his availability is iffy since the Rams Vikings and Browns could all take him but if he is available we should just take him and not overthink things.

#47 DB Eric Rowe - He can play corner or FS and we might need him to do both.

#114 OG/OT Jamil Douglas - He played well for Arizona State and will be a better fit at OG in the NFL but could play OT in a pinch since he played it in college.

#149 LB Jake Ryan - He can play ILB or OLB in a 4-3 defense and would at least give us some depth and help on special teams.

#150 RB David Cobb - I hope he is still available here. He will be what Moreno was supposed to be last year.

#191 DE/DT Corey Crawford - Some depth for the D-line.]]>

Subject: LOL @ Dave Hyde - by: cuchulainn

1. Sometimes you just have to say the obvious when listening to the inanity around: Sedate me if the Dolphins take a guard with the 14th pick overall. Just sedate me. I don't even know where to start with this. But here's a good point: There are only two of 64 starting NFL guards drafted higher than 14th. Here they are:

Tennessee's Chance Warmack, drafted 10th

Arizona's Jonathan Cooper, drafted seventh.

These aren't the blueprints to follow. Arizona made the playoffs for the first time in five years in 2014 and was a first-round loser. Tennessee hasn't made the playoffs since 2008.

And why haven't they? Because their drafting of guards high in the first round is indicative of teams not understanding how to win. Look at the Super Bowl teams. New England's starting guards in their win, Dan Connolly and Ryan Wendell, were both undrafted. Seattle's J.R. Sweezy was a seventh-round pick and James Carpenter a first-round pick in 2011 - the 25th overall choice.

But the Dolphins are being picked by several mock drafts like Pro Football Talk (Florida tackle D.J. Humphries) and the NFL Network's Charles Davis (LSU tackle La'el Collins) to take a tackle and move him to guard at least in the opening part of their careers.

Let me heard the chorus: "But the Cowboys took tackle Zach Martin at 16th overall last year, moved him to guard and made the playoffs."

Let's see. The Cowboys had a Pro Bowl receiver (Dez Bryant), tight end (Jason Witten), running back (DeMarco Murray) and quarterback (Tony Romo). Do the Dolphins have any of those?

Completely agree... Zach Martin was a Guard in college. People are arguing not just to take a guard at @14, or trading up higher for one, but take a Tackle that high and retrain him as a guard...

If anyone needs more reasons not to draft an OLman in the 1st: Omar wants an OLman in the 1st...

That should be the death knoll for that. ]]>

Subject: Build an elite defense? - by: virginiadolfan
Lets say we can trade down with the Eagles to #20 and we get their 3rd and 4th round picks.

R1 DT Malcolm Brown - Our defensive front would be a terror to deal with, probably the best in the NFL.

R2 DB Eric Rowe - He can play corner or FS. Mayock ranks him as the 5th best DB in the draft.

R3 RB Jay Ajayi - I don't think there is an OG LB or WR worth taking here so we get a weapon for our offense.

R4 LB Ben Heeney - Potential starting ILB.

R4 OG Jamil Douglas - Competes with Dallas Thomas to start at LG. He might be able to play some OT in a pinch since he played it in college.

R5 FS Adrian Amos - We could use another FS.

R5 WR Stefon Diggs - I know a lot of people here don't like him but I have a good feeling about him.

R6 WR Deontay Greenberry - We double down on WR.]]>

Subject: LaRon Byrd - by: Dolfan1

Byrd played four years for the University of Miami, where he caught 106 passes for 1,254 yards and scored seven touchdowns.

Last year, Byrd spent five weeks impressing Dolphins coaches while on the team's practice squad before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury in early December.

The Dolphins placed Byrd, who is 6-foot-4, 205 pounds and runs a 4.46 in the 40-yard dash, on injured reserve with a practice squad designation.

He was an unrestricted free agent Miami wanted to re-sign, but couldn't until he passed his physical, which happened earlier this week.

Now Byrd will join a young receiving corp that features Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, Rishard Matthews, Matt Hazel, the team's 2014 sixth-round pick, and two newcomers, Michael Preston and Tyler McDonald.

After leaving UM, Byrd was originally signed by the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted free agent in 201, and played in four games as a rookie before being placed on injured reserve due to concussion symptoms.

Last season he spent time with the Dallas Cowboys and Cleveland Browns, making one appearance with the Browns before being released on Oct. 3. He joined the Dolphins shortly afterward and will now battle to make the 53-man roster or earn a practice squad spot.

During his NFL career Byrd has played in five games, but has only caught one pass for eight yards while a member of the Cardinals in 2012.]]>

Subject: Trade down for La'el Collins? - by: virginiadolfan
#20 OG/OT La'el Collins - He can play both OT and OG so that gives us some insurance if Albert isn't ready to start the season. When fully healthy our o-line could be nasty with Albert Collins Pouncey Turner and James.

#47 DB/FS Eric Rowe - Another versatile player who can play both DB and FS. So that gives us some options with Delmas coming back off an injury and not knowing if Jamar Taylor will be ready to step up.

#84 RB Jay Ajayi - He could be one of the biggest steals of the draft. Powerful RB who has some speed and can catch the ball out of the backfield.

#113 WR Tre McBride - We need some help at the WR position.

#114 LB Ben Heeney - A tackling machine.

#149 FS Clatyon Geathers - More safety help.

#150 WR Dezmin Lewis - More WR help.

#191 DE/DT Ray Drew - Some added depth to our D-line]]>

Subject: Shaq Thompson ... safety? - by: cuchulainn

Some similarities as both played everything in HS and College. Shaq entered the draft as an OLB, but played safety, linebacker and running back for the Huskies.

I think FS is more of a need than CB, but not sure about this move. Probably makes perfect sense to Coyles though...

I guess if he doesn't work out at Safety, he could play Will and we move Jenkins to Sam.]]>
