  • 2010 Draft Discussion

    Hey guys i know this forum is dead but i figure with it being draft season and all we might have more people frequenting the site and it might be good to get some discussion going about our Phins draft...

    So what does every think our team needs are and who are some guys you like?

    Personally i'd list our top five team needs as follows:
    1. ILB - Crowder is the only guy on our roster that is worthy of a starting position and he has been injured and isnt a playmaker. Ayodele and Torbor are serviceable but neither belong in the starting lineup.
    2. OLB - I originally had this as more of a secondary need but after the release of Roth and the likely release of Joey Porter, ILB and OLB are more 1a and 1b. Even if we bring back JT, he isn't an every down guy anymore so we'll need someone to rotate with him opposite Cameron Wake.
    3. WR/TE - Chad Henne needs some targets to throw to. its obvious that we have lots of '2s' and '3s' on the roster but we need someone who can legitimately threaten to have a 1000 yard/8 TD season.
    4. FS - we have four safeties on the roster and all four are better suited to play SS than FS. if we just had a S that could actually cover a TE last year...
    5. NT - Soliai was decent last year and may be the answer and i could see us bringing Ferguson back for a year just to have a rotation and make sure Soliai is the answer but barring Hampton, Franklin, or Wilfork coming to town, I'd bet we draft someone to rotate with Soliai hoping that one of them becomes dominant.

    chris clemons was a rookie for a very difficult position to get down mentally in your first year. We have our FS already. Even if for some reason he cant improve, we could slide Will Allen to FS to try to extend his career. FS to me is off the board.

    Agree with the rest but I would add on the bottom of that list RB and OL. RB because Ricky has only one year left and OL because we need to add depth

      What do you guys think the chances are that the Dolphins select Terrance Cody in the first round? From everything I've read the coaching staff is infatuated with him and he would fill feel a need for you guys.

        i think Sparano is a fan of his but he's also said some negative things about him. he has said he'd need to lose some weight and that he'd only be a 2 down player for us right now.

        as of now, i dont think we'd take him at 12 but if we traded back or if he loses some weight and shows up at the combine in better shape i think he could work his way up our board. as much as the coaching staff liked him this week, i think it would be hard to convince Parcells not to take a LB this year given his infatuation with LBers and how big of a need it is for us.

          Yeah I dont see us taking Cody that early. Maybe if we can trade down. I think LB is gonna be the position that we are gonna target with our early picks. Please Baby Jesus let Ronaldo McClain be there.

          Props to fenikz on the awesome sig

            If McClain isn't there who do you think you guys take in the first round?

              if mcclain isnt there, i'd hope we'd give Dez Bryant a look first and if both are gone, probably a rushbacker, be it Kindle (personal fav), JPP, Everson Griffen, Derrick Morgan, etc. Some sleepers would be Taylor Mays (Parcells loves big DBs), Dan Williams (NT and we coached him at the senior bowl), and CJ Spiller (i don't think RB is a real need but Ricky and ronnie will both be in the final years of their contracts and cobbs and ronnie are both coming off injury so i wouldn't be entirely shocked as Spiller and Lex Hilliard would be a great one-two punch in the future and spiller could replace Ronnie as a wildcatalyst).

                I will cry if you guys land McClain, I'd hate to play him twice a year.

                  McClain/Dez/Griffen/Kindle is my board for the first rounder.

                  And I don't see any way you can take FS "off the board" It was by far the worst position on the team last year. I like Clemons but there is no way you put everything in his basket, especially with how deep safety is this year.

                  That is correct comahan

                    Nope you guys get Tebow.

                    Tebow + Pat White = Win.

                      Mays/McClain/Spiller/Gresham

                      All of those guys would make Miami a much better team, I've watched plenty of your games this year, and would hate to face any of those guys. You could definitely use some WR help, but Gresham could fill in admirably from the TE position, maybe give you guys a possession receiver to take pressure off of Ginn.

                        That looks good to me, my big board right now is McClain/Dez/Kindle right now. I haven't seen enough of Griffen to make an opinion on him yet but from what i understand he group up idolizing Suggs and mirrors his game to Suggs' so i wouldn't have an issue with that. I am really scared of JPP though...

                        and i completely agree with the the FS sentiment, i'd love to get Nate Allen in the second to really push Clemons and give us a true FS option.

                          Well, I feel that draft/offseason #3 in the "Tuna" regime is the most crucial. There are some critical spots to fill on both sides of the ball, especially on D.

                          In order, I would rate the defensive needs as:

                          OLB, ILB, FS, NT

                          They need a big time pass rusher. Is Wake that guy? Not sure, but I liked what I saw in limited action last yr. A Jason Pierre-Paul on the other side might be the ticket. Crowder is serviceable, the others are just guys at ILB. McClain might be a glove like fit or you might be able to get a Brandon Spikes lower in rd 1 or even in rd 2. Eric Berry would be a dream come true at FS, but that is not happening. Still, Earl Thomas, Chad Jones and some others are intriguing. Finally at NT, I think they can get another yr from Ferguson and develop a replacement. Obviously Dan Williams is a strong name, even Cody is a guy you may consider if he made it to rd 2. Perhaps even a mid to late rd guy to throw in the mix.

                          Now, throw in potential veteran replacements at these positions.. What about Antrel Rolle at FS or Dansby at ILB? Both would make the draft need drop tremendously at each of their respective positions.. Guess we have to wait til FA to see what happens.

                          On offense, the 2 most glaring needs are at WR and TE. They need a #1 WR. Is that Dez Bryant or do you wait til later and hope for a Lafell, Benn or Thomas from Ga Tech? They need a pass catching TE to be the David Martin for 2010. Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Dennis Pitta and Jimmy Graham are all names that could fill this role.

                          Antonio Bryant is a FA and Boldin is definitely available by trade. What do you do? Myself, I keep the picks, sign Bryant and hope that he reverts to his 2008 form. I draft the TE between rds 2 and 4 to be Fasano's backup and the receiving option.

                          An ideal offseason for me would be to sign Rolle (if he is cut) and Bryant and use the draft's first 4 rds to add to the D with 3 of the picks and a TE with the other. At this very early stage, my favorite choices at # 12 would be Pierre-Paul or McClain if they are available.

                          Thoughts?

                            Pretty much a lot of the same sentiments as most of us. I would love to bring Antrel back to Miami but with the uncapped year, i doubt he goes anywhere. No thanks for Antonio Bryant as he has had one really good year and has a poor history with Parcells already so i dont see that happening. My favorite guys out in FA this year would be all the NTs, i really hope one of them hits the market (hopefully wilfork) and we can lock down that position in FA although i would bet if none of them do that we bring ferguson back.

                            how do you guys think i'm doing in the forum mock so far?

                            1. Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas
                            2a. Traded back with Houston and picked up an extra 4
                            2b. Terrence Cody, NT, Alabama
                            3. Eric Decker, WR, Minnesota
                            4a. Donald Butler, ILB, Washington
                            4b. Kendrick Lewis, FS, Mississippi

                            I'm targeting depth with all the other picks (prolly a OT and C/OG maybe another OLB). I'm prolly gonna try to package the two KC picks to get back into the fifth round to get a TE.
