-Draft Darren McFadden (the best player in the draft) with the first overall pick. If Ronnie Brown is healthy, great. They would have a solid tandem in the backfield.
-Draft an OT in the second round (Ryan Clady/Barry Richardson/Chris Williams)
-Draft a WR in the 3rd round (Dorian Bryant/D.J. Hall/Keenan Burton)
-Because of the hiring of Bill Cowher they would have an upper hand at signing FA's Alan Faneca (OG), and Max Starks (OT).
-Sign WR Bryant Johnson (Arizona)
-Make an attempt to aquire FA Asante Samuel or Marcus Trufant
I have to say, this is absolutely horrible. Bill Cowher has already said he is not coming back to coaching and he would clash with Bill Parcells alot.
Why on earth would we trade another 2nd round pick for yet another teams washed up QB? I'm sicking of taking people retreds.
Here's my hopes for the team:
I say Parcells brings in a coach who he has experience with and thinks alot the same lines as and can work with. Josh McDaniels the OC from New England would be a great choice. McDaniels is a younger guy (ala Lane Kiffin) that would work well with Parcells as they use the same philosophy. McDaniels can be this teams long term HC and seems to have the mentality to oversee the team and allow someone else to call the plays, something Cameron doesn't have. I think McDaniels would be a great coach.
Maurice Carthon was an OC under Parcells in Dallas and could be a solid choice to run it again here in Miami with McDaniels and Parcells. Carthon's huge, stout OLs along with McDaniels creative pass plays could form a nice offensive core.
On the Defensive side, Parcells has long been a 3-4 guy. However, due to our personel and hybrid system that is in place, I could see us going after a Ron Rivera from SD. Rivera is considered a 4-3 guy but has experience with the 3-4 being under Ted Cottrell and Buddy Ryan.
For GM, Parcells will likely make an offer to his son-in-law Scott Pioli. That's 50-50 at best. I could also see him taking a run at Phil Savage and if nothing else fails, Randy Mueller could be given another shot.
I see alot of vets getting gutted in favor of youth and other vets to fit the systems that will be put in place.
I can guarantee you that you will see us land a QB in the offseason.
For the draft, I will definately see us trying to trade down and I expect we can find a partner that will want McFadden. It would not surprise me at all to see Altanta deal a 1st, 2nd and a 2009 1st to move up a few spots to get him.
I could then see our draft going something like this:
1-Chris Long, DE
2a-Jeff Otah, OT
2b- Jonathan Goff, MLB
2c- Craig Steltz, S
3- D.J. Hall, WR
4- Robert Felton, OG
6- Henry Smith, DT
7- Coye Francies, CB
