Default Miami Dolphins Draft and FA possibilities

Pre-Combine and pre-decisions made about the Well's report. Here is a FA and Draft scenario. The Miami Dolphins probably do tons of these throughout this draft process. To be honest no one has any idea how this will go down until they get to their pick. The Dolphins may have some idea but won't really know 100% til it's time.

Free Agency

Salary CAP space to start 32.5 Million approx. We could use more space for this offseason and need to do 1 of the 3 with some players.
Re-negotiate salary
Cut
Trade

Matt Moore may be a prime candidate for 1 of the 3 above. His cap hit is 5.5 mil, 1.5 mil if cut and 0 if traded.
Mike Wallace, re-negotiate. Cap hit is $17,250,000.00.
Dannell Ellerbe, re-negotiate Cap hit is $7,425,000.00.
Philip Wheeler, re-negotiate Cap hit is $6,400,000.00.
Brian Hartline, re-negotiate Cap hit is $6,210,000.00
D. Patterson, Cap hit is $5,400,000.00 and $0 dead cap money if cut. He could be re-negotiated or cut and I would seriously consider the cutting or trading him since we have Davis and Taylor up and coming.

While I am not sure any of those guys above are willing to re-negotiate they would be approached about it. BUT just between Moore and Patterson that is another 10 mil in cap space.

Trade J.Martin save 1 mil cap space, if released we lose 900K cap/dead space. I would take a 7th. or a league minimum practice squad player that would cost 0 if released.

With the above in mind here are my 3 scenarios.

Sign big ticket LT Brandon Albert, sign Grimes and Soliai or Starks. I would say Soliai so that the flexability to move to a 3-4 is possible. Resign Keller to another 1 yr.

Draft,
1st round = Odell Beckham Jr. - IMO we go with a WR due to the fact he gives us a better chance to score more points in the red zone and overall. Last year I believe we still averaged less than 20 points a game. We need people that help us score points. Beckham gives us just that.

2nd round, Austin Seferian-Jenkins TE Washington
3rd round, Martavis Bryant WR Clemson
4th round, Seantrel Henderson OT Miami
5th round, Jon Halapio OG Florida
6th round, ???
7th round, ???

Default

Another draft could go with a trade down to gather another pick in the 3rd. The Browns move ahead of Arizona to get Carr or Manziel. Miami get their 3rd rounder and pick 26 in the first.

Then at 26 we take Sua-Filo.

Cool

Looks like I got 3 of the 4 FA's signed. I would imagine most people knew about Albert and Grimes. I wasn't expecting or knew much about the Mitchell signing but from what I've ready I am looking forward to seeing what this guy can do.

Keller the only not signed and I'm not sure they will sign him. I would sign him to another yr prove it contract and see what happens. He can play.

I would also like to see us sign at least 1 other FA OL.
