  1. I'm really interested in seeing Fitzpatrick next to Jone at safety. Having two great safeties should make a huge difference.
  2. Lions trade Akeem Spence to Miami

    That's pretty good value for a 7th rounder. No risk involved and it fills a need.
  3. DOLPHINS PICK THREAD

    I'm fine with that when he's creating huge mismatches on offense and forcing teams to pick their poison.
  4. DOLPHINS PICK THREAD

    Copied from another thread... It's a long post so read the last sentence for the main point.S Minkah Fitzpatrick - A+. This guy would be a top 5 pick in a normal draft that doesn't have a ton of QBs. He has potential to be a perennial Pro Bowler and face of the defense for years. He has an amazing football IQ. Nick Saban said he's the best player he ever coached. Miami did not expect him to fall to 11.TE Mike Gesicki - A. This guy has elite athleticism. We finally got a legit weapon in the middle of the field. He's a bad blocker, but we won't ask him to. It's about damn time we get a legit TE.LB Jerome Baker - B. This guy is really fast and fills what we are looking for in a LB. A guy who can actually cover. He can also play special teams. He'll fit in the rotation. He reunites with McMillan. They wanted Leonard or Warner but they didn't fall to them so he was the next best player that's similar to them.TE Durham Smythe - B- or C+. It's a bit high for a pure blocking TE, but this guy is a legit blocker. Notre Dame didn't use him much outside blocking so IDK how good he will be outside that. But he perfectly compliments Gesicki so we can finally run 2 TE sets. Other fans don't like the pick, but I think he's the kind of guy who will contribute to the team for quite a while. He reminds me of Fasano.RB Kalen Ballage - B+. This guy has a lot of potential. He won't have to do a ton at first behind Drake and Gore. He fits what Gase wants a RB. By the 4th round in the draft, it's worth going for the potential despite the concern he doesn't play as well as he should. CB Cornell Armstrong - C. He's a feisty slot CB with ball skills who will compete with McCain. He reminds me of a Brent Grimes (without a crazy wife). He might not be a starter or even make the team at first, but who knows? There were better players on the board at the time, but I also think you can never have enough CBs. He's a guy that will be easy to root for. We'll see.LB Quentin Poling - C+. I like this pick late in the draft, but there were better guys on the board. He's another speedy cover LB. He was Ohio's leading tackler. He has holes in his game, but I think he will provide good depth and contribute on special teams right away. I like his attitude from what I've seen on Twitter. K Jason Sanders - I can't grade this one. By the 7th round it doesn't really matter all that much if the guys pan out or not, but this one is more risky because he could be our kicker this season. This guy was a stud his junior year (only missing 1 kick - 93%) and then had a rough senior year (only made 73% of this FGs). He has an amazing leg so he'll be great for kicking touchbacks and he seems to be good at onside kicks, but hopefully he overcomes whatever bothered him his senior year. Fortunately, Rizzi is one of the best ST coaches in the league so I trust what they see in him. I would have preferred Pinerio. This is an A draft for me from from day 1 to day 2. I love the first 3 picks. The Dolphins finally addressed their biggest need that have hurt them for years - plays in the middle of the field. They can't cover TEs, they are super slow in the middle of the field so quick passes murder them, and Tannehill has never had a legitimate athletic big TE to throw to on 3rd downs. The defense has talent but it hasn't shown as much because teams continuously exploit them in the middle of the field. Fitzpatrick next to Jones with having McMillan back and running a bunch of different packages with McDonald as a safety/LB hybrid, Fitz as a nickel CB, not having to rely on Alonso to cover (he sucks at it), and so on will make a TREMENDOUS difference. I'm really getting excited about this secondary and the LB core is starting to shape up. They got tremendously faster on defense. Day 3 is very iffy with me. Smythe is a bit of a reach and more of just a blocking TE, but he will contribute right away. Armstrong is probably just a camp body right now. Poling is just a back up and ST player right now. And Sanders could be awful. But if 5 players in this draft contribute, it's a successful draft. My two concerns are QB and DT. I'd rather have Fitz than a QB. If Miami sucks, I'd still rather have Fitz and get a QB next year. If Tanny comes back and they are good, then having Fitz is even more awesome. I didn't love the rest of the QBs in the draft so I don't have an issue with passing on these guys. But Tanny is 30 and coming off an injury so it is a concern. The coaching staff likes David Fales, but I don't feel comfortable with him as a backup. Osweiler isn't reliable either. I don't think a rookie QB, especially one drafted mid to late round would save the season anyways if Tanny got hurt.Miami already has a bunch of young talented DTs, but they really need a veteran. I don't have an issue with passing on a DT because a veteran is needed more than another mid to late young guy. Until we get one, it's a concern. It doesn't matter how good and fast our 2nd and 3rd level are if we can't stop the run up the middleThe first 4 guys will contribute right away. Ballage and Poling will contribute in ways and could develop into future studs. Sanders could be our starting kicker. So it's an A, A-, or B+. Either way, I really love this draft. TLDR: Miami got faster and fixed their biggest weakness on defense: the middle of the field. They finally got legitimate TEs for their QB. They might have found their kicker and Ballage could be a great weapon with Drake. Poling could be a future starter or key rotational piece. They got a lot of guys who can contribute immediately. I really liked this draft despite the iffy day 3.

  6. Day 3 Draft Discussion Thread

    At this point, they are just taking a chance on the potential. For this season, he just needs to block and occasionally make a play when in the game. Drake and Gore will get most of the carries. If he doesn't fight with the coaches and have temper tantrums, if he can actually block, and if he doesn't have knees that are ticking time bombs, then I'm happy with him over Ajayi. I'm not saying Ajayi is trash, but he had issues here.
  7. Day 3 Draft Discussion Thread

    What do you mean?
  8. Day 3 Draft Discussion Thread

    So Drake, Gore, and Ballage. That's our RB tandem this year.
  9. Day 3 Draft Discussion Thread

    Miami has another 4th round pick so if they skip a DT there then Miami definitely doesn't view DT as a priority.
  10. Day 3 Draft Discussion Thread

    I'm glad Miami finally looked at TE in this draft. They usually completely ignore it which is why the offense struggles so much on 3rd down. We never have a guy to throw to in the middle of the field.
  11. Day 3 Draft Discussion Thread

    We have young guys like Jordan Philips, Vincent Taylor, Cameron Malveaux, and Davon Godchaux so it's not a major need, but I would like another. I think we need a vet before the season starts.
  12. Day 3 Draft Discussion Thread

    Wow we double downed on a TE. It is a huge hole on the team. Arguably the biggest. Or it was.
  13. Day 3 Draft Discussion Thread

    I'm assuming Miami is looking at a DT right now.
  14. Day 3 Draft Discussion Thread

    If not for his injury, he would have been drafted much higher. He is explosive.
  15. Day 3 Draft Discussion Thread

    Congratz to Herndon and Walton! I'm going to miss them. Best of luck in the NFL.
