  1. Mock Draft 4.0 / 2 Rounds

    Sucks for us Dolfans to miss out on the top 3 picks in this draft, but Herbert is a nice consolation prize. All around a really nice draft for us in rounds 1-2. I'm not sure about the Epenesa pick, but a lot of mocks have him going much higher, personally I see a guy with no explosion but great size.....I wouldn't touch him until round 2 but I do realize I'm the minority on this.
  2. Oh my, did you guys see this?

    The present may be bleak....but the future is bright. I finally have hope that we have Coaches that can teach, A GM that can bring in talent, and an Owner that is allowing it to all come together the right way.

    The difference between teams that landed a QB in later rounds and had success and teams that drafted QBs early and had success is Luck. The teams that hit on QBs late just got lucky......none of those teams expected those later picked QBs to turn out to be as good as they were/are. Unfortunately we can’t plan to be lucky.

    If we don’t get the top overall pick and end up drafting at 2 or 3 then I think we have some options. While I believe Tua is certainly the #1 pick in 2020 and the most talented QB in the draft, but he isn’t a sure thing like Luck or Elway. That being said we have some options if we can’t land Tua. I’m OK with drafting Hebert or Burrow by packaging some picks to move into the top 10, providing we select Chase Young with our earliest pick. I’m also OK with trading away a pick or a package of 2020 picks to the right team for a 2021 1st round selection, which would be used to target a 2021 QB such as Trevor Lawrence. Additionally I wouldn’t count Jalen Hurts out as a 1st round QB. He is playing really well for Oklahoma and maybe even better than Mayfield.
  5. Dolphins have traded......

    Thanks......it is a bit awkward being a Finsfan right now. We aren’t used to having hope for the future LOL!!! I’m looking forward to the 2020 draft so much that I might even make the trip to Vegas. Grier has proven that he isn’t bad at drafting players so I expect us to have no surprises with our first 2 picks and to look for players that are currently projected top 15, but fall for sketchy reasons, with our 3rd and 4th picks.
  6. Dolphins have traded......

    I agree. Nice move by Grier!!! Way to get something for a player that was going to walk.
  7. Dolphins have traded for.....

    Rams CB Aqib Talib and a 5th round pick. Appears to be a Rams salary dump. We get a 2020 5th round pick and the rights to Talib for a 2022 7th round pick. Best scenario is the 33 year old CB provides us with a 1-2 year CB stopgap opposite of Howard. https://www.yardbarker.com/nfl/articles/rams_trade_five_time_pro_bowl_cb_aqib_talib_to_dolphins/s1_14819_30391787
  8. Dolphins have traded......

    Kenyan Drake to the Cardinals for a 2020 6th rounder that can become a conditional 5th rounder. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001070751/article/dolphins-trading-rb-kenyan-drake-to-cardinals
  9. Who's going to be the Dolphins starting QB in three years?

    That would be awesome!!! I would love to have a Tua + Jeudy combo without giving up any extra picks to make it happen.

    I would love to have Chase Young on our Defense, but unless we have 2 top 5 picks I don’t see us drafting him. We have to go QB with our first pick, but after that we have so many needs it really should be BPA.
  11. Right now we are looking at drafting somewhere between #1 to #3 and it would have to be a HUGE payload of picks for us to give up on drafting Tua or Herbert. I would think that for us to move down it would take a 2020 1st and 2nd, a 2021 1st and 2nd at minimum, more if we are moving outside of top 10. Moving down from pick 1 or 2 and possibly pick 3 would be allowing a team to grab one of the two best QB prospects this draft. Also we would probably need those 2021 picks to package and move up for Lawrence, who IMO isn’t as polished as Tua. If LSU’s QB Joe Burrow continues having the type of season he has had so far then he will probably pass Herbert as the number 2 QB prospect for 2020. Against the only top 25 team he has faced this season so far, #9 Texas, he threw for 471 yds, 79.5% completion, 4TDs to 1 INT and a 209.7 QBR in a 45-38 LSU win. I’ll be watching when he faces the Gators defense this Saturday.
  12. I’m all for the tank for Tua. I would be OK with Hebert as well. I think both have demonstrated they have the potential to be NFL Franchise type QB’s......although I see Tua as being significantly better than Hebert at this point.
  13. Minkah to the Steelers for a 2020 First round pick. https://www.yardbarker.com/nfl/articles/dolphins_trade_cornerback_minkah_fitzpatrick_to_steelers/s1_14819_30017888 Wow, that’s 3 first round picks for 2020. QB, OT, Edge......2 second rounders, OG, OT or Edge.
  14. Jesse Davis signs 3yr/15M extension

    Well while watching the Ravens game I notice we are playing Davis at LT, which gives him a years head start at playing that position for the Left Handed passer we are likely to draft in 2020.
  15. Week 1: Baltimore Ravens @ Miami Dolphins

    Well after one half of football, it looks like this rebuild / tank is going even better than I anticipated. I didn’t expect the Defense to be this bad though.......Wow and I thought Burke sucked as a DC. Preston Williams is looking like a keeper though.......
