And when DVP comes up lame or injured or whatever, and there's no one left to take the safeties back, suddenly Tannehill doesn't have open targets, and Ajayi doesn't have lanes, then what?

Julius Thomas ain't the answer. He could be another Cameron.


I do hear the Hightower play. I do. I won't be furious if it happened or anything, but again, when are we gonna stop taking 1 step forward, 1 step back, 1 step forward, 1 step back.

Like you stated (I'm summarizing), you need the threat. You do that with the guy you drafted running a 4.3 (Jakeem Grant). Not for nothing but Free Agency is an option as well. DJax is 30/31 will be cheaper option with the exact same attributes. If they want, Josh Gordon could be an option although I doubt Gase would sign off on someone like that. Cordarrelle Patterson and Ted Ginn are also options. All are cheaper options than Stills while being able to

But with Grant, If he is 1 v 1 from the slot and safeties don't respect what he is doing he will take the top off. 1 year of work under Gase with Tannehill. You say it's 1 step forward, 1 step back. I disagree...
Was the problem on offense last year? Mostly no, OLine beat up hurt Ajayi ultimately... he can only break SO many tackles, Tannehill going down ultimately hurt.

What absolutely killed the Dolphins was not being able to stop the run. Secondary, even the patched secondary, played well enough. Pass Rush DLine was decent enough, the team was built to rush the passer last year. Unfortunately they couldn't stop a one legged juggler rushing for more that 7 yards a pop.

My entire point from the beginning is where would I allocate funds right this second? Put that into a 3rd option receiver, whom I'd LOVE to keep do not misread what I'm saying, possibly a 4th option with JT coming in and will for sure be a huge red zone target... or put that into a high caliber, captain of a super bowl winning team, starting MLB that can rush the QB and damn well play great behind Suh/Jordan? He will also force Kiko to go to a more natural weak side linebacker position fixing two spots of a defense that was so incredibly bad?

I don't agree it's one step forward and one back, it's strengthening a huge weakness that held the Dolphins back while continuing to coach up players that are drafted and are on the roster.

If the Dolphins lose wide receiver Kenny Stills to free agency, they will sign a veteran pass-catcher in the coming weeks, per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. Miami isn’t certain that 2016 third-round pick Leonte Carroo is ready to take over as the club’s third receiver, per Jackson, who points to Ted Ginn, Terrance Williams, Aldrick Robinson, and Marquise Goodwin as potential options.

Marquise Goodwin though... that could be fun.

Downgrades all around. I don't resigning Kenny Stills at his asking price is the best move, but we have to move quick.

I like Stacy Cooley in the draft. But I guarantee he'll be a sleeper for a lot of teams.

FS may also be a priority for us too. Isa is questionable for 2017 season.

Let's do free agency first.

Ultimately I want Kenny Stills, 6 to 8 million range with it hopefully being the former.

Defense in general is a need.
DTx2
DEx2
MLB
SLB
Nickle
Safety

All needs.

Add in another TE and two Guards.

Buckle up kids.

Trade down, get whatever for it. Pick up (in order) Foster (IF he falls because of reports), Derek Barnett, Reddick, or Taco.

Obviously depending on free agency, will have a better idea after the next week.

Supposedly Dolphins were in the market for some big time corner.

Also supposed to have great defensive signings that'll make people happy.

We'll see.

Isn't this draft supposed to be deep at corner?

Also, is Lawrence Timmons a good pick up at 30 y/o?

Timmons averages a 100 tackles a year and never misses a game.

He probably has 4 or 5 good years left. Dude was a monster a FSU and don't know why that would change.

Lastly yes, this draft is hella deep at Corner. That was just a rumor from a couple weeks ago, take it for what it is. Just a rumor.

Anthony Fasano was graded NFL’s best run-blocking tight end in 2016 (88.1). Dion Sims, who is solid, was 41st, right behind Julius Thomas.

Minter, Timmons, Hightower still on the market.

DTs and Guards as well.

I'm assuming Dolphins get all of the above (LB, OGx2, DT, DE) within the next few days.
