My opinon is that we do not... If we can get the right nasty:tantrum: personel into our O-Line either through the draft or throught FA then a late round QB can be made to look like a first rounder... What are your thaughts...???:dolphins:

Look, I love an O-line as much as the next guy. But I prefer to get a young QB the first (or next) chance we get in the draft, first round or later round.

I agree with you. With the top 3 QB's probably gone by the time we pick, I'd love for us to go OT or DB.

We need a young QB and Saban will get us one.I don't think he's gonna reach for one but he'll take a QB at some point.

Ozzy rules!!

if cutler isnt available then no we dont need to draft a qb in the 1st rd. i say get a OL or secondary, like that clemson cornerback, and then trade madison and miami's 2nd rd pick to trade up with like the raiders for their 2nd rd pick and a 6th rd pick so miami then can get croyle.

I disagree. That's the mindset we've had since Marino retired. We've been looking for a caretaker QB and as a result we've been unsuccessful in the big games. FA and late round QBs are longshots, much, much longershots than 1st rd QBs.

I do believe that a Great O-line can make a bad QB look good, a good QB look great, and a great QB a HOFer. But I wouldn't want to rely on that if I had a choice.

If Cutler is on the board, we wont (Unless Saban is an idiot) pass on him. It looks unlikely that he will be there though...

We have a better o-line coach than we do a Qb coach,

So I say we draft a QB earlier on if we can

if we can get cutler then we go after him....but i dont think saban will trade up to get him......saban's philosophy is to aquire picks.....we have 9 picks this year, with one already being mannu wright in the 5th

if cutler aint there i say we go for O-line or defense.....michael huff is a guy i like alot...

whitehurst aint looking bad right now

I'd say we have to get a QB in the first 2 rounds, either Cutler in the 1st or Croyle in the 2nd. IMO they are both obtainable and less of projects than guys like Whitehurst.

I cannot disagree with that. I think everyone on our team becomes that much better with a dominating OL. Just look at the Seahawks. Every good HC in football knows that it all starts with a great OL.

After watching the Senior Bowl I don't think Saban will go QB in the 1st round. I think he'll look for a db first but if a good one is not available for him he'll look for the best available which could mean an upgrade on the OL or DL. That is my opinion at the moment. I would look for a young gun in free agency or by trade this year but the scouting combine (which I think is worthless) may help Saban and co. decide otherwise.

I do not think that is the approach one should take. They are going to have all their guys ranked on their board no matter what position. They will draft accordingly. That is why people say dont be surprised to see us draft a LB or S, because they will be the best player on our board at that pick.

I followed last years draft with a list from one of the draft sites. Every pick seemed to be a value pick. Crowder was like 24 on my list but dropped into the 3rd. Saban took him cus he studied him. Matt Roth was a 1st rounder for sure on most peoples boards and we got him at 46. I dont think alot of people had him dropping that far. Saban will draft according to whats on his board and who left them at the alter so to speak. But they will have their board set to the T, you can bank on it. That is why no one should overreact to our picks at first if you do not recognize a name because im sure that Saban will know exactly who he ends up drafting.
