At No. 16, would you rather see the Dolphins trade up and target someone specific in the first round, losing picks and/or players in the process...

or....

At No. 16, trade down to later in the first round, and perhaps pick up another pick or two, perhaps even a 2nd or 3rd?

Trading Up For Huff Would Be Great ...

Or If We Don't Sign Lavar Maybe Trade Up For Aj Hawk .. That Would Be Awesome

Trading up is not realistic because we have nothing to offer to trade up. We definetly don't have any picks to offer. With needs at OLB and in the defensive backfield, it makes more sense to trade down to collect more picks. If we can drop down to the late 1st round and pick up a second, we could grab some very good quality players that would help us right away.

I say stay at 16 unless we get an offer we can't refuse.

My sentiments, exactly... There are a lot of teams out there with two 2s, and one team atleast with three 3s, yes?

Trade down. We need to get more picks for the draft because we only have 6 and 3 of them are in the 7th round.

down....too much depth on defense in this draft to trade up. Better off stock piling picks because the LBs/safeties/corners in the 2nd and 3rd rounds arent DRASTICALLY worse than those in the first. example: is bobby carpenter (1st round LB) DRASTICALLY better than....Abdul Hodge? D'qwell Jackson? Demeco Ryans? Another example: is Jimmy Williams DRASTICALLY better than Cromartie? is Jason Allen drastically better than Jonathon Joseph? etc etc

I'd like to re-coup the 2nd rder we lost. So unless we get a shot at a guy who is just too good to pass-up ala Huff, I say trade down. Plus it makes the draft more fun to watch.

trade down, get more picks, pickup more lineman (offensive and defensive). No to any qbs this year, no to any RB, Yeah maybe a corner, yeah maybe a wr, but then all lineman. we need to build our lines, control the line and you control the game

no way we trade up for hawk. he is going top 5 possibly and we dont have the picks to get him even though he would be a nice pick. i want to trade down and possibly pick up carpenter depending on what happens with arrington. if we stay where we are at, i like either greenway or jackson.

trade down the only way to get MORE picks is to go down not UP.

OUr defensive line and starting defense last year were both the oldest in the entire league!!!

I love our defense, but I also love the chance to inject some youth into our defensive and offensive teams for that matter.

Whatever happens, Saban will do what is best for the fins

Trade down if you find a good suitor.If we could pick upa second or third that would be great, if not stay where we are and draft Ol or db.

no one's giving up their own first and second just to pick No. 16 overall... not that I can imagine...

If we can get good value in a trade down... jump all over it... we are short in picks, and it would allow us to stack up in the 2nd and 3rd rounds... where Saban can get some good gems...

if we get a chance to stockpile picks, trade down. This is a deep draft, but right now we're in a position where the BPA will be players we don't need.

If we get the oppurtunity to trade up and draft Mike Huff, I will not complain. Otherwise, I'd rather gain more picks than lose picks.

I can't figure out who we could trade down with that works. Whoever it would be would be in the market for HB.

I hear many people saying 'Trade up' but who should we trade up for?More importantly, what do they trade up WITH? The second went for Culpepper and a first and a third isn't going to get them much action. And I hope they don't plan on mortgaging the future.

Yeah what he said.

Trade down and pick any two of the following:

Simpson or Whitner
Mangold
Carpenter
Joseph

Worst Poll question in the Draft forum! I mean wow considering this draft is loaded with talent like no other I say trade down! I mean we will really tell if this draft was good three or four years from now, But this draft looks amazing and trading down for us is ideal!
