maybe even a top 5 pick. I'm sick of seeing Miami lose like this, they look horrible so we can look forward to getting a top 10 player at least. so who do you want? give up on Daunte and Harrington and take Quinn? or add another playmaker on defense and take Polesney at LB? Go for a big playmaker in Calvin Johnson? or go with what we need most which is OL?

I vote for the LB from PSU or maybe Merriweather if he goes that high

A regular poster here on FH (who I won't mention to avoid drama and keep up with the TOS) had a similar post last season, he guaranteed Miami would have a top 3 pick and everything turned around in a hurry. Of course by the time he said it we were like halfway through the season so your premature post makes me think that there's even more of a possibility of the team getting better.
I put that guy in my sig for a while, a few months actually.

I love Meriweather..great guy, from the U..hes alittle undersized but hes still capable of flying around the field to make plays

i dont see us picking him though..we have alot of needs around the team at the mid-1st round spot..but in a way, he would be a good fit in our Defense IMO

is it any mid-1st round O-Linemans thats coming out?

They need to draft a Cornerback or a linebacker the oline will be fine next year maybe even the end of this year they will be better.

Calvin Johnson would not be a bad pick even though its one of the least needed positions we have. Laron Landry, Brian Brohm, Pozulsny are the only others I have seen last year that impressed me enough to warrant a top five pick but its still too early. Another couple of weeks of play are needed before the order starts solidifying. The problem with drafting offensive linemen is they have more bust potential than any other potential that high. I would rather get our offensive linemen through free agency, but not the bargain basement variety we have been targeting. Lets open up the checkbooks and go after the Hutchinsons and Bentleys. If we're going to draft a lineman than make sure its on the defensive side

you owe it to the franchise to gamble on greatness. That says Calvin Johnson or Dwayne Jarrett...however, Miami might assume that the position is solid enough....


which it isn't.

I may be getting ahead of myself but the Fins need to draft Herman Johnson out of LSU in two years he is 6'7 373.

posluszny hasn't really played like a top 10 pick at all this year. he's been outplayed by his teammate dan connor.

I don't see another 4-12 season, because even Murlakey is still too busy on tricky plays, this will be a developing season, so i expect a 5-0 closing.

I agree with that for sure. I'd even rather trade down and get Levi Brown than Quinn.

If Calvin Johnson and Joe Thomas are both on the board when we pick, I'd have a tough time deciding who my pick of choice would be. With that said, anytime you have a chance to get a franchise LT, you take him (a franchise LT is harder to find than a franchise WR). If we do finish with one of the worst records, it would be nice to trade down a couple of spots and still get either Calvin Johnson or Joe Thomas.

Don't know much about Levi Brown, other than he's projected to go in the middle of the 1st round....

I'd rather have Thomas than Johnson too, but Brown still looks like he could be a franchise LT too, so gaining extra picks and still filling a hole like that would be great.

I'm not sold on him on the other hand Calvin Johnson I think is the best prospect who maybe available for the draft. If Brian Brohm could stay healthy for a full season i'd even argue that he's a better prospect than Quinn.

We could go a number of ways in the first round. I would say take Joe Thomas first. We could solidify the our linebacking core in the middle with Poz and Crowder. If Calvin Johnson or Brady Quinn are available with the pick that we have i say take one of them.

Man I salivate thinking about a Chambers, Calvin Johnson, Derek Hagan receiving corps (with Wes mixed in there as well of course) . . . however with that being said, we aren't terrible at WR, and have 2 guys in Vick and Gibson with potential on our PS as is . . . if we can get a franchise LT, I think that would be ideal. LT/OL with LB being another strong possibility in the first round. Unless there is an absolute steal in the first round at another position. . . this is the way we need to go.

Surely Miami cant think about drafting anything other than someone on the o-line in the first? The only way we should think about other positions in the draft is if we address the offensive line in FA and even then we could take some line bods in the later rounds.

Right now ... Quinn, calvin johnson and adrian peterson are going to be the top 3 picks.. in what order i couldn't tell you ... i have read that joe thomas is closing the gap on the top pick, because he has shown that he is healthy... i also read that thomas is carrying a higher draft grade than ferguson did last year... i feel that if miami picks in the top 2-3 picks that would most certainly have a serious shot at johnson or thomas... i am a believer that johnson would be the most worthy, due to his incredible size speed and hands... he's a faster version of keyshawn johnson... i know miami has chambers, booker, welker and hagen... but WR's like calvin johnson don't come around too often... if johnson is the pick in round #1 .. why not draft a guy like doug free or staley both highly touted OT's from smaller schools.. you don't pass on calvin johnson for a specific need... if miami picks in the top 5-10 than OT could be the pick with guy's like brown and baker on the board... i have to say i hope things fall right when draft time comes around.. it looks like it's going to be exciting this year...

I agree that we have to take a shot at Calvin Johnson if he's available. It's not like Chambers is dominating the game lately. Wes Welker seems to be out doing him constently.

I agree with CJ even though I like Joe Thomas. But you really shouldn't compare Chambers and Welker. They aren't even close to being covered in the same manner.

You do have a point there. What i'm trying to say about Chambers is that he dosen't show up alot this season. What happened to the guy that was catching 15 balls against Buffalo?

I agree Chambers needs to step up, but the throws his way have to be more accurate too. Everyone on the team needs to improve and step up.

Edit: As much as I think he gets too much credit, Welker is the lone player that doesn't need to step up. Followed closely by Ronnie and JT.

What would be the point of that? Drafting Johnson would make Chambers exactly what he should be, the best #2 in the league. Not saying Johnson would immediately be our #1, but it would be pointless to draft a WR in the top 10 and then turn around and trade the top WR on the team.

Then they will be paying for their shortsightedness for the next 10-15 yrs.
You just don't get many opportunities to draft a good QB. It's a no brainer to draft Quinn.
