Okay, let's just say, for hypothetical purposes, we are looking to draft QB (which is most likely going to happen). But you find out that the team two spots ahead of you wants to draft to draft a QB as well, and Quinn is on the board on their pick. Would you.....

A). Trade up, because we do need a developmental QB and Quinn is one of the best at that position... or

B). Keep your pick and try to seek a QB in the later rounds. After all, all picks are valuable.

Keep what you got and work from there. Teams that trade up always seem to have it blow up in their face.

Have to trade up. This franchise needs to draft a big time QB. Something that hasn't been done since Marino. We can't keep getting everybody elses castoffs. Quinn has been in a system at ND that will allow him to adjust to the NFL game faster then other QB's coming out of the draft. Sure we will lose some draft picks, but sometimes you have to take a risk.

With as many holes as this team has, I simply don't see how you can give up picks to move up. Moving up within the top 10 picks will require at least a 2nd rounder and possibly our 1st next year. The price is too steep IMO.

I think the Phins should just select the BPA that fits their teams NEED, and draft a QB in later rounds. Drew Stanton comes to mind.

GO PHINS~!

I'm usually not in favor of giving up picks to move up, but I'm on the Quinn bandwagon, hook line and sinker!!! I'm kind a in the "Get Quinn at all costs" mode right now.

Maybe I'm a fool, but that's what I would do! Trade up if we get word he won't make it to us! Of course, it would all depend on what we would have to trade to trade up.

Would it be 2008's #1? Would it be our #2 this year, plus a later pick? In reality, what will it really take to move up a pick or two?

But I'm tired of this sub-par QB play we've had since Danny left (and probably Danny's last three years overall as well). Time to take a chance. Maybe Quinn won't be a superstar, but I just don't see how he could ever be a bust! At worst, he's Trent Green. I would have taken that the past seven seasons!

I like Quinn more, but I also like Stanton. But - I fear - Stanton may not be around after round one!!

He had a nice Senior Bowl, and if he rocks at the combine, look for him to skyrocket!! Philip Rivers was a 2nd-3rd round pick for a while too, till he wowed scouts down the stretch. Stanton won't jump up to the top of the draft mind you, but there's no way he's even available for us in round two!

:goof: :D :goof: :D:up:

As much as we still need to fill other positions - like OL - we need a QB first!!!

Think of it like this. In baseball, you have to have good pitching more than anything. You can score a ton of runs, but if you don't have the pitching, you're done for. Same goes for OL in football. You can have a ton of talent everywhere, but if you don't have the OL (pitching), you're done for.

That said, having a good QB is like having an ACE on your pitching staff. The best QBs in the NFL are the Roger Clemens, Pedro Martinez's of the league!!! ACEs on your staff make a big difference in baseball. Having a good QB in football makes all the difference as well!

Perhaps, but Marino fell to us, it was destined to happen. We did not force the pick, we did not trade. I would love to see Quinn in Miami, but I would not trade up for him. If he falls to us, that would be great. I like having as many picks as we can. Too bad we do not have the 5th round pick.

I'm hoping Quinn will fall to us. But if a trade up is necessary, it'd have to depend on the trade.

I think we just need to play our hand at #9.....I don't think we can afford giving up picks. Take the BPA......I know we need a QB but if Quinn is gone by the #9 spot then we make due with what we have for now and go after a QB like Brennan or Brohm next year.

i agree that we just take the BPA. We need all the picks we can get. The Fins are more than one player away from being a contender.

It depends. I really don't think the Dolphins are planning to trade up but even speculating on speculation is absolutely pre-mature at this date. If they really think Quinn is going to be an impact player in the NFL, then they should draft him. I personally think you draft the BPA regardless of any of your needs.

If had a scouting department at my disposal, I would rank the top 250 players in the draft and cross each one off as they were drafted. Which ever player was available at the top of my list when I select, that is who I would take.

I hope the Dolphins do the same.

I wanted to note that I'd trade my 1st, 4th and Chris Chambers for the rights to Calvin Johnson. What do you think?

Not worth giving up draft picks. We need all the draft picks we can get.

I believe it depends how good you believe the QB in question is. I don't think there is a 'you shouldnt ever trade up when you have other needs' rule like some people seem to suggest. If you think that the QB is the next Manning or Brees you trade up for him obviously. If you have any questions about his potential IMO you dont take the risk and trade up. In that case it's not worth it.

I'll say what I've said all offseason. If Quinn or Russell falls to us, which is very likely especially since most GMs have CJ as the top player in the draft, we need to take our time making the pick and see if we can coax Carolina into trading up. If they don't take the bait, take Quinn/Russell. From all indictions Daunte will be given a shot to start, but the fact that he's had 2 bad seasons in a row, and doesn't seem to have the best work ethic right now, we need to be prepared in case Daunte doesn't succeed, but under no circumstances should we trade up in the first; especially when other first day QBs like Stanton,Edwards, Kolb, and Smith have good pro potential.

You might be right about that. I had him going in the third round in my projected wish list but the more I think about it the more I think you may be right. I don't think using the first pick on a QB is ever a bad idea, especially when your starting and backup QB's stink the joint up.

GO PHINS~!

Off Topic: Your sig is the exact same as mine was a few weeks ago until I notice Stanton wouldnt be there in the 3rd. Then I changed it to Kevin Kolb (Also mine only went 4 rounds, with the 4th rounder being WR David Ball.
