I think he will want high (1st or 2nd) pick money regardless of where he goes, similar to Lienhart last year.

IMO part of getting value for your pick is paying him the least you can which is closely related to the slot where he is selected. So if you like a player at 9, but are pretty sure he will be there at 15, it makes sense to try to trade down, so you can pay him 15th pick money.
With Quinn, it makes sense to trade up to 2, since that is the kind of money he would demand anyway. Sure the draft pick compensation would be less to go up to 6, but moving up to two gives us the "value" while garunteeing (sp?) that you get the guy you want.
Two firsts should do it, I would think.

are you serious? I can understand paying Quinn top 3 money if it comes to that, but I can't fathom trading away next year's first to ensure that we do it.

The Dolphins need players. Cam can't build through the draft if we give all the picks away; he said he got all the pics to bring back a competitive team by using the draft like the Pats do. Cam wants to build this team back up, that won't be by gambling all the picks he has built up.
Brady looks to me like another Joey H. anyway.

Quinn and any other first day pic needs to prove themselves before they think they can get tons of money from us.

So you are saying that we should just throw away our 1st round pick next year just so we can justify paying him more money?

Why? Are you afraid that someone might laugh at us for paying too much? Oh no! You are right, we should definetally waste a 1st round pick just so nobody will laugh at us.

I love Quinn 'talking trash', if you will, about him thinking he should be the first pick in the draft. That however, shouldn't carry over to contract negotiations. QBs are different when it comes to slotting for contracts, but if he falls to #9, it will be because that is closer to where he really should be taken, taking away the fact that he's a QB...

I'd never trade up to #2, particularly if we have Green in place... We're not going to pay him #2 wages if he's drafted at #9...

I do like Quinn but im not sold on giving our draft away, we got to many holes to fill. If the brownies want him,they can have him. watch him stink up the joint going into a bad system ,let them be the laughing stock.. I say if he dont fall some in the draft ,so its reasonable where we can get him or at nine,forget it !! take kolb,stanton and keep our picks..... just my take.
