This will be my last draft until the NFL combine.

Round 1, Pick 1:

Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU - As a lot of people would say, it all starts at the trenches. However, that's been a fight Miami has been losing for a while, ranking dead last in run defense. It also doesn't help that we couldn't consistently pressure the quarterback, let alone get to the quarterback for a sack. Glenn Dorsey could help with both. He can play multiple positions on the line, whether it be 3-4 or 4-3.

Round 2, Pick 1:

Terrell Thomas, CB, USC - Terrell Thomas brings a lot of things to the table. He has great speed. He has the ability to play the pass AND the run. He is very physcial. He also has the ability to play both free and strong safety.

Round 2, Pick 27:

Beau Bell, ILB/OLB, UNLV - Can somebody say "Heir of Zach Thomas"? He has great size, great speed, and the ability to rush the passer. He can also both inside and outside and is very productive player (posting over 100 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, and three sacks last season).

Round 3, Pick 1:

Branden Albert, OL, Virginia - With us now having a lot of Dallas personnel in the coaching staff, large offensive linemen is a must. Branden Albert fits the size part at 6'7" 315lbs and is a very consistent player and is one of the top guards entering the draft.

Round 4, Pick 1:

Brad Cottam, TE, Tennessee - This guy has good speed and very large frame, standing at 6'8" 270lbs. It's hard to pass this guy up. He is a great athlete and a very hard worker, making him a project worth taking on that could be a great boon for us and the offense.

Round 5, Pick 1:

Forfeited... Again. Seriously, am I the only one annoyed by the fact that for the third straight year we are without a fifth rounder in this draft?

Round 6, Pick 1:

Caleb Campbell, SS, Army - This guy is huge for a safety at 6'2" 224. But he is also fast and hard hitter with a lot of range. He'd be right at home with Jason Allen and (if they choose to re-sign him) Yeremiah Bell.


Round 7, Pick 1:

Jacob Hester, HB/FB, LSU - Why not? He'd be a great addition to the team. While not a starter, he could be another slash player with great hands, a love for the game, and a team player mentality.

I'm more annoyed that we've given up two second round picks and two fifth round picks for QB's and yet we still don't have a Franchise QB.

Hester will never make it that far, I doubt Albert does either, but I'd love to have him there. I like us taking a CB in round 2, but I am not a fan of Thomas. I expect other higher rated corners to be available there.

I think that in a deep CB class, I wouldnt spend pick 32 on a CB unless DRC somehow falls, or Reggie Smith. I think you will get a real good one in the third. I do think we look to trade pick 32, which is a very common trade up spot for a guy that has fallen.

Pretty good SilverPhin, I wouldn't mind that draft at all. I still prefer Long over Dorsey, because I believe we can get a good NT in the second round.

:up: Time will tell how well you did on the specifics, but I think you have the general idea down pat.

Considering one of our CB's should have been playing at nickel and our one true starting CB is entering his last year, I would be suprised to see us only take one CB.
