hes great don't get me wrong. hes a special talent but hes not what we need. we need to draft defense and sign a wr in FA. we need a proven talent not another unproven rookie

Nothing against Bryant but don't think the FO will take a WR in the 1st round. I think if we go O in the 1st round it will be Spiller. The FO will trade Brown for a 2nd and take Spilller for his speed and he could line up and catch passes for us. He also threw the ball while in college as well. Spiller for the Wildcat????

You have to take in to account by time Bryant gets to camp he will have been out of football for a very long time. That will most likely mean his chance to make a impact next year is a long shot.

Just look at the way the he jumps and snatches the ball in the air and also the way he jumps on the DBs. you can tell he's going a beast. We dont have a # 1 nor # 2 receiver and we wont be able to find this kind of class without loosing a couple of picks!

i sure hope so if we pass on him that will be a huge mistake

It's not like the guy has been sitting at home eating potato chips all day long. I guarantee the guy has been busting his butt every day so he can impress the scouts and improve his draft stock.

If we load on defense through FA then go for it, but if not then defense, defense, defense!

I think the opposite. I think we should look to FA to fill our NT, LB and FS needs (Vince Wilfork, Casey Hampton, Thomas Howard, Derrick Johnson, Antrel Rolle, OJ Otogwe, Nick Collins, etc.) and then fill WR, RB and TE in the draft.

In FA/RFA...

Mashall and Austin will cost a 1st and 3rd.
Boldin will cost close that.
TO won't cost picks but a stop-gap only.
Malcolm Floyd and others are not true WR1s.

Nah...we should be targeting Dez Bryant at 1.12 and be trilled if he's there.

In fact, if we could trade Ginn to a team ahead of the Broncos at 11, to jump ahead of DEN for Dez Brant, I'd be all for that.

Something like...

1.St.Louis Rams:Jimmy Clauson QB, Notre Dame*
2.Detroit Lions:Ndamukong Suh DT, Nebraska
3.Tampa Bay Buccaneers:Gerald McCoy DT, Oklahoma*
4.Washington Redskins:Russell Okung OT, Oklahoma State
5.Kansas City Chiefs:Eric Berry S, Tennessee*
6.Seattle Seahawks:Joe Haden CB, Florida*
7.Cleveland Browns: Rolando McClain ILB, Alabama*

*****Trade: Dolphins get OAK pick 1.08. Raiders get MIA pick 1.12 plus WR Ted Ginn, Jr.*****

8.Miami Dolphins (from Oak): Dez Bryant WR, Oklahoma State*
9.Buffalo Bills:Trent Williams OT, Oklahoma
10.Jacksonville Jaguars: Derrick Morgan DE, Georgia Tech*
11.Denver Broncos(from Chi): Dan Williams DT, Tennessee
12.Oakland Raiders (from Mia): Sam Bradford QB, Oklahoma* (OAK may use uncapped year to cut Jamarcus)

A lot of mock drafts have DEN taking Dez one pick ahead of us b/c they assume Broncos trade Marshall this offseason. This move to jump DEN ensures us we get our WR1.

I think Dez Brant should come in and look like and play like a WR1 right away for us ala Michael Crabtree for SF last year (but without the holdout).

And/or if we miss out on Dez Bryant, then we draft CJ Spiller as our playmaker1. A traditional WR1 is more what we want but you can also try Spiller as a weapon1 for the offense and just hope that Spiller end up more like Chris Johnson than Reggie Bush.

You don't go defense if he's the BPA. I don't see there being a better talent at #12 unless somehow McClain is there.

Great post. Vince should have been a Dolphin the year he was drafted but would still look great now in a Dolphin uni. The only draft pics the Fins should be giving up are for draft players or as leverage to move up/down. Ufa's are the way to go to fill our needs during free agency. And there's plenty of good ones on defense.

really??? wow...that's so far off it's not funny

and bryant hasn't missed any nfl camp...yet

Exactly, assuming McClain and Berry are gone (obvioulsy Suh and Gerald McCoy too), then Dez and Spllier are next on our board.

But we should favor Dez over other solid defensive prospects like Joe Haden, Jerry Hughes, Dan Williams, Everson Griffen, Terrence Cody, Earl Thomas, etc. I like all those guys but we need a playmaker for Dez or Spiller even more.

Spielman gave away our 4th to move up one spot for Vernon Carey when both Carey and Wilfork were on the board. Spielman:crazy:

I can't decide which I like better, that (above) or...

No way Billy P trades up for a WR. No way. No how.

I think we will be looking at RB believe it or not.

Agreed! I know Bryant is better than Thomas, but just don't know how much. I think Spiller is leagues ahead of Dwyer though. I have been watching Spiller for four years at Clemson and I have never seen a RB with his acceleration and speed! Can truly score from anywhere on the field!

Bryant would be nice . . . all I know is, we can't go into next season w/o upgrading at LB. I'm watching the Jets, Cowboys, Ravens and Cardinals all winning with playmakers at LB . . . until we get that, we won't have their success.

I do like Anthony Dixon too.

In fact, I'm starting to think the explosive RBs from this draft (CJ Spiller and Jahvid Best) may have too much risk. Will Spiller end up being like Reggie Bush and not able to run between the tackles? Will Best be too injury prone? He has a very extensive injury history already and could end up like a Fast Willie Parker who also has trouble staying healthy.

Dwyer is solid but may not even make it to our 2nd round pick. Montario Hardesty has a long injury history and Ryan Matthews is supposed to be sub par in pass protection.

Dixon is tough, durable and will be available later - like even round 4 for us.
