If Houston has as much interest in C.J. Spiller as the rumors would have them, it seems to be a match made in heaven for Miami.

Spiller will more then likely be on the board at the 12th spot and if Houston wants a back as bad as they claim, trading down became a lot easier for Miami.

Trade down to the 20th and pick up a 2nd (unlikely) or a 3rd and add the extra pick and still have a good variety at a safety, nose, outside backer and receiver at 20th.

That would be my ideal situation this year and I would jump for joy if the front office pulled that off.

Are you sure Spiller would drop to 12? Hes a top 10 guy. Or so I've been told.

Looking at the team who pick 1-11 and looking at their Major Needs and what players are slated to be top 10 picks it does look like Spiller will be there at 12. But I would want a 2nd round pick to move or stay put. I dont think a third round pick alone is worth it to go from 12-20.

Its almost not even close. The only thought is, if you are going to take the same guy whether or not you pick at #12 or #20, then i guess anything is a bonus.

I guarantee Houston will not trade up. They will stay at 20 and draft either Ryan Matthews or Earl Thomas.

Yeah I looked at this myself and I was thinking a 3rd and maybe something next year later in the draft to compensate the value.

Ideally it would be the 20th and their 2nd and the value is almost spot on with Houstonís picks.

Spiller has a good chance of being available at 12 and some mock drafts have Miami taking him at 12.
