I smell a smoke screen. First, let me say I'd be behind drafting Spiller. I just don't believe that the Trifecta REALLY wants him. This is what my cracked crystal ball says....

Seattle has a strong interest in CJ with their 2nd 1st round pick. Their 1st pick MUST go for an OT to block for their new QB and soon to be RB. At 14 the best OTs will be gone. They want CJ with pick #14. Why do I think this? First off they need a dynamic RB like CJ. Second, their new coach was falling all over CJ in HS trying to get him to go to Southern Cal. Now he gets his chance.....

Miami is trying to threaten taking CJ to scare all those below into trading up with the Fins. I think we trade down at 12 and pick up an extra 3rd (maybe even 2nd) rounder for Seattle or some other team....They are also making noise about drafting OL to scare Pittsburgh and those below that they need to move up to get their man. Imagine trading down to 14 with Seattle, then again down with Pitt in the First and picking up an extra 2 picks in the 1st 3 rounds.

Miami will have to go best OLB with the 1st pick. WR, S, NT will all come later.

Smoke Screen. The one thing we have learned the last couple of offseason, we do not tip our hand.

Here is the article:



We're hearing talk of teams possibly trying to invade the lower reaches of the top 10 in order to get a crack at Spiller, with rumors currently focusing on the Dolphins and the Giants.

With Running Backs having such a shorter lifespan now, and with the advent of the 2 back system and with the availability of stellar running backs available in the 2nd or 3rd round now, it would be silly for a team to move up to the top 10 to pick up a running back.

Clemson’s CJ Spiller was 5’11, 196, with huge 10’01 hands (10 inches and 1’8th of an inch). He ripped a 4.37 forty and depending on what happens with Brown, you can’t rule out the possibility of the most dynamic player in all of college football becoming a Dolphin. I can confirm that CJ met with the Dolphins over the weekend.

No thanks. Spiller would be great to have, but not if you have to trade up. If we trade up I would hope it is for Berry.

It just doesn't make any sense. The Dolphins are solid at RB and a complete mess on defense so they trade up to get another RB.:ponder:

Yeah, I don't think anyone would be happier than Ireland if we can trade down 10 or so slots and pick up another second in the process.

Short of that, I do think the FO would think long and hard if Spiller's there at 12, which, by all accounts he well could be since he'll definitely help overlay some some more of that empty orange with azzes...... but no way are they trading up for him IMO.

I cant see who would actually take Spiller before 12.

Guys, I know this sounds crazy......but I see us unloading Ronnie Brown in a trade. I just feel it coming. I think we draft C.J. and pick up 2 draft picks for RB. Not saying I want that to happen, but I feel it coming.

That would be awesome. It would mean throwing an extra NT, LB, FS, TE, or WR into the mix--a solid prospect and not some late round flyer on a guy we can't count on for 3 years. If you look over old drafts, there are busts in the top half of the first round, too.

BINGO!!!!! I don't think Miami will be picking at #12. I think it's and ideal spot to trade back and there will be top 10 talent still on the board, but wont have to pay them top 10 money.

...is it just me, or are the Dolphins and Giants linked in a lot of reports this offseason??

they were initially the 2 teams who would target R.McClain
they were the 2 likely destinations for K.Dansby
they were the top bidders for A.Rolle
now they are the 2 teams looking to trade up for CJ Spiller....

maybe I just notice it more because I live here....

I was listening to Bill "Philly Billy" Werdel who was on local radio this morning. He used to be a radio host here and has a lot of NFL connections, and is currently working with ESPN. He said this morning that the Dolphins and Giants are trying to trade into the top 10 to make a run at Spiller. Take it for what it is worth. I am just passing along what I heard.

We're hearing talk of teams possibly trying to invade the lower reaches of the top 10 in order to get a crack at Spiller, with rumors currently focusing on the Dolphins and the Giants.

The Dolphins currently hold the No. 12 pick; the Giants are at 15.


This link was brought to my attention by Brother Georgia Fin at the other site. I am not saying that it will happen, just a lot of conversation by two different sources already.

Maybe we trade down 3 spots with the Giants plus pick up an extra draft pick in the process?

I think this is a smokescreen. Could see us going up and getting berry and would love it! Then again could also see them trading ronnie for a 3rd and 5th and taking spiller...

I don't get that move. Unless you can produce value by trading Ronnie Brown, or even Ricky before their contracts with the Dolphins ends. But it wouldn't be much value. I'd much rather keep what we have and address other needs.....If we're going to trade up for anybody, let it be Eric Berry.

Chubby
03-29-2010, 10:02 PM
1.We Have Ronnie Brown, Ricky Williams, P. Cobbs, Hilliard & Sheets(Going to be a sleeper this year)
2.Running Backs are a dime a dozen
3.Their productive years have gone from 10+ to pushing 6+
4.You can get good to great ones in the 2nd and 3rd round.

Again why would we give up picks to jump into the top 10 to select a running Back? Why would we even select him if he was there at 12?

Well this is Rickys last year and Ronnie can't stay healthy so we need to find a Runningback at some point!!! Sure, Next offseason. Cause you know a plethora of Veteran Running Backs will be available again for pennies on the $ and you can draft one 2nd or 3rd Round.

IMO, the only player we trade up for is Eric Berry. He is the only one worth giving up picks/players to move up for too.

If I could thank you I would. My feelings exact. Foolish for anyone to think we move up to pick up a RB. I wouldnt even select him @12 this year.

If he was comming out next year, then maybe @12 next year but it would be tough knowing you can still get a stud in the 2nd or 3rd round.

I was just reporting what I heard and what I read from two different sources. It is probably a bunch of crap to shake up the top 15 on the draft board.

finner
03-29-2010, 10:25 PM
Good reporting but ZERO possibility for this rumor to materialize in reality. I don't think we'd even take Spiller if he "fell" to 12. Tho I wouldn't mind if we did.

Regardless, we're going to have the chance to hit a HR @12 -- lets just hope the "Trifecta" makes the RIGHT pick (not another f@#king Pat White PLEASE!)

IMO Miami won't be trading up for anyone. The FO puts too much value in their draft picks.

oasis
03-29-2010, 10:32 PM
total smokescreen...

We are either trying to trade up (for Berry) and want teams to know it's for the wrong guy...

or we are trying to generate interest in Spiller so a different player falls to us...

or we are trying to generate interest in Spiller so we can trade back.

Spiller's one of only four players I'd really like at 12. But, I wouldn't trade up for him, and neither would the FO. If anything, this confirms our lack of interest in Spiller.

I'm thinking that as soon as the Seahawks are on the clock we should package Brown with the 12th pick and move up to 6th to get Berry. Brown's limited output is easily replaceable in the later rounds.

So then why would Seattle want him?

Sounds to me like Ireland is trying to have one of the top 11 prospects drop to #12 by having someone ahead of Miami draft Spiller.

Good physical back, can be a franchise back, especially if he splits carries with another back and has a chance to stay healthy. This also lets them get away from having a big contract signed.

I think Ronnies a real good back but my point was if we can easily replace him in the later rounds then why wouldn't Seattle just do the same thing then?
