Do the fins go after somebody like Coples for DE? Or maybe someone like Burfict to play the Middle while Dansby moves to the outside?

I hope we stay the heck away from Burfict. Dude will cost us 100 yards a game in stupid penalties.

Coples makes a lot of sense. Looks like the Fins have talked to Audie Cole (MLB NCST...6'4" 248 lbs) at the Senior Bowl as well and he's projected to be a mid 3rd rounder - early 4th rounder so he may be in play to man the middle of the defense.

Let Soliai walk, the use that money for Mario Williams. Then draft Coples.
Williams, Odrick, Starks, Coples-That's a scary front 4

Soliai is a free agent, he's not counting against our cap right now and we have $21 million in cap room with 39 players under contract. We sign Mario Williams we can forget about Peyton Manning or Matt Flynn.

I'd rather spend the money on the QB.

Coples would be a great pick for us in the first round.

Top 10 is way too high for a MLB regardless of scheme. For top 10 defense you're looking for someone who sacks the QB or a DB that takes away half of the field in coverage.

You know, thats funny.

About...ohhhh 5 years ago, I was STRONGLY advocating we take an MLB with our top 10 pick.


Had we done so, we would have the very best ILB tandem in the NFL, and our defense would instantly be much better.

We indeed completely and totally wasted that pick on a "Game changer" instead.....damnit!!!!

The Patrick Willis and Ray Lewis's are rare. There's not one of those in this year's draft.

Honestly, I wonder if Spitler or Mitchell could handle the MLB spot. Dansby and Burnett at OLB could easily mask their deficiencies.

Bellichick and Brady are masters at uncovering 'masked' deficiencies and exploiting them

ha, well the jokes on them because Miami has done a much better job of displaying their deficiencies before anyone has to exploit them.

Theres quite a bit about him in the Senior Bowl thread. In short...hes a monster. He is extremely powerful..good hand use..gets off the ball decent but not exactly super explosive. So far the reports have been that hes dominated this week.

Unless his name is Brian Urlacher.

I loved Burfict when I first saw him at ASU but the guy makes way too many stupid penalties...late hits, helmet-to-helmet hits, out-of-bound hits, and unsportsmanlike penalties. If we take a LB, I would grab Courtney Upshaw and move him to the line in a 4-3 defensive formation. He is great at getting to the QB.

if we switch to the 4-3 and IF we have the 8th pick i think we should draft Devon Still in the 1st, Vinny Curry or Andre Branch in the 2nd And Audie Cole in the 3rd....

But there might be a John Offerdahl in Luke Kuechly.

I agree there's probably not an MLB I would spend the 9th on at this juncture, but an all world MLB is not that rare. Navarro Bowman has outplayed Willis much of the year, Urlacher has made the Bears a dominant Defense since the day he was drafted and there is a kid here in Dallas that is a tackling machine.

I'm only suggesting that generalizing that no position is as important as any other is a huge mistake, and that is the reason, in general terms, I am a huge proponent of BPA.

Pending FA, i think we absolutely target Coples. We need a DE and possibly a LB. We could get away with Dansby Burnett Misi at LB if needed.

Still, Odrick and Wake up front.... WE ARE...PENN STATE

I wanted pwillis as well, but it all depends on the right time. Ex when we needed DT we got Tim bowens but fdup in 96 with MLB ... No Ray Lewis, lucked up with ZThomas. All to say Miami has a problem with picking the obvious. Nicks n Bryant and etc.

Blackmon or Couples if not trade down look for Tanny/Flores late 1st
