I am a big advocate of drafting Kuelchy or DeCastro @ 8.......unless as I said one of the so called big 6 drop. As the draft is getting closer, rumours persist that Rams are leaning towards Fletcher Cox and Jags Stephen Gilmore. How would you feel if Blackmon drops to us at #8. I think he would be perfect for Philbin/Sherman in the WCO.

I think you have to take him but I am personally starting to lean towards M. Floyd as the WR with the most upside in this draft.

If Blackmon (or any of the consensus elite picks) is available at 8 someone will trade up for him. I'd look to deal, otherwise you def take him.

all i know is if i'm sam bradford i'm plum ticked off if my team again decides that a top level wr talent in the draft is not a major priority for us...the wr core in st louis is dreadful...there's not a consistent win player in the group...the best guy is the slot who's name escapes me...if they want bradford to succeed at least give him some damn talent

Yep agreed. If Blackmon is around at 8, then someone in St Louis should be fired. Bradford has NOTHING to work with. But yes, if he's there at 8, i'd take him, then trade back into the 1st and get Weeden in the 20s. DREAM SCENARIO

They're looking for someone to play next to Kendall Langford

i'm not so sure i'd take blackmon over floyd either if its just a talent thing...when blackmon came in at just 6 ft 1 and 207 lbs i was not expecting that...i thought he was bigger than that...blackmon can drop a vertical deep ball with the best of them also...floyd though is just not clean off the field and doesn't play 4.45 fast

yeesh i looked it up the current roster on espn.com...trevor laws is a package player they could definitely use a dt...i can see cox in play there...for some reason i thought they had corey liuget last year in the draft but i forgot they chose quinn then...i had mocked liuget to them last year...i think he's in san diego though

still if your bradford your ticked if it goes down that way... cowherd just said blackmon is the best wr since calvin johnson...this is why i think cowherd when it comes to the draft and prospects is a clown...

I've seen Cox and Gilmore climb the boards like fire the last few days. I don't hink it happens though. I still think the top 6 will remain the same and Ingram will go Jax, which leaves me completly clueless on what we do with our pick (as I believe we would have taken Ingram at 8)...

Although the emergence of Cox is a good thing for us in finding a potential trade partner with our 8th pick.

If both Tannehill and Justin Blackmon are sitting there at 8 who do we take? Sure we need a QB, but Blackmon is gonna be a BEAST in the NFL. Maybe we take blackmon and try and get someone like weeden or osweiler later on? Thoughts?

I think I'd take Blackmon. That said: I don't think he'll be there at 8.

I think Blackmon is overrated, but I do think he'd fit the new offense very well.

You can find good receivers throughout the draft inluding undrafted free agents. It's pretty difficult to hit on quarterbacks outside the first round. Here are last years top 10 receiving leaders and the round they were drafted. I take a shot on the QB. Brandon Marshall didn't change this team's overall record and neither will Justin Blackmon......hitting on a QB will. Whether you like Tannehill or not he could develop into an elite player at QB.....and that is what will make the Dolphins relevant again.

Brandon Weeden.

My dream scenerio is Blackmon in the 1st and Weeden in the 2nd. I have absolutley no faith whatsoever that either player will be available when we pick in those rounds though. If I'm being realistic and picking ahead of time off a list of players I think will be there when we draft I'd like Miami to take either Floyd or Keuchly with their 1st round pick. I wouldn't be too pissed with Tannehill at #8 because I'd reserve final judgment on him until I've seen him play a season or two, but my expectations wouldn't be very high.

If you are convinced about Tannehill, then he is the pick NO MATTER who is on the board b/c a franchise QB is worth more than ANY other position, no ifs, ands, or buts.

If you are not convinced then you go with the hihger draft grade, which in this case is Blackmon.

I agree with that statement completely. I'm convinced about Weeden.

Tannehill is a 2nd round talent. Just because a team is desperate, reaches, and takes him in the 1st round, doesn't make him a better QB.

Not sure I agree with that. In a passing league you may need to redefine what you consider 1st round talent at the QB position. Teams appear to be thinking the same way considering the run on QBs last year. If Tannehill has a reasonable chance to succeed as a very good NFL QB after sitting for a year then I say pull the trigger.

1st round talent at any other position without a QB is not getting you anywhere. Ask Adrian Peterson and Jared Allen where they are picking this year.

Blackmon will not be there at 8... why does everyone keep hoping and wishing he will? Just setting yourself up for disappointment.
