Who you guys got at corner? It looks thin at the top beyond Johnthan Banks, who looks like a strong prospect. Dee Milliner is a redshirt SO so isn't he eligible? I tend to like Saban corners. You can get good evaluations on them because you can see how they project. But after that, it seems thin at the top. The Texas corner seems to get alot of play (name escapes me).
How does it look on day 2?
What I am getting at - with corner being so thin, maybe it behooves Miami to make a move on corner in round one and wait for receiver on day two (think Stedman Bailey or Marquess Wilson despite his quitting at WSU). May be easier to get a solid prospect on day two at receiver than at corner. Unless there are some solid corners I am unaware of.
Sean Smith is a free agent and really he is a number 2 corner even if he comes back. Carroll is solid. Jimmy Wilson has struggled as of late but I normally like him in the slot. But we need two more corners, especially ones who can play the ball! And one corner should be a lockdown number one corner. In today's 7-7 on league, this is a must get in this draft. Two, please.
Milliner is eligible...three years removed from high school.
Round two is the place for receivers. It's been shown there's a drop off after R2, but not much difference between the first two rounds.
As for corners, we need interceptions. We need instinct and ball-skills. The team has a good average standard of player in it, but is lacking in TDs, INTs and sacks. We don't need a ton of players but we need a corner with a knack for turnovers. That's one of the reasons I like Banks.
Banks in the 1st for me .... i'd even move up to get him if needed..
It's a huge need and I could definitely see Miami trading up for Johnthan Banks or Dee Milliner. Second rounders that I like include Xavier Rhodes and Desmond Trufant. I believe Rhodes is a junior so he may or may not come out.
ive been to caught up on wrs, gotta do my db homework
i like poyer and trufant, both should be available in 2nd round. gimme a pash rusher and coverage freak athlete like dion jordan in 1st.
there are guys that are easy to like. Love Banks and love Milner. A lot of people are high on Xavier Rhodes, I don't know how I feel about him. I really like Jordan Poyer. David Amerson came into the year projected to go high after a great sophomore year, but he's probably a safety. Logan Ryan is having a great year. Love Desmond Trufant.
There are a lot of guys who are draft eligible that would be great in our system
Strictly for the Dolphins (as opposed to how I would rank them in general), my preferences would be, in order:
Hyde (though he might sneak up my list)
I'm with you on Jordan. If he's not there when we pick maybe Eifert.
