    Couple of questions about offense

    I really like the athletes we are drafting. Obviously only Jerry is an offensive player. One of my questions is why aren't we picking any offensive players beyond the one OL?

    McCoy seems like a good player that has potential, however, setting there ready to be picked is Dorin Dickerson out of Pitt. We need a fast TE and he's there in round 7 yet we pass him up!

    Like I say, I am not bashing our picks because I like them, but geez...how bout at least one new playmaker? If I was the OC I would be pissed because I would like to have someone in the passing game to lean on because if Brandon Marshall gets hurt, Miami is back to the no impact offense they had last year.

    I'm shocked Dorin Dickerson is still on the board this late
    There must be a reason that we are not aware of...

    I was expecting a backup RB and a TE - one pick to go...

    I'm curious how Dickerson can still be available also. There has to be something we aren't aware of.

    I look at the Pats and Ravens who both picked TWO top TE's. We need one. Dickerson and Fasano would make a good tandem. I'm just trying to figure out why the FO doesn't pick at least one playmaker on offense.

    I sure like our picks and we needed defense so I am happy with who we have drafted but just curious.

    Dickerson is now a 7th round Texan.

    Exactly. Brandon Marshall is a huge addition to this offense. Priority has been with defense and rightly so. I personally would have liked to see a TE drafted because I'm not sure Haynos/Nalbone are going to scare anybody, but I guess we can live with Fasano and Haynos for another year.

    People who rip the FO need to remember we added Dansby and Marshall this off-season while losing nobody of significance (sorry but Porter and JT were pretty useless last year). We're in a tough division and may still finish thirs next season, but we will be a much improved team.

    Relatively Raw --- Lacks the height and bulk that you look for --- Is not a polished route runner --- Doesn't get a lot of separation against defensive backs --- Not real elusive --- Isn't very powerful --- Not much of a blocker, especially in-line --- ' Tweener without a clear-cut position.

    Maybe because he is a 226lbs TE. He does give who much as a blocker.

    Also, our WR group looks really nice now that Marshall's there. Hartline should develop into a very good #2, and Bess gets to pretend he's Welker in the slot. Camarillo will also be solid in the slot. I thought we might go G. Tate in the 2nd, but I love the Misi pick, so no complaints from me.
