    Upshaw is exactly the type of kid Miami has not made a priority in the past but really needs to. He makes PLAYS. If we can't get a qb in round one, sign me up for Upshaw in the 1st and Weeden in the second.

    Upshaw opposite of Wake with Dansby on the inside would give Miami three excellent linebackers. Obviously, Burnett has struggled, but having 3 stud linebackers around him would be tremendous.

    Absolutely. Trent is also a dangerous weapon out of the backfield as a receiver, along with being the best pass protecting RB I've ever seen come out of college.... literally.

    If you're picking in the top 10, you should just about always be drafting for ELITE talent... there's only a couple in any draft. Trent Richardson is an extremely rare RB prospect.

    I've always like Reggie Bush and felt that he has a unique skillset, but you can't count on him being your bellcow back. Daniel Thomas is nothing more than the Channing Crowder of Miami's offense.... except Crowder could actually stay on the field when he came into the league.

    Passing on Trent Richardson if he's available outside the top 5 picks is the same as passing on Patrick Willis because you have an old, slow, concussed Zach Thomas and Channing Crowder. It's the same as passing on Clay Matthews because Joey Porter had one big season for you. Same as passing on Matt Ryan because you have John Beck.

    I'm typically drafting vertically picking in the top 10 if an elite talent falls to me. Passing on a talent like Trent Richardson is a mistake.

    I've missed this place. I had a friend (Steelers fan) mock Coples to Miami, and I said I'd prefer Upshaw. Reminded me about the very strong praise Slimm gave to Upshaw, and I had to check to see if anything new was going happening on the draft board. Good ****.

    I just don't get it when I see mocks where upshaw goes in the late teens and early twenties... If we pass on him in the top ten, unless it's for a blackmon or claiborne, or trich... I'd be looking for a bunch of pills to swallow.

    I like Upshaw. He is a good fit in the currently Fins system.

    However, I think Nick Saban defenders play small in the NFL.
