    Ireland isnt too proud to skip over Richardson. He cut AJ Edds a year after he traded up to draft him....Patrick Turner...Pat White....Shawn Murphy...

    Ireland will replace anyone if there is an oportunity, except at QB of course.

    You have a MUCH different read on Ireland than I do.

    A.J. Edds is a very poor example, in this case. He was a 5th round pick and the first thing he did when he got here was shred his ACL during mini camps.

    I do not think that DeCastro makes it to the 9th spot for the very reasons you point out.

    Either way. Much lower pick, and the first thing he did as a Dolphin was shred his knee.

    I believe Parcells to be much more stubborn that Ireland, and Parcells is gone. Even if Parcells ran the entire show, cuts were made regardless of draft position. If they didnt pan out, they got replaced. Ireland was part of that and I dont think he's too stubborn to draft another RB.

    We actually traded up to get him. And they way Ireland talked about him, I am sure it was Irelands call at the time. It sounds like he did all the work on Edds.

    What about a 3rd rounder to move up a spot or two to take Coples?

    4. Browns - QB Robert Griffin
    5. Bucs - WR Justin Blackmon
    6. Redskins - QB Ryan Tannehill
    7. Jaguars - DE Quinton Coples

    Then what? Miami picks #8 or #9. Who do you pick? Honestly.

    It's too easy to just say "trade down" as if that opportunity is automatically going to exist. But who will do the trading up, and for what player?

    Who would be left that would inspire a trade up? Dre Kirkpatrick, who was just arrested for marijuana possession? Trent Richardson, a tailback, where so many teams have come to believe that drafting tailbacks high in the 1st round is stupid? David DeCastro, an interior offensive lineman? Between Jonathan Martin, Riley Reiff and Mike Adams, there would be enough left at that position that a team in need wouldn't necessarily feel urgency about trading up to Miami's spot with all three of those guys left on the board. The same thing applies at the Defensive Tackle spots, where you'd still have Michael Brockers, Devon Still, Dontari Poe, Fletcher Cox, Brandon Thompson and Alamaeda Ta'amu all still available. With all of those guys available, why feel urgency to trade up to #8 or #9 for one of them?

    So, which player is going to induce teams to trade up and give up extra draft picks?

    The reality is, if the Draft happens the way I laid out above, and Miami doesn't trade up, then yeah...David DeCastro might be their best bet.

    I see Martin, Reiff and DeCastro in a lot of mocks for us. They keep saying we will have Jake Long on the left side and one of these guys as a bookend on the right side for years to come.
