    Roman's updated 7 round mock

    My mock involves us trading down our first pick and we also sign Matt Flynn at QB.

    1. Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
    1B. Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor
    2. Dwayne Allen or Coby Fleener, TE, Clemson/Stanford (whichever TE is left on the board)
    3. Brock Osweiler, QB, ASU (Moore, Flynn and Osweiler become our 3 QB's)
    4. Trumaine Johnson, CB, Montana (this guy is going to be a great d-back)
    5. Jake Bequette, DE, Arkansas (this guy is a great pass rusher)
    6. Ryan Miller, OG, Colorado (I watch this guy here in Colorado and he does a nice job on the line).
    7. Fozzy Whittaker, RB, Texas (Tore his ACL/MCL, but don't overlook him).

    If we get a QB in FA, instead of Coples or Upshaw I'd rather trade down 5-7 slots, draft Wright, and than Fleener.

    The one thing I have a question on is how in blazes are we going to trade the #8 or #9 pick for TWO 1st round picks? I just don't see that happening.

    You have to think of everything within a context. Everything has to fit, and it has to be realistic. Those are the two requirements.

    An example of realistic is, can you sign Matt Flynn AND get Paul Soliai back? Chances are, no you cannot. There just isn't enough money under the cap to do that. As things stand it's rumored Miami already may have to get rid of Yeremiah Bell just to have some operating room.

    Here's one option:

    Plan 1 - Weeden the Garden
    SIGN: DT Paul Soliai, CB Will Allen, FS Reggie Nelson, SLB Manny Lawson, LE Cory Redding
    LOSE: DE Kendall Langford, SS Yeremiah Bell
    DRAFT: RT Riley Reiff, QB Brandon Weeden, LB Bruce Irvin, DE Kyle Wilbur, WR Ryan Broyles, TE Chase Ford, FB Cody Johnson
    COMMENT: Essentially Miami becomes Brandon Weeden's team. You're betting on Weeden to win the job from Matt Moore either in 2012 or 2013. They'll be throwing the ball to Brandon Marshall, Brian Hartline, Davone Bess, Clyde Gates, Anthony Fasano, Charles Clay and Chase Ford. Ryan Broyles' rookie year would be a tossaway year, recovering from knee surgery and learning Joe Philbin's offense. What I like about that is, chances are one of the four receivers up top be it Marshall, Bess, Hartline or Gates, is just not going to 'get it' in Philbin's offense. Broyles is a nice backup plan to step in for whichever guy isn't getting it. Weeden will be protected by Top 10 bookends in Jake Long and Riley Reiff with a Top 15 pick at Center, and probably Richie Incognito and Nate Garner at Guard. The addition of Cody Johnson gives you a true fullback that is a battering ram in short yardage situations (only lost a total of 19 yards in 340 carries at Texas), which was a big weakness of the Bush/Thomas unit in 2011. Chase Ford rounds out a nice Tight Ends unit where you have a great blocker in Anthony Fasano, a joker in Charles Clay, and a seam controller in Chase Ford. On defense, you're relying on a heavy defensive line rotation with big bodies and lots of muscle to stop the run, and then allow Cam Wake and Bruce Irvin/Kyle Wilbur/Manny Lawson to come in on pass downs, pin their ears back and really just go after the passer. You're relying on Karlos Dansby to continue the work he did replacing Crowder in the middle, with Burnett playing Will and Lawson as a run stopping Sam, Misi as a backup at both Sam and Will, and a guy that can rotate at D-End when needed. The back end sees Reshad Jones moving into Yeremiah Bell's position which would make Slimm and some others happy, while Reggie Nelson plays Free Safety, and Vontae Davis, Sean Smith, Will Allen and Jimmy Wilson continue at corner. To me, perimeter defense wasn't a problem in 2011. It was the middle, the safety spots, and communication between linebackers.

    i'll throw out a name i think we're looking at pretty hard should we lose solia and langford in free agency...kendall reyes...i see a lot of starks like qualities in him...early 3rd round sounds right...

    i like the idea of adding corey redding...although for some reason he's striking me as getting long in the tooth...
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"

    Ooops....actually I didn't suggest we get two first rounders....I meant one or the other.....Martin as my first choice, and Wright as my second (1B).

    I wouldn't hate that draft, but i'd change it up a bit. I liked Irvin at WVU, but i just think he is way too small to be anything more than a 3rd down specialist who teams will run right at and destroy if he plays on 1st or 2nd. Same with Wilbur at this point. With all the holes on this team, i don't think we can go for 2 specialists. If we go pass rushers in 3rd and 4th round, i'm going with Cam Johnson and Shea McClellin. I would love Broyles at that spot but you have to think someone takes a flyer on him much earlier, don't you think? And i do everything to stay away from Chase Ford. Being a huge Hurricane fan i watched him do nothing for 2 straight years and get blown up trying to run block.

    Love the Cody Johnson pick. Living in Austin, I thought about him every time Miami had a drive that stalled on the goal line. He's a behemoth, and he has been automatic in short yardage for the Longhorns.

    I am fairly certain it is illegal to draft someone named Fozzy.
