    Clemons was good 2010 and R.Jones is better suited to FS. I think Richard Marshall will start at no.2 corner with S.Smith coming in on specific passing situations.

    If u look at our D, Odrick will replace Langford and Clemons will replace Bell. With just a little tweak the whole D looks a lot faster.
    Identify the 4 positions of strength in the draft, then double up on each........ if possible


    Tailor Free Agency accordingly, so that your need is these 4 strengths


    2014 draft - RB - WR - OT - OG


    1-Carlos Hyde RB Ohio St.
    2-Marcus Martin OG/C USC
    3-Donte Moncrief WR Mississippi
    4-David Yankey OG Stanford
    5-Seantrel Henderson OT Miami
    6-Laurent Duvernay-Tardif OT McGill
    7-Jeff Janis WR Saginaw Valley St.

    I'd take a wait and see approach. After all, Coyle worked miracles with the Bengals defense.

    Signed a couple of free agents at both WR and S positions. These are the battles to watch during camp (besides QB)!

    Yeah lets draft an Ed Reed or Ray Lewis type....lol....if the next Ed Reed/Ray Lewis was in the draft they would be drafted 1 and 2.....

    True, if just one of our WR prospects works out/improves then I will be very happy, and of course I'm interested to see what shakes out at the safety position. Either way, we did address a lot of needs this year, hopefully next year our laundry list of holes to fill is significantly shorter.

    I'm very excited about the safety position, even with the release of Bell. Jones as we all suspected and pretty much saw, is better suited for the SS spot. I'm not sure what happen to Clemons last season, but am hopeful he will regain his 2010 form minus the dropped INT's and help solidify the FS spot. Wilson IMHO is the wildcard here, he is a capable and viable option at safety. Wilson has the heart of a lion and is a very determined young man, it would not surprise me, if he wins a starting job and at the very least be a much better contributor in the nickle and dime packages. This safety group is young and hungry with lots of hitting capabilities in Wilson and Jones. The CB spot has me a little concerned though. Smith and Marshall both come with question marks in coverage (Marshall) or tackling (Smith). I personally think Marshall was signed to a 3 year deal with the notion that this would be Smith's last season with Miami. I will admit, if Marshall can return to his earlier form while he was with Carolina and improves his coverage as a CB than this could be awesome in terms of how good the secondary could be.

    Well I am still worried about the Safety position, it is the one glaring need BUT and the big but is that if Jones excels at SS one of the others steps up at FS. It still worries me but who knows now that the draft is over maybe some solid talent will move around and maybe Miami can grab someone to push the young guys in camp.
