    Does Miami really need........

    ......... 11 draft picks? They don't have that many holes to fill.

    I say trade with Cleveland to move up in the 1st. The 54th pick at 2b may be enough. (I'm using the Value Chart here)

    Then trade back into the 1st round, maybe with Atlanta at 30. The 42nd pick at 2a and the 77th pick at 3a.

    Pick Lane Johnson. I know it's not an exciting pick, but, it's an important position and Miami can wrap up the position on a 4 year rookie contract. Good business. This team should win games next year, so come the '14 draft a stud LT will be way out of reach. Get one now.

    With the second pick in the 1st, draft Tank Carradine or a corner.

    That's leaves a 3rd, a 4th, two 5ths and three 7ths.

    Thoughts?

    More picks the better. More room for error. Have you seen our drafting record?

    Its possible. I think we are certainly looking into it. I think Cleveland would want the fifth rounder as well though. Maybe give them a 4th next year.

    Myself, I tend to believe in waiting until things shake out with Philly and KC first. If two T's go then, just bag it. Draft Jonathan Cooper and go with trading up into first round instead. less costly w/ draft picks.

    or we could get Tavon Austin, the most explosive 174 pound WR you ever saw!
    The draft? Wallace gone changes everything. FA is the first key.

    They need talent. They need depth. They need the kind of youth that can develop into impact players. Having these picks while already having addressed major needs allows us a real opportunity to jump forward exponentially as a talented roster. I would only trade up for an impact player at a key position (like a QB) not for oline.

    The draft isn't only about "filling holes," which is one of the most overused phrases on here right now. Sure, the top few picks can do that, but the majority of picks are meant to be used on players that a team can develop, either for depth or as future starters. All are equally important. The best drafters aren't looking for immediate starters in the mid to late rounds at most positions, though they certainly can be found.

    I could have saved myself the trouble and just "thanked" this post.

    If that's what happens, we need new staff.

    Ok, but what about my point that Miami won't be in a position next draft to get a stud LT? It may be a problem position for years. I think it needs to be addressed now.

    i would not be opposed to trading some picks for higher picks in next years draft considering the contracts that will expire next year
    change a 3rd rounder into a second rounder...

    I'm praying you're be sarcastic. With that many picks you are bound to find 3-4 impact guys and get some depth at important positions, not just to draft them so they don't make the roster. I get what you're saying though I just don't agree on going about it.
