I have followed him for just a short time, since TedSlimjr raved about him he's tough, great cover and flips his hips quick. I think we'd have to have a top ten pick to get him and he will be a #1 CB. I don't get the Amerson love IMO he sucks! These are the corners in the top 15 and I think thats where we will draft.
Also Montgomery is the DE to target as well. He is a good athlete, not as much as Mingo, but he's got strength at poa and he has some nice moves. He is a strong pass rusher, plays the run and these are the 2 players Miami needs to be targeting IMHO at this point. These guys would really add to this tough defense.
iMO Milliner would give us a future shutdown corner and pairing with a developing SS24 we would have a much improved secondary that could develope into a strength. I am wary of Smith because all of a sudden the light is coming on and it happens to be in a contract year. But remember that Smith was a reciever in college so he has been developing since he was drafted. So he may just beginning to reach the potential we saw a few years ago.
If Miami takes a pass rusher I don't see it happening in the first round. They'll take the best avialable WR or trade down for more picks.
This is a deep class for pass rushers and one of the big name players will fall out of the first round. Depending on where the Dolphins pick, I think their top 3 choices for DE are Okafor, Lemonier and Carradine(who would be a great value pick after the mid 2nd round).
Here is Walter Football's updated first three rounders, covering our five picks -
1. Keenan Allen, WR, Cal
2A. Jonathan Cooper, G, North Carolina
2B. Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State
3A. Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
3B. Datone Jones, DE, UCLA
1. Eric Kendricks, MLB, UCLA
2. Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon
4. Ali Marpet, OG, Hobart
5. Tre McBride, WR, William and Mary
5. Kurtis Drummond, FS, Mich State
6. Marcus Hardison, DE/DT, Arizona State
