    And as crazy as this sounds and as Bajarona as it makes me just thinking about it, doubling up on the guard position makes come sense as Well.

    I would double up at WR because essentially the Dolphins only have two guys I'd want to keep on my ideal roster at that position. So this qualifies as a heavy need.

    I would double up at CB because the Dolphins only have one CB worth a damn and you need five. This is actually the biggest need on the roster, because of the Vontae Davis trade.

    But the Dolphins need more than you can really get in one off season because the bottom line is neither starting guard is ideal, Reggie Bush seems destined to leave, there's room for one more TE preferably a very good one, they don't have a backup swing tackle, they don't have a free safety and they don't have safety backups, and they don't have linebacker backups.

    Preferably I would keep Jake Long for $10 or $11 million a year, or sell him off for very good compensation (more than a 1st round pick). Randy Starks needs to be back, been saying that forever. I think you either re-sign Brian Hartline and trade Davone Bess, or you keep Davone Bess and let Brian Hartline walk. Tough call but it's harder to find a guy that works the outside like Brian Hartline than it is to find a guy that works the inside like Davone Bess, so if you can monetize Bess for a pick then that may be the way to go. Could just keep both I guess but that places more pressure on you to grab someone with high and immediate impact a la Vincent Jackson, because otherwise you'll not have really made immediate change to a unit that clearly needs immediate change. Fasano is a #2 tight end that may cost a little more than that, so you can let him walk or not but either way another acquisition there is necessary. Tough to let Reggie Bush walk since he's the only true play maker on the field on offense, but he seems to have run afoul of the coaches somehow and your hands might be tied that way. That position isn't truly difficult to re-supply though. I think Sean Smith has to be kept.

    The possibilities on how to go about this in the draft are plentiful. A lot depends on where the Dolphins end up picking. Right now at #14 they're not looking at the same possibilities as we might have previously thought. You can probably scratch off a Manti Te'o at #14, same with Bjoern Werner. I'm not convinced you can scratch off a Keenan Allen there because I could see him falling that far. Tyler Eifert becomes a consideration at that spot, as does a Jordan Poyer or possibly even Desmond Trufant. Alex Okafor becomes a consideration, or Dion Jordan. If he comes out, Matt Elam could be a consideration there. Barkevious Mingo might get back into the conversation at that spot.

    As a tailback, I still favor Dennis Johnson wherever you can get him. But I would note that this weekend, Knile Davis finally looked like he was "back" from an explosiveness standpoint...and he would be an interesting guy if he came at a bargain price. I personally think it's only a matter of time before Ray Graham looks like he has his lower body explosion back and I would keep an eye on him for bargain price tags. Johnathan Franklin is a good football player. I think Jarred Salubi is underrated. Zac Stacey could be a contributor.
    CK, we currently pick at #11, which should help us out a bit.
    Realistically, we could drop 1 or 2 of the last 3 games....so could sloidify somewhere close to that spot.
    If things turn south, we could pick closer to 8.
    This may make a difference as we go through the rounds, especialy if the QB's start marching up the boards (as I believe the recent success of the freshman QB's will dictate).

    Bottom line is that, if Tanny is indeed the answer, and I believe he is.....this draft is the draft that will determine the fate of teh franchise for the next 5 years.

    Bazinga.

    The combinations for doubling up that look good to me are virtually limitless depending on what prospects are available where, so there's really no point in trying to identify specifics on that end. I can double up early/early, early/late, early/mid, mid/mid, or mid/late depending on how the board falls.

    I just think the idea of doubling up at the DE, WR, and CB positions makes too much sense for Miami... and I think I can get a RB that will contribute at any point in the draft. I would just take a RB, TE, S, and OL at any point I choose where I feel like I'm getting the best value for the player.
    Considering we have Wake and Vernon (assuming we let Starks go and move Odrick inside), does it make sense to double up on DE? I would rather get one premier DE to go alongside Wake and have Vernon come in as a rotational end / run stopper.

    The double-up doesn't necessarily have to be the same position. They could get a guy like Dee Milliner in the 1st and Elam in the 2nd.. That's a corner and a safety... doubling up on the secondary (not necessarily by a particular "position") and securing 50% of your starters there...

    or doubling up by means of WR and TE... raising up the ability of the receiving targets tremendously (The good dynamic TE's nowadays are just taller and bigger WR's anyhow). By let''s say drafting Keenan Allen, and with all the 2nd's and 3rd's Miami has they can use some of that ammo to get back into the 1st round for Tyler Eifert.

    Let's hope Miami continues to lose out so that 2a pick in the 2nd round can be a Top-8 pick making such a move easier and less risky to make.

    IMO we need to double up early (im talking 1st and 2nd rd.) at WR. Not only to help us out outside but to help Tannehill develop

    There is just awesome talent there. I do wonder how low Rogers will drop due to character concerns, but he reminds me of Terrell Owens.

    It's always hard for me to evaluate the offensive linemen. What guards do you think fit this scheme that could be had 3rd round or later? You are right, we need two players there although we might be able to get by for another year with John Jerry.
