bjoern werner is the perfect way to start this draft unless we end up winning enough games to take him out of the conversation.
I like werner, than either of the tennesee or clemson WR's with the first second rounder. I am also not against doubling up on positions, I'd really like to take a mid round flyer on werners team mate tank carradine... than we would have a very good arsenal of pass rushers.
I'd take the double up on the WR's as well, with a guy like swope later in the draft. try to find a CB, TE, OG, LB in any order however the board falls.
werner is key IMO...
I agree although I think our chances of drafting a rusher with our first rounder increase dramatically if we sign a free agent WR. I would like to see them sign someone, and draft werner than snag up de andre hopkins with our 2a pick...
My ideal draft would go something like
2a. DeAndre Hopkins
2b. jonathon cooper
3a. tank carradine
3b. zach ertz
4. mike james if he's around still and we don't reup with reggie.
swope hopefully in the fifth. My only problem with that is I fail to slot in a CB anywhere that makes sense from who I think will be available and who I have to pick them over...
i have my heart set on werner, but I'll be happy with an edge rusher like moore, or mingo... I think we are in a bit of a pickle of those three are gone and keenan allen is sitting there, than I have to change EVERYTHING!!!!
i did a mock awhile back where if I recall it went like this... I only bring it up because it had your man chase thomas in there... hahaha
2a. deandre hopkins
2b. chase thomas
3a. desmond trufant
3b. tank carradine
4. jordan reed
5. ryan swope
6. travis bond
7. jordan rodgers
in that scenario... I still liked the FSU double up on the DE spots.. except I had tank at 3b instead of 3a... although i have since changed my mind and just want to pull the trigger on him at 3a instead of risking him being gone... chase thomas was in there over a guard I have pegged in there now. I have dropped bond from my latest idea, and plugged cooper in instead of thomas... choosing to grab a linebacker later from ISU, jake knott.
jordan reed has since been replaced by zach ertz. although I now have nobody penciled in at CB... I can't get comfortable with anybody at cb the longer I wait, and although I know its a pretty big need, I keep not adressing it.... nothing is final for awhile at least hahahaha...
Miami does need a playmaker/athlete/pass rusher. The latest Walter football mock has Dion Jordan (Oregon DE) going to the phins @ 14. He reminds me of JPP but with more experience at the college level.
The phins could double up in the Beaver State by taking Oregon St WR Markus Wheaton in the 3rd.
