    Any thoughts on Devlin as backup QB?

    The staff seemed pretty high on Devlin this off-season.

    So, my question for knowledgeable Fin fans is this: What are your thoughts on entering the next season w. Devlin as number 2 on the depth chart, if MM goes somewhere else?

    Philbin really seemed to like Devlin.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Fins drafted or brought in some competition for RT just to keep him competitive and at the top of his game. I'm sure if Miami felt that strong about Devlin then he would've gotten a start in the preseason. Nothing to see there

    Philbin absolutely loves Devlin and I do think it is very possible he will be the #2, or at least have a chance to compete for it. I do think Miami will try and re-sign Moore to be the #2, and I wouldn't be surprised if Moore tests the free agent market then comes back. But in the scenario that Moore leaves, I think Devlin will be the #2 and they will draft someone in the 5th or 6th round to be the #3 and push Devlin.

    I like the development of Devlin but with Tannehill as our starter, I think it would be a huge mistake to not bring in a veteran qb. If Tannehill goes down, Devlin is far from ready to be an NFL starter. As for drafting a guy late in draft at qb, I would do that almost every year.

    How do you know that he is far from being an NFL starter? Is Tannehill ready? You all said that he is only a rookie and he only had 19 games in college and that's why we shouldn't exepect too much from him. Anyway we're talking about Devlin as #2 and not the starter (for now). Do you think a veteran who was not good enough to be on any other team is ready to be our starter?

    As "we're" is plural, and you (which is singular) are the only person talking about Devlin taking the job away from Tannehill, I think "we" are talking about Devlin as the #2 on a permanent basis. This is coming from a huge fan of Devlin.

    A veteran free agent of course. Lets ask Minnesota how it feels to have a less than stellar backup. From what I have seen of Devlin he is still a product in development. What would it hurt to bring in a vet instead of finding out the hard way

    Yeah, I got thoughts. It is reckless to have Devlin as your #2.

    I have to agree! Ideally, your #2 should be someone with some experience under their belts.
