This might not be a popular idea amongst the Tannehill lovers, but think about how Seattle had their top free agent Qb but still took Wilson in the 3rd. I'm not saying use the 12th pick, but if there is someone in the late 2nd-4th round that may give Tanny some competition, I say draft him and let training camp decides who is the starter. As a fin fan of over 25 years, I've seen my fair share of qb's and I'm not nearly sold on our current starter. Wilson is proof that you never know which QB will be your starter till the competition starts. I'm not a rabid fan of Tannehill, but I'm a die hard Dolphins fan and always want the best for the franchise.
We should have picked Wilson last year, I recall CK (I think) did an excellent write-up pre-draft essentially saying to ignore his height, the kid is legit, he was right...
nothing until after the 5th round
No. People always think that these running QBs are here to stay and dominate the league.
Once film cycles they'll figure out how to stop Wilson, RGIII and future running QBs. It's what happened to Cam Newton this season. Guys get enough film on a QB and things change. Typically the running QB relies too much on his legs to make adjustments and that just doesn't happen.
Mike Vick is probably the greatest dual threat QB of all-time and that's saying something.
Miami needs to draft another QB in this draft. Keep drafting one each year until we find our man.
It wouldn't hurt to take a flyer on day three of the draft on a QB with some potential.

Wilson is the anti-Vick.

"...the best quarterback I believe is Dan Marino..."
"If he played with these rules, he'd throw for 100,000 yards."
