    Drafting is a great idea if you have a gm with a clue, which we don't. In 5 years he has given us Harline. The scary part is he is worse in free agency, where he has given us nothing. Our second best reciever is Bess, who was undrafted. Hopefully Philibin has a clue, and pushes for real talent. I hope he isn't another, in a long line of coaches, who think they can turn trash into treasure because he is smarter than everyone. We need a couple of proven nfl caliber playmakers, on both sides of the ball now.

    As much money as Miami will have, getting playmakers that will force defenses to prepare and not stack the box with 8-9 guys because our WR/TE doesn't scare opposing coordinators. Getting a guy like Wallace, Bowe or Jennings will force defenses to prepare and always have an eye on those guys. This will help open up the run more and Miami can be more effective with the play action passing and get more than 12 passing TDs in a season. Its simple logic.. guys that can make plays will benefit an offense. Please see all playoff teams to see what Miami is sorely lacking. Bring as many talented play makers on board and let the chips fall where they may

    I would disagree. In Jennings they get a guy who knows the system, who plays the right way, and who is still an explosive player. He is worth paying well if for no other reason than what he will pass down to the young guys they use some of these five picks on. Jennings will be a Dolphins and it is the smart play.

    Yeah lets not sign a good WR in FA and lets draft WR's since we have drated so great in the past. You can see my sarcasm but I'm serious. How many WR's have we drafted the last 5 years? How many are some of the best in the league? It is easy to say not to go get a guy in FA because we could get a gem in the 3rd round but chances are slim. If we do what you are saying to do we could draft guys that do not get on the field and we are in the same situation as we were this year. Everyone would be screaming for Irelands and Philbins head because we did not go after a FA WR.

    Most drafted Wideouts except for a few studs take 2 to 3 years to develop like Dez Bryant and Torrey Smith to name a few We need and established wideout as well as a potential stud in the draft

    Jeff Ireland makes mistakes and wastes money like he thinks Obama's gonna bail him out. Passing on Hilton and drafting Egnew should be enough to ****can his ass alone. Hilton would be our #1 WR right now and we wouldn't even be fretting this discussion right now. Instead we have a TE that will probably never playing the NFL again, and who many people feel had no business being drafted. Is there a worse talent evaluation person in all of sports than Jeff Ireland? Just look at how bad he's been with defensive backs. Jason Allen, anyone? (Also, it's still total BS that Miami didn't get Aquib Talib when he was just 'out there' to be had.

    Sports fan hell is knowing that your team will screw it up.

    Jeff Ireland didn't draft Jason Allen. Nick Saban did.
