    Im onboard with just about everything but I would swap Baccari Rambo for Elam. Rambo is more of a game-changer back there. I also don't think we would draft "Honey Badger" with the type of character players Philbin is trying to build this team with. I would prob just go BPA with that pick and hope its a very atletic guard. Other than that, I would be absolutely ecstatic with that Offseason!!! Michael Johnson is a budding superstar and him and Wake would terrorize the NFL. Cook gives us the playmaking seam threat we're looking for. Jennings, Allen, and Swope, would give us a very talented WR core to add to a solid Bess and developing Mathews. Derek Cox is a playmaker Sean Smith could only dream of being. Trufant would gives us a very good cover guy with good speed, size, and skills to become a quality starter. This Offseason plan would upgrade just about every unit on our team. Please forward this plan to Ireland please!!!

    OUTLOOK ON Offense
    Expect Ryan and Reggie to be much improved from 2012 due to new explosive players. With newly acquired receivers Greg Jennings and Keenan Allen and Seam shredding Tight End Jared Cook JR (6.5 runs 4.49 40) and Davone Bess and Ryan Swope tearing up underneath defenders expect this unit to score a lot of points. Reggie will return to 1,000 yard form with out any 8 man fronts constantly stopping our ground game. Lamar Miller should also see an expanded role with him improving as a downhill runner and pass protector Our offensive line may be the same if Jerry can hold of Samuda and Schwenke, but expect the unit to be different under a second offseason working the finer points of the zone scheme. Expect the group to develop more with 3 pro bowlers on the left side and pouncey and young players on the right side under the tutelage of Philbin and OL Coach Turner.

    OUTLOOK ON Defense
    Look for a DL rotation of Solaia, Starks, Wake, Johnson, Odrick, Vernon and Randall to wreak havoc on opposing offenses in the run and pass game. The defense overall as a unit will improve in the second year of the 4-3 press man defense. An improved pass rush with Johnson now a stater at the Right Defensive End, should match the press man in-your-face coverage from fresh faces at Corner: Derek Cox, Trufant, and Mathieu. Expect Coyle to work his magic with Reshad Jones and turn him into a pro bowl safety. Also don't be suprised when Coyle develops another star in the making at Safety with the 2nd rounder Matt Elam. This d hung their hat on stopping the run last year and will continue to do the same. Although they now have the pass rush and coverage to match that. Look for the Fins to sport the best FRONT 7 in the AFC (yes better than Houston Pittsburgh and Cincy).

    OUTLOOK ON Special Teams
    Star Special teamer Olivier Vernon will only improve and the dolphins brought back the solid Jason Trusnik and have added a playmaker to the special teams, not just on returns but the Honey Badger will be great in special teams coverage. Expect another big year from Fields and Thigpen as well.

    Buffalo X2

    Replace Cox with re-signing Smith. Replace Johnson with drafting a DE by trading up from 2nd round to 1st. Replace Elam with re-signing Clemons. And replace cutting Marshall and Patterson with restructure. And them replace Allen with Patterson and we got a deal.

    Nice job bro! If you could have Cook, Fasano, Clay and then see who makes the 4th TE I think that would go a long way to help Tannehill along with the other additions you mentioned.

    Thanks to brother Like2God for the great sig!

    I don't think they'll draft the HoneyBadger because I don't think he fits in to what Philbin wants as his team's character. I didn't say he wasn't talented.
    I also said that I saw MOCKS (note that that is PLURAL) with Manuel slotted in the first. I didn't say he would be a first round pick, but I would say that with a QB you never know. They are often overvalued and will be taken (frequently) a round or two too high.
    The pleasure of what we enjoy is lost by wanting more.
