    Not sure if that is allowed within the rules of the NFL, but if they allow flying WRs into the league and we could nab one of them I think one is all we need. No way a DB could cover a flying WR. Of course he would have to be able to catch, and RT would have to be able to learn to throw to 3D routes, but once they practiced it awhile I think it could really change he way the game is played. Personally I think maybe you have been watching too many cartoons, jus sayn.

    Our WR corps with Jennings (no guarantee on that, unfortunately), Hartline, Bess, Matthews, 2nd or 3rd round draft choice, 3rd or 4th round draft choice, and a wicked competition between who was in the bottom of our roster as of the end of 2012 season.
    I really think this is good enough if we can improve the TE position too. You could also bring in a more affordable scat-back/poor-man's Darren Sproles type with Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas. I really like Thomas in 3rd downs though, as he's the best blocker and is good in space for screens or check-downs.

    I do worry if Miami would have to spend more to pay their FAs. I mean, if they let their guys test the market, are those guys gonna take less from another team just because they're pissed at Miami for not locking them up earlier. This is worst-case scenario. Like, would Hartline demand 7 mil from Miami but then settle for 4 from another team just to spite the Dolphins? I understand the human nature logic of it though.

    Getting back to WR, though. I do think if we can get Hartline for a reasonable figure and Jennings, plus what we've got on the roster and non-1st round pick, then we could really use the draft on other serious needs like DB, pass-rusher and MORE O-LINE.

    I'm seein' some crazy stuff in these threads. Saying a 2nd (or lower) draft pick can't equal a 1st round draft pick is insane, especially at WR. TY. Hilton is already better than most of the WRS drafted in the 1st round last year. Unfortunately, he wasn't picked by Jeff the idiot boy. We got a waste-of-skin TE instead.
    Also, people are WAY undervaluing Jennings in here. If Jennings didn't pass your eye test for a #1WR in those December 2012 Packer games then get yer freakin' eyes checked! That man is a baller-extraordinaire at the WR position. His hands rule, his body strength and control and general athleticism trump the field, and his speed is plenty good to get open on any kind of route. You get him the ball down the field with only one man between him and a TD, just start playing the Dolphin Theme song now... With all his injuries and such, I had my doubts too. Then I watched those Packer games and had enough "oooohh" moments to want him on the Dolphins ASAP.

    I remember, the year was 2007. Ted Ginn was the most explosive player there ever was to grace the college playing field. Pat Willis was drafted right behind us. Ted Ginn is in the super bowl, but as a returner, no value guy.


    Ted Ginn isn't an example of why you don't take a WR, he's an example of why you don't reach (and it was a hell of a reach) for a player and why you don't hire idiot talent evaluators. I don't remember reading a single thing saying that was a good pick, outside of a few of the super homer posts on here right after. As for your initial point, I agree that it's certainly not WR or bust with that pick, but a couple of WRs certainly warrant consideration, unlike Ginn where he was drafted when Willis was the obvious choice.

    No, ireland's idea of "addressing the WR position" will be sign Jennings as cheaply as possible, draft Ryan Swope as late as he can get away with, and hope an acorn develops between Fuller and Matthews. If none of that materializes, oh well, guess we are Cornfed, Cornfed, Cornfed again.
    Ryan Tannehill. Ah, what a relief. Life is good.

    Would anybody be interested in Titus Young if the price was cheap? He had a good rookie year in 2011, but has clashed with the Lions and is likely going to be shipped out.

    Greg Jennings
    Keenan Allen
    Brian Hartline
    Davone Bess
    Rishard Matthews

    Get it done.

    Would still have 4 picks in the 2nd and 3rd rounds to fill out whatever needs Miami has, Maybe 2 CBs, a DE, and an OL. Or 2 Cbs a DE and a TE. But I don't see why Miami can't Sign Jennings, Hartline and draft a WR in round 1.

    You know what's funny is that people are a quick to label Greg Jennings as injury prone yet they go on another threading saying Jake Long needs to come back and is not injury prone even though Long obviously is.
