    BooM or Bust Mock

    We need playmakers.
    That much is a given. Here's a mock that would provide us with just that. It's not without risk of course (injuries and or character issues).
    It may not even be that realistic, although I don't hunk it's out if the realm
    Of possibility to hit on a number of these. Starting with a trade down is unlikely, but it was more
    Fun to think about it this way.
    It's highly unlikely that JI and Philbin share my draft strategy or philosophy, but would be interested in what you all think.

    1 WR Patterson (trade down to 20 and still get to snag him, talk about open field vision RAC!)

    2 TE Eifert (I've seen 2 mocks
    Recently putting him in 2nd, will open up the seam, can block too)

    2 DE Carredine (injury drops him, we pull the trigger, may need to wait a year, but worth the risk)

    2 WR Bailey (another playmaker for Tanne)

    3 FS Rambo (another playmaker, some risk here, but would be a great tandem with jones)

    3 OLB Thomas (evergthing you want in a LB, a welcome addition to help with pass rush and boost LB depth, of which we have none!)

    4 CB Matthieu (playmaker...also a risk, but at this stage, also worth the risk)

    5 OT Nixon (may not last til 5th.)

    6 OG Uzzi (supp pick)

    7 DE Kruger (thanks CK for the recent post.CBS has him as the #22 DE prospect, rd7/udfa!)

    7 TE Fauria (hope he's more than Joey haynos v2.0), and can provide a redzone/endzone threat with his height).

    Or could take a flyer on RB Lattimore here if he's miraculously still on the board.

    Offense:
    WR Patterson
    WR Bailey
    TE Eifert
    TE Fauria
    OT Nixon
    OG Uzzi

    Defense:
    DE Carredine
    DE Kruger
    OLB Thomas
    CB honey badger
    S Rambo

    As a UF fan, Xavier Nixon is not what the pundits make him to be. He was a disappointment at Florida. He was serviceable, but when he came out of HS, he was supposed to be the next great OL and that never happened. More of a finesse player that does not have that search and destroy attitude. Maybe in the right scheme he can blossom, but in 4yrs. at UF he never distinguished himself. JMHO.

    Sorry, but that is the sorriest strategy that could ever be employed. Pure garbage.

    You would be the first to crucify Ireland if the "BPA" just happened to be QB, LT, QB and linebacker. And that could be the real result of a BPA strategy.

    You would cry like a little girl.

    BPA within reason obviously. You just drafted Tannehill, you aren't going to draft Geno Smith and Matt Barkley if they are on the board. But he's right, Miami could use guys on the DL, LB, DB, OL, WR, TE, etc. . . . don't need to stess WR early if there is a stud LB there . . . take the guy you have rated higher. If its close, go with the position of need. But if you have a clear cut head and shoulders above the next guy . . . you take him, even if the "next guy" is a position of weakness. Just don't fill needs, get better as an overall team.

    I believe he should have said

    Round one: Best player available at a posistion of need.
    Round two A: Best player available at a posistion of need.
    Round two B: Best player available at a posistion of need.
    Round three: Best player available at a posistion of need.

    Which is what he actually meant most likely.

    I'd be shocked if we did that but yeah, I'd be happy with it. Patterson, Eifert, Rambo and Thomas all look like great picks to me. I could live with the rest even if they were all busts, because I'm convinced the 4 I mentioned were all good players.
