    as we get deeper into the process that is the NFL Draft, Eifert is probably the best player at #12...

    After a certain while, yeah. If you have an updated web browser, there's usually a private browsing option, and you can view the articles with that. I know it's referred to the "incognito window" on Google Chrome.


    As far as tight ends go, I also do think that either a pass-rusher or Eifert will be taken at #12. I'm about to do a quick 3-round mock in the Draft Forum and spoiler alert, Eifert is the first pick at 12.

    I disagree with that. I think if we wanted to we could easily trade back into the bottom of the 1st and grab Eifert or Ertz.

    I think a very good player that I'd love for the Dolphins to grab is Barkevious Mingo. I think the Combine might've put him into the top 15 to be drafted, which could be enough for Ireland to pull the trigger.

    I like Reed in round 3 a lot more than Eifert at 12.

    Corner or DE would be the best value pick at 12 imo. A good te could be found way later.

    That's just too logical! I don't understand how much draft speculation is being spread out everywhere when you don't know what will happen in free agency, particularly with Miami having that much of money to spend.

    Before the 3rd-4th week of March, it's ridiculous to speculate which guy we will target. Of course, there are players that we know we could be interested but just wait...

    I don't believe Eifert will be there past 15-20, somewhere in there...best case scenario. Someone may jump earlier.

    You have to take into account the renewed importance of impact tight ends in this league now...I am seriously warming up to Eifert at 12, and I seriously hope we get one of the top 3.

    I also want us to come out of this draft with Swope, who I think along with Eifert would fit in nicely in our offense.

    For me, this not being an overly strong defensive draft, I would be OK with an overly offensive draft this year...filling a few defensive holes in free agency.


    I want this offense set up this year, so that Tanny can get comfortable and grow with the receiver corp around him now. It may be a smarter approach than trying to fill every hole in the draft.
    Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.
