    Which of the following would you prefer...

    B. Albert for R. Starks and maybe a late pick
    OR
    L. Johnson for a 1st and 3rd round pick

    xavier rhodes is a BORDERLINE 1st round pic.

    he isnt scheme versitile, doesnt fit our scheme and isnt a ball hawk. ALL the things we need!!

    MARCUS TRUFANT is LEAP YEARS better than rhodes and is everything rhodes isnt and EVERYTHING miami needs in a cb.

    i just do not understand all this rhodes hype. especially him going to us at #12!! and they are thinking cb, it wont be rhodes, it will be trufant.

    after milliner, there isnt a cb worth the #12 pic other than trufant and hayden. but, haydens almost 2 seasons removed from playing and coming off an achillies makes him to big a risk to go that high. but even with the injury, i would take a red flagged hayden over rhodes. with no injury, hayden absolutely would have been the 1st cb taken in this draft.

    so, IF miami stays at #12, ........ .

    if they are NOT going cb and cant trade up or down, CHANCE WARMACK will be the pic. [yeah, you dont take guards that hi, yayd-yada...] but warmack is another of those other worldly talents at his position and it was rumored that ireland and company were ga-ga over him at the senior bowl. same as they were with oderick, who also was rumored to be coveted by the finz at the senior bowl. and we know what happened there. ireland isnt the smoke screen genious he is being made out to be right now. hope he doesnt play poker!!

    if staying at #12, it will be trufant, warmack or one of the pass rushing ends. it should be AUSTIN, but, i dont think ireland is forward thinking enough and he will probably be gone to the jets or bills before we pic.

    but it WONT be rhodes [a good thing!].

    Buffalo is known for not doing the predicted thing in the first round. GM Buddy Nix already said that they are not drafting a guard so strike off Warmack & Cooper. I also don't see them taking Geno as I believe Nassib is the #1 QB on their board & will get him by trading back into the tail end of round one. Of the remaining prospects projected to be available at #8 Zeke Ansah makes the most sense. Mario Williams is the only legitimate DE on the team & Mark Anderson is nothing more than a pass rush specialist.

    considering i probably can't get the first for that price the latter...now if you say a 2nd and a late pick for albert or a 1st and a 3rd for johnson i may go johnson...i like his upside more and i like controlling him for the next 5 years at about half the rate albert is likely gonna command...

    Warmack didn't accept his invitation to the Senior Bowl.

    actually i just may be changing it to dj hayden...why not??? if he's cleared for medical and i have a high round 1 grade on him and i think he'd fit our defense like a glove and he's as physical as any corner in the class and has elite tools...why am i projecting rhodes over him...

    oh wait...it's not what i would do...it's what i think miami will do...hmmm...you know...let me think about it...

    sorry if somebody asked this I skimmed the thread and didnt notice it, what type of compensation does Miami have to give KC for #1? with the rumor of wanting Joeckel in mind... I know you think Lane Johnson is the real target who I guess could be had at #6 if the browns trade down. I assume that is a situation where Miami only gives up a 2nd rounder

    I love Hayden. He is the player I want to somehow end up a Miami Dolphin more than any other player in the whole draft.

    well i think lane johnson is the real target if it's not gonna be albert in trade...but ireland may have also figured he had to get in front of detroit at #5 to get one of the top tackles and that the price to get there was too high thus the albert discussions progressing...just spitballing here...

    as for the price to get to #1 i imagine it's pretty steep...probably pick #12 a 2nd and a 3rd...and thats if kc REALLY REALLY wants to drop that far...i wouldn't go by the draft value chart it seems to me that since the new cba the price to trade up has dropped somewhat...but it still would be very pricy to get to #1...i don't think it's in play at all to be honest
