hope not we dont need a first round situational slot reciecer
I hope he is being considered this team still lacks speed and play makers on offense. It would be a huge mistake to be content with the offensive skill positions the way they are currently. More speed at WR and a big target at TE are a must in this draft.
To me it's pretty obvious Lane Johnson is the target based on the smokescreen Miami is putting on. I'm not thrilled about it either. Austin or Eifert would have a greater impact than any OT in the draft.
I'm not buying this trade up rumour. I do believe they would not pass on one of the top 3 tackles if they fall to 12, which is why I think they are keeping Winston as a fall back option. They are NOT drafting Fluker. I do believe they will add another weapon to the offense if one of 3 tackles doesn't fall, and drafting Austin (I still think Patterson could be in play as well) or trading down (if a good offer comes) are possibilities.
I think they have a gameplan and until it plays out we will not know which way it goes.
It doesn't make sense in a deep draft to acquire these extra picks and then just give them away.
This team is not 1 or 2 players away.
We still need another runner, another WR, A tight end, a couple pieces on the O-line, a pass rusher, DT's to be ready for the final contract years of Soliai and Starks, a cornerback....thats just the essentials.
So, I'd say we need all of our draft picks to land as many of those pieces as we can find,
Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.
The language that seems to have come from Ireland and philbin over recent months speaks to them wanting more playmakers on the team - yes, they need to protect their young QB, so it's going to be an interesting debate if any of the top OT's do fall.
I'm hopoing for a playmaker but I'm afraid they'll take a tackle.
1) Win the next game.
2) See goal #1
