To really appreciate GB you need to watch his every play games instead of just the highlights. He is really a special back.
    My only problem with Gio and Lacy is the offensive lines they played with were so dominant that it's really hard to gauge just how good they are.

    I love Lonnie Pryor. If we draft him, Jorvoski and Daniel Thomas all instantly become expendable

    Many thought Jonas Gray was a steal as a UFA from Notre Dame. What's the take on him? Is he healthy? Is he any good? Is he a sleeper the Dolphins stashed on IR? Do we still need to draft a RB?

    Hard to Judge Thomas while he played behind Bush during the two best years of his career. I think he's a capable back at worst.

    We wouldn't have picked up an undrafted player and then stashed him on IR if the coaches weren't curious to see what he can do when he is fully healthy, which he should be by now.

    I actually liked Daniel Thomas coming out of college, but he fumbles too much, and he keeps getting his bell rung constantly. Call a spade, a spade and draft Gio Bernard.

    I hear alot of fans suggest signing a veteran RB to work along miller for a one two punch. I also hear we don't need any help we will have Jonas gray to help carry the load. IMO I am against signing a aging veteran to a one year deal. I want to see continuity at the position. Gray is a good prospect but we really don't know what we have yet. I think the dolphins should raise their odds and use a early pick on a RB that can help miller be a dual threat. Someone that would compliment him very well. Gray to me , if healthy can be our 3rd down back or goal line guy but I mean someone could could be on the field at the same time as miller and be just as dangerous. To me , that guy is Andre Ellington out of Clemson . He's quick he can catch and he will run up hill. I really believe those two would cost less than what bush cost last year alone and will rattle defenses like you wouldn't believe . Watch some tape on the guy, he's no joke and if we can get him late in the 2nd or early in the 3rd, that would be a great addition to the backfield.
    We are looking to improve every offensive position

    Jonas Gray is what he is, crap college player who will be nothing more than TC fodder, and completely overrated by many Dolfans. (just like Pruit, Wallace, Devlin, etc...)

    I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious

    Not sure why we aren't considering Chris ivory in a trade. The guys a beast and we have the late round ammo to get it done without most people even noticing less picks on draft day(s). Would give up a 4th in a heartbeat. Plus we could keep him from going to the Jets. He's young and runs like a madman.
