Trade #54 for Brandon Albert
Trade up from #12 to #6 for one of the big 3 LT's
Stay put and draft as is
I'd rather the phins take Armstead with pck 2b or 3a.
I'm curious to see Yeatman in the ZBS & hope he can be the 3rd OT.
Controversy creates cash - Eric Bischoff
im just worried we would pay him more than he is worth. We have to make some cap conscious moves
I say stay put and draft an O-lineman in round two or three.
Trade #54 for Brandon Albert as long as we pay him less than what Long got from St. Louis.
First of all, I hope we don't have any underage or otherwise disqualified voters.
My vote is to stay put. I hate being roped into an option solely because it's the most obvious and available one at a given point in time. Would we care about Albert a year ago, or a year from now? We're concerned about Martin at left tackle and this guy is out there. Who gives a flip? I'm not interested in checking something off the list if it's not an ideal solution. We're a long way from legit contender and I'm not convinced this guy does anything for us. He's known as a self centered player, dating to Virginia. Nice agility. Better pass blocker than recent Jake Long. Not a run blocker or particularly tough. He wants one big contract while still in his prime. At that point I'm not confident he won't be a convenient Murphy's Law candidate, as others have put it.
The Miami Dolphins are going to be exponentially more concerned with how Albert performs, or how the team performs, than Albert will be. I remember the early '70s when we avoided guys like this. The lockerroom and therefore the post game radio show on WIOD were eerily silent after a rare defeat. Now we check boxes off a list and load up on guys who don't fully care. Then we wonder what went wrong.
ill go with neither
target pass rusher/db with the first rounder, and Kyle Long/Armstead with the second rounder.
Dont give up a second rounder in order to mightily overpay an ot. And of course dont draft one with a first rounder.
trade down or take a tackle, cb and te with our top 3 picks, in any order. i don't want Albert and his bad back for a ton of cash while losing a pick.
I think if the reason we didn't resign Long was money, and we want to draft expensive players, then Albert should not be an option unless hes willing sign a bargain deal. With that in mind this draft has players up and down the board, and we have more holes to fill than just OL. So I either stay at 12 and take BPA, most likely a CB and a 2nd rd OL, or trade back, maybe with Minn, and get CB and OL in the 1st.
I'm becoming a fan of Menelik Watson. The guy is very athletic, and demonstrated solid skills after only playing football for a few seasons. He has room to improve and can probably be had with our 2a.
