    TV Who would you have taken with same picks?

    Now the draft is over, who would you have taken if you was GM? We can look back at this next year, two years and what most consider the right time to judge a draft in 3 years.

    None of us can project trades so, only 2 rules apply. You can stick with the original pick or you can go with the trade made. In other words you cant project your own trades.

    Also you are drafting for Philbin. He wants a character guys with a good work ethic, so certain players must be off the board, for example Tyrann Mathieu.

    Also try to draft without hindsight. In other words draft with the intention of not knowing how next rounds will fall.

    My draft:-

    I love the first 3 picks, but think we missed a trick after trade with Saints. I hated the trade up for Will Davis. I thought we could have picked off on all the talent that fell into round 4.

    1-Dion Jordan-DE/OLB
    2-Jamer Taylor-CB
    3-Dallas Thomas-OT
    4-Barrett Jones-OG/C
    4-Phillip Thomas-SS
    4-Quinton Patton-WR
    5-Joseph Randle-RB
    5-Caleb Sturgis-K
    7-Reid Fragel-OT
    7-Chase Thomas-OLB

    Original picks...I think. We gave up a 4th, 5th, and 7th in the Will Davis trade up after trading with NO, they're back now.
    1. Lane Johnson OT- Just for insurance and the fact that we have more draft picks now.
    2. Jamar Taylor CB
    3. Damontre Moore DE
    4a. Duke Williams S
    4b. Dion Sims TE
    4c. Khaseem Greene LB
    5a. Kenny Stills WR
    5b. Mike Gillislee RB
    5c. Dustin Hopkins K
    Didn't have a 6th.
    7a. Jordan Poyer CB
    7b. Braden Brown OT

    I'd make one change --- Patton instead of Davis in the 3rd. I also may have gambled and taken Wheaton instead of Thomas with the hopes that Thomas would fall a few spots to the original 3rd round pick.

    I was thinking about posting a similar thread, glad someone did.

    You've got the right idea, I agree with a ton of yours, but without the hindsight of Moore being on the board in the 3rd I think Dion would've been my pick. So, without trading back into the 3rd round:
    1. Dion Jordan, DE
    2. Jamar Taylor, CB
    3. Dallas Thomas, OL
    4a. Dion Sims, TE
    4b. Quinton Patton, WR
    5a. Mike Gillislee, RB
    5b. Jordan Poyer, CB
    5c. Dustin Hopkins, K
    7a. Chase Thomas, LB
    7b. Don Jones, S

    Sign: Daryn Colledge
    Draft: 1. LB Ryan Shazier 2. OL Joel Bitonio 3. WR Donte Moncrief 4. OL Brandon Thomas 5. OT Laurent Duvernay Tardif 6. RB Bo Oliver 7. TBD

    LT Albert LG Smith C Pouncey RG Colledge RT Bitonio

    This isn't hindsight. I actually set myself to drafting right along side the Dolphins in real time. If the Dolphins made a trade I agreed with (Davone Bess, the trade down from 82) then I accepted it. If not (trading up from 12 to 3), then I didn't.

    Pick #012: DT Star Lotulelei, Utah
    Pick #042: OT Menelik Watson, Florida State
    Pick #054: TE Travis Kelce, Cincinnati
    Pick #077: WR Stedman Bailey, West Virginia
    Pick #104: S Shamarko Thomas, Syracuse
    Pick #106: OG Brian Schwenke, California
    Pick #109: RB Johnathan Franklin, UCLA
    Pick #146: CB Jordan Poyer, Oregon State
    Pick #164: WR Mark Harrison, Rutgers
    Pick #166: DE Cornelius Washington, Georgia
    Pick #224: OT Xavier Nixon, Florida
    Pick #250: QB Peter Lalich, California (PA)

    Priority Free Agents: DT Darrington Sentimore, DT Kwame Geathers, WR Sam McGuffie, FB Lonnie Pryor, RB Dennis Johnson, TE Joseph Fauria and CB Nickell Robey.

    I like this list quite a bit.

    I did the same Ck as I always do and I didnt include the trade up to number 3 or NO trade but liked and would have traded Bess.
    12)Tyler Eifert TE- This would have been a hard decision between him , Jarvis Jones and Star but I feel with young qb a good all around TE would really aid his devlopment
    42)johnathon Banks CB- Would have hoped for a Trufant or Rhodes fall and would have changed pick if Carradine had fell more. No other corners seemed starters after him. Also liked FSU tackle alot
    54)Terron Armstead T- really liked Lacy with this pick as well as Moore but felt tackles were going off board and some nice pass rusher types were left. Poyer would have been pick if Banks had not been taken
    77)Damontre Moore DE/LB- was pretty irked that two wr's I was targeting were gone Allen and Williams but never expected them there. Bailey was an option but Moore has first round talent.
    82)Steadman Bailey wr- shocked at the two receivers that go ahead of him. too productive . definately a playmaker . not one other player considered here
    104)Barret Jones C-G- was also shocked he was still on board , alex okafor also was gone so basically no brainer to me
    146)Zac Stacy Rb- was a very hard choice between him and the back we actually drafted from Florida but doing what he did at Vandy is quite impressive
    164)Jordan Poyer CB- Liked him much earlier in draft but we had other needs but at this point some of them are filled and he is best on board- really wanting swope but think undrafted fa is way to go
    166)Josh Evans S-like his makeup needs coaching for sure should help as a special teams player
    224)Lerentee McCray OLB- like his potential did alot in some big games for the gators
    250-Tyler Bray qb- always good value to take a chance on a qb that may develop.

    When we drafted kicker I was like great but I was guilty trying to hold out because most kickers in the nfl are not drafted.
    I would sign Zach Brown or and quinn sharp as an undrafted FA love to have sharp because he can help u rest the punter since he is good at kicking and punting
    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.

    I love the Peter Lalich pick and from what I have found so far, no one has picked him up yet. I find that surprising to say the least. he could be serious competition to any team's current #3 QB.
    Time for the 'Phins of the future to play like the 'Phins of the past. Bring it on.
