I agree with much of what CK said, I also think a playmaking receiver is not off the boards if one slips to the 20's....which is where I think we'll be picking.
This league is primarily about scoring touchdowns with the passing game now, if you can't do that you won't win.
Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.
I wouldn't mind going guard and tackle first two rounds. Maybe like Cyril Richardson or Gabe Jackson in the first and Seantrel Henderson in the second or may even Cyrus Kouandjio/Antonio Richardson/ or Taylor Lewan and Zack Martin or Anthony Steen in the second. Then maybe signing Pitta too a cheap contract because of his ACL injury and possibly Jairus Byrd as long as the Bills can't strike a contract with him. If the Bills don't resign Byrd I'm pretty sure he would love to come to Miami and be apart of young team that will play the Bills twice a year.
I would try and bring back in order Soliai, Grimes, Incognito
A lot could change till then but as of now I would love this for next year
I don't think Lewan makes it to the 2nd round. We have a strong enough core to take the best player in the first round. That's how good teams accumulate talent. Go for need in rounds 2-4 and projects in 5-7.
Hey CK. Lyerla makes a ton of sense, but I still have a hard time seeing Miami going that direction. Cyril Richardson reminds me a little bit of Larry Allen, but I don't know if he moves well enough for this offense - in fact I think Antonio Richardson from Tennessee would be a more likely target. Push comes to shove, I think Louis Nix III or one of the DT's will be the 1st pick. I would also think there's a good chance Miami trades back into the first for offensive line help.

The way the original poster wrote it, he had Lewan in the 1st with a combination of other players in the 2nd.
Best RT available in the 1st round , best G in the second . Miami has good players on every other unit. resigning soliai and grimes is a top priority thou.
In the wake of the Dustin Keller injury you have to start thinking about that position. There were rumors they liked Tyler Eifert a lot. I don't know how much you can believe them, but it's plausible. With all of the Iowa ties on Miami's staff you immediately have to respect C.J. Fiedorowicz as a possibility, but I think I would pay the most attention to Colt Lyerla as he may be more of what Joe Philbin is looking for, especially if they end up confident enough in Dion Sims to be a #2 tight end for them. I like Eric Ebron quite a bit, but I'm undecided on whether Joe Philbin would love him.
And with Paul Soliai and Randy Starks both free agents this offseason you could see them looking at Louis Nix III, Timmy Jernigan or Aaron Donald.
I hate to say it but they may also get tired of trying to separate the wheat from the chaff the hard way at right guard, and so they could opt to make things easier on themselves by going after a Cyril Richardson.
