    Corner Discussion

    Most of the conversation concerning the draft is about offensive linemen and for good reason. No doubt, Miami has to make improving the offensive line a priority in free agency and the draft. There are other areas that need upgrades for the Dolphins. It would be great to find a shutdown corner opposite Grimes, assumming Miami is able to resign him.

    Anyway, it doesn't seem like there's a consensus number 1 corner in this draft but it seems there are a lot of good ones out there who figure in the 1st and 2nd round discussion. Wanted to throw it out to our draft guru's as to who you'd like if the team grabbed a corner early. Here are a few who are discussed by most experts. Underclassmen will add a couple more.

    Darqueze Dennard, Michigan State
    Jason Verrett, TCU
    Justin Gilbert, OK. St.
    E.J. Gaines, Missouri
    Kyle Fuller, Virginia Tech

    You'll get Roby from OSU and Ekre-Olamu from Oregon.

    I think Roby would make a good free safety. Thoughts?

    I haven't seen enough of his play to really know. I think free safety needs to be a play maker and solid tackler. I'm not sure how good Roby is at tackling.

    What do you guys think of the Florida corners? Roberson has some game to him, not crazy about Purifoy, Watkins could be a nice project.

    Let's hope Jamar Taylor pans out......I wouldn't want a secondary heavy draft 2 years in row.

    I'd take LaMarcus Joyner of Florida State over any Florida D-Back, and Joyner is also a great kick returner... unlike Thigpen. Joyner is not that tall, around 5-8, but he can really cover guys and tackle.

    I really wish Taylor would have had more playing time this year. As it is, we really don't know if he is the answer or not. Liked him a lot as a prospect heading into the draft so hopefully he does pan out. Even if he does, having a lot of good corners is never a bad thing.
