    I'm going to go out an limb here. I think there is absolutely zero chance we draft a QB. We have too many holes to fill to be wasting picks on fourth to seventh round QB's. I can see them maybe bringing in an undrafted QB.

    Undrafted free agent is definitely a way they might go. But if a talent like Murray is there in the 4th round it might be hard to pass up. Especially with Moore and Devlin having contracts that expire after this season.

    The Stephen Morris interest though shows that the UDFA route is definitely on the table. If they go that way, it will be Devlin, Rodgers and the UDFA for the 3rd spot. I assume Devlin will keep his job in that case.

    Makes sense only if they plan on cutting Devlin. We have to come away with 3 starting caliber players, and still needs load of depth everywhere else.

    You maybe right and they may go with the guys they have but it's nice they are doing their homework just in case someone they really like falls a little.

    Guess it all depends on if they think Devlin is the guy to backup Ryan should Moore leave next year as Nubs mentioned.
    I don't know the answer to that.

    Like I said just my opinion and you can bust my balls if I am wrong. I would hate it if it happened and I would find it hard pressed if a new GM took a chance on a 4th round QB over filling one of his needs with the best available LB,G,T or a WR in a deep draft. Should be able to find a player there that will contribute next season rather than having a guy that may not see the light of day any time soon. I just don't see the Dolphins as team of having the luxury of making that pick.

    The smart thing to do is plan to develop a young QB with upside. If Murray or McCarron or Garapollo is available when we pick in say the 4th round, he may be the BPA. Despite the fact that we have more immediate pressing needs. Developing a good low cost backup QB frees up a potential cost saving in Matt Moore in a year's time. We will need the extra $5M not too far down the track to help pay for Tannehill. And who knows, Murray could have the ability to become a starting quality QB if nurtured properly by Lazor (his skill is developing QBs eg Foles). I actually think that there is a high probability that we draft a QB in the mid rounds.

    I didn't realize Murray's hands were only 9 1/8. That's kind of borderline. In fact, one friend of mine uses that exact number as the cutoff point. He likes to bet against young quarterbacks with hands below 9 1/8.

    I believe Brett Smith of Wyoming measured at 10 inch hands. I like him as an intriguing mid round prospect.

    I'd even go w/ Mettenberger in the 4th. Call me nuts but I like Connor Shaw as a UDFA too.
    Your opinion & $5.00 will get me a fancy coffee drink at Starbucks.
