    It's a passing league and the goal of this offseason should be putting talent around Ryan Tannehill. Look how Indianapolis drafted with Peyton Manning early in his career and what Denver has assembled on offense around Peyton.

    The Dolphins have no running game, one of the worst offensive lines in football (better with the signing of Albert) and an average group of wide receivers. It just makes so much sense in a draft loaded at the wide receiver position to get one of the top guys. I would love to see Miami get Mosley or Shazier in R1, but if the team goes in another direction and takes Cooks or Lee I would be pretty happy.

    I think Miami can get starting offensive lineman in R2 and R3.

    Many reasons to look at WR, deep class, passing league, cap reasons, but you can't ignore Miami has three WR's coming off season ending knee injuries as well.

    Even discussing a WR is so un-Ireland, having a different GM is so refreshing.
    I would take Mosely at 19, and draft a WR with the 2nd

    It's deep, but like any draft, that doesn't mean any player from r1 to r7 will be a home run. I like the guys they're bringing in, Moncrief, Bryant and Beckham are three of the most worthwhile investments in the draft at the position, from my viewing of this class.

    Yes, there is quality right through to guys like Norwood, who in another draft might go in the third or fourth. But not every player, even in the higher rounds, is a guaranteed stud, so you have to do your DD and spend your picks wisely on this rich seam of receiver talent.

    Another thing that is intriguing is the fact that as of late they have been bringing in tackles to Davie that are projected to later rounds. I would not be too surprised if they did indeed went for a WR with the 1st Rnd.

    I actually want a WR or TE early we need an extra weapon on offense so we can explode but the oline can't be overlooKed either

    You can't make talent up. If you look at past drafts, you'll find sometimes there's very little to be had at certain positions, much more at others. If you don't take what is there and try to fill your needs anyway, you will get burned. I hope we do the smart thing.
    Why so gloomy?

    I agree. Way to much talent in the draft to not do our due diligence.

    Another reason for this may be that they're not sure what they're gonna get with Gibson coming off of his major knee injury.

    Todd McShay also thinks Miami might end up taking a WR at #19, because he thinks the top Offensive Lineman are going to be off the board, and we may have a tough time trading down if that is the case. I like Marqise Lee, but I like Brandin Cooks at WR even more. Watch the way this somewhat smaller (5'10", 190 lbs, 4.33 in the 40) WR can catch the ball in traffic, even with a couple guys draped all over him. He's also always been durable. This is why I would love Brandin Cooks. Watch this video:
