    While I too an not overly enamored with the wideouts! The O-line is still in worse shape we can't run or pass effectively if the line isn't up to par! Pick up a couple of linemen and maybe a wideout later! Still havr other needs like LB and maybe RB. Aside from the line.

    not to mention keeping the QB upright. what's good about having stud WR's, if the oline sucks and the qb gets hurt?

    it really depends. does the team want to risk waiting in the 2nd or 3rd round, and those lineman get taken before Miami can draft? essentially not getting any lineman they wanted, on their board?

    The stupid **** people come up with. It doesnt matter if you have Jerry Rice and Randy Moss. You aren't getting them the ball without an oline

    I think that Hartline, who is far from a HOF WR, may differ with that opinion.

    Seriously I don't know how people can come up with some of this crap. If we were in a true BPA position, taking a wr would be great. but major holes everyone =/= using a pick on a capable unit. It would be like taking d-line in the 1st

    Plain and simple.

    If we do not walk away from the draft with a starter caliber RT and OG we are screwed.

    Period.

    we might have to settle for the 5th best tackle at #19, but we can most likely still get the top guard

    The line didn't allow for him to. You may not realize but a QB has to step into the pass for an effective deep pass. It's also coaching. You have to target Wallace early, easier to hit a 30 or 40 yard pass then 50 or 60. Th pocket stays clean too

    I'm not trying to say we don't need oline help (or that this is a reason not to draft a WR) but Tannehill struggled to throw a good deep ball even when he was able to step up cleanly.
    Not every human is a manipulative, opportunistic, letch... or at least that's what I'm told.
