    Default If Tannehill is there at #8, do you take him? Even if Richardson or Blackmon Slips?

    I guess I'm asking two questions, so a poll would be too confusing.

    Question 1 If Tannehill is there at #8 would YOU take him?

    Question 2 If you say yes, would you still take him if either Richardson or Blackmon somehow are still available?




    My answer is yes, I'll take Tannehill at #8. Even over Richardson or Blackmon.

    Production in the running game does not correlate highly with winning. So, definitely I take Tannehill over Richardson if I think he can improve the passing game. Probably over Blackmon too since more often than not great QBs make mediocre WRs look good rather than the other way around.

    I view Richardson and Blackmon as luxuries teams without a franchise QB cannot afford if there are potential franchise QBs available.

    I don't like RBs that high. So Richardson would be out. Heck, David DeCastro is better value IMO.

    WRs can be had later. Especially for this offense. Not sure if I want Tannehill specifically, but I'd take a QB there over those two at 8.

    This season WRs are packed throughout the draft, especially in the offense we will be running. I'd take Tannehill all day there.

    However, I'd perfer to trade down, get a 2nd and draft Weeden late 1st

    I'd take him. Take him and groom him. Let Moore start, we'll presumably have 5 or 6 wins, then we get an impact player in the Top 10 next year.

    That's a really good point I didn't consider. Playing with fire if you want Tannehill though.

    Id rather stock up on good players rather than draft a QB just because....that would be a huge swing n a miss.

    I'd trade out if possible, and accumulate extra picks, then if Tannehill is there in the mid to late take him or Weeden. Just have to be careful a wildcard could be KC that could swoop in and take one so i'd try and stay ahead of Cleveland in the first.

    I would be paranoid that a few teams in the early teams like KC might take Tannehill if he drops to them, otherwise I'd love to trade down and still try to grab Tannehill.

    Trade the pick. No get Tannehill. O crap no trade the pick. Wait draft Tannehill. But Blackmon would be a great pick. Ahh Tannehill for sure.
    AHHHH crap don't pressure me.......
    That's why they play the games!

    It's the same as swinging and missing on any other position, IMO.

    I'd trade down to get an extra second or third rounder, but if there was not a good trade offered? I'd take Blackmon and then trade up into the late first to get Weeden. Reunite those guys, add a TE like Ladrius Green, and the offense suddenly looks very good (probably).

    Qb is the most important position on the field, its much more of a miss bro.

    Your two statements contradict each other. If you don't address it, you're ****ty. If you address it and the guy fails, you're still ****ty.

    If the Dolphins had drafted Matt Ryan, and he turned out to be a bust, where would we be right now?

    So your solution is to not even try to address the most important position on the field? Do you see the problem with this logic? NFL GMs don't build successful teams playing scared.
