Incredible "rumour" here:

I think it's worth considering that Griers ongoing strategy will be to convert talent into picks on a regular basis, keeping only essential...
Here's one to watch:
Over Smith, Chase, and even Pitts?
I haven't really watch much of Waddle at all. For a good while he always came in...
I will say, I'm not sure Grier has any 'no matter what' scenario - except perhaps:
I've been pondering the possibility of trading up AND adding at least one mid round pick this year. It's a highly contingent scenario but......
I think the value is at the heart of all of this. If they're going to consider it I think it's going to be because:
1. A unique player isn't...
"If we..." - that's my point. There's nothing in these rumours, or anywhere else, to suggest that the Dolphins are going to move back and do so at...
You seem to be jumping the gun here.
The draft board is the draft board. If they traded up to stand a chance at a guy and he's not there, better...
I put most of this in a comment on the thread about centers but I think it's interesting and significant enough that it's worth having its own...
6 to 9 then Waddle over Smith...
Would a speedster like Waddle make Fuller and/or Grant irrelevant?
Well then - any takes on the recent announcement of the European super league and Liverpool's part in it?

I've been a big fan of Sewell and he was my preferred pick for a while but I've changed my position now based on our situation at tackle. Jackson...
A trade back from either 6 or 18 is something I'm suspecting but not until draft night. As has been suggested by others, the move back up to 6 was...
Definitely. It's not easy because it means familiarity with the prospects in the draft. I'm certainly no expert, I've been tying to become...
Since we can't draft all other positions in the first round which ones do you think we can wait on to draft later?
I wouldn't take the player because:
Ja'Marr Chase LSU WR - ...Pitts is on the board or if I'm Grier and I prefer Smith or Waddle....
For my part I think our first pick has to go on a true blue chip player.
Pitts is unique prospect in this draft. There is no TE like him and his...
Which positions can we address later in the draft and which players are truly worthy of our first round picks?
For example, Najee is likely...
Let me say that if a reduced preseason workload really does improve gameplay and make for better football, fewer injuries etc. then I'm all for...
Not to be cynical but it seems at first glance that they're...
That, to me, sounds like it has a lot more to do with a reduced preseason workload than avoiding COVID.

This is exactly what I think they were saying.

Before I start, let me just take a moment's silence for the previous version of this post that took me a decent amount of time to write and edit,...
What would prove extremely frustrating is a scenario where we see little drastic improvement in our run game, and then also our pass game, due to...
It opens with a summary of takes we've already heard from Flores, Fitzpatrick and others. Then he spends some time talking about his views on...
I'll see if I can add some soon.
I've started listening to more podcasts via Spotify on my phone when on a commute or having to walk between...
Another one high on Tua:
Just trying to understand... if Pitts wasn't there at 6 you'd trade back from 18 or 6?
Is Slater the guy want at 18, rather than trade up or back?
A few scenarios playing around with a trade back at 18, and where possible, trading back to gain mid round picks by dropping spots:
Assuming we keep #6 where it is and grab either Pitts or a WR1, what's your preference for our pick at #18?
Trade up, stay pat, trade back?
Cowherd tries so hard to bait Pennington into supporting one of his horrible takes but Pennington isn't biting.

Which positions are true strengths for the Dolphins, needing no changes?
Do the consensus mocks take into account that some mocks don't allow for trades?
I know! But it was there, so I took it! :D Still, the point is, if Grier sees someone worth nabbing, maybe he can swing a deal and use that future...
In some scenarios where Pitts is gone, I'm trying to wean myself off my Sewell addiction by just taking one WR and then waiting until 18.
I've been playing around a little with the idea of using one of those extra 1st round picks in 2023 to move up high this year and snag another...
Schefter podcast - interview with Najee:
Najee section starts around 7:40
If we're at 6 and Pitts and our WR of choice are there, or possibly Sewell, then we trade up from 18 and secure 7 or maybe 8. Then we pick twice....
Happy Resurrection Sunday!
He is risen!
1 - Jaelan Phillips
2 - Kwity Paye
3 - Jayson Oweh
4 - Rashad Weaver
5 - Dayo Odeyingbo*
*Recent injury notwithstanding.
Discussion starts at:...
Is this guy the savvy pick at 6?
Beyond any pass catcher we improve both the run and pass games. Potentially more impact than any other non-QB.
I also don't think he falls to 18. It'll either have to be 6 or else move up from 18.
Already can! :D
Interesting point though - is it that prevalent - and how dominant is it? Are there English/Spanish divides, or has a sort of...

In terms of Smith himself, he certainly doesn't seem to lack strength despite being light for his height:
A lot of talk about Devonta Smith weighing in at 170 - and slim with it. There's an understandable fear that at the pro-level he'll be susceptible...
I have thought the same thing. My guess is it's a comfort thing. Reports about his attitude in college and from some Miami players were that he's...
See the other thread! :D
Well, this is the million dollar question. Which one of those guys is going to fall at all? You maybe keep your eyes open and wish for it, and if...
I get that, but at the same time, your odds on hitting a home run decrease the later you're hitting, so there's a solid argument for 'see talent,...

Thanks for the detail.
Let me ask - Does Pitts not bring the same scrappiness as Chase? If he does, why choose Chase over Pitts?

To play devil's advocate - can/should Pitts really play as quick and deep as one of the best WR prospects? Would we be better off with a true WR...
Let me press you - why would Pitts do that more than any of the top WR prospects?
Any WR1 or Pitts? Which is it?
Talk me into or out of either one.
I understand all the reasoning behind Pitts or Chase or Smith but I'll just naturally be happiest if we can take Sewell.
I know we took recent...
My first thoughts turned to Kyle Pitts, that man has put some serious moves on people, and then with his size that has to be a match up nightmare....

Sewell (IF he's there)
Pitts Chase Smith
Lots and lots of Tweets saying the same thing right now:
If so then:
Atlanta = Pitts or Trade back?
Spend more of that capital and move the second pick up from 18.
Grab a catcher and the LB. Maybe two catchers.
First and second round we have to...
We're basically guaranteed our choice of Pitts, Smith, Chase or Waddle. I'm not big on Waddle, but I won't be crying about picking any of the others.
That's the gamble they've taken.
Tua is 100% getting his shot. Let's hope the crimson assassin shows up and starts to murder defenses.
Our odds on getting Sewell are very slim now because he has to be the Bengals' pick at #5, right?
Unless they trade back.
I'm a little sad about...
Slight language warning:
At the top of the thread.
Have a go and if you can't figure it out I'll sort it.
Well, well, well!
We've traded back and acquired capital.
At 6 who do you want?
And would trade up from 18 to get anyone or stay put?
At six I...

No there isn't a huge difference - a point you have made but never tried to explain - and it's not what you were saying originally.

Which bit? The bit where she says, "If I don't have a question....I'm going to trade down..."?
Or the bit where Florio talks about QB's other than...
0:43-0:49 "if I have any question at all that Tua is the real deal I'm drafting a quarterback".
Apparently you're wrong.
But not because you think drafting a second QB is silly, but because you think Rosen was the better choice in the first place, right?
Is anyone calling the Cardinals silly for drafting Kyler Murray after Rosen the year before?

With all the QB talk this year, and our focus on WRs etc. it looks like LT Penei Sewell is being overlooked.

No one said that was the fault of the staff. No one said he doesn't bear some responsibility. The point is to ask what responsibility the...
