    So Salguero has declared his targets for the first two rounds:

    1 - RB - Todd Gurley
    2 - WR - Chris Conley

    Apart from talent, a big factor for him was that both have irreproachable off-field records.

    Not really heard much off Conley. Not sure if 2nd round is high for him. Maybe not?

    EDIT - He didn't make Mayock's Top 100 and the latest Drafttek board actually had him going to Miami at 191 in the 6th round.

    What would be your two targets in the first two rounds?

    Gordon & Agholor for the same reasons but more combined net talent then Armando's two.

    Or if possible, Gurley & Davis.

    I think the best ROI we could get in this draft are at RB & DT.

    I think the dolphins will take a cornerback and linebacker with the first two picks or at least that is what my crystal ball shows.

    I been warming up to Devante Parker the last two weeks .

    if I had to bet I would bet our draft goes like this .

    rd1 cornerback

    rd 2 linebacker

    rd 4 runingback

    rd 5 a) olineman

    rd5 b) wide receiver

    rd6 if we have a 6th rd pick I would say we draft a tight end.

    I would be satisfied with any of the players listed on this thread so far.

    While I prefer Gurley, Gordon would not upset me in the least.

    I just think if they do take an offensive player in the first round, be it a RB, WR, or even an offensive guard. They have to go defense in round two.

    Even with the addition of Suh, the defense remains the biggest area of need at CB and LB. They just can't afford to wait until the 4th round to find upgrades for these areas IMO.

    A top ten player will drop to us. I'm hoping we draft him. The three on my radar are Brandon Sherff as a OG, Randy Gregory or Dupree as OLBs. To me they are all potential impact players

    I miss Chris Chambers. He is very underrated on this message board.

    No one brings it up because most people realize that all he did was sign his name and he received a little spending money for doing so.

    The NCAA and the schools receive millions of dollars a year because of the talent of players like Gurley, yet he gets suspended for signing his name. It is a ridiculous rule and most people understand this.

    It's not as if he was using drugs, being accused of rape, or violating an actual law. The fact is players should be paid to play in college. It is ridiculous that coaches make millions a year and many of the players barely get enough to eat.

    Manziel was accused of breaking the same NCAA rule while he was at Texas A&M, but he got out of serving a suspension because his family could afford to hire a lawyer, while Gurley accepted responsibly for his actions and served the suspension.

    (for me)

    I'm about that defense.

    I dont think I would be very happy if we picked Gurley. I'm sure he'll be a hell of a RB but we already have a starting RB.

    I guess I'll give my two cents. This is how I'd like to see our draft play out:

    14 (1): Todd Gurley, HB, Georgia
    Gurley is a generational, transcendent talent. It isn't a matter of whether or not Miami will select him at No. 14, but a matter of whether or not he will still be on the board.

    47 (2): T.J. Clemmings, OT, Pittsburg
    Outside of Jason Fox, Miami has no reliable‚Äč backup tackles. This must change, should Branden Albert suffer another setback. To compound the situation, Albert is 30 years old, and statistics show that most offensive linemen embark on a tragic decline at or around the age of 30. Miami must have a plan in place, and Clemmings provides tremendous upside, especially when compared to your next best option... Dallas Thomas.

    111 (4): Tyeler Davison, DT, Fresno State
    Miami's front office has taken a liking to Davison, whom they held a private pre-draft meeting with. There is no question, the second DT job is Earl Mitchell's to lose - but Davison provides absolutely essential depth with the oft-unpredictable Ndamukong Suh on the roster. Davison specializes in versatility in a Jared Odrick-esque mold, and he possesses the potential to someday develop into a long-term starter.

    141 (5): Vince Mayle, WR, Washington State
    Mayle, a dominant redshirt senior, will face a difficult transition into the NFL regarding opposing talent. However, his playing time at Washington State helped to familiarize him with professional style offenses. This will go a long way in training camp, and it gives the former team captain a chance to unseat LaRon Byrd, Michael Preston, or Matt Hazel as a potential member of the 53-man roster.

    142 (5): Lynden Trail, DL/LB, Norfolk State
    Trail is the draft's biggest mystery. While character concerns have once clouted his past, his work ethic is not in question; he wants to be special. Dennis Hickey in particular has grown fond of the tweener from Norfolk State. Trail brings versatility as a hybrid defensive end/linebacker, very much in the mold of Dion Jordan. He is the unusual. He is a leader. He is a winner. He is exactly what Miami needs to become.

    175 (6): Tray Walker, CB, Texas Southern
    Incredibly raw player on tape (only 27 starts under his belt), but his outstanding physical traits will see him drafted in the late rounds. In college, Walker would shut down virtually all of his opposition (albeit, it was weak opposition). To add to his resume, he isn't afraid to make tackles in open space. With a little coaching, this small school corner could push veterans Zack Bowman, T.J. Heath, and Will Davis, while providing insurance for a future without Brent Grimes.

    This could really happen. And my dream Draft would be perfect if LB Eric Kendricks falls to us in the 2nd.

    If its about defense than you should want another DT instead of a #2 CB. Next year might be a different story, but this year while we still have Grimes at the #1, the 3rd DT is way more important and will have a bigger impact. Besides, the only bad thing about Taylor is his injuries, he's actually a solid corner.
