We have a lot of needs on this team. We need WR, ILB, OLB, NT, FS, Catching TE and maybe a RB prospect. But some of these positions we need for the future in case Jason Ferguson or Ronnie Brown get injured again. These need to be addressed but I put a slightly lesser importance than positions that need immediate starters. This thread isn't to discuss all our needs for the Dolphins. It's to discuss immediate needs. The following positions need new starters for 2010. 1. ILB we desperately, desperately need new starters at ILB. Channing Crowder and Akin Ayodele are talented backups. They are solid place holders but they are not playmakers. A 3-4 defense depends on it's LB's to make the big plays and inside we have no one who can now. 2. Strong side OLB. Having JT and JP at OLB is a failed experiment. They are both natural weakside OLB pass rushers. We need to cut one or both and have a real LB here. Someone who can put some pressure and help open things up for the weak side guy. 3. Free Safety. Similar situation as OLB. We have 2 strong safeties instead. I think unless Cris Clemons shows he can be a starting FS we need to cut Gibril Wilson and draft one fairly early. Also if we draft one we waste half the season being timid about playing him. This FO is very conservative about developing players and taking a long time to start them. I think that cost us a few games this year. They need to desperately get serious about the FS position. 4. WR. No surprise here. We have 3 guys who can catch but don't have break away speed in Hartline, Bess and Camarillo. And we have one KR with bad hands in Ted "Downy" Ginn. I think we need to cut ties with Downy, get whatever value we can for him and acquire a true WR in his place. Even if we keep him we really need to use him where his talents lie as a KR/PR and not try to force him to be a WR. I feel he simply does not have the hands, head or heart to be a WR. No matter how many times you try the round peg does not fit into the square hole! Those 4 positions need new starters. TE depending on how Joey Haynos develops might become a position of need. Fasano at this time doesn't look like the TE of the future for us at this stage. RB and NT need to be addressed for 2011. Jason Ferguson and Ricky Williams will probably retire after 2010 and their production will need to be replaced. We might still have Ronnie Brown but with his injury history we will need another RB. I think we could possibly address RB, TE and NT in the 2011 draft. But if we draft them next year they could possibly not start til late 2011 til maybe even 2012 depending on how conservatively they develop them. But this draft is vital. We need immediate help this year at ILB, OLB, WR and FS. And depending on Ronnie Brown's situation and Jason Ferguson's it might be worse. This draft we can't afford to whiff on. We can't afford for them to look for the diamond in the rough. We need them to draft players with talent and not long term prospects. Players who can make an immediate impact from the beginning of the next season. What do you guys think? Where do you feel we need immediate starters and how best to fix our weaknesses?
