    well Like most of us this evening I'm dissapointed with what Miami has done so far. Then it hit me, perhaps the trading of Marshall for 2 third round picks is ammo for us to move up a few slots and get Blackmon and start over with a new Younger version of Marshall. It you think about it, it does make some sense here is why.
    1. We traded a top 6 WR
    2. We have Winston coming for a visit and he takes care of the RT spot we could draft.

    There isn't a lot of other scenarios in which to get excited so hopefully there is a silver lining.

    As i've said before... would be awesome if we pulled Blackmon off.... will we? Doubt it.

    and Winston has a lot of other teams to go visit.

    Edit: On a seperate note, I really hope WR Moore gets some more field time.

    Who would we trade with? Cleveland? Tampa?

    Edit: I'm trying to get ahold of a pretty up-to-date and intelligent Bucs fan friend of mine to see what he thinks about all this especially after vjaxx

    With Tampa getting VJax I can see them trading back and thinking about taking Claiborne or maybe even Richardson. We would clearly have to get ahead of the Rams at least. Cleveland is a mystery a little bit until they get QB situated. They can easily go with Blackmon, but also could easily go defense.

    I would be happy to get Blackmon, think he will be a stud in the NFL and it would lessen the sting of Marshall leaving, and may indicate we have some sort of actual plan.

    Can we nickname him Optimus Prime and have a Transformers showdown when we play the Lions?

    Justin Blackman will not hold a candle to Calvin Johnson.

    Just saying.
    Calvin Johnson is probably the most physically gifted WR since Randy Moss.

    Justin Blackman can likely develop into.......Brandon Marshall.

    IMO Calvin Johnson is best the WR in the NFL.
    So it's a tall order to be even close before he steps on the field.
    No reason to sell Blackmon short.
    It is really a tough comparison.

    I thought the exact same thing: Best case scenario, imo:

    1. Sign Winston (lock up both OT's for next 5 yrs).
    2. Sign Flynn (decent QB competition).
    3. Put team in position to draft good WR (perhaps 2) and other need positions.

    I like that.

    This is my ideal situation atm.... But I won't even get my hopes up for half of it to happen, Just can't.

    Brandon Marshall with good hands.

    I really think Marshall messed up the feeling in the hands/arm when he "slipped" and gashed his forearm open on a glass table. I don't see him regaining his sure hands ability.

    Blackmon is the best receiver by far and deserves to be picked at #3...Send the picks to Minnesota or drop and take Alshon.

    Exactly. It's kind of like drafting Tannenhill but being down on him because he isn't as good as Peyton Manning in his prime.

    If we sign Flynn I really wouldn't mind trading up to get Blackmon but I just doubt it happens.

    What red-flagged me about Blackmon - though his college productivity was massive - was his size. At the Combine he measured 6'1, 207; a week later he barely runs under 4.5. That would be fine if he were, as listed in college, in the 6'3, 220+ range. I have to wonder if he will be as dominant in the pros without a big size/speed advantage. Megatron went 6'5, 236 and ran a 4.35 40! Those #'s are off the charts. He makes Blackmon look like a smurf.

    I'd rather wait for Floyd (even trade down a slot or two); Floyd is a stellar blocker, runs as fast as Blackmon, and has serious size (6'3, 220). That's not all to receiving (not by a mile); but Floyd also has shown good hands, makes big catches and runs solid routes. If he's healthy, he has some potential.

    I also have a feeling Blackmon will fall a bit given his ht/wt/speed measurables. Some will always say, "look at the kid play" - I've heard that too many times. Not saying he may not be a very good WR but I don't think he's a sure bet.

    What about Kendall Wright? We might even be able to drop back a few slots, grab a pick and take him? It'd be nice to have a true vertical threat and then have Hartline and Bess as our possession guys.
