With the 21st pick in the 2017 NFL Draft...

That's about where we'll be picking next year.
We've got to take the best rated MLB on the board with that pick.

Am I wrong here?

Linebackers, linebackers, linebackers. If I were in charge, I might use every pick in this draft on a LB! OK, just kidding, but that is such a huge hole on this team and has to be addressed.

Outside of that, I'd probably look for at least one pass-rushing DE, given Wake's age, and at least one Center, given Pouncey's injury history.

LB
DE
C

are musts. Everything else is optional to me. Including CB, which is something I never thought I'd be saying at this point in the season. But Lippett has come on, Xavien Howard is an up and coming guy, and Byron Maxell got his shit together the second half of the season, to the point that CB is - to me - not a glaring weakness now.

It would probably be good to draft at least one OT as well, given BA's injury history. Or, if you assume that Tunsil will move to Tackle sooner than later, draft a Guard to replace Tunsil.

I agree LB and a Corner. I wish Jones was healthy this playoff run......but Kiki has stepped up.

We still need a consistent Center and some fresh blood on the Oline as depth.

LB
CB
C
RT/LT

we are looking good.We are at the point that our nucleus is built we need to build around it.

GO MIAMI!!!

One of the problems I see coming up is Miami may not resign Stills.

If Miami doesn't, another WR will be a need, unless the brass thinks Caroo will be able to handle the position.

The Pats seem to go through recievers pretty often. I think it's more about the system. I'm more concerned about losing Landry.

GO MIAMI!!!

We need at least 2 lb's in the draft and maybe one in free agency. Upgrade wherever we can at the position and that includes Alonzo. People comparing Alonzo to Zach is a travesty. People are getting a hard on for him like they were for Misi. Hope we don't drop big money on him to have him back.

CB are ok maybe bring in an affordable free agent. Lippett and Maxwell's play improved as the season went on. They grew with the system. That's what you want to see.Howard played well as a rookie.
3 cb that are over 6' tall is good to have. McCain won some and lost some in the slot.

A safety and a wr too. The same for Stills as Alonzo if we sign him don't spend the big bucks.

Bringing in some linebackers and solidifying the oline should get to priority this offseason.

We have alot of good players coming back from IR next season.

We are going to be contenders! We started out #32 on many Power rankings. We are a Top Ten team now with many starters out.
Thats GASE. thumbs updrinking smiley

I read that since Kiko Alonso missed an entire year that Miami can tender him for $1.8M next year. Miami definitely needs 2 LB through the draft and/or free agency. Misi is likely to retire (and injury prone). Jenkins is a free agent and also injury prone.

Miami could use a young DE, but they may need depth depending on the free agency. Going into 2017, Miami has Wake, Fede, Mario Williams, and Dion Jordan under contract. Branch and Jones are free agents. Mario Williams is a very likely cut for salary & salary cap reasons. IMO Dion Jordan is a long shot to make the team.

Even though LB is probably biggest priority, DE and CB are highest paid defensive positions at this time, so it may make sense for Miami to pick up a DE or even CB if that is the BPA in the 1st round. It would easy & cheaper to add a LB in free agency.

Miami should have plenty of cap room to sign the free agent players on their team that they want to. The main free agents are Stills, Branch, Jenkins, and Sims. I assume Miami will let Jenkins go. They are currently $29M under the projected cap and plus $8M roll over from this year or about $37M and that is before they do something about Mario Williams and Misi which would open up another $10M.

Pouncey , I'd like to know more about his condition. Hes great but has he ever started 16 games in a season?

Its a tough position , but its crucial to the running game and success.

GO MIAMI!!!

Pouncy is also signed for another 4 years. I think Miami would get minimal cap relief but cutting him. Unless he is truly injured and can not play, Miami probably won't move away from him for another year.

This conversation feels like a dirty one. Can we at least wait until we get eliminated? lol. I thought the only teams talking draft right now are the one's who did not make the playoff's? Then again I guess it's probably habit for us Phins fans at this point. lol. We desperately need to draft linebacker help

Chill. It is just another way of asking who do u think we should draft next. It is not being negative.

I don't see a problem in talking about the draft at this point.

We all know what Miami's needs will be, so it is just fun to throw out our ideas and see what others think.

BPA at LB and DE.
