Sam. Trying to have some fun here. For a change. Please delete your post and post what you feel will most likely will happen.
AFTER the draft have at it. Lets have fun tonight. WHO do you think will be drafted ....Not WHO YOU WANT , NOT WHO YOU THINK WE NEED. This is it......gun pointed at your head.....What is Miami doing. Give it your best shot. Relax. Have some fun for a change.
I still remember when we picked dan marino...this dum@$$ dan simmerman i believe was his name sayin......quote i dont know why they picked him i dont know who they have at miami thats going to work with him to make him a good qb.
Just like the rest of these fool comentators who get paid lots of money and dont know squat.
Miami makes their pick at 6, then again at 18. As the draft moves on, Grier sees a guy high on their list, still there, say around pick 25 or so. Miami trades their 2nd rounder and a later pick to move back into the first round to get their guy.
Miami has enough ammunition to do something like this.
Hey tcpf i thought ettiene and najee harris werent going in the first round? You said they were going in the second. Told you.....again missed out on two of the best rbs in this draft...now we going to draft the next tweener bust that we can find. Youll see.
Pittsburgh running game sucked so they were going RB, Jacksonville saw an opportunity. We took the best WR we could at 6 and we needed a DE at 18. Good job!!!!!
We have a number of RBs on the roster. Maybe we get Williams in the second round. Maybe we have more pressing issues. We have the 4th pick in the second round....still to LB, a Safety and the best DT still on the board along with Williams.
If jeremiah-owusu-koramoah is still there at 36 we grab him . The draft is weird like that. He's a 1st round talent all day long but drops due to other teams needs.
Then other players go quicker then rated due again to a certain few teams needs.
Showed ability to carry a significant load.
Runs with good tempo.
Smooth downhill flow with efficient change of direction.
Instinctive through the traffic.
Accurate reads up to linebackers in outside zone.
Vision to recognize and get skinny through small creases.
Agile feet to spin or jump-cut away from tacklers.
Rarely bounces runs wide unnecessarily.
Angle tackles slide off loose, slippery hips.
Effective on screens and can work out of backfield against LBs.
Is a little lighter than expected for the heavy tote total.
Below-average leg drive to break NFL tackles.
Not a fall-forward finisher.
Running style is more rigid than creative.
Needs willingness to improvise once he's on second level.
Average burst to outrun faster linebackers to the corner.
Fumbles come from carrying ball away from frame in space.
Needs to improve blitz recognition and pass pro technique.
If jeremiah-owusu-koramoah LB Is there at 36 Thats an incredible value. He will STOP Buffalo Bills drives. Hes our answer to Zach Thomas.
Then a player like Chuba Hubbard at later on. Maybe round 3?,

It shows that Miami knew what they wanted . They did their homework and got the two guys they wanted. Never said that means they need to get fitted for yellow jackets. They didn't F around....I thought for sure they would be shielding calls for Justin Fields. At least see what they want to offer. Wait out the 5 minutes.......Nope. BOOM. Waddle. Didn't even think about Smith. I like that they know what they want. It shows confidence and a plan. A direction.
