  • If you could redo the draft

    Knowing what you now know what would you have done differently? You can also void the Stills trade and get our 3rd round pick back if you want to. This is what I would have done.

    Round 1 DB Marcus Peters - He will be in the running for the defensive rookie of the year.

    Round 2 OT Jake Fisher - We knew we needed better depth along the o-line.

    Round 3 OG John Miller - He has been a starter for the Bills at a position of need for us.

    Round 4 LB Ramik Wilson - He has played some for the Chiefs. Probably an upgrade over Kelvin Sheppard.

    Round 5 WR Stefon Diggs - I had a good feeling about him before the draft and he has emerged as one of the best WR's in this class.

    Round 5 RB Jay Ajayi - I agree with us taking him. I think he will be very good.

    Round 5 DT David Parry - A starter for the Colts and we needed to add another DT anyway.

    Round 5 FS Kyshoen Jarrett - He has played well for the Redskins. I changed this pick since we need more help in the secondary.

      If you go back and look at the draft you will see that there were not any LB's worth taking after we selected at #52 in the second round. With Albert missing time early in the season and now James out for the next month, backup OT is very much a huge need since Jason Fox stinks. Also if we had Fisher that might have made Albert expendable next year.

        kinda liked our draft even if WR is a crowd. Thought we got good value at the time of the picks. We need to grow our own talent and they are not fully grown. Give them time to develop.
        The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

          I've wanted an ILB in the first for the past several years. Ryan Shazier should be a fkn Dolphin. /sighs

          I was fine with taking a WR this past draft as at least it's a skill player. Playing the hindsight game is never productive.

              True Dat! I always hate going back & seeing what could've been if we just would've done this but instead elected to do that, it's downright depressing!!

              Our only real hope is to find that special GM who actually has foresight to stop us from always looking back at things in hindsight!

                I think it would be unfair for me to go in and pick all the players that are doing well this season. So, I will stick to most of the players I originally wanted as much as possible.

                Round 1 - Cam Irving C/T/G (O-line has been a mess for a LONG time so it's never too early to draft one)

                Round 2 - Randy Gregory DE

                Round 3 - Jordan Hicks ILB

                Round 4 - Josh Shaw CB/FS

                Round 5 - La"el Collins T/G
                Round 5 - Karlos Williams RB
                Round 5 - Shaquille Riddick DE
                Round 5 - Kenny Bell WR

                Round 6 - No Pick

                Round 7 - No Pick


                Undrafted

                Taiwan Jones LB
                Malcom Brown RB
                Kurtis Drummond S
                Desmond Cooper S
                Josue Matius G
                Cody Prewitt S
                Kenny Cook WR
                Josh Harper WR
                Bernard Blake CB
                Corey Crawford DE
                Joey Mbu DT
                Kevin White CB
                Cameron Lynch LB

                      It's hard to evaluate our draft. The 2 biggest splash players in our draft were Parker and Ajayi. Neither has contributed at all. We are told some of it is due to injury, but it still doesn't add up. My biggest red flag came when they said Parker was completely healthy for 7 weeks. He had all the skills and playmaking ability projected in the draft. But he missed training camp and can't learn even a few routes in our offense in "only 7 weeks of practice". REALLY? Makes me think he is dumb! Then I look and see, we can't find a way to use Ajayi in our offense. He gained over 1,500 rushing and 500 yards receiving last year, but just not able to contribute in our system? So I wonder, another dummy? Then I have to look at NFL veteran players we brought in like Stills and Cameron. No NO NO! Just not able to contribute in our offense yet.

                      On the other side of the coin, I see the Patriots go pick up 6 guys from the bus station, insert them into their starting lineup week 1 and go undefeated. Starts to paint a picture. You can't win in the NFL with a high school playbook. But you also can't get so cute that it takes a good football mind 15 years to digest and understand the intricacies of "your" playbook. The playbook is a plan you can teach to 23 year old athletes not your personal biography of how brilliant you are. True brilliance makes the complicated look simple. So it seems to me that Lazor is at the heart of this problem.

                      Then if I take this same problem and look at the rest of our offense.... Tannehill? Miller? Landry? Sims? Our O-Line? I think we need to finish the purge and throw out Lazor's playbook. Look how well it's working for Philly. If Lazor can't understand how to adjust, let him go with his playbook. Then Philbin, Coyle and Lazor can all sit around the country club and console each other on how the Dolphins just didn't understand their brilliance!

                      It's a poor craftsman that blames his tools!

                        But a terrible craftsman will NOT become better with quality materials, they just make more expensive garbage...
                        We put Mr Magoo driving our Winston cup car, and he could barely cross the finish line! Some of the wrecks may actually cross ahead of us.
                        We had the talent on this year's roster to be a contender, but that was destroyed by allowing Philbin and his coordinators to retain THEIR positions at the controls...

                          My point exactly! You can't evaluate this year's draft based on what they did under our coaching staff. Parker may be the best player in this years draft. If he ever actually plays we may see that!

                        I was just basing my redo mock draft on what would give us the most benefit right now with what our current needs are and with some of the unforeseen developments that have occurred.

                          I know what ya mean. We just have so many unanswered questions. Head Coach? O.C., D.C, our young players. It's frustrating because you expect to get some answers as the season unfolds all we got is more questions.

                        I agree with you with one exception, I am NOT buying into this notion that Coyle's defense was so complex that it was hard for the players to understand it. I think it was so friggin' stupid that nobody could figure out why an NFL coach would be trying to implement it. I am not sure about Parker. You already know I didn't like the pick. Now, in week 9, he still can't get on to the field? The offensive playbook has probably four plays in it all within a 15 yard box so I refuse to believe anybody is that stupid where they can't learn a paper thin playbook like Lazor's. These coaches have to go and unfortunately for Campbell, because I really like him, I think he has to go too because the idea of him keeping any of these morons who are currently on staff scares the daylights out of me.
