Dez Bryant to Dolphins? Bwaaahhaaahhaaa

I know everyone covets a top-flight wide receiver in the coming draft to get the Dolphins offense airborne. The odds of that receiver being named Dez Bryant just became astronomical.

Forget for a moment that Bryant is supremely gifted and could be gone before Miami picks at No. 12.

Forget for a moment that Bryant missed most of the 2009 season after being suspended by the NCAA and has played only 28 college games. The Dolphins have issues with investing high picks on players with questionable backgrounds and limited experience.

But if those don't hurt Bryant's chances of landing in Miami, consider he has hired agent Eugene Parker, and that seriously affects those chances. Parker, in case you don't remember, was the agent for Michael Crabtree.

And Crabtree conducted a 2009 rookie holdout until October 7 because Parker and the San Francisco 49'ers were not agreed on the rookie's worth. The 49'ers wanted to pay Crabtree the slot price of what the No. 10 should get. Parker argued Crabtree had Top 3 talent and should be paid like it.

What do you think Miami will do if it faces a similar negotiating stance?

Here's what I think: Bill Parcells and Co. will likely avoid the issue altogether.

Free agency: Brandon Marshall.

Draft: Rolando McClain w/ our No.1. He's Lawrence Taylor in a Bama uniform. Then CJ Spiller if we can trade up for him. After that, the best available safety, another LB, a NT and a TE.

1ST ILB R.MCCLAIN
2ND TE A.HERNANDEZ OR TARDE (READ BELOW)
3RD FS M.ROLLE
4TH OLB E.NORWOOD

LB OVERHAUL. KEEP WAKE & JT. DUMP ALL OTHER SALARIES (TARDE OR RELEASE - UNCAPPED YEAR)

PAY WILFORK IN FA
TRADE GINN FOR CRIBBS (GOOD ON ST & WILD CAT)

#1 RECEIVER? MARSHALL. + SCHEFFLER?
MARSHALL & SCHEFFLER WANT OUT & MCDANIEL WANTS THEM GONE. PACKAGE DEAL?

DENVER NEEDS A TE & ILB, & DAWKINS MIGHT RETIRE SOON (FASANO, CROWDER & G.WILSON) + THIS YEARS 2ND & NEXT YEARS 1ST & 5TH?

MAYBE A.GOODMAN & R.HILL WILL SUPPORT THE DEAL?
WILSON IS A SS & WAS OUT OF PLACE AT FS.

POSSIBLE?

Aurrelios Benn looks really good anyways... I think he is more likely our 2nd rd pick if he drops. We go DT 1st rd is my guess... looks like a good draft for them

FA: Anquan Bolden (The fact that AZ has WR Breaston emerging along with WR Early Doucet will bring his price down to something reasonable)

Draft:

Not gonna get the super stud saftey E. B. or Bama LB Rolando McClain unless they trade up. Because it takes too much in draft picks to move up this regime won't do that.

I would say without hesitation that C.J. Spiller should be the selection @ #12.

Go watch his clips. He is a RB Chris Johnson type player. He has the shiftiness, hands and speed to be a multidimensional player. I believe in one fell swoop he makes Ginn obsolete on kickoff returns as well as making Bess a super back up punt return option.

Spiller would gobble up valuable yards and set us up with killer field position and probably return a few punts and kickoffs for tds as well. Then he could be used on screens, draws, traps, wildcat, regular pitches n toss sweeps, misdirection pitches, option play and whatever cleverness the OC could come up with.

CJ is a hold your breath when he has the ball type player.

Did anyone see Ray Rice get things started in Baltimore's playoff game 1st play from scrimmage?

Jones-Drew, Darren Sproles, Percy Harvin, Ray Rice... the smaller shiftier RB's are having great success in the NFL right now. The rules favor the offense nowadays... (no contact down field, cant touch WR/RBs after 5 yards, this guy would be a P.I. waiting to happen) Sparano talks about needing more chunk plays...well that is Spiller's middle name. With RB Ronnie Brown (coming back from his lis franc sprain), RB Ricky Williams (in his last year 2010), RB Lex Hilliard (a banger but not a go the distance threat), RB Pat Cobbs (A good all around back but not a super scary guy to defend also coming off injury)

I think that Spiller's talent is absolutley in the #12 range. I believe that he has good enough hands to be spilt out for bubble screens etc. So in one pick you have a player that can make the offense stay on the field longer by getting 1st downs which helps the DEF rest. He can improve our ST on kickoffs AND punts. He can make ANY gadget play deadly. He can play RB / WR much like Percy Harvin but without the migraines.

With Anquan Bolden and RB C. J. Spiller in the fold we would have two dynomite playmakers that we simply dont have now.

That gives the trifecta 8 other shots (minus what they give up for Bolden) to find LB's, NT and S help.

Bwahahahaaaa????

We should go get Spiller #12. Trade Ronnie Brown for a 2rd draft pick or A. Boldin from Arizona

>Wouldn't be the right move at #12 anyway, regardless of price.

NEVER EVER use the phrase, "regardless of price" when discussing professional sports personnel. Thank (your diety of choice) you are not GM.

BRANDON MARSHALL?

Michael Crabtree has yet to prove he is worth the money. I think Miami should focus on getting a veteran reciever before drafting another one. Get someone in there that can mentor the guys we have, and teach them a thing or two. Spend our draft pick in the first round on some defense that we desperately need.

Miami will not sign a reciever in the first round. Expect the first two pikcs to be on the defensive side of the ball LB and maybe NT if available. I can even see the fins going into next season with the same recieving core. Yes our recievers were not explosive but the offense still put up enough points to win games only to have the defense give the lead right back.

JJ4545 I think Brandon Marshall may have the most talent but, he is also the biggest head case besides T.O.

Parcells had run ins with T.O. and given his track record being similar to Brandon Marshall's I doubt they could stomach the risk vs the reward. Remember, McDaniels and Marshall patched things up and were hugging at times during the Denver season when they were winning. Then he magically gets back in the doghouse after his record breaking total catch day? It screams, problem child.

The locker room cancer players are what the Fins are trying to avoid.

Paying the diva's only partially fixes things many times. Word out of Washington is that 100 million dollar man DT Albert Haynesworth is acting up. Fighting with coaches etc. For some, getting the big $$ means they are entitled to more say than a player should have.

'I think the Dolphins take the best player available within our set of needs, which happen to be on DEFENSE!"

Absolutely.

I'll go a step further, and say it MUST Ray Lewis type LB.
We have NO real leader on defense other than J Fergie. besides being a monster on D, look at the intangibles Ray Lewis brings to his team. Zach had the intangibles, and for a while the skill level. We need an intimidator, motivator.
I have no clue as to which one of thew draft available LB';s fits that profile the best, but I'd entertain thoughts from this gathering.

Sorry for the typos.
I meant "it MUST BE a Ray Lewis type."

Ha...forgot to change my posting User name!
Tom Olivadotti would NOT be capable of such cogent thought.
It is I/me, IMAWriter
