Ha, I literally just saw this on Twitter. Passing on Hamilton or McDaniel is pretty surprising.
Mike McDaniel. He was the running game coordinator for SF and was recently promoted to OC for them.Is there a different McDaniels that I do not know about? Not sure how they could have hired McDaniels since lateral moves are not really an allowed thing in the NFL.
The trade value with the Eagles is a home run. Sewell I would be fine with.I was messing around with the PFF mock draft simulator and took a shot at the Dolphins. Here's what I was able to do. They got a ransom from the Eagles to move from 3 to 6 and still got Sewell at 6, along with picking up another future 1st and 2nd in other trades. What do you think Dolphins fans?

I hate it. I would much, much rather take one in the draft. Either trade up into the end of round 1 or take in that falls to you in round 2.Also, if anyone has an explanation that would make me feel better, or excited about the Aaron Jones rumors...that would be appreciated.
The only scenarios that really seem logical to me are that he has no market and he’s signed for cheap, or the draft falls in a manner where it never makes sense to take a top back and signing Jones winds up a justifiable use of cap space.
I don’t want to rehash everything all over again, but I said it before and I’ll say it again. You probably just saw Tua’s floor in 2020. And Miami was 6-3 and nearly made the playoffs.I think I’m moving toward irrationally supporting Tua, for no other reason than the national media skewing so far in the other direction.
Listening to ESPN draft coverage and hearing the same people that told me Tua was a generational prospect last year, now argue that Sam Darnold has more value, makes my head explode. It’s made me actually want to root for Tua and have him prove people wrong.
Funny as it might sound, I would still take Le’Veon Bell on a cheaper one year deal to be a rotational/third down RB. I know he didn’t play a ton with KC, but I feel like he’s still a plus receiving back and I can’t imagine his market will be very high this year. James White fits in that same mold.I heard Pat Kirwan on NFL radio arguing that the number one player the Dolphins should Target is James White.
I love these kind of 'buy-low' moves.Dolphins are trading for Titans 2020 first round pick OT Isaiah Wilson in a late round pick, source confirms. Miami buying very low on Wilson, who had a lot of off-the-field issues as a rookie. I heard Miami liked Wilson last year & he went to Brian Flores’ HS in Brooklyn.
Just saw this. I mean, clearly the guy had issues last year but as tremendous upside. Miami adds another big body to the wall. Also a swap of 7th means this is basically zero-risk from Miami.
Got a DUI last Fall. Trespass warning at another local college. Posted as recently as a few weeks ago on social media that he was “done with football”. Seems to be a bit of a troubled kid and the Titans’ GM openly questioned his commitment so there had to have been lots of other stuff behind the scenes.Can someone tell me what his issues are/were? Dolphins are on the hook to pay Wilson $4M+ the next three years total, which is peanuts basically. How awful must he be to have the titans drop him after one year?
True lottery ticket but reportedly he and Solomon Kindley are close and Flores might be able to get through to him since they came from the same shitty background. Also he said he was done playing football for the Titans. So could be something with the coaches or team that rubbed him the wrong way.Got a DUI last Fall. Trespass warning at another local college.

This likely won’t work out but worth a shot given the zero cost.
Honestly relieved that Aaron Jones resigned with Green Bay. I would much rather pay and edge rusher and WR and draft a RB than pay a RB and try and piece together a pass rush.No Aaron Jones...phew. Von Miller? Clearly there is a plan here that will likely make sense by tomorrow. I think they'll sign one big name FA edge guy, one RB, one C/G and one big WR. I expect Grant and others gone and them to restructure Byron Jones, so I think they'll have $40-45M available. After the trade they picked up another $2M, leaving them with $35M. I expect $20-$25M of that will go to edge and WR (Samuel?)
If last year was real, Fuller might have been the WR prize of the offseason. If it wasn't, he's still a very solid complement to Parker. Really good signing for Miami.The WR domino finally dropped.
Fuller is a tremendous add. On a cheap (or cheaper than expected) 1 year deal, you know he will be highly motivated to stay on the field and be productive. Simply put, one of the most explosive deep threats in the game. His skill set compliments what Miami has in place. His ability should force defenses to respect his speed and open up the short to intermediate routes that Tua can feast on.
I would be shocked at this point if they stay at 3 and make a selection. Flores has already not so subtly hinted that they’re exploring trading down inside the top 10. Carolina makes a ton of sense as a trade partner.It’s odd, and refreshing, that this team is doing all the things that I find logical.
So with that in mind, I’m calling it right now...
If the team keeps their picks, which granted is a big “if”, they are taking Chase. Then the value/need intersection at #18 will be either an OT or front 7 guy on Defense. And then it’s see if one of the top backs is there at the top of the second.
Seems to be the consensus. I would say a minimum is going to be a swap a 3 and 8, a 2021 2nd, and a 2022 1st. Anything beyond that is gravy.If they trade down, which I agree is setting up to be the best course of action, they’ll be able to hold an auction and certainly get a first for next year.
I was curious to see what others were saying, as I didn’t want to overestimate Miami’s hand due to a bias, so I found an article from The Charlotte Observer, their expectation of a trade for the Panthers to move to 3 would be the swap of 1sts this year, a 2nd or 3rd this year, a first and another mid/late round pick next year.
