    Why would Miami give up two picks for Sproles when they could just draft a good RB with that earlier one if they wanted to? Don't make much sense to me but I'd sure take their picks.

    the reason i think theyll give up two picks is theese reasons, number 1 ricky williams is older than LT not much left Ronnie brown is a great running back but has injury problems in the legs, last time i checked a running back need their legs,
    number 2 theyre behind us in the second round so i think Aj will work out a deal for 2 picks and a 2nd and forth seems fair to me for sproles cuz youre gettin a return man, a screen back, a scat back and a receiver all in one

    Still don't make sense to me. At 43 they could get a pretty good RB who can carry the load a lot better than Sproles can and Ricky may be older than LT but he has a lot less carries and clearly can still play. Agree Brown I'd singed a lot but they could choose between dwyer, Tate, Gerhart.
    Id sure love the picks but it just don't seem real smart to me to give up two picks.

    true i can see where your coming from, but i dont see a back in this draft like sproles, i mean u have dexster mccluster but hes no sproles, i just think the dolphins would be lucky to have sproles for their wildcat, plus think about this sproles plus tedd ginn jr that might just be a dangerous threat

    Best could do everything Sproles does and then some. Being 5'10'' 200lbs he can break tackles, something little Sprolzy struggles with.

    I think people forget about Best bc that vicious injury, if it wasn't for that the dude would be RIGHT there with Spiller in the 1st round.

    I think the Dolphins are on the verge of cutting Ginn. He lost hos starting job to the rookie they drafted in the 4th round.

    i dont think theyll cut him this year, but he definately could be gone, but i think the dolphins are a major contender for sproles, and i pray to god that they give us the deal i mentioned, so we can stack our team

    Agree with this 100%.

    In fact I think Best is a better "runningback" in the true sense. He won't lose yards trying to make big plays, where as Spiller is more like the rookie version of Reggie Bush.

    I dont think there is a team who would offer two picks for Sproles, .....No.

    I think AJ would settle for a 2nd and dont think a team would offer two picks and certainly NOT a team wanting him to be a featured RB because that isnt what he is and there are RB's in the 2nd round who are.

    I certainly can be wrong that AJ would take a 2nd....maybe he wants two picks for him but at 7.3 million, id think he would settle for less because i doubt a team will offer two picks.

    Im sure there is but if AJ is going to be firm on getting two picks, nobody imo will offer that for a parttime RB.

    Hec id be happy to get a 2nd for him. Id also like to keep him too but figured they didnt want to pay him 7.3 million.

    yea i want to keep him, but like u said at 7.3 mill for someone who cant be a feature back is stupid,, id settle for a 2nd, but id love two pics for him, if we could get a 2nd and a 4th for sproles and one of our comp picks in the 5th id be find with that,i mean the whitehurst trade got us a 3rd next year and swapped seconds and hes un proven so im sure sproles can land us something more, theres alot id like to do with this team, call me crazy but id even like to trade malcom floyd for a high 1st or 2nd and maybe a 4th, just think about this you might not like it but this sounds good,
    lets say we traded malcom floyd for a 2nd round and a 4th round to the bucs theyre low on receivers and floyd would bring veteran and talent, along with trading sproles to miami for just a 2nd the draft could look like this

    1. Terrence Cody. NT Alabama- we all know we need d line help and jamal left a BIG hole to fill y not get someone even bigger to fill that hole

    2. Ben Tate RB Auburn-2nd most complete back with hands can you say dangerous

    2-"traded malcom floyd to the bucs for their 2nd and 4th"tyson alau cali de, we could do a major overhall on the dline

    2-"san diego has traded Darren sproles to the doplhins for the 43rd pick" SEAN LEE ILB PENN STATE - we need help here we know it

    3. Dorin Dickerson TE Pittsburgh - matchup nightmare. We know Norv loves these kind of players.

    4.Kevin thomas CB Southern Cal-alil depth and give cason alil push

    4(from bucs)Kam Chancellor FS Virgina tech-could push weddle out this kid is a beast

    5a. Charles Scott Rb Lsu- AJ loves his lsu guys

    5b. Hall Davis DE LA-LAfayette- anyone can be a upgrade from cesaire" yes i still want this kid just to hae depths"

    7.Jevan Sneed QB Mississippi- just a 3rd string qb to take the place of charlie whitehurst could possiblely be trade bate in the future lol

    now think about our line if we get Terrence Cody, Tyson Alau,Louis Castillo on the line, the line backers, wed release dobbins, put sean lee and starting ILB, beside merriman and phillips,then we have our corners and safeties i like Cason and Jammer combo on each side that wont change in this years draft, safeties i think if we bring in Kam chancellor he'll take weddle spot, so now we have Kam Chancellor beside kevin Ellison, thats a dangerous defence, and i know you're gonna say whose gonna take floyds place i say put dorin dickerson on that side for right now, or just put nannee starting at 2nd,that would only leave our line which i addressed in udfa see previous mock, if Aj can pull that off our team will be considerably better, maybe even superbowl caliber who knows

    Nobody is going to give us two picks for Floyd either. You sound like Ant thinking our players are worth gold :lol:

    Floyd is 28 years old and his best season by far was last season with only 45 catches.

    Well i think your nuts. What makes you think Thomas could step in and be anywhere near what VJ is?
    We cant have half the team being rookies and expect to compete for a SB so sorry , i wouldnt mind getting some extra picks but not at the expense of trading all our best players for them.

    Demetriyus Thomas may turn out to be a good NFL WR, but he has a long way to go. Very raw - even more so than VJ when he first came into the league in many respects. He has size & fights for the ball, but he's also pretty clueless when it comes to running routes or even understanding route trees. He seldom got the ball thrown to him at GT. Long strider, will struggle to gain separation at the next level.

    No way do I want to go through all of the growing pains that we went through with VJ again with anyone right now, much less a guy like Thomas. Just because he's big doesn't make him good.

    I'm still holding out a little hope for Blount in the 5th. Having that type of athleticism at 240lbs is amazing, and if someone can whip his *** into his 2008 shape he could be a steal of Michael Turner proportions.

    Me thinks someone takes him in the late 3rd or early 4th. Maybe someone like the Eagles who like to give troubled, or previously troubled guys a shot.

    Updated One Day Before the Draft:

    First order of thinking, is the Texans really control what we do as far as CB or RB goes. Alot of people think they are going Matthews, but I believe the Texans are aware as we are that it's a deep draft at the rb position, and they still have Steve Slaton(problems and all). It is not a deep corner draft, so the Texans take McCourty.

    1. Ryan Matthews RB Fresno State
    -This is too high for Cody, and although I like Best's upside better, if Matthews is still there, you probably have to take him. He's played in a pro offense, and has the size and skill set needed. Plus you erase a need to take another back later in the draft. (Like if I take Best, I take a "thumper" later on.) This is the first of my fifty kabillion mocks I've taken Matthews...but I think he's going to be there. I still like Best better as a player, but the concussions are scary, and the need to draft another back if you select him have changed my pick here.

    2. Terrance Cody NT Alabama
    - weight and character issues scare teams away from him. Of the "recently converted" 3-4 teams who draft between 28 and 40, only KC is there...and I think they go OT in round one, and Safety(Taylor Mays?) in round 2. Cody is still there, and we get him.

    3. Clay Harbor H-back Mo. State
    Guy is going to replace Manu and then some... Hester and Tolbert might end up fighting for the role of "short yardage" specialist, because this guy is going to be the primary lead run blocker, and is very athletic, and can catch out of the backfield. Perfect Fit in Norv's Offense.

    4. Phillip Dillard ILB Nebraska
    -All four of our ILB's contracts are up after this year. Dillard played well on a great Nebraska Defense, and will get a season to learn the nuances of the 3-4.

    5a. Verner CB UCLA
    Didn't know nothing about this guy until the other day, when someone(boltjolt?) Had them in their mock. He's not very fast, but a willing tackler. Played a good Pac10 schedule. If AJ selected Brandon Hughes with a 5th last year, I like this selection here. He doesn't have the greatest measurables, but makes plays.

    5b. Danny Batten OLB South Dakota State
    -Here's your pass rusher guys. In the toughest conference in IAA he was basically tied for defensive MVP. At the Texas vs the Nation game, he played some MLB although he had spent his entire career at Defensive End. He's a worker and a warrior, and he will put Tucker or Applewhite out of a job if we draft him.

    7. Sean Canfield QB Oregon State
    6'4 and Can't Run worth a lick. Remind you of anyone? Played in a pro style offense in college. Good accuracy, especially on the deep ball. He's a perfect fit for our offense. I can't believe he's actually the 16th ranked quarterback in the draft. He should be drafted higher, and this is one of those kids that when I read reports on, I just don't understand what people are thinking, I'd take him over Zac Robinson any day, particularly with Norv's offense. Tim Hiller and Jarret Brown are better prospects than this guy? I don't believe it.

    I still don't like RB in the 1st, but this is a very realistic AJ mock.
