It'll depend on who the new coach is.

If they move to a 3-4 you almost have to pick defensive line

If they stay with the hybrid 4-3 you can draft almost anything

^There's more depth there in the second or third rounds.

 The Dolphins are in full rebuilding mode. They arenít going to try and fix our weak spots per se. This is unlike anything weíve experienced before.  From all accounts Iím seeing they will draft best player available ... period. Look for them to dump or trade solid players if they think it will help us long term and they are no longer going after old free agents as they arenít looking for a quick fix.

If you saw Rossís press conference they basically said they need a coach who is ok with losing in the beginning. He went on to say Gase wants to win now ... which makes me wonder if it was a mutual parting of the ways.

You say that, and I agree, but mock drafts seem to think we need another cb.  Mock able, I know

Hard to show good performance when practically everyone in the defensive backfield is a backup rookie or playing out of position -- both due to injury. Could we use some more depth? Definitely, but unless  there's a very, very special player when we pick, I don't see DB as a priority at all.

DB is also a very young group, CB in particular. Walt Aikens is the oldest at 27. Xavien Howard is 25, so is Bobby McCain. Then there is McTyer at 23 and two rookies in Armstrong and Davis. At safety there's Jones with his 30 years, but he's an elite player and not going to be replaced anytime soon. The rest are pretty young. Minkah Fitzpatrick, for example, was very highly rated by the team and you'd hope he develops after what was essentially his rookie year.

Not sure what you mean. Miami has never been in a rebuilding mode that I can remember. They always felt they could just add to why they have.

I'm just really happy Miami won those meaningless games and wound up with the 13th slot in the draft, no coach and a front office in disarray.  This is great (said no one ever).

lol ... was just listening to Armando on the radio and it sounded like he thinks we are planning on restocking picks, clean up the salary cap and tank next season for a certain QB. Iím not sure anyone trusts Miami to do all of that

Honestly, I don't think we are bad enough to finish 3-13. We are clearly not contenders, but our Lines and Linebackers are jokes and we still went 7-9. What players can we start at Guards and Center to get worse than 7-9? What tight ends can do worse? Now we will have Albert Wilson back for the whole year and our WR corps look pretty solid. At worst, I don't see us with fewer than 5 wins unless we cut Tanny and start Brock full time.

Guys, as much as you all want us to tank, we aren't going to do that.  No professional is going to tank on purpose.

We arenít going to add to what we have. Thatís what weíve always done so they are doing something different. they are going to dump players for draft picks and salary cap. Sounds like some players that fans are counting on will be gone. The Raiders are rebuilding so you can use that as a point of reference.

I've always looked at a whole new coaching staff and/or front office as rebuilding. And we've done that every 4-3 years since Shula left. You may have a few hold over players but you're bringing in new coaches, coordinators, players, new playbooks, and everything is constantly changing every few years.

But weíve never gutted our roster and then built it back up and thatís what a rebuild is. When the owner is warning of a possible 3-13 season you know winning next season isnít a priority

My one and only hope this offseason is that Miami "finally" takes the O-line seriously and invests some serious draft capital and/or FA dollars in improving the talent in the trench.

And we've done that every 4-3 years since Shula left...

Innocuous, but telling...  Wink
