Bess is a chain-moving slot receiver with great hands. No gamebreaking speed but very effective between the 20s. Missed 3 games last year, but they were the only ones he's missed in his 5 year career.

He has 4th round value, but a 5th seems about right in a buyer's market (which it is considering he doesn't fit the type of offense the Dolphins are implementing).

seems like this would be part of a trade up. But why get involved with Bess after signing Nelson? Who is a similar player and younger.

Bess is a good player, one of the better slot players in the league.

I hope we get him

I really think it will be part of the trade down- if it was a 5th or later.

No, seriously. Ask Bill Belichick. May I have his hand-me-downs?

Instead of Bess, why don't we go after a guy like Golden Tate who is on his way out of Seattle. He can make plays after the catch and be a problem for defenses

I have a man crush on golden Tate.

When the browns traded up for hardesty, I thought for sure it was for Tate.

Yep. I wanted him in that draft too.

This just seems completely contradictory to what Banner said last night about not using picks to fill needs in the short term.

Bess is 28 with 1 year left on his deal.

I wouldn't even call it a need.

I just think that they value Bess as a WR. I would imagine it wouldn't take a whole lot to Re-up him if they wanted.

Well if its a 3 or a 4, we can meet in Berea. You bring the torches, and I'll bring the pitchforks.
