Im telling you right now if we are able to take austin in the first and ship of bess for a later pick persuably a 5th is the best we could get, then i would be ecstatic. This offense would without a doubt be the most explosive offense weve ever seen in Miami , bar none. If we draft Austin id almost lock us into the playoffs on Offensive fire power alone.

I guess you never heard of Dan Marino.

A side note to my detractors - My opinion is mine I stand by it no matter how many people disagree. I see Tavon Austin as a second round talent and stand by that. Would I draft him in round two ? Possibly, but not if I have someone rated higher available.

I dont think Austin is worth where he will be picked but I wont hate the pick if we take it. We will have so much talent around Tannehill and if he doesnt produce we will know whether or not we have our franchise QB. This is of course assuming we do fix some of the Oline issues as well. Were in a very good situation atm and I would love to see Delvin get some play if Tannehill doesnt light it up.

Your opinion is bad and you should feel bad.....

Do we glorify the Marino era more then we should.....and if we do is it because the Dolphins haven't been relevant since he left and as sports fans we will grasp to any piece of glory our team has in the past no matter ho insignificant that glory was (he threw for a bunch of yards, but was he a winner?)....

This guy has as many Super Bowl rings as I do...

I'm commenting on pope137 post that the current offense with Tannehill will be more explosive than that of Marinos era and hence my response. The subject is explosive offense, not glory.

If you think Austin is really a tier above all positions of need, then you take him. If he's more or less ranked at the same spot and you don't think he's a more special prospect than players at positions that we've spent less on, then you pass.

That simple. Is he really that good of a prospect? Probably not. He may be a great player one day, but I wouldn't bet my 12th overall pick on it, especially after spending so much money on Wallace, Hartline, and Gibson.

I get taking Tavon Austin. It's almost worth it just to keep him off of other rosters. My problem with this draft is taking Reid in the 2nd and doing nothing about pass rush on the weak side opposite wake.

A lot of it has to do with Vernon. Coaching staff has faith in Vernon and so do a lot of fans. The same way You have faith in Martin.

I have faith in Martin, Vernon, and Miller.

YES!!!!!! Player development. players always make a big jump from year one to year two.

We hope. Then again, depth isn't there. After Vernon and Wake, who do we have? That is my only question but taking guys early isn't needed either because you have to allow players to develop

True not sure derrick shelby is enough. I think we have one more quality free agent signing left to help clear up the direction of the draft. Ireland loves D-line I think somewhere in first 3 rounds he snatches one.
