A possible question of the Dolphins draft is coming into focus from mid-February:
Do they fortify a weak front-defensive seven or go for a potentially great tight end in the University of Miami’s David Njoku?


Put me down to draft potential greatness – at any position.


Dolphins have weapons at wide receiver, but they don't have a player like Njoku on the roster. He will be listed with the tight ends, but this is a 6-foot-4 guy who can run in the 4.5 range and set up and run past defenders. He also has the size to go up and get the ball over smaller players


You don’t think Adam Gase wants a toy like that on his offense? In his Denver offense, tight end Julius Thomas caught 108 passes and 24 touchdowns in 2013 and 2014. ...

That's tough. I don't like drafting LBs or TEs in the 1st rd but I believe those positions as well as DT are our biggest needs.

Still think its too much of a luxury pick.
You don't need elite tight end play to win a Super Bowl snd offense isn't this team's problem. It should be pass rusher or linebacker first.

If your fa goes well enough AND you can trade down and Njoku is still there you take it. Yes its a luxury hut a luxury that can make you an elite offense for the rest of this decade and put you in a spot where a healthy defense should be good enough to take you to at least consistent playoff wins
