:hypnotize:

The one thing I know about this draft is that at pick #11, we have options due to the quality of quarterbacks in this draft. There are too many very good defensive players that will drop to us that will be immediate starters and difference-makers. If we trade up for a QB, it's a smart move but is a lot to give up (Todd McShay thinks we will trade up for a QB). If we stay where we are at we are going to be happy there, too (Mel Kiper, Jr think we will sit pat and draft a defensive player). The only thing that would upset me is to trade down and get a "good" player and not a "great" player.

As Jimmy Johnson once said, "The biggest enemy of GREAT is GOOD."

Make the Dolphins GREAT again.

What if all the glowing things Dolphins coach Adam Gase said about Baker Mayfield at the owners’ meetings was misdirection, and if the meetings in Mobile, Indianapolis and Davie were all a ruse?

What if the Dolphins — and Gase in particular — actually prefer UCLA’s Josh Rosen, and are blowing more smoke than an overheated Impala?

That’s the belief of one informed source, who told us that Gase is “obsessed” with Rosen.

The Dolphins have given all the signs that Mayfield is their top choice, but what if that is to throw everyone else off their scent? When Rosen — a three-year starter at UCLA who completed 60.9 percent of his passes for 9,340 yards, 59 touchdowns and 26 touchdowns — spoke with reporters at the Combine in February, he said he had not even met Gase at that point. And as of last week, the Dolphins did not have a South Florida visit with Rosen planned, although they had scheduled a sitdown on the West Coast.

Rosen, as we’ve already covered, has a personality that might worry some teams, but Gase loves Jay Cutler, and so maybe he feels the same way about Rosen.

Rosen’s college coach, Jim Mora, told Sports Illustrated recently that Rosen “is the No. 1 quarterback in the draft” and a “franchise-changer,” but added that whoever drafts him will need to challenge him. It’s hard to keep his attention.

Um, Adam Gase & Jay Cutler are 12-19 when paired up, sorry to break the bad news, but that is not good

The "QB Whisperer" will need his team to win more than 6 games in a season to win my confidence...

I think it's possible he likes both Mayfield and Rosen. Maybe one more than the other, but he'd take either. I also think it doesn't matter. They'll all be gone before we our pick at #11, and even if one does drop into range where we can move up, we'll easily be trumped by another team in what we can offer.

Or maybe not.

According to Mel Kiper, Miami is in discussion with the Colts to move up to #6 because they feel sure Mayfield will drop. Say there is 90% percent chance it will happen. I seriously doubt this, but that's the rumor.

Really interesting article. Basically says that this year's QB class is weak, and notably gives guys the following comparisons based on projected success at the next level (listed in order from high to low success rate). As you'll see below, the comparisons are downright frightening, but I would urge you to read the article anyways because it's a really interesting look at things using some advanced metrics.



Baker Mayfield: Russell Wilson

Sam Darnold: Colt McCoy

Mason Rudolph: Jared Goff

Logan Woodside: Nick Foles

Riley Ferguson: Zach Mettenberger

Nick Stevens: Mike Glennon

JT Barrett: Jake Locker

Luke Falk: Brett Hundley

Lamar Jackson: Brandon Weeden

Mike White: Jacoby Brissett

Josh Rosen: Brandon Weeden

Chase Litton: Tim Tebow

Josh Allen: Deshone Kizer

It's hard to take this article seriously when they through out this comparison.
