This move screams a center in the draft.
Based on their moves, or lack thereof, I think Miami has identified multiple WRs, Cs, Edges and RBs that they would happily take with their first four picks in the draft. Pick your combo but I think those positions have now become a priority because Miami is not paying for other teams' castoffs.
Yes, I agree. I've been beating this drum for awhile, I realize, but I think it also means they are going to try to trade down. If they are looking for players who can contribute right away, that usually only happens with top 50 picks, of which we now only have four. Plus, I think/hope they will consider Pitts, if he is available, which would mean six players if we also want WR, C, RB, Edge, and LB. So, even if we pick up an extra second round pick, one of those needs isn't going to get met until the third round. Maybe Javonte Williams makes it to the third round. Creed Humphrey (C) might last until 50, but if they really want him, they won't want to risk that.
This is the problem with drafting for need. You end up stretching to get guys at a certain position. I think we did that last year with Austin Jackson. In the long run, it is better to draft for value and take the BPA (within reason, relative to need), especially in the early rounds. We need impact players, regardless of where they play.
