Some folks share your opinion that Miami should look at Ryan Mallet. I don't know much about the guy other than he has a big arm, some good stats and is in a pro style offense. All good things. On the negative I've read some analysts say he has head issues.
Maybe he is an option. My concern is that several teams drafting ahead of Miami have QB issues. They are already without a 2nd round pick so trading up to get him gives them even less to work with in the draft. Remember they have o-line issues, running back issues, a need at tight end, and possibly someone to challenge for jobs at safety and inside linebacker.
If he is there when they pick and is the best player available I'm all for it.
that's the problem where we stand right now. None of these elite QB prospects are getting out of the top 8 because Carolina, san fran., Cincy, Buff., Ariz. , Wash. and Minnesota all need QB's.
so that's why it sucks to be us. It's better to be really good or really lousy in the NFL.
Being avarage doesnt get you very far in the draft, especially when you need a quarterback.
