Lets say for the sake of argument that these are the best two guys on the board at 12. Who should Miami take and why?

If Parcells, Sparano and Ireland do what they did with Vontae last year, and find out the truth of the Dez Bryant situation, and that all these stories are BS, this is not even up for a discussion, regardless of who is on the board.

Dez is the 4th best player in this draft, and the best one on the offensive side of the football.

Earl Thomas is a good player, but does he really fit the Parcells mode?? He is neither tall nor thick, and he does not play like a physical player. I don't see him being the pick.

well today & out of these options i have to go with bryant. we need that big WR so bad that HENNE can taste it.lol i have been back & forth on who i want as our first pick but i am about 90% sure that i think BRYANT is the best pick that would darn near justify our offense it wil open up things so much. it will take the heat off GINN & with HARTLINE & BESS in the slots & hopefully TURNER can step it up that would give us 5 very good WR. can u say 5 wide & let HENNE show off his arm. man that sounds goooooooddddddd :yay:

i have also red a few reads on CULVER & i am starting to believe he could step it up & hold his ground. i will still go with a safety in the 2nd i think there will still be 1 floating around for us to snatch 1 up to make CULVER step it up.

1 more thing i cant get out of my head CJ SPILLER every since iv'e watch his highlite reals i cant get over how shifty :stiffarm: he is. the more i watch them the more i fall in love with the guy :awe:

:jests: :jests: :jests: :jests:

who would you guys rather have? and i ask that as a serious question, not a sarcastic reply. i voted bryant because i think his talent is hard to find. i would be happy with either.

For some reason when people set up poll voting as a thread, I cannot see that, so I couldnt cast an actual vote, but I would have voted for Dez Bryant as with the 12th overall pick you take the best player available and between these two guys it is Dez Bryant.

Where ever this guy goes, my opinion is that he will become a force at wideout in the NFL.

If he does somehow even lasts to the 12th pick and Miami selected him, I think coach Karl Dorrell along with the existing group of receivers will embrace him and he will fit in great and we have guys that will lead by character example.

Bryant is getting an over blown bad rap and it is tiring to keep reading about the negativity.

After the decision makers do there due diligence and he is still a viable option then Dez. Won't be upset if we get Thomas.

That definitely needs a "IMO"

i think if we want a WR with the first pick, we should get brandon marshall. already proven WR and a change of scenery will do him and us good. if that is the route the team wants to get a wr.
my thinking on it anyway.

Sparano has already stated that Miami is not interested in either Terrell Owens or Brandon Marshall, so let it go.

I hate Terrell Owens.....and he is getting old.....but can you imagine that target and talent with Henne's arm? The problem is, Owens is demanding of the ball and our staff is very committed to running....he might not get the ball enough to please his ego...he will also be expensive.

I think Brandon Marshall would be outstanding for our team. I can't imagine Denver would want to let him go though.

Neither player is coming to Miami though.....so pray for a WR in the 1st or 2nd round.

I voted Thomas; I think he's an immediate impact player; I think Bryant (who hasn't shown much maturity) will be an even bigger problem once he has millions in the bank, despite his talent.

As to Thomas' size (5'10" 202)...
Here are some FS to think about...
Ed Reed 5'11" 200
Antoine Bethea 5'11" 203
Jairus Byrd 5'10" 200
Nick Collins 5'11" 207


Psssst: Thomas hasn't had a strength and conditioning preseason in the pros yet...he'll put on a pound or two.

wouldn't mind either, but for some reason i have a feeling that Bryant is the real deal and that he is gonna exploded in the NFL. But yes if we can't get Berry than Thomas is the only other S i really want.
