Ross picked Grier who has been a part of the Phins decline into a morass of mediocrity for the past 20 years, so ...
Of course if he gets the qb question right I may have to change my attitude and I hope he gets it right.
I agree here. The Dolphins did A LOT of analysis on the QBs 2019-20, and through it all they had their eyes on Tua (1) and Herbert (2). Through all the film, interview, etc they liked Tua better. Grier has shown that he can move up and down in the draft, and that he knows how to get into the mind of his head coach and supply the players in the draft (and free agency). What has he learned from the all the mistakes in the past that he sat through with other GMs, and can he tell the difference between a regular player who will play out his rookie contract and bounce around the league or can he choose playmakers? 2020 - for Flores2019 - for Flores2018 - for Gase

9) There’s a new breed of NFL general manager, and he’s not afraid to make big trades. This is the sixth draft run by Grier. He has already been involved in deals for eight first-round draft picks. Grier also dealt away a first-round safety, Minkah Fitzpatrick, making it, really, nine first-round-involved trades since 2016. He made two of them Friday. I love GMs who believe the draft is a vehicle to get better in all ways and don’t treat first-round picks like untouchables. When I first started covering football in the eighties, GMs were almost irrationally tied to their first-round picks. No more. The free-wheeling Jimmy Johnson started to change that in Dallas, figuring he could always find a draft choice if he really needed one. Now, from Seattle’s John Schneider in the Pacific Northwest, to Grier down in south Florida, from John Lynch and Les Snead out West to Howie Roseman back East, it’s a trader’s game.https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2 ... eter-king/
