I will be expanding more on the points I am making below about the Dolphins 2012 draft in upcoming articles but I want to throw the ideas out there first so people can argue them, attempt to ridicule them etc.
1. Don’t draft another offensive lineman with their first pick or in the 1st round again. PLEASE DON’T!
2. Deal both Reggie Bush and Brandon Marshall to gain an extra high pick in the 1st round
3. Stay out of the Robert Griffin III sweepstakes as it will cost them too much to win it
4. Use one of the two picks in the 1st round to draft Trent Richardson – RB – Alabama
5. Use the other pick in the 1st round to draft Justin Blackmon – WR – Oklahoma St.
6. If you can not get both players in 1st round, I recommend getting Blackmon and opting for another big time back with 2nd first round pick as there are more impact running backs available in draft than there are impact wide receivers.
7. Use mid round pick to draft Case Keenum a highly productive 4 year starter at quarterback who can be a high performer in a West Coast offensive system.
8. Use remaining picks to fill lesser glowing holes on the roster.
9. Pick up 3rd down back type in the late rounds to replace Reggie Bush at a much cheaper price. There will be many available in the late rounds.
10. Make no moves in the draft that will reduce the number of picks the Dolphins are able to make. They are not one player away and the winning formula will be making more picks not less picks.
