Won't know I guess until they play but I just think we missed some chances and it started with Sewell. We grab Sewell then we get Moore or another WR in the second and don't have to blow our 2022 3d rounder obtained in the SF trade to move up for a guy who looks stiff to me for a tackle.I like Hunter Long better than most. Solid workmanlike player. Phins are a Kylin Hill away from a very good draft. Not perfect but hit a lot of needs.
Yeah it's a fair debate. Sewell and Eskridge or Waddle and Eichenberg. I like all 4 players so it's a tossup for me.Won't know I guess until they play but I just think we missed some chances and it started with Sewell.

So far no center or game changing RBs which were team needs. We did take a safety I think we get later perhaps and a TE who is more of a luxury pick to me. Was Safety that immediate or is he that good? If Phillips stays healthy and is a stud, and this Safety is that good...You can't lose if the other team doesn't score.
He was the focal point of BC’s offense which is unusual in this era. I would’ve preferred Trey Sermon or Brevin (more dynamic) but Long is a quality player.I like Hunter Long better than most.

I like some of those guys too... But have to tell you this was a frustrating draft to witness because I felt we were always on the defensive and taking the next best choice because we were played.Some players I like still on the board
Amon Ra St Brown
7th round: Buddy Johnson, Jake Funk, Ian Book
Different players.Is Carter from UNC such a drop off from Williams? He gouged our ass but not familiar with his attributes.
You’re one of my favorite posters to read because we always see things so differently. I mean that sincerely.I don't get the Doaks pick when better backs like Jaret Patterson, Caleb Huntley, Trey Ragas, Spencer Brown, JaQuan Hardy, etc went undrafted.
I graded 25 backs for this class and had Doaks 3rd last. Dane Brugler graded him 29/35.
I don't disagree with your evaluation I just see the projection differently. I agree that he's well-built with good speed especially on flat routes out of the backfield. He gets to the sideline quickly and does an efficient job of catching and rotating to work upfield. When he has a crease he can explode downhill and cover ground in a hurry. I definitely see the traits to be a good pass protector but Rhamondre Stevenson is better at it imo.You’re one of my favorite posters to read because we always see things so differently.

I liked Doaks- for Miami- better than potentially any RB taken on day three. That kid is tough, has excellent contact balance, and is smart.
He’s also probably the best pass blocking RB in the draft. He’s excellent out of the backfield as a receiver. Great on angle routes (think Edwards-Helaire on that route). He has juice for that size.
To me, he’s a Javonte-lite and will make this team. I liked Kylin Hill, but he doesn’t have the speed of Doaks.
Every pick made was sound process to me. I would’ve taken different players in a few spots, but I don’t think you can argue with the fits.
In my opinion, you really shouldn’t take a RB before day three, even the very best do not move the needle much.
Matt Skura was a player I really liked in 2018. In 2020 he wasn’t as good and was hurt in 2019. Some risk there, but I can see why they like the Tom guy from the Saints and Deiter another year to look at C.
The roster build continues upward for Miami.
You make some assumptions. Not everybody is happy we took Waddle at 6. If you think of it as draft night and we are at 12 with Waddle on the board we did indeed give up our 12th, another first round draft pick, and I think a 4th to move up and take him. I hope he is worth 2 first rounders because that is what we gave up or let's just call it 'spent' on him. Should have stayed at 12 and maybe he is still available, or Smith, or Parsons, or Slater and you still have two number ones the next two drafts.Everyone saying we gave up a 1st and a 3rd for Waddle are dead wrong. Miami wanted out of 3 but not out of the top ten so they moved to 6 and got a 2023 first rounder and 2022 third rounder. That is why the two trades happened at the same time. Ignore moving to 12 first. It would be different if we moved up to 6 on draft day after seeing who was still on the board. If Miami moved from 3 to 6 and the pick would have been Waddle, no one would have said they made a bad deal. The only grip would be if you feel like they should have stayed at 3 and picked Pitts or Chase.
