    Looking like the Dolphins have had “extensive meetings” with Baker Mayfield at the Senior Bowl. Mayfield reported to Robert Klemko of SI.com


    Loving this. He showed love. We gave him a nice sit down meeting. Well done Miami. Wouldn’t be disappointed with this pick in the first round one bit.

    Saints, Jets, Miami, and Bills all sat down with him this week.... I know Saints probably really want this guy... He looks like Drew Brees 2.0

    There's talk about Denver wanting KC, but I believe that just couldn't be, way too much money for a losing QB that doesn't make players around him good.

    My bet is they take Baker and save the money for their horrible OL, I know the Donks have a big interest from him, hell the way things are going Baker may end up going before the supposed top QB's.

    I think you meant CK (Case Keenum) but I gotcha... there will be a lot of FA QBs available which I think, in turn, will drop a few QBs in the draft who may have gone higher if there wasn’t a crap load of FA QBs available.

    Grier didn’t report it. Baker did. So unless Baker works in our FO already, hard to call it a smokescreen right now, especially when you see the other teams that also had meetings with him, those being QB needy teams. Not so far fetched.

    He doesn't have to report it SG, he's doing the right thing by having extensive interviews with mayfield, thats the smokescreen..mayfield and the media take care of the rest..

    If Miami makes a play on a 1st rd qb then they had BETTER have a plan at shoring up the OL and LB

    You can't read too much into these meetings. This happens every year. That's how the game is played.
    Hey, if he's not a screwball, just from a talent standpoint, I'd be totally down with drafting him. I think the odds that he falls to us are extremely low. Jackson may have a better chance at making it to our pick, but I think those chances are pretty slim as well, better than landing Mayfield, but still pretty slim. I also don't think he would be Gase's type of QB, but I could be wrong. There's a lot of QB needy teams and, imo, the pickens' are kind of slim...as usual. We would most likely have to trade up, so the question becomes, are you down with that idea? Personally, I never am.

    Personally, I think you’ll see a few QBs fall this year due to the influx of FA QBs that will be available this year.

    If Baker is there, I really think he will be the pick. But after this weekend he could very well be gone long before Miami picks.

    Trading up for a QB is fine, as long as you are in YEAR ONE of a team rebuild. Get your QB, then build around him. Since Miami is going into year three, I think Gase has to ride with Tanny. Use #11 to strengthen the team (whether by one good player or a trade down for more picks) and hope with a good enough run game and defense the Phins become a Super Bowl caliber team.

    If needed, the next rebuild will come in 2020, as Gase is shown the door and hopefully the next GM/Coach combo starts off with getting a QB to build around. I hope instead we are sitting on top of the AFCEast and looking to repeat as Super Bowl champs by then.

    Also, none of the big four at QB are going to last past the #6 pick.

    A few? Which few do you think will fall? That would pretty much mean all of the top QBs would fall. It's not like there are ten of them.
    One or maybe two may go the FA route, but there are still alot of QB needy teams and with the recent success of young players like Wentz and Goff, it can make teams lean towards going that route as success breeds imitation. You sometimes have the Case Keenum type of situation, but those are probably even fewer and further between. Who knows how long that ride will continue.

    I’ve seen 5 different QBs all go in the top 10 in mock drafts and in my eyes, in my line of thinking, I feel like all of these guys also have the potential of going top 10.(Not saying they will due to what I think will be QB slides)

    Baker Mayfield, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, Sam Darnold w/ the possibility of combine risers like Mason Rudolph, Logan Poolside etc.,

    Some QBs Expected To Be Available: (I won’t include Brees and Jimmy G because those guys will definitely resign)

    Kirk Cousins, Case Keenum, Sam Bradford, Alex Smith, Teddy Bridgewater, Tyrod Taylor, AJ McCarron (RFA/Trade), Jay Cutler, Josh McCown, Blake Bortles w/possibly more being made available like Eli.

    Those QBs can all compete in QB camps with late first round picks-3/4th round picks, no problem, seen it a billion times.

    QBs needy teams ahead of us :
    CLE
    NYG (I’ll give em the nod even with Eli)
    DEN
    NYJ

    I like the chances of a few QBs falling.

    Every time a free agent QB becomes available it means a hole has opened up for a rookie. It’s a zero sum game, there are precisely 32 starting NFL QBs on the planet. It’s extremely rare for the Keenum/Bridgewate/Bradford situation appear like it has for the vikes, but realistically 2 of those are serious injury risks and one is a career backup, so even if a team does sign one of them it doesn’t mean they are out of the market for a 1st round QB.

    The only guy on your list that would take someone out of the 1st round QB market is Kirk Cousins, and if he’s free them Washington are in the market. Tyrod Taylor or Alex Smithmight allow you enough breathing space to not do something stupid risky, but you’ll still take your guy if he’s there in the draft rather than roll with either of them as your long term plan.

    Miami will have to move up for Mayfield, I don't see him falling remotely close to us. which I wouldn't disagree to if they actually have a competition in camp or plan.

    I agree that those teams that sign those low end starters are still in the market for a QB. However, it gives the team more options to do other things on draft day and not as pressing as an immediate need at QB anymore. Is it still a need? Yea. How Bad? Got a low end starter, can still upgrade if the guy you want is there or maybe you have another pressing need at a different position that doesn’t have even a low end starter.

    Also, doesn’t matter how many teams are in the market for a QB... only 4 teams that are in need, are ahead of us and I’m reading that NYG new personnel loves Eli so that may only be 3 soon enough once we see their plans for Saquon come out.

    I would think Allen would be gone, but the Donks want to run a spread O with Baker, well that's whats been reported. I have a friend that's in the Donks organization that I have beers with now and then, mostly at get togethers, he usually gives me the inside scoop. I need to find out when the next party is and get some goddies.

    The Chiefs traded up to get Mahames, The Eagles traded up to get Wentz. Just because a team ahead of us doesn’t need a QB doesn’t mean that the pick won’t be used on a QB.

    Also I wouldn’t rule the Colts out from drafting a QB, depnding in Luck’s recovery

    Sure, teams can trade up and in all likelihood, I have seen maybe a max of two trade ups for a QB in the same draft inside the top ten a couple times... definitely rare when you see more than 1 trade up for a QB. Unless you can think of some, none are popping up in my head. And, on the other side of the coin, always the off chance Miami is one of those teams trading up... I have seen crazier **** happen.

    Sure. Why not.

    I HOPE may have been a better word. But if you think you are getting any viable leaks from the Dolphins FO about this time we can bet all day. If its a hunch, thats fun too

    Alex Smith to WAS
    Mahomes takes over in KC

    That’s one extra team who may have been on the market.. now off of it. No way WAS trades up now.

    And, it detracts from Miami's 11th pick being a potential target for teams to trade up to in order to get a QB. With the Skins picking only a few picks after Miami, naturally you would think Miami and Cincinnati would be fielding phone calls from teams (Bills, Saints) wanting to move up should Baker Mayfield make it to our pick.

    But now, that trigger point could be lower.

    Now if CLE can pull the trigger on Cousins, that would be great, but even if I was CLE and made the move for Cousins, I would still use the #4 on a QB as well.... They need a hit lol

    So CAL
    now that cousins and smith have shaken up the qb options, is it likely to have a qb available if cousins goes to the broncos that free's them up for what a rb? or talibs replacement?
