Dolphins now have wallace, hartline and gibson.. leaving bess as the #4 wr making 2mil.. id take davone off their hands for a late round pick. he's a very very good slot reciever who has good hands. always have liked his game and he could be had for cheap. Won't be the next #1 but would be a solid 2/3 and i think could possibly push lafell.. murphy doesnt compare to davone bess. a 6th or 7th?

Eh, nothing against Bess but we have enough 3rd-6th receivers (wouldn't beat out Smitty, a young guy we might take in the draft to be a possibly future #1, or Lafell). Any resources spent on a WR need to be spent on one toward the front of the WR line, not the middle or back, in my opinion.

he said a 7th round not a 1st round. You make it sound like you can find a "front line wr" with a 7th round. Based off fact and history most picks after the 5th round barley makes the team. I will give a 6th or 7th for bess or any proven # 2, or 3 wr any day.

I didn't say anything about 1st round pick. I'd rather our late picks spent on developmental OL or a Kicker or Punter that could start than another Louis Murphy deal. I'm not saying I'd hate it, I don't feel terribly strongly either way, but I'm just saying we have a logjam at middling WRs. We need talent at the top of our WR depth chart, not so much in the middle.

We won't even sign middling WR' s in FA let alone go through the hassle of trading for one. I'm afraid this team is going to limp into next year with a half assed roster and a GM looking to hire his own coach. Not saying that's what it is, just saying that's what I feeling.

what we need and what we can get are 2 different discussions.. I think you may be undervaluing what Bess would bring to the table.

Maybe. I was optimistic about Murphy last year, I'm trying to steer my optimism away from "maybe on a different team" WRs now though. He could very well be successful here, /shrug

The Dolphins haven't even made their decision on Bess yet. They may keep him.

He's in the same boat as LaFell and the rest, really. He is what he is, a likely WR3 ceiling who plays to a WR2 level at times.

I'd be content going into this season with Smitty and LaFell on the outside with Bess in the slot.. I'd rather go with a 2 TE set, but at least we still have 2 solid weapons over the middle of the field..

obviously finding a true #1 would be ideal, but easier said than done..

I wouldn't mind picking him up but I don't think that it will happen. My gut tells me that we're going after a WR with our 1st pick.

We need a #1 WR. If we're not getting someone that can fill that role in a couple years then do not want a WR.
