I say that all of the picks are good picks. But the top 3 to me are: (1) Waddle – (Equal) – (1) Phillips (2) Doaks
Waddle will help Fuller take the top off the defense.
Phillips will help reduce opposing QBs time to throw the ball.
Doaks will help in crucial short yardage. Doaks reminds me of Jay Ajayi; because he runs like he is angry. And if I am correct; then Miami has found a diamond in the rough!
Miami’s offense is much better then they know. Why do I say this? Because with no deep threat WR and predictable short yardage routes all season; Miami was still able to win ten games.
If they could have given Kenny Stills a flyer last season Miami would have made the playoffs and likely gone much farther.
Oh well; they have come to their senses now and signed two deep threat WRs. So Tua should have a field day every Sunday. And Tua will have no excuses now. It is put up or shut.
