I am not a fan of running quarterbacks. I would rather have someone consistent in the pocket; improve over the years; and not just get slower. On the other hand, pairing Robert Griffin III with someone like Reggie Bush is too intriguing to pass up.
The Dolphins will have to trade up to get Griffin, so what do the Dolphins have? The Dolphins can trade some draft picks, but I don’t think they need to lose too many picks. The Dolphins have a 3 of a kind at wide receiver and I think it is time to trade one of them. My pick would be Devon Bess. How much does Bess get you? Only the Rams could really use him, and they hold the 2nd overall pick in the draft. Getting the 2nd pick in the draft would be great and assure that the Dolphins get Griffin. The Dolphins 9th pick and Bess would not be enough, but adding a 3rd round pick might change their minds. That would leave the Dolphins with their second pick to pick up a safety or a right tackle and fill some more gaps in the later rounds.
The number of free agents has never been as high as the group leading into the 2012 season, so replacing Bess with a field stretching wide-out won’t be hard to find. Also, adding another pick won’t be too detrimental if the Rams don’t like the offer. This would also open up money for some proven free agents.
If the Dolphins get Griffin, then the prospect of getting a coach that has used players with his abilities becomes a must. This is where Les Miles from LSU would be a great addition to the team. Miles has taken a team with a great defense and led it with the same style quarterback, with half the talent of Griffin, to be the best team in the BCS. If Les Miles doesn’t come to Miami then getting the Offensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers, Rob Chudzinski, would be my second pick. Chudzinski has proven to be able to take this style to the next level, by making Cam Newton a superstar.
