Not a lot of draft news or rumors circulating around…except more of the same. Pretty much everyone thinks that WR is the Dolphins’ main need, and virtually all “experts” have us taking LSU’s Chase at #4. As you all know, I hope we choose defense instead, but I understand the offense get use some help too.
As I’ve said, I don’t remember Tua throwing the ball to wide open WRs last year, and they all dropped the ball. No, our WRs were fine. Our kid QB no time to throw all season, and that was the problem. Fitz didn’t have any time either, but veterans know how to compensate. Tua will learn. A rookie WR cannot help him learn pocket presence. I won’t be angry if we select Chase, but I wouldn’t mind a big shocking, surprise pick or another trade to really liven things up.
The Deshaun Watson trade talks have all but stopped, and it’s a very troubling situation. The facts are not in yet, but I’m tending to believe the women who have all said that Watson went too far during their massages. That’s just my opinion based on what they’ve said so far. The troubling part for me is that Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s case went far further than Watson’s. Where Watson is simply being accused in civil actions, Kraft was truly arrested and booked for a crime. Although it would be gross to see, there is a video of the incident and everything. The evidence for Kraft is there, yet the authorities decided to drop all charges. In Watson’s case, they are not dropping anything. Whether it’s race or money/power or influence is unclear. It just seems odd that everyone is piling on Watson now, before any proof is given, while Kraft and Big Ben get to move on.
