Tannenbaum draft strategy

Post by CarsonChris on Sat Apr 30, 2016 11:43 am

I just read that Tannenbaum believes third day draft picks aren't much different than unrestricted FA. The reason he trades is because he believes all the impact players come from rounds 1-3 where he tries to target 4 players.

Listening to draft analysts they were saying the NFL metric for success is drafting 3 starters each year. If you do that you don't have to bring in FA players. Your team will stay functional.

Yeah, who needs depth, right? The Dolphins have proven that you don't need quality backups. No

Smart GMs know that you build the backbone of your team - quality depth and future starters - through the later rounds of the draft. Those picks are like gold, if you know how to use them. Only in Dolphinland are picks worthless.

It's been confirmed that Tannenbum actually wanted to trade up for Jack. Think about that one for a minute or three.

I also heard he actually gave away more to trade up for that CB than the Jags did to move up for Jack.

And you know it's bad when Rick Fucking Spielman cons you. You guys remember Rick Spielman, right? The guy who gave up a 2nd round pick for a third string QB and also a 3rd for a backup RB who played with the Fins one season and averaged 1.8 yards per carry? No, that last part was not a typo.

LMAO!!! And the (s)hits just keep on coming...

Ross and Tannenbum were Jets moles planning to destroy the Fins from within, can there be any doubt about this now?

So let me get this straight...Tannenbaum doesn't like having picks in the 4th and 5th, but he is OK stockpiling picks in the 6th and 7th? Huh?

Jags gave away a 5th to move up two spots in the second for Jack.

Tannenbum gave up a 4th to move up four spots in the second for Howard.

Fins then claim they wanted Jack, but gosh darn it, the price was just too high.

Seriously, could this BE any more of a clusterfuck???

Miami doesn't have a front office that will understand how to work a draft. With Tannenbaum running the draft Miami's chances of the playoff is getting slimmer and slimmer

and then what happened next is even worse...



Trades among teams within the same division are rare in the NFL because, well, teams don't like to potentially help improve their most direct competition.

But today the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins got on the phone and exchanged picks -- the Dolphins ceding to New England their fifth rounder (147th overall) in exchange for two sixths- (196 and 204 overall) and a seventh-rounder (250th overall) this year.

And that's fine. The Dolphins wanted to add bodies, I guess. The Patriots apparently had a player in mind they wanted to select in the fifth round.

Except the Patriots turned around and dealt their newly acquired pick to Seattle. The Patriots gave up that fifth-rounder they just got from Miami in exchange for a seventh-rounder this year ...

...And a fourth-rounder next year.

So instead of staying put and possibly adding a fourth-rounder next year, the Dolphins see their division rivals use their slot to add a fourth rounder next year.

The Dolphins, I suppose, will say two sixths and a seventh this year are more valuable than a seventh this year and a fourth-rounder next year.

No. No, it is not.

A fourth-rounder is better than a sixth or even two sixths.

Remember that the Dolphins traded away their third and fourth rounders next year already, plus a sixth this year, to move into the third round to pick receiver Leonte Carroo. Remember that Miami was crowing about getting a fourth-rounder next year for the loss of starting running back Lamar Miller.

And yet they have missed the opportunity to add such a pick because they traded with Bill Belichick instead.

Note to the Dolphins: If your phone is ringing and the caller ID says Belichick, don't pick up. If someone in your draft room says, "Hey, let's call Belichick and see if we can swap picks with him," escort that person out.

Yeah, I think that is very good advice. 

It's just so frustrating seeing the Phins stupidly squander draft picks without rhyme or reason, year after year.

Trading picks is okay, especially if you see a highly rated player sliding....you KNOW you are going to get good value.

But, giving up picks next year for a WR??? That dude better be DARN GOOD. And even then....

Tannenbaum can churn the bottom round picks all he wants, but throwing away 3rd and 4th rounders tends to confirm my thoughts that Tannenbaum is clueless about how to work the draft.
