Be careful gentlemen, as we are full blown into the lying season. I am very familiar with FSU since I am a big fan of the Noles. Yes, they played bump and run coverage, but they also played zone under Mark Stoopes.
Is Xavier a better press cornerback right now, yes, but with his athleticism and ability, there no way this kid can't be a better zone CB.
I will say this though, as I think trade down is a very valid option. If this happens, the CB to look out for is indeed D.J Hayden or Jamar Taylor in my opinion.
And as far a fewer mock draft showing Rhodes to Miami, all you need to do is look at NFL Network, as every guy on that board has Rhodes to Miami.
Miami could go in a variety of directions, CB, DE, WR. That said, especially this time of the year, you have to be careful of what is the truth and what is a so called smokescreen.
You also have to recognize that most of these experts rank the corners, and simply slot them in based on needs. They don't care whether Rhodes, or Trufant, or Banks, etc are the better fit for our system. They just have Rhodes as there #2 corner and he happens to be on the board when the Dolphins pick. Also, that pick is based on the popular belief that all three offensive tackles are already off the board.
