EDIT: Holy crap, I just realized your draft is almost identical to mine... Only picks we have different is Kyle Long and I havent watched much of Lemon or Allen.

Rambo and Reid probably have the best chance at being a true centerfielder.
DC9, sorry for the draft talk bro...

I really really doubt Bennett escapes NY, and if he does I doubt he comes here (though he's been on 2 NFCE teams so far, maybe he tries for all 4 in his career).
Him and Eli developed a good chemistry, and that's as good as gold. Eli is getting up there in years, the window will only be open another 3 or so years before they have to start the QB search again. When you have such a short time, it's best to hold onto those pieces that have good chemistry. Having to spend a high pick on a TE in the draft or bringing in a FA who might not have as good of chemistry can be tough. If it's not broken don't fix it.
As far as "not broke", I think it's hard to trust that Freddy D comes back from where he left off and he is also a free agent. How do we know he stays? I think he will but it's not a wasted draft pick if you get someone who can contribute immediately and also upgrade the position.
Freddy D did say last year before he was tagged that he was not necessarily loyal to any one team and he would go where he'd be paid. After the injury, who knows now. He's overrated by most teams but we tend to love our own.
look I love me some Sleepy Davis, but I am not a fan of bringing him back. There are just too many "what ifs".
- What if his achilles does not heal well and nags him causing production to dip?
- What if he wont budge on his payday and wants a multi yr deal?
- What if he picked up an old habbit while sitting on his butt rehabbing and gets suspended for a yr?
IMO, I would rather bring in a guy like Jared Cook but ultimately, I trust the FO to make the best decision (whens the last time we can say that)
Edit: catching up to your posts, i see you like Reid, too.

So long as someone doesn't come in here and post nothing but draft stuff, as I think we've done a good job of.
Dukes' is running another crucial draft thread, but even in there dudes talk about free agency. It's all part of the excitement of building a Champion, lol.

Dolphins | In talks with Jake Long
Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland said the team in contract talks with impending free-agent OT Jake Long but it is a very complicated negotiation. He did not rule out using the franchise tag on Long if an agreement is not reached.
...Not that we had a chance, but FA news nonetheless.
I'd prefer Jared Cook, but Anthony Fasano might be worth a look too. I think he's underrated to an extent.
I want the peace of God in my life.
To say these words is nothing.
But to mean these words is everything.
Nobody can mean these words and not be healed.

matter of fact, the only guys im looking at from Miami are Reggie Bush, Randy Starks, and Chris Clemons, but really most of their FA's will be resigned because they have the cap space.
