We should offer a 1st and 3rd or 1st and 2 3rd's for a back like Onterrio Smith or Travis Henry/McGahee (the Bills will lose one of them next summer anyway). A 1st round pick is pretty much useless for the Phins regardless of how high it is. They'll just take a John Avery/Yatil Green/Cecil Collins type player. God forbid a good player should actually slip to us in a need position (like Kelley Washington in the 2nd last year) cause then we really get frazzled and end up drafting a back up special teams player instead.
Who says Miami hasn't tried to get a better back? In fact, I'm sure they have. The problem is no one wants to trade them for the most part. And yeah, the Fins have no late round good picks...Zach Thomas and Jason Taylor and Chris Chambers and Patrick Surtain were all first round picks.....oh wait, they weren't!
