Miami first round #13 and 32 + their 4th and ours. Plus Tate. I think they jump all over that.
I would not trade Tate and a third for their second round # 43. I would trade Tate straight up for their #54. You don't focus on his value to us but his value to them. I believe in 2013 he matches Bush's 2012 estimated 1,000 yds.
Miami would want Ben to agree to long term deal.
Why would Miami want to make a long term deal with a RB that's been hurt as much as Tate? Why would they want a guy who might just be a system RB with good ypc stats? Why would they pay a premium for that when they don't even have an o-line good enoguh to block for him? They aren't in position to do it, and I think you are greatly overvaluing Tate. He's worth a 4th alone at this point.
I think you need to package Tate and a pick for a single pick. That's it. You just don't see many trades involving multiple picks.
