Aliases, sorry, but I've been posting on here for a very long time...Under the same name...But you can believe what you want, who cares...

I guess there's no hope...LOL!! I guess Brady sucks because Gronk got hurt right? Or is that different? In other words it applies for Tannehill but not Brady...Ok, you make a lot of sense dude...Really...

Sam, that line about Tannehill sending WRs to the IR is the stupidest, most ridiculous, retarded comment EVER on this blog. Makes ZERO sense. I'm sure you can do better than that...If not, there's no hope.

Texas, what are the odds of that happening?

Mark, the Dolphins seem to like Seantrel Henderson a lot...I can see them using a late pick on the guy...And a chance to compete with Fox I guess...But that's not very reassuring...

I know, I know...I like Lewan too.. But who knows? It's still a gamble...My point is the highest ceiling is not always what we think...How many of us thought we had our LT position solved for at least 5-6 years when we drafted Long? You never know...I get what you're saying but it's not always easy...And Martin is no slouch, a lot of people (Armando included apparently) think he'll be gone by the time we're on the clock...We'll see I guess...

Mark, excellent point at 03:38...That I agree with you 100%...

Mark, Zack Martin could turn out to be the next Vernon Carey...But he also could turn out to be the next Mike Lupati...I mean, that's what drafting is...It's a gamble and you just hope it pays off...Same could be said about all the other players as well...

Oscar, problem is, ILB, RB and S, who do see worthy of drafting at 19? Mosley? Highly unlikely he'll still be there...Pryor? Should we really spend our first round pick on a safety? And which RB would you take at 19?

The Dolphins shouldn't feel "forced" to go o-line in the first round for one simple reason...This draft is considered a very deep draft for o-linemen. This is the kind of draft you can grab a LT in the 5th round and he would become a solid NFL starter. I would still go o-line in the first (Just my opinion of course) but I can't say I'd be shocked if they don't. Having said that, they better make sure they get at least 2 good ones... I'm not entirely sold on Shelley Smith and Jason Fox...I think Martin at RG would solve a big problem...And give me Jawuan James to play RT...

We must give Tannehill more time in the pocket...And he needs to show better pocket awareness...He was part of the problem, don't be fooled...But with a better running game and decent protection, his sack number should drop by at least half... Posted by: #1 Dolphin Fan in Montreal | April 15, 2014 at 02:35 PM Finally, a close to honest post! However, even with time to throw Tannehill could not hit the beep ball. Pocket presence can not be coached. Run game? Im blasted for suggesting the CONSENSUS #1 RB in the draft as our 1st pick. LMAO! Posted by: SAM I AM | April 15, 2014 at 02:42 PM His deep ball needs to improve, no doubt, but you don't give up on a kid that threw 24TDs and for almost 4000 yards. THAT WOULD BE INSANE! Fix the o-line and give him some weapons and we'll see what happens. I'm willing to bet Tannehill will be even better in 2014. Maybe that's just the fan in me, who knows.

Mark, Brendan Shanahan will be running the show now for the Leafs. Good move?

With an improved o-line, I like the thought of having Moreno and Miller...I can live with that...As long as I don't see Daniel Thomas anymore, I'll be happy. LOL!

I'd be shocked if the Dolphins use their first round pick on a RB...I don't see it...

Inside Linebackers: Read & React: C.J.Mosley. By far the best in this class according to most scouts. Sees and senses what is coming and has the athleticism and agility to do something about it. Run Defense: Shayne Skov. Power in his hands to fight through blocks and securely wrestle ballcarriers to the ground. Pass Defense: Christian Jones. Can play every linebacker position with speed and lateral explosiveness to trail tight ends and running backs. Tackling: Chris Borland. Considered a tackling machine. Some compare him to Zach Thomas. Doesn't take no for an answer. Textbook tackler and try-hard pursuit player. Pass Rush/Blitz: Yawin Smallwood. Capable of playing outside in a blitzing role with natural feel for pass rushing. Intangibles: James Morris. A "permanent" team captain since 2012, Morris was academic All-Big Ten and a National Honor Society member plus a four year starter.

Texas, here's what I read about Skov: Strengths: Ideal size and temperament for the inside linebacker position. Broad shoulders, trim middle and thick lower body. Terrific instincts and physicality. Tone-setter who made plays at key moments for the Cardinals. Improved explosiveness was evident in 2013. Slashed through the offensive line to make emphatic tackles in the backfield. Aggressive and seeks contact to take on and shed blockers in the hole. Flashes explosive closing ability. Team captain. Weaknesses: Likely limited to 3-4 alignment inside linebacker role due to marginal speed (We do use a mix of 4-3 and 3-4). Lacks fluidity for extensive coverage responsibilities (With a good pass rush, we don't need extensive coverage. Working to break a bad habit of lunging to get to the ball carrier (Nothing good coaching can't fix). Overaggressive and takes himself out of too many plays. Suffered torn ACL in 2011, although he regained explosion in 2013.

O-line is still by far our biggest need...Followed by LBs...Man if Lewan falls to 19 that would be great, but I'd be shocked...Give me Martin for RG and James for RT...We must give Tannehill more time in the pocket...And he needs to show better pocket awareness...He was part of the problem, don't be fooled...But with a better running game and decent protection, his sack number should drop by at least half...

Texas, agreed 100%...And in all honesty, it would make sense for the Dolphins to get an offensive player in the first round...Yes the defense underachieved somewhat but the offense was for the most part our Achilles heel...I would like an o-lineman in the first, we need someone who can come in and start right away, either at RG or RT...Defensively, we need to stop the run. That is a must. If you can't stop the run in the NFL, you're in serious trouble. That's why I wouldn't mind using a mid round pick on Skov...

Mark, Cooks nickname is "Sonic boom"...They say if you fail to get a hand on him at the line you'll be staring at the back of his jersey in a blink...
1 reply
Texas, you would hope it would be turned down. That would of been so stupid...They probably figured we once gave up a 2nd rounder for AJ Feeley, maybe they could try to screw us over again...Nice try I guess...

Texas, 2 words for you: Donte Moncrief. Get me an o-lineman in the first...

Funny how Hickey doesn't confirm or deny the Dion Jordan rumors. "Hickey was asked indirectly about those rumors, and didn’t either confirm them or shoot them down Tuesday. "He’s a very talented player," Hickey said. "This is a big offseason for him. … We’re excited about Dion going forward and having a great offseason." Well, if you are going to trade him, you better get a first, a fourth, a 6th and possibly another player as well...I mean, this was the 3rd overall pick in the draft. Why on earth would you trade him for the 22nd overall pick? Makes no sense. You better get a lot in return Mr.Hickey...

Someone who doesn't know the difference between the Arctic and the Atlantic but acts like he's some kind of "genius of the board" or something...Hilarious.
