If memory serves, I believe 'the shadow knows' had posted on this just recently.

Next up? A punter, kicker and a long snapper...right!!! More than likely will be D-line guys and linebackers. We'll see.

The new Dolphins draft administration is now three picks into it, but we should take note that they are nothing like the last. The last set of honchos would have never trounced on Laremy Tunsil. No way. They would have played it safe. This group is bolder, different, not using the same playbook.

Woods, FZB, Cornerback, Xavien Howard, the scouts say, is this, that and the other. Translation, he is being described similarly to possessing the same traits as recently acquired corner, Byron Maxwell. Makes sense.

Kaz, Developing a plan that addresses your goals is never foolish, just the opposite. The sit I compiled for the Dolphins was a sound one, placing the names of the various need positions across the first three rounds Obviously, the team was not about to draft a QB or WR, as an example. What we should all agree with is the fallout from the wrench that was tossed along with the bong this changed the whole trajectory. However, the Dolphins still chose (so far) an offensive lineman, a corner and a running back. The names that they chose were all bumping shoulders, sort of speak. So I don't consider it a waste of time.

I would not take Whitehair even were he to apply Grecian Formula.

The smart thing to do, however, is to take the best corner and draft the RB in the third round with their #73. C.J. Prosise, from Notre Dame should be there for them.

Even though the team needs a cornerback in the worst of ways, I would almost throw caution to the wind just to land Henry. Every Dolfan who experienced the "perfectos" would reminisce in those old Czonka days.

The next best-rated corner is Kendall Fuller, from Virginia Tech., and who is recovering from injury.

Tennessee, K.C. and Dallas are all in the hunt for Alexander. I don't think he'll last come #42.

Just for the fun of it: 32. Cleveland, needs: FS, QB, C. prediction: Connor Cook, QB 33. Tennessee, needs: DT, CB, WR. prediction: *A'Shawn Robinson, DT 34. Dallas: DE, QB, CB Mackensie Alexander, CB 35. San Diego: C, OLB, CB Myles Jack, OLB 36. Baltimore: DE, CB, WR Kevin Dodd, DE 37. Kansas City: CB, DT, OG, RB Jarran Reed, DT 38. Jacksonville: MLB, DE, C, CB Reggie Ragland, MLB 39. Tampa Bay: DE, WR, OLB Noah Spence, DE 40. New York Giants: OT, OLB, WR Jason Spriggs, OT 41. Chicago: DE, CB, TE Emmanuel Ogbah, DE 42. Miami: CB, RB, MLB, OLB Derrick Henry, RB (unless Alexander is still available)

Looking ahead at tonight, the Dolphins are not in the greatest spot to land the next tier cornerbacks. They pick #11 and there are eight teams ahead of them who need corners. They may have to trade up, or we're possibly looking at deep doo-doo.

Woods, with the exception of Albert, every member of that line is interchangeable. Even Pouncey saw action as a starting guard two years ago. I'm sure that the rook will see some action at both starting tackle positions.

FZ, it's not so much a conversion to "big uglies," as you like to call them. It's about value. When you're sitting at #13 you don't expect to see the guy with the highest rating in the draft (7.6), still on the board. One could understand it somewhat had he been recovering from injury, like the second guy behind him, Myles Jack, (7.3 rating). Only DeForest Buckner (7.2) and Exekiel Elliott (7.0) carry 7's before the rest of the draft goes 6's and lower. You simply cannot pass on a guy rated that high, moreover, when you had every intention of landing a starting OL guy sometime in the draft.

That dude is going to prove to be one of the best picks Miami has ever taken. Owning up to your f***ups shows that he is willing to take responsibility for his actions and displays character. The fact that so many teams passed on him while recognizing that he was the #1 talent of the draft will cause him to play that much harder and endear him to the one organization who believed in him. Phenomenal pick!

They haven't drafted a stud LT since Long, and Long was only good for a few years. They now have at least four excellent linemen in Albert, Pouncey, James and #1 overall talent, Tunsil. Add Douglas into that mix and they've got a very respectable OL.

First round: Teams have 10 minutes each to make their selection. That means that Miami will not pick until around 8 pm EST... That is, unless Tannenbaum charges ahead, which I kinda expect. He impresses more as being a hare (trade up), than a tortoise (trade down).

BB, Political parties are dynamic things. Always drifting to adopt and become one thing or another. The Republican and Democratic parties, as currently populated, are in flux. The Democratic side perhaps, less so due to seven plus years inacting a consistent liberal menu of stuff. The Republicans, on the other hand, find themselves right smack in the middle of a party war between a Bush-era establishment and a new grassroots "America First" populist faction. Between those who wish a continuation of corporate interests first, as opposed to what is right for the American people. In this regard, establisent Republicans are no different than establishment Democrats -- they both side with a "globalist" agenda. Here's a really good article that shines a light on Cruz/Fiorina. Viewed from this framework of Americanism vs. Globalist perhaps is more revealing that whether or not the make off "good Republicans."
