WEDGE SCOUTING REPORT: KEVIN WHITE


Wedge ID

KWhite1

     Kevin White is a gifted big physical receiver from West Virginia.  He is 6-3, 210 lbs.  the first thing most people think about White is that he will be a heck of a redzone threat – which is true as evidenced from the photo above.  But first let’s talk about his background.

     Although a talented high school prospect, White did not have the academic credentials to play Division 1 football out of high school.  So he went to Junior College, which probably explains why no one heard about him two years ago.  When he transferred to West Virginia he had a modest junior year catching 35 passes for a little over 500 yards.  But in his senior season he was as powerful Supernova – he exploded on the scene catching 109 passes, for 1447 yards and 10 TDs.  Holy Quasars!!!

     That might worry some scouts.  He is a bit of a one year wonder.  In an interview with Dane Brugler, White explained that in 2013 he didn’t know what to expect but with a lot of offseason training and working on his routes he was able to dramatically improve.

   NCAA Football: Oklahoma at West Virginia

     Whatever the reason for his dramatic improvement was, he became quite a threat when he he had the football in his hands in 2014.  10 TDs!  I would love to see Ryan Tannehill throwing to a big WR like that who can run after the catch.  Considering how many shorter routes the Lazor offense has, this is exactly the kind of receiver the Dolphins can use.

KWhite2

     What White does really well is attack the ball at the point of attack.  I expect this guy to jump well over 40″ at the combine.  He can go up there and fight for the ball.  He consistently catches the ball away from his body.  He has hands the size of a Zorracian Moon Octopus and uses them to catch the ball.

     But its more than raw physical talent.  Its technique this guy is a craftsman! He has excellent hand technique.  Its going to be really hard for DBs to press White in the NFL.  White is a huge Larry Fitzgerald fan and models his game after Fitzgerald and while he is a possession receiver in the same way Fitzgerald is, some scouts think a better comparison is Ashlon Jeffrey.

   KWhiteCannon

     But if I had to compare Kevin White to any weapon I would compare him to a H-Alpha Cannon!  Big Hops, Big Hands, Great Hand Technique – BOOM!!!  Anyone knows that is an H-Alpha Cannon.

  2. finfanrob says:

    piggy, you guys realize that the new blog didnt appear at the top of the page. it is just to the left under recent post. when opening the blog it still has the first one as like the current blog

  3. herdfan says:

    yeah, I have to fix it. it’s because the other one is sticky! lol

  6. The Flying Pig says:

    By the way
    We created a category for scouting reports
    So if anyone wants to submit one
    Let us know

  7. herdfan says:

    Only thing I’m going to say about the post Piggy is he went to WVU. I am biased of course, but historically a lot of their players don’t do very well professionally.

  8. wyoming85 says:

    Lets get some Viagra from Yale!
    Seriously that boy loves to play football!
    The anti-Martin if you please

  9. wyoming85 says:

    Lippit looked good in his limited sample
    Carl and the DL looked OK
    But any SEC O-lineman is fucking kick ASS

  10. wyoming85 says:

      • wyoming85 says:

        Not a big fan of Smith
        would rather take Hill/Perriman in the 4th or 5th
        Other that that I like it!

  12. Ken says:

    Wyoming:
    Varga is awesome. I have had a chance to see him live several times and the kid is a beast. Good receiver out of the backfield as well. My next door neighbor coaches secondary at Yale and he had lots of good things to say about Varga.

    • rgs322 says:

      The kid is a triple threat. …run, catch, and block. He’ll make some team very happy come draft time.

      • Ken says:

        He can block. Also keep an eye on Yale’s qb for next year’s draft. Morgan Roberts. He transferred from Clemson 2 years ago and really can play. He had an excellent season. Yale really surprised a lot of people this year after being a pretty bad team for a number of years. I like the head coach. Tony Reno. He runs a wide open offense over there.

  13. rgs322 says:

    In a perfect world, I would have gotten Dawson in the 2nd and Tomlinson in the 3rd.

  14. bookman11 says:

    Random thought: I hope the new version of the stadium is more crowded and louder than the version represented by the picture at the top of the blog.

    Playoff team wouldn’t hurt with that.

  15. cavalierkong says:

    Wassup? We have an ETA for the blog going public yet? I still can’t log on from work which is why my charming presence has been missed. 🙂 Since I’ve never had a problem with any other wordpress blog I figure it has to be because it’s private.

  16. rgs322 says:

    The Yale/Harvard game was actually good this year. Yale definitely gave them a game. I enjoyed watching a good chunk of it.

    • Ken says:

      That was a really good game. Bad day for my neighbor. They played another great game this year vs. Army. I was at that one and Varga was a beast in that. 4 or 5 TDs including the game winner in OT.

  17. Ken says:

    Kong, the blog is public now. The training wheels have come off. LOL.

  18. Ken says:

    Kong:
    If you just type in finsmobunleashed.com in the browser it should get you there. It did for me today.

  19. cavalierkong says:

    The notifications on the upper right are sweet. You can see if somebody replied to your comment without having to continually scroll b

  20. Ken says:

    Good to see Bookman here. I agree better attendance would be nice for us.

  21. CavalierKong says:

    test

  22. The Flying Pig says:

    It went live this morning

  23. marinofan13 says:

    Just checking in at the door, lettin’ ya know I still LUV y’all. Thanks to ALL for your requests for me to post here; you ARE appreciated!

  24. Ken says:

    Piggy:
    Nice breakdown on Kevin White. It looks to be another strong year for WRs

  25. The Flying Pig says:

    In case you never saw Varga
    Here he is
    Poor quality video
    It’s tough to tell against this level of competition
    But he just sprints for the hole
    If nothing more I be the can be a good ST player

  26. Ken says:

    On NFL Radio they were talking about Varga when he was invited to go to the Senior Bowl. Varga was the #3 rated overall prospect in the CFL draft but he declined to go to the CFL because he wants to play in the NFL.

  27. Mike E. says:

    Hey guys! Nice scouting report Wedgy!

  28. Ken says:

    Alright guys I need to get some sleep.

  29. The Flying Pig says:

    An Oinkee Poll was added

    • CavalierKong says:

      Can’t vote for a guy that was suspended 4 games (Jones), Wake disappears in too many big games, Grimes and Mitchell aren’t bad choices but Grimes was pretty average the second half of the season and Mitchell was part of a unit that flat out collapsed the second half. I voted for Mitchell by default but I’d probably pick Jelani Jenkins only because our LB unit would have been screwed without him.

  30. Mike E. says:

    Hey M! Glad you made it!

  31. Mike E. says:

    Out folks! Goodnight

  32. rgs322 says:

    Updated:

    My watch/favorite list for the draft as of today is as follows.

    OL- La’el Collins-LSU, Laken Tomlinson-Duke, Arie Kouandjio- Alabama
    DT- Danny Shelton-Washington, Malcom Brown- Texas, Michael Bennett- Ohio St.
    WR- Phillip Dorsett- Miami, Justin Hardy- ECU, Ty Montgomery- Stanford
    ILB- Denzel Perryman- Miami, Paul Dawson-TCU, Shaq Thompson- Washington
    TE- Maxx Williams- Minnesota, Clive Walford- Miami
    CB- D’Joun Smith-FAU, Jalen Collins-LSU, Senquez Golson- Ole Miss, Steven Nelson- Oregon St.
    FS- Chris Hackett- TCU, Jaquiski Tartt- Samford

    If we could somehow get 5 of these guys in the draft, I would do cartwheels.

  33. getterdone says:

    GAME DAY…32 weeks from now…ugh.

    That may be a good sign?
    Or a really really bad one!

    • The Flying Pig says:

      a good sign I guess
      the team is behind Wallace….

    Vote Oinkee
    Vote for the Snout Smasher

  39. Mike E. says:

    Glad to see that Branden Albert wants Mike Wallace back. You can’t underestimate the value of that. Very happy to see that, and I’d say it’s a very strong indication he will be back. Work things out, it’s the right thing to do.

    • wyoming85 says:

      Unless it creates a cluster fuck in the locker room!
      I’m not a Philbin basher but he doesn’t seem to have the pulse of the players?

    • stangerx says:

      Not sure if Wallace will be back or not — we all saw what happened with Vontae. Pretty positive though that he wouldn’t if he could be cut with a small cap hit though.

  40. stangerx says:

    Nice piece Pig — and what a shocker that your first prospect looked at is a wideout. 🙂

  41. Mike E. says:

    Wyo

    Philbin is going to have to learn more about Coach-player relationships. If the players like Mike, I don’t think it will it will tear the team apart necessarily, but it won’t win him any points either. He has to do what’s best for the team, but he has to be very careful in his judgement on this one. Not only would it make some guys on the team unhappy, but we lose a lot of production, and I think potential production as well, and it won’t be easy to replace right away.

  42. stangerx says:

    Danny Shelton is 6’2″ and 339 lbs. That is pure NT size, yet he is athletic enough that he played both DE and DT at Washington. That’s impressive.

  43. Try Pod says:

    Good morning :-[
    I used to watch so much football, college and pro. I just can’t do it any more. I don’t know exactly why. Tim had mentioned a few things I agree with like Joe this game is being officiated; having a family and different responsibilities had added to it; besides that, I used to go out and actually, you know, play a little football with done friends. Interestingly enough, I think my willingness to consume has gone down in relation to the increase in access- when we were younger, we had our local paper, football magazines we could buy at the bookstore (Smith’s was one of them, I think), and of course what would come on the tv on the weekend. Since those days we have 24/7 sports networks dedicated football, internet, sports bars, blogs.. I may have to consider the overabundance of availability as a contributor to my lack of excitement. I used to have to do some work- now, I just have to say, “Suri- latest info on Miami Dolphins…”

    • Try Pod says:

      Joe this? Really?
      Insert “how this”
      There are several others, but I am only halfway through my first cup

    • stangerx says:

      Try — maybe I was more excited when I was younger, but in those days I got to see the Phins 3-5 times per year in the NY area. I’ll take any time after sports bars showing the Phins and then Direct TV came into my life.

  44. Mike E. says:

    Stanger – That’s another huge reason not to cut him. You eat too much cap space anyway. I think the only way you get rid of Wallace is through a trade, and that’s extremely unlikely at his bloated salary.

    • stangerx says:

      I agree. I am hoping that Philbin and him come to an agreement, but not like players don’t get sometimes when it doesn’t make sense for on the field.

  45. Mike E. says:

    Try – I have definitely lost my fervor for all things sports. I used to watch 100-120 Met games, and now since they haven’t been very competitive, I’ve lessened that substantially. I would watch 20-25 Knicks games, but not anymore. I still watch every Dolphins game, but if there were more than 16, and they weren’t playing well, I’d probably cut down on that as well. I think it’s normal. I’ve become more skeptical about sports, and how fair and on the up and up things are. That hurts my interest too.

  46. Try Pod says:

    Stanger, Mike,
    Do either of you think it may be, in part, because we no longer relate to those playing? I don’t mean relate in any one way (age, ethnicity, age, lifestyle, etc.)?

    • stangerx says:

      Maybe, but it was changing for me even as I was still playing rugby, which I did till I was 33.

      A big difference for me was that age factor though. Will admit there is a difference as it changed from looking at those on the field from gods to men to young men to now kids. Same as with my doctors. That first time you walk and realize yours is younger than you is a moment.

  47. Try Pod says:

    Can someone rah out to boulder? He’s lost and can’t find his way here

  48. The Flying Pig says:

    I think Philbin has to learn to deal with different types if players too

    But I think he was right for pulling Wallace who was making little effort in final game

    Good for Philbin for that move

    Now we are stuck with a diva
    He needs to deal with it

    Unless
    We got a really good offer from another team

    • Try Pod says:

      Until you started bringing it up, I never really thought about it, but I think you make a good point: part of being a coach is being able to deal with different personalities, and the way it had been portrayed it would appear as if Philbin wants only choir boys, which just is not reasonable. They have to be willing to work as a team, and they have to be willing to take responsibility for their craft, but the don’t all have to like to go to church.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        Coaches want their guys
        And I understand that
        I think he has gone a little too Boy Scout though

        I think he just to tolerate some different personalities a little more
        Other coaches have gone through that before

      • stangerx says:

        Agree that he could loosen up a bit, I’d rooting for a team that is like the old Raiders of the Ryan-coached Jets. I like to like the guys on my team.

  49. Mike E. says:

    Try

    I just emailed Boulder.

  50. Mike E. says:

    Try

    I’d say age more than anything. I think with age comes wisdom, and with wisdom, you see that it’s not really worth wasting so much time on this stuff. That’s what I think, can’t say that applies to everyone though.

  51. Try Pod says:

    I see both of your points (reasons for waning interest in sports). You both more or less say age, and I have considered that alone and in conjunction with other potential reasons. It all leads me back to the ability to relate- I find it harder and harder to do so.

  52. stangerx says:

    Try — never been particularly religious but when I was a kid about the only time I prayed was to make a deal with god in order for the Pirates to get a key hit back in the ninth inning. Those days are over……might just be the way it is.

  53. Try Pod says:

    I used to get really excited when the off-season college and pro magazines would come out ( Street and Smith’s?). If it had a Hurricane or a Dolphin on the cover, even better. I also liked when the Dolphin Digest would come in the mail. It was usually a week late, for some reason, but it made the team seem more a part of my life, like I was one of an exclusive few who had inside info on the team. Lol

  54. wyoming85 says:

    I’ll say it!
    The THUG lifestyle turns me OFF!
    I can’t stand the NBA anymore!
    But that is a personal thing
    I work with the thugs and bangers on the jobsite because I get paid too!
    But for my entertainment choices I can turn the channel!

    • Try Pod says:

      I got to say, if it was all a bunch of Mormons playing and not people of different backgrounds and ethnic makeup, I still don’t know that I’d feel any different, although I admit the so-called “thug lifestyle” is not something that attracts me, either, but that is mostly because that is a generation and a half behind mine.

  55. Mike E. says:

    Try

    Getting a Dolphins Digest in the mail was exciting as hell! That was before the proliferation of 8,000,000 different sports websites. Saturated now, just too much sports on the web, and especially on TV

    Herd

    jetssuck couldn’t get in, I think he forgot his password. Doesn’t it give you an opportunity to create a new password if you click on the “forgot password” tab?

    • herdfan says:

      It should. I sent him an email as well but haven’t heard back yet. I told him we’ll figure something out if he still has issues.

  59. wyoming85 says:

    Later folks
    Gotta pick up the new toy! 🙂

  60. Brian in NY says:

    Trypod,

    It is a combination of things mentioned above: advancing age, us maybe not relating to the players now as they are much younger, the sports industry becoming more like a business now, etc. But Mike briefly touched on the biggest factor – success, or the lack thereof. If a team starts winning, fans are much more invested in their teams. If your team is very succesful, you make a much greater effort to watch them, and your interest is much greater as well. I for one can tell you that I have watched more Islanders games this season that the past five combined.

    • getterdone says:

      Joe is still striving for that winning 9-7 mark, then they will come…lol 😉

    • stangerx says:

      For sure on that. Always amazed at how many fanatic fans a team has when they hit the playoffs, even if they can only name like five players on the team.

      That’s not us for sure…….but we’ve all seen the swings in intensity with our group btwn winning and losing streaks.

      And I’m the same way with other sports. Been following the Pirates a whole lot more the last two years. Sure I knew the players, but last year I bought the MLB package.

  61. stangerx says:

    “This comes as no real surprise as Clay and DT Jared Odrick are Miami’s top two free agents. Clay is coming off a down year where he fought through a season-long knee injury. It should help lower his price.”

    Whether to us or someone else, what do you guys think Clay gets? I’m thinking in the four-to-five mil range.

    • Brian in NY says:

      That;s exactly where I was thinking Stanger- about $4million.

    • getterdone says:

      I’d keep my offer real reasonable, if he wants too much then give that money to Julius Thomas or Gresham.

    • stangerx says:

      I left out the most important part of that quote — the Dolphins have expressed “privately” that they want to re-sign Clay.

      • Ken says:

        How does someone privately express something? Isn’t the mere fact that you are expressing something inherently not a private act?

      • getterdone says:

        I’m sure they do, why not, he knows the new offense, he should come very reasonable to stay home, he’s proven to be a good receiver, and he just needs to prove he can stay healthy a full season.

  62. getterdone says:

    No one commented on Ol Willie Nelson’s yearbook photo of him as a football player back in 1948…maybe OD will appreciate it 😉

  63. Ken says:

    What’s up FUers? I just liked saying that. LOL.

  64. Tim Knight says:

    I don’t think Wallace’s status is just based on Philbin. I think it’s the entire org including his teammates. He quit on his team. This isn’t about Philbin can’t handle egos, it’s about a player willing to quit.

    • Brian in NY says:

      I think it’s a moot point regardless. I can’t see us getting rid of him in any capacity. Albert probably doesn’t feel as strongly as he wasn’t playing in the last game.

    • getterdone says:

      Ever the Philbin apologist…jk/bb…I think it will be discussed by all the decision makers, not just Philbin. Plus again, as we know, the contract situation should also play a part in that decision, along with any offers or not.

  65. Ken says:

    I don’t know if we keep Wallace or not but if I am a betting man I say we don’t. Philbin has proven to be not shy of getting rid of players he sees as a problem child and as evidenced by what he did with Chad Johnson, he doesn’t really care what the other players think. If we wants to move somebody he will. That all said I don’t know what will happen. Maybe Wallace had a come to Jesus meeting with Philbin. We will find out.

    • getterdone says:

      Was Gibson in on the meeting? 😉

    • Brian in NY says:

      I think we keep him one more year, and then he’s gone. I just can’t see a scenario where it makes sense to get rid of him. He’s not THAT bad where we have to jettison him immediately,

      • Ken says:

        Lets see what happens in FA and draft. We don’t have to make a move but don’t be surprised if we target a WR or 2 in FA and draft. If so Wallace may well be gone.

  66. getterdone says:

    Was reading where Gurley is projected by several scouts as a day 2 pick right about where the Phins are picking…he could provide a nice trade down scenario for us by a playoff team hungry for a RB.

  67. Tim Knight says:

    Fans on the blog have been saying for years that our team quit at the end of the year when they finished poorly. I’ve always said if that’s the case, if I was the coach or GM I’d cut everyone of them if I knew that for sure. We all saw Wallace quit. That said I still don’t see how they can move him without taking a big hit. I can’t see a team trading for him either as they know what his issues are as well.

    • getterdone says:

      Yeah, he seems to be our re headed step child for now.
      I bet Philbin tells Aponte & Hickey don’t let that kinda contract happen again.

  69. Try Pod says:

    Brian,
    You are absolutely correct- winning, or at least success, does contribute to the continuing interest one has. I know this because of my interest in the Miami heat, and that I know much more about what’s going on because of their recent success. I suppose I need to give that more weight in my considerations. But absent of that, it does not answer the overall waning of my interest in consuming the product.

    • Brian in NY says:

      I hear you. Addiitonally,it drains on you over the years if your team is not successful for an extended period of time. I’m currently living in Dolphins, Mets, Knicks and Islanders hell, although the Islanders have given me reason for hope this season. I haven’t seen a championship out of any of those teams in 29 years.

  70. getterdone says:

    Ken, a certain DGB would make us forget about Wallace pretty quickly 🙂

  71. Ken says:

    Tim:
    If a guy quit on the team you take the cap hit. To do so otherwise sends the wrong message to the players. That your contract is more important than your performance and effort on the field.

    • Try Pod says:

      Reason would say then, if they keep him, they do not think he quit on the team, no?

      • Ken says:

        yes or they feel he is truly repentant and won’t do it again. One or the other. We also don’t know all the facts behind what happen so it is hard to figure what is going to happen.

      • getterdone says:

        Only Gibson knows for sure…lol

      • Ken says:

        Or the team just makes the wrong decision. That remains a possibility as well.

      • Try Pod says:

        Sure, and I agree- we DON’T know the true/whole story. We can only speculate on what we have gleaned from various sources, and the reliability we ascribe to them.

    • Try Pod says:

      Ultimately, I agree with your point, that being the message sent to the team if they keep him when it is believed/proven he quit on the team. Production/performance> contract.

    How does someone privately express something?
    ————————–
    Ken — in NFLeeze my guess is that means the Phins started contract negotiations and the first thing Clay’s agent did after he hung up the phone was call the Herald…….off record of course.

  73. steveccnv says:

    I don’t think Wallace quit on the team, I think they shut him down, so he wouldn’t get hurt in a meaningless game they wanted to lose.

  74. herdfan says:

    Welcome Steve!

  75. Ken says:

    I really did like Wallace and thought he was playing hard almost all season. In partcular the New England game and the Vikings game I thought Wallace showed a lot of toughness. But I am very bothered by the possibility that he may have quit on the team. That is hard to justify to keeping someone like that on the roster if true.

  76. Tim Knight says:

    Ken, we clearly saw Wallace quit and walk away from the play.

    GDP, Wallace’s contract was an Ireland signing. I don’t think Philbin thinks too much about contracts, just player performance. Coaches need to know they can rely on guys. That’s why Matthews is in the dog house, he seems to be late for meetings and loses concentration is games based on some reports. He’s a former 7th rd pick who doesn’t have big status so it comes down to accountability and reliability, nothing more.

    • getterdone says:

      Yeah I know Wallace was a Jeffro signing, and I mentioned Philbin bringing up the contract as he knows it may saddle him with Wallace another year.
      I do agree Wallace walked away, I saw it. If he was just being shut down to prevent injury then they have said so, and they surely wouldn’t have had poor Tanny out there getting mauled every 1.7 sec after the snap.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Yeah the pass pro got really ugly down the stretch of that game. That has to be corrected or it will be more of the same in 2015.

  77. Ken says:

    Alright my son needs the computer to do homework. I am out for now. Peace.

  78. Try Pod says:

    Hello Steve- glad to see you here.

  79. getterdone says:

    Stanger, so are you saying Jim Nabors was a ball buster too or a ball deflater?

  80. Tim Knight says:

    Piggy, good writeup on Kevin White. He’s the type of WR I think could help put our offense over the top.

  81. Mike E. says:

    Tim

    Big difference (To me at least) between quitting when the playoffs are on the line, and when you were eliminated from the playoffs. Also, as I’ve stated before, it seemed like the whole team was just going through the motions in that game.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Well quitting with the playoffs on the line never made any sense to me. Also what something seems like as opposed to a clear action of quitting are two different things.

  82. Mike E. says:

    Hey Steve – Glad you made it here!

  83. getterdone says:

    I really can’t see Hartline staying unless he really takes a big pay cut…keep Wallace 1 more year, draft their replacements, or draft one then a FA WR on a short term earn it deal like Crabtree.

    • Tim Knight says:

      It’s hard to say who’s defensive player of the year the way they finished. Wake is Wake, but I’d give it to Jenkins who got thrust into the lineup after Ellerbe got hurt and led the team in tackles and also had 3.5 sacks from a none sack position.

  87. stangerx says:

    steveccnv — then that shot during the game where Philbin walks up to Wallace where they have a brief exchange and Joe abruptly walks away with a “back to the game” look was all for show. Just not buying it. Good to see you though.

        I told her it’s the name for a really big grouper that has been PC renamed to ‘Goliath grouper’.

      • getterdone says:

        LOL, yeah & Key West is full of rainbow’s bent over.

  89. getterdone says:

    Damn, I wonder what they paid this 25yo CB, and I wonder if the Phins had any interest. Saves a draft pick.

    Saints signed CB Delvin Breaux.
    A shutdown corner in the CFL, Breaux received strong interest from NFL teams this offseason. He lands in a good spot with the Saints, who had some of the worst cornerback play in the league last year. At 6-foot-1, 195, Breaux has prototype size for Rob Ryan’s Press Man concepts. With Keenan Lewis and Terrence Frederick currently atop the Saints’ depth chart, Breaux will have a chance for immediate playing time.

  90. Mike E. says:

    Tim

    Yes, quite true. Can’t argue that.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Unfortunately I feel our team has worn down late in the year and the main culprit has been the LOS on both sides of the ball. We’re undersized on the DL overall and our OL hasn’t been settled since it started to come apart with Jake’s decline.

  91. Mike E. says:

    BBL – Gotta go to my office. I’m hoping I left my cell phone there, otherwise I’m f’d. 😦

  92. getterdone says:

    This Gator can be had late rounds….could be a good add.

    Florida senior OL Max Garcia’s “effort and hand placement have stood out on tape when we’ve studied him this week,” observed Scout’s Inc.
    “He’s so good at latching on to his man that he can quickly get back into position even when he loses balance. He isn’t the most physically gifted lineman, but he consistently executes his assignment,” wrote Todd McShay, Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl. Garcia, a former Maryland Terrapin, has made starts at center, left tackle and left guard during his career. CBS Sports’ Rob Rang likes his knee bend and flexibility.

  93. Tim Knight says:

    We have to fortify the middle of the defense – DT, MLB and the other S position. Then do the same on the OL at G with Pouncey back at C and hoping Albert is ready to go at LT with James back at RT. Hopefully some of those positions are already on the roster, they just weren’t ready in 2014.

    Jordan and McCain have to help Wake and Vernon by getting more snaps. We’re undersized at DE so we need to split the snaps more to keep the pass rush fresh late in games and in the season.

  94. finfanrob says:

    wow, just two days of going live and this blog turns into football talk. wtf. i thought this blog was about making fun of tim.

  95. The Flying Pig says:

    (Piggy throws a rotten tomato at Tim)

  96. Tim Knight says:

    This is just me thinking about the defense. It doesn’t mean the team agrees with me. LOL

    Sign a stout anchor DT in the mid-range pay scale. A guy who can keep our LBs clean. I would roll with that guy, Mitchell and Starks. Let Odrick walk, he’s the guy who is a UFA and will be looking for his biggest payday whatever that is. I really feel Fede can do what Odrick does at a much cheaper rate, and I like Odrick. He just never reached the level I thought he would.

    Hope to get Misi healthy, maybe even Ellerbe and draft an athletic LB to go along with Jenkins. I don’t see any reason to keep Wheeler on board. He doesn’t fit what we’re asking him to do. He’s an attack LB and we have edge guys and other better all around LBs who can do that. He’s a fish out of water.

    At Safety it would be great if Aikens could land the other S spot along with Jones. But competition is always good. Need some depth at corner too with Taylor, Davis and Finnegan all struggling with injuries. I don’t think Finnegan will be back. Wilson is also a UFA.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I would not count in a healthy Misi
      I think the possibility of adding a DT, LB or 2, S and CB seen pretty strong
      On offense a WR, RB and 2 OGs seem likely

      I’m thinking we have more than 10 new faces in the roster next season
      I guess you can add half a dozen in the draft and if 3 can make an impact in year 1 that’s a luxury
      A half dozen more in FA – mostly cheap 1 year contracts

      My big question mark is whether we chase any high price FAs

      • Tim Knight says:

        All I’m saying is get Misi healthy and let him compete with possibly even Ellerbe. I’d draft a LB for sure and add another one somehow as well. But we can’t gut every position and expect it all to go hunky-dory. We have to rely on some guys we already have but also have a plan B.

  97. Tim Knight says:

    (Tim puts a pork roll in Piggy’s pocket on his way to the National Pig Convention)

  98. The Flying Pig says:

    You son of a bitch!

    • Tim Knight says:

      LOL

      So are you on board with Kevin White at #14? From what I saw of him on video is he can run routes in our offense – bubble screens, quick slants and outs, go vertical and definitely play the ball on red zone plays.

  99. Mike E. says:

    I agree with fortifying the middle of the defense. Just like a beisbol, chu have to be strong up de middle. (DT, MLB, S)

  100. Mike E. says:

  106. BoulderPhinfan says:

    I hope we bring in someone with a lot d-line experience to replace rodgers. how about shwartz the bills dc. I don’t think he has a job yet and the bills d-line was awesome last year.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Schwartz has coached the two best D-lines in the league in DET and BUF in recent years. I happen to think he’s a jerk so I’d pass.

  107. Tim Knight says:

    Hey Boulder, so besides Philbin and his staff sucking, how do the Dolphins get better despite them? 😉

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      I’m not sure they can. But I would start with the o-line and then d-line and the rest of defense. I know everyone thinks we should dump wallace but I would try and keep him. he needs to have heart to heart and i bet he’ll behave a lot better next year because he’ll be playing for a contract.

      • Tim Knight says:

        He has a big contract already, $30M guaranteed. 5 years $60M overall. He’s super fast and played more physical this year – no doubt. But I saw him give up on passes that weren’t perfect and also walked away from helping Williams get more yards. Landry a second later showed the difference between the two mentalities. Wallace bummed me out. You won’t win with that attitude. Marshawn Lynch won’t be cordial with the media but he plays 100%.

  108. Mike E. says:

    Boulder
    I think Schwartz is a good defensive coach, but the D-line in BUF was awesome because it’s awesome, not because of the coaches. They have a lot of talent on that line.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      yea. But my point is Coyle is not a good with the defensive line and LBs. He’s more of a secondary guy. We need someone with experience coaching the d-line.

      • Mike E. says:

        I hear that. That’s true

      • Tim Knight says:

        Top 5 defense for 10 games. What went wrong? Coaching? If you keep thinking that you’d be wrong. They wore down. It was obvious. You don’t go from #8 against the run through 10 games and finish 24th because of coaching.

        We’re an undersized defense that is being built in concert with an offense that controls the ball and the tempo of the game. The objective is to score points and make the opponent one dimensional on offense. Then let the dogs out. Whether we’re there yet doesn’t matter, that’s the philosophy. Lot’s of teams use that model.

  109. BailBondMike says:

    That is a very good point Tim

    • Tim Knight says:

      Thank you. If the coaching was that apparently bad it would have been that way from the beginning. This team isn’t good enough yet and nobody wants to accept it except for Randy. LOL

      How did we get to 7-5 with a chance at 11-5? Poor coaching all along? That boggles my mind.

      Fans act like we’ve been 4-12 the last 3 years. 8-8 is the best we’ve been since 2008. Right, horrible coaching with all that great talent the incompetent GM Ireland brought in.

      Anyone else see a contradiction here? LOL

    Mike,
    Walford’s one catch doesn’t say anything about the way he performed. It’s true, he had a GREAT week of practice and will no doubt be the first TE taken. I’m loving the kid because he can break down a defender like a wr. Walford was nursing and injury and decided to try and play in the game and made one catch and was nailed by Jordan Hicks but hung on to the ball. I know everyone seems to be high on Clay right now but Walford would give us a Graham or Gronk-like weapon at the TE position.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Maybe.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I know Clay can play.

      • professor lou says:

        Clay can play, there’s no doubt but he had a drop in production last year missing two games. The big thing wasn’t so much the yards as much as it was the td’s. He dropped from 6 to 3 td’s on the year. Plus, he didn’t seem to be the threat last year he was the year before. I like Clay but I’m not married to the guy either if we can upgrade the position.

  142. wyoming85 says:

    FFR

    Clive Walford, TE, Miami
    With 14th pick in 3rd take:
    Laken Tomlinson, OG, Duke
    That’s all I got for right now but I would love a draft like that.

  144. professor lou says:

    I wouldn’t mind seeing Kevin White from TCU wearing a Fins uni this season.

  145. professor lou says:

    I like Qunadre Diggs to take over the nickel for Jimmy Wilson. He’s a true nickel who can cover and can tackle much better than Wilson. He’s currently a fifth rd projection.

  146. professor lou says:

    Problem I see with almost everyone who is on this team is that there’s just about nobody that’s not replaceable and that includes Tanny. When we have conversations about current players on the roster and prospects in the draft or FA the only thing I can say is that I didn’t see anyone play all that outstanding that we can’t afford to lose him.
    If Odrick goes we can either pick up someone in FA or the draft and are most likely going to upgrade the position. If we lose Clay you can say the same thing. Clay can play and has been an important part of the offense but 6 td’s in 2013 and 3 in 2014 are hardly numbers that can’t be had by someone else. If we draft a guy like Strong or Hardy at wr we will probably more than replace those numbers.
    So, I’m not going to lament the loss of most of these guys when I look at the talent that’s out there. Martrell Spaight from Arkansas is an OLB that would replace Trusnik day one. Granted Trusnik is a sub but Spaight’s an upgrade. Jordan Hicks is another guy who’d put Trusnik on another team. Again, things wouldn’t be as dire as anyone may think if we lose some of these guys:
    Odrick
    Hartline
    Clay
    Thomas
    Wilson
    Trusnik
    Garner
    Brenner
    Satele

    David Johnson from Northern Iowa makes Thomas replaceable day one. So would Cameron Stingily of Northern Illinois.

    Tim,
    Clay is going to be looking for the big pay day and we probably aren’t going to give him what another team may throw out there at him. So, I don’t see him back.

  148. Mike E. says:

    Gotta bring Diggs here. lol

  149. Mike E. says:

    Lou
    Hard to judge Clay this year because I’m not sure if he was ever really healthy at all. He played through it, so I give him props for that. Not sure if he’s going to really get a big payday anywhere, but I don’t think we’ll go overboard for him.

    • twicethethe says:

      I think one of the concerns for Clay coming out of college was his size/durability for the NFL. He seems to have held up pretty well for the most part, but for how long?

  150. Ken says:

    What’s up FUers? I just love saying that.

  151. Ken says:

    I am happy Tyler Varga had a great Senior Bowl. I have been watching him for 4 years here in Connecticut and he can play. He actually would be a good fit for us as Yale plays the spread option. Get rid of DT3 and get Varga in round 5.

    • Mike E. says:

      Powerback?

    • professor lou says:

      I’d rather David Johnson or Cameron Stingily to replace DT3. Johnson can more than replace DT3 as a pass catching back and definitely runs with more power than he ever did but even at his size he can still make a move to make people miss. Stingily will just run right over you like Larry Csonka but he’s a one cut guy who can make the first guy miss. Either way, it’s a bug upgrade to the DT3 experiment.

      • Ken says:

        It’s not hard to be a big upgrade over DT3. I know of Johnson and like him. Not familiar with Stingily. I do like Varga but that comes from watching the kid here for the past 4 years. I do think he is a good fit as Yale plays that spread option and Varga was very effective in that set.

    Prof Lou
    Good to see you here posting
    Always like your draft insight
    I knee come draft time you would start posting like a madman

  153. Try Pod says:

    OD needs help getting on to FU

    • herdfan says:

      What’s the issue? If he’s using the invite he got before it was public, that could cause him trouble. I can send him a new invite, see if that helps.

      • Try Pod says:

        I only read about it. I don’t know specifically, as he had not explained his issue with any clarity, other than to ask if he had been blocked. Is someone could reach out to Stanger, that would probably be best.

    Powerback?

    just for saying that and using that word you deserve a case of the macy shits.

  155. herdfan says:

    ffr, we may need to send you to OD’s house to help him sign on to the blog. 🙂

  156. finfanrob says:

    i will not go to OD’s house. i absolutely refuse to bail out admin when they are in a time of need. i know what happens to those who step in for admin just to help out.

    they get throat punched.

  157. Ken says:

    Alright. I am going to turn in early. Next couple of days we have a blizzard coming this way so things are going to get crazy. I need to get my beauty sleep. I am out. Peace to you all.

  158. Mike E. says:

    LOL @ FFR

  159. Mike E. says:

    Goodnight Ken

  160. Mike E. says:

    FFR – If it makes you feel any better, my stomach has been awful tonight. Thanks! 😉

  161. getterdone says:

    Does Hulk count sheep in sleep or rip their lil wooly heads off? Ayyy

  162. Mike E. says:

    Watched some of the Senior Bowl practices earlier. Walford and Dorsett really did well for themselves. I could be wrong, but Walford just doesn’t look fast or explosive to me.

    • professor lou says:

      From what I saw of him in the one on one’s they had to tape some defenders ankles when he was finished.

      • Mike E. says:

        Ah, so more shifty than fast? I saw him catching almost everything, and he uses his size well, but he just didn’t look like he was moving quickly.

  163. Mike E. says:

    I think Hulk becomes Ken in his peaceful, sleepy state. If, however, he dreams (or has a nightmare) about the end of either of the last 2 seasons, he most likely wakes up as the Hulk, and tears shit up!

  164. getterdone says:

    Sitting here thinking what a tough quandary that Hickey & Aponte have, besides all the team FA talk here, not much is being mentioned of offering Tanny a good contract that will tie him up for the next 5-6yrs. When they do that, then what do they do with FA Matt Moore? He either takes a huge cut, or looks elsewhere.
    I’d say he looks elsewhere. The Browns may be interested in Moore instead of resigning Hoyer, then you have teams like the Texans he could compete for a starting role as well.

    Folks, we are likely to see a lot of movement on this team after March till June 1.

  165. Mike E. says:

    I think Moore is likely gone. Once we give the big bucks to Tanny, Moore will look elsewhere

  166. Mike E. says:

    GDP – The good thing is, when you’re 7-9, 8-8, and 8-8, you don’t feel so bad losing players, because some of these guys are the reason why we’ve been just average. Matt Moore doesn’t really figure into that equation, but a lot of the other guys do.

    • getterdone says:

      Ok Tim, I thought it was coaching 😉
      Yeah I agree, we need talent upgrades in key areas, but you also have to try and hold onto drafted players and let them develop. Cause as we’ve seen over and over…pricey FA’s from other teams don’t workout more often than they do.
      Fortunately we have several 2nd-4th year guys that were drafted by us that can start to peak some.

  167. getterdone says:

    Mike, it’s too bad we couldn’t have traded the $4M Moore in 2013 while we could have gotten something for him….but who knew Tanny could stand up under that beating and not miss a game…lol

    • Mike E. says:

      Can’t think like that. Every team has to have a backup. I’m not sure if we could have gotten significant compensation for Moore anyway.

      • getterdone says:

        It was a pickle we were in with Moore, I’ve mentioned it before. Everything is about timing usually in this league.

    Richard Sherman says NFL will probably not punish Patriots due to Roger Goodell’s relationship w/ owner Robert Kraft. http://es.pn/1BqGxup

    He might be right . . .

      Hmm, give him another TV commercial….lol
      NFL Commissioner rep: Hi Mr. Sherman, we are here to get a sample…here, pee in this cup.

  169. finfanrob says:

    they ought to rename the pro bowl to the mike wallace bowl.

    they all are putting in the same effort.

  170. Mike E. says:

    GDP – You KNOW I think a lot of it is coaching, but some guys haven’t panned out here, and it’s time for them to take a hike! Philip Wheeler, Dannell Ellerbe, maybe Hartline, Starks, Odrick

  171. getterdone says:

    Mike E – All were other team FA’s sans Hartline & Odrick.
    Starks gave us good service (he may be getting too long in the tooth now)
    Hartline gave us good service (but his contract is hurting us & we’re upgrading our WR corp with more draft picks likely, it started with Landry)
    Odrick has been solid, stayed pretty healthy. He played the most snaps by far on the DL this past season. I’d resign him…you need a work horse like that.

  172. Mike E. says:

    FFR – Can’t believe you’re actually watching the Pro Bowl.

  173. Mike E. says:

    Odrick played a lot, but not a lot to show for it. 1 sack, 23 tackles, 6 assists, 1 FF, 1 FR

    Think I should run tomorrow’s blog now?

  177. finfanrob says:

    ok night all. once again great job with this blog. catch you all later and by all means be safe

  178. Mike E. says:

    Goodnight FFR

  179. getterdone says:

    Odrick is solid, you can’t go by stats alone. The film is a true indicator.
