Looking for a late round speedster Earthlings? So am I. With my alien sixth sense I found this guy from Maryland, Stefon Diggs, a bit of a day 3 seeper that might help the Dolphins stretch the field. After the Dolphins parted ways with Mike Wallace, the Dolphins may look to add a young speedster. I propose Stefon Diggs as the replacement.
When the ball is in Diggs’ hands its magic. Zoooooooooooooooooooooom! Diggs can fly. Now he didn’t turn heads per se at the combine. He ran a 4.46 which is fast but not exactly Mike Wallace combine numbers…is that what you want now? Watch Diggs and see how quickly he accelerates. Watch his balance as he accelerates. That is, if he doesn’t flash right by you… This 6’0, 190 pound wide out from Maryland had 150 catches in three years at Maryland. He gained over 2200 receiving yards and scored 14 TDs. In addition to a receiving threat, Diggs can return kicks returning 2 for TDs in his time with Maryland.
So why is this speedster a day 3 pick? I don’t know….but the fact is sleepers happen, and you have to be on a lookout for them to have it happen to you. Diggs isn’t one of the big red zone threats that are going to go early in the first two days of the draft, so that might hurt his stock too. And he struggled with injuries during his college career – but what do you expect a sleeper to be?
If Stefon Diggs was an alien weapon of destruction he would be a organism seeking missile streaking across the galaxy! Zoooooooooooooooooooooooooom! Better hope the Dolphins are the team shooting the missile!

Do you think they should have Jordan spell Wake at LDE?
doubt it, he has a west coast education, they can barely spell cat.
He also blew himself up with a shop vac
sorry to hear about your friend.
You can try and screw Rob Housler, but you better be able to run a 4.45 to catch him. lol
LOL, in my best football days I was a 4.6 guy. He’s getting away CLEAN.
I was never clocked in the 40, but I bet it wouldn’t be pretty. Maybe between 18-30

Jordan Cameron runs 4.5. He led NFL tight ends with four catches of 40 yrds or more — including TDs of 81 and 51 yards.
PLEASE STAY HEALTHY!!!
Amen…….shiot that got me going religious.

Notice Omar left out the part that
nope, i notice omar about as much as i notice a karslutashian
Mike E, If I ran a timed 40 today I’d look like I was dragging a piano behind me.
Sometimes, it’s not really just luck…..
This story is confirmed in Elmer Bendiner’s book, The Fall of Fortresses.
Sometimes, it’s not really just luck.
Elmer Bendiner was a navigator in a B-17 during WW II. He tells this story of a World War II bombing run over Kassel, Germany , and the unexpected result of a direct hit on their gas tanks. “Our B-17, theTondelayo, was barraged by flak from Nazi antiaircraft guns. That was not unusual, but on this particular occasion our gas tanks were hit.
Later, as I reflected on the miracle of a 20 millimeter shell piercing the fuel tank without touching off an explosion, our pilot, Bohn Fawkes, told me it was not quite that simple. “On the morning following the raid, Bohn had gone down to ask our crew chief for that shell as a souvenir of unbelievable luck.
The crew chief told Bohn that not just one shell but 11 had been found in the gas tanks. 11 unexploded shells where only one was sufficient to blast us out of the sky. It was as if the sea had been parted for us. A near-miracle, I thought.
Even after 35 years, so awesome an event leaves me shaken, especially after I heard the rest of the story from Bohn.
He was told that the shells had been sent to the armorers to be defused. The armorers told him that Intelligence had picked them up. They could not say why at the time, but Bohn eventually sought out the answer. Apparently when the armorers opened each of those shells, they found no explosive charge. They were as clean as a whistle and just as harmless.
Empty? Not all of them! One contained a carefully rolled piece of paper. On it was a scrawl in Czech. The Intelligence people scoured our base for a man who could read Czech. Eventually they found one to decipher the note. It set us marvelling. Translated, the note read:
“This is all we can do for you now … using Jewish slave labor is never a good idea.”
That’s an amazing story.
nice story. i just finished reading Unbroken. i am so marveled at that generation yet every time i read a book or story about wwII vets i am left speechless once again. they are not just the greatest generation they are the greatest generation that this world has ever seen.
That’s next on my reading list. Both of my grandfathers fought in WWII, one in the Army and one in the Navy.
TO ANSWER A PRIOR QUESTION, yes, Housler I vaguely recall missed a few games with an injury last year. Can’t specifically remember what it was. As for his one TD, again putrid quarterbacking at Arizona certainly was a factor. DON’T get me wrong. He’s NOT the second coming of Kellen Winslow, Sr. –But 6’5″ TE’s who run 4.46 40’s are not plentiful. All I’m saying is bring him in and kick the tires. If he beats out Lynch for the 3rd TE spot, he may stick with this team.
Y’all DO KNOW that undrafted John Unitas was once CUT by the worst team in the NFL at that time, the Pittsburgh Steelers. –The Colts gave him a tryout and the rest is history. Same thing happened to an obscure back-up with the Browns, QB Len Dawson who was released by Paul Brown. He, too, became a Super Bowl winner and a Hall-of-Fame QB. –Perhaps someone more gifted than me can tell us HOW MANY undrafted free agents are in the HOF??–Housler, however, was NOT undrafted. He was taken in the 3rd round of the 2011 draft by the Cards.
i really enjoyed it. it was a pretty good read. however, i will tell you, may make you want to hate the Japaneses people. it sure colored my opinion of them.
I look forward to it. It’s not to disimilar to what most in that postiion would do I’m sure. Our military has committed some heinous acts while holding POW’s.
This is an interesting story:
TOMORROW’s edition of “ABSOLUTE PERFECTION” is the rematch in Buffalo of the Dolphins-Bills game, which the ’72 Dolphins won 2 weeks earlier in a 24-23 squeaker in the historic Orange Bowl. OJ Simpson and his pals (and over 50,000 mostly drunk Bills’ fans) are looking for revenge against our favorite team. I hope each and every one of you enjoys yet another chapter of THE PERFECT SEASON!!!!!!!
Didn’t they block an extra point late in the game to prevent the Bills from tying?
That’s a terrific story. I’d doubt the veracity of it though. What are the odds that not only would that bullet hit a plane, but that it would be retrieved, and read? In any case, still a great story.
i am sure there were some in our military who have done heinous acts. there are sick people in all walks of life. however, the difference is they are not sanctioned by our government. besides it is a total insult and slap in the face (not that i think you were meaning it that way) to the pacific POW’s to even say, ‘well our military did it too’. the atrocities they committed were completely inhumane.
MIKE E.; Saw your comments on “spell Wake.” –Reminded me of the Cowboys’ linebacker, Hollywood Henderson’s response to the question “Do you think Terry Bradshaw is stupid?” –He replied “Bradshaw couldn’t spell ‘cat” if you spotted him the “C” and the “A.”
Seems a bit hypocritical since nobody accused “Hollywood” of being a Rhodes scholar!
i wouldnt doubt the story. there were some amazing acts in wwII. hell even in the book unbroken, brian look away lol, even in the book the pow’s derailed a train.
March 24, 2015 at 8:05 pm
lol brian, take that. he told you now didnt he. dont you ever back talk your elders again.
LOL!! DON”T WANT to reveal too much of the story in advance!
Will admit that when I was a kid I though war, particularly WWII, was some kinda football game…..the ultimate sport that tested men. Read “With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa” by Eugene Sledge and it won’t seem so glamorous anymore (one of the books the Pacific was based on).
And that’s from a guy who didn’t have to try and sleep in zero degrees in a foxhole in Bastogne…….don’t think I could handle that last says the guy who happily moved to Florida.
OD, good points on Housler above….but Zona didn’t try to keep him, now he’s left the TE needy Falcons without a contract…so somethings not real kosher here….IMO.
NOT KOSHER? –Well I’ve been told Housler isn’t Jewish, if that’s what you mean. Still, I say it can’t hurt to invite him down for a workout and “kick the tires.” I’d like to see a real contest for the tight end positions on our team, or at least for ONE of those positions.–GOOD NIGHT TO ALL!!-Talk to you tomorrow. The Old guy is OUT!!
My condolences to you and your friends family brother!

Breakfast helps me #FuelGreatness even in the off-season, gotta start with a good meal before workouts. @FUTP60
WOW! Can you say pulling Guard?
Iowa OL Brandon Scherff recorded a 7.07 three-cone time at the school’s pro day.
Scherff also produced a 4.41 20 yard short shuttle. He ran neither at the Combine. The 7.07 would have been good for second best at the Combine since 2006. Just for fun, Scherff’s 3-cone time was faster than WR Jamison Crowder, Dezmin Lewis and just .01 slower than Chris Conley’s. We think a team will see Scherff as this year’s Zack Martin and select him to play guard, even though he could absolutely hold up at tackle. teams like to mimic recent successes of other clubs.
Who’d a thought of him?
LOL, I know….I haven’t been big on another 1st round OL, but if he’s still there @ #14 and we can’t find a good trade down partner…then I’d welcome the new Scherff in town! 😉
GDP: Reply for you about 4-5 spots up the page, OUT for tonight.
OD, gotcha…thanks for the reply. I think we’ll still see some competition at TE as well as many other spots…EXCEPT QB! 😉
My first try at a mock draft. I used Fanspeak. I do not think they are very realistic. Either that or I AM AWESOME. I’m kinda leaning toward the former. LOL
WR KEVIN WHITE
RB TODD GURLEY
G JOSUE MATIAS
S CLAYTON GEATHERS
DT LOUIS TRINCA-PASAT
G MILES DIEFFENBACH
I see 2 starters there depending on how Gurley’s knee heals.
