Wedge Scouting Report: La’El Collins

Outback Bowl - Iowa v LSUWedge ID

Hey Humans, how you doing?  Wedge is off today.  And that is good for you, because you voted an offensive lineman to be the subject of the scouting report today.  And Wedge knows nothing about offensive line.  But I do – I’m Chubby Wedge!  And I’m going to tell you all about La’El Collins.  Hope you don’t mind me eating a few Velusion Fish Suckers as we go.   Mmmmmmmm Fish Suckers.

FatWedge

Let’s start with the obvious.  La’El Collins is big.  Like behemoth big.  Collins is 6’4, 305 pounds.  His arms stretch 33 1/4 inches.  That’s a big wingspan.  He’s got a thick chest and a strong upper body.  At the combine he benched 225 lbs, 21 times.

Garble Garble mmmmm Garble Garble mmmm delicious Fish Suckers….mmmm I love your sweet tentacles.  Garble Garble…..oh excuse me, back to Collins.

LSU Florida Football

Collins played in 45 games in LSU.  He started as a sophomore – and played every game.  Started as a junior – and played every game.  Started as a senior – and played every game.  See the pattern.  This guy is pretty durable.

Despite starting at Left Tackle since a sophomore, most scouts seem to think Collins is better suited to play Right Tackle or Guard in the NFL.  Collins is more brawler than finesse player.  Many scouts will tell you, he probably doesn’t have the athleticism to play Left Tackle in the NFL.

La'El Collins3

Man is he nasty.  Just ask this Georgia defender.  Once he gets engaged with a defender:  MASH! MASH! MASH!  Just like my teeth are doing to this Fish Sucker….mmmmm….garble garble garble……mmmmmmmm

He’s so mean, it may take away from his balance and footwork.  But inside as a mauler it doesn’t matter.  MASH!  Collins is a finisher.  He stays after the defender through the whistle.  This makes Collins a terror in the running game.  The LSU offense ran the ball a lot in 2014 and Collins was the cog that made it work.

La'El Collins4

Collins was really effective as a blocker in zone blocking plays.  He is consistently able to over power defenders and drive them off the ball.  He creates lanes you can fly a shuttle port through!

In the competitive  SEC West, LSU played a pro style offense.  That leads me to believe hat Collins will be ready to start from game 1 as a rookie.

Hmmmm….let me get this right, good at zone blocking, will probably play inside in the NFL, ready to start as a rookie….I wonder which team can use a guy like that.  Can you think of any?

Garble Garble Garble….Hey are there any tentacles in my teeth?…Garble Garble Garble

NCAA Football: Louisiana State at Mississippi State

These Fish Suckers are delicious!  But sometimes, you need to break them down a bit.  MASH MASH MASH – disposing of the stuff inside that makes them tough to chew.

That’s it!  If Collins was an alien weapon of destruction he would be a Tentacle Disposer! MASH MASH MASH!!!

    Nice job again Piggy! Thank you very much for your efforts!

  2. Rockphin says:

    First?

  3. Rockphin says:

    So today is the first day of off season conditioning workouts for the dolphins. Anyone care to place a bet on who doesn’t show up for “voluntary” conditioning?

  4. Rockphin says:

    Piggy, your offense of line Scout has an uncanny resemblance to my one of my coworkers. By any chance, is he hiding among us posing as an construction estimator?

  5. Rhino says:

    Collins is being brought in for a visit…. good timing on the report, piggy.

    First?
    ———————————————
    I think had our 1st official tie for first according to the times…..

  7. Try Pod says:

    Thanks for the reports, Piggy, Wedge, Chubby Wedge.. Are you sure you are not Home? So many personalities…
    I was listening to a program generated from the Dade/Broward/Palm Beach area over the weekend, and the show host was saying if they (the Dolphins) take another OL with the first pick he would lose his mind or some such, his point being of course that it is not a glamorous pick and also that we have done that many times over the last few years with no better result. I know, I know- each year’s different and the past blahblahblah, but I understand the frustration. I don’t really care ultimately who the pick is, as long is it is a first round, pick 14 or relative position worthy player, but I would like to see us go for a skill position.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I find myself a little frustarted by taking OL int he first again too

      But you can;t get past the ultimate issue of who is the best player available
      And Collins may be the bpa

      You figure if White or Cooper are there or we trade up – the decision is easy
      but between Collins, a defensive player or Strong, Perriman and Parker the decision is tougher

      I can’t say that Collins would not be the BPA

  8. Mike E. says:

    Well done Piggy! La’el should definitely be a major consideration should he be available at #14. I would say if Devante Parker is there as well, it would make it a tough decision. Or, they could go totally in a different direction and take Gurley, or trade back too. Or maybe we’ve already moved up a few spots to get Cooper or White. Lots of options.

  9. Tim Knight says:

    Good stuff Piggy. Collins is definitely an option for us. People who complain about taking OL in the 1st maybe have forgotten we’ve given up the most sacks the last 2 seasons.

  10. Ken says:

    Good stuff PIggy. Collins is my favorite non WR for our pick at no. 14.

  11. Ken says:

    LOL @ the fact that Mark Sanchez can’t seem to get away from Tim Tebow.

  12. Mike E. says:

    Reunited and it feels so good . . .

  13. Ken says:

    Piggy:
    Nothing wrong with going OL in round 1. Look how well it worked for Dallas. It worked well for us to last season with James. I don’t mind going OL in round 1. Still good WRs to be had in round 2 if White, Cooper or Parker don’t fall to us. Those guys are still my top 3 but Collins is no. 4 on my list followed by Scherff.

  14. Mike E. says:

    It comes down to the best player, and which player will help your team the most.

  15. BoulderPhinfan says:

    nice job piggy. I like collins and I hope its our pick at 14. We don’t need a fancy WR. We need to give Tanny time to find receivers. With more time, tanny will make avg WRs great like brady and manning do.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I’m just not convinced there is a right way or a wrong way to do it

      So I’m not against WR or OL for that matter
      I just hope its a quality player

  16. Al in MIA says:

    That highlight reel vs Ark = MEH.
    Saw too much TE covering him to the outside which isn’t 1 on 1 (I like to see 1 on 1 abilities). Saw a couple times where the DE either went straight around him and got hooked with no flag call (NFL refs won’t be so kind) and also where the DE pushed him back off his balance then moved inside to take down the RB at the LOS.

  17. Al in MIA says:

    Btw, what the F are the Eagles doing?
    LOL.
    Chip Kelly is putting together the NFL version of the Expendables LOL ….Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow, LOL…

  18. Al in MIA says:

    Out for now.

  20. Mike E. says:

    I really liked the first one, but after that, it lost my interest.

  21. bookman11 says:

    Schedule to be released tomorrow 7:00pm EDT on NFL Network

  22. bookman11 says:

    Don’t worry Mike. The first game will probably be the Thurday nighter involving the Patriots…..I am sure they will talk about that for an hour before getting to the rest of the schedule.

  23. The Flying Pig says:

    I bet this season Goodell gives us the BYE week in week 2

    THAT JERK!

  24. Tim Knight says:

    It would be cool if Indominus Rex crashed the NFLN set and ate Heath Evans and others while on the air. LOL

  25. olddolphan says:

    SNUCK HOME FOR LUNCH. –HOW are all you fine folks doing?? –Still hoping that one of our first two picks is an O-Linemen – – -and a GOOD ONE!! ALL the Gurley men and the Perrimans will do us NO GOOD if Tanny’s flat on his back as often as he’s been the last two seasons!!! -We need at least TWO MORE QUALITY O-Linemen if we are to be taken seriously as a playoff contender. As this team stands right now, WE ARE NOT a playoff team.
    ————-
    TO ANSWER someone’s question: “What would be my minimum requirement for this season to be considered a success??”
    —–
    ANSWER: At least ONE Playoff victory. Anything less and this becomes another disappointing season. –Be back on the board after dinner.

  26. The Flying Pig says:

    Nobody’s feet are safe from Indominus Rex

    • Tim Knight says:

      That would be funny too if Rex came sliding onto the set like an elephant seal and started assaulting Evan’s feet.

  27. Try Pod says:

    I’m all in on Heath Evans being horrible, but I wanted to check and see if it was just us. Turns out, nearly everyone thinks he hates their team, the exception of course being the Pats, so…

  28. Tim Knight says:

    LOL @ Try

    I mean it doesn’t help that he disses the Dolphins but many times I’ve turned the NFLN off after he’s said something. LOL

  29. Tim Knight says:

    LOL @ Dbolt – would love to see all of that manifest live.

  30. wyoming85 says:

    Adam Beasley ‏@AdamHBeasley · 3h3 hours ago
    For the record, Jordan Cameron and Kenny Stills also reported to voluntary workouts this morning.

  31. dbolt48 says:

    I typically don’t have strong opinions 😬, but if I saw someone stab Heath Evans multiple times I’d most likely not call 911….I’m pretty sure I’d grab a bottle of Soy sauce and start pouring it on his stab wounds.

    • Tim Knight says:

      LMAO @ Dbolt

      News Report: Former NFL football player and NFLN pundit Heath Evans was stabbed multiple times outside of a dildo shop in Pennsylvania. A man was seen walking up the street where Evans was lying, he checked on Evans, walked across the street to a grocery store, came back with a bottle of something and started pouring it on him then walked away. At first we thought it was hydrogen peroxide but later realized it was soy sauce. Police have not been able to identify the man.

  32. wyoming85 says:

    Is that Mike E stalking in the background?

  33. dbolt48 says:

    Holy shit, it’ll be interesting to see what Tripp is weighing. His photo looks like he did a big transformation.

    • Tim Knight says:

      He’s been lifting for sure. You knew he would do whatever it takes to try and get better.

      • dbolt48 says:

        Yeah…he has really good instincts & it will be interesting to see if the team is looking at him for the MLB job. Looked much more natural at it versus everyone else on the team in the PS, but wasn’t strong enough especially after his injury.

    @nashmax73 god he has said some stupid shit

  36. Tim Knight says:

    Dbolt, Tripp was getting a lot of reps at MLB in the PS when Trusnik was banged up and he looked pretty good. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s 250.

  37. getterdone says:

    La’el reminds me physically like our Brandon Albert who played LG @ Virginia for awhile.
    Collins could maybe play LG in Miami until Albert moves on, then kick over to LT as Brandon did with the Chiefs.. He’ll be learning from one of the best.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      That’s very possible

      But it may be 4-5 years before Albert is done
      So I prefer to think of it as drafting an OG

  38. getterdone says:

    Mark Asper arriving to Offseason program
    …yeah, he gets paid vet minimum.

  39. Mike E. says:

    Tannehill looks a lot thicker too. Looks a little like Brett Favre.

  40. The Flying Pig says:

    Did Omar really say Freeman is superior to Tannehill?

    I remember the whole Garrard thing
    but at that time Tanny was a vet so it was sort of justifiable in terms of experience

    • Tim Knight says:

      You should delete this entire post. LOL

      • The Flying Pig says:

        I think a lot of us didn;t expect Tanny to start right away

        That wasn’t just Omar
        He just sort of went overboard with the Garrard love
        and has gone way overboard with the Tanny criticism

        but saying Freeman is superior is a new low IMO

  41. Tim Knight says:

    Piggy, I was referring to you saying “but at that time Tanny was a vet so it was sort of justifiable in terms of experience”.

  42. Tim Knight says:

    Rick Perry was asked if he ever smoked pot and his answer was “No, thank God!”

    However he has done this sort of thing.

    • jetsssuck says:

      I heard some of his campaign ideas for the republicans this coming election. Sounded pretty reasonable and doable. XL pipeline, lower corporate taxes and agreement with mexico to explore the known oil reserves for mexico,canada and US. He said we would be oil independent then. Those three countries would be able to produce more than Saudia Arabia and russia combined.

  44. Rockphin says:

    so has has Arthur Lynch showed up for workouts?

  45. Mike E. says:

    LOL @ D-Bolt. I kinda figured someone would jump on that. Tanny looks like he put on some muscle, and maybe some weight too.

    Update: Ndamukong Suh reports for first day of Dolphins’ voluntary workouts; Dion Jordan does not http://www.miamiherald.com/sports/nfl/miami-dolphins/article19035837.html

    • getterdone says:

      Dolphins DE/OLB Dion Jordan was a no-show for the start of Miami’s offseason program.
      The reasons for Jordan’s absence weren’t immediately clear. The third overall pick in the 2013 draft, Jordan has been a bust through his first two NFL seasons, and has yet to nail down a primary position in the Dolphins’ defense.

    • getterdone says:

      That came to mind to me as well.

      • Tim Knight says:

        If that’s not the reason I don’t see why he’s not here except for some obvious stuff – death in the family or he’s in the hospital or something like that.

    Reply

    I wouldn’t be so sure. He’ll be 31 Nov. 4th (be sure to vote for him) 😉
    Plus he’s making close to $10M per, so if he gets hurt again for more than a few games, I can see Miami cutting ties. Need to be ready for when that day comes if possible.

  49. getterdone says:

    Ironically the Braided Coconut feels the same way….lol

  50. BoulderPhinfan says:

    wow, losing jordan after giving up 2 picks for him will be a hard pill to swallow. Lets just see what we get back in return for him.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Jordan wasn’t this GM’s pick and we’ve already seen the cleansing of the 2013 FAs.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Probably a trade up

      Its just specualtion
      no reason to take it seriously yet

      Personally I would like to see Jordan play DE all season with Suh on the line to see what happens

    ————————–
    Im with GDP, i dont think that happens. That dude MAY have a couple years left. Im hoping so for our sake, but he wont last 5. In fact im pretty nervous about him making it the whole year this year. He has already had several knee issues, and with injuries like that you just become more susceptible to future ones. We do need a guy who is going to be ready to move into that spot soon. Dont know that it means we have to go OT in first, but we definitely need plan B ready.

  53. Mike E. says:

    I said the other day the only way I’d want to trade up is by trading a player (Dion Jordan), maybe that’s the case. If he doesn’t show up, it makes sense to me.

    • Brian in NY says:

      I wonder if the Giants, Atlanta or NO would take him. Maybe throw in a 3rd next year, or a 2nd this year.

      • Mike E. says:

        The G-Men are legitimate trade partners. They could definitely use a guy like Jordan, but you’re right, we’d have to sweeten it with another pick. Not sure how much more they would want.

  54. getterdone says:

    The Finsiders @TheFinsiders
    Tannehill tells @GregLikens that he’s been throwing with his receivers twice a week for a month now.

    Brian, looks like Albert played a full season in 2011 & has missed 18 games over his career.

  56. Mike E. says:

    Bri

    I think Chicago could use a guy like Jordan too, but they may have a good one sitting there for them at 7.

  57. D says:

    I dunno what id feel about the idea of a Jordan trade.

    On one hand i can see the value in it, trading him, as he has yet to produce for us and time is running out on his rookie contract. On second hand i almost would hate to let him go and then have him blow up elsewhere.

    You have to think about it this way though, He is the last of the Ireland “maverick” decisions during draft. Our regime has cut ties with a lot of other mistakes he made and might be in a position to see what getting back a pick for that mistake would yield them in getting to use it to make a pick they actually want.

    I dont at all think about the “oh we gave up 2 picks to get him” thing, as we gave up what we gave up, thats gone and we arent getting it back. The idea of getting something like a 2nd round pick, which we might be able to package together to move up or even just get two quality players out of the second, though is appealing and might actually be best for the team.

    • Mike E. says:

      What we gave up for him is meaningless now. I think going forward for us is, does he have value on our team, and is there a place where he really helps us? If the answer is not really, it makes sense to get some value back for him, because some other team that isn’t loaded with DE’s like we are ,might need him more than we do, and might be willing to give up something for him.

  58. getterdone says:

    D, I feel conflicted too on Jordan. He could blow up with OL’s trying to stop Suh & Co.

    • D says:

      He’s got the potential for sure, but there are a lot of guy who come with tons of potential than never get off the ground. We have already lots a lot of valuable time with him and now are down to last couple of years to get anything good out of him. Its gotta happen this year or he’s a bust.

  59. steveccnv says:

    I like how you guys take a speculation and run with it. Rosanne Rosannadanna would be proud 😉

    • D says:

      I think of it as a theory, im not running with it im investigating its merit. I have no clue what they will do, but its just as likely they have plans to do it as they dont, so it just playing around with possibilities after that.

  60. Mike E. says:

    He might blow up, but do any of you honestly feel like he’s going to blow up here? I don’t, I just don’t.

  61. D says:

    Atlanta and Chicago are prime for one of the studs of this draft who have more promise than i can see in Jordan. I dont think they would make the trade. Id take it if they did, but i cant see it from the “whats in it for them” perspective. Giants is a more legit chance, but even then its chancey for them to drop back to 14 and possibly lose out on the last of the top guys in Dupree or Beasley. I dont know if Jordan holds any really strong value over any of those guys. He hasnt really shown enough to make people feel better about taking him over one of those guys who will have 4 years of rookie contract to his one year left. I dont see him yielding a 1st rounder, maybe a 2nd.

    • D says:

      Guess what im saying is i dont think Jordan has shown anything to make him 1st round trade bait. Maybe with the Eagles….packaged with our second for their first… I dunno. I dont see any of the guys picking above us making that deal.

  62. BoulderPhinfan says:

    we gave up a 1st and a 2nd for jordan. We swap picks with one of the teams picking in the top 10. I doubt we have to give up anymore picks.

    • D says:

      What we gave up for him is irrelevant to his value right now. Jordan and swapping picks isnt going to be good enough. top 10 guys without trading can get a better prospect. They dont need to trade for a guy who so far hasnt shown anything. Trading back to 14 and getting Jordan just doesnt make sense. G-Men, maybe but i think its a very remote maybe. I also think moving up to 9 isnt really going to get us Cooper or White, it probably secures Parker though.

  63. BoulderPhinfan says:

    I personally wouldn’t trade jordan just to move up.

  64. getterdone says:

    Steve, agreed…all this talk on Jordan….yet no one replied to Tanny saying he’s been throwing with his receivers twice a week for over a month now. 🙄

  65. D says:

    One positive note from this year. This is the first year since i started tracking our visits that we have pretty much exceeded all other teams in number of private workout invites. We may not have the most, but we certainly are one of the top teams this year. Thats WAY up from previous years.

  66. Tim Knight says:

    Boulder, what are Jordan’s talents that are so baffling to Coyle? He’s been used in multiple ways and flashes here and there but no consistency. He’s been used standing up, hand in the ground, dropping in coverage, lined up in the middle in nickel/dime blitz packages, even at DT on passing downs a few times. When is it on Jordan to start making plays? Other players seem to develop here but Jordan is the great mystery. I think it’s time to look at Jordan. If he’s better suited to be a 3-4 OLB then he doesn’t fit here because you don’t change your scheme for one player.

    • getterdone says:

      I think a lot also has to do with Philbin not happy with him after that back to back suspension. He’s in Joe’s doghouse. Besides, he’s been constantly thought of here as a DE by the coaches. So it’s been hard to see the field on Defense.

  67. Tim Knight says:

    Mike E is right, what we used to get Jordan in 2013 is irrelevant now. The new FO didn’t bring him here. That’s one of the reasons I don’t like making changes every few years with regimes, they turn over previous investments because it’s not their guys.

    • getterdone says:

      It’s not their guys…but I’m ok with that turnover if it’s the guys that aren’t producing, which is usually indicative for the reason of regime change in the first place. 😉

    WAZZUP People.. Any Hockey fans in Da House, check into the Jets vs Ducks game in the first period or pregame if available.. 19 Years since we have had a Home Playoff game in town.. Place Will Be Rockin !!!! Go Jets Go !!!

      Nice! My Islanders jumped out to a 2-1 lead in the series yesterday!

        Should be crazy…

      • Brian in NY says:

        Geez. Good Luck!

  69. Tim Knight says:

    GD, it’s not like Jordan doesn’t play. The issue is he doesn’t do much when he’s out there. We’re still waiting for the light to go on. It’s not rocket science how to use a guy who’s 6-6 270 and runs in the 4.5s. He should be chasing plays in the backfield off the edge. He hasn’t flashed enough doing that. He’s also had his own setbacks with his shoulder injury as a rookie and a suspension last year. Hard to get going when you’re not available a lot of the time either.

  70. Brian in NY says:

    If we do want to move Jordan, this will be the last year we have a chance to get anything decent for him.

  71. manitobafinfan says:

    I Would prefer the Lights Go On , and he becomes what we thought he would be when we moved up..

    About Dion Jordan:
    You just wonder what is going through a guy’s head when shit like this happens.
    Is he just lazy? disorganized? precious and privileged? Stupid?
    It’s baffling.

  74. The Flying Pig says:

    If you want a draft prospect with great practice habits
    His name is Jaelen Strong

  75. The Flying Pig says:

    Here is a scouting report in Byron Jones

    Wedge didn’t scout this guy
    But he looks good

  77. The Flying Pig says:

    Who is ready for some Pokey tomorrow

    Don’t worry it’s not more on dolphins drafts busts

    It’s all time NFL draft busts

    Pokey forever!

  78. Tim Knight says:

    Brian, I think Jordan looked better as a rookie. He didn’t make any jump last year.

  79. Brian in NY says:

    Think about this for a moment: At this time, we have more confidence in Fede and Shelby than we do for Jordan…

  80. Brian in NY says:

    GDP,

    One of the reasons why he is lacking meaningful snaps if because he hasn’t deserved those snaps. He’s had rare flashes, but his production (or lack thereof) doesn’t even come close to that of a #3 pick, which is how he should be judged.

  81. getterdone says:

    Piggy, that was awful seeing that poor lady get a line drive foul ball in the head. How could that happen sitting in the backstop behind homeplate? SMH!!!

    I bet she has serious longterm injury/damage if she even lived through that. Sad!

  82. Brian in NY says:

    Okay, I’m getting too worked up over Jordan again. I’m going to go watch Game of Thrones from last night. Goodnight all!

  83. Mike E. says:

    Naples

    I think we’re all hoping Dion Jordan Jordan was told not to attend, or that he has a good excuse. If he was told not to attend, that could mean he’s going to be traded. That’s totally speculation though.

  84. Brian in NY says:

    One more thing: Rock, I bet you never expected to owe me a beer at 5:31 AM!

  85. getterdone says:

    Peace Brian.

  86. Mike E. says:

    Goodnight Bri! I haven’t watched it yet either.

    WTG Ryan Tannehill

    The Finsiders @TheFinsiders
    Tannehill tells @GregLikens that he’s been throwing with his receivers twice a week for a month now.

  88. getterdone says:

    Whoa, just saw this. Now my brain is reading the tea leaves on seeing the Phins & Eagles having something in the works with us dealing them Dion Jordan & them dealing Kendricks to us, could be a trade down in there working the deal too for draft day.

    Btw, We’d still get a MLB named Kendricks, just not on draft day 2015…lol

    Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks was a no-show for the first day of voluntary offseason workouts Monday.
    While these workouts are “voluntary” in nature, players are expected to attend. Kendricks has been the subject of trade rumors in recent weeks after the Eagles extended DeMeco Ryans’ contract and acquired Kiko Alonso from the Bills in exchange for LeSean McCoy. Kendricks is entering the final year of his rookie deal and may be holding out in the hopes of a trade or long-term contract.

    • Mike E. says:

      Interesting. That’s as good a theory as any. Definitely makes sense.

      • getterdone says:

        Thanks….it just hit me like that the second I read it, especially since we’ve been speculating on Jordan, plus the known rumor that Chip Kelly wanted him last year. Now the time is more ripe. 😉

      • Mike E. says:

        Evan Mathis also is a no show. Two-fer, Kendricks and Matthews for Jordan

  89. Mike E. says:

    Piggy

    That’s exactly what I was thinking. There’s either a net, or glass, but obviously, it’s unbreakable glass, like they have at hockey arenas.

  90. The Flying Pig says:

    Then we can draft the other Kendricks and have a Kendricks brothers duo!
    Weeeeeee

  91. getterdone says:

    Kendricks just makes sooo much sense for what we’re tring to do on defense….IMO.

    Here’s video of Mychal’s 4.41 40 @ NFL Combine couple years back. Listen to commentary on how the use of ILB’s has changed in the NFL. We see more of it today 3 years later.

    Mike, Piggy, GDP, etc. good to yap again with you guys! –Me and Mrs. OD had a great time in rural Tennessee with some of our Grandkids & Great Grandkids. -The new edition is full of sass and energy, just like her Great Grandpa!! –What a thrill!!! We only wished we lived closer to them.
    ———-
    Speaking of “hockey arenas,” my thoughts tonight are with our buddy Manitoba. His Winnipeg Jets are leading the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim 1-0 late in the first period of round one of the playoffs. It’s absolutely a MUST WIN for the Jets as the Ducks lead the series 2-0. –Those folks in Winnipeg are going absolutely NUTS!! – – Kinda reminds me of the Bears-Dolphins famous Monday Night game in ’85, still the loudest crowd I’ve ever experienced at a sporting event!

  93. wyoming85 says:

    In honor of the man of the hour!

    Your Picks:
    Round 1 Pick 14: La’el Collins, OT/OG, LSU (A)
    Round 2 Pick 15: Stephone Anthony, ILB, Clemson (B)
    Round 4 Pick 15: Adrian Amos, FS, Penn State (B)
    Round 5 Pick 13: Darren Waller, WR/TE, Georgia Tech (B+)
    Round 5 Pick 14: Tyler Varga, FB, Yale (A)
    Round 6 Pick 15: Ty Montgomery, WR, Stanford (A)

    • getterdone says:

      Nice draft that would cover all our sins in Miami!

      • olddolphan says:

        PLUG in FAU’s D’Joun Smith instead of Amos in the 4th round. –Smith likely will be gone by then BUT if he’s still available I’d take him in round 4 in a heart beat!!

  94. olddolphan says:

    WELL IT’s time to walk the dogs and hit the sack. Mrs. OD hit the bed around 9 in an effort to knockout this damn flu we’ve both had for 2 weeks. I’m actually starting to feel a bit better tonight, so I hope a good 8 hour sleep will put me on the good side of this tomorrow. –YOU FOLKS have a terrific evening and a better tomorrow. The Old Dolfan is out for tonight.

      OD.. Thanx for the Props…Team played their gutz out, hit everything that moved, but just didn’t have enough.. there was over 100 body checks in tonight’s game.. 99 in regulation..as gut wrenching a loss as the Green Bay game last year.. 15021 people and we hit 127 db .. Seahawk stadium holds the record at 135 db.. that took approx 65-70000 people.. i don’t think they can make the comeback.. but i will cheer to the last whistle…

      Re Dion : Sorry i came in the middle and missed the fact that he was a no show ( for whatever reason) did not read the page far nuff up to see what had preceded my Hope the Light go on comment.. As some stated , if the team thinks of him as a DE, and feel we are deep enough at that position, then hell yeah if we can turn him into either a move up or more picks lets go for it.. If he is still on OUR team in TC, i hope he kicks ass.. Have a great Tuesday Y’all !! EH.
