    Ajayi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. The Flying Pig says:

  5. jahndoh says:

    Fun to have another WC product to root for. I’ll get the inside scoop from my friend with OR coaching connections tonight when we watch the Pacquiou/Mayweather fight.

  6. wyoming85 says:

    Now get me Smith!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. The Flying Pig says:

    Miller has some competition

    And competitions is good

  8. naplesfan2010 says:

    I called this one above. Ajayi … is he hurt so bad he will miss all of 2015?

  9. steveccnv says:

    Lol, did we just timeout with back to back picks πŸ˜›

  10. The Flying Pig says:

  11. The Flying Pig says:

    Funny they had a bc announce McCain and a rb announce ajayi

  12. jahndoh says:

    Wow, check out the analytics program. Ajayi is combine TOP PERFORMER in the Vert, the Broad Jump and both the 20 and 60 yard shuttles.

  13. The Flying Pig says:

    There is our S

    I know nothing about him

    Anyone?

  14. jahndoh says:

    CBS praising our draft right now…almost gushing.

  15. naplesfan2010 says:

    Ajayi = Highly productive career, including a record-breaking junior season in 2014, becoming the first player in FBS history to rush for 1,800-plus yards and collect 500-plus receiving yards.

  16. steveccnv says:

    What did Ced say?

  17. jahndoh says:

    I’m down with Smith Wyo!!!

  18. Tim Knight says:

    Nice pick! Some medical knee concerns but as a 5th rd pick he’s a steal. He looks like Marshawn Lynch to me.

  19. wyoming85 says:

    That is a head scratcher!

    But hey they must think he has better upside than the rest on the board!

  20. Tim Knight says:

    Okay I said OL, RB, LB and DB in the 5th. RB and DB are check! πŸ˜‰

  21. naplesfan2010 says:

    That safety sis 21 lifts AND ran a 4.46 40.

  22. phindog says:

    I’m digging our picks so far..

  23. The Flying Pig says:

  24. The Flying Pig says:

    I don’t think I’m getting my LB
    😦

    I would rather have Nick Oleary than a Lb

  25. jahndoh says:

    Ced Thomas didn’t compete at the combine, but check this out, he’d have been a combine TOP performer (based on his pro day results) in the Vert, Broad, the Short Shuttle and 3-cone!

  26. wyoming85 says:

    Cedric Thompson Minnesota

    Pro Day Results

    40-yard dash: 4.5 and 4.48 seconds
    Vertical jump: 40 1/2 inches
    Broad jump: 10 feet, 2 inches
    Short shuttle: 4.28 seconds
    3-cone: 6.96 seconds
    Bench: 21 reps of 225 pounds

    • jahndoh says:

      Impressive numbers. I know little about him, so I’m gonna reserve judgement. He’s my least fav of the 3 picks so far in the round, but he’s got measurables for sure.

    • D says:

      That’s respectable numbers. I wiukda loved prewitt but such is life lol.

  27. D says:

    Ajayi I’m not loving. Multiple time they have said he may not even make it through his rookie contract

  28. jahndoh says:

    Hey Tim, Ajayi is a much better receiver than Lynch

  29. naplesfan2010 says:

    Ajayi is a bona fide steal. That is the definition of “steal” right there.

  30. wyoming85 says:

    We could get BJ Finney for OD
    Big Center that can play OG

  31. The Flying Pig says:

    A stefon Diggs to the Vikings is a wake up call to Patterson
    He does all the same things

  32. Tim Knight says:

    Okay there’s some safety competition. So I won’t get my 4-fector with two DBs but that’s okay. LOL

  33. D says:

    Harrison gone

  34. naplesfan2010 says:

    Cedric the Safety:
    He has terrific athleticism to open his hips and run with backs and tight ends, covering a lot of ground vs. both the run and the pass. Thompson has adequate route recognition in the deep half of the field, but tends to be more reactive than proactive with marginal instincts and ballskills, taking too many late and false steps. He has adequate length to get physical with bigger targets, although he needs to do the same with smaller receivers before they can put the moves on him. Thompson strings out plays and closes the gap on the perimeter, leading with his face and driving his hips on tackle attempts, which should serve him well on special teams.

  35. naplesfan2010 says:

    CBS: “Ajayi is a big, strong back with great hands and great burst, and he excels in pass protection.”

    • D says:

      But he may be a pivot away from retirement.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Even if he only has a 3-5 year career due to his knee, he’ll give us everything he has when we’re trying to win super bowls during that time. πŸ™‚

  36. The Flying Pig says:

    Son

    Who is magicked…lol

  37. The Flying Pig says:

    Ajayi does everything well
    That is the book on him

  38. Mike E. says:

    Excited about Ajayi, but heard he has a knee issue. May not be ready to play at the start of the season

  39. New Age says:

    Have to say that Jets got a pretty good steal as well. Dont like that new GM at all or that coach, lol

  40. wyoming85 says:

    Maybe we get a second safety?

    I always thought we needed one!

  41. The Flying Pig says:

    That bills fan looks like she cries every night before she goes to bed

  42. The Flying Pig says:

    A WR???

  43. D says:

    Ooooooh lippett

  44. Rhino says:

    CBS sports JUST flashed Lippett, then it went away, as phins pick (?)

  45. jahndoh says:

    D, you’re applying 2nd round logic to a 5th round pick. Ajayi was right up there with the most carries in the nation last year, and one of the most productive backs in the nation. Missed no plays, no games, and no practices. The injury happened in 2011 and he hasn’t missed a beat. If they think his knee is degenerative than that’s why he dropped to the 5th. He’s WELL worth a 5th. If you get 2 years of decent production out of him at this point you’ve won big time.

    • D says:

      Probably right. I’ll admit I want all picks to pan out and be with us. I hate to see players we draft leave and having the idea he will be gone in just a few years just sucks. But treating it as a commodity its good value

  46. wyoming85 says:

    That’s my Boy there!!!!!!!!!!!

  47. The Flying Pig says:

    Too bad

    No LB and no TE

    But solid picks nonetheless

  48. phindog says:

    Lippett..

  49. Rhino says:

    wow, I guess they have their board and they are gonna BPA it the entire day

  50. naplesfan2010 says:

    another WR … not named Waller … I think Lippett is a waste of a pick insofar as he has so little chance to make the team and his size is a clone of our round 1 pick so what is the point?

  51. Mike E. says:

    Did you guys see CB Bobby McCain’s 20 YD shuttle? 3.82!!! That’s outrageous!

    • jahndoh says:

      We have like 7 combine bests with our first 2 picks of the round, and the Safety didn’t go to the combine, but he’d have had 4 more with his proday numbers!

  52. jahndoh says:

    Mike,

    He’s not currently injured. (that I know of) The concern stems from a major injury in 2011, and he proved last season that he recovered well enough to be one of the most productive RBs in the country. I don’t know where missing time is a concern, I think it’s more like Abdul Jabar..where long term degeneration is the concern.

    • Mike E. says:

      Gil Brandt said he got hurt by his medical report, that he has an issue with his knee, and then Pat Kirwan said, “If the Dolphins can’t shelve him for a few months, he could turn out to be a great pick for the Dolphins, that he may have to miss some of the season. That’s why he’s available in the 5th, and not taken in the 2nd or 3rd.

  53. wyoming85 says:

    Well there is always a chance Varga goes UDFA? 😦

    I know Tim is heartbroken! πŸ˜‰

  54. Tim Knight says:

    Wow I like Lippett, just saw a thing on him the other day. I didn’t see another WR coming but hey I didn’t see a lot coming in this draft with a lot of teams. Another possession jump ball and red zone guy. See a theme here?

  55. New Age says:

    The 5th round feels like the 1st did. A complete win even if we pull a Jordan Phillips at the end. πŸ˜‰

  56. naplesfan2010 says:

    Lippett had 85% of his catches (55-of-65) in 2014 producing either a touchdown or first down …
    WOW

  57. rgs322 says:

    OK, time to start looking at the 2016 draft. lol.

  58. Rhino says:

    Reading up on Lippett… started 5 games at CB and two more games at CB the next year. While he is ‘versatile’ he certainly makes up for it in slowness and softness. LOL

  59. The Flying Pig says:

    Totally forgot
    Lippet is projected as a DB

    3 DBs in the 5th and a RB

    Crazy

  60. naplesfan2010 says:

    Lippett =
    Good height and length for the position with large, soft hands…plucks and uses his full extension to expand his catching radius, utilizing every inch of his frame to attack the ball…tracks very well with an excellent feel on back shoulder throws…makes natural adjustments on the ball, staying focused in contested situations to finish…terrific blend of patience and aggressiveness in his routes, using his field awareness to find vulnerable spots in zones…catches the ball well in stride without losing momentum…strong plant foot out of his breaks and works well along the sideline.

  61. New Age says:

    As Tim has mentioned several times, the brass didn’t really like the LB group in this draft. And after the past couple years, they know what average looks like.

  62. Rhino says:

    just curious… how are we going to camp with only 6 LBs on the roster??

    • Rhino says:

      New Age… thanks for LB comment cuz I was just wondering that….

      No need to take “average” I guess …. We may be hoping for camp cuts or even a TRADE …

    • Tim Knight says:

      We have 7 and in a 4-3 you only start 3 and 2 in nickel much of the time. I guess we’ll add 2-3 as UDFAs to compete in camp. Maybe a June cut guy as well.

  63. Rockphin says:

    BURN IT DOWN!!! BURN IT ALL DOWN. FIRE THEM ALL!!

    HOW DARE THEY!!????

    FUCK THIS TEAM. I’M DONE.

  64. naplesfan2010 says:

    I stand corrected on Lipppettt. He has a great write-up on CBS. Hickey does do some awesome homework. This guy is a perfect new millennium West Coast offense type WR.

  65. wyoming85 says:

    I liked that!!!!!!!!!!!

    Lets get 5 picks in the 4th next year! πŸ™‚

  66. naplesfan2010 says:

    “Lippett is very Physical after the catch with a strong stiff-arm…experienced on defense with nine career pass break-ups at cornerback (seven starts)…impressive toughness, both physical and mental, and considered a 110-percenter by the MSU coaching staff”

  67. olddolphan says:

    WELL, PIGGY, MIAMI DID NOT draft 2 O-Linemen in this draft, so you and I have nothing to bet on. –Let me go ON THE RECORD as saying we do NOT, as of now, have a better Offensive Line than we had at the end of last season. –And that O-Line SUCKED!!
    ————
    The return from injury by Brandon Albert gives us hope that Miami’s O-Line might be nearly as good as it was at the start of last season. But Albert is NOT YET READY to play football. –Whether or not he’ll return to his old dominating self is a question we don’t yet have an answer for. –Perhaps Hickey can work some magic with guys who were not drafted or guys cut by other teams during the summer. I sure hope he can do this.
    ———–
    Anyone else bothered by the fact NO linebackers were taken by the Dolphins?

    • Tim Knight says:

      Nope on your last sentence. It was a mediocre class.

    • jahndoh says:

      Alberts return most certainly means our OL is better than last years’ he missed the entire 2nd half of the season. Unless Thomas and Turner actually got WORSE, and Pouncey is actually WORSE at center than he was at guard, it’s impossible to conclude the OL is not better than last years finishing group.

      • olddolphan says:

        IMPOSSIBLE?? I hope you are right. It IS POSSIBLE Albert will return and play AT A LOWER LEVEL then he played last year. It’s also possible he WON’T BE READY FOR WEEK #1. NOT sold on either Thomas or Turner YET. SO-O-O we’re left with Pouncey, James and a bunch of question marks.

  68. Rockphin says:

    So, i’ve been out who did we pick?

  69. phindog says:

    So when Mr. Lippett scores they can blast out over the PA system. FHRRAAUMM !!!

  70. Rockphin says:

    No Tyler Fucking Varga huh? pfft dumb asses

  71. naplesfan2010 says:

    Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio had this to say about his versatile pass-catcher. “I heard one scout say [Lippett] has hawk awareness. He can pick the ball up at the blink of an eye and determine where it’s going and pick it. I really think today opened a lot of people’s eyes.”

  72. jahndoh says:

    Mike,
    I don’t know Pat’s rational but Gil didn’t say anything about when the injury was. Google him. I’m pretty sure he’s not currently injured beyond the degenerative concerns about his knee stemming form the 2011 injury. He started every single game this year, so if he’s injured are you thinking it happened after the season? I think this is just classic 5th round stuff where Pat is referring to notes and probably doesn’t realize the injury concern is based on an old injury.

    “β€œIt definitely caught me by surprise,” Ajayi said Tuesday, referring to a flurry of reports about the knee leading up to the draft. β€œAt the same time, I knew I had an injury in 2011 and I knew that it would probably be something teams would look at just because it’s something, if you have an injury, at the (NFL Scouting Combine) you have to get it checked out. I knew it was a possibility that a team would ask me about my knee. I was just surprised at how big it really got.

    β€œI can’t control that and I can’t control what teams think. I can only control what I can do. I know how my knee feels. I know it feels healthy.”

    Ajayi finished second in the nation in 2014 with 2,358 yards from scrimmage, first with 397 touches and tied for first with 32 touchdowns. He was the first player in FBS history with at least 1,800 rushing yards and at least 500 receiving yards in a season.

    He also carried a heavy workload in 2013.

    • jahndoh says:

      I will volunteer I love and respect both those guys, but I have nothing to do but to google Fins picks and they have to offer “analysis” for every teams pick and we’re 160 deep into the draft.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Wow! Steal right here.

  73. D says:

    Maybe they aren’t overly confidant in Davis or Taylor 2 cbs

  74. Rhino says:

    I must say… I enjoyed this draft more than most recent years. If anything… four picks so close to each other was FUN. πŸ™‚ Once camp starts, they may THEN decide if OL is indeed a need and start looking for a possible trade…. Maybe Matt Moore is gonna be “trade bait” to a QB hungry team like Texans… for a solid veteran guard or linebacker…..

    • D says:

      I liked it too. Players this year were all more average than standouts so makes sense to reflect that with where the majority of you picks lay

  75. BoulderPhinfan says:

    Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
    And Dolphins announce Lippett will be DB for them, not WR>

  76. Randy says:

    They could use Ajayi as a third down back in spot duty to keep the wear and tear low in his first year.

  77. BoulderPhinfan says:

    Adam Beasley @AdamHBeasley
    Schefter saying Ajayi flunked some teams’ physicals. He might only be a one-contract player, but that would be OK for a fifth-round pick.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      Adam Beasley @AdamHBeasley
      Stokes on Ajayi’s knee: “Not an issue for us.”

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      Adam Beasley @AdamHBeasley
      Stokes calls Ajayi being there in fifth “an unexpected” surprise.

    • jahndoh says:

      Led the country in carries this season, so longevity might be an issue, but he can clearly currently play at a high level.

      • Rhino says:

        with Boise ST schedule maybe 1/3 of his carries were touchdowns where the defense didn’t even touch him. πŸ™‚ jk

    • D says:

      Again what Hahn said was right, for it being a 5th I’m not going to lose sleep over it I just love our picks and hope for all to have long careers with it so I justcgate thinking I’ll only be able to enjoy them for a small time. It was personal and this is business an it was a smart business move

  78. Rhino says:

    Ajayi’s injury was 2011 !!!! He was killer the last two years. If he is so freaking brittle, how did he have over 2,300 all purpose yard ?!?! 5th round pick for that kind of production all damn day, baby.

  79. Tim Knight says:

    Is it okay to like this draft or will that be viewed as just being a homer? I just want to know what I’m getting myself into. LOL

  80. BoulderPhinfan says:

    Omar Kelly @OmarKelly Β· 4m 4 minutes ago
    “He’s going to be great for Ryan [Tannehill] and our offense as a whole,” Eric Stokes said of Jay Ajayi.

  81. Randy says:

    Wyoming,
    Yep, and he can catch the ball. Possible high reward on a low risk pick in the 5th. The rest of the picks in that round look like special teamers…and they took a flier on Ajayi.

  82. Mike E. says:

    If it’s just a matter of a short, but very productive career (4-5 years), I’ll sign up for that ASAP! He’s a very talented RB

  83. BoulderPhinfan says:

    Adam Beasley @AdamHBeasley
    Hickey: “We do like our linebackers. … We stuck to our board and took the best player available.”

  84. Tim Knight says:

    Okay so Lippett is a corner. Interesting. I think I mixed him up with a WR I saw on NFLN with Mariccui and Irvin doing WR drills. It wasn’t him. Someone mentioned Lippett the other day and I asked if he was the son of Ronnie Lippett. Yeah that’s the ticket. LOL

    So we added 3 DBs out of 4 in the 5th. Go Piggy!!! LOL

  85. Mike E. says:

    Sources Tell Us “Of all the backs in this draft, Ajayi might be my favorite because he can do everything you want from a back and you don’t have to find a complementary back to pick up the slack for him in any one area.” — AFC scout in charge of grading running backs “I like every single thing about him except that he doesn’t show the instincts you are looking for. If you don’t have instincts you will always be limited.” – NFC running back coach

  86. BoulderPhinfan says:

    NFL Media’s Mike Mayock said several teams told him they took Ajayi off their board due to the knee, which was characterized as bone rubbing on bone.

    “One team will say, ‘He’s off the board because he’s bone on bone,'” Mayock said. “Other teams say, ‘That’s fine. We’ll get one contract out of him.’ “

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      The Dolphins have been looking for someone to take some of the work off Miller’s shoulders. Expect Ajayi to earn that role quickly as a rookie.

      Even if the running back’s knee doesn’t allow him to get to a second contract, in the fifth round Miami nabbed a player with the talent to compete and contribute at the pro level from Day 1.

  87. D says:

    Wtf is up with Michael Bennett dropping so far

  88. Mike E. says:

    Randy

    If you’re still around, what do you say about Cedric Thompson?

  89. Randy says:

    Stokes is just doing the typical positive spin on picks. The Dolphins DID pass on Ajayi many times…just like every team. Even just in the 5th….he was their third choice. They were obviously concerned like every other team. If he pans out great…if he doesn’t…it was a 5th round pick. Acceptable risk for what you MIGHT get.

  90. olddolphan says:

    JAHNDOH: Reply for you below your 2:57 Post. –Enjoy!!

  91. Rockphin says:

    Tim you are such a fucking homer. LOL

  92. jahndoh says:

    I just rationalized my way through the OL. I think it’s lightyears better already than it was at the end of last season. How?

    LT: Albert>James
    LG: Douglas or Turner or Thomas the winner is def at least = Colledge
    C: Pouncey much > Satele
    RG: Turner/Fox/Douglas/Thomas winner is likely at least = Pouncey (as a guard)
    RT: James much > Thomas.

    We’re vastly improved at 3 positions, and likely at least equal, but possibly improved in the other two positions. Benton 2nd year with many of these guys> Benton 1st year with many of these guys.

  93. finfanrob says:

    i think with their next pick the fins should select melissa stark

  94. Randy says:

    MikeE,
    I can’t say I’m a big fan of Thompson. I can’t see him being a big contributor. But, our safety situation is so shallow. Because of that…he might make the roster…you never know. As athletic as he is, he’s a little slow on the uptake. He doesn’t seem to recognize what’s going on very well.

  95. D says:

    Jahn I also replied to you above and then summarized again in a reply to someone else later though I did call you Hahn.

  96. Tim Knight says:

    I find it hard to believe that a RB with no instincts can be so productive. LOL

    • jahndoh says:

      Yeah, I found that comment to be silly. The other scouting reports I saw and his production say the exact opposite.

      • Tim Knight says:

        It’s a crazy time of year. Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one. LOL

  97. The Flying Pig says:

    Who is sick of seeing Joran Phillips and ready for a new blog on our Day 3 picks?

  98. New Age says:

    Ajayji really solidified this draft for me. A top 3 WR and a top 5 RB for our offense and a big fatty to help stop the run. The rest are competition but solid players all around. Not bad Mr Silver Fox. Not bad.

  99. D says:

    No one knows wtf happened to Michael Bennett to make him fall so far?

  100. Randy says:

    Tim,
    The problem is if you have a “bone on bone” situation…as everyone seems to keep saying….it will only get worse. It won’t get better. But, like I said, I’m fine with the pick. Low risk and potential high reward. So what if the kid won’t be able to walk by the time he’s 28 as long as we get a few good years out of him, right? Lol

    • D says:

      Yeah we m also kinda feeling that last statement too I hate that for him but its his decision when to retire

    • jahndoh says:

      That comment tugs at my heartstrings, but I’m compelled to point out the kid WANTS to play football, he’s not being forced, so I don’t feel too guilty. lol…

    • Tim Knight says:

      Curtis Martin played at a high level on the same thing at the end of his career until he couldn’t anymore. It’s not my call, it’s Jay Ajayi’s desire to play. πŸ˜‰

  101. D says:

    Damn you were right derron smith still out there too and ifoooo wtf. Damn piggy you still got a shot for a favorite to go undrafted

  102. jahndoh says:

    As a long time A’s fan (and I know Rhino can relate) I’ve longed for us to implement a world class analytics program. Like many of you I really enjoyed this 5th round and I think it ushers in a new era where we build this team by having an advantage over most other NFL teams in the 4th and 5th round. The early round players are so uber analyzed that there’s not a lot of room for an analytical program to gain an edge, but just like Billy Beane, it’s the meat and potatoes of a roster where our guys seem to excel. Here’s hoping this is the beginning of something great!

  103. The Flying Pig says:

    New Poll up
    Don;t be afraid to express your opinion
    No judgments

    New blog coming in 5 minutes with pics of all our Day 3 pics

    D – George Theodore (The Stork) and Don Hahn had a major collision in the outfield at Shea Stadium
    *****************
    The Top 5: Yankees’ And Mets’ Most Gruesome On-Field Injuries

    1. The Collisions, 1973 & 2005: Ok, we’re going to cheat and lump both of these together. The Mets may have never had a no-hitter but they do lead the league in horrifying collisions by their outfielders. Just a couple of months after the Braves almost killed Matlack, Atlanta was at it again. In the seventh inning (again), with one run already in, giving Atlanta a 4-3 lead and Frank Tepedino on third after a George Theodore error, Ralph Garr smashed a shot to left-center. Center fielder Don Hahn and Theodore, both running full speed for the ball, crashed into each other. As both lay writhing on the ground, Garr sped around the bases with an inside-the-park home run. The Braves went on to win, 9-8, but not before both Met outfielders were carried off on a stretcher. Theodore, famously nicknamed the Stork, fractured his hip and only appeared in one more game that season, as a pinch-hitter, along with two plate appearances in the World Series. Hahn was back in action a few days later. Theodore only played one more season with the Mets, ending his two-year career.

    Jahn I’d go even further to say their analytics showed you had found 1 and 2 talent and then a cluster of 4-5th round talent so they scukped the picks accordingly. I don’t think its just that they will live in the 5th every year I think that this year its what their analytics dictated

    Jahn I also replied to you above and then summarized again in a reply to someone else later though I did call you Hahn.

    Kahn,
    I was listening to my local sports radio show this past week. They had on a guy who runs a scouting service, and they were talking about analytics. It was interesting to hear what he had to say. But, he kept saying over and over…..that you can’t measure things like heart, attitude or work ethic…and that is why analytics will only ever give you part of the picture. All they are really assessing is athletic ability…not whether or not they’ll be good football players. I don’t know much about analytics, but it was a very interesting conversation.
    ***
    He also said they actually tell the guys they test that something horrible has happened to one of their loved ones while they’re testing them to see how they respond. Will they get up and leave the testing or stick with it? I found that really interesting.

    LOL PIGGY!!

  114. Mike E. says:

    OK, I missed most of this draft – Why don’t we have a 6th RD pick anymore?

  115. Tim Knight says:

    Randy, analytics is statistical information gathered through computers which weren’t available not too long ago. Hickey has said it’s a tool but you always go back to the tape. It’s really about meshing the two together.

    I’ll buy that. I do think what the analytics advantage will show itself more readily later in the draft though. So where the sweet spot in the draft marrys to the best advantage gained, that’s where it’ll find us a hall of famer. πŸ™‚ (sorry, it’s draft day. how can not be optimistic!)

    LMAO!!! I don’t know if I’m Jahn, Hahn, or Kahn at this point.

    Anyone watch Parks and Rec?
