Wedge Scouting Report: Broseph Fullback


Aliens have been experimenting on humans for years.  Its practically our Universal Past Time.  We’ve been trying to use your species to build the perfect species.

And we never get it right.  I don’t know why.

The common thought among aliens is that humans are just far too inferior.


But I figured it out!

You take the mother of a pro bowl NFL player and wait for her to have another baby.

And then – WOW – a fullback is born!


This year the NFL has the little brother of two of its premier players available as a fullback.  On the left side of the screen above is Derek Watt, the little brother of JJ Watt.  On the right side of the screen is Glenn Gronkowski the little brother of Rob Gronkowski.

Both are going to be available in the draft and both are fullbacks.

I know what you are saying.  As Miami Dolphins fans in the Joe Philbin era – you are saying….What’s a fullback?


Can you believe that some NFL teams have a guy in the backfield who’s primary job is to block?

Both Gronkowski and Watt are notable for their blocking.

At Kansas State Gronkowski played in a heavy run offense.

At Wisconsin Derek Watt opened big holes for Melvin Gordon in 2014.


Considering that the Bears did not have a fullback on their roster last season, its probably unlikely that the Dolphins change their ways and add a fullback.

But if they did…They might be able to nab one of these little brothers in the 7th round of the draft.

If the Broseph Fullbacks were an alien weapon of destruction, they would be the two headed monster of the  the Xabox Moon!  Lookout, they eat humans!

    it has to give us all a warm and fuzzy feeling the best leaders of this country are a guy that belongs on SNL skits and a woman that belongs in transgender porn.

    • Tim Knight says:

      This is where people need to rethink the lesser of two evils. That’s how nothing changes. Trump isn’t really a conservative either if that’s where you stand, he’s more of a benevolent dictator with leanings on both sides of the aisle. Hillary is simply a dictator type who thinks she knows more than you and is better than you.

  3. finfanrob says:


    you are right. that is why every time i just wright my own name in and right beside it i write ‘nlc’s rule’

  4. finfanrob says:

    hey what do you do at night for fun?
    well i am an old fuck i play this fun game of FU roulette
    wow that sounds like fun what is it
    well slow down there told you i am old. i go on this stupid fucking dolphin blog with a lot of other olde fucks but trust me it is fun
    oh really what is it
    well every time you hit the refresh button you have no idea who’s comment you will end up on
    yep, you are fucking old.

    • Tim Knight says:

      It’s a misleading title but it’s the media. That’s not what Jennings is really saying. He’s asking for RT to be free and let him play his game. I hope Gase/Christensen do that.

    • steveccnv says:

      No one takes it at face value after listening, the assholes from ESPN just want a little shock, so…

  7. steveccnv says:

    All I heard today was how cool Jared Allen’s retirement video was, so I watch it and instead of riding off into the sunset (the sun wasn’t out) he just rides off. I don’t get it, why was that cool?

    Miami Dolphins sign Arena Football League star A.J. Cruz

    Woooooo Boohoo we have A.J. Cruz it’s all going to be different now 😉

  11. dbolt48 says:

    Al talked up Ogbah. I’m more cautious with him as a prospect.

  12. sb7mvp says:

    Laces out Dan. There’s another one.

  13. Mike E. says:


    Are you saying people shouldn’t vote for the lesser of the 2 evils? What’s your alternative?

  14. dbolt48 says:

    I see Matt Miller has us taking Noah Spence again in his mock. I’m slowly coming around to the idea after being very hesitant at first.

  15. dbolt48 says:

    I like this news:

    @AdamHBeasley: NEWS —> Miami Dolphins express interest in Rishard Matthews as free agency looms

  16. Mike E. says:

    I think we’ll talk to Rishard, but if the money climbs too high, we’ll wave goodbye.

  17. Tim Knight says:

    Mike, if it’s between Trump or Hillary? That’s what my comment was based on.

    • Mike E. says:

      Oh, I thought I made that clear earlier

      Mike E. says:

      February 18, 2016 at 8:41 pm (Edit)

      Thanks Jon – Trump is playing the Jack Nicholson “you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall” psychology. Only way I vote for Trump is if it’s him or Hillary.

  18. dbolt48 says:

    Now begins Tim’s descent for a photo to get people fired at work😂

  19. Al in MIA says:


    From Matt Miller’s piece …(validating what you have said before)

    “4. Safety Keanu Neal, Florida

    Keanu Neal is the best player in the draft that no one is talking about yet. He’s a heat-seeking missile coming down from his perch at safety, and with the drills in Indy designed to highlight burst and flexibility, Neal should dominate. “

  20. Mike E. says:


    Hillary terrifies me more than Trump. That’s the truth.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I hear ya. The fact that she has a chance to be president tells you a lot about our fellow countrymen/women.

      • Mike E. says:

        I agree, and honestly, I’m disappointed that Trump is in the lead as well. I think too many people think just because in theory he isn’t beholden to any lobbyists that he’s the best choice. Is that really all there is? We need to fix the system, and destroy the 2 party system that rules the day now. I had heard Bloomberg was going to run on the Independent ticket, but then I haven’t heard anything in a while.

  21. Mike E. says:

    One thing I believe is in our favor regarding Rishard is I think he has a good rapport with Tannehill. Tannehill seemed to like throwing his way, so that might factor in our favor.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Maybe Gase can sell him on a new start.

      • Mike E. says:

        I’d let him compete for a starting job. I like his game more than Stills. He’s a much more physical player, which I like. I know Stills is much faster, but he was underwhelming last season.

  22. Tim Knight says:

    Mike, I don’t think Matthews has anything to do with Stills who is on the cheap and will be a UFA next year. Stills gives us some speed. Only 27 catches but a 16.3 YPCA,10 of 20+ and 3 TD.

  23. Mike E. says:


    What I meant is, if they think Stills is a #2 WR, they won’t want to pay Matthews a #2 salary. Maybe due to the fact that Stills is on his rookie contract, it won’t matter, I guess we’ll see.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I think Stills is #3 behind Landry and Parker. It’s all about value and how the team would view Matthews in their offense. I’m not sure #WR plays a role in any of it.

      • dbolt48 says:

        If Matthews is on the team he’ll start in front of Stills. I’d Rishard goes elsewhere then Stills is your number three and you invest a mid round pick on WR.

  24. Tim Knight says:

    Dbolt, maybe one of the other WRs on the team steps up and surprises.

  25. Mike E. says:


    I meant #2 as he will be starting on the perimeter. For all intents and purposes, Landry is the #1 WR.

  26. 81Howie says:

    Anyone ever watch the History Channel, they have that Nostradamus effect show…
    They show the 3rd Anti-Christ in front of a crowd of thousands cheering him on.
    Trump is that man and its going to be Armageddon!
    I’m voting for him anyway, he dont take no shit!!!
    And resign Mathews!

    • Mike E. says:

      I have watched some Nostradamus show, it really got on my nerves. The loose interpretation of the stuff he said, and also the fact that he made a million freaking predictions, makes it easy to say he got all these things right.

  27. Mike E. says:

    An orange man with a bizarre hairstyle will rule the world

  28. Tim Knight says:

    Hillary Clinton has always tried to tell the truth and doesn’t believe she has ever lied. She’s such a pol.

    Al, appreciate the posting, i respect Miller too. Its hard sometimes for me to convince its not bias as ai am a HUGE UF fan, but i do try very hard to tell it like it is when saying if i think another team i care a lot about should use a draft pick to gt them.

    Neal is damn good, even though i think next year Marcus Maye probably will be an even better prospect. Heal hit a guy this year, so hard, i felt it at my house lol. Very aggressive player.

  30. The Flying Pig says:

    I kinda double downed on CB and TE at the end

    42: R2P11
    73: R3P10

    147: R5P8
    189: R6P11
    225: R7P6
    229: R7P10

  31. The Flying Pig says:

    Stills is the speedster we need on The field
    His presence makes a difference

    I’m looking forward to a Landry, Parker Stills 1,2 & 3

    Matthews, who I like, kind of mucks things up with his familiarity with Tanny

    Sure it’s an asset
    But the big plays will probably come from other guys
    And we need big plays from time to time

    I am kinda hoping they let Matthews go
    We will see

    • Tim Knight says:

      I think Parker is going to be a big time player. I have nothing against Matthews but Parker is the guy to get excited about.

    • dbolt48 says:

      Mathews made plenty of big plays last year and was the best run blocker on the team. He also was the most consistent catching the ball prior to his injury.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        He’s got good qualities

        But speed kills

        And we do have other guys that an do what Matthews does

        He’s certainly consistent
        But that deep ball is a killer when it works
        And Matthews doesn’t really help us with that like stills does

        It’s almost like marthe s can be a detriment who can keep younger players who are ready off the field

        But I do like him

        If we kept him I would be worried he would win the starting job
        I think he’s the only player ever I have said that about…lol

  32. D says:

    Tim Knight says:
    February 19, 2016 at 1:43 pm
    There’s a lot of good prospects from Florida this year.
    There are every year you damn UF haters!

  33. The Flying Pig says:

    What I really want to hear
    Is not that the Dolphins are working to keep Vernon or Matthews

    I want to hear that the Dolphins are working to keep Miller
    And have their eyes on a few free agent OL

  34. D says:

    Tim thats horrible competition for us. They have tons of cap space to use and when Peyton retires finally, they will have another 21.5 mil on top of that. We have 0 way to compete with Denver money wise, and they can make the same usage promises as we can too.

  35. D says:

    Gase just has to point at past few years of him as an OC, the pattern is there on touches. Usually has one back that get 25-30 a gam and another that gets about 10. Usually the 25-30 touch guy is used petty well in the receiving game as well so he can probably expect 4-6 throws to him as well.

  36. D says:

    As far as Miller beign back, its not th teams decision, i promise you we will be out bid in FA, and there will be teams who are going to use him in the number of touches range he is expecting. The only think we have at this point is how much Miller wants to stay with the Phins so anything that ends up with Miller next year comes because Miller loves this team/city period.

  37. D says:

    If i dont get Miller either im bumping the priority of RB in my draft strategy and hoping i get an equivalent player, even if it takes a year or so to develop, or im getting Matt Forte on a affordable 2 year type contract. I know everyone is convinced that Forte will be expensive but that is not what the market is going to dictate this year. There are several young, up and coming RB’s who are going to get their paydays, Forte is going to get last contract aging RB money, even though talent wise i think he still has plenty left in the tank.

    • D says:

      I think Kenyan Drake, is the best bang for the buck replacement for Miller, but Kenneth Dixon, Devonte Booker, Alex Collins, would all be backs that could give us some of that special talent Miller has. Jonathan Williams could as well as long as he shows at cmbine that he is fully recovered. Derrick Henry might be an idea if we are looking for more of a 3 down guy who only rotates out to be rested.

    • dbolt48 says:

      CJ Anderson.

  38. dbolt48 says:

    @AlbertBreer: The Rams announced they’ve released LB James Lauinaitis, DE Chris Long and TE Jared Cook.

  39. sb7mvp says:

    It still makes me mad that we had Miller in a contract year and didn’t ride him like seabiscuit, especially since resigning him is unlikely at this point. He’s commanding a salary like we did use him properly.

  40. Tim Knight says:

    C.J. Anderson is a RFA so not sure how that works being that he was undrafted.

  41. Rockphin says:

    had heard Bloomberg was going to run on the Independent ticket, but then I haven’t heard anything in a while.

    MIke E, I too am tired of the two party system, but unfortunately unless things are changed at the 50 individual state levels (every state has their own way of doing things) there will never be a third party candidate elected. It’s not even possible the way some states are set up.

  42. dbolt48 says:

    Not sure Id waste much time on Laurinitis. He’s better than what we have at MLB, but so is a 🐌. Draft the MLB.

  43. The Flying Pig says:

    So what do you guys think?
    Should I make a run at Trump and Hillary

  44. Rockphin says:


    This is based upon everyone’s health checking out before the draft. (of course)

  45. The Flying Pig says:

    All visionaries face the same obstacles

    But a 1 -2 – 3 LB draft is going to change the WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!

    You’ll see!!!!

  46. The Flying Pig says:

    Speaking of Trump
    when the details about the Trump University stuff leaks
    He’s really going to find himself in an ugly scandal

  47. The Flying Pig says:

    This Tim
    But there is a lot more to it than this
    Trump was sued by the NY Attorney General’s Office for starting Trump University
    for whatever reason it hasn’t been in the news much

    but I think its on its way there, given that this story just broke

    I was watching both Clinton and Sanders talk about financial crisis’ that young people are faced with bc of education

    And Trump University and the scandal surrounding it probably follows that dialogue

    • Tim Knight says:

      Yeah that’s not good for a guy running for president.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        the details are really bad

        politicians always face scrutiny and lawsuits

        but this is the attorney general’s office suing
        in a public office suing him for basically promising to make young people real estate professionals, taking there money and not delivering

        Its just hasn’t been talked about yet. I don’t know why the other republican candidates haven’t brought it up

        but I sort of sense the democrats will if he wins the republican nomination
        it fits there dialogue

  48. Tim Knight says:

    Armando Salguero ‏@ArmandoSalguero 53m53 minutes ago
    Dolphins had three starting LBs in 2015. I’ve been told two will be replaced. So draft, UFA, all possibilities merit scrutiny.

    • Rockphin says:

      When did we have three starting LB’s???? I mean I know we had LB’s who started games, but they weren’t starters. LOL

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I guess that means Jenkins won’t be replaced according to Mando

      I don’t know, I find it hard to believe some one in the Dolphins organization said to him – “We are replacing 2 of our starters this offseason”

      I expect us to replace 2
      I’m just saying its probably more speculation by Mando

  49. Rockphin says:

    “I keep trying to get Smith in the 2nd round…………..but it never works” Honestly I don’t think any of the guys I picked in that Mock will drop to where I was able to get them. Fanspeak lost their minds for a minute there.

  50. D says:

    Chris Long just cut….guess that rumor was right. It was the same one that said Laurinaitis was also a target.

  51. D says:

    DBolt, i think ya gotta look at it like this. Draft an ILB high, or draft an OLB high, and pick up one in FA. Laurinaitis i think winds up being less expensive and a bigger upgrade at MLB than say Irvin at OLB. So then you go RD1/Rd2 at OLB and you have a pretty sick LB corps.

  52. D says:

    Long had been relegated to second tier on the depth chart for the Ram’s i think he would come pretty cheap compared to re-signing or getting a guy in FA. He probably has a little bit left in the tank though and would give us a starter until either a lower round DE developed or we found a better option in a later draft.

  53. D says:

    I doubt very seriously anyone takes Jaylon Smith before the second round. Unless he pulls a wolverine and shows up really ahead of schedule in the healing process, like able to show something significant at combine meetings, i dont see how any team can take that level of risk, unless of course they are a team with no needs, maybe Denver or Pats would probably take than chance, oh wait they dont have a 1st rounder…boo hoo

  54. D says:

    I think it wouldnt be a bad idea to pick up a guy like Irvin then draft a guy like Ragland or Brothers, but just as effective would be pick up a guy like Laurinaitis and then draft a guy like Jack, Jones or Lee.

  55. Rockphin says:

    I don’t think there is any chance Ramsey slides to number 8 either

  56. D says:

    Your score is: 8248 (GRADE: A)

    Your Picks:
    Round 1 Pick 15 (L.A.): Darron Lee, OLB/ILB, Ohio State (A)
    Round 2 Pick 11: Jonathan Bullard, DE/DT, Florida (A+)
    Round 2 Pick 12 (L.A.): Kevin Dodd, DE, Clemson (A)
    Round 3 Pick 10: Sebastian Tretola, OG, Arkansas (A-)
    Round 4 Pick 9: Harlan Miller, CB, Southeastern Louisiana (A)
    Round 4 Pick 12 (L.A.): Kenyan Drake, RB, Alabama (A)

    Round 7 Pick 6: Demarcus Robinson, WR, Florida (A)
    Round 7 Pick 10: Antwione Williams, OLB, Georgia Southern (B-)

  57. D says:

    3mil roster bonus on Demarcus Ware this year. Thats a pretty big reason to cut, but the Broncos can eat that and still have plenty of room.

  58. dbolt48 says:

    I hear what your saying about the LB situation, but honestly JL hasn’t been impressive the last couple of years. He’s better than what we’ve had, but not by a whole lot.

  59. dbolt48 says:

    LOL….BPA left me picking no OL😂

  60. Tim Knight says:

    I just got back from a wake. A woman I grew up with, her husband died way too young of cancer. I actually met him not through her, but at a sports bar as he was also a Phins fan. His last name was Marino. I would see him over the years to watch the game, then he started bringing his young son “Danny” with him. So I got to know him too. He’s also friends with another of my friend’s son so I see him at functions from time to time.

    Very sad, way to young.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      that is said

      we are all getting to that age when we start seeing our friends die
      getting old sucks

      • Tim Knight says:

        Yeah man, it makes you think about your own mortality. He was a cool guy. Has a lot of kids too. Some in or just out of HS. His son Danny is older at 28. I saw him tonight. I feel for all of them.

  61. The Flying Pig says:

    8: R1P8



    42: R2P11

    I would be very happy with this draft using Fanspeak (Bleacher Report/Miller)

    I guess they don’t think very highly of Matakavich

  62. The Flying Pig says:

    it pains me to take an OG instead of a defensive player with a 2nd round pick
    But if you haven’t see Garnett play, you should
    He looks exceptional

  63. Tim Knight says:

    It’s funny, everyone who knows or has now met Gase says the same thing, he’s enthusiastic, fiery and competitive. Yet at his PC he came across as laid back and even keel. Just goes to show you that you can’t judge someone based on one situation. At the podium is different than being around the guys talking and coaching football.

  64. Tim Knight says:

    Piggy, I read Garnett’s pros and cons at CBS and I’m really getting annoyed with how contradictory they are. I mean one moment he’s a guy who can dominate then he’s a guy who needs work and lacks this and that. They need to trim that shit down. Too much wandering opinion.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I just read a little
      Read a little elsewhere
      Then start watching some vids

      I’m telling you – they go out of the way to look for flaws
      These players are usually better than they say

      • Tim Knight says:

        I do read elsewhere. I like CBS to get a feel for a player and I do watch video but I’m not going to watch it for all the prospects. LOL

  65. The Flying Pig says:

  66. The Flying Pig says:

    I think in general CBS is the best site

    Sometimes I get into a prospect and watch a lot of video
    I must have watched all of deandre Hopkins and lache seastrunk games in their years
    I probably watched a lot Denzel Perryman vids too

    • Tim Knight says:

      Right, you watch a few and a little more but I go a lot by what others say and sometimes it becomes clear when most people agree about a guy.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        There were some really good videos on Kevin White last year by some one with a YouTube channel which really broke him down

        I gotta find that guys channel
        He really did a good job breaking down things most people don’t write about

        And showing it on tape

        I watched him talk about Parker and Strong last year
        He really liked White much more than the other prospects

        But he wasn’t a dick about it
        I came away liking strong a lot
        I still think strong is in his way to a great NFL career

  67. Tim Knight says:

    Piggy, isn’t Kevin White injured?

    • The Flying Pig says:


      At least he was for some of the year

      I don’t know what his story is

      It’s hard to believe he won’t be great
      He had a ton of talent
      He looked like a can’t miss prospect

  68. The Flying Pig says:

    That sucks for him

    Hopefully he bounces back and has a great 2016
    The guy has elite talent

  69. Tim Knight says:

    Piggy, last year the first WR I was high on was Parker, then White, then Cooper. I saw too much one foot in from Parker and thought that was a con. LOL

    White looked like another Julio Jones. Cooper was just really good. I now think Parker might be the best of all of them. He has a natural gift for locating the ball and using his size and talent to go get it.

    We got a good one.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I still think those top 4

      Are going to be very good
      To me they were a cut about the rest
      But I always have to pick 7
      Bc of the samurai theme…lol

      I have to look back to see who my other 3 were
      I know Perriman was one
      I suspect there is another good one I am forgetting

      But I did like Strong a lot
      And thought he was being overlooked by many

      • Tim Knight says:

        That WR class was really strong but many had ailments that kept them from having productive rookie seasons. Whatever with all the rest, Parker shined in a big way. I’d be shocked if he’s not a top WR for the next 5 years minimum. Tannehill saw it too. LOL

    here’s a idea 4 u guys to think about draft and FA. FA get a guard and get a low priced competition in other need spots. Don’t resign lamor thomas or OV. Pick up low priced rb in fa like ray rice.OV is not going to be good because he has only one move to get to the qb and that is not going to last with the nfl protecting qb’s knee’s.

    The draft, pick a center in 3rd round which maybe is the best rated center coming out. Move Pouncey to guard which he played in college. Fourth round draft highest rated FB. 2nd and 1st round use for CB and LB with low salary for rookies.
    Next year start drafting a high draft choice for OL replacements needed with expiring contracts plus we should have extra money available for FA.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I kinda like Pouncey at center
      He didn’t work so well at OG a few years ago

      I think you meant. Lamar Miller
      I agree with you abiut letting OV go
      Depending on the price tag, I want to keep Miller

      • jetsssuck says:

        i think pouncey has made pro bowl at both center and guard.

      • steveccnv says:

        Yes, Pouncey did, but he’s a much better center. You can’t expect a rookie 3rd rounder to come in and play center, while calling the plays, and expect that to be an upgrade. I think Douglas holds down one of the guard spots, the other will be winner between Thomas, Turner, and a vet FA. The O has to be better with Gase calling the plays and running an offense that isn’t so Philbinie 😛

  71. jetsssuck says:

    piggy, we had a tornado touch down last week by flimgo gardens that stayed on the ground to Nob hill.

  72. steveccnv says:

    Mel Kiper has Dolphins taking Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley with No. 8 pick.

    With the injuries we’ve had at tackle, this isn’t a bad move, and it is a good time to take an LT to replace Albert some day, but we have to get a play making LB in the first round Smith, Jack or Ragland, or we wasted another yr of paying Suh big bucks without having a playmaker behind him to make the O pay for double/triple teaming him.

    • jetsssuck says:

      I can see us taking Stanley since we have Albert’s contract due next. Let him play guard until Albert leaves or Fins don’t pay him and he has to leave.He didn’t want to play guard in KC and I don’t think he will sacrifice playing guard here either. He was a guard in college.

  73. steveccnv says:

    Another reason why we won’t have a traditional FB on the roster this yr is the depth at WR. Why would they try to resign Matthews, if they were going to use a FB in the O?

  74. steveccnv says:

    After the 2013 season this article came out on Lauriniaitis, after 2013 he was ranked as the 93rd best player in the NFL. Laurinaitis is never going to be the type of player to wow anyone with bone-rattling hits or uber-athletic splash plays. But he’s about as solid as it gets in the middle. The tackle stats speak for themselves and also represent a nod to his durability as he has never missed a game in five NFL seasons.

    After 2014 he was the top 4-3 inside LBer as far as missed tackles go. I wouldn’t mind signing him to an FA contract, which would make it ok to draft Ronnie Stanley or Hargreaves.

  75. steveccnv says:

    We must address MLB this offseason or we’ll be 6-10 again, or worse.

  76. Tim Knight says:

    Here’s another condescending article by Omar. He’s still shitting on RT and making it seem like he knows all. That said, he doesn’t even know what year it is. LOL

  77. Tim Knight says:

    Jetssuck, I wouldn’t start moving the OL around. Albert, Pouncey and James should be our core to build around. Upgrade the guards and add better depth at tackle and center.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      I agree. I also think backup tackle is just as important for the team as guard. the last 2 years our tackles have gone down and that’s killed the oline. Ultimately though our scheme needs to allow tanny to get rid of the ball much faster. sub 2.5 secs

      • Tim Knight says:

        We need more stability at guard regardless of who it is, and an upgrade over Fox for sure. I think Gase/Christensen will do a better job keeping the dogs off RT in vulnerable formations and down and distance situations. That was the biggest issue.

        I also expect better route concepts which is suppose to be Gase’s area of expertise.

  78. The Flying Pig says:

    8: R1P8
    42: R2P11
    73: R3P10
    108: R4P9
    147: R5P8
    189: R6P11
    225: R7P6
    229: R7P10

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I intended to draft Joshua Garnett
      but he went off the board quicker than I expected

      Jordan Howard is a good looking scrappy RB

      • Tim Knight says:

        Howard is a solid option if we let Miller walk. I don’t have a good feel for what will happen with Miller. I can see a team offering him 5 years $32M due to his age, low touch per game average but very productive per as well. Would you match that?

    • Tim Knight says:

      Don’t see Whitehair lasting until the 3rd. This fascination with Jaylon Smith who has a long rehab ahead of him baffles me. Like we’re the team that can afford that sort of thing. I don’t get it. He’s not the next Lawrence Taylor and he’s a question at MLB at the next level. Not sure he has the frame to hold up inside. He looks more like an OLB to me. Is that position really that key that we can maybe forgo his rookie season for future fascinations about his upside?

      • rgs322 says:

        I don’t get it either. I was a big fan of Jaylon before the injury, but the timing and severity would keep me from drafting him the first couple rounds.

  79. The Flying Pig says:

    You guys aren’t going to like wedges scouting report this week

  80. Tim Knight says:

    rgs, exactly!

    I would not be surprised if our LBs in 2016 are…
    SOLB Hewitt
    MLB Ragland
    WOLB Jenkins

    • rgs322 says:

      TBH, I wouldn’t mind drafting Ragland in the 1st. I think we need to go LB with one of our first two picks. Either Jack/Ragland in the 1st or Brothers/D. Jones in the 2nd.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I see a lot of fans speak of Ragland as if he’s not a factor. He’s a stocky built guy who knows how to play the game and could serve as a run stopper and blitzer on long down and distance. Let’s see how he stacks up after the combine. I expect 6-0+ 255, 4.7ish, 20+ reps of 225. If he does that, I’d take him at #8.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I think Ragland replaces Misi and the other two can be nickel LBs. Jenkins played on a high ankle sprain most of the season missing games because of it. Hewitt shined down the stretch. We really need to figure out DE, CB and S.

    • steveccnv says:

      I approve this message, but I’d like to trade down to get Ragland.

  81. olddolphan says:

    AT 6:48 PM PIGGY SAID. “You guys aren’t going to like wedges scouting report this week.” WHY is THAT, Piggy?? Is wedge going to tell us “Ross wouldn’t know a good GM or Head Coach if one bit him in the ass??” –OR,has Gase already tested that theory by BITING ROSS IN THE ASS??
    On another issue, Florida Atlantic’s baseball team went into Starkville yesterday and beat South Dakota State 11-5, then beat #11 ranked Mississippi State 10-6 on their home field. TONIGHT, FAU leads Mississippi State 4-0 in the 8th inning, having out hit the Bulldogs 12-2 so far. Those old Bulldog fans haven’t rang their cowbells very often tonight. Another win tonight by FAU might put them in the Top 25, at the expense of an over-rated SEC team. I really love college baseball and always try to catch as many games as I can. A friend has invited me up to Cowlumbus to see FAU take on Ohio State this season. If Southwest has decent fares on their direct flight, I might take him up on the invitation. The Buckeyes, no doubt, will be looking to return this ass-kicking they received in a 3-game series in Boca Raton last season.

  82. Mike E. says:


    Gotta be a QB . . . Does Cam have a little brother or cousin in this draft maybe? 🙂

  83. The Flying Pig says:

    It’s Jaylon Smith

    • Mike E. says:

      I don’t want you to spoil it, but on the face of it, I don’t have a problem with that at all. I kinda have an idea of what you mean though

  84. jetsssuck says:

    with the draft and FA, I think we have to hit on getting 4 quality new starters for this team to challenge.
    DRAFT—-rounds 1(cb or lb) and 2(lb or cb), 3rd round (G or center) and 4 with a FB.
    FA—quality guard.
    Draft after round 4- OT, safety, and then development players.
    after final team cuts—hopefully we can get another starter

    The team will need to simplify the play book from a typical NFL playbook of 120 plus plays to 30-40 plays that everyone can absorb and be on the same page every play. During the season they can game plan with new plays while adding 2-3 new plays each game to playbook.
