OMG! The Draft is Here!!

2016 NFL Draft


We’ve talked about it for a long time, in fact, some of us started talking about it before we drafted last year, in the 2015 NFL draft.  It never stops.  The NFL Draft, the place where dreams are either realized, or crushed.  There is always hope, always, because where else can you bring in new, young talent, and the potential to bring in 8 or more new faces to your team in one weekend.  This only happens with the NFL, and then after the draft, even more excitement is generated by the signing of players who went undrafted.  Sometimes, a player who was expected to be a mid round pick falls completely off the draft board, or in last year’s case, a possible top 10 pick, like La’el Collins, who due to bizarre circumstances with a murder case he had no part in yet was being questioned by police, had all 32 teams wipe him right off their draft boards.

Tomorrow will begin the madness that is the 2016 NFL Draft.  The Miami Dolphins currently hold 8 picks, starting from the #13 pick, #42, #73, #107, #147, #186, #227, and finally #231.  There is no guarantee that the Dolphins will use all those picks to get 8 players, they may trade up early in the 1st RD and use 2 or 3 picks to accomplish that.  They may trade back later in the into the 1st RD, and gain a couple of picks.  There are so many angles from which to look at either strategy, and a case can be made for both, without either of them being necessarily wrong or right.  For instance, supposedly, this draft plateaus from approximately pick #15 to pick #50, meaning the talent at #50 is nearly equal to the talent at #15.  We pick at #13, right around that imaginary line, so would trading back to pick up a couple of extra players in that range be smart?  Sure.  If all the supposed blue chippers are in the top 10, does it not make sense to trade up and get a superior talent and a player with a greater chance of making a big impact on our team right now?  Sure.

Whatever we do tomorrow, partly because of past failures, such as the Dion Jordan trade up to #3 in 2013, or just because of personal preferences, some of us will be angry at some of the selections we make, and yet others will be ecstatic.  That’s how it is.  I have to give all you guys/girls lots of credit for your dedication to the sport, and especially the entire draft process.  I know many of you tirelessly watch college football to find potential for the Miami Dolphins, and others, like myself, who don’t watch college ball, scour as many scouting reports, watch highlight reels, record and watch the entire week of Senior Bowl practices and the game itself, the same with the NFL combine.  The funny thing is, even the best of the best here, who really put in max effort, most likely don’t put in a fraction of the time our scouting staff put in, and our coaches and our GM put in.  Granted, that’s their job, we do it for (fun?).  Still, we should all probably just chill out with the negative feelings (I know I will have them), because these guys really did put in the effort to make the team better, and hopefully, it actually works.

I’m going to give you my picks for each round, without trade ups or trade downs, because those are just too hard to predict, it requires a lot of cooperation and desire from another team or two, and therefore, I’ll just do it straight up.  This draft is not who I want for our team, it’s how I expect it to happen.

RD 1 – Pick #13  RB Ohio State  – Ezekiel Elliott

First of all, let’s put that myth that if he’s elite, he’ll be gone by pick #10 nonsense, and if he’s not, he’ll be there.  Great NFL players are chosen all over the place, and these selections are made by a few parameters, GRADE, NEED (at a certain position) and VALUE.  Every team will have different metrics on those, and many teams obviously have different needs for both position, and the type of players they want to fill those positions.  For example, while Vernon Hargreaves may  be rated very high on most boards, a team that prefers bigger CB’s may not have him on their board early at all.  So back to Elliott.  He would most definitely be our best RB if he were to join our team.

Much has been made of Adam Gase’s use of a “running back by committee”.  I think it’s only fair to look at each situation, and why that may have been.  In Denver 2013,  first off, Gase had Peyton Manning., who threw the ball 659 times for nearly 5500 yards.  The Broncos drafted Montee Ball, and added him to a stable with Knowshown Moreno, Ronnie Hillman, and and CJ Anderson.  Moreno carried the ball 241 times, more than double the carries Montee Ball got at 120 carries. Is that really a RB by committee?  In 2014, again, Manning put up astronomical numbers, 597 pass attempts, over 4700 yards.  With Knowshown Moreno out of the picture, and Montee ball fat and out of shape, and fumbling often, Gase had little choice to try and find the hot hand.  CJ Anderson rushed 179 times, for 849 yards, and Ronnie Hillman 106 times, for 434.  Keep in mind, Ronnie Hillman was the better 3rd down back, and most of his action was on 3rd down, but again, the RB by committee aspect doesn’t necessarily show up, because the talent just simply wasn’t there to earn the bulk of the carries.

In Chicago, 2015, Adam Gase had 30 YO Matt Forte,  rookie Jeremy Langford, and 2nd YR RB Ka’Deem Carey.  Just for some background, Forte has never really been a bellcow RB, the most carries he had in his career was his rookie season when had a high of 316 carries.  He never broke 300 again, and has been slowly diminishing in carries the last few years, from 289 in ’13, to 266 in ’14, and last year 218.  Langford carried 148 times, and  Carey 43.  Clearly, Forte was his best guy, but at 30 YO, he didn’t overwork him, and for the most part, Chicago’s offense was a disappointment, despite Jay Cutler playing at his most efficient, with 21 TD’s and only 11 INT’s.  They sorely missed Brandon Marshall last season, and when Alshon Jeffery got hurt, that was it for this offense.

My point is, I don’t believe that Gase has a strategy to use his running backs nearly equally.  I think he had to in Denver, out of necessity, and in Chicago, he didn’t want to burn out his 30 year old star in Matt Forte.  Gase did say he wants a stable of RB’s, and I think that’s the responsible thing to do, considering what can happen if there’s a severe drop off in talent from your starter to your reserves.  make no mistake, if we draft Ezekiel Elliott, he will clearly be our best RB, and we will use him as such.   He will make a huge impact in our offense.

RD 2 – Pick #42  CB Houston – William Jackson III

We have a definite need at CB, no question about it, and we get the best we can in the 2nd RD.  Jackson gives another 6 foot CB who can play both press and zone coverage.  A good fit for what we’re looking for, Jackson will certainly be given every opportunity to start opposite Byron Maxwell.

RD 3 – Pick #73  OG Stanford – Joshua Garnett

As much as we need a CB, we need to shore up the interior OL.  We get the powerful OG Garnett from Stanford.  Garnett also will be given every opportunity to start somewhere on the OL, most likely LG, to compete with vet Jermon Bushrod.  That will leave a battle royale at RG, with Billy Turner, Jamil Douglas,  and Kraig Urbik .

RD 4  – Pick #107  OLB Akron –  Jatavis Brown

Excellent athletic player, with wheels (4.47 40).  Driven, team oriented player, lunch pail type of guy.  A little undersized at 5’11” 227, but a great guy to bring into the mix at OLB.

RD 5 – Pick #147   S Miami –  Deon Bush

Bush is a physical player who likes to hit, and when he does, forces fumbles.  Bush forced 5 fumbles in 2014.  He can also go up and get the ball with his 39 1/2″vertical.  Bush has only 4 INT’s in 4 years, along with 13 passes defensed.  Could be a good player down the line.

RD 6 – Pick #186  CB Virginia – Maurice Canady

Canady brings another CB with size to the team.  Not a physical player, but a player with talent that perhaps VJ can bring out.

RD 7 – Pick #227  DE Baylor  –  Shawn Oakman

Oakman is probably worth a flier in the 7th RD.  he could easily end up off the team before the season, but maybe, the light goes on, and he becomes a player.  I’d take tht chance this late in the game.

RD 7 – Pick #231   WR  Illinois – Geronimo Allison

OK, so I really just want to scream Genonimo!!!!!!  Do I take a chance and try to sign him after the draft?  No way!!!

    I’m not buying into the idea that wake has been relegated to an role coming off the bench

    But we will see how it plays out

    Hey here is always jordan too….lol

    • steveccnv says:

      I’m not even not buying, I’m flat out saying he won’t allow it to happen. You don’t put the work in he’s done, being that kind of star, to have the team move you to being a role player. What might prove this point is the fact that he wouldn’t take a pay cut and he’s still on the team.

  2. D says:

    Morrison gone 😦 Brothers still there right?

  3. Tim Knight says:

    Lots of RBs left.

  4. naplesfan2010 says:

    There goes Morrison an early fave of mine at ILB who ran too slow for me to take.

  5. Mike E. says:

    I bet we go CB next round, and It could be Canady

  6. naplesfan2010 says:

    Jordan Howard is also still there if you want him for your shortyardage powerback right?

  7. Mike E. says:


    Robinson just went off the board. There ya go!

  8. D says:

    Damn that guy is a giant

  9. jetsssuck says:

    man it wasn’t a nightmare last night but on a positive note the sun did rise.

    Is Alfred Morris still available? Hopefully some of the teams that drafted a CB early will cut a high priced aged veteran and we will be able to pick him up from the 8th spot.

    • D says:

      Morris is in Dallas

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      Why would we want a guy who can’t catch with high mileage on his legs?

      • jetsssuck says:

        who do we have that can take a pounding between the tackles? Didn’t the fins try to get a back all off-season who could take a pounding between the tackles? Oh I forgot, we have Thomas again who we took several years ago in second round for several draft picks traded away.

  10. naplesfan2010 says:

    shhhh Scooby is still there and has a higher grade than the last 6 LBs taken.

  11. D says:

    Damn raves have 3 comp picks in this round

  12. uwantwat says:

    I want the bellringer from Germany.

  13. naplesfan2010 says:

    Shoot there goes Lewis to the Ravens who do really need a OT.

  14. son of a son of a shula says:

    I’m surprised no one has a Tunsil in full mask avie

  15. markeyh says:

    Seem like RB will be great value in the 5th we could add another imo…

  16. son of a son of a shula says:

    We don’t need a 3 down linebacker from the 5th round if he can make the team and get some reps and play good special teams then that’s a good pick

  17. uwantwat says:

    6’4″ man mountain kicking those 5’9″ midget CBs. Yes please!

  18. D says:

    Brothers is an amazing linebacker. I don’t think he is that deficient in pass pro but that’s the consensus on him

  19. uwantwat says:

    Well if you want a FB don’t muck around get Gronk’s young bro.

  20. jetsssuck says:


    who do we have that can take a pounding between the tackles? Didn’t the fins try to get a back all off-season who could take a pounding between the tackles? Oh I forgot, we have Thomas again who we took several years ago in second round for several draft picks traded away.

  21. Tim Knight says:

    There are still a lot of DE options will similar grades out there as well if we feel the need to add more competition. I like Anthony Zettel as one of those guys.

  22. Tim Knight says:

    Let the bitching begin. LOL

    • Tim Knight says:

      My guess is our board is running dry and we see no difference in many of the prospects left so we added more picks to stock up.

    • Mike E. says:

      A 5th for 2 late 6th RD and a late 7th RD


      • Tim Knight says:

        What I just said, everyone left has the same grade. I just looked at DL and there are a ton of guys with 5.2. 5.1 and 5.0 grades etc. We probably feel anyone we would pick in the 5th we can take in the 6th and 7th.

      How so?

      • jetsssuck says:

        every local sports news reporter already is rolling their eye’s concerning the picks after our 1st rounder.2 nd rounder instead of Henry that involved a trade CBGuy traded for isn’t any good to start this year. 3rd rounder RB from Alamba was back up to Henry and basically was injury prone during his college career, 4Th rounder traded away, 5th rounder traded away, next years 4th and 5 th rounder traded away.

  29. Rhino says:

    Back from a half day of tutoring… just in time for 5th round soon. (since I didn’t miss anything in the 4th) 😦

  30. New Age says:

    Ill go ahead and do it. So, we didn’t need all those super talented young guys…but we do need a bunch of camp fodder. Yeah. I have a weird idea. We could do better in FA and drafting young talent early and then have a bunch of comp picks like the pats every year instead of just trading away the early picks.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Or everyone left has the same grade. I just looked at DL and there are a ton of guys with 5.2. 5.1 and 5.0 grades etc. We probably feel anyone we would pick in the 5th we can take in the 6th and 7th and get the same value.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Drafts to tend to thin out and now it’s a lot of the same so stock up on some more. Teams do stuff like this for a reason, not just to piss fans off. LOL

    We Traded our 5th to NE

  36. The Flying Pig says:

    At this point you are just drafting guys you like better

    I don’t think it matters whether we have a 5th or 2 6ths

  37. uwantwat says:

    This place is a hoot! LMAO New name for Jones now. Dobby

  40. markeyh says:

    The Dolphins must think the 7th round have some of the best players in the draft?

  41. D says:

    These are backup rounds so having more maybe makes sense. We need depth in a few spots

  42. wyoming85 says:

    Ah Screw it!
    Trade back up for Cash and Scooby!

    Then I can take a nap!

  43. The Flying Pig says:

    When Tannebaum trades down is that like coming down off a high

    TB had an awesome draft outside the head scratcher with the kicker pick

  45. The Flying Pig says:

    Todd Bowles is probably awesome at funerals

  46. getterdone says:

    I like the picks from 1st to 3rd round….all will be starters or see significant playing time except maybe Carroo….but he will be good, is a big chuck yardage guy should Stills get hurt or isn’t effective for some games.

    Drake is a homerun threat from different spots on the field…..get the ball in his hands running it, catching it, or returning it….LOVE that pick…..makes us more explosive so we can have a scoring average over 24pts a game and be able to keep up with the rest of this high flying league!!!

    • Tim Knight says:

      Or when we go 4 wide it’s Landry, Parker, Stills and Carroo. I think Carroo is going to play. He can also give Landry a breather from time to time after a big play etc. They look like the same type of player.

  47. The Flying Pig says:

    Don’t try to get me excited about scooby just to see me cry when we pass guys

    I know what you are trying to do

  48. The Flying Pig says:

    Finally the RBs start coming off the board
    Dixon and a booker gone !

  49. Tim Knight says:

    Look at it like this, if we have a 6th and 7th rd grade on the rest of the 125 prospects or so, why not trade down and increase your chances that a few of them pan out as opposed to picking one of those guys in the 5th. So instead of having a 5th and two 7ths, we now have two 6ths and three 7ths. It’s like getting UDFAs early.

    • markeyh says:

      Because many of them that late can be UNDF

      • Tim Knight says:

        Or you get the same value in the 6th and 7th that you think would be there in the 5th. This happens all the time. Teams’ boards dry up and everyone left is the same grade.

  50. The Flying Pig says:

    Rishard Robinson broke into to another players home and stole stuff


  51. Tim Knight says:

    Last year we had Wake for less than half a season, OV, Shelby, Fede, McCain, Moore and Coples at DE. This year we have Wake (we’ll see about his status), Williams, Branch, Fede, McCain, Moore and a few others competing.

    I don’t see why this year is more of a concern than last year. Jordan could also be back in the mix.

  52. markeyh says:

    Patriots then turn around and trade our pick with Seattle,,

    • jetsssuck says:

      i wonder if we got more draft picks than NE? The way things unfolded this draft I wouldn’t be surprised

  53. Rockphin says:

    We traded with New England?

  54. The Flying Pig says:

    These fucking talking heads

    They just said – honey badger cleaned up his act
    So Robinson can

    Honey badger had drug addiction issues
    And he got past it
    Robinson broke into a teammates house

    Stop comparing these things

    Wtf – I’ll hang with a drug addict anyway over a guy who breaks into my house

    These guys have no morale compass I swear
    It’s only a matter of time before someone makes an analogy between murder and testing a tag off the bed

    • markeyh says:

      Many drug addicts are also thieves just like folks who break into your house. A thief is a thief weather they break in or not. Nobody wants to be violated by a thief!

      • The Flying Pig says:

        Then we are talking about a thief and not a drug addict

        Judge each act for what it is

        Honey badger never broke into some one’s hiuser and stole a laptop
        He openly admitted to struggling with addiction
        And he actually thought help before he even was drafted

        But they just made an analogy to a guy who was arrested for breaking into a home a stealing a laptop

        These talking heads have been really irresponsible in the way they talk about “off field” issues

        Some things are for worse than others

        Domestic violence (dragging a woman from an elevator) is substantially less moral than Smoking weed out of a gas mask
        But the nfl didn’t hesitate to make ray rice comparisons

        I have lost faith in the judgment of these talking heads

  55. Rockphin says:


  56. D says:

    We just got belechick’d

    • Tim Knight says:

      How? LOL

      We did what we did they did what they did. If we have a similar grade on everyone left what’s the big deal, we multiplied our chances on a oouple of guys panning out.

      Why are you guys always looking to say we got fleeced? Really, in the almighty 5th rd? LOL

    Yeah, I can’t blame him!!!! The campus police didn’t do anything to get the guy who stole his laptop, so he broke into the real thief’s apt and retrieved his own laptop that was stolen from him…yet he was made out as the criminal here…

    Give me Rishard Robinson all day long. He’s gonna be a good player!

  58. wyoming85 says:

    Well Piggy if it makes you feel any worse we could have had Scooby or Cash?

    I feel like very year “Mel’s best available” gets more and more inaccurate

  60. getterdone says:

    So many here had Brothers, Westerman, & Jeremy Cash as 2nd rounders…lol. They’re still floating on the board.

  61. wyoming85 says:

    Told you there would be good RB’s in the 5th!!!!!!!!!!!!

  62. Rhino says:

    Thanks Piggy, you’re right… I forgot we traded the 5th too. 😦 Our roster is set now. All we’ll b e doing in 6th, 7th, and rookie FA is throwing shit against the wall and hoping something sticks.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Probably just projects
      Anyone drafted now can make a push though

    • Tim Knight says:

      That’s the idea, our board dried up and what’s left is all the same so increase your chances will more options. A lot of people don’t understand that because some prospects were pounded into their brains as better than what they are on mock lists. Teams view it differently.

  63. jetsssuck says:

    other than the 1st rounder this has been a train wreck the rest of the way….Very questionable calls after the 1st round.

  64. D says:

    Wtf vadal Alexander still on the board?!

  65. getterdone says:

    Yes Piggy, from what I remember reading months ago, it was Robinson’s laptop he went to go get.
    My only knock on him is thet he needs to add some more muscle weight.

  66. naplesfan2010 says:

    Collins RB Cash S Vadal Alexander OG Wright LB and Jerrell Adams TE are some more that are still left from my Big Board.

  67. D says:

    Westerman out there still as well

  68. Rhino says:

    After a night’s sleep, and a cup of coffee, I think a contribution to the disappointment on Day Two has a lot to do with the depth of pass rush talent that bloggers here have been drooling over since January. Four months of coveting defensive players, and eventually we had an offensive draft leaving everyone blue-balled. lol

    Coaches must really believe in the FA, and plan on going defense in next year’s draft to start collecting the “replacements”.

    • getterdone says:

      I’m ok with it if under Gase we can start scoring 24+ points a game…Woooo Whooooo!

    • The Flying Pig says:

      There were 22 defensive players drafted in the 2nd round (we got one)

      There was a lot of defensive talent on day 2
      And we chose not to exploit that

      But I think we had a plan and stuck with that

    about howard

    “Howard had four picks last season and five the year before.

    What’s more, quarterbacks had just a 32.4 passer rating in his coverage area, according to Pro Football Focus.

    He allowed receptions on just 37.3 percent of his 75 targets, which is third-best among draft-eligible corners, PFF said. And he ran a 4.41 in the 40. But he did allow two TDs on vertical routes last season.”

  80. son of a son of a shula says:

    Lol no it wasnt

  81. Rhino says:

    Jonathan Williams to Bills, was someone I saw as a fallback plan for Fins. When he was healthy and got touches he was electric. But split carries too much.

  82. finfanrob says:


    speaking of the idiot talking heads. i heard one of them saying about the pats trade and getting sea 4th next year. he said something like since it is next year it is devalued a round. if it was this year it would be a 3 so basically next year the pats got a 3 for what they traded to let sea move up.

    how in the world do these idiots get jobs.

  83. Tim Knight says:

    We’re not really in need of a RB. Ajayi and Drake are going to be the top 2 dogs like it or not. LOL

    We can still add a tough between the tackles back to compete for a spot. Alfred Morris was a 6th rd pick, so was Terrell Davis. Priest Holmes wasn’t drafted and neither was Arian Foster. So there’s that. 🙂

    I am still pissed off that we did not get Nkemdiche.

  90. naplesfan2010 says:

    Matakevich is still there at LB. Brothers too.

  91. wyoming85 says:

    Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 2m2 minutes ago
    As of round 5, there has been strength in numbers:

    Browns have drafted 4 WRs.
    Lions have drafted 3 OL.
    Panthers have drafted 3 CBs.

  92. D says:

    Eric Davis looks like the product of Whoopi Goldberg and a fraggle having a baby

  93. D says:

    Brothers gone and westerman

  94. The Flying Pig says:

  95. drg says:

    Broncos got an absolute steal with Booker in the fifth. This Bama kid and CB better be damn good.

  96. D says:

    Jatavis brown still out there too

  97. getterdone says:

    Kevin Hogan to the Queefs….interesting.

  98. uwantwat says:


    for as stupid as they are it better come with a money shot too


    I bet Kiper swallows too.

  99. naplesfan2010 says:

    so glad we did not draft Booker.

  100. getterdone says:

    So far this draft we have basically added::

    OT(LG) Laremy Tunsil
    MLB Kiko Alonso
    CB Byron Maxwell
    CB Xavien Howard
    RB Kenyan Drake
    WR Leonte Carroo

    That’s about a 50/50 mix of defense & offense starter type material. I think this offseason will grow on you guys and go a long way to getting the Gas era off on the right foot!

  101. getterdone says:

    I love the picks. Drake will be a huge weapon, think of a bigger better Percy Harvin that can run the ball too.

    Carroo is a homerun threat too in case Stills doesn’t play well, or also to give Landry a rest.

    Gase is an offensive minded HC/play caller.
    He knows in this new NFL, and especially vs. the Pats, that we need to avg 24+ points a game.
    I like this. Score more & the defense will be better for it & can be aggressive instead of Coyle passive!

    • D says:

      Still is a FA next year so would also be an insurance policy for if he does have a good year and we can’t afford to resign him

  102. D says:

    Jatavis would be a fine 6th round guy kinda a poorer poor man’s Deion Jones

  103. uwantwat says:

    That is an outstanding draft.

  104. steveccnv says:

    All the picks so far seem to be potentially big contributors.

  105. finfanrob says:

    I bet Kiper swallows too.

    and what he cant swallow he uses as a hair gel

  106. getterdone says:

    D, good point on Still in his final year of rookie deal….Carrooooooo

  107. son of a son of a shula says:

    You know when you really like a player and you say, for example, “gee I wish we had more players like Landry”, well that’s what they did with Drake and Caroo. They should be nice additions to this team.

  108. getterdone says:

    I like the Bears draft so far….and the Steelers secondary just got good again with Artie Burns & Sean Davis….yikes!

  109. getterdone says:

    Browns on the clock for their 5th WR.

    • Rhino says:

      It’s their plan to resign Manziel. Put 7 WRs on the field, so Johnny douchebag can just chuck it in the air and hope it hits someone wearing the same color uni. 🙂

  110. Rhino says:

    btw, I saw James Walker gave 28 of 31 first round picks a ‘thumbs up’… of course one of the three downs was the Fins pick. What is it about covering the Dolphins that brings out the hate in everyone. lol

  111. uwantwat says:

    Even though we didn’t get the kicker?
    Damn Bucs stole my man. However, I would have won my bet. He went before the end of the 3rd round. Small consolation though.
    Good news he has a younger brother who is as good. There is hope still.

  112. finfanrob says:

    so now one values the draft that includes players traded for? well based on that shouldnt you deduct out the players they lost. or does that not help make the point of a great draft.

    • getterdone says:

      You make trades in the draft, up, down, & for players….it’s separate from FA losses & adds.
      ….and you call yourself an accountant….SMH!

  113. getterdone says:

    Spencer Drango…good pick by the Brownies.

  114. Rhino says:

    man, it’s a long, long time to get to the 6th round. I feel like Elaine watching The English Patient

  115. uwantwat says:

    Night folks, I have to get some sleep.

  116. Mike E. says:

    So we traded away our 4th RD pick for (2) 6ths and a 7th, and the Patriots turn that into a 4th RD pick next year. WTF!

    • Tim Knight says:

      No! We traded our 5th for two 6ths and a 7th. Who cares what they did with the pick. It was Minnesota’s, not ours anymore. We already made our trade.

      • Mike E. says:

        Whatever, 5th. Freaking Patriots capitalize on our pick nicely, and we wait 200 picks to go again.

  117. Brian in NY says:

    One of the reasons we can get within four games of the Patriots is because of what happened today. We trade them a pick (cardinal sin to trade within the division), and they turn around and trade that pick for more than they have us. It’s just comical.

  118. Rockphin says:


  119. getterdone says:

    LOL @ Rhino on Manziel & the hail mary all 3 downs for Cleveland.

  120. D says:

    Drango and Collins gone

  121. getterdone says:

    Seahawks just got Marshawn Lynch 2.0

  122. finfanrob says:

    So we traded away our 4th RD pick for (2) 6ths and a 7th, and the Patriots turn that into a 4th RD pick next year. WTF!

    mike you are wrong. one of the talking idiots said since it was next years 4 that means it is really devalued a round so it is like a third this year so basically the pats got a 3rd this year. and yeah he actually said that.

  123. D says:

    We traded our 4th as part of what we did to take Howard

  124. getterdone says:

    LMAO, Browns take their 5th WR….

  125. finfanrob says:


    so i have this right in valuing a draft you can use trades but you cant use FA gains and losses. can you tell me which page that is on in the ‘how to evaluate a football draft’ book

  126. D says:

    There goes Fahn Cooper

  127. Rhino says:

    CJ Prosise went 90th in 3rd. Fins took Drake at 73. Am I missing something. Any place between 73 and 90 was a good value for Prosise. Is Drake that much ‘faster’? Just curious.

  128. Tim Knight says:

    You guys are looking at our trade with the Pats and what Minnesota did with our 2017 4th rd pick all wrong. Do you guys like to be negative just for the sake of it? SMH LOL

    • Mike E. says:

      No, I made a mistake with 4th and 5th RD. Still, the Pats took our 5th and turned it into a 4th next year.

      • Tim Knight says:

        So what? We made our deal and then it was Minnesota’s pick to do what they want with it. What the Pats are going to land the next Reggie White with it? I mean I don’t get this kind of thinking. I really don’t.

  129. getterdone says:

    Chargers take Jatavis Brown to end the round.

  130. Mike E. says:

    Shoot, Jatavis Brown gone

  131. wyoming85 says:

    Well the fans crucify the FO for 1 WR

    I’d hate to see what they’d do for 5???????????

  132. finfanrob says:

    looks like the nhl has said no the tampa advancing further. already two really god awful power plays for NY. must be nice being a big market team and owning the refs

  133. getterdone says:

    Who will be the 196th selection???

  134. Mike E. says:

    I can’t remember anymore, what happened to our original 6th RD pick?

  135. finfanrob says:

    6 minutes
    Its equivalent to a this year 5th

    no, it is equivalent to a 4th. it is a 4th pick so it is equivalent to a 4th. that is like when a guy is drafted in the 3rd round and some say he is 1st round talent. no he isnt, he is 3rd round talent or he would hae been a 1st round pick

    • D says:

      Draft value FFR, next years 4th carries a value of a this year’s 5th since you don’t know how low in the 4th that pick will wind up being. I get what you are saying but that’s not how GM’s vauke future picks

  136. Rhino says:

    the reason I ask about Prosise and Drake… it gives us an idea of what Gase is planning on doing.. our offense should be more wide open but not necessarily ‘deep/veritcal’. Cameron may be used to stretch more than Stills (?). But Parker, Landry, and now Caroo are gonna pull anything close to their hands. Maybe we’ll see more Tanny runs…. but the RB is definitely gonna be catching lots of passes.

  137. Mike E. says:


    Honestly, i can never understand that garbage. This years 5th = next years 4th? Must be the new math. Call me next year when I have your 4th, and you used my 5th and tell me how you feel. lol

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      They get the extra round for having to wait a year to use it. Call it interest.

    • Tim Knight says:

      It’s always been that way. You drop a grade this year for next year’s pick. We did the same in 1998 for Surtain, we traded a 1999 1st for a 1998 2nd to get him.

    • D says:

      Mike it’s because you don’t know what nect years draft class will look like in the 4th you also don’t know what pick in the 4th that will be, so it could be last pick in the 4th

  138. son of a son of a shula says:

    New blog up so we can start a fresh page for the griping of our Day 3 picks

  139. The Flying Pig says:

    19 picks to go

  140. finfanrob says:


    i dont care how gms look at it. i was laughing at the idiot saying basically the pats got a 3rd this year for the trade when that would be impossible since the 3rd round was over. but he just wanted to find some way of making the cheats look like they are so smart

  141. Mike E. says:

    Tim, D. Son, Everyone

    Still, call me next year when I have your 4th RD pick, and you used mine in the 5th last year. Hear me?

    • Tim Knight says:

      Nope! That makes no sense to me. It wasn’t our pick anymore. Come on, man. We targeted Carroo. The Pats have no idea what they get next year and it’s not like they hit on all their picks anyway. That’s just paranoia Pats stuff you’re rolling with. It had nothing to do with us.

  142. Mike E. says:


    Until we trade out of this draft entirely, and get 3 4th RD picks in 2018, which will be worth 1/3 of a 7th RD pick this year. lol

  143. Mike E. says:


    Is there a new blog?

  144. finfanrob says:

    you guys are missing the point. we get there is trade value. there is with any trade, but saying next year 4th is like this years 5th is bs. it is a 4th pick next year. who gives a shit about what happened the year before

  145. finfanrob says:

    lmao with the islander getting another power play in the first period. why doesnt the nhl just put them thru. this is worse then the nba

  146. Rockphin says:

    I just saw
