    Lol at Lawson playing OLB for Buffalo. Rex is one stubborn SOB.

    • Tim Knight says:

      He can’t get away from his scheme regardless of his personnel. Now his brother is with him and he’s also a 3-4 guy.

  3. The Flying Pig says:

    Draft is over
    NBA playoffs are in full swing

    Let’s go Heat!

    White Hot Piggy Avatar!

    Oink!

    • Tim Knight says:

      Good luck with that. LOL

    • jetsssuck says:

      what has happened with Studemeyer. He has fallen out of the rotation completely since game 3. No minutes at all. Is he in doghouse or what

      • The Flying Pig says:

        No
        He played well in the first 2 game of the Hornets series

        Its just Whiteside is such an asset nd they are fining time for McRoberts
        They need to try to use everyone a little

      • jetsssuck says:

        you don’t think its unusual he went from first off bench to not getting any minutes? He was starting ahead of Whiteside at some point at the end of the season also. Tomorrow should be telling with Toronto’s big lineup set.

  4. The Flying Pig says:

    Catch up later guys
    gotta get some work done

  5. Tim Knight says:

    Piggy, Lucas could compete with Thomas for the dimeback role.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I guess so
      But he is the one guy who’s role seems dependent on beating some on in camp

      The rest seem drafted for a specific purpose we don’t currently have on the roster

      • Tim Knight says:

        Being that Lucas has played CB and S just like Thomas a few years ago and he went undrafted.

  6. Mike E. says:

    I see more of a Chris Cooley or Dallas Clark type of receiver when I watch Duarte. I don’t see the physicality of Clay when I watch him, but man, I’d take Dallas Clark or Chris Cooley in our offense in a second!

    • The Flying Pig says:

      different I guess….^

      • Mike E. says:

        Hey, why not? Not sure how much you gain by running around in shorts anyway. I’m all for a different approach.

      • Tim Knight says:

        It actually makes sense. Let them get up to speed mentally when they join the vets in minicamps and OTAs. All rookie camps have been is running around doing the things they’ve always done.

  7. getterdone says:

  8. Tim Knight says:

    The new rookie minicamp approach gives Gase and his coaches a chance to really meet these guys and communicate instead of being on the field barking the same type of stuff from afar. I like it.

    • steveccnv says:

      What it does is gives them an overview of what to expect this year, and what is expected of them, so they can put everything into perspective, instead of keeping them in the fog. It’s what I ask for when in training, but no one ever does it or gets it.

    from prisco

    Best pick: They moved back form No. 8 to 13 in a trade with the Eagles earlier this offseason and still landed one of the top players in the draft in tackle Laremy Tunsil. Yes, he has some questions off the field but he is a dominant player.

    Questionable move: Taking Tunsil is still a move that will be questioned. He will be watched closely in his first few years off the field.

    Third-day gem: Sixth-round receiver Jakeem Grant is tiny, but he can fly. He might be able to add a speed threat to the offense, but especially as a return man.

    Analysis: They landed four good players with their first four picks. In addition to Tunsil, they got corner Xavien Howard, running back Kenyan Drake and receiver Leante Carroo. That’s a good haul for general manager Mike Tannenbaum and gang.

    Grade: B+

    not that i actually read your comment, but i agree. why not, what they have done for years hasnt worked and i agree the physical aspect isnt that big a deal. i actually like the idea

  16. getterdone says:

    Redskins released CB Chris Culliver.
    Culliver signed a “four-year, $32 million contract” last March, but tore his ACL and MCL in November. The remaining guarantees in his contract were voided by a Week 2 suspension for violating the league’s personal-conduct policy. Culliver was excellent in 2014, and is still only 27. He’ll get a second chance, but will have to be healthy first.

    • getterdone says:

      BTW, he’s 6’0 199 & a former 3rd rd pick that had 2 great years in SF before getting hurt last season with Wash.

  17. Mike E. says:

    Piggy

    The only thing I think about the 2017 draft is that we have no picks left. 🙂

    • getterdone says:

      We’ll have an extra pick when they trade Albert after 2016 season.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Don’t worry
      we have the ’18 draft picks to use to trade into the ’17 draft

      • Mike E. says:

        I’m sure we’ll do that. It’s like the people who keep on opening new credit card accounts and transfer all their debt to a different card. Eventually, that shit catches up to you, HARD!!

    • steveccnv says:

      What does a Jewish boy from Brooklyn need a pick for, you gotta fro 😉

  18. Mike E. says:

    That’s crazy that both Chance Warmack and Jonathan Cooper, 2 of the highest rated OG’s in the 2013 draft haven’t panned out as of yet. I really wanted either one of those guys for us, but so far . . . BUST

    • Tim Knight says:

      Cooper broke his leg his rookie year and never rebounded. Not sure what Warmack’s deal is.

    • Mike E. says:

      I remember the long discussions I had with Jahn as to which one of these OG’s was better, and a better fit for us. We would have been screwed with either of them, although you never know whether Cooper would have got injured here or not.

      • Tim Knight says:

        There’s always that fate thing if a guy went somewhere else.

      • Mike E. says:

        Yep, you never know. Wasn’t meant to be , even though you mocked him to us, and the blog erupted like a volcano. lol

      • Tim Knight says:

        I remember that as if he actually went to us because of me. LOL

  19. Mike E. says:

    LOL Tim – I remember the vitriol well. It was pretty funny!

    • Tim Knight says:

      Oh come on Tim, really a fucking guard at #12. LOL

      Well at least we traded up for Dion FF. If we only knew how doomed that draft was for us. 😦

  20. Mike E. says:

    Steve

    No jew-fro here. I had a good friend that had one, kinda like Bob Ross

    https://www.twitch.tv/bobross

  21. Mike E. says:

    As it turned out, both G’s were gone before our regular pick at #12, Cooper at #7 to ARZ, and Warmack at #10 to TEN

    • Tim Knight says:

      Yep! I think we’re learning if a team likes a guy they take him and they don’t care what the typical rules are.

  22. Mike E. says:

    Just looking at the rest of that draft for us, Mr. T is starting to look pretty good. lol

  23. Randy says:

    Interesting conversation here locally about the trade Minnesota did with us. The radio guys…some former players and some just media guys…loved the pick for the Vikes…felt they got a great deal. Why? Because they said the consensus is that next year is a much better draft than this year…and teams were more willing to give up picks in this draft to stockpile them for next year. I hadn’t heard that before.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Yeah and I’m sure they know who they’ll get in the 3rd and 4th rounds. All you had to do was to watch this draft to know that’s impossible. LOL

  24. sb7mvp says:

    Who are these teams drafting players they don’t like?

  25. getterdone says:

    No thoughts on Chris Culliver who’s been productive, but let’s go on and on about busts Cooper & Warmack…lol

    • sb7mvp says:

      Why? Did someone say something about him?

      • getterdone says:

        lol, not at all. Must have been whispers from the backroom.

      • getterdone says:

        He’s still got some rehab to go. But could come cheap unless he wants to wait till he’s fully healthy to get a bigger contract somewhere. He’s 27, so he’s still got some good football in him hopefully.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Not really until we resume pursuing FAs after May 12.

  26. Randy says:

    Tim,
    I have no idea what your response meant.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I think it’s premature to know that next year’s draft is deeper in the 3rd and 4th rounds at this time. It sounds more like homerism to me.

  27. Tim Knight says:

    It was cool to see Sterling Shepard go to the Giants, they did a bio on him prior to the draft – he lost his dad when he was just 6 years old. His Dad Derrick won a championship at Oklahoma back in the 80s.

  28. wyoming85 says:

  29. Randy says:

    Tim,
    Gotcha. Homerism, ya say? Lol

    • Tim Knight says:

      Really, they know the makeup of the next draft after this one just happened. Yeah okay. LOL

      The mocksters didn’t even get this one very accurately.

  30. getterdone says:

    in 2017 we’ll supposedly get a 3rd, 4th, 7th Comp Pick.
    We’ll also likely deal Albert by then as well as another pricey vet getting beat by a developing player. That will net us another pick or two…IMO.
    So I’m not gonna freak about something that’s a year away. Time to play some football in 2016!

    • steveccnv says:

      Why so eager to get rid of Albert? What if we have one of the top OLs in 2016?

    • Tim Knight says:

      I wouldn’t be so fast on trading Albert next year with his contract. More like an outright release if we don’t keep him. He’s signed through 2018 and is owed $21M over 17 & 18.

      I would also look at that as yeah let’s fuck with the OL again especially if we finally got it right in 2016.

  31. Mike E. says:

    GDP

    I have no thoughts on Culliver because we don’t know if and when he’s healthy

  32. Randy says:

    No way Tunsil would have been there at #8 if what happened didn’t happen. The trade really had nothing to do with him being available to us. It doesn’t make the trade better or worse. We got lucky…that’s it. The value of that trade will come down t how Kiko and Maxwell perform in the years to come. Tunsil was s gift.

    • Mike E. says:

      Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.

    • steveccnv says:

      Randy you aren’t making sense today, did someone hack you’re account 😉

    • Tim Knight says:

      It was still going to happen. That was the point. It worked out for Miami either way.

    • steveccnv says:

      It’s the bottom line of the trade, we got both players for free, and they didn’t count against FA. Doesn’t matter how either plays, because we’re just talking about the compensation.

  33. Mike E. says:

    Randy

    I’m with ya on the picks from next year. It really bugs me.

  34. Randy says:

    MikeE,
    I sure hope all these comp picks come rolling in like people keep saying. But, they’re also end of the round picks, and if we have to give up all of our original picks because we can’t trade comp picks….we’ll be stuck with a bunch of picks at the end of those rounds. I guess folks think we’re gonna have end of the round picks anyway, so it doesn’t matter as much.

  35. Randy says:

    Tim,
    Mocksters are morons. They have nothing to do with what teams think. Teams study drafts several years in advance. So, yeah, I’d guess they do have a feel for whether or not next year’s draft is “better” than this year.

  36. Randy says:

    gdp
    You don’t care about draft picks next year, but you’re already figuring out a way to deal Albert for picks next offseason? Lol

  37. Randy says:

    Lunch is over.

  38. Randy says:

    Tim,
    How can people grade the draft that just took place before any of these guys have played a down in the NFL? Since when does reality or common sense enter into evaluating draft classes? Lol
    ***
    Besides, it wasn’t me who said this shit to begin with. I was just passing on what I heard. It’s always interesting to hear what the fans and media say up here about stuff compared to how it’s portrayed in Miami. I have no idea if they are right. I didn’t claim they were.
    ….
    I’m out.

    • Tim Knight says:

      They have to make a decision at some point. They’re also scouting them on their most recent season, not two years ago. I was just commenting on what you reported they said, I never said it was your idea. But it wreaked of ball lapping. LOL

    New poll up on how many games into the season before fans are calling for Doughty

  40. son of a son of a shula says:

    I wonder if the NFL would let Grant have a fraction as part of his number, he could be 16 1/2 or something it would be great.

    The only thing I think about the 2017 draft is that we have no picks left. 🙂

    Mike, we still have 7 or 8 picks left next year. (including the assumed comp picks. 3)

    • Tim Knight says:

      He’s saying if we don’t get them. Then we only have a 1, 2, 5, 6 and 7. We’re definitely getting oomp picks next year, hopefully we’re right on the what we’re expecting 3, 4 and 7.

  44. son of a son of a shula says:

    Is Mike still doing his annual post draft kvetching?

  45. getterdone says:

    Dolphins waived DE Damontre Moore, RB Jahwan Edwards, and WR Christion Jones.
    Moore has never lacked talent — he was effective in situational duty early in his career with the Giants — but he’s shaping up as a disappointing career underachiever. Moore was cut for “behavioral issues” by New York, and didn’t last the offseason in Miami after being claimed off waivers last December.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Moore must really not impress people as a person.

      • son of a son of a shula says:

        We apparently wanted Less of Moore

      • getterdone says:

        former 2013 3rd round pick (81) overall by NYG. He’s 23yo.
        Mike is mad about giving up picks to get a guy we want, but these are some of the guys that every team in the league blows picks on.

        Hopefully our FO got most all of their selections right in some capacity.

  46. son of a son of a shula says:

    Christion Jones is Grant’s first NFL victim

  47. BoulderPhinfan says:

    son, we may have even less moore by start of season if Doughty pans out.

    • getterdone says:

      What I’m hoping for with Brandon D.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Well Moore wasn’t drafted so I wouldn’t count out a late rd QB. He has much more experience but there is going to be competition at least early on. We have 5 QBs on the roster.

      • BoulderPhinfan says:

        I actually think doughty is going to PS. I doubt we cut moore.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Probably but don’t kill the hopes of those fans who want to replace Moore and then Tannehill. LOL

    Yeah, Mike, but it BEST if you get lucky that you are good. It helps you get lucky with her again….

  49. Rockphin says:

    But, they’re also end of the round picks, and if we have to give up all of our original picks because we can’t trade comp picks…

    Randy, starting next year the NFL will allow teams to trade comp picks. So we MAY have traded our comp picks and not our #32 pick in each round. Hell the comp picks will be higher anyway……after we win the superbowl!

  50. getterdone says:

    The Jaguars declined LT Luke Joeckel’s fifth-year option.
    This was expected after Joeckel struggled mightily his first three seasons, and lost his starting job to free agent pickup Kelvin Beachum. Joeckel has not shown the ability to handle himself in an NFL running game, and has been pulverized in pass protection. He was the No. 2 pick in the 2013 draft. The No. 1 pick in that draft — Chiefs LT Eric Fisher — has been only slightly better.

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      And Dion FF has been a disaster (as trump would put it). I think lane johnson which I was hoping was our pick when we made the trade has been solid.

  51. Tim Knight says:

    A lot of former top rd tackles have not been good in recent years. I hope that changes with Tunsil when he plays tackle. 🙂

  52. son of a son of a shula says:

    Doughty beats out Moore, maybe next year

  53. getterdone says:

    Tim, that’s why I posted that. There’s such a premium on LT. So yes, hoping Tunsil is the real deal that he showed @ Ole Miss.

  54. getterdone says:

    See, even the great Ted Thompson misses. Even Ed Lacy has been up & down.

    The Packers declined DE Datone Jones’ fifth-year option for 2017.
    Packers GM Ted Thompson has yet to exercise any of his first-round picks’ fifth-year options, also declining Nick Perry and Derek Sherrod’s. All three have been easy decisions (and not great draft picks). Jones posted 20 tackles and three sacks last year, and has yet to become more than a rotational player.

    Tunsil has the feet. Those other guys don’t have the moves Tunsil does.
    Reply

    So, those other guys don’t have feet!!??? Man, I was upset about drafting guys with shoulder injuries, but TWO top tackles who don’t have feet. Those are some SERIOUS injuries!

  57. drg says:

    I’d be thrilled with the trade if I were a Vikings fan. They got close to 200% value based on analytical models I’ve seen. I wasn’t a fan of the 2nd and 3rd round trades at all. There was a very good chance we still get Howard without moving up in the second and we gave up a load of chips to get a 4th WR who better be really good to validate the price.

    Overall it seems like a good draft. Lots of picks that will fill needs if they are good enough to play. Just not a fan of the style Tbomb employs. Little depth means the players picked and signed in FA better work out or we are hurting and not holding a lot of future draft equity to make up for it.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      Let me be the first to say – LC3

    • Tim Knight says:

      When you trade for a pick this year using next year’s picks as collateral, you always give up a one pick higher. Actually the Vikings should have gotten a 2nd. So they settled for a 3rd and a 4th. I view a 2nd as better than a 3rd and 4th. A 3rd and 4th rarely adds up to a 2nd rd value. So I could argue the Vikings didn’t get max value.

      There were also rumors the Bears were high on Howard.

    OK, I’m out till later. NOGTIH ALL

  63. drg says:

    Son,

    I didn’t say it…. It actually sounds like the kid might be a great receiver. The draft is such a crapshoot that I’d prefer we stockpile picks and build depth rather than depend on a smaller number of players to pan out.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      We still got 8 guys, plus two starters in the trade. I just hope this is the kick in the ass our O needs to get it going.

    ———————————-
    Solid but not exceptional. You would expect a little more for a guy that got taken 4th overall, but you are right, comparing him and how he turned out vs how Jordan has turned out it looks like a genius selection. God if we had taken Ansah, or just stayed put and selected any number of people that draft wouldnt look so much like a cock up. I still say the actual trade itself was a steal, moving up that many spots in the 1st and only giving up a second….still end result is what it is….pure poop.

  65. D says:

    Mikey did ya get my email?

  66. D says:

    We have to have a few things pan out the way we hope they will for this off season to have been a success, but on paper i think it has a lot of potential to be.

  67. Tim Knight says:

    So all we gave up for Maxwell and Alonso was taking on Maxwell’s contract. 🙂

  68. Not saying it’s going to happen and not bashing Tannehill with this but WHAT would be the reaction of people who have defended him if he was replaced by Doughty and the team did better?

    • getterdone says:

      Could happen, that’s why you keep drafting QB’s. But I suspect it would take a few years sans injuries before that happens. So don’t too excited yet.

    Thanks D! I’m going to see if anyone has anything scheduled, if not, we’ll run it tomorrow. I’m not going to read it, but I’ll put some images along with the picks as you ask. At least I’ll try not to read it, I like reading articles when they’re pooblished.

  72. BoulderPhinfan says:

    D,
    I thought johnson got his 5th year option picked up. you have to be pretty good for that to happen. I just hated that trade the minute it happened. We could have gotten 2 starters with those 2 picks. Fuckin Ireland.

      We should have sat there and took Eifert and still had our 2nd, he fucked that draft so bad..

    No rings this year my friends, but certainly is interesting.

    so looks like D wrote an article. i hope everyone gets a good nights sleep, wakes up and makes 17 pots of coffee. i will check in around 3 or 4pm. by then the first post should be in the comments section.

        Thats how focused my son gets with flipping Legos and minecraft. He builds the craziest shit, with full on working parts and everything.

    Thats how focused my son gets with flipping Legos and minecraft. He builds the craziest shit, with full on working parts and everything…

    sounds pretty cool. it is great when they find something that can grasp their attention like that and they give 100%. it didnt hit my son till like when he was 10 years old and was pitching in an all star tournament. it just clicked that game and after that the only thing that he gave 100% focus too was every time he was on the mound. even the games he played at 1st base he was always good but it was never the same focus as when he was pitching.

    and yeah i get it, all guys at some point learn to give a 100% focus to the mound.

    D,
    I thought johnson got his 5th year option picked up. you have to be pretty good for that to happen. I just hated that trade the minute it happened. We could have gotten 2 starters with those 2 picks. Fuckin Ireland.
    ———————————-
    Yeah he is good, and compared to the rest of these guys from past few years, he is a stud. I think though he doesn’t have anything on guys who usually go top 5, like Long, Or Trent Williams, or Tyron Smith who wasnt top 5 but was top 10, Joe Thomas, etc.

  81. D says:

    Was looking at a few teams draft picks and to go along with the Jags and Bills, which i think have already been mentioned, i thought the Ravens had a pretty good one too.

  82. son of a son of a shula says:

    What about Albert to the Jags for Telvin and their 3rd next year? They didn’t do anything for their O-line.

    • D says:

      Thas an interesting proposal, good trade mate, value probably not too off, though Telvin holds more value, being young and cheap, i think for us than Albert does them. Seems possible. Question then really becomes are we sold on Bushrod playing OG to give up our current LT and a certain starter to get Telvin and solidify the LB corp.

      • D says:

        Have a feeling if we were to do that it would come after TC starts and we have a chance to eval Bushrod better.

  83. son of a son of a shula says:

    Just an idea even though I would like to see us with the beefed up o-line
    I do like Telvin though but I doubt they’d part with him

  84. Mike E. says:

    Son

    I’m pretty sure the Steelers game is going to be the one for me, regardless of what the other people decide. My friend is a huge Steelers fan, so we’ll make a weekend trip out of it. Sounds like you’ll be there, and I’m sure Stanger and OD will be as well, so we can have a mini fest at worst.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      Cool, yeah that one is shaping up for friends of ours too. What a shame I may have to go to more than one game, oh the agony – not!

  85. Mike E. says:

    Actually – The Jags just refused their option on Joeckel. Albert would be a get for them, and we can use some ammo next season.

  86. Tim Knight says:

    D, Gase isn’t really a little dude. He looks pretty tall, like 6-1 or so.

  87. Tim Knight says:

    So now we want to go back one step on the OL again by trading Albert? I don’t get you subtract by addition folks. The idea it to add more talent and get better, not keep bringing one in and let one go. I’d rather have Albert at LT and Tunsil at LG or vice versa than Tunsil at LT and back to our same guard instability.

    By the way, Albert is signed through 2018 and is owed $32M the next 3 seasons so good luck getting good value on that trade.

    • Brian in NY says:

      I agree 100%. What is left of his guaranteed money?

      • Tim Knight says:

        Well he’s guaranteed $26M and has only had cap hits of $15M his first two seasons. This year his dead cap if we released him is $11M followed by $3.4 in 17 and $1.7M in 18.

        So it would be more likely you make a move to release him next year unless he’s simply playing too well and you don’t want to upset the chemistry on the OL.

        Still, Albert is a good player and he’s another year removed from his knee injury. He’s not rehabbing this year, he’s ready to go from the get go. Yeah let’s move on from that because we’re so good on the OL. I really don’t get that thinking.

    • Brian in NY says:

      Yep, lackluster effort and desire to play the game.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Not sure anyone said he would be a factor it was more hoping he’d get his shit together because he’s still really young and he does have talent. Obviously he didn’t show the team enough.

  90. Brian in NY says:

    Mike,

    I may wind up going to the Steelers game as well, I’ll have to see. As you know, my best friend is a huge Steelers fan as well. I need to decide soon- flights for October are very inexpensive right now.

  91. Ken says:

    Steelers probably a no go for me. The Bills are the most likely for me

  92. son of a son of a shula says:

    Ken they might settle quicker if they know their attorney will be away!

  93. steveccnv says:

    Declining the option just means a guy won’t make that guaranteed money, it doesnt mean they’re giving up on him.

  94. Tim Knight says:

    We traded a 6th this year and a 3rd and 4th next year for Carroo… but received a 2016 3rd to pick him.

    I’m not going to refer to him as LC3, he’s Carroooooo… because it’s so much cooler. 🙂

  95. steveccnv says:

    LC2, if that’s how you add it up Ken, but I say LC3, because we gave next year’s 3 and 4 and this year’s 6, our 3 was used for Drake earlier in the round.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      I tend to agree but how often do we see teams make a move when they have a windfall, who knows what they’re thinking but I agree I would put a very high value on any trade.

  108. Tim Knight says:

    Here’s our draft when you really look at it as a whole. The trade we made with the Eagles was not FA, it was a trade using a draft swap in the 1st rd and nothing more. Those two players do not count as FA signings.

    CB Maxwell
    LB Alonso
    1. OL Tunsil
    2. CB Howard
    3a. RB Drake

    or another words. here are the rules i made up as to why i think the draft was successful and we did add defense in the draft. and i am fine with it tim, but the bottom line it is just you making up rules to the draft.

    • Tim Knight says:

      None of those players would have been acquired without 2016 draft maneuvers, it was all draft compensation.

      Why are you trying to paint me into that corner again? Why can’t we look at it for what it is instead of trying to search for why it sucked or may not be that? I’ve been saying look at the draft as a whole and not how we got there for weeks and now that it played out pretty well, we need to conjure up the details in as many ways as possible to counter it?

    so based on your rules, that means when you evaluate the 2017 draft you have to look at the 2016 draft cause they gave up picks to get players. just admit it, you can go on and on and on with ‘oh i will include this to bolster my opinion’ i am not saying there is anything wrong with it but it is what you are doing. stop being so sensitive

  118. Randy says:

    Overall, I’m content with the picks. How we got them is done and over, I guess. I think we may end up with some guys Gase feels can make plays on offense. I’m really eager to see what this offense looks like by the middle of the season. I think folks are forgetting that it’s gonna take everyone awhile to adjust and start playing fast and well, I would think. I’m not gonna get too worried if our offense kinda sputters early on as long as they are showing progress and working hard. 6-8 games in, I’d hope to see them running a little smoother.
    ***
    I think we have a pretty veteran defense, and I expect them to step up this year and carry the team a little if necessary. I know we still have a lot of young players too, but we have Wake, Suh, Williams, Jones, Maxwell, Misi, Mitchell, as of now….we have plenty of high end vets who should be setting the tone and getting shit done. Alonzo has to come in and play well because our lbers were a liability last year. Jenkins needs to play better. Misi is what he is. I don’t think anyone can know what our backend is going to do this year. Whomever plays…we need to improve from last year.

  119. Tim Knight says:

    FA: DE Williams, DE Branch, DE Laing (CFL), S Abdul-Quddus, DT Chris Jones, OL Bushrod, OL Urbik, OT Young, QB Dysert, RB Pead, RB DT3.

    We didn’t go bonkers in FA this year but we just did that last year with Suh and then drafting Phillips at DT in the 2nd rd is also a big investment. Sometimes I feel we act like we have no defenders to even start with. LOL

  120. Rockphin says:

    Alonzo & Maxwell are draft compensation for a trade of draft picks. That are part of the draft. They were not part of free agency and we’re part of the plan to acquire experienced tallant without losing compensatory picks next year. They are most certainly part of the draft.

  125. getterdone says:

    Second-round LB Deion Jones will be the Falcons’ middle linebacker this season.
    Jones is a bit undersized at 6’1/222, but the Falcons want to get faster on defense. Jones will supply it after he blazed a 4.38 forty at LSU’s Pro Day. Incumbent MLB Paul Worrilow will either be a sub-package player or lose his job altogether.
    _____________________
    I’m anxious to see how Deion Jones does @ MLB

  126. yeah, I’d have to go with Tim on this one. We acquired Maxwell and Alonso by swapping our picks in the first. It’s pretty much the same as if it was done during the draft but it was done earlier.

  127. Randy says:

    gdp
    Whenever you seem bored, I’m always of a mind to talk QBs….just to be helpful. Lol

    • I’ll start. I really like the Doughty pick and think this guy is going to make the other qb’s we have behind RT expendable and the reason why I say that is because he’s another scheme fit. This offense in the passing game is going to be about short, controlled passing game with guys running short routes to keep the ball moving and then throwing pushing up the field when the opportunity presents itself. Where Doughty is concerned, that’s all he did in college and he was very successful doing it. The ball comes out of his hand very quickly, he makes decisions very fast and he puts the ball in a spot where it needs to be for his receivers to get yac. He’s not going to “rip” it like other qb’s will but what you see with him is a guy who makes quick decisions and can get the ball out fast. You see a guy who’s got really good pocket awareness and will move around in the pocket to buy time and he’s a guy who is always looking downfield even when he’s under pressure. He’ll hang in there to the very end even though he knows he’s going to take a shot. You can see that he was coached by Dan Marino in the way he plays the game. So, I’d say Moore, Dysert and Thomas won’t make it to the season.
      I’m not saying he’s going to replace Tannehill but I am saying that if you look at the way we approached the draft on the offensive side you can get a pretty good idea of what we’re going to try and accomplish and you can see why Doughty was picked.

      • steveccnv says:

        I agree, except Moore will be the backup, I can guarantee that. His cap is $1.4M and his dead money is $1.75M.

    and i rest my point. from the guy who will blame the qb for taking sacks cause it fits his point but wont give him credit when he escapes sacks cause it doesnt fit his point.

    there is really nothing wrong with it guys, just admit ‘yeah that is how i look at it cause it fits my point better’. i am not saying tim is wrong on the draft just saying he is adding things to make his point more valid.

    • Tim Knight says:

      So what you’re saying is if Saturn’s rings flew away like your tent did, it really didn’t happen, it was just my view to make it a better flying away of the rings and tent? LOL

    • it’s not about making the point more valid. If we got to draft day and we made the same trade we would all say we received Alonso and Maxwell as part of draft compensation for Philly moving up just as any players we would have acquired in the draft would be part of it if we received picks from Philly instead of players. draft compensation doesn’t need to be about players we drafted with picks we received.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Maybe our fortunes have changed with Tunsil falling to us. Can I think that for awhile until it all comes crashing down? LOL

  130. finfanrob says:

    then like i said there is no way to evaluate next years draft without looking at how some of the players this year do, cause we traded those pics for those players.

  131. finfanrob says:

    tim

    i think you bring up Saturn and my tent again the only thing you need to be concerned about where my tent lands is Uranus

  132. Randy says:

    All that really matters is how Maxwell and Kiko perform. Tunsil fell in our lap under unprecedented events. That was pure luck…not a plan by this FO when they made that trade. The trade they made…was giving up 5 spots in the top of the first…in any other draft we miss out on some of the players that people around here talked about the most. We gave up the chance to pick Conklin, Apple, Floyd, Hargreaves, Rankins….all players some folks here wanted. We got lucky….if Tunsil pans out. It happens. Take it and move on, but Kiko and Maxwell need to be significant players for us to make that a worthwhile trade.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      it was a bet that some one would fall
      Not that everyone they might want would be there

      If Tunsil didn’t slide Conklin would have
      Plus we could have had Jack or Ragland who ended up going in the 2nd
      We could have had Lee or Lawson who went later that round too

      The gamble wasn’t that Tunsil would fall
      It was that we were able to get a good player at 13 just as we would have at 8

      I’m sure they knew guys they liked would be gone
      But that was not the risk
      The risk was that you were jumping out of the top 10 and jumping down a tier in terms of prospects

      And the gamble paid off big time
      One of the top prospects fell

      It wasn’t just luck
      Some one would have been there at 13
      Luck was that it was Tunsil

    • If Tunsil didn’t have the video he goes top ten and then one of the other prospects falls to us. Maybe we get Conklin instead or maybe we had Lawson as the next player on our board. Maybe we wanted Jackson. We’ll never know.

    • steveccnv says:

      You can’t have your cake and eat it too Randy. You can’t use Conklin for your argument, is you’re going to say we got lucky with Tunsil. If Tunsil didn’t fall into our lap Conklin would’ve been available.

      It doesn’t matter if Alonso and Maxwell work out, the trade was a success, even without getting Tunsil. There’s risk with every trade, by making this trade, we didn’t have to use FA that’s mega expensive, and would’ve cost us our comp picks, and we got guys that fit the scheme. We got 2 starters, what more can you ask for?

      Why are you guys so negative about every little thing the FO tries to do? None of you downers have yet to answer my question about whether they’d take everything we’ve done before the draft or stay status quo.

  138. Randy says:

    Piggy,
    I agree with that, but they still slid back and took themselves out of contention for some premium talent. They also gave up better trade position in a trade-happy draft. Again, it’s all in how you value draft picks. They took a calculated risk, and they ended up face-first in a pile of roses as far as the player taken. We’ll see how the other end of it pans out. Hopefully Maxwell and Kiko come in and really perform well for us.

    silly randy just stick to evaluating qb’s

  141. Tim Knight says:

    In the last few years RB and even LB have become devalued. The game is played beyond their mark most of the time. On defense it’s pass rush first and don’t embarrass yourself against the run. Then cover and tackle some will ya! If we’re going to play base 25% of the time, nickel 50% and dime 25% of the time, why is RB and LB such a thing? Only 2-3 combined will be on the field 75% of the time.

    3 WRs and 1 TE/H-back is still the primary formation. What happens with 4 wide with any combo of personnel and a one back set? Empty backfield wide 5? This is where quick space needs to happen and release within 3 seconds.

    Okay, settle down. I’m getting too excited about our potential but I will not make any grand predictions. Wait and see. 🙂

    Gase wants to score early and often. Not that his vision is visionary, but I don’t think a stagnant offense will sit well with him. LOL

    Sorry, I hadn’t seen you ask. No, I would not have taken this draft before it started. While I see what they tried to do, it is not what I would have done. But, all that really matters now is whether or not these guys can perform.

    • steveccnv says:

      LOL, I asked about what was done before the draft, would you take it or stay status quo with last yrs team?

    Wyoming,
    Do I really need to go into how very little I care about how any player looked on the first day of practice? Lol

    I was always “cautiously optimistic” about him.

    just passing on information!
    Don’t know if it’s dog shit or shoe shine yet!
    we’ll see how it smells this season?

  147. steveccnv says:

    Can we post

  148. Randy says:

    wyoming,
    I gotcha, bud. I hope he balls out. He is a good ball player if healthy.

  149. steveccnv says:

    Some will just take whatever is written out there and run with it, if it backs their opinion. The Vikings trade 160 for them 220 for us, from the draft value chart.

  150. Tim Knight says:

    Randy, no doubt Tunsil fell into our lap. Grier said that he was #2 on our board and they didn’t expect him to fall like that, I think Ramsey was #1. What happened next I would imagine is they all looked at each other and said geez,.. Tunsil is there at #13. LOL

    Maybe our fortunes have changed. 🙂

  151. Randy says:

    steve
    Oh, well, that is all yet to be determined. I’m hopeful all the moves work out. I can’t say they have yet.

  152. Randy says:

    Tim,
    I agree! If our OL can miraculously become a real strength for this team, that will be huge in the development of this offense. A solid, reliable OL can give everyone else the time they need to get up to speed.

  153. Tim Knight says:

    In hindsight are any Dolphins fans willing to admit our trade with the Eagles turned out to be a coup at this time? 3 Starters just to take on a couple of contracts and then have a top 3 prospect fall to us regardless of the swap? LOL

    I guess we can’t call it a Unicorn intervention, but it’s close. LOL

  154. getterdone says:

    Piggy, & Randy, etc.
    Myles Jack was our pick @ #13 until they looked up & Tunsil was barreling right for them.
    He was the more sure thing & healthy.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I don’t think we weren’t taking Jack at #13, maybe Lawson, Jackson or Lee.

      • I don’t think it was either. I thinking we were THINKING someone like Conklin, Apple or Lawson was going to be there for us. And like Charlie Casserly said, “this is why you do your homework on every single player because you never know what will happen on draft day.

    huh??????????????? arent you the one who has been saying forever the oline isnt that bad? that the qb is to blame for some of how bad the oline looks. and now it is ‘miraculously’ if they can be a real strength

    Lol. I worded it that way just for you. You’re so predictable. The NLCs must need to be rotated.

  157. Randy says:

    There would have been all sorts of hel breaking loose on the board if they’d taken Jack…another player with significant injury flags….talented or not. Lol

    yep sure you did. oh you got me, you are just sssooooooo smart, well if you worded something just for me you cant be that smart. but ok i will play along……gosh darn it randy, you just fooled silly ole me, shucks all, good golly randy sure did fool lil ole me.

  159. Randy says:

    ffr,
    Funny, but that is just how I “hear” you when you post. Lol

    randy

    and i know you just fooled lil silly stupid me but i was wondering if you noticed the ??? marks in my post. i know i am not that bright and all but those mean a question. i wasnt making fun of you are anything i was asking you a question as to what you meant. but then again i am sooooo silly and probably need to go milk a nlc or something that there would be no way you would get me asking you a question and all.

    What ?’s??

  163. PFF Draft ‏@PFF_College · Apr 21

    Alabama RB Kenyan Drake forced one missed tackle for every 2.6 touches on offense, the best rate in this RB class (min. 100 touches)

    What ?’s??

    if used correctly one really kinky sex toy that helps bind and pleasure a woman at the same time.

  165. So, here’s how the trade to get Howard went down. Baltimore held the #36 which it traded to Jacksonville in exchange for the #38 and a fifth. Jacksonville used that pick to take Jack. Baltimore then traded the #38 it acquired from Jacksonville in their trade to Miami so we could take Howard. So, the idea that we traded up to try to get a player before the teams ahead of us picked is incorrect.

    i dont have to all the time. i just have to for you otherwise you would never be able to keep up with the conversation. but if you are think you are in your big boy pants now i will stop and hope you can keep up with the conversation

  168. Randy says:

    Grier said they did it because they expected a run on CBs. Whether it was because the teams in front of us may have taken them or teams were trying to trade up to get them, he didn’t really elaborate clearly.

    and that is why she charges you a whole nickle. you make her head go side to side. just let her head go up and down and then it is only 2 cents

    come on randy you are gonna have to do a lot better then insulting my sister to win at this.

  174. Tim Knight says:

    Lou, who was #1 on our board? We know Tunsil was #2, Grier said it.

    After watching GOT tonight, I got my wife to give me a Carroooooooo . . . She wouldn’t do it, but she did it after GOT. Woo hoo! I told her instead of a conch, I’m going to bring a shofar, and I’ll blow it every time Carroo makes a catch. For those of you who have no idea what a shofar is, this is what the one I have looks like.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Weird thing happened. I watched last week’s episode followed by this week’s episode only to have it be different 2 hours later. I don’t want to be a spoiler here but WTF?!!!!

    I’m out too. I am old…no stamina anymore.

  177. getterdone says:

    For the guys out west…I’m surprised no one signed UDFA Mitch Matthews from BYU. 6’6 215 blazing fast WR/TE who really turned heads in Utah

  178. getterdone says:

    Mike, shofar as I know, you’re gonna have to feed us all every time you blow that thing?

  180. uwantwat says:

    Tim…I;m suing you for your claim of Maxwell & Alonso not being a F/A trade. I pointed out this on draft day.Mike was being his usual negative self and he wouldn’t have it either. I made the point over and over that this was an outstanding draft for the Phins. THIS FACT ELUDES MOST HERE. We got the players we wanted to fit our scheme. Surely that is the whole point of picking players.

    Then you get the blokes who bitch about using picks to move around, my answer to them is who fucking cares. We got the players we wanted. Then there are those who bitch about not covering all of our needs. I say what needs(holes) we could already field a team that could win games. We have added serious upgrades,how can that be a bad thing?

    Finally, I got laughed at for suggesting that PK in the 3rd, well I had the last laugh, he was taken in the 2ND and the Bucs GAVEUP 2 PICKS to move up to get him. Are they getting hammered for doing that?

    I had to leave this board before I seriously lost it, that how bad all the negativity was. Hell evenn the midget WR has grown on me after watching his highlight film and reading the reviews.

  181. uwantwat says:

    My apologies, I just read my post and decided it reeks of an OD rant for that I’m really upset with myself.

  182. Looking back on the mock I did for the Phins I got two correct; just not the round. I picked Carroo in the 4th and Grant in the 7th. https://professorlousmiamidolphinsblog.org/2016/04/25/professor-lous-2016-miami-dolphins-mock-draft/

  183. Walter Football actually had us taking Drake, Duarte and Doughty. Not bad. Most mocks are off the charts.
