    hi guys im a first time poster here so dont kill me on this 1. ive been on this website getting the latest dolphins info for a while now! well what i have to say is that this past saturday my g/f best friend met chris long @ a club and all he would tell her is that he is the # 1 overall pick and he plays or is playing for the Miami Dolphins. i dont know if parcells and co already contacted him and told him we are taking him with the #1 pick or he was just trying to look impress, but according to what she told me hes a dolphins. take it for what its worth. thanks

    While I agree the Fins will drafting Long, it will be Jake and not Chris. I highly doubt he would start telling people he is the #1 pick. He thinks he is the #1 and for good reason, but I dont believe this story for a minute.

    I just gave a bum some change and he told me his name was Lucas and that he was the starting QB for the Dolphins. I am skeptical but he did look really shifty. ;)

    I'm sure Reggie Bush told dozens of women the same thing a few years back when he was 'certain' he's be taken by Houston at #1.

    I'm wouldn't doubt that the Dolphins FO has talked to Chris and put the idea into his head that he's going to be a Dolphin, but there's so many scenarios that will take place between now and draft day, I'm sure not even Parcells has settled on ONE player yet.

    Not that I am disagreeing with the report. It could very well be true. However, I will remind people that Braylon Edwards through he was going to Miami until he heard the words "Ronnie Brown" come after "the Miami Dolphins select"

    Sounds like a poorly executed pickup line to me. Just give me a Long, I don't care which one anymore. They both fill needs.

    I believe it is common practice for the team with the #1 pick to contact several of the top candidates for preliminary contract negotiations... it's also known as a smoke screen so other teams that pick near the top have no idea who will get drafted ahead of their pick... it helps with trading :)

    No one is trying to knock you... it's just that as a general rule of thumb on this and most other boards is no link, no love. ... And in a case such as yours, it can only be taken with a grain of salt that it was a friend of a friend who claims to have talked to him.... get what I mean? Lots of stuff gets posted on here based on conversations people had who have "insider" information, and more often than not it never pans out.

    That said, you could very well be telilng the truth, and I agree, C.Long is probably our #1 target right now... but a LOT can change between now and April.

    There is no doubt that if Miami is not able to trade their pick, Chris will be the favorite to go #1. Dolphin fans that want someone else can talk all they want about taking

    -another QB, if Beck proves himself (He has the skills to do so), Miami will not take one until late 2nd.

    -another RB, but if Ronnie show to be back (All reports say he is ahead of schedule), Miami will not take another RB.

    - an O-linemen who's skills fit best on the right side.

    - another DT, because free agency has somewhat fixed that area for us for the time being.


    There might still be a chance Miami goes with someone else at #1 overall, but it is doubtful.

    ....excuse me...but how excatly is Jake Longs skills set for the right side???

    at Michigan he only let one player by on both sides once,each.He played equally well...so how is it that he is only qualified for RT???

    Not to mention he even said he can play LT...Todd McShays projects hell be a LT....Mel Kiper Jr. projects he'll be a LT and even Mike Mayock said he is the number 1 LT....So,unless you have other deep information that he in only suited for RT,you can't say he is absolutely one thing....

    Pretty shallow statement if you ask me....

    Complete BS. Complete utter BS. somebody at the club tried to talk him up like that....but it is complete BS!!!!

    First off if Jason Taylor hasn't even talked to Parcells about HIS future -do you really think Chris Long knows his??? NO WAY!!!

    second, It seems very likely Atlanta will be in a position to move up and draft Ryan (as long as they deem him to be the best QB available). So that being the case how will Long be #1???

    Third, n the days leading up to the draft there will be two or three guys that we negotiate with to have them signed before they are drafted. That is just a plain FACT. If we told Long he is the pick - then we can't very well negotiate the pick and the contract with him now can we????

    Fourth - our pick won't even be Long - it will be Vernon Gholston (ok I'm 60/40 on this one lol between Long and Gholston)

    I agree man - the guy is a right tackle - I don't care what they have said...they talked about Jordan Gross as left tackle - I know he was playing right tackle (perhaps he played left this year don't know - no I think Terry did)....Robert Gallery was a Left Tackle right???? my *** the guy is barely a guard.

    I'm not saying the guy can't play left tackle eventually - he may be able to. Right now the guy IS a right tackle (everyone always wants to project if they can - to left tackle) In Longs case the length of his arms and size of hands is an advantage - and would help him play left side. But the guy isn't as good as Joe Thomas right now - doesnt have the best feet, and when I saw him against Gholston two years in a row, and the guy just kept whiffing and was an open gate. Gholston COMPLETELY DOMINATED the game itself. Michigan had 140 total yards in that game - did you see Michigan against Florida??? 500 yards. based on that game ALONE it would be STUPID to pick Long before Gholston (when picking teams do you pick the guy who can beat the other one??? as a kid). Jake Long is a right tackle - don't care what anybody projects him too

    I'm not saying it wasn't being said at the bar - it probably WAS!!! But I explained how unless Chris Long is a liar - it certainly didn't come out of his mouth - unless he was just drinking and was like....oh yeah I'm going #1 to the dolphins...I know it...etc - wishful kind of thinking on his part.

    My point was Parcells never told him this - just not a chance.

    Tho I do believe that the second hand info came to you that way and it was being said.

    For the record I believed the Wilford rumors- don't know why that guy was getting flamed....all he said was take it or leave it, I have inside info (obviously more inside than my girlfriends bf bf bf said....lol)....guys were asking for links and **** - so stupid - obviously no links lol

    some of you guys are a-holes...take it for what it's worth, don't bash him. the dude is posting for the first time. why would he come in here and just start making sh*t up? And yeah, if they saw him at a bar, he prob was drinking, and kinda pumped about the draft and exaggerated that he'll be #1. However, I highly doubt that BP has told Long that, but then again, he's just a college kid tryin to get some action from the ladies.

    You tell your girlfriend to tell Chris to pay attention more to FA and the team reports and he will get the hint...MIA isn't eyeing Chris Long.

    Let me help him out: MIA just tried "hard" to sign Calvin Pace! Hint. MIA isn't planning on drafting Chris Long. MIA already has Joey Porter. Hint. MIA isn't planning on drafting Chris Long. MIA already has Jason Taylor. Hint. MIA isn't planning on drafting Chris Long. BP has called Quentin Moses a keeper. Hint. MIA isn't planning on drafting Chris Long. MIA just signed OLB Reggie Torbor. Hint. MIA isn't drafting Chris Long. MIA just signed another OLB, Charlie Anderson. Hint. MIA isn't drafting Chris Long. MIA has Matt Roth. Hint. MIA isn't planning on drafting Chris Long. MIA is pursuing another OLB, Blaylock. Hint. MIA isn't planning on drafting Chris Long.

    Clue: MIA decided "not" to pursue any OT's via FA. Hint. MIA is fixing its OL via the draft. MIA has an open spot at its most important position, QB. Hint. They are eyeing a QB in this draft, early. MIA is not drafting Chris Long.

    Clue: Chris Long is too short/small to play DE. Hint. MIA isn't planning on drafting Chris Long.

    Word of advice: Chris Long, stop drinking so much and stop using MIA as a way of getting girls in the club....Clue for your friend...your girlfriend was possibly flirting with Chris Long at the club and he was using that line to get her digits. :winkwink:
