    I hate to say it but I believe we will stay at number 9 and most likely pick Levi Brown because we do need to improve the OL and OT is the main point. I believe we will work something out for Trent Green. If Quinn fals that would be great, but I doubt it. I only hope we can pull someone like Stanton out, that would be awsome. I would say lets go OT,WR,QB with the first 3 picks. I know we need secondary help to there is no doubt about it, but I hate to say it we are probably going to have that Unsexy OT pick! GO FINS!!


    I HOPE NICK SABAN GETS BEATEN LIKE A DRUM!!

    I appreciate the love, but the truth is with the exception of Taylor, Thomas, and Brown. Any players we pick up in the first day is going to be an upgrade and I wish trading down is a possiblity but again we can say thats what we need to do, but getting a fair trade is harder to do than most think. I think we will have a good draft this year and hopefully it will be a good season for the fins. Atleast I hope so!

    I have to agree... I have had Levi Brown wearing fins jersey for the past 3 weeks.. I also think Kevin Kolb and Jason Hill will be wearing Fins jerseys too.. At least thats how I see the draft winding out for us.

    What's wrong with a tackle in the first round? It's not a sexy pick but it's a muscle pick. Football is won in the trenches. I would take Richmond Webb over any other dolphin first round pick since Marino. Levi brown would be a very good pick. Sure he has a flaw but every player available at #9 each year has a flaw.

    That's all B.S. if they weren't high on him then why did they interview him at the combine and have him in for a visit this past week.:wink:

    I agree, our position needs are: 1st pick; either OL or QB, and 2nd pick; either OL or QB..I think we need to draft at least 2 OL this year and pick up a WR in the later rounds...This years draft is endless with WR, no use wasting an early pick on one when there is a glaring need at OL and QB.

    I'm not a fan of Brown at this point, but it could happen

    Luda there is nothing wrong with an OL as your first pick, I played OL and I have nothing but love for the hogs up front, but its fun watching a draft where you pick up your next big thing like when we drafted Ronnie Brown. I have no problem with Brown we need OL help in the worst kind of way. But I think we should put these high hopes of drafting a QB with the number nine pick and realize that there are plenty of good QBs available in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. I cant wait till Saturday and hope we can truly start to rebuild the Miami Dolphin organization.

    Nothing wrong with picking a LT, the question is: Who do they have rated higher Brown or Staley?
    I trust coach H input in this dilema, I would not be upset at all if one of those 2 guys ends up being our 1st Rd pick.
    And yes, with our 2nd rd lets go with somebody like Stanton? Kolb? Beck?

    Don't believe a lot of what's being said at this time about a specific player coming from a specific team. Most of it is smoke screen!!!
    No team is going to say how any player is rated in their board at this time.

    And also remember...they spoke with Brown in the Senior Bowl, the combine, and also Brown came to Davie to meet with the Phins brass.

    to stay at 9, I hope they would get Brown, if they wanted Staley I would think they should be able to trade down in some way because I havent seen Staley projected any higher than 20 but than again you never know and yea I dont know what strikes me but I think Stanton would be a steal if we can nab him in round 2.

    I agree - its not sexy but it seems to be likely. The only reasons I see us deviating from this plan is A) if Quinn falls to us, and B) its pretty well known that Houck and Mueller seem to agree that the OL can be built with mid-round picks and higher picks should be used on skill positions. That being said, if they think Levi is worth the #9, I don't think they'll have any problem taking him.

    Yeah, I hear what you are saying. Gotta love those big guys sacrificing themselves for the greater good. I agree....I would love to have Quinn there but the chances may be less than 50/50 (my gut feeling is that the Browns or Vikings pick him). So, in that case Brown is probably the guy and I would be happy with that. I like Kolb at probably our 2nd (#60) round or 3rd round pick.

    yea but to move up from 9 to 6 you are going to have to give up one of the two 2nd round picks and I would rather get us a solid LT because QBs are more hit or miss than anyone. Either way I am going to be happy as long as we dont draft like we did during the Wanstead years!

    I concur. We have to go offense on the first day of the draft

    The NFL Network showed the Senior Bowl over again today. Levi Brown consistantly stifles his man and meets them head on everytime with long arms and a great punch. OL are hard to watch and it takes a dedicated eye while not paying attention to everything else.

    The crap being said about Brown is rediculous. Brown is a great LT. There I said it, but because I have watched him closely and his power and punch are second to none. Better than Joe Thomas. Levi Brown would be such an awesome pick for us and would solidify the Tackle spot for sure. We could even rotate him and Alabi a little but make no mistake, Levi Brown would be well worth the #9 pick. And sexy is when your QB never has to look over his shoulder to wonder if the DE is bearing down on him.

    Not to mention Levi's penchant for going downfield and kicking some butt. Ronnie Brown would benefit nicely as well as Trent Green and John Beck.:D

    Yeah I think Levi Brown is a good possibility......everyone talks about trading up or trading down, but it rarely happens. Brown will probably be the BPA and we could use O-line help. I think we will take Beck or Kolb at QB in the 2nd round.

    A Franchise LT is very Sexy, but what I mean is when you think about finding franchise player in the draft, no matter what the team you think about QB, RB, WR, LB guys like that those are the commonly refered "Sexy Picks" but we all know if we find our future LT there will be nothing sexier!

    Each team interviews many players at the combine...and just because they bring in a player...doesn't mean they will select him. Remember last year...how many players did the Dolphins bring in...and pass on during the draft?

    We know the Dolphins have talked to at least 6 QB's so far...but very likey they will only draft one and bring in another as a free agent.
