    Odrick was a luxury pick if he can gather his marbles
    he may give the dolphins some extra sacks something missing from anyone not named wake..

    Odrick was a luxury pick at a time when we had real needs. I like him as a player, but he was absolutely the wrong pick.

    Odrick will be a good player, but there were other needs that the Dolphins could have, and SHOULD HAVE addressed.

    yeah, if only we could get back the Odrick, Merling, White, and Turner picks back... wishful thinking, but it'd be nice.

    people give up too soon on picks. patrick white yes, but odrick is no wasted pick at all. just speculating in offseason. thats all it is. something to talk about.

    Jared Odrick is a *****. He should have been able to play through those injuries.

    The NE bust has to sting pretty bad for them. They trade up with GB to take Chad Jackson, and GB chooses Greg Jennings with NE's pick. Ouch!

    Well Im sure NE has been ok because they know how to run a football team. They have their share of misses but get the most out of thier playes

    Say what you want about the Odrick pick but if this guy pans out he will be a beast. He is a former interior lineman who has the quickness of a D end and a relentless motor. I know we have Langford/Soliai/Starks but I am excited to see what Odrick can bring to the table along the Dline

    Unless he turns out to be Haloti Ngata, it was a bad draft pick. We had too many needs to pick another DE.

    It's a chicken and the egg type conversation. A good QB will make more plays to help you win, but can the QB make those plays without protection? But if you have protection, and a mediocre QB, you won't have many big plays etc...

    Odrick will be an outstanding pick for us over the next few years. Yes we needed help at other areas, & qb wasn't an issue at the start of last season. I will guarantee that 95% of this fanbase were happy to have either cp or ch start last season. To say we needed a qb last year is flat out wrong.

    Odrick will not be a wasted pick. Pat white was a wasted pick.

    I don't see how Odrick is considered a bubble player instead of Henne; so much more hinges on Henne's status and improvement going forward. Also, Odrick's major issue right now is his health, not talent/ability.
