    Just went to youtube and checked out some video. I remember him a little as a Syracuse fan last year. He makes end zone plays. Deceptive speed at 4.5/40.

    6'3" 210 lbs and was wanted by one bill belichick. If he was out there this past sunday, Bess being out a little longer might be a blessing.

    People are looking at Keenan Allen in this draft, I am starting to think this guy is a better version of what we are looking for.

    Her seems to be a good kid too. Could Ireland score again? NO.....not possible.

    Sweet. And I was worried about our receiving corps.

    We can enter 2013 with Mathews and Binns on the outside and Thigpen in the slot. Problem solved.... Time to move on to the next position of need.

    Sounds like a golden plan. We should draft offensive linemen with each and every pick and hopefully we hit on one LT and than we do the same next year if RT does not pan out. Thank Jesus for Jeff Ireland.

    Ireland loves acorns. It would be nice if he actually could draft a playmaker for once instead of constantly churning players 50-53 every freaking week. How many times are you going to find a Pro Bowler on the waiver wire???

    I dont get this attitude. Would you rather not have players like Wake, Bess or Thigpen?

    Ireland has been here for five years...you named THREE players in his defense...three...and only one of them is an elite game changer. I do not understand your attitude sir.

    I agree. There has been some decent talent here that was unexpected.

    However, in light of that, there's no way we can possibly expect Binns to have any kind of expectations. He's obviously a player with some sort of limitations. Maybe he does have talent, but hasn't found a way to put it together. Some players bounce around a few organizations before either being developed properly or simply getting it.

    Maybe Binns can be one of those players. Though, if I were a betting man, I wouldn't count on it. Receiver 100% still needs to be one of the main focuses, if not the main focus of this offseason.

    Just out of curiosity, did you people think that WAKE would be any good? After all, wasn't he cut by the NY GIANTS...and no one picked him up...and he had to go to Canada to play football?

    Actaully he was cut by Giants and was out of football for two years before he went to Canada, but Wake is what is known as an anomaly and it doesnt happen very often.

    Every team makes moves at the bottom of the roster during the season. People here just don't follow when the Patriots sign Greg Salas, Jeff Tarpinian, Alex Silvestro, Mike Rivera or Derrick Martin. If Miami signed these guy people here would be whining.

    Since when did Marcus Thigpen and Davone Bess become "top players?"

    Since Thigpen became the third best returner in the NFL and Bess took on a huge roll in our offense and became a play his team can always depend on.

    I strongly disagree. Both are solid yet unspectacular. It's not like these guys are anywhere near the level that Wake is.

    I know he was penciled in as the starter in Cincy opposite of AJ Green, but he fell out and they started playing the younger WRs more. I would love to find a diamond in the rough, and have our #2 WR to pair with who ever we draft/sign to be our #1. We can dream cant we? Maybe a fresh start is what he was missing? HOPEFULLY!

    Kid has a nice body and did some good work in college. Maybe we can spark him. Next year WR corps:

    1) Allen (1st Round WR pick)
    2) Bowe
    3) Hartline
    4) Binns or (or a 2nd or 3rd Round WR pick)
    5) Bess
    6) Matthews or Thigpen

    You like?

    Once upon a time, the PITTSBURGH STEELERS were the "doormats" of the NFL. (This is 1955) All they had was an aging FULLBACK (FBs used to run the ball in the NFL) named JOHN HENRY JOHNSON. They drafted a QB in the 6th Round, and cut him preseason. WEEB EWBANK, then HC of the BALTIMORE COLTS, saw him playing "semi-pro" ball, and signed him up. Years later, he, JOHNNY UNITAS, is in the HOF.

    Don't knock "acorns". Sometimes, an acorn becomes an Oak tree...just ask some older STEELERS fans. You just NEVER KNOW.

    just a little blown away by the attitude and yet you think some kid in college is going to just tear it up right away.

    Draft Allen? As if he were going to be any more ahead of the curve than this kid? He already has played this year. Its a numbers game were they go with another position heading into the playoffs. They released him with the thought they would bring him right back.

    Apparently, Jeff Ireland watches the wire like Belechick does. Not saying he is better, just saying he stays plugged in. I have been a finfan since 1971. I have seen some pretty crappy GM's in miami history. Ireland is not one of them. I know that may be a bit hard to handle since he really pissed some people off with the prosititute but it is what it is.....

    Any WR we draft will take time to develope. No one in this draft will take over day one. Just hope you all understand that. High hopes for any WR on your dream list will not solve our problems. Only your fantasy. Did any round one WR have big impact this year?

    Allen won't be better than bowe in his rookie season he isn't some andre j/calvin type of a prospect. ​ How the hell is binns better than bess?

    ---------- Post added at 07:48 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:47 PM ----------

    This lol at expecting allen to be on bowe level in his first year, lol at expecting a rookie to a true number 1 in the first place.

    Didn't say Allen would be better than Bowe. My point was, I want the young top rated drafted WR (whoever that is) to start day one....don't care if he is the #1 or #2.

    As far as Bess, love the guy, but if Binns can get his head on straight - I'll bet you he scores more than Bess does. We need WR's that can score and get YAC. Bess - although a Finheaven God - cannot do either with 4.7 speed.

    If you can't score or get YAC as a Miami Dolphin WR - you should be demoted down the depth chart. As both Bess and Hartline should be.

    you said if Binns "can get his head on straight". Are you saying he had offield issues? Cus I was looking for info on him and didnt see anything after a google.

    Good to see him get some game time. We need to see what these guys have before the offseason.

    Agreed.

    I could live with Allen in the 1st. Though, Eifert in the first and Wheaton (Ore St) in the 3rd might IMO be a better cure for the offensive anemia.

    I don't be believe he did - by that I meant simply, if he can step his game up....i.e be a pro.

    Obviously he did not do what he needed to do to stick in Cincy - I don't know if it was his routes, desire to learn, grasp of the offense - but whatever he needs to do to stick and produce on an NFL roster - he needs to do it here in Miami or he will be sent packing again.
