Dolphins second selection in the 5th round- Jordan Tripp
Good to hear I guess..
not real sure i've even heard this guys name before, anybody got any insight?
Solid pick, Hickey doing damage in this draft.
QB / RB to finish the day
Good write up looks like a good pick
Should come in and compete for playing time and do well on special teams...
I am going to ***** about this pick even though I am barely smart enough to wipe my ***
thats our 5th captain lol
Solid pick. Potential sub package guy, maybe play the WILL
Jordan Tripp, OLB
Didn't look out of place at the Senior Bowl. Fluid, instinctive and physical. Best at 4-3 OLB. Short arms and small hands.
Lots of good football players from Montana. I like the pick.
Sounds like the Eagles were interested in him.
Wheeler better tighten up.
This dude will eat his lunch for that starting spot if he comes in playing like last year.
Man...love what I read about these high character guys. They just look like they belong in the NFL lol That's without even seeing them play.
I'm very familiar with him as a U of Montana guy, high motor, doesn't take plays off, he could be our next Zach Thomas
Big and fast. Don't know much about him but he had better cone drills than Khalil Mack, Mosely and Borland at the combine. Should at least be a ST upgrade.
finally a lb yeah buddy. still want skov
Totally agree with the grade. Great pick!
They liked him on NFL Network. Say he has been playing I-LB, is a sideline to sideline player, really good special teams player, and has potential to start.
Jordan Tripp | OLB, Montana
Tripp´s combination of size, length and fluidity make him a versatile athlete worth considering at several positions in the front seven. Great value for the Dolphins here in the late fifth.
Was a 3rd/4th rounder according to CBS. Think we got a steal here.
Daniel Jerimiah was just raving about him said he's fast & a solid player really liked the pick!
Whoever scouts Montana for the Dolphins seems to have a direct line to the GM because it seems like we grab a Montana guy every year

so basically the exact opposite of Wheeler, got ya, I endorse this pick
Miami Dolphins: Jordan Tripp, OLB, Montana: A Grade
The Dolphins were expected to choose a linebacker much earlier than this - perhaps even as high as the first round. It's late for one, but it helps that Jordan Tripp provides great value. Tripp probably should have been off the board in the Round 3-4 range.
Props to Hickey, he hit on everything I was looking for in this draft. . Now it's time for Phibin to do his job.
Looking forward to the 2015 draft
He is a good coverage LB.

Jordan Tripp: "Football has been in my blood since I was a little kid... it's always been my love and passion." #FinsUp
Scouts left over from the Parcells regime.
STRENGTHS: Possesses broad shoulders, a slim waste and a powerful lower half, looking the part of an NFL linebacker. Highly instinctive defender. Seemingly is always around the ball. Recovered 10 fumbles over his career.
Quickly steps up in run support, slipping past would-be blockers to meet backs in the hole. Tough. Willing to sacrifice his body to take on the double-team and will attempt to build a pile to jam things up for his teammates to make the easy play.
Good lateral agility to avoid and has enough strength and arm-length to shed. Patient tackler. Breaks down well, waiting for the ballcarrier to commit before latching on for the drag-down tackle.
Good vision and recognition in coverage. Balanced and fluid when dropping back, presenting a surprisingly tough matchup for running backs and tight ends. Helped himself with a solid week of practice at the Senior Bowl.
WEAKNESSES: Despite his reputation, plays with a little more finesse than physicality. Grabs and swings ballcarriers to the ground, on occasion, rather than accelerating through them.
Loses containment responsibilities by getting too caught up with blockers. Missed all but three games of the 2011 season with a shoulder injury which required season-ending surgery.
COMPARES TO: K.J. Wright, OLB, Seattle Seahawks - Like Wright, Tripp possesses the instincts to play in the middle but his fluidity and length could also see clubs view him as more effective on the perimeter. A selection outside the top 100 is likely, but Tripp could develop into a surprising starter.
Have a feeling Tripp will be a household name.
Whenever Montana needed a big play on Defense Tripp's name was usually involved, I'm beyond excited about him, don't be surprised if he's starting at some point.
Yeah but Walt is a basement dwelling loser, so he's prob wrong.
great pick, sounds like a good kid that is an immediate upgrade on ST. hopefully he will show up in training camp, learn the playbook and give us the option to kick Ellerbe to the outside in the immediate future. love this kid.
"The Dolphins' west coast scout Adam Engroff is one of the best scouts in the NFL. If he gives Jordan Tripp a thumbs up....he can play."
Hope he is as good as another lb we got in the 5th round a while back.:d-day:
This is a very good pick, nice consolation prize after not getting mosley or Borland…It looks like Hickey likes leaders and "football players"...
