    Solid pick, Hickey doing damage in this draft.

    QB / RB to finish the day

    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.

    Wheeler better tighten up.

    This dude will eat his lunch for that starting spot if he comes in playing like last year.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This is a very good pick, nice consolation prize after not getting mosley or Borland…It looks like Hickey likes leaders and "football players"...
