Shazier is such a flavour of the moment thing.... I'd be very surprised
The guy is super fast and super productive, plays a position of need and is a 3 down LB. We could do a lot worse than Shazier, if Zack Martin is gone my preference is WR Brandin Cooks but I'd be fine with Shazier especially considering how awful and overpriced Philip Wheeler is. Turns out he's the sone of the Dolphins' team preacher, that's an interesting twist to me, especially given the crapitude of Bullygate last year.
This guy is 6-1, 240 and ran a 4.38 at the combine. Very, very quick feet and obviously fast. And a playmaker.
I'm aware who he is but I stand by the comment this has popped up the last few days before the draft and very much seems a smokescreen to me
I like it. **** im just excited for thursday
The Ju'Wuan James rumors popped up a few days ago, is that a smokescreen, or the Kouandjio rumors? Who knows. Between the three my preference would be Kouandjio, Shazier and then James. James is a tough one for me, because from the first time I watched him until now I see the same thing- a solid, well rounded OT who doesn't do anything especially well, but he's good. A solid player, but is he a difference maker and a first round caliber pick? I don't know. 2nd or 3rd rd? Sure. I don't really buy the line of thought that Kouandjio can't play well in a ZBS, but then again I would have preferred Cordy Glenn over Jonathan Martin despite the ZBS fit argument. Glenn can play ball, bottom line, and to me Kouandjio is in the same vein. Shazier is a wickedly fast, explosive, disruptive play maker, bottom line. I'd be ok with him, and I'd prefer Shazier at WOLB, Dion Jordan at SOLB and Misi in the middle. Or maybe a MLB like Preston Brown from this draft.
he didnt run at the combine. 4.38 was at his proday. if youre going to proselytize for the guy, at least get the facts straight.
I have to assume that you are related? Being perfectly serious.
My take as well. Tomorrow it will be one of the WRs.
Given some of your comments that last few days regarding Kouandjio, RGII and Dr. Andrews I have to wonder to what extent you know what's going on with this situation. I also have to wonder to what extent you've watched Kouandjio and that Alabama offensive line maul and abuse opponents over the last three years. And to what extent you realize where Kouandjio was rated before the combine and what look to be either false or exaggerated knee health reports. And no, I'm not related to Kouandjio. Not even practically related, as Alabama was to Drexl here. Kind of, in a street way:
Hey, Alabama was a first round pick, at least that year.
Kouandjio aside, thank you to the UK for Gary Oldman. Phenomenal actor, imo second only to Daniel Day Lewis, loved him in The Professional as well. DDL- There Will Be Blood, Gangs of New York, Last of the Mohicans, My Left Foot, The Unvearable Lightness of Being, he's the best. Haven't seen Lincoln yet, I heard he was great in it.
another miami mistake...
I like Ju'Wuan James as well, but I don't think Miami looks that way at #19. If the team trades down with say SF then James at #30 is right around his value. Same with Kluandijio. So I guess if the top 4 OT's are off the board, the Dolphins go in a different direction -- Mosley, Shazier, Cooks, a corner?
You forgot Christian Bale, Peter Sellers, Rowan Atkinson, Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley, Sean Connery, John Clesse, Liam Neeson, Anthony Hopkins etc...?
All good, DDL is the best.
That makes no sense, why would we smokescreen for a guy that has generated no other known interest in the first round. If we we really wanted to smokescreen we would be talking more about the WR's and CB's. Those guys are the ones that are being sought after right now.
This one sounds legit, I'm starting to think more and more that Shazier will be the pick. And I can't say that I'd mind it at all.
I can only assume that you tampon was crimping up on you as you wrote this.
The phins have not said a worf about Zach MArtin, nothing about Mosely, nothing about Moses and nothing about TE/CB/S.
Smokescreen is here.
