    so in one day our defense has gone from OLD to younger and more versitile now sign us some safetys and corners and go heavy offense in draft first few rounds.

    Was a DT at Maryland, played next to Haynesworth and at end. Was very raw coming out. He's 6'3, 312 and he was 19 when he was drafted, thus despite being a 4 year guy, he's still only 24/25.

    randy is decent. max is too slow to block parcells - but his size is just sooooo tempting.

    It's hard to get on the field when you're behind All-Universe NT Albert Haynesworth.

    I don't think Miami touches him with a bargepole. Very overrated guy. Mo Williams is the guy they like.

    Plug in Smiley, Torbor, Ferguson, Starks and Pace, and notice how all of these additions are front 7 defensive players and OL, while a lot of people were focusing on WR, safeties and CBs? Welcome to the Bill Parcells architecture.

    Think how much much beef the Dolphins have added to their front 7. You might be able to run around a Parcells team, but you absolutely will not out muscle him and push him around at the point of attack.

    Thank you, im so sick of that guys name ocming up. he reminds me of shelton an underachiever.

    As for the D linemen starks, what role is starks to play here? DT? LE? RE?
    BTW is Mo for LT?RT? or G? From waht i know he did well at G last year when he was called upon.

    Randy Starks is a good move. Real young with good size. Could really develop into something.

    Starks and R. Wright as our 3-4 DE's looks real promising.

    Boomer. What do you think a signing of Pace would mean for Jason Taylor, Joey Porter and Chris Long?

    Also, has your opinion of Jake Long changed lately? I am still very leery of him despite the combine performance, but I am wondering if you have changed your mind.

    Hey Boomer, if Pace is signed do you see Chris Long still being considered?

    Thanks Boomer. What about Ferguson? Is he healthy enough to hold down the tackle spot temporarily while we mold a draftee?

    i posted a scouting report on starks last night, he sounds very promising i will post it agan

    randy starks

    Assets
    Possesses an excellent size/speed/athleticism combination. A fast, light-footed 300+ pounder with a quick first step. Stays low out of his stance and plays with great leverage. Gets a good push and can collapse the pocket. Has some pass rush moves and uses his height to bat down balls. Makes plays in pursuit. A solid tackler. Can drop into coverage on zone blitzes. Hard working and coachable.


    Flaws

    Will get over-aggressive at times and will be taken out of some plays. Must learn to keep his feet moving and to use his strength more effectively. Needs refinement. Tries to beat the snap count and will jump offsides.



    Career potential

    Excellent prospect.

    It certainly makes things more interesting. Unless they're going to cut Joey Porter.

    I get the feeling like we will be going offense in this draft bigtime.

    Parcells wasting no time rebuilding Dolphins
    Within the first 12 hours of the free-agent signing period, the Miami Dolphins already had signed one player and scheduled at least three visits, and it would be no surprise to see them sign at least four free agents by the end of the day.

    The Dolphins signed former Jets free-agent tight end Sean Ryan to a one-year deal and were expecting visits from Arizona linebacker Calvin Pace, Oakland quarterback Josh McCown and Tennessee defensive tackle Randy Starks. Talks with Starks, for one, are heating up.
