    With Parkey signing with the Bears, keep an eye on the draft where the Dolphins maybe targeting
    Florida kicker Eddy Pineiro.

    He was the most accurate kicker in college this year with a 94% success rate and easily has the strongest leg in college football this year where he demonstrated it at the Combine blasting his Kick offs into the stands and connecting on a 60 yard FG with 12 yds to spare inside Lucas Stadium. All the other kickers were short on that attempt, by the way.
    He is a Miami kid whose favorite team is the Miami Dolphins and he makes no secret to everyone about it! He interviewed with the Dolphins at the Combine and made sure they knew that the Dolphins were his favorite team and that it would be a dream come true if the Dolphins drafted him!

    Can someone edit the title and get rid of the extra "K"? lol

    Worth a shot. If we can get him in the 6th or 7th, shoot for it

    hopefully we use a draft pick on him so another team will not. If he's that good, a team may draft him. I wouldn't pull a Tampa Bay and draft him too early, but draft him I would.

    I'd rather get a kicker who will surely miss with the game on the line. We need to stop winning these close meaningless games when we clearly aren't going anywhere. Possibly cost us a franchise QB this year.

    If we can get him in a later round (5-7), fine by me. Just don't over-draft a kicker.

    UDFA kickers are a dime a dozen, bring in 10 of them and let them fight it out for the spot.

    Maybe NOW I understand Parkey.

    I did not even consider Eddy. Never crossed my mind.

    Eddy can be another kicking legend with his accuracy and distance. That guy is worth a MID-ROUND pick because someone will surely get him if we wait.

    And FAR better a Gator instead of some wide-whatever spear thug like aguayo.

    I really like Daniel Carlson from Auburn, but it's going to take a higher draft pick to get him than I'm willing to part with. As a 7th round pick or UDFA sure, but not in the 4th or 5th round.

    Good info. Bears overpayed for Parkey, I guess they just wanted some consistency. Fins should be able to replace him....I guess...

    The distance Pineiro gets on these kicks are impressive.

    This is the type of Generational kicker that the Dolphins could draft and have play for them for 20 years. He will come in with the leg strength that will be tops in the league for years to come. And his accuracy was the best in the nation over the last two years.
    He was 29/30 over the last two years for a 97% success rate! He is unfazed by the big stage evidenced by his 3/3 FG performance at LSU last year in front of 102,000 in attendance! And he wants to be a Miami Dolphin!

    I think the aguayo thing is mental. Why not bring him in to compete?

    Well, he got another chance in Chicago and failed horribly. Maybe he can fix it but why wait and see. Can just get another kicker without the mental block.

    About one out of every 5 nfl games is decided by 3 points or less. The difference of winning versus losing those games can make a 6-10 team 9-7 or 10-6. That’s a big swing that has playoff implications and is far from meaningless. You’ve got to be able to win the close ones.
