boner or boomer???? cmon man!!!!
this guy;s been nothing but a wealth of good info
Hey...Boomer I got a question
Think there is any possible chance that Miami would draft a kicker? Just curious because of everything that went on with mare. He is getting alot older now even though he is a top 5 kicker
Personally, I think only possible with the very last pick in the 7th round and even then...no.
I believe Saban when he says for the record that their discussions with Mare have been centered around a realistic way to make Mare a phin for the rest of his career, given how big a part of this team's history he has been.
I would just like to again urge people who are interested in chatting with Boomer, myself, and KB21 during draft day to sign up for the draft day chat we will be holding.
We believe the experience will be pleasant and well worth the measly $5 cover charge.

Come chat with Boomer, KB21, and myself. We really don't think you'll regret it!
It's the hardest damn draft this year I've ever known. I am doing one with CK and Keith and I have one of my own, but it'll suck
Thanks for your contribution.
Hey Boomer and CK
I really want to thank both of you for your time and patience in answering all the posts. This particular topic is 1 of the one's I alway look for to see what new insights both of you have towards the draft and Dolphins in general. Again many thanks for bringing your insights to the boards.
Well even though I disagree with Boomer on somethings especially a draft issue from a few years ago, This board was filled with alot of people and info that pointed the same way. Even the great Boomer will not be right 100% of the time, and if he was then we would be paying him big money for the info.
Hey man we appreciate the praise!

Boomer, I have heard these names in the lower rounds...
Vaugh, the linebacker from LSU
Brandon Gulliroy DE, UL Monroe
Prudy CB LSU
There are others, but I hear the three names a lot.
Do you have others in mind, and what do you think of these three?
One more question before draft day and I'll leave you guys alone!
If Cutler slips to #16 and we don't have a deal for Harrington, do you see Saban selecting him?
In the end, no...just because the Vikings will trade up from #17 to take him, or the Jets will trade up from #29 with us. We've held discussions with both teams, and there's reason to believe they have contingency deals set up should Cutler fall.
My personal opinion on Cutler is that even though Leinart will be better in the long run, Cutler's invaluable experience managing the down side on a bad team and his very very significant physical skills will make him the QB most ready to make a contribution as a rookie. Ben Roethlisberger had the small school stigma going against him but the reality was that his significant physical skills allow him to be dangerous as a QB even if his decision making is off a lot (and he continually throws more near-interceptions than just about any QB). OCs can make the game easier for a guy who is not yet ready to handle loads and loads of decision making authority. They have a lot tougher time planning an offense around a weak set of physical abilities. IMO, no rookie walks in with the mental aspect of the game down well enough to succeed without monster physical talent at his disposal. Not even Joe Montana. That much takes time. If I recall right Rick Mirer actually did relatively well his rookie year in Seattle...then was crap as a pro the rest of his career. I'm not sayin Cutler will be crap as a pro...just that he's like other guys who have enjoyed a little bit of success as a rookie...and therefore selecting him wouldn't be a bad idea considering we need someone NOW to run the offense for about 6 games at various points when Daunte's knee swells up like a balloon.
So, our threat to the Vikings to take him at #16 is credible...cuz we'd do it. That means the Vikes will pony up and do the one spot trade, probably for a 4th the same as they did to us two years ago.
Manny Lawson has been my pick at #16 for reasons that we've already discussed. I'm wondering though, due to Ricky's departure, if we might consider DeAngelo Williams.
This is a guy that would give us a "thunder and lightning" backfield. He and Ronnie can both hit the home run, both are great receivers, and both are high character, leader type guys. They compliment each other very well. Along with a healthy Daunte Culpepper, we'd have a tremendous backfield for years to come. With that backfield, we wouldn't need a great O-line; we'd be fine with what we have.
Admittedly, it would be very hard to pass up on the great LB's and DB's available to us in the 1st round, but when you consider what Williams could bring to our offense, it would be interesting.
I dont think Saban will pay first round money for another RB....
