« Afternoon draft update from around the NFL | Main | Dolphins pick Vontae Davis in the first round »

Live radio at 11 a.m., live blog at 4 p.m.

We are on the clock. Only hours until the draft starts and then, well, only hours until something happens in Miami. I'm pumped.

So let's have a radio show! And let's do a live blog!

Here's the deal:

I will be on the air today on 790-AM The Ticket in South Florida and will be talking Dolphins and draft from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. If you are not fortunate enough to live in paradise, you can listen online at 790theticket.com and call the show toll free from anywhere in the United States at 1-888-790-3776. I want to hear from you!

Then at 4 p.m. when the draft begins we will do a live blog until the Dolphins pick or something actually happens. I will be on here throughout the afternoon and into the evening.

This should be an interesting day. I am told the Dolphins have spent some time the past 24 hours thinking about Derrick Burgess. The OLB possibility is available in trade from the Oakland Raiders. Yes, I know I've been telling you the Dolphins want to add draft picks not trade them away. Yes, I know Burgess is turning 31 in August. But the guy has been a solid pass-rusher of the first order in his career, collecting 47 sacks in seven seasons. Coach Tony Sparano has a great deal of respect for Burgess from the player's days with the Philadelphia Eagles.

This doesn't mean the Dolphins will trade for Burgess. But obviously they have to study the possibility.

By the time it's over, we'll know the names of the three players -- the first-round and two second-round picks -- that had better turn into starters for the Dolphins before the 2009 season is over.

We'll have a pretty good idea where Jason Taylor will end up in 2009, with New England continuing to be the favorite.

And we'll see how well or poorly Miami's AFC East rivals do as they attempt to dethrone the AFC East champions.

By the way, if you can't call the radio show and cannot be here for the live blog, you can leave your comment or question below and I'll answer them first when the live blog begins. And please people, let's leave the monkey talk and the social chat room banter out today, OK?

Gotta go get find my Mel Kiper wig now.

jason, are you there ?

dolphins4life, yes i am here

it has begun........ death to voldomore.

Mando, understand you have guidelines for editing but the juvenile, brainless tripe that pass for comments have me clicking on the SS instead of the Herald.

I have hand tools in the garage that have a higher IQ. These folks can't even spell at a 2nd grade level much less make any kind of logic.

Here's my question.. WHY did this draft start at 4p when it always started at noon?


mATHEW sTAFFORDlooks like he's going to do for loins what matt ryan did for atlanta

What is this seasame street or something, i feel like im kinder reading all these childish names and remarks, please guys keep it clean i want to enjoy updates while i enjoy the draft this only happens once a year lets enjoy it please.

COCOAJOE,shut up and talk only football voldomore

Super Bowl next year the Lions vs. Jaguars

Alrightie men ... and others. I'm sorry I'm late. I'll read through your comments and see what you guys think. Then the fun starts. ST. Lou on the clock.

so you guys think John Beck gets traded today?

voldomore writes and complaine under all these names, the latest,cocolotion

So Glad you could join us Mando.

CoCo lotion shut your trap i will go ape Shi6 on u i will drop kick u......Maddnesssss

stl should go lineman

cocajoe, would you have me ban people based on the fact they don't have perfect grammar?

john beck should be traded lets hope lol

St Louis went Jason Smith

Mando i want to take time out to thank u for makeing this blog available for us dolphin fans...Question what team will take the bills 2 1st round picks for the move up?

armando, you are so right.Beck will be gone by sunday,jason smith is gone people ,is that means RAY and nicks will be gone by 25

One comment on here had JT signing with the Dolphins AFTER all the minicamps and just in time for minicamp. I GUARANTEE you that's not how it will play out if it happens.

Matt Sanchez sweatin' already.

no one wants Beck..


Jason Smith from Baylor... now St.Louis is one big kid. How many all you can eat buffets has this kid been kicked out of? Big boy...

armando what teams would be interested in beck?

Joey Deville: I want to take time to thank you guys for coming here everyday. I am indebted to you, not the other way around.

Interested in Beck? No one for sure. Perhaps Dallas, Baltimore, San Diego, Texans, Redskins. All need backup quarterbacks.

If the Chiefs do not trade out, the should take Crabtree.

Whats up Mando,
Any more news on Boldin or are his contract demands too much ?

curry deff to chiefs

by the way, I see a couple of you listened to me on the radio today. thanks for that. I know it's difficult to listen to me.

what if pioli gets buffs 2 1st rounders.

K.C. Tyson Jackson

tyson Jackson to Tenn. Two LSU linemen playing next to each other in KC. Pioli thinks he's a Richard Seymour. What a joke.

Mando, you are the best reporter I have ever been around in all my years.

Tuna and Tuna helper

sanchez will be gone by the 6th pick armando ,he's not sweating,IN FACT I THINK tuna is starting to sweat wating all the way to 25

curry looks like an animal

Thank you the Tuna. You are correct. I am.

Armando... do your radio broadcasts get podcasted or put on youtube or something? Living in New England I'd like to stay up to speed and hear the discussions. Are they, or can they, be linked to the Herald website? Thanks for all your blogs, updates and quick responses to questions!

lol i liked that tyson jackson highlight when he chased that running back from behind for like 12 yards and stopped him what a highlight.

Seattle Aaron Curry

Aaron Curry to the Seahawks.

Nothing going on with Boldin right now. Sorry it took so long to answer that but I have to make calls to get the information.

ARMANDO,tell some thing in you gutt that's going to happen today and you never told any one about it .come on , you can do it.

glenn, my radio shows are live and can be heard LIVE streaming on 790theticket.com. Unfortunately they are not podcasted or youtubed at this time.

Hope Beck goes.. can only hope. The real Ace here. To all jets fans on this blog...you are pathetic.

AS, now that 'Hawks pass on Sanchez, do Skins/Jets start dialing Jags to move up?

sanchez still availavle buff is after him and denver i belive but what move will they make to get him? Curry take off that glow in the dark hat.

Yeeeeeeeesssssss. It's armando in da house !

Gopats: I woke up with this funky feeling that it was going to be Darius Butler.

I know, I know, I've been saying Rey Maualuga if he's available. But I don't know he'll be available.

And Butler is one of the safest guys as far as work ethic and character that you can find. Butler and I attend the same church in Sunrise Florida.


I would love for the Jets to move up to get Sanchez. Means they're giving up picks for a player that isn't going to be good for a year or two.

Don't get me wrong, I think Sanchez has ability. But he's raw. Very raw. He would have been the No. 1 overall pick next year.

Armando, I am a college student from miami that is living in Philadelphia right now. I actually have to admit that it was entertaining listening to you on the radio and it is weird not being able to hear you and the 790 group as much anymore. Thanks for the entertainment.

Can you do me a favor and explain to me why anyone has another position besides cornerback on the top of the dolphins needs right now? Sure, I want someone to blitz the QB, but with WR like moss, evans, and now TO, don't we really need a solid corner? Or is it that the prospects just aren't good enough to bother?

here it comes!
