At least one blemish on Odrick character

When Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland described first-round pick Jeff Odrick Thursday night he said Miami's new player is a "big, physical, high-motor, high-character guy."

Perhaps Odrick has character. But there is at least one incident in which he acted like a character.

According to various reports from March of 2009, including this one and this one, Odrick was cited after he got into a fight with four other people -- two male and one female Penn State students and another man of college age.

Outnumbered, Odrick reportedly punched one of the men. He had been drinking according to the citation for an incident that happened at 1:40 in the morning.

Odrick referred the police to his attorney. After interviews with his attorney, police issues a disorderly conduct citation of $430 and the matter was apparently dropped.

DyingBreed,

I actually would not mind that at all!

I think he has Soooooooo much upside he should be treated like JPP who went #15 in the 1st to the Giants despite just 7 div 1-A starts.

I would actually be very happy because I think he will end up being a great hybrid pass catcher / blocker as he has the size and will fill out more and more as he goes along. He is raw and but he has sort of Gonzales Jr. look to his spidery frame and is and outstanding athlete with his B-Ball background.

Maybe they trade back again and make a move like that.

If they stay at #40 a starter type at Safety such as Morgan Burnett would make more sense to me.

It is DAMN difficult to know how far players can go up a draft board on athleticism and potential... i.e. JPP.

Wonder what the Fins are thinking?

Cheers,

D77,

Jared makes diamond, thats my story and I'm sticking with it.

im glad that the rules did not apply for excssive celebration or taunting, because graham would have been penalized for the worst touchdown celebration ever!!

Now we all know that the Dolphins double up on position...so do we expect that the Dolphin's will select another DT with the next pick?
Carolina needs a QB...they are at 48...do they trade with the Dolphins IF a QB is at 40?

I'm gonna guess and say Ricky Sapp or Daryl Washington in the 2nd...

Rob,

with Jimmy Graham inside the "redzone" with he and Marshall will be an automatic 7pts. Pick your poison nfl defenses.

A 6'8 TE will solve Henne's accuracy problem too.

i hope we get a FS first one that can start as a rook. with allen healthy does Sean Smith go to FS?

FisheyPete they doulble up d-line in the 4th. We're dialing up Graham and I dont mean Alexander nor Ma' either.

henne has an accuracy problem, news to me

jets fn suck

The only reason to post on this entry is to see if the blog is finally working again.

Bring on RD # 2 baby

what about the te from arizona?

Rob in OC, I don't know if u read what Mando wrote about the sign in the Fins war room...It said "for the next three days we will draft Prototypical players who play good in pads". There is not going to be ANY exceptions this year...

there's no need to play it "safety" although we are "free" to do that too.

so what he got in a fight.....?????? whats the point...????

thats a character flaw....? he was drunk....??

stfw! are we supposed to have celibate sober monks...???

or worse yet - catholic priests??

move on to some pertinent information....:)

thanks

Sounds like a very bad Kotex advertising slogan to me.

Punching a 6'5 280lb drag queen does not count as fighting a girl.

update at 1:02 pst...I suggest we select a true NT with this upcoming 40th pick if we do not go with Golden Tate.

Sergio Kindle has some medical concerns (such as likely microsurgery needed on one of his knees).

Washington of TCU not that quick/fast.

Either Price of UCLA or Mt. Cody...I prefer Price as I see a lot of pac ten football and really like him...

ps-Do not draft taylor mays!!!!!...He plays soft like Gibril Wilson!!!!

DyingBreed,

Jimmy Graham the TE was 6'6 1/4 tall according to his combine numbers. 260lbs and ran a sterling 4.56!

He has hops and is already one of the tallest guys at TE in the draft regardless.

I think his upside is as high as any other TE in the draft. Gresham and Gronk have more time in for sure but I don't think either are as much of a pure athlete.

Cheers,

Flipper013,

Have you flipped your lid? Why pay a "higher price", to climb "Mt Cody" when you can sit back relax, grab an ice cold glass of milk to enjoy with your "Jimmy Grahams."

Say Graham, Jimmy Graham in the 2nd rd.

ESPN can not get off the Tebow subject.

Say Graham, Jimmy Graham!

pistol thats another reason i dont watch ESPN...NFL network, best coverage, imo

Seems very confident. From the film I saw, I like the pick.

Does anyone else suspect Tebow may be gay or is it just me?

bobby,

I did say that article.

A very interesting slogan...

The sign doesn't say anything about players playing a long time in pads.

Jimmy Graham is an agressive player that had a VERY good season with 5 TD's out of the gate and he still learning and growing.

I can see how you feel very strongly that TE JG will not be the choice based off the sign.

My biggest challenge would not be whether he could play or not it would be whether or not he was being overdrafted vs losing out on a guy I think may end up being the best TE of this draft class... but that may be a year or more away from being dominant.

It may end up centering on how much time the Trifecta think they have to get things fully turned around and yearly playoff participants.

Cheers,

yea Dying, tank seems to have a lil sugar in it...lol

Nice report by Darlington. Fins tweaking the 3-4 to run some more 4 men fronts. Hence the need for big DE and no JT.... There is a chance Taylor Mays could be a pick at 40.

I Say Got Mays In round #2.Then,The T.E From The Gators(Aaron)In The 3rd Round.Then Mayjor Wright In The 4th If Hes There.If Not Get The WR From Texas(Jordan).We Missed Big With Wes Welker.Then Trade The Rest Of The Picks.For A HIGH 3rd Pick!

Mando
your enthusiasm for the negative just seems to show through. But, I guess thats just your schtick, right?

I still say the Dolphins will get a call for the 40th pick IF one of the QB's are available, Carolina needs to make a move, it could give the Dolphins a future 1st rounder.

What was that mando are you getting old, its like a grannys complaint now common, why don´t you tells us the latest intel on who do the Dolphins are looking for in the second round!

Cheers,

I also can see the Fins trading down if a QB is available (Colt) so someone can snag him before the Buffalo Bills.

Just calling it out now...

It has been determined the girl decribed in the Jared Odrick college incident was not really a girl. It was a case of mistaken gender identity. That alledged girl was actually Tim Tebow.

Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network reports the Carolina Panthers are interested in moving up in the second round of the draft to take Texas QB Colt McCoy.


Whoop-tee-dooo!! As long as he's stout against the run and can get after the QB then I'll be happy with this pick.

YOU GUYS SHOULD SHOW SUPPORT FOR THE NO 1 PICK AND QUIT BEING LIKE GIRLS .


P.S DID ANY ON NOTICE HOW TEBOW SPEAKS ?

Rob in OC, I really wasn't hooking that sign to Jimmy Graham because I like him..I don't believe he will be the pick at 40, that's a bigtime reach...and again, if they want to pick a TE at two, u take the proven guy who everyone knows will be a great TE, Gronkowski from Arizona

Well let's liquor him up and let him take on the opposing center/guards... No ones perfect.

Yes Aloco,

Tebow speaks like a girl. I really do believe Tebow maybe gay.

Jersey, I agree. I go back and forth, though, because I'm a junky.

Two things going on here. You have to think that they are gonna draft a DE/OLB and back to back at that.

Question is does Parcells wait to double down when he has two picks in the fourth? Or does he pull the trigger now with the 40 and 75 pick and double down on DE/OLB?

If the former, look for Safety to be addressed and Taylor Mays might still be there. But so might Everson Griffen or Kindle...Koa Misi might even be there at #75.

Come on everybody!WE WANT CLAUSEN!!!!

I know one Safety that Gronk does not want to be hit in the back by...Taylor Mays.

Could knock a disc right out of the man!

(enter sarcasm that is always harder to display in a post)

YOU GUYS SHOULD SHOW SUPPORT FOR THE NO 1 PICK AND QUIT BEING LIKE GIRLS .


I spoke very well of Odrick. I said "Jared makes diamonds."

How many of you were happy to see Tebow go to Denver. It got a little wierd here yesterday, it was like every Tebow supporter decided to show up and spout off about how Tebow is the man. Again, he seems like a nice guy. I'm happy that he didn't land here, and we don't have to worry about arguing the fact that he is not ready to be an NFL Qb.

I like Henne but I love Clausen the guy this just feels to much like when Marino fell if he falls to us we take him!!!!

Why have Clausen when we can instead have Claus? Are you German?

Odrick the Ogar

CLAUSEN!!!!CLAUSEN!!!!!CLAUSEN!!!!!

Daryl, I would have shot myself in the face if he would have landed here.

Tuna like Brandon Lang

Odrick the Ogar

Dying tell this doesn't feel like when Marino fell I have a good feeling about this guy!!

And to you sir, how on earth do you know what Marino feels like when he falls?

I don't like Taylor Mays one bit, has too much trouble in coverage...target Rashhed Jones, Major Wright...much better

I took on 4 guys at once, while drunk. Man, I wish I was as big as Odrick cause I got my ass kicked!

newz break....take taylor mays...love graham & the U but....

Clausen is one sorry looking dude. He looks just like the little bad a s sed kid who got caught with his mopey little hands in grandmother's cookie jar.

He's a cookie thief!

Again I like Hennes potential but I love Clausens the thing I don't like about him is he played with Notre Dame(@#$% the Irish!)but I can get past that
