Dolphins pick G John Jerry in third round.

Dolphins coaches loved Mississippi guard John Jerry at the Senior Bowl. They also like him on tape.

Now, they'll get to add to the relationship as the Dolphins have just drafted Jerry with their third round pick.

Jerry is a rookie but he's quite experienced. He started 46 of 49 games for the Rebels. He played at tackle a lot but he projects at guard in the NFL.

The Dolphins obviously need help at left guard.

"I feel like I can play either one," Jerry said. "I have experience at both so I feel I can play either one."

Jerry is the younger brother of Atlanta Falcons defensive lineman Peria Jerry.

The team will try feverishly to trade guard Justin Smiley by the time the draft is over Saturday.

First!

A d@mn GUARD...3 years into this and 2 linemen in the first 3! WTF

Where is this guy gonna play? Is Carey toast?

i dont really understand the draft strategy. They seem to be ignoring the needs of the team

Does this mean justin smiley is 100% not coming back.?

REMEMBER NJ PHIN FAN TO KEEP THAT COCCO BUTTER IN YOUR REAR BECAUSE IT SHOULD HELP FROM NOT GETTING SO RAW IN THERE. I TOLD YOU TO PUT THE K-Y IN YOUR DUMPER FIRST BUT YOU DIDN'T LISTEN


Wow? I cant understand I thought we had glaring needs at defense. Now I think that Smiley has to be traded. I really thougt we would draft another linebacker or maybe a punter or a safety. This pick makes no sense to me, no matter how good this guy is. Is he going to start over who??

You don't sound excited about this draft Armando. You are like 'yeah...they like him...woohoo...whisper to yourself(who is this guy)...yay. LOL. So what grade are you giving the Armando. BTW who is the receiver opposite B Marshall?

But did not Odrick toast Jerry at SB?

I was one of the biggest defenders of Odrick & Koa....but this is a head-scratcher, for sure!

dang you guys act like Miami should never draft lineman again

this guy's a bum

bears just had their first pick

Dude this guy is huge!! Say goodbye to smiley. This guy is huge 6ft 6in 328lbs

I meant what grade are you giving them, Armando.



Well Mando... how to analyze this.

They obviously wanted nothing to do with smiley anymore. This guy is HUUUUUGE! More protection for henne. More holes for ricky and ronnie.

But considering we STILL haven't addressed the safety position. I hope we make a run for otogwe or at the very least Darren Sharper.


Why aren't the Dolphins drafting any undersized Big Ten WRs who can't catch this year?

All you negative people get a life, what do you know about football... While I do not think the Trifecta has done a good job with some of their past picks. It is too early to say anything about the guys they are drafting.

A freaking guard??? Really??? That is our NEED right now??? I think Bill Parcells picks people that he KNOWS no one will think he will pick just so he can try to look like he knows better than everyone else....this is a stupid pick...even if he is good, he wasnt a need...stupid....

I like this pick better than the second round pick when there were other higher rated players like Kindle, Joseph, Mays, Cody, Tate, Spikes, or Brown that could have been picked.

Oy Vey.

I hope this is not gonna be another draft BUST!

It sure seems like the phins have passed on some good talent on all three of their picks.

Guys - This guy is a BEAST.

Same size as Iupati! Anchor next to Long. I like it. Brandon Lang still out there to be had at OLB to compete with Misi Maybe the coaches think Culver and Clemons can handle FS.

Tony Fu%%ing Sparano, Another Fu%%ing offensive lineman we don't need. Watch another wasted 3rd round pick. I am starting to hate sparano. We needed a saftey , not another stupid as& lineman that will never play. What a Fu&&ing joke.

I don't have a problem with the players they're drafting, I just have a problem with the fact that they seem to be ignoring the glaring hole at Safety and Nose Tackle. As much as I like Odrick, he's not exactly The Big Load I thought they would be targeting at NT. I mean they preach about height and weight being important, yet they've passed on all the big men so far, and Safety is still a wide open race.

This is starting to suck. We need a safety man, really bad! We also could've used another OLB. NT??

So, they are drafting positions that they have made mistakes on the past 3 seasons:

DE/NT: mcDaniels, Langford, Merling, Dotson
OLB: Torbor, Ayodele, Walden
OG: Murphy, Smiley

Way to go...I was stoked when we grabbed Dansby and Marshall, it's been steadily downhill since...

Oh, do we have ANYONE to replace JT?

nope nova, i am married

im happy just for de fact that we didnt pick any playar named pat o patrick we all now what happend last year!!!! hahahahah

where can i sell my season tickets anyone

one has him ranked #2 behind Iupati, but is that the point?? Not a NEED....and what the hell is wrong with SMiley so much that they are trying to get rid of him...we just NEVER have the "Sexy" draft...boring as all hell....

I'm just enjoying seeing how much the draft gurus on here don't know squat. Parcells is basically torturing you guys cuz he has picked a bunch of relative no names and absolutely none of the guys any of you have said. Hilarious. Its even deflated poor, Armando. He gives a 3 liner about the pick....lol.

I see people crying... just like before Marshall. RELAX you might be surprised in the end. All those tears may be for nothing!

Rhyno, maybe when Smiley can play an entire year without hurting himself

Well, noone EVER picks right, EVER, but, regardless, this might as well be 2008 again

National Football Post: Jerry is one of the best offensive lineman in this years draft and looks like a potential blue-chip offensive guard in the NFL. A great fit for the Dolphins who love big lineman.

I would rather have someone they believe is good than reaching for z need.

The Dolphins absolutely should take an undersized, 25-year old, weak-armed QB from BYU with the next pick.

Rhyno, have u been watching the past few seasons?

FINALLY NO ONE IS FAKING MY NAME....NOW GET OVER HERE CUBAN MENACE. I HAVE HAD ENOUGH GREEK FOR THE NIGHT....TIME FOR YOU TO ILLEGALLY PARK YOUR BOAT AT MY PLACE SO I CAN MILK YOUR PROSTATE

We should start giving away these 6th and 7th rounders to make a move.

for those of you who are crying about a safety... check this guy out, Robert Johnson of Utah. He wasn't even invited to the combine but you guys tell me what you think.

09 Stats:

66 tackles
6 interceptions
1 FF

Mando will back me about this kid.

Lol Cam Cameron. Good Comedy my friend!

Rhyno -
LG was a soon to be need once Smiley's gone (which has all be confirmed for the last month)

Thats why they were looking at Iupati. I know we need another OLB and FS, but maybe Culver can handle it, a 4th rounder at this point wouldn't start over him. I'm hoping for Brandon Lang in Round 4.

I like Jerry. Potential for a SOLID O-Line.

Considering the Jags have taken two DT's, maybe Miami will try to trade for John Henderson. He could come cheap.

TAKING A POLL: WHO DO YOU THINK HAS A BETTER BUTT?
A: GRUDEN
B: YOUNG
C: FOR YOU CHUBBY CHASERS, BOOMER

NOTE: NO KIPER BECAUSE HIS ASS HAIRS LOOK LIKE HIS HEAD HAIRS

I don't get what the Trifecta are doing. I sure hope that Ireland comes out and tells us all about their insanity. All that I can think about is getting burned by the TEs in games like San Diego, Atlanta, and the Colts. We don't have a LB that can cover them and we don't have a S to cover them. I am getting ready to get burned all over again this year.

The Worst Offseason Ever!Instead Of Makin The Team Better Overall We Made It Worst!The Worst Picks In This Years Draft Besides The JAGS!We Move Up To Get A Second ROunder.An Still Manage To "F" It Up.We Have A Better Offence Then Last Years And Beleive It "R" Not,A Worst Defence!Last Year FS(G.Wilson) Got All The Blame Cause He Sucked.Now,We Have To Play A FS That Couldnt Beat Wilson For The Startin JOB!

The important thing to consider about John Jerry is -- his family is awesome.

All 3 played in the SENIOR BOWL . Coincidence ??? NOPE !! They followed these guys day in and day out for a week. Miami knows these guys

HURRY THE POLL CLOSES WHEN THE THIRD ROUND IS OVER

yeah...Dansby & Marshal = worst offseason ever.

& you wonder why many of us hate the haters.

bu, don't be ashamed of your learning disability.

You win on the O-line and D-line.

strange draft....did the Ravens draft our players since they are really doing what I thought we would do....

bu, u happy with your jet picks?

Oh, do we have ANYONE to replace JT?

Posted by: Marc

Koa Misi?

You dont win on the oline and dline. LOOK AT WHO WINS THE SUPERBOWL.

NJ, were there safeties or NT's or OLB's at the SENIOR BOWL?

We need skill player, Andre from the citadel or the Syracuse reciever
