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.

How is it that DE Everson Griffin is still available?

Yes, Dol Disc...i have been watching...and I have watched us get burned on big play after big play in the secondary...Smiley's play is NOT as bad as our secondary, that and the fact that we dont even have a starter, unless you count Clemons...who I dont think is ready to start...so Yea, i get that Smiley has been hurt, but he is a GREAT locker room guy, and does NOT present as much of a need as safety....

Miami came into this needing a NT/DL , OLB , S and G. They got 3 of them with a double down coming at NT and OLB. Miami has 7 more draft picks to work with either with selections or trades.

Lets Hope We Switch To A 4-3 Defence Are Were F#CK3K

I'm NOT SURE IF THIS IS THE BEST DRAFT OR THE WORST.

I KNOW THE GOD FATHERS KNOW WHAT THEY're DOING SO I WILL JUST KEEP THE FAITH.

Who is gonna play Safety ? Sharper, Otogwe ?

you don't judge a draft on paper, and you don't draft sexy picks to keep fans happy.

somebody call carl peterson and see if he wants the job

So, Jefferson, we lost JT and JP and our starting OLB's will be Cam Wake, the CFL beast, and a rookie? You're right, no worries at all

You DO win with exceptional O & D lines dude, who do you think gives (or doesn't give) QB's time to run the offense, numnuts?

Thank you Bill Parcells!!! Chris Mortenson of ESPN has the Dolphins as one of the Top Draft teams!!! I'm out for the night, I'm going to leave the board to the crybabies and no nothings who think they should be GMs...Teams thought the Fins were physical last year???? They ain't seen nothing yet!!!! PARCELLS RULES!!!

WHO WANTS ME TO EMAIL YOU PICTURES OF ME POUNDING NJ PHIN FANS ONCE TIGHT BUTT?

Cam Thomas?? Ricky Sapp?? Jimmy Graham??

MAKE A MOVE FELLAS!!!!!!!

Great post John

In Parcells,i trust

Will allen or steve smith will play safety

bobby, you are EXACTLY right!

I DO think I should be the GM!

Phins have Steve Smith? Put him back at wideout

Cool out everyone, we still have 7 more picks. After the draft you will see we hit all the holes.

Can't believe we havnt traded smiley to a team needing depth.. The dudes a bad ass, just can't last 16 games..

these guys remind me of 1970's football.

When's our next pick? Anyone? Bueller?

Steve Smith??

Guys, the NFL (and football in general) is won and lost in the trenches...anytime my Dolphins draft a big, strong talented beast for the DL or OL I am happy...3 very good picks in my opinion...also like koa misi (I was hoping for sergio but then read a scout's take who said he didn't like physical contact and thus didn't project well to the NFL)....nice 3 picks.

that's right bobbyd12 , Mort rates miami has one of the better draft. Just shows how clueless some fans.

Will Allen can't play corner and you want to move him to safety? What is Will Allen? 5'10, 190? Sean Smith can't tackle WR's, much less RBs, FBs, and TE's...

I think they will draft atleast one more oline man.

It's all so simple. All the nervous nellies on theis blog get it why don't Ireland and Parcells. I bet our FO doesn't even have a plan. They're just throwing darts at a board.

Just like they did in FA when all the scared children thought we didn't have a plan. All we did was get the best player in FA and acquire one of the best receivers in the league. How do some of you guys survive the day without getting heart attacks?

U win the superbowl with weapons on offense. Some thing it will take us 5 more drafts to seemingly get since Parcells is alergic to offensive talent.

Get a fast opportunistic defense that can blitz and cover.

Have more than one wr on your team that can be a big time play maker. Have a rb capable of gaining more than 15 yds on a run without being chased down from behind.

Poor Henne he will throw 300yd. games in a row and the safety will just go ahead and the other teams put a big 6 on the board. Who will take the blame HENNE! Tell me they have a plan.

Later B12.

Definitely not the sexy picks, but some big girls, got that boom, boom, pow. Know what I mean?

Marshall was our sexy pick. He's got great legs.

most services had Jerry as #2 G after Iupati..


but WE'VE NEVER HEARD OF HIM, SO HE MUST BE A BUST!!!

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

& you wonder why many of us hate the haters.

Yea We Added ProBowlers.But,We Lost JT AND Porter(OLB's If U Dont Know)An Haven Replaced ONE Of Them.AN Lets Get Ready To Pick 8th Overrall Next Year.Why,I Say That Look At The Schedule!We Need Defence More

Sean smith,sorry to much bacardi

Robert, 4th round (128th pick).

HURRY THE BUTT POLL IS CLOSING...I CAN ADD A D: NJ PHIN FAN BUT HIS BUTT IS VERY RIPPED UP RIGHT NOW

bu, however will we live without porter and JT!!! Might as well not play this season... Silly little troll!!! The waaaaambulance is on it's way for u!!!!

Thanks DC.. We swapped with S Diego.. Forgot about that.. We only have one?

I'll go on the record and say this is a good draft so far, meat and potatoes; we will be a VERY physical team when it is all said and done.

This draft so far has been solid. We are changing the defense this year with Nolan, and have picked up players to fit the scheme..All you cry babies out there need to relax and let the FO handle thier business..and btw if they haven't drafted a safety is because they probably believe Clemons or Tulver can handle the load..Clemons was a rookie last year, he has one year of experience under his belt now.

Love the first 2 picks but this one doesn't make much sense. Not much gonna be left at safety after round 3. I feel better after reading that they worked with him at the senior bowl but come on. There are plenty of guards that can be found later.

Quote of the night.... Yeah we got pro bowlers but we lost Porter and JT. That's awsome.

Philly got Vrandon Graham and Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, very, very similar players, and relentless pash rushers. That is good for them.

seriously, bu..your argument is losing Joey Porter?

Final Word: The brother of 2009 first round pick Peria, John Jerry has moved his way in to second round consideration after a strong senior bowl in Mobile. His conditioning was consistently an issue at Ole Miss, but if he can stay where he is at right now (sub-330), he can be an immediate starter in the NFL. His combination of size, power, and athleticism gives him the upside of possibly being the top guard from this draft class. He has experience at both right tackle and right guard, although he is much better suited for the interior trenches

Parcells took over a one-win team and made us respectable overnight.

Some of you really should be ashamed of yourselves for thinking you know more than guys who literally have been studying these guys for years.

Damn, Te'o-Nesheim just went to the Eagles, I had hopes of him in a double down in the 4th.

Henne won't throw for 300yds more than 2 times this entire season.

Marshall is the only wr we have and ppl are thinking you can have a potent offense with one wr and no TE or other explosive players in the passing game.

Before Marshall was here who was stretching the field...taking short passes and weaving there way to pay dirt??? No one....

Guess what...those same players are still here + Marshall. We will never be an explosive offense until we get a mentality like the Pats..Colts...and Saints. Mulitple wr's who can make things happen in space and uncover and consistently beat 1 on 1 coverage

It also helps to find an athletic TE who can stretch the field. Fasano LMAO!

I'm with you Po. We beefed up and filled needs at OL and OLB and got a versatile player in Odrick that we can use in two positions in the 4-3 or the 3-4.

Let me ask you all how well our D did last year WITH JT and Porter? We won many games right? Made the Playoffs? THe 2 young corners will be better this year, we will get a safety in the next round or two to help out and our DL and Lbs will be just as good as last year.
Bess will start opposite Beast, hartline or cam is 3rd wr.
Still need depth at rb and te, one more lb and someone that can kick return.

We still have no pass rushing and we need safety help. I understand building up the trenches but other positions are a need

This draft is meat and potatoes... The safeties after Berry and Thomas are not an upgrade to what we already have. Jerry is an upgrade to a broken down Smiley... This guy is huge, talented, productive and of course... A team captain... I think we are in the market for some veterans... At OLB and safety... I have heard Adalius Thomas, Cliff Avril, Sharper and Atogwe...

Cool Steve, who was the troll that was complaining he had a 5th round grade?

HEY STRA8BALLA DO YOU WANNA SUCK ME OFF....NJ PHIN FAN'S JAW IS REALLY SORE

colt mccoy to cleveland, wow they got their QB and late in the 3rd round good move. all the kid does is win!

We can't score any points! Our offense bites!

YES I AM THE BIGGEST A S S H O L E EVER

Let's take it a step further...

Bell-33 SS
Ferg-36? NT
Ricky-33 RB

So, not only did they add any NEEDS-OLB, FS, NT they didn't add any near future needs

These guys better be perrenial pro bowlers

We sign a FA safety, we have Wake, Misi is an edge rusher, Odrick can pressure up the middle, we still need another LB and NT on D.
