« Final word (I think) on Taylor offseason offer | Main | Dolphins trade 1st pick San Diego Chargers »

Draft live blog here at 7:30 p.m

Just arrived at Dolphins camp and this is what I'm hearing at this hour.

Yes, the Dolphins want to trade down. This surprises you? I wrote a column about the possibility in today's Herald and tweeted about it 20 hours ago. Big whoop.

The national networks are breathlessly reporting the Dolphins want to trade back. I would tell you to keep in mind that to trade back, you have to have a partner. Among the teams everyone knows are trying to trade up are Dallas, Philadelphia, Green Bay, and the Giants.

I hear the Chargers are also trying to trade up, but they are offering players as chips to make that deal, not necessarily draft picks. Short of Antonio Gates or Vincent Jackson, I have a hard time believing the Dolphins would go there with the Chargers. I know Bill Parcells was not in the past a huge Shawne Merriman guy.

Part of any Dolphins trade scenario today and beyond could include Justin Smiley or Ronnie Brown or one of the quarterbacks as part of the deal.

And what happens if the Dolphins drop?

I'm narrowing my list of favorite players to be picked to five if the Dolphins trade: Michigan's Brandon Graham, Penn State's Jared Odrick, Georgia Tech's Demaryius Thomas, Fresno State's Ryan Mathews and Boise State's Kyle Wilson.

For the wider list of players on the radar, check out this post on my blog from last night.

That's it for now. I'll be in and out of the blog between now and 7:30 p.m., when I'll start blogging live. Get it!

Like they said, it's a deep draft.

Dolphins to trade down out of 1st round

Top Players Still on the Board:
Auburn RB (can't recall his name?)
Goldens Tate
Ricky Sapp

lmao! @Stormernie

great new england is directly in front of miami they going to go for hughes them bastages

Dez gone. Guess we face him next feb.

dez bryant on the cowboys has the makings of a reality show....

tebow to denver? good, more defense left for us

Either Hughes, Kindle or Cody.


No either hughes, kindle, or Williams

Scouts Inc had Williams ranked #15

2,3, and a 4 for Teabow! Damn!

Go Phins!

As I said a while back, Williams at 28 and T. Mays at 40. And we still got B. Marshall - wow. 3rd and 4th we draft two LB.

Christian u da man!

2 picks 2 go!!

Dolphins will trade their 1st for Tedd Ginn jr and a 5th...

dan williams gone

gotta be kindle or hughes now

God I hope we don't draft Tate. Mays here. Mount Cody @40? maybe.

Good! I can't stand Williams. Cody is so much better. And if we pick kindle it's a bad pick. I want Jerry Hughes!

Golden Tate, Parcells just told me!

Yea. Sergio kindle would be great value here. Bellycheat might draft him though.

Trade the pick to the Rams for their 2nd and 3rd.

Louie what u smoking dawg?

we only traded ted ginn to sf so do we still have his family or were they in the deal to?

mcourty to pats. we gotta take hughes

What now? There goes Dan Williams.

wow. 2 rutgers guys taken before anyone from penn st. how times have changed

At least we don't have to say NE got someone we would have drafted.

Hughes or Kindle, can't go wrong w/ either one.

the pick is in...


Mays at 28. Mount Cody at 40. Two needs addressed. Hopefully get mccluster Saturday.

Another 6'3" defensive back? Taylor Mays from USC? Hmmm ...


f in ESPN

Hughes or Kindle....both are really solid STARTERS. Good either way.

And we got Marshal. And we got our 2nd rounder back. And we got a solid back up ILB who can contribute on special teams. Channing goes down again we are covered.


here we go...

Odrick, wtf?!?!? Mando, did u see this coming???

Odrick? Can he play end in a 3-4?

Wowwwwww what a bs pick

Someone tell me something about this Kid please. Mayock liked him though.

I don't like this pick at all. Not with Hughes on the board

Well thats a pick I don't understand...DT...why?

wtf? we have 2 productive ends already....


We better get mays or Hughes tomorrow

well a def end hmmm okay

the jests wanted odrick. always good when we can screw the jests

will he play nose???


will he play olb....????

we dont need an end!!



is that why they didnt resign Taylor???

Ok mcduffy must be happy another Penn state guy

Jesusman we have serious crazy depth on that line now. Will be great rotation. They won't get gassed. But. Dt's don't put points on the board. And he only has 14 career sacks? WTF is that. Run stopper ? Why. Pats can't run ball. Jets don't have Thomas. Bills suck. Didn't need this pick. At this time.

He better start opening day and protect Dansby!!!!!

The pick is horrible. We did not need a dt and even if we did odrick is crap. Kindle was even better. But Hughes was the pick. And guess what?!?! We still need olb fs and nt. Also, we need another wr. And a te. And about ten other things before dt. He's not a nose or an olb
