« Trade down, Dolphins, please trade down! | Main | Final word (I think) on Taylor offseason offer »

Draft day is here! So what happens?

NOTE OFF THE BAT: Salguero favorite players are in bold.

Is it going to be Earl Thomas or Eric Berry or Nate Allen because the Dolphins need a safety? Is it going to be Jerry Hughes, Derrick Morgan or, my future adopted son, Brandon Graham because the Dolphins need a pass rusher? Is it going to be Mike Iupati because the Dolphins need a left guard? God, I hope it's not Dan Williams even though the Dolphins need a nose tackle. (I just don't think Williams is a value pick.)

Everybody backed off the idea of Rolando McClain after Miami signed Karlos Dansby. But what if McClain is the highest guy on Miami's board?

Maybe it will it be a surprise pick.

If Oklahoma TE Jermaine Gresham had not suffered a major knee injury in 2009, he would be a Top 10 pick this draft. Defenses will have nightmares about this kid some day. It would be wonderful if they were having those bad dreams the week they have to play the Dolphins.

Maybe Dez Bryant is a possibility because if one troubled but talented receiver is good, imagine what the Dolphins can do with two troubled but talented receivers. If you want to stay away from the troubled receiver, Demaryius Thomas is a WR that simply could be trouble for opponents. Big, fast, he is under the radar. Until now.

Maybe it's a running back because Ronnie Brown or Ricky Williams or both won't be around in 2011. In that case it might be Fresno State RB Ryan Mathews, who could be the workhorse for the next five years. Is C.J. Spiller a possibility? I don't see it, but I'd love it! He's a potential TD every time he touches the football.

You want a name out of the blue? Literally? Someone told me the Dolphins might address their free safety issues by picking Boise State cornerback Kyle Wilson and moving either Sean Smith or Will Allen to free safety. Why do I say this is out of the blue? Have you seen Boise State's field?

By the way, local agent Drew Rosenhaus has been hoping the Dolphins take Jason Pierre-Paul, who is supposed to be a latter day Jevon Kearse. If Rosenhaus successfully planted that seed in Bill Parcells' brain I vote him agent of the year.

Of course, many other names would be in play if the Dolphins trade down as I wrote in today's Miami Herald. 

Anyway, that's the set-up for the 2010 NFL Draft that begins at 7:30 p.m.

[BLOG NOTE: You will notice the extensive list of players posted earlier on this site as compiled by Chris Cordero has been taken down. Apparently the template for that list was taken from another site. While Cordero added to that list, subtracted from that list, and then worked on commentary for the list, the standard for the work here is high. It's orginal. When it's someone else's work, in this case universaldraft.com, I tell you or link to it or both.]

Thanks NJ i'm going to check him out...

Hey EightyTwenty your the one trying to sound like a tough guy now....but hey if B12 won't meet you I will. Won't give you my address but I definately meet you in a park here in Orlando if you find yourself in the area.
We will have some beers and talk about our disagreement!

Booby is just some jagoff in a herald blog. who are you kidding ruger?

don't fall in the canal you are going fishing in.

I agree with you there Bobbyd, OLB needs are great.

I 've been telling you guys about kindle for a couple of days now. I'm hearing alot of things about kindle and the dolphins, We'll see , don't be suprised it's him It might even be ina trade down. I'm hearing miami an dallas are in talks today about a trade.

I hope there is some sort of trade I'd like to see the fins get back into the second round

Who the hell is Simon Clancy? Did he write a spy novel or something?

Mando, kindly stomp on this little pissant.

SoiledBottom (@ 9:31 AM)

Now all I need are the magic X-ray Glasses!

Don't get lost rummaging through your Moms underwear draw... Floppin Idiot... and thanks... I will be having fun!

Ahh! Simon Clancey and the Rainbow Six!!

I know Bill, there's only two ways it can go for EightyTwenty, and both end up with me arresting him...question is what will he look like when he gets to the jail...

If we pick at 12, i like Spiller. Realistically, we should trade down & draft Hughes in the mid 20's.

Fins won't be able to trade ronnie brown until after the first day of the draft. Teams will assess what talent is left and decide if it is an upgrade over Ronnie or not....simple as that!

Enough, today is Draft Day, I'm done talking to the trolls and morons...This is going to be a great day!!

I can’t believe all the nonsense on here on draft day. Come on fellas (bobby, nj, bill and all the regulars) ignore the trolls and talk some draft so I have some decent s h i t to read. Anybody that is asking another poster to put his address up on a blog doesn’t deserve a response. The regulars stuck up for Mando and he retracted the fishy info. So let's bring on the draft talk. :)

Need any Non-lethal hardware... Bobby? I can cut ya a good deal!!! Na!!... Just pop him with the Service Weapon... less paperwork!

By the way J-Lo said on the Tonight Show she wants Dan Williams...I can only imagine how "happy" Parcells must be this morning!!

Alright there Bobby and the rest of ya... I'm off to the marina... I am looking forward to a great night and a great draft... I talk to ya soon Bobby. I hope the Party rocks! Talk acha once under way and settled into the boat. Have fun!

bobbyd12 , The owner of the dolphins is also pushing for dan williams,

Lol...what a bunch of Salguero nut huggers. "non-lethal hardware"? You mean like what's in your pants? Lol...you boys talk some good smack, but you're still reading a bad blog, written by a bad writer. Take care.


you are going to arrest somebody for disagreeing with you on a blog?

what is your department, jurisdiction and badge number?

you should be ashamed of yourself you stalinist thug.

Yeah, but I doesn't parcells have his mind set on Graham?

U2 Bill

NJ PHIN FAN - Do you think Blunt carries that much baggage because of the one incident against Boise State? He would be getting taken close to the top of the RB's without that incident. He could be a late round sleeper IMO that would be worth the gamble. If he doesn't work out it's only a lost 6th rounder (guessing on the round he goes). Do you think it would be a good/bad idea to take him?

bobbyd12 , sorry you mentioned the owner . it was j-lo. that means he won't be the pick. LOL

Affter Marshall and Incognito, Blount would be an altar boy

morgan, jpp, or dan williams--or trade only viable options---kindle to high 4 him, bg, hughes arnt even on radar we have wake---he is already the undersized exception tuna made--no way he does another 1---

if we trade out---it will be iupati, or they will grab a nose like linval joesph or cody---even though they are 2nd round prospects. Tuna does throw out value if he believes in the player.

Spikes in the 3rd---i see u Florida

So you are an AIDs ridden P.O.S?.... Your right Nothing "Lethal" In my pants, Just good ol Home grow Florida Tube Snake .... You did not just "disagree" with Bobby... you made a Direct Threat to a Federal Agent you F***ing idiot! Have a nice life.... better get lost.

I would take Blunt for the Ginn 5th rounder if we choose to pick a RB

Actually -- There's the chance that Jennifer could be
playing the role of "Smoke-screen" operative.

Indiana , he has had more than that one inciden vs boise st. Check it out . No , i don't think it's a bad idea or a big gamble in the 6th.

linval has extreme upside drawing comparisons to Nghata for his 34-end, nt versitility--

Cody is the most natural nose, playn it in college---dont mind either at 25

WTF do you come up with your crap salguero?? If the staff and scouts and people in the know, and Parcells himself wants Dan Wiliams why the hell do you not think he's a "value pick?" None of the joke picks you have listed (N O N E) outweigh our need for a nosetackle! After a few minutes of sitting here, I am dumbfounded why I even started this response......you need to find something else to write about (as in a whole different realm)! Clearly, football ain't it for you...
LMFAO! "trade down......." and lose everything we need. Moronic....

Thks Bill, I'm pretty sure my friend Armando flop is ALoco trying to get a rise out of me...it's his style of writing..i'm getting good catching him

Blount got provoked by a taunting player, followed by fans shouting expletives & also taunting (watch the tape), and lost his temper.

Quite frankly, the punk on the other squad should have been disciplined too, and the fans identified thru videotape & banned from games.

Blount deserved to be punished. He was. He did what was asked of him & adequately demonstrated remorse.

I'm sure all you judgmental, glass-house-living-stone-throwing Angels out there never lost your temper or did something horrbly stupid.

Blount does not have "too much" baggage. He has some baggage that must be factores into his draft status.

But there is no reasonto take him off the board based on the Boise incident.

I mean, really fellas??? Didn't we just get Brandon & Richie Incog?? Two moves I liked very much, btw.

So let's not bury Blount yet.

What sets Derrick Morgan apart from Matt Roth?

I mean Morgan is a little faster -- but...not as strong.

Is there really a potentially 'elite' player available @ 12?


at this point....prolly just that Tuna may likee Derrick but no likee Matt.

NJ - I didn't know he had that much more than the incident with Boise State, but I agree it wouldnt be a bad idea with late round pick.

Standley23 - Nice point on using Ginn's 5th rounder on Blunt. In a sense we would trade brick hands for a solid runner with a little bit of immaturity, in which I think he'll grow out of? I'd take that trade...

I will never get tired of seeing Blount smack that sht talker.

My picks
Rd1 Mike Iupati Trade down: Odrick/ Weatherspoon
If Trade Rd2 Koa Misi/ John Jerry
Rd3 Kam Chancellor
Rd4 Syd'Quan Thompson
Rd5 Tony Moeaki
Rd6 Desi Karim
Rd6 Kellen Heard

Indiania, I would take an ice cold beer and a sandwich for Ginn...we would make out better

Who I think they will pick: Derrick Morgan




You're probably right...

Dude seems to be building up a WHOLE LIST of players he 'doesn't like'.

Seer , who exactly buried blount and who said to much baggage ??? i'd like to know ?

FS is where it's at!!!

Those of you who thought the Marshall trade would never happen are the same ones wanting a NT.

Let's get real here! We need a playmaker at the FS spot!!

I’m still sticking to my original most valuable pick at #12 if we don’t trade down lets go with MY NAME IS EARL, THOMAS (a Thomas from Texas has never let us down here in Miami)

Just look at the steelers defense last year, Polamalu went down and the whole defense was not the same, teams were able to pass on them and they didn’t get as many sacks (coverage sacks) because TE and WR were able to get open faster without Troy to cover the field. Look at the Ravens when Reed goes down, they are not nearly the same.

FS is the playmaker of the defense, why were we so bad last year? Our FS was not a true FS. That has to be the number one fix. Just imagine us with a true FS last year, we end up winning at least 3 to 4 games that we lost based on defensive blown plays (that’s an 11-5 record compared to 7-9)

There is a rumor that they may move Sean Smith to FS (he is a ball hawk so this may work out nicely) and take a CB in the draft.

I like the idea of Sean Smith back there as well then Will Allen would start and we could draft a CB in the 3rd or 4th to play dime and nickel with Jason Allen (last chance for this guy to step it up!). If that’s the game plan then it allows us to focus on trading down and getting in the 2nd round. In the 1st round get an OLB pass rushing expert in the 1st round and 2nd round a NT. Then pick up another OLB later, possibly in the 5th.

matt roth build is nothing like derrick morgan---Roth is top heavy with short arms---mrogan is bottom heavy--which is the better type of weight distribution with long arms---and morgan is a better athelte----yazzi

I would select the best we at 12. It would be nice to see us take to the air a bit more.

Not sure if Carlito is still around but that's a good mock he put together this morning. Only thing, I'm not that big on Micah Johnson (although I guess the sixth isn't bad). I'd like to see a TE and KR in there somewhere. I know we have a number of needds but that's a couple maybe lesser priorities I hope we can have taken care of.

I don't know & wasn't starting anything; honestly I've only seen comments on this page & was just asking myself the same Q when I saw your 1:21 post.

I just nptoce a couple of mentions here That I assumed (& we know whatthatmeasn!) meant folks (not necess. you) were flaming Blount.

Also, quite frankly, the subject of Blount kinda gets me worked up (as you can see).....the A-Hole on Boise & the drunken screaming fans ticked me off as much if not more than Blount's overreaction.

So sorry if you took it wrong but pls. chill.....it was a Blount thing, not an NJ thing!!

And don't ask me what language "nptoce" is!!!

I'm still thinking it's Kindle, Morgan or McClain in that order. If a tradedown happens, it's while we are on the clock and I would look to see us grab a Graham or a Hughes in the twenties.

It will be interesting to see if Houston tries to trade up with us. I think they are a team on the verge of something good and I could see them trying to jump up to grab Spiller or Bryant if they are still around. To team one of these guys with Johnson in that offence would be impressive.

Allen...good breakdown of the differences between Roth and Morgan. People forget or never knew Roth was a 6'4, 250 lb, speed DE coming out of Iowa. Should have never been asked to bulk up to become a 3-4 DE.

Don Banks from SI has us trading down with the Eagles and STILL getting Sergio Kindle. I think that would be AWESOME. He has WR D. Thomas still there at 24, so I myself would be VERY tempted to take him at 24 and take OLB in the second round with the pick acquired from Eagles. I don't think they will do that but that's my thoughts.

Mando, what do you have to say about ESPN reporting that your sweetheart JT WAS INDEED OFFERED A CONTRACT BY MIAMI AFTER THE SEASON. Man, what a repeated Judas this guy is.


And still we have "fans" blaming the administration for this idiot playing for the Jets. it couldn't have anything to do with JT playing in the biggest media centre to further his non existent "hollywood" career, could it? Just fess up Jason.


That sounds encouraging... it would make me feel a little better about them picking Morgan.

LMFAO @ Seer , No problem man , You alwys make laugh and i mean that in a good way. I hear ya about blount because i would've done the same thing with my temper,

There's a rumor that Dallas will trade with the Dolphins...if that comes to pass...and the Dolphins drop down to 27...only one player will be there worth the pick...Mount Cody.

Remember...Mount Cody.

Craig M . i agrre with you on the kindle , mclain or morgan comment and hughes or graham on a trade down, i've been saying that for days. we'll see tonight, thank god.


I dont think Kindle will be available if we trade with the Eagles. I think the Pats will grab him at #22 IMO but we shall see later bud

allen is correct , there's alot of differences with morgan and roth as he mentioned .
