Live draft blog begins here, now

Day Two of the draft is about to begin and two questions dominate:

Will the Dolphins trade into the second round?

As to getting into the second round, I have serious doubts the Dolphins will use their limited ammo to get into the round. That is obviously just a prediction, but I have a hard time believing Miami will invest the kind of capital necessary to come from nowhere to the the second.

That would require the Dolphins giving up their 2012 first round pick.

If the idea is for them to use their third round pick to try to move up into the second round, they still would have to yield either their fourth-round selection or perhaps the third rounder plus a high pick next year. Again, that is a prohibitive price.

I'm not saying the Dolphins would never pay such a price but ...

“I think you can always get ammunition," Ireland said yesterday abou tthe prospects of moving up. "I mean, look what Atlanta did. You always have ammunition I think. You can use your picks up until 2014 if you wanted to. We had a couple players on the board that if they fell to a certain spot then we might have jumped up, but we didn’t choose to do that.”

pats aint nothing - we hear how great they are at drafting ever year - why did they win superbowl every year

Posted by: little omondo | April 29, 2011 at 07:38 PM

Last Home checked the New England Patriots are a pretty good team and are masterful in the Draft, both on drafting players and acquiring draft picks

have a HAARPy day :(

little omondos article titled " debunking the myth - why dolphins add no exciting skill players-because they dont care- they like slow and conservative

Marino was the 6th QB selected...Drug rumours...Immobile...Just saying

Jimmy Jam. Keep dreaming. You really think they will pick all that speed? Forget it.

Posted by: jrljr2


It's good to have dreams!

I'd sure as heck pick all that speed and I bet 90% of the fans here would - maybe not the same names but the speed, oh the speed!

But there's a reason I'm not the GM - mostly that I don't like big slow players. :-)

ireland will think he's a steal now that nobody want him.

just like pouncey

soiled bottom

3rd round 79th
4th round 111th overall
5th round 146th overall
6th round 179th overall
7th rd. (1) 217th overall
7th rd. (2) 218th overall
7th rd. (3) 235th overall

i can see why parcells bolted early. ireland should have left with him. he has lost the respect of the fan base.

what players made pats beasts on defense last year ? what offensive player ?

Whatever we do please don't draft that knucklehead statue aka Ryan mallett!!

Mallett will fall to us in 3rd round... do we take him?

looking at the teams to pick between now and our pick in the 3rd, apart from the Redskins at #53 I cant see many teams that need a qb Mallet could fall if not get a running back and tyrod taylor in the 4th

NFL Network says Mallett may drop to 4th or 5th round...WOW!

I've got electric light
And I've got second sight
And amazing powers of observation
That's how I know
When I try to get through
On the telephone to you
They'll be nobody home

big mondo they just mentioned prince on nfl network -i wonder if gold garbage bag isnt far behind

At this point, I don't want Ryan Mallett. The Dolphins need a RB.

what about ricki stanzi ?

ireland would have to have my respect to loose it.

Spores like Sparano and ireland ride parcells coat tails

they on a free ride haven't earned nothing looks like they won't either

Wish you wee here (Marino)

maybe miami going to wait and see if they can sneak in stanzi for qb compition for henne

Pats TEs & CB picks from last year were Excellent as rookies

perhaps u did not watch the 2010 season Ormondos lil penis?

big mondo - always take best player before anything else. youre not using your head again

Going to the potty a second. You ready little amondo?

Dolphins dont NEED a RB in the draft

They NEED to sign FA RB D. Williams


U get that, Huh?

Mikel Leshoure still up?

they will probably trade the 3rd rounder for 2 7th rounders next year LOL

Haven't seen this much bitterness since 2007. This regime can't afford to draft another young QB and wait around. And frankly, I can't blame them. I don't want to see Mallet (or anyone else) come in, ride the pine most of the year, get thrown into a few games late, then be left with no support when Ireland/Sparano are canned prior to 2012. I guess people miss the Cam Cameron/John Beck era, because that would happen all over again.

I want RYAN MALLETT! He'll have a chip on his shoulder. Would be awesome if he could get him in the 3rd. Then pick DJ Williams in the fourth and we're in business.

good point home - just tired of pats hype. steelers draft as good if not better - but never hear that statement from experts - see i can make sense big mondo. i wouldnt want to use my head to much !

Mando...Can you explain why, now, you dont want Mallet please. If he falls he would be a steal. Many experts had him as 1st round talent and compared him to Rapistburger!!

Is there a chance Mallet slips to 3rd round?

Greg, I haven't wanted Mallett for a while. I just don't think he's going to survive in the pocket.

And that doesn't even address his apparent and serious (in eyes of NFL teams) off field issues.

Do u remember what the Patriots ST did against our STs in 2010?

Do u know the players on the Patriots special teams and where they also came from?

another ignorant oblivious fool if u think the Pats dont draft well or acquire more picks even after losing one to Spygate

"what chemtrails?" Huh?

mallet will have chip on shoulder, crank up nose, dobbie in lips and beer in hand.

ireland canot resist

my name is, my name is

big mondo is in the bathroom - taking me for a leak - will be back shortly

wow i think i jus got water splashed in my eyes all the way from miami to louisiana with the splash they were supposedly going to be making

Mando... so why not a RB later, also in FA (whenever that is), and take a Safety in the 3rd?

big mondo just left a splash in my one eye also

But we heard the same "RUMOURS" about a QB in 1983??? That worked out pretty good for the team that drafted him!!

I like Stanzi better than mallett

big mondo looks like we need to be players in free agency. we aint getting any explosive players here are we

Mando...too early to make your prediction?

Marino was an immobile QB...as immobile as Mallet is today. Are you suggesting Marino couldn't play today??


thoughts on POUNCEY......GREAT PICK!!!

1. remember the musical chairs we played last year with Oline-- this was a MAJOR NEED...

2. I wanted the sexy pick too, but there were none, what INGRAM? Ricky/Ronnie couldn't run what makes you think he would...


just remember - we cant win a superbowl without a qb..
rothlisburger, brady, rodgers, manning, and that guy from new orleans too..just saying..

victor-we cant win a superbowl at all - we dont have skill players with speed

Marino was not an immobile QB. Watch the Bears victory in 1985. He could move quite well until his Achilles' tendon blew out.

And then when he became immobile, he was lost.

mando's power... forced ESPN to ask if Reggie was staying in NO lol

settle down mayock - you like everyone damnit

Sean Payton strongly suggests New Orleans has vision for Reggie Bush and will keep him.

let's be patient guys, I can't stand Ireland/Sparano, but

I think FREE AGENCY could be the KEY...

what are some names??

RB BUSH, Deangelo Williams

WR Steve Smith, Ocho Cinco

would love a Vet Oline

TE

OLB

I must say I am a Dolphins fan since 1968...I have never been more sad at the direction of this once proud franchise than I am today. No surprises..everything we do is safe. Safe does not win Superbowls. Our great teams were not "angels". The great Raider teams were not "angels". If we want to play in a division with the upstart Jets and Patriots then we beetr start doing things different.

Mandy, if you ever say "Marino was lost" again we'll have issues!

Thinking about it, the modern day Center is more concerned about pass protection than straight ahead blocking.

well i guessing you never got a text back from the guy with the dophins

You give me too much credit, Image. I was too busy making sure the sun shines again tomorrow to address ESPN interview. LOL.

Greg - hard to be proud when it's been almost 30 years since a title was brought to Miami

with miamis next selection - the dolphins pick - boooooooring- slow methodical. i said methoDICKal big mondo. that waz cool

Vereen to Pats?? Looks to be a bit of a reach?

Greg...hate to say, but Jets went safe when the picked d'brickashaw and mangold. Almost made the SB last year with a marginal, at best, QB.

Marino...and mobile will NEVER be in the same sentence my friend!!??!! What are you smoking Aramando?? Marino had "pocket presence" he would avoid the pressure and had that quick release that allowed him to avoid the sack.

who knew Mando was a meterologist too! lol
