« Draft Day 2011: The latest from rumor central | Main | Round 1 newsy recap from Jeff Ireland »

Draft night live blog begins right here, right now

The NFL draft is finally here and this blog is a-live!

So do the Dolphins go with the primetime pick in this primetime draft? Do they trade back as I've been told they are trying to do? Do they pick a quarterback?

"A quarterback makes sense if and only if they think a FRANCHISE quarterback is there," Dan Marino tweeted today. "Otherwise, I am firm believer in taking the Best Player Available."

So whom would the man once hired to lead the Dolphins franchise -- he quit two weeks later -- consider the franchise quarterbacks in this draft?

"With my CBS gig I spend more time watching the QBs on Sunday so it wouldn't be fair for me to say if a guy is or isn't a franchise QB," Marino followed with another tweet.

The national insider types are reporting there will be a run on QBs in the top 12 picks. We'll see about that. Aside from the QBs, here are some names I'm going to ask you to keep in mind:

Alabama RB Mark Ingram if they do not trade back.

VT RB Ryan Williams if they trade back.

Florida C Mike Pouncey if they do not trade back.

Purdue OLB Ryan Kerrigan if they do not trade back.

Kansas State's Daniel Thomas if they do trade back.

I'm rooting for the trade back. OK, meet me in the comments section. Let's go a-live!

Didn't see that ponder pick coming

Chad Henne starting to sweat buttets about now.

Andy Dalton #15?

Wow...Maybe Dalton IS IN PLAY...WTF

fairly and su holly molly

Fins will trade back and still get Dalton.

Fairley finally goes to Detroit.

CraigM...ha ha...if I did...then my error...no...it was UP for Gabbert or down for Mallet....I cant beleive Ponder has gone before Mallet....This draft is mesmerizing...

Mando...make a call now....make it RIGHT now...

Good one Darryl

Ponder will surprise, like Rodgers did, he's a 3 year project though and...a reach at 12!

No free agency is helping these QBs out

WOW - what a sick D in Detroit now baby

Ok Fairley and Suh will go beast mode in the backfield

Settle down, man.

Nick Fairley looks like he could have a role in the new revenge of the nerds movie...

Suh will keep Erkle in line.....great pick....


sorry dishpan - no prince or ferries in miami. been saying this from beginning

fairly gone, now bowers or dalton?


rams have options.

lions are a scary d line now!

Do we play Detroit this year??


if henne was in this draft he'd have been picked by now. teams are desperate for a QB. Stick with Henne and build around him.

Lol lil Mondo. I want Ingram but Prince would be a great pick

Quinn, Bowers, Amukamara, Fairley still on the board?

no we don't play detroit for 4 years

I can see ponder before mallet, mallet's a possible management problem ponder is not.

The way this draft is going if we trade back even Mallet might not be there

Fairley is not a good pick here.

They had other needs (since Suh is already there) and, even in a 4-3, two DT's is not a luxury that Detroit can afford.


Do you remember saying you wouldn't be surprised if Mallett would be the first QB and I said 'no chance'. I said at LEAST four would go ahead of him...well it's four and counting. The question now is does Mallett go first round?

Were taking Kerrigan if he is there, and moving Misi inside, LB set for years, that is if we are stuck at 15

Trade down to early 20's and we still have lots of good players left after all these QB's have been picked

Robert Quinn

I think we are going defense if we don't trade back...

Ireland has more options that he could have even hoped for.

0x80.......they Ireland can earn his pay check and get job security all in one swoop by picking Mallett...


NO INGRAM....no way...pleeeeeeeeeeese

Rams gotta take a pass rusher.

Will Ireland pass on Prince?

Who wudda thunk it!

crazy al has just rang ireland, and offered all his picks this year and a 1st next year for #15

settle down boys , girls and big mond -- we are trading down oopps i mean you are trading down -god!

With the deal CLE made with ATL i believe them to be in prime position to go after a FA QB... Maybe Kolb???

Our front office is on eggshells, so a reach on a qb at 15 WILL NOT HAPPEN

Dolphins take Ingram if available, please.

costanza might go

PRINCE is the pick man!!! Our secondary would be set up nice.


Ted Ginns Family will be drafted next...

I'm drafting Andy Dalton's girlfriend

Trade down. Need players ...

Maybe Robert QUINN....id be ok with that


You might want to start thinking about Prince Amakamura.

Quinn to St Louis


To many options isn't a good thing...

remember the kiss rule


Craig M its probably not a matter of if he goes but when he goes now in the first round.

With the way the draft has played out, Armando, still thinking Pouncey?


you must admit all of these qb's flying off the board so early is shocking everyone.

Agreed redsky, but can't pass on Prince
