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!

pretty boy is gabbert big mondo

Gabbert the Next Quinn?

Craig M....simple Math.......I want the FINS to draft Mallett...and Mallett is still on the board.....

Yup...looks good to me......

If Washington and Minnesota pass on Gabbert I hope we do too. Because theres probably a reason.

Gabbert won't last to Fins.

Hey lads....im freakin out...any one have a list yet...Armando...make a call right now...who do we pick..????

Well no crap Gabberts smile is phony! Hes pissed that Locker was taken over him but he doesnt wanna have a tantrum

Slow curve balls are very tricky.

Mando, yea if he gets past Minnesota I find it very hard for the Dolphins to pass him up definitely would be a steal

F*** the Cowbooys....

I want mallet, BUT definately NOT with our first pick

Theres no way kaep at 15 now....itl be Pouncey or trade down...Id trade up for Gabbert in a heartbeat....or trade down a little and pick up Mallet

itch my head big mondo , I have no arms or hands

UT.....lI woudn't have been mad if we had gotten Locker......

but....

My man Mallett is still there

Mallett has trouble picking up the blitz and has off-field issues. I think he will free-fall and be a value pick in the 3rd round, although it only takes one team...

Smith to Dallas.

This is going GOOD for Miami!

Shocker there....

Make a call Mando...who will we pick...call it now......any one have a list yet of picks?

mondo I love you

Easier there, little amondo. I might have to use the zipper on you. You don't want that.

DALLAS JUST RUINED OUR TRADE BACK SCENARIO WITH THE BEARS.

Good pick by the Cowboys...they can afford it.....they have all thr other peices in place....

Nick Farely still on the board? WOW.

Mallet against the blitz is worse than Henne. Thats a fact

I thought there were better OT's. But well, same as little amondo, what do I know?

Pouncey tweeted his peepee off he was going to Dallas. Whats he tweetin now?

SO FAR, SO GOOD

Come on you can not take a QB here. You have 2nd rd pick Henne behind an inadequate offensive line with limited weapons and an 80's playcaller last year.

You have to give Henne this year to click. Get V Young as a back up, able to step in should Henne falter.

You get a FA QB for this year and draft QB next year if Henne does not click.

Kris,

Better hope Shanahan doesn't think as highly of Mallett as you do....

RED SKINS IS THE TEAM TO WATCH AND THE BROWNS RE GABBERT AND ANDY DALTON

mondo we are trading down , mark my word , listen to me down here damnit , just because your up there and im down here doesnt me no respect

CANT BELIEVE CB PETERSON'S STILL ON THE BOARD.

Tyron Smith. This is the guy I wanted back in January. He's going to be awesome. Him and Long would of given us the best tackle duo in football. He also would of replaced lazy fat boy Vernon Carey, who sucks year in and year out.

Forgot about Fairley...he could ruin everything.....and I woudn't be mad.....

Blaine Gabbert should skip the nfl and go directly to Dancing with the Stars.

Did somebody say trade up?

Get out of here.

One or two more surprises and Belicheat will be calling US to trade up.

Our trade down keeps looking better and better!

Lets see what Ireland is made of Gabbert is ready if we can deal....if not ....Mallet

Gabbart has 2nd round Hair.

Redskins and Raiders, always gotta worry about owner influence, they unpredictable

Browns will probably go Dalton but that's if he's even there at that spot

PLEASE ,LET BROWN AND R.WILLIAMS BOTH GO ....YOUNG PLAYERS ARE GREAT

Don't you guys think Shanahan will take Gabbert. They need a QB.....the kid's not that bad!

Don't underestimate Gabbert. The guy has some SERIOUS recollection.

Washington is going to pick Andy Dalton

Jaguars just traded with the Skins to the #10! Fairley?

DB,

Petrson is gone to the cards.

Prince is still there though./

Good point 0x80......I think Shannahan goes Defense.....or trades back

you got a good sense of humor mondo , youre all right brother. now how about heading to the bathroom , i got to drain myself

Jags get Gabbert

jags are on the clock. did they trade up to take gabbert?

Jacksonville took the pick?

Gabbert to Jax at #10.

So much for Blaine Gabbert to the Dolphins. Resume Pouncey lovefest, please.

We need major upgrades on our o-line, cause our running game sucks, our pass protection sucks, and the players we have suck except for Jake Long. Improving Chad Henne starts with the improvement of the o-line. Simple stuff.

0x80........I TOLD YOU....AND I WROTE THAT DURING THE COMMERCIAL

bye bye gabbert

Jags are dumb.

BEEN 2 TRADEBACKS, THINK WE'RE STUCK AT #15.

Lol dumb pick

Does anybody understand Shanahan trading back Gabbert? Strange move, I think. Could be he has someone else in mind....maybe Andy Dalton?
