Draft Day No. 3 live blog starts here at noon

When the draft resumes this afternoon, I'm hoping the Dolphins land a certain RB that I've had my eyes on for a while whose name I will not type here because, believe it or not, I've recently learned at least one rival AFC team reads this blog for updates on what the Dolphins are thinking -- obviously not recognizing that I don't know squat about squat.

Joke's on them!

Nonetheless, I won't mention this RBs name at this point, not that it's a big secret.

Lookit, the Dolphins need speed today. It is lacking for them on offense. It is lacking on defense, although not to the same degree. It is definitely lacking on special teams.

Speed, speed, speed, speed, speed, speed!

When Bill Parcells first started constructing this team it started looking like a mirror image of the 1990 New York Giants for a while there. The Dolphins were big, hulking, and bulking. This team looks very imposing in the airport.

But the game has changed since 1990 and is played on the field not in an airport. So the plodding Fins have some adjusting to do.

They need speed to be more dynamic. They need speed to make sure those kickoff returns and punt returns stop going 90 yards in the other direction. They need speed to do something that we haven't seen around here a lot lately: Blow somebody up with a 90-yard punt return of their own, or hit them on a 74-yard run, or throw a 68-yard bomb over the top of their defense, or return an interception 101 yards.

So my hope is today is about turning the Incredible Hulk into Flash. Or something like that.

The hope for today is a:

Change of pace fast RB.

A return man. Must be ... fast.

(Hopefully the Dolphins can get two for one by having the fast RB also be a fast return guy.)

OLB help to punish Tom Brady and Slim Shady now that they're boys in New England.

Maybe a  NT. He's the only one that doesn't need to be fast. Don't sleep on the NT, by the way.

[NOTE: Live blog happening right here at noon. Yesterday was the biggest day on this blog in all of 2011. Enormous! Thank you. And thanks to that team for checking in. I don't know anything.]

Yes ALoco all of that is true...Horrible place Montana. The altercation was in SanDiego

yeah - what xdotthesenuts said !

Seems Henne is staying. I do wonder what upside they see in him?

Stop over reacting sissies... Man went to save his family. Just because you get charged with something doesn't mean the world is over. Be real. No one is perfect, not even you.

hes not a criminal oscar. theres something to be said about that in miami

Darryl, I agree, I think Jimmy Wilson can contribute....it's a shame his collegiate career was delayed by a bogus charge. Glad he's with us, bold move by our team, for once!

YOU ALL ARE LOSEARS

DD ,

WE GOT TO SUPPORT A GUY WHO DEFENDED HIS MOTHER AGAINST A THUG ...MOTHER'S DAY IS COMING NEXT WEEK AND WE ALL NEED A STORY AS THIS PONE TO IN SPIRE ALL TO DEFEND OUR MOTHERS .


IS IT TRUE MONTANA IS NO 51 IN EDUCATION ?

OJ HAD A BOGUS CHARGE ALSO

Im only a loser because im connected to BIG MONDO damnit - not my fault

WE ALL NEED A STORY LIKE THIS ONE TO INSPIRE ALL

You have the wrong guy, lil a, I haven't said sh-t about the guy and I don't really care.

first, this wilson guy looks like a mean sob. the video of him knocking the qb's helmet off is great. now, after two years of false imprisonment, can you imagine how much pent up anger he has? maybe he'll teach sean smith how to make a tackle.

BIG MONDO can you inspire me

WILSON IS A HERO FOR ALL OF US ,TO PROTECT AND DEFEND HIS MOM .

Aloco....learn how to spell the names that you call people..or dont type at all...

Ah, sorry lil a, you talking about Sonia. She just likes to have her fun in the Bahamas. Harmless.

im always confused oscar. remember im attached to BIG MONDO

RHYONFINFAN.....THAT WAS FAKE ALoco

three cheers for chowder and fasano. booo

So BIG MONDO is that confused, lil a?

Yes Aloco we should celebrate our Mothers. Absolutley. This is what happened. Watch his you tube highlights to see how he hits. Anyway, Wilson has a ton to prove. He knows this. I think he lacks footspeed to play cover corner. Maybe nickel. Buthis best bet will be SS. and special teams...All of the Griz players in the NFL made it becuase they preach special teams here...

Aloco, have you EVER been to Montana? I have, numerous times, my father in law lives there. Great people, beautiful state....if the university let Jimmy Wilson play there, he's ok in my book! They don't tolerated BS much up there, trust me!!!! Just a friendly FYI, Darryl, am I right?

look at that damn smile on his face, you notice they dont show where his hands are at

have any punters/kickers been drafted yet?

Aloco, please put down that meatball sub. It was his aunt, not his mom.

Armando, thanks for posting the link to the article. It seems like he was indeed defending his aunt, but what really happened? No one knows...

Anyway, do we really need to get involved with players with a checkered past like that?

Not really sure...

BIG MONDO get youre hands off me damnit

wilson GOT A BAD DEAL ,HE WAS JAILED FOR 2 YEARS FOR DEFENDING HIS MOTHER ...WE SHOULD SUPPORT HIM AS ONE OF OUR GOOD PLAYERS.JEFF IRELAND PICKED HIM TO ROVE HE DOESN'T HOLD A GRUDGE VS GOOD PEOPLE .

BIG MONDO is always beating me

FB... WAS IT HIS UNT OR HIS MOTER ? IN EITHER CASE HE SHOULD BE CELBRATED

who did the redskins pick with the two free picks we gave them?

Okay, I give 'em a C+ (and that's pushing it). The first 3 picks, I could live with. Good solid picks. Not great, just good. Then, we went off on a tangent to get a FB (what's wrong with Polite?) and then went defense! ? Still need a young QB to push Henne, a pass catching Tight End, and a Scatback Runningback.
Would love to have had McElroy and that TE from South Carolina on the roster (they were available when we picked). The kid from montana is a good pick, but we could have gotten him after the draft. We basically wasted the last 3 picks IMO. FA could have taken care of FB, DT and CB. Instead, we got to look at FA QB, TE, and RB, positions that cost a lot more and are harder to fill!
If we don't make the playoffs this year, there's gonna be a whole new FO.

ALOCO I THOUGHT MEATBALL SUBS WERE ONLY DURING THE REGULAR SEASON...PUT IT DOWN MAN!!!

the prosecutors charged first degree murder. if someone is killed in a struggle over a weapon, its usually manslaughter. something more must have happened there. in any case, can it be bad to have a man this potentially violent roaming your secondary?

Redsky..It is a lot of small towns. I cannot say that the University under coach Hauck was without its problems.Players included. But Wilson was re-instatesd by new coach Plfugrad, not Hauck who is the coach at UNLV.... But the fans are passionate, and the do not support bad guys. Wilson is not a bad guy. Unfortunate situation.

I do apologize if I offended anyone with my choice of words earlier. It is understnadable to have questions about Wilson. This is for you guys to decide. I am biased because I know, and have seen what this kid can do. And that he has been forgiven by the community...It isn't my place to tell anyone how to feel, or react to a player with a past like Wilson..

THIS JUST IN -- eveyone get your tickets - there going fast - fasano expected to dominate competition

could someone arrest fasano and chowder for impersonating nfl football players

FOR THE SAKE AND OUR RESPECT AND FAITH IN DD'S WORD ,WE ALL SHOULD STOP ATTACKING WILSON AND SUPPORT HIS NEW CHAPTER IN HIS LIFE .....

Darryl Dunphy, how do you know the guy? You say that you've met him.

Everyone should read the link Mando posted about Jimmy Wilson...amazing story.

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/05/sports/ncaafootball/05montana.html?_r=3&pagewanted=1

I hope the kid turns out to be a pro bowler!

BIG MONDO are you alive up there or should we start addressing our questions to omar kelly

I'm the guy that knows everything about Wilson dropped the ball on that one. Not his mom his aunt..You are right..Just trying to defend Wilson. I suppose I should get the facts straight..

for the 5th time BIG MONDO what do you address in free agency besides possible qb damnit

Now that it is over I like what we did. And Wilson, he was defending his family, no problem with that

If a drunken SOB beat and urinated on my aunt, he'd be a dead man.

let me agree bobbyd12 but hey - im just a jackoff-so take that with a grain of salt

WILSON IS A FAMILY MAN .

FB..My ex girlfriend has season tickets. I go to all the home games. Have only missed a few in 10 years..I attend a few booster things every year, and to add Missoula is a really small town and you run into players all of the time..

mallett - stay away, character issues
wilson - convicted of murder, no problem

BIG MONDO has officially left the building and is heading out to taco bell in his low riding pink sripped and purple polkadotted corvair , sombrero in hand. what a beast.

wilson was NOT convicted of murder!

the man is a giant in the field. no --i dont mean out in the field picking tomatoes.

BIG MONDO - you know i love ya man !

Alright guys..You can decide on Wilson. I made a bigger deal out of this then was neccesary. Again I apologize..Gotta go try and fix that broken propane line...Catch you all later..

Aloco..Thank you.

see yah darryl !

BIG MONDO for the 6th time damnit - what in free agency man

Darryl, as a 34 year cop, sometimes you have to take another man's life....that doesn't mean he should suffer the rest of his life, he did what he had to do and none of us were there....but knowing the circumstances and the fact that he was acquitted....I don't know if I would have arrested him in the first place. I worked homicide as a Lt. for 11 years and 2 more years in domestic violence. It did not sound like a strong case from the start. I hope Wilson makes the HOF!!!!! Just for killing the SOB!!! But that's just me!

the wick is getting shorter BIG MONDO . its getting to be about that time . goodbye buddy boy - goodbye eveyone. im going to taco bell for real this time !

REDSKY.......... PLEASE WORK YOUR MAGIC AS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE 007 LT AND TELL US WHAT'S THE STRANGEST CASE YOU HAVE ENCOUNTERED ?

mallett - stay away, character issues
wilson - convicted of murder, no problem

Posted by: society

Stop talking out of your a*s. He wasn't convicted. He spent two years in jail wrongfully. He simply defended his family. I suppose you're the sort who would just stand by and let your Aunt take a beating or get shot? Judging from your a0hole response, I'd say that is just the sort of puss-filled v@gina you are.
