Dolphins do their homework at cornerback

What about a cornerback for the Dolphins? It sounds strange because Vontae Davis and Sean Smith are young and under contract for 2012, But the Dolphins are clearly thinking about their possibilities at the position because the club needs nickel cornerback help.

During their time at the Indianapolis combine, the Dolphins interviewed both Janoris Jenkins and Dre Kirkpatrick -- two outstanding talents with obvious red flags -- as possible cornerback additions. (No, not at No. 8 I would think.)

Kirkpatrick, an outstanding talent from the University of Alabama, was recently a charged with marijuana possession. And although the charge was dropped a couple of weeks later, the Dolphins no doubt asked the corner about the incident during their 15-minute meeting.

What might Kirkpatrick have answered?

"It was just me being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and the guy that left the marijuana in the car turns himself in," Kirkpatrick said of the incident in which a friend eventually admitted the drug was his.

"He didn't want to put me in that bad situation. He signed an affidavit saying that I was unaware of the marijuana being in the car and the charges have been dropped."

Kirkpatrick talked to San Diego, Detroit, Tampa Bay, Oakland and the Dolphins while in Indianapolis. I can understand why. He's a fine player.

He talked about how he gave up a touchdown against the Florida Gators this past season. He said it was his first touchdown scored.

For the year, someone asked.

"Ever," he responded.

Jenkins is similarly talented although his history probably raises more flags and eyebrows and anything else that is raised in questionable situations. 

Jenkins originally went to Florida but was forced to finish his college career at North Alabama after a serious run of trouble. He flunked a drug test, was arrested twice for marijuana possession, and again a third time for his involvement in a bar fight.

Oh, and he's got four children by three different mothers -- a budding Antonio Cromartie, if you ask me.

"I made a few mistakes and I learned from them,” he said. “Everything I did, I did. I’m admitting it. I did it. I’m looking to put that in my past and move forward.”

Jenkins was forced to finish his college career at North Alabama after a run of trouble. He flunked a drug test, was arrested twice for marijuana possession and a third time for his involvement in a bar fight. He’s also 23, and already fathered four children by three different mothers.

"I'm pretty sure it will hurt me," Jenkins said. "but I'm looking past that, looking forward to moving on and just being successful from here on out."

Some Monsters displaying their skills at the Combine. Can you imagine a 250 lbs. LB running a 4.4? A mountain of a DE at 4.8? Wow!

I say AVOID Manning, Flynn, Tannehill. 3 BIGGG mistakes.

Does anyone REALLY believe Flynn is a franchise QB??? You have to be kidding me. Manning has too little time left, if any, and Tannehill is another acorn QB.

Listen, I'm telling you. There are some young dudes now that are off the charts. We have to tag some of those.

Reading some earlier posts, some guys think Tannehill will go 8, really?
And Kris- that was not me who posted earlier about you... it was the same troll posting to itself in whatever little spat that was.

I believe it will be a mistake to let Paul Soliai walk before exploiting all his potential.

Who wants to go yet another year with no franchise QB? And what are our guarantees for getting one next year? None.

RG3 is a guy you trade the farm for. Do it and be done with it.

How many DC's are going to want to prep for RG3? That will be ever increasing work!


I would really like to know what qb's have won a Superbowl with RG3 skill set? I don't remember any. The problem with guys like this is that they start to carry a team. Coverage doesn't break down right away and they start to run. In the NFL that can mean injury. I you look at Manning and Brady, both don't run very often. A qb that runs a lot is doing a teammates job and thereby not doing his own.

RG3 is a pocket passer and a throw first Q/B .. i dont know where you get your info from ...must be just a troll .. either way yall argue over nothing and dont know what yall are talking about ... brush up on your NFL draft before you act like you know what your talkin' about

The NFL Combine has nothing to do with Football, this thing is a scam from the top down.

What spot was Blaine Gabbert selected? Christian Ponder? I believe Tannehill is better than them, more athletic, more intelligent.

The way they're writing stuff over on Yahoo, you'd think the Manning-to-Miami deal is practically a done deal. They're saying we're the team he's most interested in. And, that Miami is looking for a good Tight End. But, our #8 pick will probably be a Pass-Rusher. Either they're just re-hashing old news or maybe they know something we don't.

I think it's all still speculation, in my opinion.

Easy question. None. Because there has never been another with his skill set. Neither Vick nor Newton have an arm as good and accurate as his. RG3 is a superior passer that just happens to be extremely dangerous on the run.

Bro, when a 6'5", 360 lbs runs a 4.8, you have to wake up.

Always there are lots of smoke-screens going into the Draft. From everybody.

That is not saying much. Neither of those were worth more than a 3rd round pick. Tannehill seems like a bigger Thigpen to me, but not much better. No way do I see him as a franchise QB ever.

You sure, Vern? It's your opinion vs the Vikings and Jacksonville GM's.

Your basing your thought process on the color of the man's skin and not his skill set. There have been two QB's in near history who have won with his skill set, they are:

1) Steve Young (A run 1st Q.B. who learned to wait in the pocket and when he got to the dance threw for 6 TD's which is an NFL Record)

2) John Elway (rocket armed but still remember him in that helicopter tackle for a 1st down towards the end of reg. Vs. the Packers)he played in a total of 5 S.B.'s by the way.

Answer your ?????????????

It's always amusing to me when most People here value their opinions above Professionals who base their livelihood on their being right. Well, I guess that's why they are where they are and most of the rest here, excavating dirt.

RGIII is going to be a STUD as will LUCK.
Manning will broke-down and will never be the same.
Tannehill can't throw the long ball.
Flynn has a noodle arm.

Who should Miami go after?


RGIII


Does Ireland have the balls to make the trade??

The Vikings have our ex GM who was so horrible that after several years here there were no more than a few of his draftees still on the team. It's amazing he got another job.

Gabbert is a frightened chicken poster boy for teenage girls. He did not look the part at all. Another bust.

oscar, don't be fooled by job titles. They don't mean whoever has them know what the heck they are doing. Speilman is a bonafide loser GM based on the performance of his picks. His record is beyond terrible.

How hands off will Ross be with the Fins QB hunt?

Who is he consulting with outside that's not on his payroll?

Does anyone know if he's spoken to Marino or Shula?

Will he "tell" his staff who he wants for QB and get it done and then say pick the rest yourselves?

I know Speilman(boy, do I know him). BTW, how much more is he making than you?

Teenage girls don't know how to fukk. You have to teach them. A waste of time.

oscar, the last 10 presidents made more money than me but I am certain I am smarter than all of them.

It's a fact the smartest people (engineers, scientists) do not make the most money.

The fins FO picked Pat White, Patrick Turner, Henne, how smart was that.

I believe that the determination that Ross showed when he went after Harbaugh tells me he'll make the QB decision.

He'll leave the details to the underlings.

Sure, make no mistake, Ross is in control of his team. Ireland hasn't even reached puberty yet, he is not calling the final shots on the big decisions.

Tell me about it, Vern.

Definitely Ross shows determination in getting what he wants, but in regards to Football talent, somebody has to point him in the right direction. No?

A QB will eventually win a SB with two different teams just as some team will go undefeated.

Assuming Manning has 2 to 3 good years left in the tank, who's to say he won't be the first QB to do it?

Why do i get the feeling somebody is talking to himself.....

Tom.....if that wasn't you....then its all good.....

Don't bother replying Oscar...or any Oscar screen names....i'm going to sleep....

on 2nd thought....go ahead and type away....it will make good reading during breakfast......

Yesterday was my Night, and I gave away many Prizes. Good.

Aside from having a future HOF QB filling the seats and having no black outs, I believe Ross might be thinking that the odds are good for Manning to set this record (assuming he's healthy).

Then again, would he still offer him a contract if he's not ready to play from game one?

Teenage girls don't know how to fukk. You have to teach them. A waste of time.

Posted by: oscar canosa | February 27, 2012 at 09:18 PM

Uh oh.......
You probably shouldn't have mentioned that.

oscar, have you ever met Bubba?

No, but if she knows the maneuvers, I'd like to.

Nothing much in fukking. You have to be sure to mantain your rythm. If you're faulty at that, practice with a Metronome.

oscar is living off ancient, fading memories.

oscar mocono is a pillow bitter

oscar,
Count to yourself while you're pumping and you can easily stretch it out to 500-600-700 strokes yo.
That's what I do.

Just don't tell her you were counting afterwards

I like Stephen Hill - WR from GA tech in the 2nd round (hopefully third round) I have a pinched nerve in my back and have been watching the combine. THat kid CAN PLAY. Why he went to option offense in college is beyond me. Someone is going to get one helluva player. Maybe we can rid of diva Marshall and his fat contract and dropped passes.

Just sayin'

Stupid column. If the Dolphins waste a pick on another Pac Man Jones, then they are worse off in the front office than I thought. Kirkpatrick would be fine I guess, but he will need to learn to get a whole new set of freinds to hang with or it will be his demise.

pricemaster the back stroker = oscar the pillow bitter

well its official now with the rams saying they will deal pick. and have had talks with clevland, washing ton, and miami. so least we are trying

The St. Louis Rams have decided to trade the No. 2 pick, league sources said Monday.

According to sources, the Rams already have had trade discussions with the Cleveland Browns (No. 4), Washington Redskins (No. 6) and Miami Dolphins (No. 8), each of whom is scheduled to pick in the top eight in April's draft.
.

When do we fill the glaring hole at GM?

When you have an Ireland as a GM you hope and pray the owner meddles.

Your Right Mark. The love for the running quarterback. I will take a pocket passer over a Michael Vick anyday. But there is still this love of the running quarterback out there in the press. They can have RG3. I will take Flyn.Pocket passers win Super Bowl's.

Mike

You know less than nothing, less.

Flynn? He was a 7th round pick. Why? He sucks, weak arm. He had two good games on a SB team. Once DC's look at the tape on him he is burnt toast.

Secondly, RG3 and Vick do not belong in the same sentence. RG3 has a far better arm and throwing motion, so say all the coaches, that Vick ever had.

You dumb white boys need to wake up and realize RG3 is the real deal and comparing him to Vick only makes you look stupid.

And I'm white.

Heck, Tebow throws better then RG.

lol tebow is horrible. griffin throws the best deep ball of every qb in draft

This is what i dont understand, why would the Rams be the ones that get all the picks to get RG3? If they have Bradford seems like they wouldnt pick Rg3 anyway.To me the Vikings would be the ones you would have to trade up to in order to get Rg3.Ive read nothing about this scenario. Is there something Im missing?

Steve, Funny...but not even Tebow's mommy could believe that, and you don't either. Funny though. Me? I'd take Cleo Lemon and a box of cracker jacks over Tebow.

wrong jimmy because if u trade up to 3 and another team trades up to 2 then u just lost out

jimmy, are you really that stupid or are you just playing?

Deep ball? And who is going to catch it?? Brandon Marshall? If its not the Pro Bowl..he isn't catch anything but a cab.

Run Ricky Run

In addition to dusty's point, if the Vikings want RG3, who is only 10 times better than Ponder, they won't trade down to begin with.

Some people have toasted marshmallows for brains.

wrs catch the ball fish, thats what they do,lol

Come on Ireland, draft a winner you knobby knee, man breasted, toe ring wearin, ginger yenta!

Look for Peyton to feed crow to alot of people on this blog. Just saying
