Riley Reiff to Dolphins at No. 8? Are you kidding?

Riley Reiff is a good football player, OK? I have nothing against the offensive tackle from the University of Iowa. I have watched a couple of games in which he has played and he's always performed well enough.

And that, coupled with his size and ability and smarts, is a reason he's considered a top of the first round type of talent. But to the Dolphins? Are you kidding me?

God, I hope not.

Seems Reiff to the Dolphins is a popular stream of thought among NFL draft analysts. ESPN's Mel Kiper penciled Reiff to Miami in his first and only (so far) mock draft. NFL Network talent analyst Bucky Brooks similarly has Reiff going to the Dolphins with the eighth overall selection. And NFL Network reporter Steve Wyche has the Dolphins picking Reiff as well.

I get it.

Reiff is an offensive tackle. He's perfect for the Dolphins to fill the void at right tackle -- even though he played left tackle at Iowa. And, of course, his connections to Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz makes him a natural for the Dolphins because Miami coaches Joe Philbin and Mike Sherman know and respect Ferentz and value his players.

But ...

Riley Reiff, for all his attributes and gifts and the logic of filling an obvious void, would be a terrible pick for the Dolphins at No. 8. Why?

Value.

There is simply not a great deal of value of picking a right tackle in the top 10 selections of the draft. No, there's no rule that says this is a fact. No, there's no philosophy or statistic that has proven this to be the case. But work with me for a second and let me state my case ...

{UPDATE: Since posting this, I got a call from an NFL scout who reads the blog and he told me he has Reiff as a guard. And he said he's not alone in the thinking. So there's that.]

The draft is not only picking the right players, but also getting them in the right round to maximize their value. And in the top 10 a team with so many needs as Miami has should not be investing on a player that neither will score points, nor prevent points from being scored. The offensive right tackle will never, not even on his best day, throw a TD pass, or intercept a pass, or sack the quarterback, strip him of the ball and run it in for a TD. He will never make a game-changing play.

And that game-changer is the only kind of player that brings value to a team in the top 10 picks.

Said another way, I want my team to pick a quarterback, a cornerback, a wide receiver, a 3-4 OLB or 4-3 DE. I want playmakers drafted in the top 10.

I do not want grunts.

Grunts are wonderful additions later.

Why?

Because grunts don't lead a team to the playoffs or the Super Bowl. Playmakers lead teams to the playoffs or the Super Bowl.

That doesn't mean I am against drafting offensive linemen later in the first round or anytime after that. And some special offensive linemen deserve top 10 consideration depending on a team's relative needs and whether the player is a left tackle or center.

But a right tackle? Or a guard?

In the top 10?

Quick, who was Green Bay's right tackle this year while they went 15-1? Quick, who was the last right tackle to be named NFL MVP or even his own team's MVP?

Yeah, thought so.

A top 10 pick is a premium, premium draft choice. It should be used to select premium, premium NFL playmakers.

And right tackles, no matter how gifted, do not qualify. Reiff, by the way, is No. 77 in the video below.

knew=new....

Three days ago Home reported again that MVP QB Peyton Manning was throwing lasers with great velocity.

Of course the Dumbed Downed Sheeple absorbed the nonsense mainstream media disinformation conspiracy theories that MVP QB Peyton Manning had a "noodle arm"

Once again the real conspiracy theory is the one reported to the slaves and the dumbed downed sheeple,
That Peyton Manning cannot throw and is all done

The slaves w no independent thought process have gobbled up the mainstream media report that Peyton could not even comb his own hair cuz of the "nerve regeneration" process

So the sheeple grabbed on to their new vocabulary words and trying to sound professional and intelligent regurgitated their new phrase, "nerve regeneration"

Of course instantly all the puppet slaves of the main stream media in their quest to sound intelligent and knowledgeable to their peers spread the new catch phrase , "nerve regeneration" and the fact that Peyton Manning's neck was still "fusing"

lol

Home again & again warned the slaves against the brainwashing of disinformation from mainstream media
Yet the sheeple have no independent thought process so immediately they regurgitate the disinformation as quickly as possible

lol

Like when there are a dozen toxic chemtrails sprayed DIRECTLY OVER THE HEADS of the ignorant dumbed downed sheeple
Now the newly sprayed TOXIC chemtrails and chemclouds are expanding, reflecting & blocking out the sun above the dummies.
The Dummies are told by FOX news and other giant mainstream media corrupt communication outlets (run similar to China's news for the slaves, only more clandestine and dishonest) that there is no chemtrails or severe weather being created, controlled and steered to be used as a Weapon of Mass Destruction every day/week/month globally.
Then the sheeple even with ALL the proof and information right in front of their face or at their finger tips cannot figure it out themselves.
So next, the dumbed downed ignorant sheeple are told only nut jobs,whackos or communist pinkos see chemtrails, man made severe weather or know what HAARP is really used for.
Of course it is a "conspiracy theory" and that has a negative connotation, so who would want to be on that side and be called a "nut job"?
The dumbed downed sheeple as well simply not think, not look up at the skies, not read, stay off the internet and go to the government pimp drug dealers at CVS Caremark or Walgreens and get some morehigh doses of pharmaceutical dope and remain blissfully ignorant ;)

have a HAARPy day :(

Last week, a TV segment on chemtrails was presented on a CBS affiliate out of Atlanta. Although the story was presented as a conspiracy theory, TV news reporter Jeff Chirico issued the following invitation at the end of the segment: “Now, we know that a lot of you have pictures and videos of chemtrails. We want to see them. So, send them to us at: [email protected] We’ll post them on our website.“

News about the request for chemtrail pictures spread like wildfire around the internet after it was initially reported by The Intel Hub Radio and then Aircrap.org. Both experienced massive spikes in traffic. Many thousands of people sent in their photos. CBS Atlanta received so many emails, their account was overloaded causing many of the emails to bounce.

Why do we have to wait for media to ask for our photos and videos before we send them? The answer is: WE DON’T! All TV News shows, news radio shows, and newspapers want your photos and videos. They just don’t know it yet. One of them is about to break the biggest story ever! Watergate pales in comparison.

All we need is for one of the media giants to provide fair and in-depth coverage of the geoengineering-chemtrail crimes (similar to this local TV news segment, but much more in-depth) and the others will follow. The general populace will be awakened. There will be an outcry to elected officials to immediately stop the spraying (similar to what former FBI Chief Ted Gunderson said). This WILL lead to the truth being revealed and a worldwide stoppage of the spraying.

Skeptical? All we ask is that you give it a try. It will take you at most 60 minutes to do as instructed below. And, you don’t have to do it all at once. Spend 10 minutes for six days and then you can rest. Understand this: your action is crucial to our success! If you want the spraying to stop, then you must take action NOW. People around the globe are waking up to the fact that things just aren’t right, and are now ready to hear and believe YOUR story.

OK, let’s get to work. As mentioned above, there are two ways to contact the media online: (1) via email; or (2) via the “Contact Us” forms on their websites. Email address and contact links are provided below.

IMPORTANT NOTES

Only send one or two photos via email. We will quickly overload their email inbox if everyone sends a dozen photos or more. You can also provide multiple links in the text of your email.
You cannot send attachments via the contact forms, but you can provide links. We suggest that you provide a link to a website that has photos or a video of chemtrails in your area. For example, if you live in Sussex, England, then go to google.com and search for: Sussex chemtrails. Then click on the images and/or the video link on the left. After you land on the website containing photos or video that represents what is happening in your area, just copy the URL from the address bar at the top of your browser, and paste it into your text.
You can save time by composing one email to yourself and use the blind copy (BCC:) feature and put all the media email addresses in so that they will all go out at once while keeping the other addresses confidential, it will just appear as if you sent it to yourself while they get a copy.
Some of the contact forms are limited in the amount of text that you can enter. So, you need to be concise. For example:

Well, Home, what you want us to do? It is a fact that if population growth is not controlled, EVERYBODY will go hungry pretty soon. So, neither the younger nor the older are being targeted. Only those between 30 and 51. Hee,hee.

Y'all excuse me, but I have to wash my plates.

Guess its time for a new posting from Mando! All this talk about chem trails is making me ...SICK!

I hope that Mando can post something about the latest video of Manning throwing at Duke University.

OR....

How the Dolphins should be PROUD they missed on Jeff Fisher and his defensive coordinator Greg Williams!

This Reilly reiff thing is all just because there is an assumption we get manning. If we get manning we will draft a olineman first

Home is glad we did not get Jeff Fisher

Great Poser Boy coach w the hip sunglasses and all, but in his entire career he has not really done or won anything

w the exception of the Buffalo game on the backwards lateral pass on KO
Fisher has done NOTHING to coach wins

just a POSER BOY and now a WAY OVER PRICED ONE


8. QUINTON COPLES DE UNC

40. BRANDON THOMPSON DT CLEM

72. BOBBY MASSIE OT MISS

104. MICHAEL EGNEW TE MIZZ
136. TRENTON ROBINSON FS MCHS
168. EMMANUEL ACHO OLB TEX
200. RYAN MILLER OG COL

Home thinks we very well may also get center Jeff Saturdy in FA

Thus moving Pouncey to guard

and w Murtha returning healthy
w Long, Incognito, Carey & Jerry

Home thinks Miami will draft a DE like Coples or
DT Poe(346 lb unbelievably quick & strong 44 reps w 225lb)

and perhaps one of the 2 elite college CBs

Home would really like to see DT Poe as part of our new 4-3 base defense

Chemtrail Forecast System has been 100% accurate in forecasting chemtrails near Burlington and Graham, North Carolina for the last couple of weeks since I discovered the site. It would be interesting to know whether his forecasts are that accurate elsewhere. I have no idea how he does this. It's been very helpful to know in the early morning when we're going to have a chemtrail free day. I can go outside and enjoy the sky, without any worries about seeing those evil things. Here's the link:

Home,

No offense, but whatever the NWO, HARRPY, WEATHER Controllers are doing, I'm loving it.

We just got over a foot of snow(12 inches)in the last 12 to 16 hours.

From 4:00 this morning until 6:00 I raked in 600 hundred from County Contracts. From 6:00 to 9:00 I made almost a Grand in private accounts.

$1500 this morning already and it's still coming down. I'm putting a little Anti-Freeze(Bourbon)in my coffee and heading back out as quick as I can!

HARRPY DAYS are HERE!

Let it snow, Let It Snow.......LET IT SNOW!!!!

Good Job Odinseye!

Always like when the working man earns a healthy check

Home wishes he was skiing in some of those flakes

However it looks like the south Florida beach this afternoon. We have had a couple chemtrail free (or at least from the naked eye)days.
Very sunny in the 80s and the SE Florida ocean/beach water is nice and clean aqua blue-green
Hot sexy chis from all over the world vacationing will be in abundance :)

BTW this thing is going, I already forgot who Barry Reiff is.

and it's HAARPy

The Severe Weather Weapon of Mass Destruction located owned and operated by the United States Air Force and operated by black ops

HAARP

High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program

If you get Manning you must make the line strong has possible.

Agreed, Mo. If that's really P. Manning throwing in that video, then our #1 priority is to fix the R side of our O-line via trade/draft.

you tubbe:

3/2/2012 -- HAARP rings, Scalar Squares, and Ghost storms - IL, KY, IN, TN, VA, MS, AL, GA

the chemtrails being sprayed are loaded w particulates deliberately to work with RF waves and excite the atmosphere creating, intensifying and steering the tornadoes in the USA Friday and Saturday

speaking of Saturday
hope the Dolphins sign FA center Jeff Saturday w MVP QB Peyton Manning

have a HAARPy day :(

Saturday as center will help Peyton manning and
Pouncey can move to his original position of guard strengthening the O-line w the return of Murtha and the development of John Jerry which was evident in the end of the 2011 regular season

That's one possibility, Home. Depends on how much Peyton will ask for.

There are reports that Dallas Clark, other Colts are working with Peyton Manning now. No surprise if he signs with Indianapolis again.

Yes I want to remain a Colt. Even though they fired my best friends, GM and my lifelong OC has departed, I want to dedicate my last two years to rebuilding the team back to 8 and 8. Who cares about another Ring when I have an opportunity to show loyalty to a boss who hasn't shown any loyalty to anyone. I would rather be Colt than win any more SB's. I'll let my buddies Rothlis and Brady win a few more.

Hmm..well, if you put it that way...

1500 this morning already and it's still coming down. I'm putting a little Anti-Freeze(Bourbon)in my coffee and heading back out as quick as I can!
HARRPY DAYS are HERE!

OMAR HAS INTEGRITY AS A JOURNALIST ..............

Coconut head Kelly has NO integrity and thinks fans want to hear about his favorite black rap music all day long and then some real poor insight on the Miami Dolphins and their players.

Oh, Philadelphia! Mmmmmmmm.

OMAR HAS INTEGRITY ,HE'S A SYMPOL OF HONOR AND SELF RESPECT .....

Omar Coconut head Kelly is hated by most Dolphin players including LB Burnett who told the lil puke Kelly "To Strap The Pads On Home Boy!" "Otherwise Keep Your Mouth Shut, You Know Nothing About Football or this Team"

HOME......... WHY OMAR REPRESENT THE SUN ,THEN ?

HOME...... GIVE US YOUR TAKE ON ARMANDO'S INTEGRITY ,PLEASE ?
