Dolphins pick Vernon, trade down, pick Egnew

The Dolphins used their No. 72 pick in the third round to draft defensive end Oliver Vernon of the University of Miami.

The team then traded No. 73 to the San Diego Chargers for No. 78 overall and No. 183, which is a sixth-round pick.

Vernon, 6-3 and 261 pounds, was told by the team he'll work in the 4-3. Vernon's best year came in 2010 when he had 10.5 sacks. He was suspended in the Nevin Shapiro scandal last year and contributed only 3.5 sacks in six games.

I asked Vernon who he would characterize his Hurricanes career.

"Unfulfilled," he said.

Vernon is the first University of Miami draftee for the Dolphins since Vernon Carey in 2004.

With selection No. 78, the Dolphins then picked Missouri tight end Michael Egnew, a 6-5, 252-pound seam threat who can also block.

Last season, Egnew caught 50 passes for 523 yards and three touchdowns.

Just curious, how did you come across that screen name and are those abbreviations for anything specific?

He also promised he wouldn't do that anymore last offseason but he just couldn't stand it.

Ireland is a MORON!

YG.......... LET'S TALK ABOUT THAT PICK @ 8..............

I WANT YOU TO GO ON RECORD AND TELL US WHAT YOU REALLY THINK OF THAT PICK .................

Aloco..How is Godzilla?

..YG..I think the same can be said for saftey. We have 5 possibly 6 guys back there now(6 if they try Wilson like repoted this week)..I could be wrong. But at this point drafting a saftey in the 4-7 rounds doesn't make a lot of sense IMO. Sure we could find a diamond in the rough. At this point any player that becomes more then a sub package player is a bonus..A player that becomes an all pro..a cherry on top.

My point is that it isn't likely to find a saftey at this point in the draft that will start, or be better then the guys competing. It is possible, just not something the team should be hedging it's bets on.

Don't get me wrong, we can find good players yet. It just requires a bit of luck, and good fortune.

I would like to see a situational MLB drafted, Defensive lineman, another offensive lineman, reciever, and a fullback.

How about osi umenyoura for a fourth

DD........ YOU SAID SOME THING LAST NIGH ON OHIO'S BLOG ABOUT IRELAND HAS SECURED HIS JOB FOR ANOTHER 2 YEARS......YOU R RIGHT ........

We are a team in transition...Ireland doing very well...not sure about Oliver vernon though but I have hope.

..ALoco..WHAT UP!!!!

The heart is a bloom, shoots up through stony ground
But there's no room, no space to rent in this town
You're out of luck and the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck and you're not movin' anywhere
You thought you’d found a friend to take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand in return for grace

It's a beautiful day,
The sky falls and you feel like
It's a beautiful day,
Don’t let it get away

You’re on the road but you’ve got no destination
You’re in the mud, in the maze of her imagination
You love this town even if that doesn’t ring true
You’ve been all over and it’s been all over you

It's a beautiful day,
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day,

Touch me, take me to that other place
Teach me love, I know I’m not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
See the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colours came out

It was a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
A beautiful day

Touch me, take me to that other place
Reach me, I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don’t have you don’t need it now
What you don’t know you can feel it somehow
What you don’t have you don’t need it now
Don’t need it now
It was a beautiful day

DD......... I HOPE YOU R WELL AND I AM HAPPY THAT YG AFTER GOING THROUGH HIS DIVORCE HE MADE PEACE WITH YOU,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

FLIPPER...

.IRELAND IS A SNEAK ....HE KNOWS HE WILL BE OUT THIS YEAR SO HE AGREES WITH THE NEW COACHES ABOUT DRAFTING A QB WHICH GIVE HIM 2 MORE YEARS WITH THE DOLPHINS .........IT'S ALL CONNING AND SNEAKING .......


THAT PICK WAS ROSS AND PHILPEN AND SHERMAN ........NOT OUR GARAGE MANAGER ............

Juron Criner or Joe Adams or Tommy Streeter? I think I lean more towards Adams for explosiveness but Criner has the prototypical size. Streeter has the most potential but least ammount of experience, Which one do you think is the best pick?

It's a beautiful day,
The sky falls and you feel like
It's a beautiful day,
Don’t let it get away

TO BE OR
NOT
TO BE ..........

LOVE IS EVERY THING .......

NOT FOOD ......

Got to say that Ireland has REALLY been drafting at the position of needs in this draft so far.

Great pick in the 2nd round with Martin who will be moved to RT. I was sad to see Quick & Branch off the board when we drafted but addressing the RT position was a MUST in this draft. Thought the pick would be Massie but Martin is a solid kid & has a lot of upside even though he's considered more of a finesse player.

Then we got a DE who can rush the passer & finally took a player from our backyard which I love. As for the TE position we took a guy that can stretch the field to go along with Fasano. I guess this means that we're going to keep Clay @ FB but the more weapons the better.

Obviously we still need a WR & a CB but we picked up an extra 6th round which is nice. So far I really like what we're doing.

decent draft so far happy with tannehill and ot and egnew..vernon not so much but oh well. Cornerbacks not an issue right now, Safety however is a different story as well as reciever...FINGERS CROSSED!

I think the best WR left is Juron Criner WR Arizona

Its a beautiful day folks! Tanne will be MVP and Philbin will be coach of the year.

ITS A BEAUTIFUL F'NING DAY FOLKS!


ESPN REPORTING: Tannehill to Play WR in 2012

Don't let it get away folks.

Its a beautfiful day. The skys are falling...don't let it get away.

ALoco,

Im about 50% onboard ith the Tannehill pick, but 100% support him as our newest Dolphin qb. As for as the other 50%, as far as being on board with him, he'll have to earn that from with superior play.

YG....... SO YOU R IN THE SAME CAMP AS ;;;;;

ROB IN OC
KRIS
ODIN ...YOU ALL HATE THE PICK .............


See the world in AQUA and ORANGE
See NEW ENGLAND right in front of you
See the INTS broken by cloud
See the TUNA game blame
See the bedouin fires at night
See the BOTTON OF THE AFC EAST at first light
See the JETS with a leaf in her mouth

ITS A BEAUTIFUL DAY!

I'M JUST TRYING TO BE OPTIMISTIC.

ITS A BEAUTIFUL DAY! Don't let it get away.

defensive picks Ronnell Lewis & Brandon Boykin/ Ron Brooks
offensive Lamar Miller & Juron Criner/ Joe Adams

MAYBE MARINO CAN PUT TOGETHER AN OWNERSHIP GROUP???

Ireland said getting two impact starters would make it a successful draft.

Martin is the only potential starter so far.

We'll have to wait for the end of this new season if there's two.

Mike Mayock had 36. Olivier Vernon, DE, Miami, thats right 36th going into tonight, where we picked him 40th. So not really a reach there. And if you like the receiving TE that much more than the next WR then what's the difference, they both catch passes. So far so good, keep it going.

ITS A BEAUTIFUL DAY!,
Please do the following as you smoke a thick bone:

See the world in AQUA and ORANGE

Never again use your birth name Odin

Being optimistic here.

Just replace car with QB and you have Ross and Ireland.

http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=whoo+i+want+that+car&view=detail&mid=0F2E1D3B2DACB4364B150F2E1D3B2DACB4364B15&first=0

Hey baby I want that QB.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMxSZQZuBYc

Fins should get a late round QB or FA QB.

Also get Kenny Turner, RB, he'll be a steal. Bush can't do it all.

The only pick I see here so far that I may not have enough info about to lend a decent opinion is Egnew.

Getting Johnathan Martin at pick #42 was a great draft pick. He is rated as high as a Top 25 Player by some... and the lowest I saw his Draft stock evaluated was mid 2nd round. Martin gives Miami solid starters at both Tackle positions and the Center Position.

At O=line Miami now has...

>*Starter >**Swing >***B/U

* Long
* Incognito
* Pouncey
* ???
* Martin

** Murtha (Either Tackle position)
** John Jerry (Guard or Tackle) Likely will be cut.
** Artis Hicks (Either Tackle or Guard)

*** Will Barker (Tackle)
*** Ryan Cook (Guard or Tackle)
*** Ray Feinga (Guard)
*** Nate Garner (Tackle)
*** Jonathan Martin (Tackle)

That is 13 guys and they will likely draft one more. Look For Jerry, Barker & maybe 1 more to be shown the door by Game 1 regular season.

>>> Vernon is a Nasty Mo-Fo.....

He has the tools and the motor... He'll be at home and ready to play... He is also being picked a bit high so I think he rises to the occasion....

>>> Egnew is classic Seam threat TE.

Miami already has a fundamentally strong blocking TE in Fasano, who can also get open and make plays. Clay flashed his versatility and athletic capability last year and got open. He also proved he is not shy over the middle or in a Red Zone Beat Down. We also have another guy we picked up in F/A Named "Les Brown" who is also a solid Blocker and BIG Mo-Fo....

So... Add Egnew, a fast... Tall seam threat to get over the top and fades... Get his coached up. Which is what A guy with a ton of upside and promise needs... and our new coaching staff (Finally) has.... It gives Moore/Garrard a big, tall target to throw to and adds another TE who can work with Fasano on 2 or even 3 TE sets.....

Not sure what happens to Will Yeatman and Jaron Mastrud.... I suppose a good Training camp Competition will sort out who starts, who backs up, who goes to Practice squad... and who makes salary cap space for Wake....

So far....... Jerry, Yeatman, Barker, seem to be camp fodder of the future...

But by far the best pick for the future dynamic and what Miami is building around is Ryan Tannehill. Tannehill is the future in Miami... He needs to be kept safe and sound, learning all he can so that when his rime comes... He is not scared for life by coached who can't keep it in their pants and dumbazzzz fans who want to see a bran new great kid fail just because they cannot abide the pick in the prejudiced little Nugget brains.

DEREK...........YOU UPLIFT OUR SPIRITS ..........GREAT POS @ 12;06 AM

Swamy,
I don't get it.
Have you been sleeping on a sidewalk with no access to the draft?
The Phins have a franchise QB!!!!
Finally!!!!
After 30 years!!!!
In 1983 we drafted a Franchsie QB in the first round and he jerked this fan base off for 18 years without ever winning anything.
Now we have finally drafted another franchise QB and he will surpass Marino in importance and relevance and significance as soon as he wins his 3rd post season game which is more tha Marino ever did.

Odin (aka D4D),
John Jerry is the key to this s hit.
Keep in mind when Soprano was thier Jerry could not get on the filed.
When Soprano got fired Jerry replaced Columbus at RT and we couldn't lose.
So if we got Long-Incogs-Pouncy-Jerry-Martin I can live with that!

With a 4th, a 5th, two in the 6th, & a 7th my guess would be these positions;

1) WR (Maybe Juron Criner, Nick Toon, Marvin McNutt)
2) Another DE/pass rusher (Jared Crick would be a steal)
3) CB
4) Guard
5) ????

WHDP,
You need to add SS to your list.
You know YB, the guy who led our team in tackles last year, yeah he needs to be replaced also.

Be Forewarned

TheSMF (Pricemaster, Phuc Yu...confirmed by Armando) is the same guy asking you all to swallow his load.

Ignore him! Don't respond to him. You are only feeding a sicko to do so.

sabido,
Gigante

At one time there was a very smart poster in here.
His name was PriceMaster.
PriceMaster said 3 years ago: hey, how come we're losing 2nd & 3rd round picks and getting nothing in return?
No reply was given and no action was taken.
Therefore Roth. White, Turner, Henner, Merling, Langford all 2nd round picks left the team and we got no one in return.
As a result we have 7 positions that our starters left for free agency being replaced either by our s hitty player on the roster or by one of these s hitty draft picks.
Good luck to us.

Looks like Ross has finally delivered that suitcase full of congri to Mando. He's been busy deleting anti Ross/Ireland postings tonight.

Delete all you want to Mando. Can't delete this upcoming season though.

Ireland doing a good job in the draft this year. Much deserved gif http://imgur.com/j8SOw

Odin,
Take your fat body and your small penis away from the morror.
This Is serious!!!

That's mirror not morror.

If u watched cane games in 2009/2010 b4 suspension, he is Jason taylor. Guy couoda been a 1st rounder nextcyear. He is gonnacba stud guys. jT was a skinny kid of Akron in 97. Vernon n fly. If he is healthy, he has top talent. I know rb is not a need vutif lamar miller is there 4. U take him. I wan streeter. Brandon washinton at og also. C

Coach golden, he called it. These guys shoulda stayed. Too bad canes. Future canes, say 4 years. Costed miller, Vernon, washington, streeter, millions.

Q: Have I ever seen or spoken to or met Odin?
A: F uck no!

Q; Are you a h omo?

Dom,
You can't read can you?

It's okasy I'll look out for you and you don't have to pay me.

4th rd Lamar Miller RB The University of Miami
5th rd Tommy Streeter WR The University of Miami
6th rd Luke Nix RG Pitt
6th rd Markelle Martin FS OSU
7th rd Audie Cole ILB N.C. State

Have no problem with the Tannehill pick...if this staff believes in Tannehill, you get him. Ideally we could have traded down some and still got him, put there was no trading partners available per Ireland. Martin is a great pick, our RT was by far the weakest position on the team last year. Vernon will be a situational rusher, lined up opposite Wake, good pick. Egnew is a seam tight end...which we haven't had in years, again good pick. Thinking BPA for the rest of our draft!!

Janoris Jenkins:
Please tell me his wife is slender and fine like a mf

Miller will be pick before our next selection. So will Streeter. Btw Vernon a beast and is the next Jason Taylor.

Ireland is on his game, love the Egnew pick, Tannehill is as talented as the top two picked. And better throwing on the run. Just remember, the same media who was saying Miami should trade up to #3 to get him, then said it was a reach at #8. They just are still piling on the Fins, ignore them. Martin great pick, projected mid-first rounder, Vernon, we'll see which Vernon we get, Sophmore or Junior. And Armestead be an excellent FA pick up, First rounder, who sat last year from Health issues. Keep grinding Ireland. Billicheat is reaching all over the board, Pats draft stinks, again. Without Pioli they just continue their slide.

I See that the people are speaking that Odin needs to go, I Hope Armando listens.

Coalition,

I haven't posted since the Vernon pick. You must be SMF as well, he's the only other blogger that thought I was here.

For the first time in my life I actually quit watching an NFL draft.

I hung out with this pretty little Blonde Girl. I played accoustic guitar and DRANK(More than usual). She sang.

I'm so depressed I don't think toying with a retard would cheer me up.

Thanks for the opportunity, but no. Sorry man, not this time.

VERY bad night for Odin. I don't know if he should be banned but he certainly made an ass of himself for hours.

I would say he's definitely in the 'shape up or ship out' category at this point. His act has gone stale.

Phins78,

I saw your post to me. Sorry you feel that way man.

I was just posting my honest opinion. I thought I was allowed to do that. Should I only post my opinions when they agree with yours from now on? Should I run them by you first for your approval?

Again, my apologees.
