Everything Jeff Ireland said today

Yes, you know Jeff Ireland talked to the media today.

I gave you the highlights here.

So I give you the long, all-you-can-read version below:

(On how excited he is about what happened in free agency and heading into the Draft) –“Well, we’ve got a long way to go. Free agency’s not over. Obviously, we like the progress. We felt like we’ve made some progress. There’s been a lot of work that went into it obviously. I’ve got a lot of people to thank. Actually, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank my team, obviously, up to this point, our personnel department, our football administration, in particular, (Executive Vice President of Football Administration) Dawn Aponte and (Manager of Football Administration) Ryan Herman, my right hand guy (Assistant General Manager) Brian Gaine, (Assistant Director of Pro Scouting) Chris Shea. Coach (Joe) Philbin and I worked extremely well together during this process, along with Dawn, and it’s been a lot of fun to work with them. It’s been a lot of busy work, a lot of ups and downs in the process, but nothing we weren’t prepared for. But we’ve got a long way to go. We’ve got some holes to fill."

(On having a lot of draft picks and how that impacts what can happen during the Draft) – “It really hasn’t changed too much of the preparation process. I don’t think I’m going to go into the Draft with more guys on the board or anything like that. We’ll still attack it in the same process we’ve always done and obviously we’ve got to be more prepared to take more players. Obviously, you have options to, I like to use the word ‘ammunition’ to kind of go up if you wanted to and certainly there’s opportunities to do that and there’s also opportunities to move back and move around. So we’ve had a lot of opportunities to do that as well.”

(On how the free agent acquisitions have impacted the team’s needs going into the Draft) – “I think it gave us a lot of flexibility in the Draft. Obviously, I think we helped ourselves in the front line in certain areas, obviously at the wide receiver position (by) getting Brian (Hartline) back, adding Mike (Wallace) and Brandon (Gibson). Adding that to Davone (Bess) and some of the young players we have, obviously that helped us in the wide receiver position. I think that’s a strength of our team now, one of the strengths of our team. Certainly from a depth perspective, Vaughn Martin, Lance Louis, those guys helped our depth. Brent Grimes, adding Brent to the schematics, obviously helps some of the front line things. I think going into the Draft or coming out of free agency, at least this part of free agency, has helped us from just having a little bit more idea of just being able to do what we do in the Draft, and that’s hopefully just picking the best player that we feel like marries a need if we can and not have to reach for anybody."

(On if it’s essential to select a cornerback high in this Draft) – “Well, I don’t want to say it’s essential. Certainly, I’m not going to pinpoint myself exactly where I’m going in the Draft, but I think a corner, I think corners can be selected and have an active role just about anywhere in the Draft. That’s one position that, they develop differently and you can find them, just like Brent Grimes, you can find them in free agency. You can find them in the fourth, fifth, sixth rounds obviously. I don’t think that’s particularly a position you have to have to take high."

(On his philosophy on drafting a need versus taking the best player available) – “We don’t draft vertically. We draft more horizontally. I don’t go through the board and say, ‘This guy over this guy over this guy over this guy over this guy.’ I don’t do that. I have the draft more horizontally by position (and) by round. So if you’re in a position where you have a guy at guard and you have a need at guard, he’s up there, but you have maybe two other players at the same value then you might take the guard because it’s a player of need. But you may have two or three other players that have the same value as that player, but it marries the need. The value marries the need. That’s basically how I go into it."

(On if he views Jonathan Martin as Jake Long’s replacement or if he will replace him through the Draft) –“You basically answered the question for me. There’s a lot of options still open. I’m going to let my coaching staff pretty much decide at the end of this process where Jonathan Martin plays. I think what we do have is a flexible player, a versatile player that can play left, that can play right. I think his development has been good. I think he’s got a long way to go to play right or left to be a really, really good player. That’s what we want him to be. Obviously, we have all of our options open. There’s still free agents on the street. There’s still guys in the trade market that are available and then we have the Draft that’s two weeks away that certainly we could go that route as well. Obviously, I think we’ll probably be active in maybe one of those pieces and maybe more."

(On the offensive line in the Draft and how far the position falls off after the first round in terms of quality)– “I think it depends on how many guys you have in the first round. If you only have two guys in the first round, then the second round is probably pretty strong. I think there’s a good level of guys that have a lot of experience, that can come in right away and play. And then there’s some really good players that may be a little bit further down in the Draft that have the potential to play and be really good in this league, that may not have the level of experience that you’re looking for early. I think that’s the beauty of this Draft is that there’s some at the top, there’s some second and third round that all can, at the end of maybe a year, that you have exactly what you’re looking for."

(On having ammunition to be able to trade up and how high up he could conceivably go) – “I’ve got enough ammunition to get to the first pick if I wanted to, but I don’t see myself doing that personally. I don’t know. It depends on what’s there and we haven’t gone through the process of (figuring that out) and talking to other teams at this point and seeing where we would go up or back. Right now, we’re trying to get the board right and we’re kind of grinding through the process. We’re in our second week of Draft meetings. We’ve got about six more days left to kind of finalize the board and so, at that point, we have about a week-to-10 days to kind of work the kind of the nuances of moving up (and) moving back. So we’ve got a little ways to go."

(On having five selections in the first three rounds and the options that brings)– “Yeah, you have to play out all of the options. That’s what we’re in the business to do is look at your contingencies. I can certainly sit here and say I’m going to have three players out of the five. I can certainly say I’m going to have six players out of the five. I think there are certain levels of the Draft that are really attractive to me. So I think all options are open, absolutely."

(On when he would be willing to deviate from his approach to select a player)– “When a player is still on the board high and you may have passed him by once or twice because maybe you’ve gone to a need, maybe. I’ve been in a couple of drafts where there’s a guy sitting there and it’s not particularly, it’s not a need, it’s not a must, it’s not a want. He’s just not a position that I have in my radar. So sometimes you might not draft a player that you have a high grade on. Then, you go two rounds and that guy’s still staring at you, I’m probably going to go get that guy."

(On how much his philosophy of what kind of player he would select has changed with Coach Philbin coming in)– “One of the things I liked about Joe in the interview process was that he and I see players pretty much the same. Schematically is where maybe it’s changed. Character and makeup, those things, we see very much eye-to-eye on. I’m probably a little bit more of a risk taker than maybe Joe, but we certainly see eye-to-eye. We want guys that are highly competitive. We want guys that have a specific combination of intangible ingredients that form a desired football personality. That’s absolutely what we’re trying to look for. Schematics are obviously different, maybe form a defensive line standpoint, maybe from and offensive line standpoint."

(On how the development of the tight end position has changed)– “You kind of mirror what the college game is doing right now and the college game is spreading out. So you’re getting guys that the college game is playing with. There’s not many traditional ‘Y’ big blocking tight ends that are playing with them. Certain programs have them and certainly you really study those programs that are playing with those kind of tight ends. But the tight end position all together has gotten very athletic. It’s gotten fast. It’s gotten big. It’s gotten athletic. And I think that’s made the NFL trend that way too. I think there’s some very athletic, big, fast tight ends that are making a lot of plays in this league and so I think you’ll see obviously the NFL going that way."

(On drafting core positions high and if tight ends are becoming a core position)– “It depends on your coach sometimes. It hasn’t necessarily been a core position. I think it becomes a core position when you may not have other pieces to your offense. I think you’re trying to control the middle of the field in some cases and if you don’t have kind of the horses on the outside that control the perimeters, then you certainly want to be able to control the middle of the field and, in a lot of cases, you want to be able to do both. But I wouldn’t call it an absolutely core piece."

(On if he’ll be comfortable with not having an offensive tackle by May 1)– “I feel very comfortable with Nate Garner. I feel comfortable with some of the young developmental players. Obviously, I could look at the whole offensive line in particular, we’re going to try to upgrade the offensive line as whole. Where we do it (and) how we do it, right now, we have a really good core of players with Jonathan and Richie (Incognito) and John (Jerry) and obviously (Mike) Pouncey, and I think Nate’s in that core group of guys at this point. Behind them, we have a very young group of guys that don’t have a lot of experience. So we need to add depth there. We need to add some experience. We certainly need to add some talent on the offensive line."

(On if he’s inclined to take more risks in the Draft because he has a lot of selections this year)– “I don’t want to go into it thinking that way. I really don’t. I would really kind of, more or less, to kind of go about it in the way I’ve always gone about it. I think you could think that way, that you could take a risk, but I’m still going to go into it trying to get really good football players that have a high upside that we can develop that are our kind of guys and I think, if you go into that way, then I think you’re going to come out the best way."

(On whether he wants to exit the Draft with quality or quantity) – “It depends. I mean both. You would like to have a bunch of good players. That’s what you would like to come out of it with. It depends on how the board falls. You know if the guys that you have on your board are clipping off at a fairly high rate, then you’d better go up and get what you really like. Again, the Draft falls differently every year. It’s very hard to predict how it’s going to fall. We start trying to predict how things are going to fall right about now, and we’re just now getting through the process of strategizing."

(On how he views his 30 official Draft visits) – “I think everybody does it differently, and I‘m one of those everybody. Again, I don’t have a strict philosophy about how I do it. Sometimes I’ve got a guy that I need a little bit more medical information on. Some of the guys I didn’t get a chance to visit with them at the Combine, or I did visit with them at the Combine and didn’t get the information I wanted. There’s no rhyme or reason. Some guys I have a lot of interest in, and some I guys I have no interest in at all, but there is really no rhyme or reason."

(On why he brought Manti Te’o in for an official visit) – “Well I think Manti is a good football player. We had 15 minutes with him at the combine, and so I think he is a good football player that is going to be drafted, and in that particular case, I wanted to spend some time with him. Kind of get to know a little bit more about the whole process he has been through, how he has handled it, and how he is moving forward with it."

(On whether this draft is more important than past drafts) – “Well I mean we have 11 picks, and that’s why it’s important. A lot of time, a lot of planning is put into this offseason not only just for the draft picks, but to this point to have the cap space and the draft picks in the same year, a lot of thinking and a lot of planning went into this. But the fact that we do have 11 draft picks and five in the top three rounds, that’s important. It doesn’t come around very often that you have that kind of clout in the draft. We need to take advantage of it, so it’s very important."

(On the atmosphere in the war room on draft day) – “Last year was pretty quiet. We didn’t have a lot of action early in the draft, but it can get chaotic. You have guys that have been through it before, and I’ve been in drafts where it is extremely chaotic. I’ve been in drafts with (Dallas Cowboys Owner and General Manager) Jerry, Mr. Jones, in Dallas where he is wheeling and dealing, and it can be very exciting. In our particular case, we’ve had a couple of different scenarios, and it gets really hectic when you have five minutes in-between each round. Sometimes the phone doesn’t ring until you are on the clock and you have to make a decision (snaps fingers) to trade back, or maybe another team is on the clock and you want that pick. So, I’m telling Brian (Gaine) to call and Dawn (Aponte) to call and Chris (Shea) and I’m calling, you know did you make the trade? Did you call the league? Did they get the phone call from the league? A lot of things have to happen. Did you turn the card in? So it can get pretty hectic. It’s fun, it’s an adrenaline rush no doubt about it."

(On whether he expects a similar situation this year where the majority of picks in the top 10 are traded) – “It all falls differently. Do I expect it? I think last year was a little unique, but again, we’re all in a whole different time frame at this point with the CBA and the contracts and all that. I think you can take any player, any position and there is no rhyme or reason why you do it. If there is a need and there is a conviction by the team to take any particular position, then you go up and get it. It’s not the losers curse anymore. I think it makes sense to do those things if you want the player."

(On whether he thinks he needs to address the wide receiver position early in the Draft after how the team addressed it in free agency) – “I like the unit that we have. We have some complementary skill sets that make us a lot better than we were last year. I think there are some good players at that position, but to say that I am going to be active early at that position, I can’t say at this point. I do like where our wide receiver position is obviously. Again, I think the complementary skill set is what we have been able to add to this football team, to what we already had on this football team, are very good. I think it is the strength of our football team."

(On whether he knows who he is going to pick in the first round of the Draft) – “Not exactly. It’s a little bit different this year. There are a lot of different things that I’m playing through my head right now that Joe (Philbin) and I are talking about. There are still a couple positions that we haven’t actually talked about in our meetings yet. I’ve sent Joe off to watch different guys and said, ‘hey let’s get back together.’ So this is the time we bring our coaches back and try to marry what we see as a personnel department to what our coaches see and the schematics of where they are at. I have a pretty good idea of three or four guys that I am looking at, absolutely."

(On what Jonathan Martin needs to do to be the starting left tackle) – “I think the offseason for Jonathan is important. You know just getting stronger and getting his technique, his use of hands, (getting) his punch down properly, the timing of his punch. Skill set is not a problem. This guy’s got great feet and he's big enough. He needs to work on some anchor, but he needs to be more consistent with some of the things he is going to see. You’re going up against probably the best athlete per pound on the football field in the right defensive end or right outside linebacker. So, you’ve got to be on your game when you’re playing left tackle in this league. He just needs to work on his consistency."

(On Brent Grimes’ health and when he expects him to be ready) – “We did our due diligence obviously with a guy coming off an Achilles injury. I personally am qualified as Dr. Ireland at this point. I studied a lot on just the particular injury itself. I certainly like the player. I talked to our doctors, talked to his surgeon or had my people talk to his surgeon, and I think he is in a really good place right now. I don’t want to make any time tables because I don’t know exactly what we’re doing with him when he gets in the building. I know he's doing really well and he's almost to the point, in his mind, where he's ready to participate in the offseason program, but to say when he is going to be 100% or anything like that, I’d have to see him move around a little bit."

(On whether Grimes’ injury impacts what the team’s needs are) – “I feel good about him. I feel very good about him right now."

(On whether he is aware of the fact that a lot of players he has picked in the second and third rounds of past drafts are no longer on the team and whether that affect the way he drafts) – “Well I am aware of it. You guys keep me aware of it quite often. I don’t take any different than the way I’ve always gone into it. I’m going to put the board up the way I put it up. I have different aspects of the draft room itself to try and help improve that process. One is my head coach. Brian Gaine is a little more involved in this process. So, obviously you are trying to upgrade the room and the dynamics of the room. Certainly I haven’t changed too much in regard to picking players. I have been doing it a long time now."

(On how the volatility of the top 10 picks impacts the Dolphins at pick 12) – “I wouldn’t say it’s volatile. I think there are a lot of different scenarios. I think last year, in comparison, you knew where one, two and three were going to go. You obviously had Andrew Luck and you had the Washington Redskins trading up to that pick (number 2 overall) and you knew who they were going to pick, so that’s two off the board right away. I think there is a lot more confidential information right now in the clubs. I don’t think anybody has just come out and said who they’re taking or anything like that. Nobody has shown their hand yet, which is good. That’s the way we all want it to be honest with you."

(On how valuable it is to find a true press corner in the draft and how deep the cornerback class is) – “Well it depends what kind of scheme that you run whether it’s important to get a press corner. We don’t play a ton of press, but we do play a lot of man-to-man. There is a difference. So, is it extremely important that we get a guy who plays 90% press? No it’s not, but it’s important that the guy we draft can play man-to-man. But also, we play some zone and we play some off-man. Off-man is very difficult. There is a different skill set to that, so finding a guy that can have a pretty good skill set that is not strictly one thing or the other is important."

(On whether he wants to continue to address offensive line high in the draft after committing so many high draft picks to the position in the past) – “If I get another (Mike) Pouncey and another Jake Long I would do it every draft. Those kinds of guys are pretty darn good. I wish I had a whole team full of Mike Pouncey’s and Jake Long’s to be honest with you. Those guys are really good players. They are productive; I know what I’m getting every single day with the guys. Particularly, I’m not going to pigeon hole myself just to take an offensive lineman. I think we have a couple other positions that we might go after obviously. I think there is going to be a good player for us. I’m excited about going into this draft."

Apparently the football talk is getting boring here. 13 days until the draft and then the trolls will have some more fodder.

Btw. I'm very proud to be a Florida native.

(On drafting core positions high and if tight ends are becoming a core position)– “It depends on your coach sometimes. It hasn’t necessarily been a core position. I think it becomes a core position when you may not have other pieces to your offense. I think you’re trying to control the middle of the field in some cases and if you don’t have kind of the horses on the outside that control the perimeters, then you certainly want to be able to control the middle of the field and, in a lot of cases, you want to be able to do both. But I wouldn’t call it an absolutely core piece."


If You Have WR's You Don't Need TE's.

The Coaches Don't Feel The need for many TE's.


People From/In Florida Don't Need To Go On A Ignorant Rant. And Then To Talk Bad About The Women In Florida. Florida Has Some Of The Most Beautiful Women In this country.

We Love It Here. People In Florida Are Usually Happy All The Time. No Need To Talk About Another State.

It's Just The Troll. His Constant Negativity Is Disturbing.

He Needs To See An Anger Management Therapist.

Wrong. Get me Eifert...Give our QB another weapon...get a guy who scores TDs...We've had problems scoring Tds for how long now? How many years? Last time i checked, you had to score touchdowns to win a football game...

Montreal , I am with you on Eifert. If we dont trade up for one of the 3 top LT's, which is my hope. I say we draft Eifert at 12. I would still rather have an elite LT though...

Eifert, Desmond Trufant, the guards, the three Ots, pass rusher, Dt, whatever, just get me the best player possible... there's a lot of options.


Some interesting news from SportsBuzz,

“It depends on your coach sometimes. It hasn’t necessarily been a core position."

It Is Not What You Want. It Is What The Coaches Want. And The Coaches Want Fast TE's. This Offense Isn't Predicated On Throwing To The TE. We Throw To The WR In This Offense.

Read that Bobby and to me the two names I enjoyed seeing there the most were Robert Alford and Jamar Taylor.

Seems to me that there are 2 scenarious
First one is stay pat at 12 and select one of the top 7 or 8 players in this draft
This option assumes that one of those 7 will be there at 12
So JI must have a pretty good feeling that one of the 3 he wants which might or might not be one of the top 7 will be there at 12
As a fallback if none of the 3 are still there he can then trade down and pick up an extra draft pick probably on round 2 but not higher than round 3

The second option is to trade up and take that left tackle which will be filling our biggest void plus will be a perennial pro bowl selection if he stays healthy
This will cost us our first pick in the second round in addition to our 12 pick in the first round

So the decision has to be made before the draft starts if we are going for #1 or #2 pick
If we are going to move to 5 or 6 then we can wait till the 4th or 5th pick is made to decide

I just don't see us trading up for the third best tackle probably not worth it
So as we finish our board we must first look at who might be available in the second round that we can fill that left tackle spot with
If we feel comfortable with that second tier tackle we will then probably not move up at all and we will draft a guard or DE in the first round
I say this because the odds of the only top 10 cb in this draft will probably not be there at 12
I seriously doubt we take a wr or lb at 12 since these are not needs as JI told us he wants to draft for needs not BPA
So we can all guess at what might happen or speculate at who we will draft in the first round but only 5 people know for sure and I bet we will be surprised at the decision come draft day

I just hope we get at least 3 starters from this draft and it will be a successful draft
By the way stop talking about states or education levels or crime or women in this blog
We are here to read and comment on the dolphins and the draft not all the other junk
It is so frustrating to see so many dumb posts about other topics please refrain yourself's from talking crap in this blog

Mark in Toronto, yes I found it to be interesting article to. I like SportsBuzz

Oindouche, You are with-out a doubt the biggest waste of a human being.

Was Jeffy asking about hooka moms?

Some interesting trade scenarios. IMO the top one would be the Dallas scenario. The worse would be the Oakland scenario

IRELAND SUCKS & SO DOES ROSS!!! A hand full of players that worked over 5 year span is NOT successfull... FIRE IRELAND!!! BOYCOTT ALL NEW GIRLIE LOGO ITEMS!!!

Can't wait for the season. Renewed my season tickets and will restock my wardrobe with the new gear and Logo. Thank you Mr. Ross and Jeff Ireland for renewing our team and changing that cartoon character logo. I support you 1000%

This just in: if your wardrobe depends on the logo or players of the Dolphins, you are a tool.

And if you get free tickets just dont eat the food and give any more money to this horrible owner.

I cant believe we have to put up with another Ireland draft. Can u say Michael Egnew?

And On The Crime Rate. The North East Has Been Skewing That Number For Years. I Read Somewhere They Don't Post The Real Crime Numbers, Because The Cops Don't Want People To Get Even More Afraid.

It's That Depressive Weather That Causes All Those Sociopath's And Psychopaths To Break.

They Have A Time Of The Year, when The Sun Only Comes Out for about 4 Hours. And Then They Have A Time Of Year When The Night Only Comes Out For About 4 Hours. That Has To Drive People Crazy.

^^^ Great Fact Checking

Troll battle does prove one thing, morons at home in both spots.

Bobby, pay no mind to these guys ...

I liked that article on the draft day moves. Obviously they are unfounded but they do speak to the potential moves that can be made by Miami. If they make the Oakland trade, i will cry. If they make no trade I will be happy. If they make the Dallas or Minnesota type moves that will be great too!! Since there are no real top end offensive skill players in this draft I don't see anyone dying to trade up though...

Mark in Toronto, I don't worry about her. When Armando said she was a "clown" with "issues", I knew I was right about everything I have said about her in the past.
As far as the Bleacher Report, I would also be upset if hat Oakland trade happenned. I would love that Dalkas trade. To only move down 6 spots and get n extra 2, that would be great for us. We can do so much with three 2nd rounders.

That trade with Oakland on Bleach Report would make me sad. Trade down looks like the best scenario, but I doubt anyone wants to trade up.

Should be an interesting draft since the best players available seem to be at positions that aren't deemed core positions (dt, og)

CommonSense | April 12, 2013 at 10:48 AM


Shouldn't U Be Busy Worrying who Your Ex is Sucking Off Right Now.




Her? Clown with issues?? is the troll Terry Glenn?? So that's how he fills up his days now.

I agree about the guys in the 2nd round. There's a lot of them that are not much different than guys in the top 20 of this draft. However, I think there are some elite talents that would be available at 12 - problem is that they are not in glamour positions (guard, dt)

just sayin'... this is the name I post under. I'm not the troll.

Also, why would someone care who there ex is sucking off?
What are the Cowboys looking to trade up for? WR?

Sessler from nfl network is reporting miami will move up in nfl draft in round one at #12 to get a offensive linemen...and will give up a lot to get one......see, ireland worked hard to put miami in great shape and get a lot of good picks in this deep draft...so why wod he go waste picks ?? Ireland actually said he dont think he will move up, maybe move back in draft but not up....i see bow media tries to influence the mind to make their choice...this media guy is making up this lie...

CS, the article said Cowboys want Vaccaro

Ireland is not going to be a dummy and pay to much to move up in round one from 12th pick....no way......move back to get more picks, trade rb daniel thomas and wr bess for more picks.....

Trade up from picks in 7th round and later ok...but dont trade up from round one pick twelve.....

My Bad. Common Sense.

And Just Saying Is Not Exclusive To You. I've Posted Under That Name Many Times. Heck, The Troll Still Tries To Impersonate Me All The Time. I Must Be Doing Something Right. Because I'm The Only One That Gets Imitated In This Blog. And They Just Banned The "Winning" Sign In. All Time Record. Never Had My Name Banned. But Must've Really Got To Him This Morning. Notice He Isn't Even Posting Today.

Agreed. You Shouldn't Care About Previous Relationships. But The Troll Has A Grudge Against Women, Specifically From Florida. Only Guy I Know That Hates Slutville, USA.

The Article Was On Yahoo! Not To Long Ago.

I've been hardly posting as of late. And you still regurgitate the same lies & misinformation.

Sadly for you, not everyone is as dumb as you two goofballs. Get a life moron!

Dolphins wont make no raiders deal.....not moving up....just not worth it this years draft....probably gonna trade back in draft..

My Mock Draft

1st- ND TE Tyler Eifert
2nd- Texas DE Alex Okaor
2nd- NC OT Brennan Williams
3rd- Southern Lousiana CB Robert Alford
3rd- GA S Shawn Williams

The Troll Is Still In Shell Shock.

Anger and Hate Are Weak Emotions. You Are A Weak Person, Who Tries To Cover It Up By Denigrating Others On This Blog.

If Miami trades up, I believe it will be with Cleveland. And, they'll be targeting Johnson (LT) or Milliner (CB). Those are the only players that I see as grading out high enough to move up for at that slot. Then, I expect Ireland will try to trade down at some point in order to regain some of the lost picks. He knows that this is a deep draft with very few players grading out high. I also expect that Miami will bring in a lot of undrafted players into camp. There will be value there as well.

pick the best player available at every pick and it will work its self out

Trading With Cleveland Makes The Most Sense.

We Won't Be Giving Up A lot, and We Can Get The Player We Want.

I Will Only Trade Down For A Future #1 Pick.

Trade With The Cowboys, for Next Years #1 and Change Spots.

Armando you should apply for Jeff's job

Draft a wr playmaker in round one....we are not as good at wr as hyped yet....wallace needs wr patterson or keenan allen or trevon austin to rattle defenses....and we need to trade rb daniel thomas...just to slow....draft a young big faster back...

Sign a free agent tackle until next years draft..sign him to a one year contract.

Then round one draft a wr....austin or patterson...

Two picks in round two draft a corner and defensive end...

Then two picks in round three draft another corner and a young big running back....

Rounds four draft a safety...

Round five draft a defensive tackle or offensive linemem....

Any later rounds add depth....

I do not see the Fins moving up to take a lineman either. The Fins are not impressed with Lane Johnson. There are 3 guys in the second that I would look at. Brennan Willams, Kyle Long (howies kid) and Justin Pugh. I like all 3.

Ireland has said that he likes to draft out of need the BPA there. So again, what is need? The only absolute need we have now is OT as we have only one sure starter there. Relative needs? We could improve on both our starting Gs now who btw are on the last Yr of their contracts. We could improve on CB and S. Passrusher? We have Vernon, Shelby, young Players with upside but I don't see them as 10-15 sacks/yr Players. Ireland might pull the trigger on one of the very good ones but it will be more of a luxury. Same with TE as we have young Egnew and Clay. So, Ireland says he has 3-4 Players in mind for the #12 pick. So, OT, G, CB, S are it.

I HATE working nights(LOL). I miss out on all the Day-Timers!!!!

Good Morning Vietnam!!!!

Gotta say that Bark is correct,When is posting considered a job?

YG4L, You here pretty much 24/7, How do you do it?
Are yu a millionare hermit or just unemployed?



I'd take Armando over Jeff at GM anyday.

(On how valuable it is to find a true press corner in the draft and how deep the cornerback class is) – “Well it depends what kind of scheme that you run whether it’s important to get a press corner. We don’t play a ton of press, but we do play a lot of man-to-man."

Huh? When did this happen?

Ireland upgrading Oline,

Has said he wants to upgrade the oline throughout this draft but he doesn't say when. This also could be the cat and mouse of draft strategy and someone leap frogs or trades up for Lane Johnson when Miami never had them in mind in the first place.

If Miami does go Oline in round 1, I want them to go Chance Warmack. He's the safest pick in the draft and the rule is Guards shouldn't go so early but the same was said for Centers and Miami drafted Pouncey and he is a very good player and was the best olinemen Miami had last year.

ALoco, you are just a sad little girl whining throughout life. Go supersize my fries fry cook.

Andy, Long was the best rated OL last year.....just so you know.




Long was the best rated? What site did you get that from? Profootball focus which is becoming a highly respectable site breaks down all the plays of every individual player and Long was one of the worst LT's in football last year. He was like middle pack in the pass blocking and one of the worst run blockers.

Pouncey was the best according to them and not only that just from what I saw it was easy it was Pouncey. After Pouncey probably Incognito. Long good riddance! He's done as a player IMO. He can be a good player most weeks but no longer elite or even very good.





Bleacher report rates Pouncey at #7 and Long at #4

Pouncey's brother is far better

Andy NJ, isn't it funny how people make up things and try to pass them off as true?? No one could actually be that dumb in his life. No one, no where had Jake Long rated as the #1 LT in the League. No one, no where. You are right, he was rated middle of the pack.

The troll gets his ass handed to him on a daily basis lol.

Check out this masterpiece from the Gaytard:

After a hard night of posting (From 11:30 Till 7:25am) He needs to get his kids to school....LMAO, Getting your kids to school??; What time does this school start 9AM??
Most schools start at 8AM or earlery, But hey,In your world maybe it starts at 10 or 11am,

Posted by: Bark Odin,Bark. | April 11, 2013 at 07:04 PM

Well Monkey Boy, if you take the Cork Out of your Mouth for a sec, I'll hip you too this thing we call: MATH-ROTFLMAO!

My Kids jump on the bus at 7:30 and school starts at 8:00. 7:30 am to 8:00am........Hmmmmmm, yeah, that gives them about a HALF HOUR to get to school ;)

Where's the problem with that? What's this 9, 10 and 11:00 Oclock crap you're talking about-LOL?

(My guess is that he was ZINGING from a blast off the ole Meth Pipe when he posted that one.) This idiot can't even count to.........wait......wait for it.........he can't even count to: A HALF HOUR!!!!

Bhwaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

PS: After giving it a little more thought Gaytard, I think you should just stay in the "Closet". Much like you are to your own family, I'm SURE you'd just be an embarrassment to the Gay Community as well.

(Fvcking Idiot can't even count and he proved it RIGHT HERE in front of GOD and EVERYONE! ROTFLMFAO-Dooh!)
