    Default Elliot Harrison Draft Do-Over

    heres a 2007 draft do-over that I thought was pretty cool... lets hope we dont have another draft like this ever again, ridiculous

    http://www.nfl.com/draft/story/09000...content_stream

    Ginn had two great kick returns versus the Jets in 2009 -- and that's about it. John Beck, the club's second-round pick, did nothing in a Miami uniform, which is why the team flirted with both
    Peyton Manning
    and
    Matt Flynn
    this offseason. Other than defensive tackle
    Paul Soliai
    and punter
    Brandon Fields
    , every other player taken in that draft is no longer a Miami Dolphin: Ginn, Beck,
    Samson Satele
    ,
    Lorenzo Booker
    , Reagan Mauia, Drew Mormino,
    Kelvin Smith
    , and Abraham Wright.

    The Quinn lovers realize that the guy we wanted is crap.
    The Ginn lovers still think there is a chance for Ginn to be somewhat bad, instead of complete crap.

    After all Ireland had complete control wasn't he the Florida dictator at the time.

    I do thank Ginn for making those Jet games bearable. To bad he couldn't catch unless we were playing the Jets.
    That's why they play the games!

    I still remember the stupid press conference Cam Cameron had to announce Ginn and his whole family being drafted. If I remember right he mainly talked about Ginn being a good return man and developing into a good WR. I remember the audience loudly booing Cameron and the Ginn pick.


    Cam Cameron and Randy Mueller take responsibility for the Ted Ginn pick.

    Nobody is pretending Ginn was a good pick, but picking Quinn would've been much worse.

    And I remember almost everyone getting a hard on for Quinn, and then Quinn nation hated Ginn automatically because of it. He contributed to the Dolphins a helluva lot more than Jason Allen did and they were 7 picks from eachother.

    Ginn deserved the hate no question, but Jason Allen deserved a lot more and the biggest reason people loved trashing Ginn more than Allen? It stemmed from the initial reaction of passing on their beloved Quinn. The most accurate thing anyone couldve said at the time was....they all suck.

    Interesting, but I can promise you the Lions would not take Peterson over Revis or Willis.

    I think it's kind of sad what you're trying to do here.

    quinn or ginn, either way it wouldn't have mattered...i'd have rather taken the shot on a qb over a wr, but in the end both failed so who cares?..that's like picking the skinniest girl in the fat girl competition

    I don't see how that draft is worse than Chicago's.
    Ted Ginn - we got a decent KR/PR but that;s something you invest a 6th round pick in.
    John Beck is a backup QB. Not a total whiff
    Samson Satele is still starting in the league
    Lorenzo Booker is back in the league ... as another freaking KR/PR guy
    Paul Soliali is a very good DT
    Reagen Maui'a basically kicked around the league as a backup/practice squad guy for a few years, which for a 6th rounder is about par for the course
    Drew Mormino - got cut, not surprising for a 6th rounder
    Kelvin Smith - bounced around a few practice squads, again which is what happens to most 7th rounders
    Brandon Fields - we picked up an extremely good punter.

    I've seen worse drafts, like the '07 Bears or the '06 Dolphins.

    If one of the top 4 picks had been a star we'd be talking about how good this draft was.
    In some ways if you take away hindsight I still like the Ted Ginn pick, the man has speed that is otherworldly. He just didn't have the courage to take the hits that you need to make the big plays in the NFL on a consistent basis, which isn't something you can really tell from college games because his athletic advantage was big enough in college that he could make plays without getting hit.

    Your...common...sense...is...making...my...head... hurt!

    Somewhere along the line someone got into Ginn's head about taking hits. I mean, I can't blame a guy for wanting to protect himself, but he turned into a raging coward. It's one thing to flinch or aligator arm it when you're 180 lbs coming across the middle, but when you refuse to even get tackled and run out of bounds instead...well, you shouldn't be playing in the NFL.

    Ginn helped us beat the Jets twice, that alone was worth it.

    i wanted patrick willis from ole miss. I didn't mind the ginn pick only because it meant we weren't gonna waste 3 years on quinn but the ginn pick made me realize cam cameron wouldn't be around much longer. I think the only WR taken in the top ten under 6 foot? holy **** what an idiot cameron was. This is why I still have faith that flacco can be a good qb if cameron leaves sooner rather than later.


    lets all agree on something, ginn was worth the pick just to embarass the jets.
