    Default Brock Osweiler lands in Miami for Dolphins pre-draft visit

    http://www.nfl.com/draft/story/09000...headline_stack
    Brock Osweiler said he landed in Miami on Monday for a visit with the Dolphins, three days after the 6-foot-7 Arizona State quarterback reportedly worked out for the Denver Broncos.
    Not endorsing just didn't see this posted.
    This guy just needs some platform shoes to see over the linemen.
    the quarterback's workout vaulted him into first-round consideration.
    That's why they play the games!

    The dude has no business going in the 1st round...even in the second for that matter.

    I have to believe he is being brought in incase we haven't drafted a QB and he's there in the 3rd.

    He could turn out to be T. J. Yates or John Skelton. Both were big guys coming out of college. Yates did have 4 years starting experience though, and so did Skelton.

    no it didn't. No workout "vaults" anyone into the first round. It might make you go back to his tape to dig deeper (ala Josh Robinson), but a workout doesn't change how a guy plays on tape.


    "first round consideration" for Osweiler is like saying his workout is more significant than his actual game play.

    I am okay with the Dolphins kicking the tires on all of the QB prospects, at least they recognize the need. I just hope they make the right choice.

    Ireland invested a lot of time in 7th rounder, Jimmy Wilson, so us having Osweiler in for a visit means little about where we'd consider drafting him, if we're even considering it.
    This is likely nothing more than due diligence in case we lose out on our top targets and Brock is there at one of our late picks and we feel like pulling the trigger.

    Can't just focus on one or two guys at the position. Need some worse case scenarios. Dolphins have spent significant time with Tannehill, Weeden, Cousins, Foles, Lindley and Osweiler.

    Jeff Ireland="Size is dreamy"

    Largest Qb prospect, is anyone really surprised we'd bring him in for a visit?

    Unless Philbin sees Ben R or Josh Freeman in him, he is a late 2nd rd pick imo.

    Osweiler isnt a bad investment in the 3rd thru 5th rd. 2nd too high. Would take Wilson over Osweiler or Foles IMO

    Players don't have to be in the mix at #8 for us to have them in for a visit, he's not a bad option later in the draft. Getting him with one of the 3rd rounders isn't a bad consolation prize IMHO.

    I agree with taking him in the third. He needs time to develop IMO. Let him get some practice time with a real coaching staff and learn his trade.

    Nothing wrong with looking at all possible QB's, or any other positions we need for that matter. Looking isn't buying, but I'm glad they're at least looking at everyone.

    I wouldnt mind a strategy of nabbing the best player available, which would mean passing on tanny and then going all out for matt barkley.

    I don't want another project qb taken late. too many holes to fill.

    Although I don't agree with this, it won't happen. Ireland loses his job if that becomes reality. We are taking a QB somewhere in this draft.

    I don't mind them looking at all the QB options. In fact, I believe they should. But if we miss out on Tannehill or Weeden and settle for another long shot project while hoping that next year we can trade up for Barkley then the results will almost assuredly be the same as they have been since Marino.

    Yes but you know how the media likes to throw in the little extras to get attention.
    That's why they play the games!

    Just say no. Don't ever see him as a starting caliber NFL QB.
