    SCall13 ThePhins QB

    Not sure if anything like this has been posted. Haven't been on as much as I would like lately. My picks would be Noel Devine and Pat Devlin. Noel Devine is a smallish guy, and certainly not an every down player, but he would be a burner on returns, is extremely elusive and can be a weapon for our offense. This guy is a smaller version of Barry Sanders. Without a doubt, he has the ability to make some huge plays. Give him 8 to 12 touches a game and I guarantee we'll see some results. He's just too talented to pass up. He's a Florida guy, so we should have at least a slight advantage over other teams when it come to bringing him home. He's also shown his character issues are likely a thing of the past.

    Pat Devlin: Everyone wanted us to take a QB. Well, this guy was very good at Delaware. His completion percentage was well above 65% in his senior year and he has pretty good arm strength. Although I think Henne will be our starter, Devlin would be worth bringing in as a developmental guy who has some great tools, but will take a bit to adjust to the NFL.

    That's two guys I seriously hope Miami is going to make a strong push for. One (Devlin) is a developmental guy who I was surprised wasn't drafted. And the other (Devine - who I am also surprised wasn't drafted) is a guy who can be very very explosive for us on STs and on some occasional offensive plays.

    What I've heard:

    -Devlin's arm strength is in question
    -Devine has off the field stuff

    Would be worth a look he could be a return guy but a extra RB never hurt.

    I would like to see them pick up Mark Herzlich. Might be a steal left over there.

    How about Will Hill, Safety from Florida. I remember reading somewhere that he had 1st-2nd round talent but major discipline/off field issues (his blog was full of win if you've seen it). If he gets his stuff together maybe could help on ST which we could still use.

    I agree Mark Herzlich would be worth a look too.

    I'd like one of the UM backs that went undrafted, Cooper, Berry, Evans, Tuia we need a practice squad type of back who can give solid competition in TC imo.

    Safety doesn't seem a big need and Wilson may be tried there first as well, but amongst UDFAs, Jeron Johnson, SS, Boise St, seems like as much a talent as anyone.
