    I dunno what this http://walterfootball.com/draft2010.php guy has against the Fins, but I would cry my eyes out if anything resembling this B.S. went down on draft day.

    1. Jason Pierre Paul OLB

    Still available: E. Thomas, Dez Bryant, Rolando McClain, Eversen Griffin, CJ Spiller, Mike Iupati, Brandon Graham

    2. Brandon Lafell WR

    Still available: Demariyus Thomas, Jason Worilds, Cam Thomas, Daryl Washington, Chris Cook, Chad Jones, Reshad Jones, Morgan Burnett

    3. Torrell Troup NT

    Still available: Morgan Burnett, Koa Misi, Jimmy Graham, AJ Edds, Major Wright, Perrish Cox

    4. A.J. Jefferson CB (w/ Sean Smith moving to FS :pity:)

    Still available: Thaddeus Gibson, Brandon Spikes, Eric Norwood, Darrel Stuckey, Jeff Owens, Ed Dickson, Cameron Sheffield

    In the fourth round, rolle is still available too, why would we take another CB?

    Yep, that's pretty damn bad.
    Would like to get Troup, but that's about 2 rounds too early (Yes I know we don't have a 5th).

    If we came away with an OLB, WR, and NT with our first 3 picks I'd be a happy camper. All of those guys have the potential to be good-to-great players. I understand being concerned because they have high bust potential but still, if this went down in April I don't think I'd call it the worst mock ever.

    Rolle is a SS ... we played last year with 2 SS and it didn't turn out so well.

    Sure, I would be okay with olb and wr in first 3 rounds, just not these olb or wr.

    Not the worst ever. Just pick any Wanny draft and those were the worst ever.

    I agree on Rolle, but Yeremiah is 32 yrs old and hes our only SS, so Rolle, or Major Wright, Chad Jones etc might be a good idea in the later rounds. They can play ST for a year or two and then be ready down the road.

    I like the first 3 rounds. Its not like they have us taking a NT with the #1 pick like 50% of the mocks out there!

    I would not be shocked if we passed on Dez Bryant and took JPP.

    to me if Sapp is there in the 2nd get him...after Thomas in the 1st...or Graham...the Dolphins have been on a lets select at least one wideout a draft, hoping he pans out kick, for a couple of years now...IDK...go get a stud like Marshall to address it, or even get Dez, picking a WR after round 3 is pointless to me....although I do like this kid Williams...

    I dont know why this Mock is so bad. JPP could be amazing but was only a 1 yr wonder and does have a high bust rate. Only really bad thing I saw was passing on Burnett in rd 3

    Really like Walter but I personally don't think the 2nd and 3rd rounds pan out very well for the Fins.
    The more I look at it, the more I see the Dolphins taking JPP with the #12 pick. I personally am very skeptical seeing that he has only played football since his Junior year in high school. He can certainly be a bust, but then again he could be Ware.

    Read the rest of the mock, Walter tends to be a pretty darn good analyst. He can be stubborn about certain things, but all draftnicks are.

    as far as JPP goes, he is fast, tall and meets the prototype requirement ... but is reported to be lazy -- so I wouldn't pick him myself ... but agree on OLB.

    LaFell will have a few supporters here -- but unless we go WR in rd 1 .... i don't want to see it until rd 4+ ... prefer S here ....

    Troup meets a need -- but i would much rather have Joseph in rd 4

    Jefferson at CB is not a need, and we have been looking at Cook and Ansa ... so i would go with either of those, if at all.

    Jason Pierre = Vernon Gholston, or so I've heard. Honestly don't know too much about him.

    I moved Sean Smith to FS in Madden; worked... his ratings went up and he picks everything...

    Yeah this isnt madden this is real football and Sean Smith is a horrible tackler and if people were wining about Gibril wilson missing tackles Smith would be about 20 more i think if he is a starting FS he will end up with 20+ missed tackles easy. I would rather have Wilson at FS rather then Smith

    In my madden universe Sean Smith drops over half of the balls that are right in his hand.

    I also drafted a 6'9" receiver in the 2nd round. Terrance Trunk is awesome!

    Sean Smith is not quick enough to be a free safety.

    I like Troup a lot too. I've watched him the last 3 years here at UCF and he is a big part of why our defense was so good. He constantly took on 2 to 3 blockers in the center and still did well. He would fit well as a nose in the 3-4. That being said he is the type of player that goes before the "experts" project. I see him being drafted in the mid to late 3rd, but worse comes to worse in the 4th round.

    Maybe Im crazy then, because I dont like any of those picks, and I hate JPP @ 12. I mean, have you watched the guy play? Great athlete, bad football player. [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tP0rhntrT7I"]YouTube- DE Jason Pierre-Paul Highlights/Lowlights 2009 USF[/ame]. Now this guy, can actually play ball. IMO, theres no comparison. [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IfplrUsJgs"]YouTube- Universal Draft Presents DE Everson Griffen of USC[/ame]. IMO Hughes, and Graham are better prospects Thomas, Bryant, Spiller, etc are better players. C'mon man.

    Lafell is a poor route runner with poor hands and suffers from untimely lapses in concentration. One of the safeties would bting better value at that point, so would Worilds.

    Dont know much about Troup. But the fact this guy even mentions Sean Smith as a FS candidate tells me he is WAY out in left field. Sean is the only member of the secondary who CANT play FS IMO. I like Walt, but he's off here. And the "Parcells takes LBs" rationale is so intellectually lazy it makes me wanna have a drink. In fact, I'll be back later...

    And the bold part is why I keep constantly comparing him to Vernon Ghoulston.


    I'm still waiting for somebody to explain to me how a backflip is going to help him play football?

    I like the 1st two players, just not as much as plenty of people still on the board.

    Overall (with who is on the board at each pick), I'd be hella disappointed with that draft.

    I would much rather have WR, A. Benn in the 2nd over LaFell any day, but that's jmo.

    We really have only 2 safeties plus whatever Chris Clemons is. :wink2: So we could really be looking to draft 2. If it were up to me, Earl in the first and someone like Darrell Stuckey in the 3rd or 4th who can play either FS or SS and be a fine special teamer as well. This is a deep safety draft IMO.

    the draft is deep at SOLB, not so sure it's as deep at S ... especially FS ....

    I actually had the chance to speak with Walter a couple of times online. I told him I believed there is no way Parcells and Ireland take a small school 1 year wonder like JPP when there are other 4 year options available like Brandon Graham. He disagrees. He thinks Parcells is too much a prototypical size guy and he ignores the fact that Parcells likes 3 and 4 year starters.

    That would be a GREAT draft IMO. We'd still need a SOLB, or else we'd have to go w/ Moses. Maybe we trade Ginn or Smiley for a 3rd rounder and grab a SOLB that way. But overall, it'd be hard to complain about a draft like that. :knucks:
