I, with most people here, hope the dolphins beat the pats, but if we win and after the chargers won where does that put us. I am guessing at the 16th or 17th pick

I heard from a good source that the outcome of today's game means nothing in terms of our draft position; it's a couple other teams that need to get their loser butts in gear and win today. Whatever way it goes down, we will pick between 15-18.

Since I doubt Minnesota will beat the bears and Atlanta lost to Carolina....

Looks like Miami will pick 17th in the draft

Atlanta and Minnesota were the only two teams at 8-7 going into this week along with Miami.

What if Minnesota gets rid of Culpepper? They could decide to go with Brad Johnson next year and draft a rookie to groom behind him for a season or two.

I want Miami to go defense with their top pick. There are some very very good athletes up there on defense in the first round. I would LOVE for Miami to go with Manny Lawson with the first round pick. He is a Jason Taylor CLONE. An absolute freak.

He's not very highly regarded right now, but after workouts, he might jump up the charts like Demarcus Ware did last year

Our schedule strength was way below the other 8 and 9 win teams going into today's game, so we should pick ahead of all the other teams we're tied with.

Basically as of right now, we're picking 16th if the Vikings win, 17th if they lose.

The 1st round gets to me sometimes, I'm good with rounds 2-7. The thing that really gets me is holding your breath for so long, hoping that another team doesn't steal the player you want.

With Miami win today, and ATL loss we moved down to 16th. Right now Minn is beating the Bears which will keep us at 16, however, if the Bears come back and win, then we fall to 17th, but no farther.

I am pretty sure Quinn is going to play another year at Notre Dame and I would say Young will probably be back at Texas, especially if USC beats them.

you say that like it is a bad thing. a lot of people here and a lot of pro scouts as well are not sold on leinerts arm for the pros. i could care less about the record of USC when he started so if anyone wants to post that irrelevant stat, then look up the oklahoma QBs that were winning 30+ games with 2 losses and see how they did in the pros. the stat that sticks out about leinert is 27 TD's this year and only 1 (yes 1) was longer than 29 yards. miami needs a QB with a strong arm to stretch the field

arm strength is overrated, as long as he doesn't throw lame ducks.

Anyways, he's the perfect fit for the Saints. The Saints need a QB that won't make stupid plays/throws, and Leinhart does not do that.

and so what if only one TD was over 29 yards? doesn't mean he has a weak arm. Just cause you throw a TD for over 30 yards it doesn't mean you have a strong arm (yards after catch)

01-01-2006, 10:54 PM
top 5...I just saw that.

I think it goes like this:

Texans
Saints
49ers
Jets
and I forget the last one

I just found it on GBNReport.com

1. Texans (Bush)
2. New Orleans
3. Tennessee
4. NY Jets
5. Green Bay
6. San Francisco
7. Oakland

Basically what you have is an obvious situation where Tennessee is going to give up a premium to either New Orleans or Houston to draft Matt Leinart. They are too close to Leinart to lose out on him by one pick. They know damn well that Leinart knows Chow's offense like the back of his own hand already and would be an immediate day 1 starter in that offense. All I can say is I am glad Leinart will not go to the Jets.

I guess the real question will be how bad will New Orleans fall in love with Matt Leinart...and how commited is New Orleans to Deuce McAlister. Since everyone knows that Houston will take Bush (or trade down with a team that really really really wants Bush) then New Orleans can force the Texans out of trading with Tennessee merely by making a credible threat that yes if Bush falls to #2 and Leinart is gone, they WILL take Bush. Then Houston will be stuck at #3 with no Bush and no Leinart and they'd be screwed.

Overall I see New Orleans managing the infamous one-spot trade with Tennessee to pick up some extra draft considerations. They'll pretty much have Tennessee's nuts in a vice grip. Of course the REAL x factor would be if Leinart publicly says he will not play for New Orleans...which would be kind of bad for PR but would be the right move in the long run for Leinart because that franchise has bad ownership and is going nowhere...heck Leinart wouldn't even know where he'd be playing over the next three years.

The only monkey wrench in that certainty would be if Young declares and New Orleans shows they've got a total banana in their pocket for him. If that were the case then Tennessee would just stay put.

ChambersWI
01-01-2006, 11:00 PM
Then Houston will be stuck at #3 with no Bush and no Leinart and they'd be screwed.

not true. If both are gone they'll either take D'Bricksaw Ferguson to improve their horrible offensive line, or take AJ Hawk to give their defense a playmaking linebacker.

Carr still put up decent numbers even though he got sacked so much, but the offensive line was worse than ours from last year, and their defense only had 2 count them 2 ints.

IMO Houston doesn't want either Bush or Leinhart (but would be happy to take Bush), and they want to get a premier LT in the draft or a playmaker in their D (to go along with Robinson).

It really comes down to how much are the Titans willing to give up for Leinhart? I'm sure the Saint's would gladly take next year's first and go after Quinn (or Young).

granted, but with the offensive numbers and average of 50 points a game, you would think that more than 1 TD pass in 27 would be a little bit longer than 29 yards and that includes yards after catch. I have never been a big leinert fan and i am not sold on young either, i think they both have a bigger chance of failure than success and i wouldn't pick either at the top of the order.

don't think I am a Leinhart supporter. I like him, but I don't treat him like the greatest thing since sliced bread (I am not a fan of Young though)

Leinhart will either be a Saint or a Titan. He knows Chow's offense like the back of his hand (he's played in it for 5 years), and the Saint's an accurate QB.

On a side note, get used to hearing Cutler to Chambers...TOCHDOWN!!!

There are fifteen teams with records worse than ours. And two other teams, the vikings and chargers, at 9-7. and possibly the cowboys, but i think that they will win tonight.

i went ahead and did the math...
dolphins opponents won 117 games of 236-.496 opp win percentage.
vikings opponents have .517 win percentage.
chargers opponents have .606 win percentage.
and i didnt bother to figure dallas bc they are going to win/ its going to be high.

so there you have it.

16 miami
17 minnesota
18 san diego

maybe nick saban will trick minnesota into moving up one lousy spot. spielman was awful...

and in front of us is

15 atlanta

and three teams are at 6-10

im just guessing but i think it would be

12 cleveland
13 baltimore
14 philadelphia

so, there you go.

In college it might you might have something but in the pros the majority of bombs are caught within 25 yds. It's all about the YAC.

Good thing is that NO and the Titans will need a QB, so if the Jets want a QB they have to trade up. I was afraid that they will simply be awarded a QB because the teams before them might not need one (as the 49ers e.g.)

But for the FIns I think will be virtually impossible to grab Leinart, as trading up from 16th to one of the top places will simpyl cost too much and they have too many holes otherwise.
Does anybody know if there are any good CBs this year, in Mel Kipers list (for what it is worth) there was only 1 CB in the top 20 or 25, that does not look too promising. Would hate if the Fins would have to overspend just because the position is thin....

I think we're 19th because 15 teams had 8 wins or less. Then their where 4 teams at 9-7. San Diego, Minnesota, Dallas, Miami. The tiebreaker in the draft is strength of schedule. We had the easiest schuedule.
Minny- .484
Dallas- .523
San Diego- .559
Miami- .457
Wouldn't the harder strength of schedule get a higher pick? Correct me if I'm wrong.

We lost the same number of games to easier teams, so we were "worse" than the other teams, meaning we pick first.

No, because harder strength losses meant you were a better team than the teams who lost to a weaker schedule, and since the draft is designed to help weaker teams Miami would get a higher pick because of all the tied teams they were technically the worst. Understand?

Well, here's the offical top 20 according to Yahoo Sports:

1 Houston 2-14 0
2 New Orleans 3-13
3 Tennessee 4-12
4 N.Y. Jets 4 12
5 Green Bay 4 12
6 San Francisco 4 12
7 Oakland 4 12
8 Buffalo 5 11
9 Detroit 5 11
10 Arizona 5 11
11 St. Louis 5 10
12 Cleveland 6 10
13 Baltimore 6 10
14 Philadelphia 6 10
15 Atlanta 8 8
16 Miami 9 7
17 Minnesota 9 7
18 San Diego 9 7
19 Dallas 9 6
20 Kansas City 10 6

For 9 - 7, I am more than happy with the 16 pick. And also happy that the Jets sit at #4 far from Reggie Bush. :)

Jets may try to move up. They could package Chad, Jay, and their next 3 years first round picks (estimated as in the top5 overall the next few years) and get Leinart. Leinart will have to flip a coin to decide whether to play for the Jets or live in the Superdome.

strength of schedule is the first-tiebreaker for draft order. Team with the easier schedule drafts first.

the harder schedule means you played harder teams eand did just as good as the team with the easier schedule.

so like, if a team goes 4-12 and beats 4 really good teams, then they are better then the 4-12 team that beat 4 really bad teams. so they get the better pick, because they suck more.

I think there is a real chance Cutler could be there for us if we want him. Unless he goes top 10 the only team between the 10 spot and us who might want him would be the Ravens. I think I heard that Brian Billick was staying for at least one more year so they may well stick with Boller.

I hope Cutler is available for us as well but there are a lot of teams needing QB's...I am wondering what is going to happen with Favre, Culpepper, Brooks, Carr, Bollinger/Pennington, and McNair.......if we can't get Cutler I would like for us to get Culpepper (if he is completely healthy). If not we may have to ride the Gus Bus another year and draft a QB in 2007. :rolleyes:

01-02-2006, 04:06 PM
how come the Vikings and Chargers went lower than us, I mean we beat the Chargers you'd think they'd be higher, I guess its some tie breaking system tha I don't understand, maybe someone who know could explain it to me.

according to foxsports.com, the Dolphins will be picking 16th. They had the same record as the Cowboys, Vikings, and Chargers. However, they won the tie breakers with those four teams.

Might be able to get Cutler by tradeing up a few spots.

All depends.

I know if we'd've lost more games, we've gotten a better pick, but, Screw that.

I've got all the confidence in thsi staff to make good picks.

We have one of the most talented staffs in the NFL AFAIK.

This is a good spot to get a quality player at a far lower salary cost than a top 5 pick.

Anyone else excited?

At 16 there're a lot of posible player we could get.I saw 3 mocks tonite that had us passing on Cutler and one that had us taking him.2 of them had us taking a LT.I think is gonna be very hard to predict this year at that spot...Huff,Greenway,Cutler(are all posible if they're still on the board)Bing is also posible tho I doubt it.The curve ball could be us going for a LT and there should be about 3 or 4 to pick from....and if Ryan is there from bama is also posible....Carpenter and Lawson could take a look at them too.

Who is better: Huff, Landry, or Bing? We do need secondary help, but safeties tend to plumment in the draft (see Shazor) does anyone think one of these three would be a good 1st round pick.

And if so, what should be picked up in the 2nd?

FinNasty

LaRoy Landry
Greenway

Cutler

Atleast 1 should be available which will make me very happy!

IMO, Landry is the best... but peoples opinions will differ...

Landry is great in coverage. A true ballhawk. he is also a very sure tackler... a FS type... (and the key to him, is that he already knows Saban's system)

Bing is a big hitter. A guy that you would put in the box... a SS type. However, he has some durability issues...

Huff is also a great prospect... check him out during the Rose bowl because he will definatly be tested vs. USC...

Ok guys, I was looking at the previous miami dolphins 1st rd draft picks and wondered a few things. Daryl gardner was the Ngata of this year and i like how we picked him up, tim bowens, richment webb, and O.J. Mcduf. but the rest were all busts or crap. Yatil green, john avery, fletcher, vernon carey, milner, coleman, hill, etc etc. I dont seem to understand why we let vincet go when he is such a great player right now. i didnt even konw we drafted him.


Btw, how come some years we had piakcs in the high 27, 28's etc etc?
And who did we trade our 99 00 picks for? i believe the 02 03 went to RW??
I also noticed that we drafted an off player in rd 3 for the last 234324 yrs and they seem to have all been busts adn they are mainly off line players. I believe Def. playesr in those late rounders have abetter chhance of being better players rather then off players in becoming good players.
We have many players that were not succesful or good players and become busts. Seems like miami has a GOOD chance on picking HORRIBLE players except for this new era in miami and seems like this 05 draft was the bet miami draft or could end up being teh best ever draft. cant wait for next year adn see how it turns out. many of our off linemen picks have been busts in previous years. in 98 99 miami drafted about 4353 RB's and NEITHER were successful. and in 99 we took 3, 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! konrad fb, J.J. rb, and c Collins RB. wtf was wrong with miami? i think if it wansn't for some lucky as* players that became successful such as zach and JT surtain madison tim etc we shoudl have been the bengels or browns for the last decade. this was a sad read on our drafts picks. how and to who did we lose so many 2nd rd 1st rd and 3rd picks for/to?

And if so, what should be picked up in the 2nd?

IMO, Michael Huff (a senior at Texas) is the best pure safety who could play either safety or cornerback (he is, IMO, a player who could make an immediate impact).

IMO, the talent at safety in this draft are Michael Huff and LaRon Landry with a drop-off in value after these two. (If LaRon Landry skips his Senior year (edited).)

It will be interesting to see who plays in the Senior Bowl ... and how well all the draft candidates perform at the Combine and Pro-Day workouts.

In the 2nd round, I'd favor the team drafting the best available QB.
