Thanks for the article! Very nice! He met with the Dolphins at the Senior bowl and models himself after Jason Taylor!

if he didnt tlak to uor guys then i guess we konw how to figure out the players he wants. Lawson can be our guy and ild love that! yowzers! what a replacement for JT when he retires! see, this way when he retires we have another oen to take his place and not wait until he rretires then 5 yrs later say ooo snapp we dont have a playmakers on D lets find one like we did iwht marino. hopefully we can find a ZT next.

Yup, I think Manny just being Manny, just vaulted himself into the top 12.

As much as Saban is into the character of his players, I can guarantee he wouldn't draft someone without talking to them.

I like this kid a lot, Im hoping that the phins spend the 1st on a defensive player my wishlist (in the 1st whoever is available in order):

Huff s/cb
M Lawson lb/de
J Williams cb
B Bunkley dt
C Greenway lb

He didn't meet with them at the Combine but he did meet with them at the Senior Bowl.

why did they specifically ask if he spoke to the Dolphins?

because we need an OLB and he is a Clone of Jason Taylor.

He fits us perfectly too


I have been high on this guy for months now to miami. I hope it happens


That is a great interview thank you for the information

C Greenway lb........gone

Bunkley looked impressive at combine, he may knock Williams back.

Am I correct in thinking that Nick never met with or talked to Ronnie last year?

He doesn't let it be known who he is getting till he gets them.the dolphins DID talk to lawson at the combine for a lttle bit just like they did other players, i'll tell you guys 1 thingt this kid manny lawson is going to be a jason taylor/shawn merriman type of player,you can beat his physical qualities plus he has been over shadowed by mario williams. He could easily take over seau's position and keep sacking the QB on the otherside of jt. MANNY LAWSON WITH THE NO.1 PICK AT #16.:D :D :sidelol: lawson,thomas,crowder,pope r the 4lb's to start in 2006

Our 4 LBs include JT, plus no matter how much I like Pope he wont start any time soon.

Manny Lawson is that type of player that can improve a defense. I hope he falls to #16.

Ive been down with Lawson for a while. Lets hope the fins can snab him in the 1st and get OL or a DB in the 2nd.

I like Lawson, but I don't know if I like him at 16, unless we're moving him to LB, or Carter/Roth is moving to DT, IMO we should draft someone else.

This is what I said a few weeks ago when people started putting up all the people we talked to. Manny Lawson could be the guy.

I also said this but CK said we did talk to him somewhere.
