I'm trying to put together an "informed" mock, and I wanted to see who you think the Dolphins will take in the first (no trades). I don't know if you're still hoping for / wanting Arrington, but I've got him 75/25 Giants/Jags. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you'd prefer Hodge to start, so would Greenway be the pick if he's there at 16? What about Jimmy Williams if he's there? He's sliding just as fast as Hali, but I'm not sure it's warranted. The guy's an ***, but he can play.

From those two, which would you prefer?

Jimmy Williams, fast, tall, can play CB or Safety...we need him more than a receiver.

at the combine, williams insisted that he is a safety in the nfl...and that is also why you may have noticed his value dropping lately.

I dont really think either. If we need a DB, I like Allen or Simpson to play safety. If we need a LB, Id rather Lawson or Carpenter

id prefer greenway. big linebacker that can run and cover. there are way to many questions about williams. reports are that he interviewed very poorly. he basically told coaches he is a cornerback and he isnt moving to safety.

Greenway.
Has more ability to cover backs AND TEs than any other OLB in the draft.
IMO

Jimmy Williams seems to fit the bill when it comes to Saban types DBs, Tall ,fast and physical.

I would not take Greenway at number 16. This draft has numerous options at OLB with lots of talent anywhere in first 3 rounds.

Between the two I would take Williams. I would take Tye Hill over Williams.

We would be fortunate to be faced with a decision like this at #16.

Williams in a heartbeat.

Either one I would be happy! I would trust Saban on his opinion because he is definately a better talent evaluator then me. BUt since the thread is asking who i would pick i choose Greenway!

Jimmy Williams or Manny Lawson or trade down and draft Bobby Carpenter and Jason Allen.

Greenway only did 16 reps of 225 at the combine. Thats pretty weak

excuse me that was bobby carpenter but I dont believe Greenway performed well either. I think Lawson is a little small

Lawson is too small for what? OLB? He weighs 247 with 4.41 speed.

Greenway only did 16 reps of 225 at the combine. Thats pretty weak He did 19 at his Pro Day. While not impressive, it can be overcome with technique and leverage. Just as Jason Taylor has done.

Jimmy Williams if he is the BPA.

Greenway...

I think Williams will struggle at the corner in the NFL and eventually shift to safety. Let someone else draft him and pay him big rookie money.

Give me Williams between the two. I think it's likely that a CB/S is going to be the pick here, but I have this funny feeling it's going to be Allen and that a lot of folks aren't going to be happy with the pick because it isn't going to be a value pick.

I'd be VERY happy with Allen. He will be a solid player. Definitely one of the best before the hip injury.

I like Allen, but it's hard to find many drafts that have him going at 16. That matters a lot to people around here. Everybody wants a bargain, and nobody wants to overpay. I admit that I'm very much like that myself. I have resigned myself to the reality that Saban is not that way, though. If he sees a player who he believes is a game-breaker who would slide 10 more picks past Miami if he didn't take them, I don't think it matters to Saban. He may try to trade down, but I think he's going to take the player if it's a matter of passing on them or taking them too early. That's just his philosophy.

I agree. Saban knows what he is doing, and while I would hope there is either the attempt to trade down or go BPA, I feel Saban will definitely make the right decision come draft day.
