Mel kiper had the miami dolphins taking donte whitner of osu (S) as our number one pick. he had the dolphins passing and let fall to other postitions later in the first round santonio holmes (new england), allen, jimmy williams, tye hill. these players have been mentioned going to the dolphins in other drafts.

Kiper said whitner has been going up the draft boards and now is the second best safety behind huff

I hate the pick, with Cromartie, Hill, Allen all available I would not even look at Whitner, I think he's overrated and is a bit of a hype prospect.

Like many draft gurus they will do a few dozen mock drafts before the draft and then point out to the one that is closest.

I doubt we will draft a S in the first round unless its Michael Huff.The knock on Huff is that many scouts think he would make a better safety than a CB and that will drop him down.

I am hoping to trade down and get a CB like Cromartie and a S or OL.

I can't see us going DB after we've gotten 4 of them in free agency...I think it'll be OLB,DT or WR at 16.

If Saban takes Whitner, it's a value/versatility pick. Whitner can play both safety AND corner. Remember, he was recruited as a corner and played CB at OSU before moving to S. He has great coverage skills to go along with his great speed and physical nature. I think 16 is a little high for him, but i can see reasoning behind the pick if it comes to fruition. I like Whitner a lot better than Youboty.

Whitner would not be a terrible pick at all. He's the hardest working player on Ohio State. Hawk and Carpenter both have said that Whitner watches game tapes before and after practice, and usually takes a couple tapes home to his apartment to study. He's always prepared for his opponent.

Plus, he's probably the 3rd hardest hitter in the draft (behind Huff and Bing), but is the smartest.

well id like the pick.........any chance he is there in the third?

No.

But I don't know if 16 is too early for him or not. Depends on where everybody has him on their boards.

I like him. He's insane - a quality I like in a safety.

On ESPN they say one of his weaknesses is that he will take on anybody, anytime... and that he has to learn when he is overmatched and not take them straight up.

I grew up in Seattle area and, even though I was a Fins fan (lived in florida until I was 7) I LOVED watching Seattle games just to watch Kenny Easley.

I would kill to have a maniacal hard-hitting safetly like that on the Dolphins - I think it would put our defense over thetop even more than a top cornerback or D-lineman.

All that said, 16 may be too early for him.

well that sucks considering we dont have a 2nd round.

He wouldn't be there in the mid 2nd either. This guy is a mid/late first to very early 2nd round pick at the latest.

If Saban takes Winter I will do my pateneted throw something at the TV move that I perfected under Wanny.

CB is a very deep class this year.

CB is a very deep class this year.

Yes however it's not an elite class at the top...

The elite class as the top this year might RB.

After the top 7 there seems to be a drop off, similar to 2004(GREAT DRAFT THOUGH).

CB is a very deep class this year.
People keep saying that but I don't really know much about players past the first two rounds, can someone here name a couple guys we can look at in the third round and beyond for the secondary?

Remember, Madison and Surtain were second and third round picks respectively. You don't need a top ten pick to get a good corner.
