Dolphins | Team hopes Quinn falls to them
Wed, 21 Mar 2007 19:08:59 -0700
Greg A. Bedard, of the Palm Beach Post, reports with the Houston Texans dropping to the No. 10 pick, that means there is one fewer team of ahead of the Miami Dolphins (http://www.kffl.com/team/22/nfl) (No. 9 pick) who might take Notre Dame QB Brady Quinn (http://www.kffl.com/player/13456/nfl). The Oakland Raiders (http://www.kffl.com/team/28/nfl) (first overall), Detroit Lions (http://www.kffl.com/team/16/nfl) (second), and Minnesota Vikings (http://www.kffl.com/team/23/nfl) (seventh) all could consider Quinn or the other top-rated quarterback, LSU QB JaMarcus Russell (http://www.kffl.com/player/16132/nfl).

I think we are all hoping Quinn falls to us and if the Viking or Cleveland get Carr it can happen.

Cleveland could also be considering him. I don't understand why everyone keeps ignoring that possibility.

I would like to point out that we are also probably hoping Calvin Johnson and Joe Thomas fall to us as well. Not exactly sure how this qualifies as "news."

Its news, on a very slow time of the year. I post these things so other readers who appeciate this can think of the possibilities of us drafting Quinn. It also comfirms that we are very much Interested in replacing our QB. You dont like it dont read it and dont post in my thread

I didn't mean to imply you should not have posted it. I would expect any Dolphins news to get posted here. I'm just surprised KFFL did.

I'm not sure how you come to the conclusion that this confirms anything except a reporter's speculation.

Oh ok! Everything is real slow right now and KFFL has been a bit crappy as of late.

Nowhere does it say that RandyCam wants Quinn.
It is just speculation.

Sorry...it was too tempting.

I think with the Texans now out of the equation we have a much more realistic chance to get Quinn. I think it gives us a good chance to get a top offensive guy overall in general as the Falcs are likely to go Defense. Landry has to be considered their top pick, although they will strongly look at Adams/Anderson/Carriker and possibly Branch/Okoye.

I certainly hope we are able to get Quinn either at the 9 or trading up. Elite franchise QB's like him come around rarely and we'd have to really tank in order to get Brian Brohm next year. I wonder what became of Quinn's 2nd interview with Cameron, the one where he was supposed to have all his ND plays memorized.

I like Quinn, but I'm not sold on him being an elite QB in this league. Part of me says he can be like a Brees or a Palmer, and the other part of me says he may be like Ryan Leaf or Joey Harrington. Certain QB's, like Peyton Manning, Carson Palmer, etc u know are "elite" as u put it . . . Quinn IMO is in that grey area of a Rex Grossman, David Carr, Charlie Frye where the potential is there but will it be fulfilled. I think Quinn needs the right system and team for him to be successful in the NFL. I don't know if that teams is Miami. HOwever I would be dissappointed if Miami didn't snatch him at 9 if he fell to us . . . just like arizona did with Leinart. U just don't pass on potential franchise QB's when they fall in your lap . . . I don't agree with trading up for Quinn at all however.

While I wouldn't consider Quinn the can't miss prospect that Peyton Manning was coming out of college, he is much more well regarded than Charlie Frye and Grossman were coming out of college. I'd say that Russell may have more potential, Quinn is the safest QB in the draft. He should be a guy that can step in immediately and develop into a good starting QB in a year or two, much like Matt Leinart is in the process of doing now.

True, Quinn's not a 100% guarantee to succeed but he has something Grossman, Carr, Frye, and especially Leaf don't have: tremendous work ethic (the guy takes the initiative to check out Patriot tapes of Tom Brady), smart decision making, and experience in a pro style offense from college. The only thing that would possibly keep him from succeeding is physical skills and being on a hopeless team with no offense. Weis taught him well and I'm sure if he comes here, we'll have the QB coaching abilities to keep Quinn on his feet. I'm pretty sure his short-medium game would translate well to a Cameron offense and not to mention our QB coach was his draft mentor.

i think there might be a possibility of him dropping but i think we have a good QB if hes healthy or we could pick one up in the early-late second round with staton or smith. So i think we should trade up with detroit, which i heard they might be talking to DET, for the 1, 2, 3, or a player instead of a pick, and get calvin johnson. it would help culpepper out to have a great WR like he did with moss in MINN. the our D-line would have to hold the blocks as long because he will get open. we could draft o-line later on in the draft. we might not pick a QB until the fourth because we are really close to getting trent green, a veteran who could help the QB out and teach him alot. miami could make a good QB out of a fourth round pick.

We need to hope that Cleveland lands Carr at this stage in my opinion. That Weis / Crennel connection worries me. If the Browns indeed pull the trigger and sign Carr, I think Quinn could fall to us....

you should be worried about MINN cuz i am 90% sure that the browns are gonna take AP and the minn will be the only team that stands in the way except detroit scares me a little.

but i would rather trade up to get johnson.

this would be ideal...
1. Oak - Jamarcus Russell..they keep Moss and draft the arm
2. Det - Joe Thomas.. martz thinks he can groom a late rounder
3. Cle - AP...too impressive to pass up
8. Min - Someone other than Quinn bc they sign Carr

I think we need to wait this out and see if someone ahead of us in the draft starts to sign Carr before we pursue bc trent green groomin quinn would be the best for us

Quinn to me has all the tools and smarts to do what Cameron wants him to do. Alot of a QB's success depends on the system and having coaching that enables that person to succeed.

Quinn is quick in his drop backs and is quick to get rid of the ball and would be very effective in Camerons offense. He is mobile and can move around in the pocket effectively.
Does this translate into success? No. But as long as the kid has the tools and good coaching from the start of his career, then he could be great IMO. If he ends up like Brees, that is a good thing. Look at what the guy has done these past few years. Isnt that what we want? Hello?

I think the possibility of getting Quinn just got a whole lot better but the Vikings are the team to hope that they get a QB in free agency that is a viable starter, then Quinn essentially becomes ours if Cleveland goes elsewhere. And I do not believe in going up to get him there. I say wait this thing out for a couple of weeks.

That's why you go ahead and offer them Culpepper A few days before the draft for like a 6th rounder. Make it low enough where they will bite and make it more likely for them to take Peterson.

Minny will take Landry even if Quinn fell to them IMO.

Oakland- Should take Johnson

Detroit- Millen needs to win now. He needs an impact player and isn't thinking of the future.

Barring any trade ups we seriously might even have out chocie of either QB. Possibly. Do I see that happening? NO!!! But 1 will free fall like Rodgers did. Not as far as Rodgers, but he will fall non the less

We could offer them Culpepper but why would they take him? Culpepper has yet to show he's healthy enough to be a starter for us much less another team.
