come on everybody...anyone who knows this team can clearly see that drafting Okoye/Branch/Anderson would not be a value pick....Yes Keith Traylor is getting old along with the rest our defensive line...But we do have youth!!! Vickerson and Evan are both huge guys who need alittle bit of developement, but i believe will one day be contributors in our system. Not to mention Matt Roth who is going to be in the ProBowl either this year or the next...People we have youth on our DLine, making it not an imediate need!!! We need help on offense specifically OLine where we dont even have enough people to fill out our roster...anyone who watched this team last year knows offense is the problem...I will be very uneasy if we go with one of the previously mentioned Dlineman...The only defensive players I will be happy with are Landry or Willis...Both guys i believe fill our needs more than DT/NT...I mean look at our linebackers Zach and Joey Porter are both older guys with no youth backing them up..So how does our dline need to younger, more than our linebackers?? Alot of people just dont understand the Dolphins I guess, even Mel Kiper has us taking Okoye pfff...what a joke...

Here is what i believe our plan should be come draft day...Trading up is completely stupid...Its dumb to trade picks for someone when there is no certanty as to how he will play in the NFL...as tempting as it would be to trade up for Quinn, or Calvin Johnson (who i believe will have very good nfl careers)...So if Quinn, Johnson, Pat Willis, or Landry are gone by our pick, or if FO thinks they wont fit our system, other options would be Teddy Ginn and Levi Brown (whom I was high on for about two months, but the more i read and watch the more Im not sold...we should trade down...possibly multiple times, but stay in position to a player who may take a year or two, but will eventually be on the same level as Joe Thomas and his name is Joe Staley...This guy is just as athletic as Joe Thomas...He weighed 199 lbs when he entered college as a TE...Has probally the best work ethic out of any prospect in this draft...I mean you cannot question a guys work ethic when he moves from TE to DE to LT...and not to mention he has put on 70 to 90 lbs and still runs an official 4.7 and it is reported he even ran faster around a 4.66, yes i know speed means nothing for an olineman, but what this does show is that he has put on good weight, he is not fat, just an athletic guy who strives to be great...

I don't believe we will pick @ 9. We will either trade up
or down depending on who is there.

On second thought if we do stay @9 I take Pat Willis and
one of the QB's with one our seconds.

Like i said in my previous post I think it would be dumb to trade up...Stay put or find a sucker who will trade up....Better to find a sucker than to be the sucked...
