I would love to see us go after Phillip Merling form Clemson. I am a huge Clemson fan and can tell you this kid is an animal and was upset to see him for go his senior season. 6'5'' 275 quick and has a non stop motor, possibly better than Gaines Adams and would be a perfect fit in Parcell's 3-4 as an outside linebacker.... think Demarcus Ware!

I'm with you on this. I like this guy more than Chris Long and Glenn Dorsey for a 3-4 scheme as an OLB. I dont think he slips to the 2nd but we have to grab him if he does. There wont be anyone better available

I would rather our second round picks be a CB and LT. Nothing against Merling because I like him to but Those two positions are big time needs for us. Remember that this is Will Allens last year and we will need another starting CB next year.

Long-DE

Like most people, I hadn't seen DRC until yesterday's game. From what I saw, I'd be surprised if he lasts until 32. It was only one game, but he showed #1 shut down corner speed, size, ball skills, leaping ability, solid tackling and great anticipation.

I think we should trade the 33th pick. Drop down just a few spots. I think the player taken here will be hard to sign. With the fordeited pick just ahead, the agent will want 1ST round money, the Dolphins will want to pay 2nd round money. I think this means HOLDOUT.

ive been preaching this all along. we have to adress our LT need. carey isnt a LT he would be a beast RT though. imagine ronnie behind a better line. if jeff otah falls he should be our #33 pick. if not then we should look at cherilus or in the 3rd richardson. but our 2nd round should be OT and CB or possible a WR if a Beast one falls (except desean jackson aka ginn jr "jr"-size wise but smaller).if kelly-highly doubt or hardy falls we should look at them but if weend up getting chad johnson we dont need a that early, and maybe look at monk in the late rounds. but if we take Chad we will probably give up our late 2nd for him (which i dont mind). so i see up going...DE long in the first, OT otah or cherilus in the 2nd, second 2nd is for chad johnson, 3rd either CB or MLB beau bell-could be there in the 4th, if not then maybe goff in the 4th.
in a perfect world miami would trade there late 2nd or possibly there 3rd (or maybe a 2nd next year) for Chad johnson and then on draft day make the trade with dallas for there 1,1,2, Barber and mabe a later pick or next year pick.

I dunno about noone better being available, but Merling will be an interesting option..

Side Note: If I'm a DE in high school, I want to go to Clemson. Gaines Adams is gonna be good, Merling is probably a bbetter prospect than him just not as hyped. Ricky Sapp is a very good prospect, and Daquan Bowers will probably be a top 5 pick if he lives up to his potential

It doesn't mean holdout. You can't sign 2nd rounders to the same kind of contracts that 1st rounders get. An agent isn't dumb enough to use this as an excuse on a holdout, because it isn't like the fins had a choice. This isn't the same as just letting time run out on our pick, and selecting a few minutes later.

Davis is 6'2

Merling will probably go Round 1.

Davis is listed at 6'4" 255lbs. I would take him at 32 in a heartbeat. Not opposed to waiting it out until late 2nd or 3rd as a good TE could be there in Bennett, Rucker or Carlson. But let's not kid ourselves, TE is a BIG need for us with a young QB and Parcells' history of heavy TE use.

We have so many needs O-line, D-line, secondary....ehhhh...take the best player....we'll find a home for him.

DRC is the way to go, unless we trade with Dallas then:

1a Calais Campbell
1b DRC
2a Fred Davis
2b Philip Wheeler

Davis is 6'2". He was measured at the Senior Bowl weigh in.

Hmm how about:

1 C Long at #1 OLB
2. Philip Wheeler LB
2. Pat Sims DT
3. Carl Nicks T
4. John Carlson/Brad Cottam
6. Jonal St. Dic De

Granted it does leave our CB position undermanned, "but" you have to be able to run the ball and stop the run first and foremost....

He measured at 6'2 5/8 which is an inch shorter than Winslow and 7 pounds heavier. Don't think thats a reason to ignore him by any means. I'm not married to taking him, as long as we land one of the top 4 or 5 TE's.

Hey now, I really like Davis. I was just saying he isn't 6'4".

In all of the drafts that Bill Parcells has been involved in he has only spent a #2 on a Te once, Anthony Fasano, he has spent plenty of picks in the 4-7 range.

The deviation is Anthony Becht, and he was a blocking Te.

We have 5 picks in the first 4 rounds. We need to address these STARTING TEAM needs with them:

DT, OT, CB, TE and ILB where we don't have sufficient STARTING talent.

We also need to draft another QB, an OG and a WR. Getting a QB before the 4th round, a RB or a DE/OLB I think are all luxuries that we can't afford right now.

That's why I think:

1) Dorsey DT
2a) Otah (I think DRC is gone) OT
2b) Mayo ILB
3) Porter CB
4) Cottam or Rucker TE

Then late draft:
6) Flynn (QB-LSU)
7) Crummey (bad name, big guard)

other) should get at least 1 late round comp pick, depending on how late either Hubbard (around 5th round, WR-Wisc) or Monk (WR-ARK, 7th round)...

While everyone seems to like DEs and OLBs, we have starting quality talent there. We have at DE Holliday, Rod Wright and Roth as a backup; at OLB, we have Porter, JT and Crowder.
