These are all players projected to go in the 7th round or later. I chose them based on their size, speed, production, and ability to fit the Dolphins’ projected 3-4 defense. They would be good UFA to look at

RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis Ole Miss
Height: 5-11 Weight: 220 40 Time: 4.54
230- 1183- 4.9- 6 TD
“01/20/08 - East-West Shrine Week in Review: (Round Middle 6, 7): East-West Shrine Week in Review: (Round Middle 6, 7): RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis (Ole Miss): Short, solid back with good power and initial quickness. A strong RB class and a lack of breakaway speed make him a late-round bargain. Stepped up to handle inside pass rushers in practice and during the game. 01/15/08 - East-West Shrine Monday Practice: This guy runs so low to the ground that the moles are jealous. His shiftiness and stop-start quickness are hard to ignore, as well. We'll see how it translates when the pads come on, but he could make himself enough money this week to keep both those last names.”

WR Steve Johnson Kentucky
Height: 6-2 Weight: 200 40 Time: 4.49
54- 928- 17.2- 11 TD
“Named first-team All-SEC by CollegeFootballNews.com… Has two-game winning touchdown catches this year, both vs. teams ranked in the top-10 at the time…” Played 2 years, JC transfer

WR Marcus Monk Arkansas
Height: 6-6 Weight: 218 40 Time: 4.59
50- 962- 19.2- 11 TD in '06
“He tied for the team lead in catches and garnered freshman All-SEC honors for his efforts. As a sophomore in 2005, Monk caught 35 passes for a team-high 476 yards and seven touchdowns. In 2006, Monk produced the best numbers of his career with 50 catches for a career-high 962 yards. He caught a school record 11 touchdown passes and averaged 19.2 yards per catch” Knee-injury kept him out for most of the season

TE Adam Bishop Nevada
Height: 6-5 Weight: 245 40 Time: 4.76
14- 223- 15.9- 7 TD
“Dominating blocker and athletic pass-catcher ... Was named the team’s Outstanding Offensive Player in voting by his teammates and coaches ... Earned second-team All-WAC honors ... Led the nation in percentage of receptions for a touchdown (50%) as seven of his 14 catches went for scores ... Averaged a whopping 15.9 yards per catch” Also long-snaps

DE Jordan Reffett Washington
Height: 6-5 Weight: 292 40 Time: 5.07
36 TT, 10.0 TFL, 3.5 Sacks, 4 Passes defended, 1 FF, 2 Blocked kicks in ‘07
College DT who could move to 3-4 DE

ILB A.J. Raebel Wisconsin-Whitewater
Height: 6-5 Weight: 244 40 Time: ~4.6
“15 GP; 91 TT, 19.5 TFL, 4 SK, 2 INT, 3 PBU, 1 QBH, 2 FF; 1st team All-Wisconsin in '06. 15 GP; 111 TT, 15 TFL, 5 SK, 2 INT, 4 PBU, 3 FF; 1st team All-Wisconsin in '05.”
Extreme longshot… Two-time All-American… D3 National champs and runners up in 05 and 06… Possibly an OLB

SS Bobbie Williams BCC
Height: 6-0 Weight: 214 40 Time: 4.55
“The hard-hitting Williams has 75 tackles (34 solo), four tackles for loss, three passes defended, one forced fumble and two interceptions for 41 yards.” Played FS

SR 7
02-07-2008, 07:09 PM
wow taht Raebal guy is one hell of a player. Hard hitter, never quits and one SMART/TOUGH muther

02-07-2008, 07:10 PM



no...but in all seriousness he will prob. be picked around 6-7...I think he'll be drafted. would love to see him in a phin uni.

02-08-2008, 12:48 PM
based on what i just read in these posts,certainly players worth taking a look at,because it sure can't hurt us.

02-08-2008, 01:19 PM
Green-Ellis and Johnson flashed a little in the games I saw them in. Especially Green-Ellis. I have not looked at either closely, but I did notice them when looking at other players.

02-09-2008, 12:26 AM
Haven't found any video of him but out of all of them Adam Bishop the TE from Nevada seemed like he could be the biggest sleeper. Good size, good speed, it said he blocked very well and averaged 16 yards a catch. For a TE that's really good

02-09-2008, 12:47 AM
A lot of us here love Marcus Monk.

02-09-2008, 12:56 AM
Boise State- OT RYAN CLADY

He's going in the first round, fer sure... Just still a little under looked to be honest.

02-09-2008, 10:23 AM
A lot of us here love Marcus Monk.

he could be the marques colston of this year's wr draft class! it would be great if we get him in the 6th or even 7th round, but i think he could be taken earlier!

02-09-2008, 12:34 PM
A lot of us here love Marcus Monk.

ditto that

02-11-2008, 05:40 AM
Jordon Dizon OLB Led nation in solo tackles
Jamie Silva FS - was awesome in the East/West game
James Rivers WR - always played big in bowl games
Ryan Grice-Mullens Slot - highest ypc among Hawaii recievers
Anthony Alridge RB - amazing ave. and speed, however very small.

Elliott 1
02-11-2008, 06:29 AM
Kolo Kapanui....TE....H-Back.....FB Maybe the best playmaking TE available

Xavier Lee......TE......H-back.....WR Maybe a better WR than Adarius Bowman

Danny Woodhead......RB........Division 2 player of the year, rushed for nearly 3000 yds

02-11-2008, 09:04 AM
I'm still shocked that Marcus Monk is projected so low. I guess it is partly due to the fact that he was somewhat banged up this year. He would be a steal in the 6th or 7th if you ask me.

I think Kory Robertson out of Virginia Tech might be a nice UDFA pick to develop at NT along with Soliai. Andrew Bain has great size and decent speed at guard and would be a hometown kid to bring in for training camp. Greyson Gunheim from Washington is your standard tweener that might be worth taking a look at as a special teamer and OLB backup.

02-11-2008, 12:34 PM
Raeble's highlight reel was pretty impressive and even though its D3 leading a defense that won a national championship has to count for something

Green-Ellis started his career at IU and then transfered after starting as a freshman, im not sure if he has a history of injuries but he has been in college a while and wear and tear might be an issue
