The Miami Dolphins select James Laurinaitis of Ohio State. We will not draft #1 chicken little. Stayed in school his final year to advance his learning on the position and showed loyalty. Proved it isn't all about the money, at least to this day and age after consulting LB legends of the past out of OSU. He is literally a more physically gifted, young Zach Thomas and we all know what came of that career. We have no unifying voice on defense with our 2 leaders gone. Now we have one. The trenches are mostly set, now we pick the people who defend and break through them for stage 2 of 3 of rebuillding.

I'll pass. He disappears in all their big games and can't get off blocks to same his life. That's not a trait that you want for a 3-4 ILB. Maualuga would be much better. But that being said, we need pass rushers and secondary help much more. Did you watch that AZ game?

I would love to get Maualuga or Laurinaitis in the first round. I don't think we will havethe #1 overall pick again, but I do think there is a good chance it will be in the top five. We should be able to land one of these two Linebackers.

I'd venture to guess we'll be picking in the top 5 again...

If given the choice between Lars and Rey......give me Rey....

He's a 260 pound version of Troy Polamalu on defense.

Rey is a beast. but there is a certain Safety from the Trojans that just kept jumping out everytime it seemed. Mays is going to be a beast as well.

with Vonte Davis, Michael Jenkins and Mays there are going to be some good DBs in this draft. i think we have to get one of them.

if we could land Rey Maualuga in the first round,and Taylor Mays in the second...THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!

but..back to reality...:boohoo:...Taylro isnt makinging it out the top 20.He really is a top 5 talent,but he is sorta overrated,and that'll his status.I seriously see the Redskins grabbing him to replace the late Sean Taylor(R.I.P man),somewhere alone 15-17th pick.But dont worry,Hamlin(in my sig) is just as good,maybe not as fast,but he can hit as hard as Taylor can,and he can do many thngs that Taylro can too,including run support.

We are going to bankrupt this team by having the first overall pick every year. This is what happens when you change coaches and GM's every couple years. We went from being one of the most stable organizations in the NFL when Shula was here to being a total joke. I have been following this team since 1971 and I think yesterday was as close to rock bottom as it gets, other than us threatening to go 0-16 last year.

Depending on where we are drafting, the players I'd like to have most are:

Rey Maualuga, ILB, USC
Vontae Davis, CB, Illinois
Taylor Mays, S, USC
Brian Cushing, OLB, USC
Michael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech

Not in any particular order really. However, I do push hard for Maualuga.

No, we have to get Rey Rey. The man is an absolute MONSTER! and i agree with Miami Dolphin1985, Hamlin would be a perfect pick in the second round. he can play SS and FS,too

I know what you mean. I live in L.A. so I always get to watch the Trojans. Rey is a beast by any standards. I've seen him do everything here. Cover, play the run, get to the QB. But mainly, he makes plays happen no matter what.

How are players like Fil Moala, Taylor mays and brian cushing performing?

Mays and Cushing are pretty much playing like they should, especially Mays.

Moala is still kinda stuck behind the shadow that has been Sedrick Ellis, so it's tougher for him to break out and be noticed.

Also, don't count out Kevin Ellison.

I dont understand your post? How did we get the Jets first round pick? Are we going to trade up to get it from them?

If that's true, what makes you think he'll still be there at 7?

Tebow?

Why don't we just wait until Alex Smith is cut?

Tewbow won't go in the top 10 anyway. He'll be found out before then.

I think Tebow was found out this week, he really just isn't a QB and Ole Miss isn't even close in talent. Tebow over threw how many easy 6's? His avg / completion and rush are down to non-superman levels. Meyer has also been exposed. But think about Tebow, the guy couldn't beat St. Augustine in HS, and has 5 losses as a starter in less than two years... c'mon he's just not a winner. Stafford is the #1 QB taken.

yeah he overthrew some passes, but he didnt make mistakes, florida's overall team sucks tebow is that team, hes a smart player and it seems like he plays better when he gets hit....did u watch stafford play??? he didnt do anything until bama started loosening up on d

i dono i watch every game as well and ellison seems more of a playmaker and more rangy then mays. either ellison is always finding a way to get to the ball or its just that they dont throw near mays and its always near ellisons side. either way hes a blaler as well.
