" Super Agent " and " Local Brick" Drew Rosenhaus was on Sports Xtra tonight and said the Dolphins will be at the Gators Pro day this weekend. He said Miami really likes Percy Harvin cause he is a jack of all trades. He said Harvin fits the player Miami is looking to plug into its WildCat formation. He also said Miami is interested in TE Cornelius Ingram and LT Jason Watkins.


I have been telling you guys for days now that Miami wants a TE in the later rounds. Joey Haynos is a very Raw talent and lacks the blocking ability and bulk Miami likes at TE. The kid is more of a WR to me and I think he is better suited to the Practice Sqaud. The Dolphins have been linked to Cornelius Ingram, Jared Cook and Dan Gronkowski.

I also really like the fact Miami keeps looking G/T prospects so far they have be linked to Philip Loadholt, Herman Johnson and now Jason Watkins. They all see to have the same mold all are over 6'5 and are Mamoth lineman seems like Miami is looking for a Leonard Davis. Guys no offense, but the chances of Satele, Alleman and Murphy staying are starting to appear Slim. Miami will continue to beef up their line

There is nothing wrong with taking a TE in later rounds. But Miami has two that did a great job last year overall. While Haynos could be replaced it would be with a strong blocking TE. Ingram is more of a WR than a TE. He has really good ball skills, but lacks in the blocking areas of the game.

I think Satele could be traded away to a team like the Cards, Broncos or Raiders for a 3rd or 4th round pick in this years draft. I would love to keep him and let him compete for the RG position and depth...but it does not feel like he will be around.

P. Harvin would be a great player for the Wildcat and WR core. I would not care if he was drafted as long as the Top 5 LB's, Michael Jenkins & Vontae Davis were already gone. I think H. Nicks will be gone before we pick, but I would take Harvin over him. I think Harvin will end up being the #2 WR in the class.

We sure don't have to have Harvin. We have Ginn, but it would not hurt having two guys that can take both Safeties deep, while Bess & Cam work the middle of the field. We would have London for the Endzone jumpball fades.

I don't see them drafting Harvin...I think V. Davis is near the top of their board for talent that might be there at #25.

Its gonna be real hard to predict this year who we are picking there is so much talent and a couple of position of need that we need to address. I have said since day one our first pick will be LB and Im sticking to it. Everywhere Parcells has gone he has drafted a LB to become the next LT and I think he will do it this year in MIA. I think Harvin could fall to the second, but I dont see Miami taking WR till the later rounds, I have a feeling Miami really liks its recievers, especially the connection between them and Chad. I think out first three picks could be defense I know LB, CB and DT are very high on their board and I know Miami loves Ron Brace who could be one of our 2nd round picks.

You say Miami wants a TE in the later rounds, but Cook & Ingram are probably 2nd or 3rd round guys. Cook might have the potential to be a late 1st rounder on some teams boards.

It's not too surprising with the lineman they're targeting. Just look at Dallas' backup OL. Guys like Doug Free, James Marten, Pat McQuistan, etc. are all guys who are in teh 6'5" - 6'7" range; long, lean guys who can play multiple positions. Looking at our backups, I only see one guy who fits that mold: Joe Berger. Nate Garner fits the size makeup, but I don't know if he's capable of playing another position.

I'd be surprised if we drafted anybody to help out the wildcat, I really don't think our coaching staff believes the wildcat is the way to the superbowl.

There is a reason why Nate Garner remained on the roster all Season. I think when Miami drafts a G/T a couple of guys days are numbered. I have come to decision that Satele will be traded before the start of the season. Satele does not fit what this organization likes in lineman. Like RoninFin4 said Miami like Mamoth lineman. Berger, Nate Garner and Ndukwe fit the mold, but guys like Alleman, Brandon Fyre and Satele could be gone before we know it.

Cornelius Ingram is coming of a torn ACL so I dont think he will be drafted to much later. Dan Gronkowski is another late round guy Miami could be interested in, but here is where I think it gets a little twisted Jared Cook has a monster combine and Miami has shown interest. I know Miami loves Ron Brace, but I think DT is a position you can target in the 3rd and 4th rounds. I think if Jared Cook is there at 56 Miami takes him. I see Miami first 2 picks being defense.

I think you're right when it comes to the OL, but I personally think Andy Alleman stays before Ike Ndukwe does. Alleman is 6'4" and 310lbs, which is roughly the same dimension as Andre Gurode was at C in Dallas.

Alleman's natural position is C, and he might be groomed under Jake Grove for a while as the C of the future. The nice thing though, is that last year Alleman also got playing time at both LG and RG, so he's got 3 positions he can play across the front.

Normally a team will dress 7 OL, usually an extra swing tackle and an interior man. Alleman fits one of those two spots; Joe Berger might give him a run for his money, but I still think we'll draft a T like Sebastian Vollmer when all's said and done.

I dont agree on the Ndukwe and Alleman. Ndukwe maned the RG position all season and can play Tackle in case of an emergency. Alleman came in late and sucked i see no future for him in Miami. We could see a scenario where our back up lineman are Berger, Ndukwe,Murphy and Rookie that is nine lineman I could see someone be let go. No way we keep more than that. I hate to say it but the more I look at it the more it seems Satele's day are numbered. Satele could be kept iver Murphy, but I dont think miami will keep a lineman who is 6'3.

One mock I saw had the phins taking Gator WR Louis Murphy @ #56. What I have read about him is that he is in terms height and build similar to Nicks, Britt, & Robiskie.

i will say this about Murphy; he does not play like he is 6-2. I dont ever remember him going up him for a ball really high or fighting for a ball. The gators also seemed to throw a lot of deep balls to him so his route running will need a lot of work. He is raw when it comes to that. Also, Percy Harvin is a gamebreaker, no doubt. But a lot of people are over looking his ankle issues. Big time question marks with that

Haynos a WR at 6'8" 270???. I hardly think so

When I say Haynos looks like a reciever I mean he is very slick and struggles in Blocking. He could way 300 pounds, but the guy looks super thin. Miami would not be looking at TE if he was awesome.

Does that look like a TE to you. I mean TE are usually pudging guy who are suppose to at time serve like an extra lineman. Haynos is a very slick TE with chiicken legs. I want a prtotypical TE.
