Butler was dissatisfied with his 4.45 Combine time and wanted to prove he's a sub-4.4 corner. NFL Network's Mike Mayock says Butler also looked "fluid and quick" in position drills. Butler is a late first-round possibility.

between Butler, Vontae Davis, Sean Smith and Alphonso Smith, we should be able to get a solid Cb in rd 1, if that's what we want to do. i still think LB/DL is higher on the list of the FO.

I am pretty sure the Dolphins are looking to draft a CB over a WR simply because a good CB in free agency cost so much in comparison to WR. Having a good CB we draft at a relatively inexpensive price for the next 5 years just makes to much sense.

I like Butler, I think he would be a solid first round pick.

If we draft Butler, I think I will pee my pants. I have wanted the guy for a while.

Butler is the only legitimate shutdown corner prospect in this draft.

Don't believe the people telling you that the 2nd or even 3rd round prospects are just as good. They aren't.

As far as as WR goes; I've never seen so much misinformation and football immaturity in my life.

The Dolphins have cap room. There remains stud veteran WR's out there.
If the Dolphins wanted another WR they would just hire one.

Didn't they come out publicly and say they might sign a veteran.

The Dolphins don't have a real veteran WR because Wilford likely gets cut later on.

However, the Dolphins are loaded with good young WR's. Not great, just good, but this years draft class is exactly that; a bunch of good WR's all the way through, top to bottom.

Why the H__ would the Dolphins draft another good(not great) WR in the 1st round, when everyone knows it usually takes two years for a WR to apprentice in the NFL anyway!!

Brandon London has his two years in. He is ready to contribute. It is going to be a lot harder than most people think to beat him out. Not only that, a draftee will have to stay on the roster after Camarillo returns, and Camarillo has a substantial contract.

Drafting a WR in the 1st round makes no sense at all. It's a total crapshoot every year and this year more than others.

Might as well draft Hartline in the 7th. He may turn out better than Nicks and Robiskie anyway.

And now, Jaison Williams, at 6'4" 245 lbs. has run a 4.4 at his pro day.
Maybe he is the "end all be all" in the 4th round.

One thing is for sure, the Dolphins will not take a WR in the 1st round.

As far as Butler goes, he may go a lot sooner than people think. These guys who actually do the drafting aren't idiots, not most of them anyway.

He is certainly my guy. I think it is also imperative that he can return some kicks here and there. maybe play a little WR. who knows?

thats my pick. since the senior bowl ive liked this guy. this is the kind of CB u leave on an island and not worry, some sites have him compared to asante samuels (or however u spell it). we could always get a pssrusher in rd.2 (see my sig)

I would love Butler....if he is not there, then hopefully someone else will drop to us like Clay Matthews.

The biggest concern with Butler is his lack of size and strength. He does have speed and athletic ability but bigger receivers can push him around

I think it depends on how the regime stacks the draft board. At 25 you've got guys like Harvin, Nicks, Britt there at WR, but you also have guys like Butler, both Smiths, maybe even a Vonate Davis at CB.

At 44 you still might have a guy like D.J. Moore or even Sean Smith still there, as well as maybe Britt, Robiskie, and Iglesias. Several of those guys fall into that range of picks from 25-50.

That said, I still link a LB or NT prospect if there, is the choice.

I totally agree. The people here who think Parcells is going to draft a WR in the first round in year 2 of a rebuild are just plain senile and delusional.

In part, i think what your saying is true but part of that thinking is a bit of a Myth as well.

Bill Parcells didn't take a WR in Dallas high but he did in other places.

New York Giants
1985 Stacy Robinson 2 round 46 overall.
1987 Mark Ingram 1st round 28 overall.
1987 Stephen Baker 3rd round 83 overall.

Pats
1993 Vincent Brisby 2 round 56 overall.
1994 Kevin Lee 2 round 56 overall.
Jets
2000 Laveranues Coles 3rd round 78 overall.
1997 Dedric Ward 3rd round 88 overall.

It's clear that Bill wants to run the ball up the gut and other then getting a New Center "done" the next best thing is to get a WR that will demand other teams to take the 8th guy out of the box.

As good or as bad some think Ginn is, he only does that for us around 30% of the time and real 1 WR's do it about 70 % of the time.

So if we could get a true #1 it would take the 8th guy out of the box making our run game better plus Ginn would be one on one all day.That seems like awinner winner chicken dinner to me.

Last time Bill was on a team in need of a true # 1 WR he took one in the 1st and 3rd rounds.

All i know is with us having three 1st day picks, if we don't come away with with one of the top 7 players at CB and WR then it would be super crazy.

I wouldn't be upset with that pick, but I would definitely prefer Vontae Davis..

I also don't understand this "Parcells isn't going to take a WR round 1" stuff.. They are going to take the best player on their board. If a WR is there, they aren't going to skip him and draft someone for depth just on principle.

I think WR is a very likely option for our first round pick.. Look at what they have done so far, they have resigned Crowder and added Wake. They resigned Bell and added Wilson. They resigned Carey and added Grove. I would be a little surprised if our pick at 25 is a linebacker or offensive lineman. I am pretty sure they did what they needed to do there through free agency and aside from late round picks I dont expect to see either of them picked early.

We really need help at CB and I still think we have room to add a promising WR prospect or two. So at 25, I wouldnt be shocked at all to see a CB or WR picked and I am pretty sure thats what we will be seeing.

I would be surprised if it is a LB or OL

If Butler is there at 25 then i'd be delighted if we grabbed him ,but he might be gone , there are a few teams with similar needs to ours and if BP and co have Butler high on their boards you can imagine the other teams needing CB help will have too. If he's gone i think we take Vontae Davis (if he's there) if not its OLB i reckon.

Like someone else said, I would prefer Vontae Davis over Butler. Malcolm Jenkins looks like an excellent FS prospect, so if I had to rate the CB's . . minus Jenkins, this is my list:

1. Vontae Davis
2. Darius Butler
3. Alphonso Smith
4. DJ Moore
5. Sean Smith
