Looks like both Clausen and Tate will be entering the draft in 2010, according to ESPN News. I don't know if I would go after Tate in the first round, but you have to take him if he is there in round two.

I think Clausen will probably be a top ten pick.

Tate might be there when we pick in the second,but again,this years draft is AT LEAST 4 rounds deep at EVERY position,so even if he isnt there,we'll still be fortunate enough to grab someone jsut as worthy.

Or, say no thanks and load up on the defensive talent in this draft since it has plenty of it. This is not a good draft for WR's. Of course, Antonio Bryant is already a dolphin imo. Time to fix the defense and get a #1 WR in Bryant. Next draft is the draft for WR's.

Tate won't be there for our 2nd rounder. May go in the end of the 1st. Clausen will be the 1st QB taken imo.

I hate Notre Dame, but Golden Tate is a beast. Every time I've watched him play I've come away impressed. He could be the home run hitter this offense has been lacking for the past couple of years. He's a helluva returner as well if we let go of Ginn.

Our WR corp is currently loaded with a bunch of possession receivers who don't scare anyone. Bess is a great slot receiver, and Camarillo is reliable. Ginn is the only guy we have who can stretch the field deep, but that does no good if he can't catch it. I'd be OK with Tate in the first two rounds.

I have to agree with Bryant already being a Fin. What our offense showed yesterday is that our wrs are plenty capable, we just need that true #1 wr.

I agree. Tate would be an excellent addition to this team. I love how he goes up for the ball. In that way he plays much bigger than his size and stretches the field horizontally. I would trade down a little and take Tate in the 1st.

I knew Clausen would come out eventually. He couldn't hide his homosexuality forever.

But really, Clausen will be the first QB drafted, Tate late 1st rounder.

We aren't "letting" Ginn go . . . we gotta get some value for him if he is not a Dolphin after this season.

Ginn opposite of Bryant would be interesting.

Pass on both guys . . . Tate doesn't have the best hands . . . last thing we need is another WR with questionable hands. Remember . . . Ginn didn't drop passes in college and not much his first 2 years . . . it has become more of a problem this year . . . but not so much lately.

We already have our QB of the present and future starting for us.

As long as the rest of the NFL has tape on the 2009 Dolphins, we'll be letting him go. Maybe, Maybe, we get a late rounder based solely on his return abilities. He is not starting material, he is a liability out there...he played well against that Pats though, I'll give him credit.

Any quarterbacks and left tackles that enter the draft and look to be drafted in the top 10 or 15 is all the better for us. Drops another guy down the board at a position of need.

Golden Tate's a good player. I'd welcome him on the team.
