I usually don't listen to what most of these so called experts have to say but when Mayock talked about Kindle I was intrigued. I am not saying I want him I am just saying he intrigues me. He did have two sacks in the champ game vs Bama. So anyone out there like this kid and think if both McClain or Bryant were gone by 12, that this would be a wise and good pick by Miami?

Nope. Rather take Everson Griffen.

I'd take him over McClain. I missed his workouts, so I don't know. For the last few months, I had been decidedly off the Kindle train, but I saw and read a few things made me anxious about his combine. From what I've read, he did alright. I hear he struggled in the coverage drills - an area where I thought he'd HAVE to excel in order to justify a mid-to-high first round grade.

I vote No as well. Not at 12. At 43 would be ok, depending on who else is left.

Yeah, I like him as a player...but no way at 12. No way.

Not at 12. Overrated by many.

I will stick to my guns on Kindle. I think he is the most I pure 3-4 OLB in this draft. I think he is a SOLB and already did many of the duties at Texas in the scheme they played that he would be asked to do in the NFL in a 3-4. I think Kindle was a good college player, but think IF he can stay out of trouble could be a better pro. The issues I have with him in Miami is being in Miami. He has one DUI and looks like another covered up by wrecking his car then leaving the scene. I like Kindle a lot and think he is going to be a very good NFL player, but worry about him in South Beach.

Not at 12. He is way too stiff to play our OLB spot.

At this point, the closest to sure things are Eric Berry, Earl Thomas (one of them will be there for us). Spiller as well. Unless we trade down to 19-24 area, I just do not like kindle, McClain, Spoon, Dez or anyone else at 12.

I would take at least a half a dozen players at 12 before Kindle

I can think of a dozen - the guy is not a tackling machine...

I say NO too, especially not at 12.

not yet. I think he's more in play than you would think but right now, to me anyways, he's way too on dimensional.

If I hear he's done good in interviews and private workouts, I'll start warming up to him.

His lack of production bothered me but watching him in the drills at the combine you can tell he has the ability. So the question is why the lack of plays in the backfield this year?

I am on the fence, at this point I wouldn't be devastated if they grabbed him depending on who was left but at the same time I wouldn't be heartbroken if they passed either.

I like Kindle. I dont get where stuff comes from around here. I really dont.

The guy who first hit that Bama RB at the goal line stand was......Sergio Kindle (from the outside hitting inside).

Kindle can play. His heart at the next level is my concern. I think he has plenty instincts to cover and rush the passer. He certainly has the size.

he's a baller.

problem is....we may draft a Safety or CJ Spillar.

I would take him in a heartbeat. He is a DeMarcus Ware clone skill-wise. Not saying he will be as good by any means. But I think he has that type of ability. And he is the most pro-ready conversion OLB in this draft IMO. Sure there are some guys like Griffen and JPP that have more potential, but they are just that and don't have the experience at OLB that Kindle has already.

Mayock has him #7 overall in his rankings, and he is enamoured with this guy. And there isn't anyone I trust more when it comes to the NFL Draft than Mike Mayock. He knows what he's doing, and if he loves Kindle, I think everyone should.

Short answer on Kindle....no. :ponder:

I like Kindle very much , I actually think he's one of those players who is suited more to the pro game than college. Call me crazy, in watching film on him I can actually see some explosion similar to that of a vintage LT. I didn't say he was going to be LT, but I see similar type ability and a motor that never stops. You just never know.

Not at 12, dont think he is value for that high a pick.

I get a little tripped up here. I respect Mayock's opinion, and I've seen flashes from Kindle. But, then sometimes he looks stiff. I'm starting to think, though, that J. Hughes wouldn't be a reach at #12. He's the best pure pass rusher in the draft; he looked great in cover drills; and he measures out well.

True, I like Jerry Hughes as well and he was UBER-productive in college. Maybe the most productive DE in college football the last couple years. But I see him as more of a late first, early 2nd guy.

If we decide to go another route in the first, ala Dez Bryant, Earl Thomas or Rolando McClain (if we don't get Dansby), I would see Hughes being our target in the 2nd. I don't think he's the perfect fit, and he may not be a target at all considering he only measured in at just under 6'2" in the draft, but he could work.

Everyone really needs to start taking into account that guys like Graham and Hughes may be taking completely off our board with their height meeasurements. Both came in under 6'2" at the combine and that is not typically the type of LB the Tuna usually goes after. He values size over anything and typically doesn't look at guys under that mark, maybe even under 6'3".

I think these are the guys we will be targeting in each round:

1. Sergio Kindle, Jason Pierre-Paul, Everson Griffen, Derrick Morgan
2. Ricky Sapp, Greg Hardy, Koa Misi
3. Willie Young, Brandon Lang, George Selve, Lindsey Witten
4. Cameron Sheffield, Jermaine Cunningham

Agreed. I have a lot of respect for Mike Mayock's judgment. And this is another source that I also respect a lot putting us on Kindle.

i am on the Dez Bryant bandwagon if he is there if no i am on with Sean Weatherspoon who will be the best 3-4 ILB out of the entire lb draft class IMO

If I took a defensive player from the Texas Longhorns it would be Lamarr Houston in round three.

I'm all for Kindle with the signing of Dansby and hopefully Clark. We need a NT which we can get in Rounds 2,3, or 4. Theres no spectacular NT worth getting in the 1st round. Pierre-Paul barely played college ball and is way too tall and lanky to be on the strong side. Brandon Graham is solid but the measurements will keep him away from Parcells.
