    Fins Draft...Interesting picks

    Pretend for a second that the Fins do not trade their 9th pick and at the time of the draft, they have not signed any FAs. Lets say for arguments sake, G. Adams, J. Anderson, Branch, Russel, Quinn, Thomas, Johnson, and Peterson are all off the board. Who would you like the Fins to draft with their 1st overall pick?

    My selections:
    Patrick Willis- Best LB in the draft. Not great at one thing but good at everything. Many will say he is a reach.
    Levi Brown- Most scouts will say he is the 2nd best OT in the draft. Most will also say he is a reach. Fills arguably the biggest need for the Fins.
    Dwayne Bowe- Best Senior WR by far. Wowed scouts in Senior Bowl practices. Everyone will say he is a reach. Reminds many, including myself of Anquin Boldin and could potentially be a great #1 reciever in the NFL.
    Darrelle Revis- The CB position is a huge need for the Fins as the Fins secondary was exposed in many games this past season. According to scouts, there is no front runner. I personally don't know his coverage skiils and am basing this pick from my readings and the fact that we desperately need a shutdown corner.
    Leon Hall- Same as above.

    From what I have read on this site, other Fin fan selections...
    Laron Landry- The Fins secondary was exposed and I could understand why many people believe we should take a huge talent like Landry. My objection to this pick would be that we just drafted a safety. Also IMO, the safety position is not the best position to draft in the 1st round. Also, it took J. Allen basically a whole season to learn Caper's schemes so Landry might not make much of an impact in his 1st season. Despite those objections, he, unlike the other picks, could essentially not be much of a reach.
    Amobi Okoye- Scouts love this guy. He's a major talent.Simply put however, I do not believe he fits Caper's defensive schemes. Could or could not be a reach, more to come after Senior Bowl/Combine.
    Dwayne Jarrett- The Fins could definitely use a playmaker on offense and this guy is a great reciever, no denying that. Scouts will say he doesn't have the speed and doesn't get good seperation. When I see him play, I think Keyshawn Johnson.
    Ted Ginn, Jr.- This guy would definitely add a playmaker. He is extremely fast and agile. He may be nothing more than a slot reciever/return specialist in the NFL and with that idea, may be a major reach. Side note, my own personal comparisons, Johnnie Lee Higgins.
    Reggie Nelson- Similar comments to Laron Landry.

    With all that said, who do you believe the Fins should draft with their 1st overall pick? Please explain your thoughts, because personally I am completely uncertain as to who would be the best pick.

    Ted Ginn. Before i make my arguement for him, let me say this. The dolphins draft is probably the hardest draft to predict in the league. At #9, we could go in several directions. If Levi Brown proves he's worth the #9 pick, we take him because hes a good player and he'd fill a needed position. Theres really no telling where miami goes with its first pick, because we have an all new coaching staff, a 'new' GM, and several holes to fill.

    Why i picked Ginn. As already stated, hes a playmaker. He can score from anywhere on the field, at almost any position. Cam Cameron may want ginn because Ginn would give him something he's never had in SD. A top flight recieving core. Ginn can run the end arounds, the fly routes, return kicks, catch screens...you know you can just do a lot with this guy. he's like the reggie bush of this draft. he may not be able to play his 'spot' on offense better then anyone else in the league, becauses hes a short receiver. Much like Bush can never be a #1 back for a team because hes too small. but if used right, like Bush is in New Orleans, then he can be a game changer.

    I personally would be extremely happy with Willis(who most likely won't make it to us at #9) or Brown in the 1st....

    I respect your choice of Ginn but IMO there are always a bunch of Ginn-like recievers in drafts. The type of reciever who would never be a #1 reciever but are fast as lightning, can return kicks, and really be a threat everytime they touches the ball. He doesn't have the best hands and doesn't run the best routes. That is why I suggested grabbing Higgins in later rounds bc he reminds me of Ginn and some have even said Higgins is better, just played for a smaller school. Higgins could be an under-the-rader type guy

    You think Willis will get picked by one of the teams BEFORE the Fins pick? Highly unlikely.

    Believe it or not, I've heard from somewhere that Willis looked like a 2nd rounder not a first rounder after the senior bowl. I will have to check my sources, but I did hear that.

    Ya I read that too. I believe it was Mel Kiper who said that. He also said that Paul Posluzny (sp?) will be taken in the 3rd round. I dont know how the guy has done in the past, but this year Kiper is making some bold and IMO idoitic statements.
    Patrick Willis is the best LB in the draft. I think its hard to argue against that.

    I want Ginn,He brings two elements to this game that this franchise has never,i mean never had before,

    A player with the speed and skill that can score on a 5 yard hitch route,a player that can line up anywhere on the field with a creative cordinator calling the shots.

    Two,an explosive punt and kick returner that will create advantages for our team

    Take a look at Higgins. Another exciting playmaker who sometimes plays too fast as one scout said about him during senior bowl practices lol
