    I don't think anyone's mock draft (excluding Jake Long) had it turning out this way.

    Over the last 15 years or so I've been pretty draft savvy. I've kept track of a lot a statistical minutia on players from obscure schools. I've watched players' mechanics: how their hips turn out of the break, arm slot on passes, arm extension and footwork on blocks etc. But this is the first time in recent memory that I can say I really have no idea who most of these players are after round 3. I'm not saying just because I don't know who the hell some of these guys are they won't pan out. I'm just saying, I sincerely hope that the Dolphins scouting department really, really did their due diligence on these players. I can't speak for everyone, but I think we passed on quite a few players that could have contributed right away. Well, here's to hoping I'm wrong and that we found some gems (especially since we completely ignored WR, CB & S)

    because we continuously filled a spot that we dont need...BP is going to push the current players we have now without filling the Skill positions

    i agree with you.. what i think it is with all teams sometimes is that: teams dont expect certain players to fall that far, and when it comes to the pick, they have heavily scouted other players and fell in love with others, so higher rated picks fall.. thats when we start seeing names we dont know

    Kudos to you. You're probably one of the very, very few that had anything correct after round 1.
