    Just for a point of reference, this is the last 3 years for the Jets. I'm not going to include players traded for using picks, etc etc. It's a simple (who did they draft) comparison:

    2008 - Vernon Gholston (1st round) - BEST PLAYER EVER! (bust) (stats: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/player...playerId=11240)
    2008 - Dustin Keller (trade-up) (1st round) - Jets gave up 2nd and 4th round for this pick. Has played pretty well. (stats: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/player...playerId=11264)
    2008 - Dwight Lowery (4th round) - Still on the team, but about what you would expect from a 4th rounder. 5 career picks. Backup to Cromartie (stats: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/player...playerId=11347)
    2008 - Erik Ainge (5th round) - Not even worth looking up.
    2008 - Marcus Henry (5th round) - I don't even think he has recorded an NFL catch.
    2008 - Nate Garner (7th round) - I think we know about him...

    2009 - Mark Sanchez (trade-up) (1st round) - We know about Sanchez. Traded for 1st and 2nd and three players. I'd argue Sanchez hasn't lived up to his draft ranking so far. (stats: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/player...playerId=12482)
    2009 - Shonn Greene (3rd round) - He plays, but hasn't lit it up at all.
    2009 - Matt Slauson (6th round) - Starting guard.

    2010 - Kyle Wilson (1st round) - Special Teams for the most part. 3rd string CB.
    2010 - Vladimir Ducasse (2nd round) - Backup to Slauson
    2010 - Joe McKnight (4th round) - 3rd string
    2010 - John Conner (5th round) - Backup FB.

    Now that we have some perspective, outside of the horrible Pat White choice (and maybe 2 others) ... have the Dolphins really done THAT bad?

    I got ripped when I said before that their picks are "average at best." Now that the bloom is off the rose for this FO...it is obvious that they are nothing special and may have pretty much blown the most important pick for the Dolphins ever...

    You can tell what side ur on just by reading ur post. Can someone post a open minded look at out drafts along with the hit and misses by teams who drafted around us. Also chris clemons is a legit fs something we have not had in awhile.

    5 star players - Jake Long
    4 star players - Vontae Davis, Dan Carpenter, Davone Bess and Kendall Langford
    3 star players - Sean Smith, Chris Clemons, Koa Misi and Brian Hartline

    Busts - Patrick Turner, Pat White, and Shawn Murphy

    That is pretty solid in my book, I mean whatever about Bess and Carpenter not being drafted...at least they brought them here as UDFA. I wish we had hit on better in the second round, but we have drafted solid.
    Welcome to the Miami Dolphins

    Vontae Davis, CB, Illinois
    Pat White, QB/WR, West Virginia
    Sean Smith, CB, Utah
    Patrick Turner, WR, SOuthern California
    Brian Hartline, WR, Ohio State
    John Nalbone, TE, Monmouth
    Chris Clemons, S, Clemson
    Andrew Gardner, OT, Georgia Tech
    J.D. Folsom, LB, Weber St.

    why not include Bess and Carpenter? they were both signed hours after the draft based on the same scouting reports as the draft itself. there are many talented players that don't get drafted and credit should go the front office for finding them. where would we be without Bess and Carpenter?

    Wow... did all you guys start watching football in 2008?

    How any fan of the Miami Dolphins (with their previous draft history) can sit and complain about the last three drafts is totally beyond me. I'm trying to make allowances for hurt feelings, and "heat of the moment" critics.... but just wow.

    You can not say that their drafting is good just because the previous people did even worse. These guys are average...the previous people sucked...
