    Always a possibility that I haven't discounted, but when I make my own mental predictions (for myself) I only worry about which guys are the best of the 53 we have out there. 3rd QB, TE and OL are the areas that I wouldn't be surprised if we brought someone else in, strangely enough I think we're pretty good in the other areas.

    With Devlin only opportunity this game he leads the dolphins on a long drive
    Devlin faced some serious pressure and avoided a would be sack for a completion
    then Devlin looked accurate hitting levis in stride on a 4th and 5 to continue the drive
    they did not let Devlin throw with the 4 opportunities on goal line as they were worried he would show too much so they ran it...

    What i think happened here is the dolphins didnt want him too do too much but i think he did and will be picked up if we cut for practice squad..

    Not exactly salivate though some team might put him on a final 53
    seeing enough in him to make him 3rd option or a #2

    Lets remember the Front office
    kept wake a backup for a year
    when he was the best pass rusher in the NFL
    and the best player on the dolphins squad
    so they are a little slow to judge talent..

    just saying no team drafted him and he has shown very little in preseason or practice. not saying he is bad .
    also am i misreading u because at that point or even now u cant really say w3ake is the best pass rusher in the nfl.
    he may very well be this year. i am saying that unless the dolphins keep devlin he has little chance to be anything but practice squad for this year.
    now if he had did more in preseason, u could be right but why not keep a guy .bthat knows your system to develop. at this point its doubful that teams have any reason to pick updevlin

    My prediction: Devlin will probably be #2 quarterback by the time the season is over. He will be competing for starting QB next year, unless Henne does great this year. He will eventually be our starter (or someone elses if we're not smart) and be our best quarterback since Penington. You heard it here.

    He had 7 other offers to join teams when the draft was over. I'm pretty sure he'll get picked up...it's exactly how we got Lydon Murtha who Sparano liked in the draft and when he was cut Sparano jumped on him. As bas as Kellen Clemens has been in Washington and some of the other 3rd string QBs around the league he would be a prime candidate for someone to pick up.
