    He showed a lot more poise in the pocket than O'Connell and a lot more accuracy. O'Connell's one pass (he dropped back 2 other times but took off running...he panicked in the pocket) was about 2 yards behind the receiver on a crossing pattern.

    Devlin has way to much upside to not make the roster. Henne, Moore and Devlin will be our QBs for 2011.

    you never know...especially when its qbs...someone may have eyes for devlin...but no one liked him enough to use an actual pick on him with 250 kids getting drafted...and i think thats telling when it comes to would anyone poach him for their 53 right now at least given how limited nfl game reps exposure they can study

    if they do keep him though it won't bother me...god knows we could use a young developmental qb
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"

    Devlin had multiple choices, obviously perceiving the upside, when he signed with us. Teams that monitored his senior year included Pitts and NE. IMO, it's naive to think he'll be buried and forgotten secreted away on the PS. Hell at this point he's probably more attractive than Brady Quinn among others. We need to keep him on the roster or we'll lose him .

    Give me a break.

    Miami could run with 2 QB's at first, but I don't see them going without 3 for a while.

    I think there IDEAL practice squad would be:

    Devlin, Livas, Grigsby, Kearse, Brackett, Spears, Wilson and Kopa

    Obviously who knows who would pick up a Jimmy Wilson or a Pat Devlin after being waived . . . but ideally, I think this is their 8 guys if they didn't have to worry about them being plucked.

    Devlin is our #3, plain and simple, and would be even if he had a horrendous preseason. The lockout afforded barely enough time to get our starting QB enough time to learn the playbook, let alone a rookie who needs to learn the speed of the game, work with the coaching staff, and even learn his teammates' names. Obviously they love his potential, and that's really all you need to be a #3 QB in the NFL.

    The Miami Dolphins: Your home for QBs weeping in the fetal position since 1999.

    I dont understand everyones crush on devlin.... All hype for nothing at this point. So much hastle over a 3rd string qb who wasnt even drafted.
