    Arrelious Benn WR, drafted 2010 taken in the 2nd round 1 pick before Koa Misi, guy in his 3rd season, only active for 8 games, with an amazing 4 catches for 26 yards

    Taylor Price WR drafted 2010 3rd round taken by genious Bill Belicheck, active for 1 game, 3 catches 41 yards in 2010, in 2011, 3 games active with the Patriots 0 catches, then traded to the Jaguars, and active for 2 games with 2 catches, 2012 not a single game active..........

    Mardy Gilyard WR drafted 2010, 1st pick of the 4th round, 2010 6 games active, 6 catches for 63 yards, all of 2011 inactive, aquired by the Eagles for 6 games with 0 catches, aquired by the Jets, 2 games active with 2 catches for 16 yards

    every single draft is littered with players like this, some drafted by the most respected best GMs in the NFL

    If you are going to list QBs, positions that do get sat more often than any other, at least pick qbs that sat ehind BAD starters...
    OK, Carson Palmer sat for a year behind Jon Kitna.

If not, well, then he was a bust...but he won't be the first 3rd round bust and he won't be the last. Generally speaking about 30% of drafted players make a career out of the NFL the rest are pretty much gone within 5 years.
    And yet Finheaven still believes thats a better chance of acquiring talent via draft than signing a big name free agent or heaven forbid we trade a 2nd rounder for a talented player, finheaven flips **** when the thought of giving up these priceless 2nd and 3rd round picks. Even though we havent drafted a player worth a damn in the 2nd or 3rd round in forever, I think we miss like 90% of the time and they are gone within 5 years. But lets keep doing what we've been doing, drafting the pat white's and Daniel thomas in the 2nd round. Been working great for years, and yet Finheaven will refuse to give up a freaking 2nd round pick for a pro bowl player

    See? This guy gets it! I bet he and I are the only two people in the world that believe the Washington Redskins have won that last 10 SB's.

    You must have not been a Dolphins fan in the last few years of Shula's career or all through the Wannstedt years. They both tried that and it failed. What you end up doing is over paying for talent, getting old quickly and lacking depth because of the over paid talent...the bottom of the roster suffers cause you have to get cheap, non contributing players to fill out the roster.

    Teams like the Packers and Atlanta are well above the 30% average with draft picks. Teams like Jacksonville are well below the 30% average. You can judge the results for yourself.

    In all fairness to Shula, the Phins needed O-line help at the time. Shula tried to duplicate the success he had in the 1990 draft with Richmond Webb and Keith Sims. He tried to find a RT and RG in rds 1 and 2.
    Shula was targeting Kory Stringer (RIP), but he was taken by the Vikings a few picks earlier. He settled for Milner out of Houston based on the strong recommendation of Kim Helton (Houston HC) who previously had worked under Shula as an O-line coach.
    He obviously got some bad advice. Milner was soft and unathletic (bad combo for a T).
    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

He plays the Welker role except Welker turns a 5 yard slant into a 25 yard play.
    I was thinking the exact same thing when I was watching that video.

    We have a guy like that on the roster already and his name is Paul Soliai. Everyone thought he was a bust after his first few years and he really turned it on in 2010 and has become a big part of our D.
