    I wouldn't mind this. I like him for the pick. I also like Dee Milliner, Johnthan Banks, Tank Carridine and Alex Okafor. Or Manti Te'o were he to fall to the pick which it looks like he probably will.

    I like Dion Jordan but the only reason I can't endorse him yet is I have a tough time trying to figure out how exactly he fits in the defense that Miami runs. If he has to go in for a position switch that's an automatic ding to your draft stock.

    Kipper also has aaron Dobson as a late 1st rounder, watching more of him, I'm very intrigued by him.

    Trying to trade back is looking more and more like the best move.

    Keep in mind that Kiper is pretty tuned in to the scouts. His big board is tied more to what he's hearing from actual NFL evaluators than most other guys' boards. For example if he's got Aaron Dobson rated that high, he's got a scout or two buzzing in his ear telling him that, I can just about guarantee it.

    Goodness gracious does that kid have vision. He kinda freaks me out with the way he runs, and he's very raw, but...wow.

    Aaron Dobson was going to be my sleeper this year...guess not if he might go round one.

    I watched the first half of UT's season. I was not entirely convinced he knows that a receiver has hands to catch the football.

    I really want to say yeah i am cool with this pick, But he's just sooooo Raw, his route running is suspect at best, his hands from the games i have watched are not very reliable either.
    I kinda have the mentality for drafting wr's that you arent just going to make them learn to catch when they get to the NFL no matter how much you practice it's just one of the innate attributes some WR's have. I do believe he has the potential to be phenomenal however I would like us to go with someone a little safer. IMO At the same time if we get him I'm not going to complain

    I can't see philbin signing off on a wr who catches with his body.

    Jordy Nelson couldn't even get off the bench in gb for awhile because he wasn't catching the ball consistently. So I sure as heck can't see philbin wanting a guy who catches with his body. I think we can safely cross him off.

    The whole idea of a WR in the mid-1st is fraught with risk to begin with. Cordarrelle Patterson in the mid-1st probably even more so than normal. He's not for everyone. You have to be a believer.

    I happen to think that size/speed/agility stuff is a little bit of a safety net. Not a perfect one by any means. But when you combine it with the kind of pure play making he did in the SEC, along with his hands which I actually think are quite good in almost all situations...spice in his returns value...and actually he might be a relatively safe pick in the way that you know you're going to get SOMETHING out of him, which you can't usually say about any receiver you ever draft.

    Sometimes you've got to roll the dice if you want to get better at that position. Everyone's on this "big money free agent isn't the answer" kick. Well, if a big money free agent isn't the answer, and a guy like Cordarrelle Patterson isn't the answer, what the hell is the answer? The only other answer I can come up with is a total shotgun approach wherein we draft two or three guys all relatively high and see which ones pan out, and pray we've beaten the odds.

    I love Carradine and was hoping he would be Miami's pick in round 2. Do you really think he's a possibility at 12? I figured his late November ACL tear dropped him a round. I has him as a top 15 player pre-injury
