    I think you can get Bailey along with King, but I think King will end up a better pro

    I really like Tavarres King, I have him going in the 3rd round.

    I was listening to the radio a few days ago and heard Channing Crowder in the context of teams passing on drafting Russell Wilson that the Dolphin's approach is to draft a "safe" good player instead of taking a risk on a player who is outside of the prototype but who has the potential to be great. He said that this draft philosophy is a contributing factor as to why the Dolphin remain mediocre. So, what's the benefit of restricting ourselves to "safe" draft picks that are only within the prototype? We need great wide receivers, not good ones.

    Yea but I don't even think he's just a safe pick, I think he does have the opportunity to be great. He had a helluva career with Georgia, was highly touted out of high school as well. Only reason I brought up Philbin's prototypical reciever type is because it makes the pick make even more sense for us.

    Not to mention Ryan Tannehill and Lamar Miller picks want to talk to you about "safe"

    I'm not entirely familiar with the kid so I won't try to discuss whether he's good or great. I just want the Dolphins to stop settling for safe mediocrity and take a few chances to get better.

    With regards to RT, I would venture to say that the Dolphins would not have drafted him if he had been the same size as Russel Wilson.

    Living in Athens GA and meeting some of his family, I followed King closely up until this year when I moved away. Unless he really changed this year, I don't see him having the strength to be an NFL WR. He also does not go after the ball. I think he will get eaten alive by NFL DB's. He has some speed but that is about it. I would look elsewhere.

    Pat White was very outside the prototype. Just 'cause he didn't pan out doesn't mean the risk wasn't taken.
