    There's a team in charge of the event and they inquire about top prospects, they send invitations and as kids can accept/decline invitations, the list is somehow growing as draft day gets closer.
    By this time there are few guys still deciding.

    Manti Te'o declined, while Zach Ertz is undecided.

    Nobody want's to be in the green room without being selected.

    if the finz are BENT on drafting O-LINE, and they are trading up, FISHER is the only choice.

    i think he is better than joeckel and one of the best LT prospects in a long time. the guy is wicked fast off the ball and has a mean pop at the point. he has the ability to go down as one of the best pass blocking lt's to ever play the game.

    he is the ONLY tackle i would not get furious over if we got him.

    ANYONE WHO THINKS that AUSTIN is nothing but a slot receiver is TOTALLY misinformed and hasnt followed his college career. he can play the outside in the nfl. he is NO devon bess who isnt fast or quick enough for the outside. and jamming austin on the line is going to be almost impossible for big db's. his leap ability was OFF THE CHARTS at the combine and wont have a problem with big cb's down field.

    he will put gibson or bess on the bench right away. and as much as i love hartline, austin could bench him to.

    this is not TEDD GINN OR BESS or another of the long line of speed only, smaller players. not at all. and those who have watched him know this. his wr routes are exellent, big time hands and something ginn never had and was a BIG knock on him coming out and many people didnt like the pic that early because of THAT FACT!! he didnt have the game speed that he had on the track. john avery was another whos game lacked. he had wiggle room against college guys but didnt have the game or dicipline or speed for the nfl.

    all of these guys that people drag up from the past had GLARING issues that were red flag for the nfl and early draft choice. AUSTIN HAS NO problems or red flags other than people concentrating on his size. wow ! 3-4 tiny inches and he is 6'0 tall. 3 tiny inches!! and that going to change his game? no.

    the kid is strong as an ox, chisled, TRUE 4.3 speed. top notch wr from the slot or on the edge. just as good at the rb position. kick arse kr/p return man.


    and how is that not worth the #12?

    GM's miss on a lot of talent quiping over, or hanging on to archaic size and height requirements. when you have played your position for 3-4 years of big time college ball at a dominant level against big time competition, you have to go by the tape. and so many are so set in their ways about measurables, they lose the talent they so desperately NEED!!

    austin is this very player that is going to make many gm's and armchair gurus sick to their stomach that they didnt have the vision take him.

    hopefully that gm wont be IRELAND if austin is available at #12.

    Let's say you can claim Zach Ertz at the beginning of 2nd round and Gavin Escobar in the 3rd round. Both are better options for Philbin than Eifert.

    Second scenario. Miami trades up back into first round at spot number twenty-something and picks Eifert, after picking a fine OT trading up in the top 10 of the draft, bringing double exposure of the jersey that would be fine with both sport & business side of the event. This would require strong conviction abut Tyler Eifert as it would be expensive in draft picks.

    I love what I saw on Tavon Austin's tape. But you could argue the same on other WVU legend: Pat White.
    Pat's tape shows excellence, his WVU's records are outstanding and everything pointed he was going to be the next big thing at NFL.
    I was excited in 2009 when White arrived to Miami, but we know this doesn't worked well for him in his first attempt.
    The reason: undersized/slim for the pro-level.

    I don't argue that WO must be closer to or above 6' , that's the most common but surely not the only model.

    The issue is Tavon Austin can be very strong, but at the pro-level there are heavier and stronger LB & CB that will cut some of his NFL days.
    It's a shame but I don't expect him to last more than 3 seasons as starter on the league. You have to keep it in mind before using a high pick on him.
    Also most draft scouts and GM's assume he's molded to be a slot receiver because he won't beat none of top CB on the outside because they play using legal intimidation contact.
    At NCAA he avoided most of such contact, but at pro-level he won't have such luxury. In order to shine in the NFL, he must compete in the slot, trying to create a escape route.

    I'm a short guy and know about it.

    Yep, you can find a comparison by former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah of both QB at NFL.com.

    That double trade up would imply using both of our 2nd round picks and perhaps a 6th rounder in 2013 plus a 3rd rounder in 2014.
    That leaves a pair of starters plus 5-6 picks for the rest of this draft

    That's more than enough!

    Think about it.

    Dolphins fan-base has three important segments:
    A) Fans that use every potential source to be updated on the team. (Yeah, we're on that segment).
    B) Old-school fans that love the game and visit the stadium from time to time.
    C) Non-committed fans that buy team merchandise if the team is winning or at least in the news.

    Segments B & C surely will somehow follow the first day of draft.

    So draft-day is a very important windows to show the new image of the team and promote jerseys, caps, tickets, etc.

    Believe me they know about hype.
