    Dante Hall is much bigger than Austin. As are everyone else he gets compared to.

    At the end of the day you cant do **** without a good offensive line thats where it all starts so it makes perfect sense to get an OT in the first esp Johnson whos a freak and athletic as hell which is perfect for that zone blocking scheme obviously its not a pretty pick but if you cant protect the QB or establish the run everything is garbage period!!!

    The difference with Austin and the guys you mentioned is that he is tough and strong as hell and just a pure football player hes like a small Heinz Ward and for his size like heinz he can block great! none of those other guys can block and pound for pound arent nearly as tough or strong!

    I concur.
    Difference Makers dolphins should target in draft:
    Chance Warmack (OG) Alabama
    Ezekiel Ansah (DE) BYU
    Tyler Eifert (TE) ND
    Xavier Rhodes (CB) FSU
    Margus Hunt (DE)
    Ryan Swope (WR) Texas A&M
    Andre Ellington (RB) Clemson

    Go to 2:40...he's so light, he can't take a chest bump from his teammate, lol http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3_UNFZHSQU

    Seriously, though, I like Austin a lot, but I believe his durability at 175 lbs is a question mark, and limited upside due to his small size. I'd rather take a guy at 12 overall whose size/speed combo is an upside, not a downside.

    Austin is listed at 176 lbs. Harvin at 184, Hall at 187 according to NFL.Com. Not that much of a difference considering he can add some weight. Tony Martin was a stick and had a pretty good career as a WR.

    I do feel what you're sayin though. I'd like my star players to have elite size as well.
