correction... 84 players went between the 2 picks you had to take the best kicker in the draft in the 5th because he would not have lasted 84 more picks
If it was up to finheaven fans we would have reached for a 6th round value of swopes in the 3rd round and most people would have been happy.
It is odd that I got this name in 2004 and it is still relevant to this day. Prove me wrong TS!
Damn, how many times was it you say that Belikcheat could have taken Wes Welker's heir apparent (and didn't either?) I lost count. Maybe no room on their sidelines to set up a Triage, ya think?
If Swope ddint play wirh Tannehill and had a great year with him, I wouldnt of been interested, it looked as if their was chemistry and comfortable-ness playing together!

Are their any Dolphans who can just make a case instead of being an ignorant smart azz jack???????
I seriously don't understand all the man crush love for Ryan Swope on this board. He's a nice player, but, even without the concussion issues that pushed him down the draft board, he was never an elite prospect. He was a 3rd round type of talent, according to most pundits.
People need to get over the fact that the Dolphins didn't want to draft him and stop acting as though they missed out on a sure fire pro bowl player. The kid was drafted in the 6th round, which shows that most teams agreed with the Dolphins analysis.
The guy ran like a 4.35...you always have to be interested in that!
But I guess we needed a ****ing kicker more!!!
