    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.
    3rd round talent...you said it

    Exactly. Not to mention every other team in the league passing on him repeatedly

    Swope should have went instead of Will Davis in the 3rd, thats a bad pick by all accounts. yes Keenan Allen didnt fall but there were worthy WRs

    Mike Sherman knows him better than anyone and we still passed, I'm willing to trust their judgement over a few fans.

    Dude this isnt about who knows more the FO or a fan, its about, let's talk about the PK and why you think it was a better pick then a WR with upside potential

    Yes, Carpenter needed to go...no issue with that. But using a 5th? Really? You get kickers as UDFA or 7ths...not a 5th with decent players available.

    I was never super high on Swope , its the board that got me looking at him, so I mentioned this after reviewing what happened in today's round and saw he was taken early 6th and we picked very late 5th
