    Zach Thomas couldn't shed a block to save his life that's why we had Tim Bowens and Klingbeil types to keep him clean
    Or cover a tightend...

    Yah he struggled a lot but he could run sideline to sideline - I appreciated ZTs hustle, he wore down over the season and while Peyton Manning ahd huge respect for Zach's intelligence he was held back by his overall makeup, and BTW I don't see Borland as a starter, but he looks like he will fill a spot on someone's roster as a ST and back up ILB
    Pastor stands up in Church from the pulpit and asks the congregation if they know what the resurrection is about? Small child in a pew puts his hands up and would like to answer, pastor asks the child to answer, Boy says "If the resurrection persists over 4 hours you have to call a doctor"

    Yea..Don't get me wrong,..i loved zack when he was here....but at best he was the ultimate overachiever ...I want Zack's smarts and hustle in a prototype inside linebacker's body.

    I'd rather have Bullough in the 4th or 5th than Boreland in the 3rd or 4th. Really, I'd rather have Bullough either way.

    I figure this guy is pretty late pick. Like 5th - 7th range - too much skill in this draft to throw a selection away

    I'd take Borland in a heartbeat. Kid's a football player straight and simple. If some of u don't want him, that's fine, but i'll take him as our starting MLB.

    I'm with you Chubbs. The linebacker position is so much about instincts and Borland has that in spades, which means that he plays faster on the football field. That's where it counts. If it drops Borland to the 3rd round some team will get an absolute steal.

    I took him off my finmock. I think he will be picked up by someone else with more picks in third round.

    While instinctive and a nosebleeder (someone who will stick their nose into the crap), He is not bigger than Zach in other places. Zach had a big neck and more power. Boreland is lighter in the pants to me and since he is a bit slower, in the end, not all that impressive in any other facit of the game.

    This draft is important for Oline. If he is there in round 4 I take him. dont get me wrong, instincts are primal, and I think he would be better than others on our team, but there are better guys out there.

    I would take him in the 5th or later not earlier

    This new age of TEs is gonna expoze Borland (week to week) even more than ZT was exposed by Gonzalez and the Chiefs in yesteryear - Now every tea is implementing the stretch TE

    So going by you three meatheads "No Thanks"...I presume you would rather have the Zack's talent ,than Ray Lewis or a Patrick Willis...Who are you guys? Jeff Ireland?
    I'm asking you.."phish""JC""studsatele"...WTF?..drafting like, what you guys suggest is the reason we haven't won in ALONG time...
    Damn,some of you...well it's the reason the Dolphins are a laughing stock..good going guys.
