    Who's horrible, Kouandjio? Maybe for trend followers who don't realize that his knee checks out fine. He dominated on an unbelieveable Alabama OL the last few years- devastating drive blocker who is good in pass pro and looks tailor made for RT in the NFL. Elite prospect coming out of high school elite player at Alabama at a severe need position for us. Don't believe the recent negative hype, I doubt that NFL front office execs are. Check out the drive blocking here at 2:00

    That's what we need. The recent superficial fad is that Koundjio isn't a 1st rd pick. I'm not into superficial fads, and I'm not buying it. Too much evidence to the contrary.

    Kouandjio is the likely pick...If I were picking I would take care of the o-line after round 1 if the top 4 are gone...but if they are sold on Kouandgio's health, its a good need pick.
    Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.

    Kouandjio didn't dominate squat last year. There's discussion his knee was a problem, or that he was giving up his own good positioning to assist his brother at guard. Either way it puts a question mark on him. At 19 if you aren't sure about a guy then you pass.

    I still think the team can still fill their offensive line needs in R2-R4. I see Kouandijio as a guard, where I think he will be very good. He is too slow IMO to play tackle. The Dolphins may have a shot an an elite talent at #19 or could trade down perhaps with a team like San Francisco and get more picks.

    Watch more tape. He was nearly a consensus All American last year, granted he had a better year in 2012. he gave up 1.5 sacks on something like 300 snaps last year before the bowl game, had a bad bowl game and now there's the typical overreaction. One of the best and most prominent orthopedic surgeons in the world says that his knee checks out fine, that's good enough for me. Dude is a much needed mauler in the running game and he'll be fine in pass pro at RT. DJ Fluker was the #11 pick last year and Kouandjio is the better player.

    I'm just not buying that. I'd have some questions as per quickness at LT but at RT he'll be fine.

    As a sidenote I was just thinking about Cordy Glenn who was taken 1 pick before Jonathan Martin in 2012, that would have solved our RT problem right there.

    Here's some film of Koundjio going against Virginia Tech, which I think gives a good lookk at him as a mauling run blocker and good pass protector. I like this clip because it lets me see not only Koundjio but antoher of my favorites, VT DE James Gayle #99. At 1:10 you can see him make a nice inside move from his LDE position and then he uses his speed, quicks and tracking ability to put good pressure on the QB. What I particularly like is his footwork, those quick feet while in pursuit of the QB remind me of Tank Carradine from FSU and now the 49ers

    My preference is still for Misi to suck it up and go to MLB, Dion Jordan to go where he belongs at OLB and draft James Gayle and put him right onto the DE rotation with Wake and Vernon. Also on the play before you can see a pretty interesting MLB Jack Tyler shoot up a middle gap and blow up a running play at 1:00. He might be one to watch in later rounds, as might be a MLB who I'm becoming a fan of, Preston Brown from Louisville.

    Mosely (beast mode) or Cooks (another Desean jackson) would be the pick in that mock.
    No way we are taking the 3rd or 4th best player at a position at #19. We are not that desperate and Hickey look for other oline options in round 2-4

    I don't know which is worse, the jests landing Ebron or us landing the 5th or 6th best OT with injury issues.
