    Dolphins Bring in 20 Draft Eligible Guys

    "The Dolphins had more than a dozen players from local colleges or who grew up in South Florida visit the team Tuesday. Among the group was a large number of University of Miami players, including wide receiver Jason Geathers and offensive lineman Carlos Joseph. The most prominent players were defensive end Bobby McCray of Florida and defensive tackle Matthias Askew of Michigan State. Both are projected as mid-round draft picks.

    Arkansas tackle Shawn Andrews, who is expected to be the second tackle taken in the draft, was among 20 draft-eligible players who visited Wednesday and Thursday. Aside from Andrews, Miami guard Vernon Carey, Purdue safety Stu Schweigert and safety Arnold Parker of Utah also visited."

    What do you think of some of these guys Boomer?

    Askew seems like a guy with the tools and athletic ability, but is he a football player? Same with Arnold Parker from Utah. Both could be available in round three. As for Schweigert, he seems to be the total package - big, fast and seemingly excellent instincts. However I cant see him falling to the third round.

    Finally, interesting that the Phins brought in both Andrews AND Carey, imo the two most likely guys to be taken at #20. Could this be the year that the FO doesnt surprise us on draft day?

    Askew and Andrews are very interesting. Schweigert has drawn a lot of interest from us at the Senior Bowl and the Combine, but he'll go in 2. The concern about him is that he looks to have some problems with alcohol. He also is a very poor tackler and isn't great when the balls in the air. Joseph has some talent, McCray is raw but could be very good when he gets more consistent - looks a 2nd/3rd rounder. Parker is an athlete playing safety - sounds like yet another potential conversion job. Geathers has some talent at WR and TB. I'd love to know who the other guys were that we brought in.

    Speilman is less likely to pull a surprise. I'd have to think that Andrews and Smiley and Carey are the 3 OL that they are keenest on.

    We need to know the identities of the other guys. Quite often the guy that we draft first doesn't come in on these days - we have done most our work at the Senior Bowl and Combine.

    Parker is a good coverage FS, formerly a CB. He should be around in the 4th. I wouldn't mind him then if we haven't already filled our FS need earlier.

    Some background on the guys we brought in:

    taken from NFLFans.com

    Arnold Parker, SS, Utah

    HEIGHT: 6'2"
    WEIGHT: 215
    40 TIME: 4.45
    225# REPS:19
    VERTICAL:36.0

    Projected Selection: Round4

    Parker is a natural at SS but has been playing out of position at Utah the last two years. Looked great as a sophomore but their lack of talent on the corner forced them to move him. has struggled a bit at since. Big sized, big hitting safety prospect loaded with athletic ability potential and all the raw tools to excel at Safety in the NFL

    Pros: Dynamite package of size and speed. Very solid tackler, knows how to hit and wrap up. Has good awareness in zone coverage and knows where he should be.

    Cons: Seemed lost at times at cornerback; raw and lacks the natural fluidity and hip turn to play corner in the NFL. loses the ball while trying to adjust in man coverage.

    Stuart Schweigert, FS, Purdue

    Projected Selection: Round2

    Pros: This guy could possibly have a career that emulates Rod Woodson's. He does have all the tools, can use a little more strength, but shows great speed, size, athleticism. He's a team leader and has the motor you want.

    Cons: Has had a few scrapes with the law in regards to public intoxication. Maybe just a college thing. Sustained some injuries in his last two years at Purdue that slowed him down just a tad, but nothing serious.
    Draft Exchange Analysis:

    Pro Day Update :

    HEIGHT:6.2
    WEIGHT:215
    225# REPS:19
    40 AVERAGE:4.44
    VERTICAL:38.5
    LONG JUMP:9'6"

    Schweigert is the man that gave Charles Rogers fits in high school and later in the Big 10. He converted from wide receiver in high school to free safety in his freshman year at Purdue. Schweigert took no time learning the position, leading the team in tackles his first two years.

    In his four years at Purdue he has broken NFL Hall of Fame Rod Woodson's Purdue career interception record. Expect to see Schweigert become a mid second round selection and a blue chip DB for many years to come.
