A record eight teams, including Miami, do not have first round picks and will be strictly observers tonight, barring any trades back into round 1.
I like this guy....
I really really want them to draft QB Cole Kelley from SE Louisiana with a late rounder.
I'll take Zappe. What do you like about Kelley?
Big arm. Big kid. Very mobile for his size. Good touch at times. Tough. Seems like a hard worker. I want to do it for the potential upside for down the road.
I like Zappe. He is just a bit too small for my liking and I'm not sure how his game will translate to the NFL.
Something to watch today during the first round
Gonna be a wild night. Do you take the three year starter defensive end with like 2 sacks first overall!?!? Will the Panthers select a six year starting QB with 5in hands at #6? Will a Safety - A SAFETY - go in the top 5? Or maybe the CB who has quit on his team like 8 times in the past two years?!?!
What a draft!!
(I'm still glued to the TV though. Who doesn't love drama lol.)
Hahaha Stingley #3. Texans gonna Texan.
Arizona has acquired WR Hollywood Brown from the Ravens.
Looks like AZ gave up their first round pick.
AJ Brown is now an Eagle. Tonight is wild.
Eagles may be trading for AJ Brown.
If true, that's a move the Packers should absolutely have made.
Would've completely bombed their cap going forward with the players that the Packers still need to work out how to get paid. I mean the cap is a myth, but not that much of a myth.
I mean, they tried to pay Adams about as much as the Raiders did. And this is a team that has a 2 year window with Rogers. Eff the cap this year.
That said, they are also getting beaten to the punch on the elite WR talent in the draft. Teams like the Lions making big moves to draft the high end guys.
Out of all the teams to have an epic first round, wtf did it have to be the jets….
Hate to say it but the Jets are having themselves a night. Trade back into the first to stop Jermaine Johnson's slide.
3 top 10 graded players….wow and an early 2nd rounder.
Grades ultimately mean nothing. Why did Johnson slide like that, and maybe it was for a reason? Sauce is a good player, but will be interesting to see how long it takes him to lose the grabbiness - NFL refs will call that on him going up against the Hill's and Diggs' every time.
Ultimately, it's a pretty solid draft on paper, but paper isn't worth a whole lot.
Way too much hype placed on the NFL draft anymore. I mean, look at the draft just 5 years ago…
The number 1 pick Baker Mayfield who was heralded by ***MANY*** here at ThePhins is now out of a job.
Saquon Barkley is still ballin’ with the Giants and yet, the Giants are still a terrible team.
I could go on and on with each individual pick but of the top 10 picks just 5 years ago, only Allen has had sustained success that’s impacted the drafting team’s continued improvement and rising success.
Had Miami been drafting, I might’ve watched up to that point out of curiosity but I didn’t watch the draft nor do I care to watch the draft.
Oh, and for those citing the Jets having a phenomenal draft night, just remember…it’s the New York Jets. They’re always drafting high and they always suck.
I said it about a hundred times during the season this past season and all of the offseason last year - this would be the weakest draft in decades.. and yesterday everyone saw that reality.. it was a good draft to give up your assets for a sure fire star.
In 2 drafts, the Bengals landed one of the best young QB’s in the NFL and one of the top 3 WR’s in the NFL, catapulting them to the super bowl. That’s why people value the draft. It literally can change the entire trajectory of your organization in 2 good drafts.
It's a fair point, but Burrow is truly special as well. He'll eventually be the #1 QB in the league for a very long time.
Does your hatred for the jets run that deep lol? Do you remember last year saying that if the Jets draft either Etienne or Harris and we do not that it would be bad for us for years to come? But they are the Jets they suck it would not matter. Then your tantrum ensued after the last of the two were drafted and not by us….
The great thing is every team wins the draft in their eyes. We won the draft because we have the fastest WR duo in the league now. Jets won the first round of the draft because not only the dolphins but the entire afc magnified their holes at three positions that they filled with talent that was graded by the majority of the league “on paper” as top 10 picks….
you are right though, it takes more than drafting talent, it takes a staff and organization to develop them and my money is on Saleh as capable as any to develop blue chip defenders. How do you develop a young star Qb? Give them a young star WR and a coordinator from the Shannahan tree. The jets got better last night, the afc east got tougher, but I still like our chances to contend for the afc east title.
Hall to the jests... dammit!
Yeah, they're having a really good draft so far.
Malik Willis at 102?
Never mind. He’s a titan now.
A speedy LB? Seems like a McDaniel type pick. I was thinking they'd go best OT left, but another project player on the OL is not really what Miami needs right now.
Speed demon. He'll be a special teams ace, and good situational pass rusher. However, his read and react skills are horrendous, absolutely no vision or diagnostic skills, so don't expect much from him as a three down linebacker.
Caught this in a Herald article; several good nuggets-
Dolphins general manager Chris Grier mentioned the Dolphins have been targeting Tindall for weeks and like his speed, versatility, that he can play all three downs.
Grier said Georgia coach Kirby Smart said the “arrow is still going up on Channing.” He said the Dolphins inquired about moving up to take Tindall. But Miami didn’t want to give up any of its top 2023 draft inventory, which includes two first-rounders, a second round pick and two third-rounders.
Asked if the team will sit on its $20 million in cap space and carry it over to 2023, Grier said the team will continue to look, after the draft, for players who will help. So they’re not insistent on saving that space.
Isaiah Spiller is still out yhere
There goes the mountain, lol
Tua gets another weapon.
