    Some other news and notes in the buzz from OTAs as well.

    In light of some of the players we've acquired this off season, I hope we have a great medical staff.

    Looking back now, I feel like we were drafted guys right off the operating take. Geesh, is everybody gonna show up with an ailment now?

    Atleast Grimes looks great in OTAs so far. Patterson May last longer than I originally thought even with his high contract.

    The original quote by Barry Jackson said he had dealt with the injury for a while? My question is For how long. Pre combine? Pre draft? Did we take 3 of 4 off our 1st picks were coming off injuries.

    Most sports hernia's are hard to diagnose and a very high percentage of athletes will get one at one time or another. Most good Dr's will try physical therapy before any surgery. The good thing is that this surgery has a very high success rate in regards to stopping any pain.

    Well away from here
    Just to point out there is a sports hernia that is very tricky to diagnose and not every doctor can do it, its just that simple. I had 3 hernias by the time I was 5 years old (mine were easy to see though) but I can tell you sometimes you have one and you really don't know it. You may have to alter your routine but at the same time you can still do many things.

    At the same time it can be fixed, but also sometimes it just keeps coming back. Ask John Offerdahl.

    I remember talking about this leading up to and right after the draft with this kid, but at that time he felt he could treat it medically and not have surgery. Guess that didn't work out...at any rate now is the time for him to have this done....

    Wonder if this is one of the reasons he slipped in the draft. As long as he gets healthy we could have gotten a steal due to those kidneys and that hernia.

    No doubt. Our first 3 draft picks are all coming off surgeries.

    Not ultimately a big deal.

    Normally wouldn't bother me at all but seeing what happened to young guys that started off slow like Rishard Matthews, Lamar Miller and Michael Egnew...it does give me pause. Whenever Mike Sherman was asked about Egnew not playing a big part he said that it was because he fell behind very early in the process and when that happens it becomes really difficult to catch up. Took guys like Lamar Miller and Rishard Matthews quite a while before they caught up and were trusted to play more.

    If you want a lot of participation from a rookie then I think you're rooting for these guys to be full participants as early as possible including OTAs. If you were hoping to see a lot of Jamar Taylor at corner this year then I do think this is a setback. But it's nothing in the longer term.

    Personally I've been of the belief that Taylor would be a slow learner anyway and that Will Davis would jump ahead of him in the rotations. So this doesn't really affect my expectations.

    That's not a good way to start out being Ray Lewis' replacement. But they're going to play Brown a lot no matter what. The Dolphins have a choice whether to play Taylor a lot or not a lot because they still have Grimes, Marshall, Patterson (for now), Carroll and Will Davis.

    I know. Great fit for him if he can learn the playbook in time. Even if he ultimately ends up a WR/TE prospect at the next level, he's better off being the QB at NC State this year than making another late move to WR for Arkansas this year like he did last year. The #3 receiving option in a Wisconsin-style offense is going to get what maybe 20 catches? That's maybe 10 or 12 quality film opportunities he'd get to see what he can do with the football in his hands. At NC State playing QB under the same coaches that coached Chandler Harnish and Jordan Lynch, he'll get more on the order of 500 to 600 opportunities on film to show what he can do with the football in his hands. Maybe even more. Harnish and Lynch averaged about 630 touches in 2011 & 2012. That'll be 600 chances for Mitchell to show how he moves, how elusive he is, how aware of the field he is, how quickly he makes decisions with bullets firing at him, how physically strong and powerful he is when contacted, etc.

    And then of course there's the potential he would have to actually do something interesting as a quarterback that perks the ears of evaluators that are becoming more and more hungry for dual threats at the position. Cam Newton, Colin Kaepernick, Robert Griffin and Russell Wilson are setting a new bar. Even Miami plans on getting into the swing of things with Ryan Tannehill running more option. Alex Smith will be running the pistol at Kansas City. If Jake Locker ever pans out he'll be a guy that damages as much with his feet as his arm. Christian Ponder has that potential as well. Andrew Luck had like 300 rushing yards and 5 TDs as a rookie. Aaron Rodgers has been hurting teams with his legs for years. Now we have E.J. Manuel and Geno Smith. Teams are hungry for this. If guys like B.J. Daniels, Tyrod Taylor, Josh Johnson, Tyler Thigpen, Dennis Dixon and Joe Webb can get looks at the position, there's no reason Brandon Mitchell can't.

    When I watch Mitchell I see a gifted physical specimen athletically, a well muscled 6'4" and 239 lbs guy (that weight was recently verified by Brandon himself on a phone interview) with speed in the 4.5's. I also see a guy with a good throwing motion and decent mechanics who can throw the football a country mile. His accuracy isn't scattershot by any means. I think he's got much better accuracy than Daniels did. Refinements like ball placement still escape him but that doesn't mean the accuracy is bad. His timing and execution are surprisingly good. He just has to cut down on the brain fart decision making he does at times. I don't necessarily expect him to take the NCAA by storm the way Cam Newton did...but it's not TOTALLY out of the question, either. Or at least, it's no more out of the question than it was when Newton was just transferring from Blinn to Auburn and nobody saw him coming.
