Doesn't look like Amobi is the pick

A lot of the mock drafts that definitely beg mocking have slated Louisville manchild defensive tackle Amobi Okoye as Miami's pick if the Dolphins can't trade out of the No. 9 spot.

He very well may be there when Miami is picking and his potential is much greater than, say, Levi Brown, the offensive tackle from Penn State that will also be available. But I just don't see Okoye as a Dolphins priority for several reasons.

First of all, Okoye is a smallish defensive tackle. He is perfect for a 4-3 system where he would be a young Warren Sapp-type addition. The problem is the Dolphins don't run a 4-3 system and their critical factors for that position call for more of a nose tackle type of player.

Secondly, I'm told the Dolphins talked to Okoye at the combine, but he didn't visit the team's facility and neither Randy Mueller nor Cam Cameron were present at his personal workouts. That tells me Okoye is on the radar, but he's not the target of Miami's focus.

Finally, it should be remembered that Atlanta picks at No. 8 now. The Falcons want to improve their pass rush. The Falcons are coached by Bobby Petrino. Who did Petrino coach at Louisville?

Amobi Okoye.

But it says here even if Petrino passes and Okoye is there, the Dolphins don't take him.

Your thoughts?

I don't think they'll be going in that direction either. We have a few young prospects at the position and Holiday just signed a 4 year contract.

There are 9 players of which I think we will choose from. Russell, Thomas, Peterson, Johnson, and Adams will all definitely be gone. That leaves Quinn, Landry, Brown, and Willis. I think we'll pick whoever is left out of those 4 and I won't really complain about it.

Mel Kiper is an idiot. We have young talent at DT if they're healthy. I say the Phins should and in this order:

1) Trade up to 6 if Quinn slips passed Cleveland

2) Trade back to 16 with GB if Peterson is still on the board and draft Ginn Jr.

3) If both Quinn and Peterson are gone, draft Levi Brown alla the 21st century Richmond Webb

4) If all of the above are gone, then draft either Landry (although he probably wont be there), Ginn, Hall, or Okoye

Yes, Kiper is a fool. If he's a draft expert he should remember that the Dolphins drafted Rodrique Wright last year who was a 1st round talent who had to go on IR. Plus we have Manny wright.
Why in the world would be draft ANOTHER young, immature DT?

I agree with you and assuming that the 2 best OTs and QBs are gone at #9(and we dont move up), I would love to see Miami pick up this RB. Read my "Is Ronnie brown is a Bust?" article at my below blog, about 3 articles down.

http://thedolphininsider.blogspot.com/

I do not for one second think Brown is a bust, but I do think you need two quality RBs on your roster to be a hi caliber playof team in the NFL these days

The White elephant of the Miami Dolphin ssquad is QB, and in my opinion they should do everything possible to grab at least Quinn this year and maybe a sleeper QB in round 6 again.

We will never be a hi caliber playoff team without a franchise QB

If LT Brown or S Landry aren't available, trade down and get one more first day pick yet not miss a beat. At 15 to 20 MLB Willis might be there. Zack's got a lot of miles; Fins need a young tackling machine. Good thing about having so many holes; they can take the best available player regardless of position. And please draft Antwan Barnes; he'll come cheaper and play better than Jon Beason.

Miami should trade up to #6 and select Quinn , if Cleveland passes on him and selects Peterson. It would cost Miami a 3rd rounder but it will be worth it. If Cleveland selects Quinn, Miami should stay put and select Levi Brown at #9. If Brown is gone, look to trade down in the teens and select Ginn. In the 2nd round Miami can address their quarterback situation from Edwards (Stanford), Bock (BYU), or Stanton (Mich. St). Kiper is an idiot - he projects Greg Olsen going to SF at #11. SF drafted another TE (Vernon Davis) at #6. It is a shame he has the job he has.

i say we should get leon hall,brady quinn, or levi brown. we need some more secondary help and i think hall could fill that void. but, we all know you need a franchise Q.B. and brady could fill that as well. but levi brown would be a great fit especialy with a great O-Line coach in hudson houk whoo could groom him into a great LT. here is what i would do:

1) leon hall

2) levi brown

3) brady quinn

4) DO NOT TRADE DOWN

Someone really needs to spread a Quinn rumor like the Marino rumors of '83. There is no guarantee that he is going to be good or great. I really like his tenacity, desire, clock management, and he has proven he can bring a team back in the 4th qtr.

WHOA! WHOA! WHOA! Hold on just a minute folks! Trade up to get Quinn or trade down to get Ginn Jr?! Am I the only one to see Quinn fail miserably against top 25 defenses? Who cares if Weiss was is coach at ND! And the team was talented enough for everyone to keep ranking them high even as he wilted. As for Ginn Jr., other than speed, what does he bring to the table. His hands are mediocre at best. I would much rather have his buddy Gonzales instead!
The player I would like to see picked at the 9th pick would be Olsen as he would be the best talent at that pick. Since Cam went out and got a TE, that's not as big of a need. I think, if they trade up (and it doesn't cost too many picks) get Thomas. The best option would be to trade down, to add a pick or two and select a safety or corner if none of the top tier players are available.

Kiper doesn't have SF taking Olsen at 11, he has Olsen at #11 in his rankings. For those who don't read very well, that's a big difference.

The last thing this team needed was ANOTHER defensive tackle. Amobi is a good kid, and he'll be successful in the pro's, but he's more of a "Tampa 2" guy than a "3-4" guy.

I think we should get Quinn but I also believe Randy Mueller is a great evaluator of talent. Saban was terrible. He will make the right moves just like he robbed us with the ricky williams trade. Who knows maybe he can fit a fourth draft pick on the board for Ricky! Go phins!

ok this is what i just heard from ESPN...if we get Green this week and release culpepper...that would most likely mean that Oakland would sign culpepper and draft calvin johnson...then the fins would trade for a higher pick (probably #6)...and draft quinn...who would look great in a fins uniform...i am in totaly favor for this to happen...we need a born and raised QB i am sick of getting someone elses problem...

the only way our team is going to get better is through the draft. as long as we do not have another bust draft i will be happy. our offensive schemes the past five years or so have really hurt our identity. hopefully all 10 picks will contribute instaed of players who will be bagging groceries in a year.

I can believe how many mock drafts have the Phins taking Okoye with the #9. Sorry, I don't think so.
If Levi is there take him. Next choice would be Willis.
2nd round, take Stanton or Edwards.
3rd round, take a speed returner/receiver.
4th round- Zak Deossie: Special teams maven and long Snapper. Son of former NFL player Steve Deossie. Could be the sleper pick of day 1. You read it here first!!!!

What has hurt the fins the most the last 8 years? Not having a QB and not being able to protect whoever was pretender to the throne.You have to take Brown at 9 if he is there. 1st pick of the 2nd should be Kevin Kolb (QB) from Houston. All this guy did was win and win games he had no business winning. Later in the 2nd take a guard - Ben Grubbs from Aubun if he is there.

Only if we can get a 2nd rounder from greenbay do we trade down..if not levi brown or quinn if he falls...we must think offense first and good wr are still available in 2ndround along wit good qb's .if de-fense was adressed then you gotta go secondary..landry or hall not another beast in the box...we got the beasts already kiper !

Listen, Cameron and Mueller are smart guys. They know that our offense is SCREAMING for help. I'm also sure they're not sitting around saying, "It's okay if we don't win this year. We can make a playoff run next year." They want to win NOW. There is nothing in me that says they will waste the #9 pick on a defensive player, and if they do, I'll be buying a new TV, because this one will be toast!

I've come to the logical conclusion that Kiper has been huffing his hairspray canister.Miami needs many things before they need another DT;the only defensive need that I see is in the secondary.Personally,I can't wait until the draft so I will have a real sport to talk about!

Anonymous patrick said...

Kiper goes strictly off what player he has rated highest for that pick. Okoye is probably the highest rated player at number 9. This is one of those cases where the highest ranked guy does not fit the need. I imagine it must be really hard for a GM to have to make a call to pass on a guy rated higher on his board for a different player based on need.

Let the subterfuge begin! By talking up Quinn Cameron must have taken a liking to one of the second tier guys. My concern at number 9 is Levi Brown. We didn't even bring him down for a look so it must mean Houck doesn't like him. I think Mueller wants out of 9 but will not know how to play it until the time comes. He's hoping AP falls or someone covets a guy still on the board.

Rome will not be built in one draft so we can't make a poor decision based on need.

Mueller and Cammeron are very smart and in the same page. Obviously, they understand Miami needs to upgrade their offense. I am sure that a defensive player will not be added to our roster in the first 2 rounds. With that said, they will move up to get Quinn if Cleveland passes on him. Also, if that is not the case then, Adrian Peterson will be picked if in our reach. Lastly, if none of them are available to us, we will consider trading down.

Wow, Armando, I realized you were arrogant, and often a sunovabitch, but your article today is beyond the pale. You already are acting if dumping Daunte is a done deal. I will enjoy a good LAUGH if you prove wrong. Your journalism is piss poor when you start writing as facts things that are not facts. More important, your egging on ill-advised personnel moves by the Dolphins qualifies you for Dolfan Enemy List -- please reveal your favorite team because it surely is not the Dolphins with all the bad analysis you are spouting about them.

As for the draft, forget Quinn, aka Joey Jr., and draft Ted Ginn, then an offensive tackle and a quarterback in round 2.

Anyone Who wants Miami to draft ted ginn jr. at #9 is an idiot sorry buddy that would be the worst move to make. Miami should take Levi but if they can trade down with GB then do that and take Staley. If that were to happen proper compensation would their 2nd round pick (47). Then draft Trent Edwards (Cam is said to covet him almost as much as Quinn) then maybe higgins (wr) and courtney brown (cb). That scenario, not the players, would be ideal.

Who cares if cpeep is out? It really doesn't make a difference, the dolphins look like fools if they keep him or if he goes just because of the way Brees played last year and the fact that he is still not healthy makes it worse. They were going to draft a young QB this year anyway Miami just doesn't have to do anytning drastic in the draft. For example, move up in the draft to get Quinn. Idiot!

Okoye could end up as a great 3-4 end for us. Who knows if in 5 years from now we'll even be playing a 3-4. The point is to take the best player available who can help your team as well.

I know all the talk is on the first-round pick, and rightly so, however, the second pick is the one I'm curious about. I hope the Dolphins take Drew Stanton, QB from Michigan State. He's a player, with escapability, vision and he's an accruate thrower on the run -- something you MUST have in today's NFL where you have to improvise on the run.
So get Trent Green to take us through this year and teach Stanton until he's ready - and trade Culpepper for something we can use. Your thoughts?

This really is very simple. Wayne said we will do ANYTHING to get better and eventually get the the SB. This year "anything" is giving up our #1, one of our 2s and a 3 + our 2 next year to move up to #2 and take Brady Quinn. Just read what the GMs around the league are privately saying....he is as close to Peyton Manning in a QB that they've seen in years. Go get the QB and end this already.

If they can make the trade b/f the draft they can trade c'pep to Oakland who wants Calvin Jackson but, can't take him unless they get Green or C'pep.

Easy as that - we get some value for Daunte, we get our QB and we get Green to groom him. Ricky comes back to team with Brown and we take a OT in round 2 with our other pick.

Add in Joey Porter on an already good defense and you're looking at 9-7 or 10-6 AND Quinn waiting to bust loose.

See how simple?

Jimmy: Ginn at 9? It doesn't make much sense to pick a player that you could get 10 picks later. Anyone who picks a WR in the top 15 not named Calvin Johnson is an idiot. WRs are a gamble and this draft is deep enough that you can make that gamble in the second round.

The Dolphins Draft board should look something like this:

Quinn
Brown
Branch
Trade down

I'm not sold on Hall and I don't see the Phins drafting a CB in the first round. Daniels is still young and they don't know what they got in Allen just yet. Landry won't get past Atlanta so he doesn't even matter.

On a note to trade up to pick #2 - That will never happen because the cost is WAY too high. You are suddenly competing with about 3 or 4 other teams who want that pick to draft Calvin Johnson. Won't happen. If Calvin Johnson goes to the raiders? Even better for the Dolphins. That means either Russell or Quinn falls to #6 where the phins can trade with the Redskins for a little more than a 3rd round pick.

A lot of interesting reads in this blog. I'm not a fan of Ginn Jr. He reminds me too much of Troy Williamson. Mueller has a great track record with drafting QB's. Delhome, Bulger, Brooks just to name a few. In a perfect world we'd draft...
1. Quinn
2. LT (Tony Ugoh, Arron Sears or Ryan Harris)
2. Simon Rice. (This kid would have been a top 10 pick if he stayed another year. He's a split image of Calvin Johnson. He only droped one pass all year. We'd be lucky to have our recievers only drop one pass per game.
3. Best available (ala Channing Crowder)

The alternative would be to draft Levi Brown then pick up Edwards, Beck or Kolb in round 2.

Quinn should be our main priority. If he falls grab him if not trade down. If we can't trade down. Levi Brown is our guy.

Ginn will be a bust in the league. His athletic skills will only take him so far. How many muffs did he have last year? Lord.....

I wouldn't take a WR in the first round except for CJ. Anthony Gonzalez will be an all pro..wait and see. He'd be my pick in the 2nd.

As for the other 2nd grab Kalil if he's fallen or another OL.

3rd round will still have some decent QB's.....I'll leave it to Mueller to pick a good one.

Next year will suck if we're depending on Trent Green...Give me some hope and pick up Quinn. Please.......

A bunch of morons in the comment section today.

Ted Ginn, Jr., is clearly top 10 talent, says real experts far and wide, and the idea should be to get the player that can help your team the most. Ginn is going to be one of those players that make a big difference in the win margin. If you want a high powered offense, you need speedy players like Ginn on the outside.

Who gives a crap what pick you take him at if he is the best one for your team on the board. Of course, if you can trade back and take him with a lower pick -- obviously, you do that. A given -- only a moron would complain on such a point.

As for the buttwipes here defending the bad journalism by our esteemed blogger, your unconvincing words speak volumes about your football IQ. Culpepper will be the one laughing at you, whether he is in a Dolphin uniform or not.

But beyond the cruel foolishness in how Mr. Daunte is being treated by you so-called Dolphin fans, the more troublesome issue for me is the really obnoxious, boneheaded, ill-thought out analysis provided by our so-called expert here. Lets think critically, and not kiss the Dolphin GM HC behinds all the time because its a substitute for thought.

Oh Jimmy, you my friend are clearly dellusional. I'll give you this, I like Ted Ginn Jr. as well. It's amazing how many people forget the kind of playmaker he is, and teams are starting to realize the value of a great KR/PR with the emergence of Devin Hester. I would not have a problem with Miami calling Ginn's name on Saturday, if he was the best player available.

Now, onto the rest of that nonsense, you call a rant. I'm guessing that Armando probably has more connections with the Dolphins, than you do homie. Do I agree with Armando all the time? Absolutely not. However, he has been pretty much on the ball with what he's written over the past few weeks. I mean, you would have to be a damn fool to not be able too see the writing on the wall when it comes to Dumbte Suckpepper.... I mean, Daunte Culpepper. Clearly, this new regime has showed little to no faith in him, and I can understand why. Eighteen months later, this man's knee still isn't right, and that "minor surgery" turned out to be a bold-faced lie.

I'm glad I don't go to you for stock advice because with way you support Culpepper, you must believe in sticking with bad investments until they finally bite you in the keester, and what your left with is absolutely nothing that compensates your blind faith and ignorance. Face it, Daunte was a complete and utter failure here, and the team is doing the smart thing by cutting their losses and moving on. Coach Cameron and Randy Mueller has EVERY right to find the quarterback that THEY feel is best for the team. If Trent Green and a rookie quarterback is the best route to go, then so be it. Why should this regime be saddled with the mistake Saban made?

To be fair, I'll admit that I used to be an avid Daunte supporter when we traded for him. However, with each passing day the reality of the situation became clearer and clearer to me. That being the only future Daunte has in Miami is NO future. I doubt that Daunte will ever be laughing at us in another NFL uniform. Because I think the man's career could very well be over. Without his mobility he's just another Jeff George.

You critcize Armando, for not thinking critcally. It appears to me, that the only one who doesn't think critically is YOU junior.

We need to establish a dominance on the line of scrimmage. That is what wins in the NFL.

1 (9) Levi Brown - OT
2.(40) Drew Stanton - QB
2.(60) Josh Beekman - OL
3.(71) Quentin Moses - OLB
4.(108) Josh Gattis - S
6.(181) Dan Sepulveda - P
6.(199) Jared Zabransky - QB
7.(219) Reggie Lewis - CB
7.(225) Tim Duckworth - G
7.(238) Ken Darby - Rb

Brown, Beekman and Duckworth improve our OL, especially with the return of Anthony Alabi and Joe Toledo. And we still have Hadnot, Carey, and Shelton. And we added Lewienski. A much improved OL.

Adding Stanton and Zabransky to Lemon means we need no overpaid bum from another team. Ditch Culpepper ASAP and let's move on.

Moses, Gattis and Lewis will add quality youth to our defense. They are talented and versatile.

Sepulveda is a stud punter and Darby is a better RB than people think.

This would be a great draft. The only other player I would really like to get would be Jamaal Anderson. He would be a perfect fit on our 3-4 defense.

Later,
Tim from Atlanta

Ginn a top ten talent? Come on..Sure he was playmaker at Ohio State when all he did was run fly patterns.

His route running and hands are mediocre at best. He's a return specialist that shouldn't warrant anything more than a 2nd round pick.

Sure you could make the argument that Devin Hester warranted a 1st round pick last year, but ultimately Ginn is a project. You don't pick projects in the top ten.

Derek Says...I have to agree that there is not need to draft DT. While everyone in the world is telling us how old our defense is, they seem to forget we drafted, Manny wright, Rodrick Wright, Vickerson, and have Matt Roth to go with JT and Vonnie. At 9, I say we draft BPA, and I know we have needs, but most likely the BPA will fill a need. Quinn is the obvious one if here is there, but I would hate to see us give up one of the seconds for him, especially the 40th! If Peterson falls and we can't trade out then take him!!! Brown and Peterson in the backfield, WOW, then draft OL, QB in the second! O-line is an obvious need, but can be addressed in the 2nd and 3rd if need be...we could trade out of 9 with GB and draft a WR down the line, I like Mecham personally, more of a WR, where Ginn appears to be a specialist. Dream Draft IMO

9 - Quinn Falls into our lap
40 - WR - Gonzalez, Smith or Jarrett if he falls that far
60 - o-line, should be pleanty of talent left
3rd - o-line or DB help
4th - o-line or DE

I totally agree with the guys who think we shouldn't take a DL player - that's really no need at all before we haven't seen Rodrique Wright and the other young guys play.

After looking up tons of mock drafts non of these players really dropped out of the top 5: Russell, Johnson,Adams and Thomas.

This leaves Quinn, Peterson, Okoye, Landry (the guy Saban would have drafted!!!), Brown, Willis, Anderson, Branch and Hall in my top 13.

Because we had the 5th best Defense last year and added Porter to that we should only wait and try to go Offense - if Quinn (need and value), Brown (need) or Peterson (value - Packers or Bills will go crazy to get him) are avaiable - go and get them, but there is no reason in the world to move up and lose a 2nd rounder.

If they are gone already they should try to move down or get Willis, because Zach won't play forever.

So here my ranking for the 9th pick:

1) Quinn (value + need)
2) Brown (need)
3) Peterson (value - trade with Packers or Bills - I would prefer the Packers - the Bills would have to pay big time, because they are in our devision)
4) Trade down
5) Willis (need)
6) Okoye (value - he will play forever)
7) Branch and Anderson (value)
8) Landry (value + need - but he played for LSU)
9) Hall (need - and move Allen back to Safety)
10) WR - but hey their will be a couple of them left in the 2nd and this would really be more than a reach - Hey Chambers was a 2nd rounder - any questions?

So here a few first day szenarios i would really love:

Szenario 1:

9) Quinn
40) Gonzales,Smith, Rice, Hill, Davis
60) Free, Harris, Beekman, Ramirez
71) Davis, Bradley, Blades

Szenario 2:

9) Brown
40) Gonzales,Smith, Rice, Hill, Davis
60) Siler, Harris, Davis, Bradley, Blades
71) Beck

Szenario 3:

9) Willis or Okoye
40) Gonzales,Smith, Rice, Hill, Davis
60) Free, Harris, Beekman, Ramirez
71) Beck

Hey by the way - we are talking about bringing back the Fins to the top - so f**king keep Cpeep - get Green as safety blanket - draft a young QB and trade Lemon for a second day draft choice. So why am I saying this? Just think about this - let Cpeep play a few preseason games to show that he is healthy and than trade him for a 3rd rounder next year - now that is value - not just cutting him loose.

Cheers from Germany and have a great draft day party.

Unreal: The criticisms by short-term memory "Dolfans" and the journalists reaching for stories in the dead of the offseason are beginning to get insulting (only because they couldn't get any dumber).

The new staff is putting together a team of the future. JJ, Wannstadt, Saban, and Ricky wrecked us slowly but surely - meaning we can't just have a team that "goes for it" next year or even the following. BUT, we CAN have a team that does it on a consistent basis beginning in 3 or 4.

Trent Green questions?!?! Are you kidding me? Is there a better or more classy Quarterback to teach a rookie with as much potential as Beck then Green? Probably not.

Ginn a reach?!?! What? The guy is a threat to score anytime he touches the ball (when's the last time we got the cheap special teams TDs every other team in the AFC East gets?

Overrated mid and late round picks? Are there any that aren't? Should they have drafted imbeciles who take their opportunities for granted like Denver and Cincinati? No, I didn't think so. Instead we got guys that have faith and morals - wow, Miami certainly didn't need any of those (sarcasm).

This will end up being an excellent draft, and I only wish public apologies would be posted as quickly as time-wasting criticisms.

Heart over hype, that's the direction we're going and I for one love it. I'm a full-fledge Cameron supporter, as anyone who deems themself a "Dolfan" should be.

I'm not shy in identifying myself as the one and only Dolphin Guru of Huntsville, AL. I think the article is fine, the draft is fine, and the decision to terminate Vick & Wright is fine. Brady Quinn is another pretty boy, over hyped, under achieving Notre Dame QB, who doesn't possess a brain. Did you see him chomping his gum on national TV like an idiot? We got our intelligent QB as well as a top flight receiver, who would not have been available in the 2nd round had we drafted Quinn. We upgraded our team speed and our team character. I saw more in this draft than I have seen since the Shula years, and I, for one, am happy and even ecstatic over the fact that we are beginning to look at character again. We have a fullback who weighs 272 lbs., runs through walls, and averages 5 yards a carry. We are cleansing ourselves from Vick and Wright, two of Saban's projects who lack character. Bring it on. I'm ready for a new era and I fully support our staff. I haven't been this happy as a Dolfan since Shula was in charge! Wake up and support your team, Dolfans!
