So Rueben Foster got ejected from the combine after threatening medical staff during the medical checks. He threatened to assault a hospital worker because he didn't want to wait in line.

This attitude and lack of respect during the biggest job interview you will ever have shows a complete disregard for authority.

Even if he is on the board, the Dolphins should pass.


If those reports are accurate then I hope we remove him from the board.

I've been keeping an eye on DE Trey Hendrickson. He's a Player from from Florida Atlantic, which is in the Dolphin's backyard. He had a great week at the Shrine game practices. He is having a solid combine and ran the 40 in 4.65 at 6'4" 266 lbs. He had a very productive college career and was 2 times first team all conference (2015, 2016). He has a habit of blocking kicks and was tied for best in the nation with 4 blocked kicks in 2016.

He's not very long for a DE with a 32" arm length, played against lower talent level in college, and is in a very strong edge rusher class. He could be available with our 3rd round comp pick, but I wouldn't be shocked if he is drafted late 2nd or early 3rd, although most experts are saying he is a 4th rounder.

DeMarcus Walker in Round Two wouldn't be bad.

I would be very excited if we could land Barnett at 22. None of his measurables will jump out at you, but he dominates on film.......game after game he makes key plays from the DE position.

This is what excites me also. Every year people fall in love with players who blow up the combine and players who actually produced on the field drop because of it. I will always favor production over combine results.

Of course I agree with you, but it can work both ways. Sometimes there are players that have been highly productive but do horrible at the combine ( see Michael Sam ). I'm only interested in productive players, and I'm looking for their combine results to match their production. Of course there can be exceptions.

I feel that Barnet's combine performance was acceptable. It wasn't amazing, but considering that he had the intestinal fortitude to compete at the combine while struggling to hold down fluids ( the flu ), and still had acceptable numbers demonstrates toughness. We need tough players that play for the teammates on their left and the right.

That's rough for the kid. Achilles injuries can be hard ones to come back from (unless you are superhuman like Wake). I didn't see the Fins taking a 1st round CB anyway, but Jones may have gone before 22, thus pushing other players down.

I'm really starting to jump on the Haason Reddick bandwagon. He's an athletic freak with actual college production. If we could trade down a few spots and take him, it would be perfect. Only issue would be that he's probably a WLB, and Kiko got pushed over there with the Timmons signing. Unless Timmons was signed to be the SLB, which could make some sense as Kiko has stated that he prefers to play in the middle. I could get on board with a Reddick/Kiko/Timmons LB corps.

Your score is: 12144 (GRADE: A-)

Your Picks:
Round 1 Pick 29 (G.B.): Takkarist McKinley, OLB/DE, UCLA (B+)
Round 2 Pick 22: Jourdan Lewis, CB, Michigan (B+)
Round 2 Pick 29 (G.B.): Marcus Williams, FS, Utah (A-)
Round 3 Pick 33 (COMP): Jake Butt, TE, Michigan (A-)
Round 5 Pick 22: Sean Harlow, OG, Oregon State (A)
Round 5 Pick 34 (COMP): Keionta Davis, DE, Chattanooga (A-)
Round 5 Pick 40 (COMP): Ryan Switzer, WR, North Carolina (A-)
Round 7 Pick 5: Zane Gonzalez, K, Arizona State (A)


Went Cb in second rd with the thinking of upgrading our slot corner. Not to high on McCain. Also selected TE in 3rd to redshirt him. Then take over following year with Fasano on one yr deal and J. Thomas injury history

And right on cue, McShay has him as our pick in his mock today.

Did I miss something? Are you proposing a trade with GB for them to move up to 22 in 1st and we get their 1/29 and 2/29?
