There's a lot of talk about who the dolphins will select with thier first round pick in the upcoming draft. my belief is that the dolphins 2nd round pick will be the defining selection for the phins this year. i suppose your saying " what a minute Frosty, the dolphins dont have a 2nd round pick....." I know they dont, not right now anyway. look people... everyone wants a first round QB. I think the more likely scenario is that the dolphins trade back in the first to get a 2nd round pick. there's just too many needs for the team to pass on the option to recoup that pick. with that being said....
I see the dolphins drafting an Interior offensive lineman in the first round. not the most "sexiest" pick, but then again neither was Jake Long.
Now, here's the kid i believe the dolphins should really look into.......Ricky Stanzi! I think this kid has got all the tools to be a great QB in the NFL. and for what it's worth, the kid is confidant and he is a leader ( two things our current QB is missing). to be cliche' "he can make all the throws" and he is accurate on the run. he has played in a pro-style offense at Iowa. he shows some nice touch on the deep pass and can riffle it to the outside on a 20 yard fade rout.
One of the biggest draws to this kid is.... he's kind of under the radar, as of right now. i believe he is a first round talent that is going to slip into the 2nd round. which is super beneficial for the miami dolphins. his 6-4 230 lb frame is a little slight but i bet he can put on 5-10 lbs of muscle and still keep his elusiveness.
again the plus side to taking Stanzi is we can land another offensive starter in the first, wether it be a OG/C like Pouncy or Wisniewski. there's a reasonable chance that one Mr. Mark Ingram may still be on the board. depending how far back the dolphins trade. i have posted a video of some of Ricky Stanzi highlights, when you watch, notice he's not tossing the ball into zone coverages ala Cam Newton, and he's not soley in the shot gun ala Blain Gabbard and Ryan Mallet. he show's some wheels on a QB keeper and throws on dime while in a dead sprint.
well, thats my case for the dolphins first 2 rounds and maybe they're future. let me know what you guys think.....
