Who's worried we aren't going to be able to draft our franchise quarterback if we keep winning? Seems as though with every win, the Dolphin fans grow a little more restless. I must admit, this is an awkward position to be in. I know all of the true fans were jumping up and down in their living rooms and at the game, watching this completely dominating effort displayed by our team. Yet, with every step forward, we take a few steps back. I'm referring to our draft position of course.
After the game I read many comments about the fans and their concerns. Tell me this- If there are about 4-5 quarterbacks in this draft that many of you wouldn't mind seeing in a Dolphins uniform- where are the all going?
#1 Colts (0-12) They will most likely draft Andrew Luck
#2 Vikings (2-10) Set with Ponder
#3 Rams (2-10) Set with Bradford
#4 Bucs (4-8) Will probably still go with Freeman for a couple more years.
#5 Redskins (4-8) I can see this being Barkley's/ RGIII's destination
#6 Dolphins (4-8) I believe we draft Barkley or RGIII
#7 Eagles (4-8) Will continue with Vick or Young for at least one more year.
#8 Panthers (4-8) Set with Cam
#9 Browns (4-8) Could keep developing Colt or draft another QB.
#10 Jaguars (3-8) Still developing Gabbert
#11 Chargers (4-7) Set with Rivers
#12 Cardinals (5-7) Too early to pull the plug on Kolb
#13 Seahawks (5-7) This is another team that can use a QB.
If we win out, at 8-8 we will probably need to trade up. I predict yet another 7-9 season with the 15th-17th pick in the draft. Jones or Barkley might still be there. We will have to see how the remainder of the season goes before we know anything, but I speculate that we will be in position to at least grab one of these QB's.
