OK, let me just preface this by saying this is not by any means a serious post. It in no way changes my membership in the rainbows and unicorns club of which I am the founder. It is just an exercise to make myself laugh a little bit before the draft at the insanity of it all. With that said, I have determined that the Dolphins will select Quinton Coples in the 1st round and either Brock Osweiler, Kirk Cousins, or Brandon Weeden in the 2nd round.The reason? Simple deduction. Given Ireland's past 2nd round picks of:
2008 Phillip Merling- fail
2008 Chad Henne- fail
2009 Sean Smith- I like him but a lot of people here don't. He has been underwhelming given the talent level we all know he has.
2009 Pat White- fail
2010 Koa Misi- jail(see what I did there?)
2011 Daniel Thomas- for everything we gave up for the guy, I was not impressed with him. He didn't bite as a rookie. I would have been much happier had we just taken Mallet at this point.
As you can see it is very obvious we are going to draft a player that will totally disapoint us all. Given our luck with giving up 2nd round picks for QBs who we believe will be franchise QBs.. and our remarkably bad luck with getting any of them to be the answer... I think it is the perfect intersection of bad luck. We will pick a QB in the 2nd round this year. We have convinced ourselves that Tannehill is overvalued, and even though he will be long gone by the 2nd round, we have convinced ourselves that other QBs are actually better, because we know more than all the draft experts, who get paid at least to prognosticate.
So with all that said... who do you think our 2nd round pick will be? Keep in mind we are either looking for
a.) a guy with a high floor and a low ceiling, kinda like Koa Misi. OR
b.) a guy with a low floor and high ceiling, like Pat White.
They are going to be somewhere between superbly mediocre, to completely awful. So give me your choices. As a bonus you can also include if you think they will be a low floor/high ceiling guy like Pat White, or a high ceiling/low floor guy like Pat White.
