so far we have progressed through 3 rounds of the draft. through these rounds we have selected a QB, OT,Pass rusher, and TE. you can be sure we will draft a wide receiver or 2 in the next 4 rounds. we are addressing needs on our team with quality players. we got a player from the U, which many have been clamoring for some south florida talent on our team for a while now.
Is Tannehill the guy? I dont know, but what I do know is this guy has the size and the ability to be a franchise QB. This is not Chad Henne 2.0. This guy is a LEADER. he may or may not pan out, but atleast we took a shot rather than trade down into the 20s and take a linemen. just ask yourself this.... when is the last time we have had this amount of talent at the QB position?
Our recent QBs include Henne, White, Thigpen,Culpepper,Feeley,Lucas,Feidler,Pennington amongst others, and none have the talent that Tannehill has. Just think back to the 2004 draft where Eli Manning was selected number 1 overall. Then Rivers was selected shortly after, then at pick 11 the Steelers select Roethlisberger. who came in and won 2 super bowls before the other 2 ever did anything significant. so what is my whole point about this??? the very same thing could happen this year. IMHO we have a much better team than the Redskins or Colts and I think we will be making playoff runs before they do.
So with all of that said, things are looking up in miami. We have our QB of the future and the sky is the limit. we have picked up quality players at positions of need and Ireland is making some good decisions. Did I mention we still have 4 rounds to go??? There are still some good players left and some good value going into the later rounds.one thing I havent mentioned is Jeff Irelands ability to find players through UDFA. expect 1 or 2 more players that could possibly contribute to the team this year.
so heres the poll.... are you happy with your current state of The Miami Dolphins?
