How the 2010 and 2011 draft set us back.......

First off I want to say that I've been reading The Phinsider for a few years now and never really posted or commented on anything. Well after looking through a lot of posts no one has really went back and looked at the drafts we had in 2010 and 2011 and how our team could have turned out.


The Dolphins had the 12th overall pick in the draft and we traded it to the chargers for the 28th pick and some some later pick. If they would ahve stayed at 12, we could have gotten; Jason Paul Pierre, Earl Thomas, or even Dez Bryant. Any one of these players would fill a huge gap for us and are way better than far. Next in the 2nd round we take the incumbnant Koa Misi who has been just ok for now whereas we could have drafted Rob Gronkowski instead giving us a premiere tight end. Also in the 3rd round, instead of John Jerry we could have had, Jimmy Graham, Aaron Hernandez, or Navorro Bowman. All 3 of those guys are pernenial pro bowl caliber players.

Our Team in 2010 could have had JPP and Wake on the line. Marshall, Hartline, Bess and the Gronk! And Bowman as a lineback instead of Koa Misi....... I guess our front office is excellent at evaluating talent......


The Dolphins had the 15th pick and did not trade up or down, however seeing the production from players such as A.J. Green and Julio Jones I'm a bit dissapointed we didnt reach for one of those recievers but there were recievers later we missed on. I won't dispute the pouncey pick, I feel he will be a cornerstone in our line for years to come, but then in the 2nd round we reach for Daniel Thomas and miss on Randall Cobb or Torrey Smith, both would have been a great compliment to Marshall and Gronk. With Bess in the slot and Hartline as a 4th reciever we would be in great shape. We could have even waited till round 5 to grab Denarious Moore.... Just saying.....

Just a few different decisions could have greatly affected our team and franchise to date and instead of being in an obvoius rebuilding year we could be competing for a division title.

This is my first post but it won't be the last........btw go Fins this sunday and pray that the knee injury that Foster sustained today is serious.....on 2nd thought hes on my fantasy team so nm...
