Jeff Ireland to talk publicly tomorrow

New, comment

I just wanted to point out that you can watch GM Jeff Ireland's press conference tomorrow live on miamidolphins.com.  It's scheduled to begin at 12:30 EDT.  

This is the last time the Dolphins will publicly talk about the draft before April 26's first pick.  It'll be interesting to see what, if anything, Jeff says about their potential negotiations with the players who could be the top pick.  

While most teams end up saying very little at these press conferences, there is a belief out there that Ireland will actually be more honest than others:

The truth is the Dolphins are acting quite civil about this whole draft thing. Ireland will talk about the draft for the first time Thursday. He isn't expected to unveil Miami's plans, but he isn't likely to lie either.

And the reason one can be relatively certain Ireland won't lie Thursday is that he turned down multiple requests to talk about the draft last month at the NFL annual meeting. The reason Ireland had for not wanting to talk then was simple:

He didn't want to be put in a position to lie.

So be sure to check out Ireland press conference tomorrow around 12:30 and then head back here to share your thoughts on what was or wasn't said by Jeff.
