2008 NFL Draft: Day 2 Open Thread


Day 2

After a fun, but exhausting day yesterday, we are back for day 2, which begins at 10 am EDT.  Still some very good players available and it sure would be good for the Dolphins, for once, to uncover a "hidden gem" here in the later rounds.  This is where great teams are made and solid depth is found.

I won't go on and list all the players I would like to see taken, but here are a few I wouldn't mind Bill Parcells and Jeff Ireland selecting here on day 2:

-RBs - Kevin Smith, Jamaal Charles, Tashard Choice
-WRs - Mario Manningham, Andre Caldwell, Earl Bennett, Early Doucet
-OLs - Jeremy Zuttah, Carl Nicks, Roy Schuening, Anthony Collins, John Greco
-DLs - Red Bryant, Pat Sims, Frank Okam
-LBs - Beau Bell, Dan Connor, Cliff Avril, Tavares Gooden, Shawn Crable
-DBs - Reggie Smith, Charles Godfrey, Justin King, DaJuan Morgan, Antwaun Molden, Josh Barrett, Tyvon Branch

As you can see, some very good players are still on the board.

**UPDATE 9:51 am** The Dolphins have traded pick #64 to the Lions.  In return, the Dolphins get pick #66 and Detroit's 6th round pick (#176 overall).  Not bad, just sliding down 2 spots.

**UPDATE 10:14am** The Dolphins, with pick #66, take Hampton DE Kendall Langford.  He's a 6'5, 287 pound defensive end, an ideal player for a DE in a 3-4 defense.  Interesting stat on Langford:  On 234 running plays towards Langford, the opposition has gained just 64 yards against him.  Dominating much?

**UPDATE 12:20pm** The Dolphins move up 5 spots from 115 to 110 and take Utah St. guard Shawn Murphy.  He's a massive guy, at 6'3, 320.  He might be a bit raw, but he's very strong.  And with Tony Sparano's background, I'm confident they can develop him into a quality player.  Solid pick.  Dolphins had to give up pick #208 to move up in the trade with Chicago.
