With the 73rd pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins have selected John Jerry from Mississippi.
The Dolphins took a liking to Jerry at the Senior Bowl. He'll likely come in right away and compete to start at the guard position. He's a big, strong kid who definitely fits the mold of what this regime likes. It's clear that this 6'5, 328 pound lineman has Tony Sparano written all over him. This pick was for him, that's for sure.
Below is Jerry's scouting report from DraftCountdown.com:
Outstanding height and bulk with long arms --- Powerful and naturally strong --- Stout at the point of attack --- Gets a great push in the run game --- Dominant once locked on --- Solid instincts --- Durable --- Has lots of quality experience --- Offers some versatility --- Great bloodlines.
Inconsistent --- Heavy feet --- Is not a natural knee-bender --- Not very quick or agile --- Struggles with speed --- Limited range and doesn't do well in space --- Not very explosive off the snap --- Motor runs hot and cold --- May lack a killer instinct --- Conditioning and stamina are issues.
