Predicting Dolphins fans reactions to first round pick

New, comments

The NFL Draft is tonight. Whatever happens when the Miami Dolphins are on the clock, we predict the various reactions we will see from the fans.

USA TODAY Sports

We've reached the 2014 NFL Draft 2015 NFL Draft, and as Miami Dolphins fans, we really have no idea what the team will do.  They could trade up, they could trade back, they could get an offensive lineman, they could simply pick just about anyone.  It's all speculation and conjecture at this point, because no one outside the team knows what could be the team's plan.

What we do know is, no matter what happens, Dolphins fans will react.  And, there will be plenty of reactions.  We try to predict the reactions to tonight's first round, eight hours before the actual Draft.  Of course, there will be people happy and excited about the pick - but those aren't as much fun.

Dolphins select an offensive lineman:

  1. NO!  THEY GOT DESPERATE AND REACHED FOR _______.
  2. That's a horrible pick, they should have grabbed _(different OL)__ instead
  3. You don't pick an offensive lineman in the first round!  We need playmakers!
  4. This team is screwed because they always draft needs instead of the best player available.
  5. They should have traded back!  __(Another NFL team)__ would have given the Dolphins __(magically selected other team's picks they were willing to send to Miami)__.

Dolphins select a position other than offensive lineman:

  1. NO! THEY ARE IGNORING THE OFFENSIVE LINE! __(Position)__ WAS NOT A NEED!
  2. _(Player picked)__ is horrible.  He is __(slow, overweight, injury prone)__.
  3. That wasn't the best player available. They should have picked ____.
  4. You have to fill your needs, not take a luxury pick!
  5. They should have traded back!  __(Another NFL team)__ would have given the Dolphins __(magically selected other team's picks they were willing to send to Miami)__.

If Dolphins trade up:

  1. They overpaid!  They could have traded to __(pick)__ by giving up just a __(magically know what the asking price for other position would have been__.
  2. They moved up to grab him?  They could have waited!
  3. They should have picked ____ instead.
  4. They panicked and felt they had to move up.  Waste of the other picks.

If Dolphins trade back:

  1. They got ripped off.  __(Some other team)__ would have given __(magically know what other team would have offered)__
  2. They'll waste that/those extra pick(s) anyway.
  3. They went too far back.  Now they will miss on _____.
  4. They should have just picked _____.

Your turn.  What reactions do you expect to read/hear tonight?
