Anybody heard of this Washburn QB before? Tony Pauline is saying he's had a ton of interest from the Dolphins. Would be a UDFA. Sure looks good in these Youtube clips.

Koa Misi pleads not guilty to three felony counts

As it turns out, the alleged events occurred in April 2011, and Misi failed to appear for his original arraignment. According to the Santa Barbara Independent, Misi pleaded not guilty on Friday to three felony charges: battery with serious injury, residential burglary, and dissuading a witness. During what his lawyer calls a "drunken altercation," Misi allegedly punched through the door of an apartment, hit a man in the face, and then grabbed the cell phone of a woman who was trying to call police and hurling it to the ground.

What if we traded our... maybe 3rd and 4th round pick for John Skelton, the backup QB for the Cardinals. He played very well finishing with a 7-2 record last season, and it looks lime the Cards are too invested in Kolb to give him a fair shot.

The Dolphins will have a fan announce a draft pick in NY. It shows they're trying. I just wish it was @ckparrot & he changed to his own pick

Per Dave Hyde Twitter So... I would not be shocked if on of our own is the fan in question. I won't mention any names... But, off4l, if you happen to be in NYC in the near future, give me a buzz ;)

Fifth-year contract formula could push Tannehill out of top 10

2

Under the new CBA, a team may sign its first-round pick to a four-year contract with an option for a fifth year. The salary for the fifth year is based on a formula that hinges on whether the player is picked in the top 10 or the next 22. For the top 10, the salary is determined by calculating the average of the 10 highest-paid players at the pick’s position in the prior season. For the next 22, the number is determined by calculating the average salary of the third-highest paid player at the position through the 25th highest paid player at the position in the prior season. I think this could be very important. As seen this past offseason, Jeff Ireland isn't going to overpay for players (Flynn, Smith, Anderson, Laurent Robinson come to mind). And with the difference that especially makes at the quarterback position, Ireland will definitely have to have a strong conviction he's the guy at 8. Trading down in the first seems more likely. Trading up from the 2nd could be a possibility, too.

He wasn't successful with Miami, but congratulations to Colombo for a long career in which he did enjoy success in Dallas.

Just thought this was cool. The more pictures I see...the more amped up I get for the Draft, Pre-Season, and Regular-Season to start.

Late night question. I've been a huge advocate of trading back into the first round with our 2nd pick. Now I want to pose two questions to you: 1) If we grab Tannehill at number 8, would you be happy if we traded back into the first round with our 2nd and 3rd pick, plus a pick for next year, in order to grab either Mercilius or Perry? They are good pass rushers that can make an impact from day 1. 2) Or would you chance it and grab Vinny Curry in the second and then double down on receivers in the 3rd; say a big receiver like Mcnutt and a shorter speedier receiver with like Chris Givens? Does Vinny Curry fall to us? If he doesn't, does Andre Branch fall to us? He is less pro-ready than Curry. My gut reaction in both these scenarios is to trade back into the 1st and get a guy that will make an impact on the team from day 1. What do you think?

Something that really stood out for me from the Jeff Ireland interview... At the end of "part 1"...

Something that really stood out for me from the Jeff Ireland interview... At the end of "part 1" he was talking about how wider receivers would be heavily stacked on his draft board. He said they come in all shapes and sizes; some may be 5"9 and some may be 6"5. Big thing for me right after that was that he said WR was a real good group this year. I was thinking that we wouldn't double down after taking Naannee, but I am not so sure now. I must admit, I like taking a wide receiver in the 3rd and then again in the 5th. Why not if the position is so deep this year?
