    first two rounds:

    remember all those predictions about LSU players taken in the first couple rds. not so much.

    mcshay has dorsey #2 and doucet not going til the 3rd.

    at least they arent still saying matt ryan leaf #1.

    I was afraid that Sed Ellis would fall to 9th at worst. the pick I am dying for the saints to get.

    WARNING FANS OPINION:

    Being that we all know I bascially live in Miami, I will tell you the fans want Dorsey. Thier reason is nothing better then wanting a team player, they have lost a lot of thier defensive older guys that have kept the team together and they love that consistency. They are upset that they have to take him right off the bat to get him, which they all assume won't happen.

    LSU's players combines were very dissapointing. I don't know what that was all about.

    I think Early Doucet surprised me the most. I thought he'd be 2nd round at worst, but injuries through the year & mediocre 40 may hurt him more than I thought.

    I never saw Ali Highsmith as any higher than a 3rd rounder, but his 40 time probably puts him a ways down as well.

    I'm surprised Ghoulston is still that high. Rivers before Ellis is different. Big Sed is going to make bank regardless but dropping to 9 or 10 means whoever gets him is getting a great deal.

    not the folks I talk to and the sports radio shows, they want Chris Long or whatever his name is. I hope Miami doesnt take Dorsey, he will be stuck in the abyss that they call a football team down here.

    i agree. its almost as shocking as matt ryan leaf possibly going #1. it just doesnt pass the eye test. dolphins may regret passing on dorsey. he fits the parcells' mold to a tee.

    minus the whole 4-3 thing.

    Didnt he get caught lying to GM's at the combine about smoking pot? Plus I thought his stock had dropped a lot when people actually watched film and didnt go off of hype. Either way Ellis or Rivers would be a way better pick.

    I'd like to see them take either of the Long's. Dorsey may be the better player but I just can't see them taking a DT #1, it just isn't worth the investment when DT's are easy to pick up in Free Agency. In all honesty the Dolphins are screwed with the number one pick, as they were a couple of years ago with the number two pick. None of the guys are worth the money they will get.

    What happened with the Saints talking to St. Louis about the #2 spot? Deke and Bobby were talking about it on WWL yesterday but they didn't have any specifics. Who could they possibly be going after?

    yes

    i disagree. there's a superstar in the bunch that will be heads and shoulders above the rest. maybe a couple. its their job to figure it out.

    could be dorsey or sed. im not buying gholston. guys who move up to overall #1 when not even listed in top 10 before because he looked good in workouts?

    ill take busts for 1000, alex.

    Most seem to think they want Dorsey if they moved up or Ellis. I do not think they will take a DE that high unless they feel into their lap at the 10 spot such as Gholston or Ellis could possibly fall to #10. Still a long shot that one of those guys fall that far but we have seen it before.
