    I do not undrstand what the Dolphins have to gain by doing that? Maybe the father misunderstood what was really said.

    I think the Dolphins didn't expect Vontae to last that long. And I believe the Pats took Butler between Vontae and their Sean Smith pick.

    Ouch! Very short sighted on the part of the Dolphins. BP should know better.

    BP has been known to bend the truth but so has BB. Never believe any pre-draft promises unless you've got your name inked to a contract, ala Stafford.

    Darius Butler seems to have "IT" in terms of a CB hes confident, got good swagger but still seems level headed and a hard worker. Ellis my man you better step it up. The training camp CB battle should be intense

    I agree that Vontae Davis is probably the reason they didn't take Butler since Davis was projected to go in the teens.

    Another reason could be that they knew the Pats liked Butler and figured they might wait to the second round to take him. If the Pats wanted him and were expecting to take him 34th, finding out that he would be drafted 25th would force them to consider taking him at 23.

    Oops you beat me to it. But the Pats didn't have to take the bait since Vontae Davis dropped anyway. Since no CB had come off the board by the time the Pats were on the clock, the odds that Butler was going to slide into the second round had increased exponentially.
