http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/writers/reuben_frank/11/14/dolphins/index.html It's so sad it really isn't funny any more. I have to try hard not to feel sorry for the Dolphins. (Shula helps me out) Small excerpt: Wide out Yatil Green, the 15th pick in 1997, caught 18 passes in his life. Tailback John Avery, a first-round pick in 1998, lasted 1 ¬Ĺ years before the Dolphins gave up on him. Tailback J.J. Johnson, a second-round pick in 1999, started five games, recorded a 3.4 rushing average and was out of the league by 2002. Cornerback Jamar Fletcher, a first-round pick in 2001, started six games in three years before drifting to the Chargers, Lions and Texans. Offensive linemen Taylor Whitley and Wade Smith, third-round picks in 2003, were both gone by 2005. Linebacker Eddie Moore, a second-round pick in 2004, started three games, was constantly hurt, and was out of football by 2006. Defensive end Matt Roth, a second-round pick in 2005, has 6 ¬Ĺ career sacks. Wade Smith rings a bell. Was he part of a Pats-Phins trade?
