    that's a kind light you've cast, feelthpain... but as a Dolphins fan, i must concede that this first-day of the draft was a disaster for Miami...

    after missing out on Levi Brown, and ignoring Brady Quinn, you don't use the No. 9 pick on a 175-pound receiver who's injured, has questionable hands, runs poor routes, and won't go over the middle with much confidence... Randal 'Thrill' Hill come to mind, anyone?... i don't care how fast he is, he'll never be a No. 1 receiver.... and that's what you should be getting with the No. 9 overall selection...

    Next, we miss Kevin Kolb by 3 picks at No. 40... Several different publications corroborated that Cameron was enamored with Kolb, and the Eagles sweep in and trade up to get him... Lovely... So then we take BYU's John Beck, and the brass pretend they wanted Beck all along...

    Then, we use the Welker pick to address the O-Line, finally... Unfortunately, the best center in years Ryan Kalil, goes one pick before us... And we reach again for a suggested 4th-round center from a run-n-shoot offense in Hawaii....

    And we top it off with Lo Booker in the third round... Ok, an exciting jitterbug... But if Ginn is your return man, and Ronnie Brown has among the best RB hands in the league, what's the point in a 3rd-down back? Especially with all indications of Ricky coming back? You use the No. 2 overall selection to take Ronnie Brown, and continue to limit his touches, like the last regime butchered last season...

    Desperate needs for the Dolphins were OT, OG, QB, and DB and barely did a thing about it... So, unless Taylor and Porter kill every opposing quarterback next year, the Dolphins have assured themselves of last place...

    Ethan Skolnick offered a poiniant question in his blog today: If Dave Wannstedt, Nick Saban and Cam Cameron all entered the Dolphins practice bubble, which of them would receive the warmest welcome?

    This cursed team will just never learn, apparently... They just don't understand what the draft is all about...

    The Dolphins just drafted Satele with the 2nd round pick acquired from the Pats for Welker.

    I thought the Colts selection of Gonzalez was similar to the Pats trade for Welker, and they gave up more for someone who (as far as I know) isn't as adept as a returnman. Might I also add that Gonzalez isn't nearly as proven as Welker, or even catch 67 passes last year (in college).

    it is about value and also loss and gains.

    We lost a rookie center, for a veteran WR.

    A veteran WR can impact the game more and have that impact cover a larger field area, where as a rookies center is probally only for special teams.

    I would not line up a rookie center cosistently it will force me to have rb and te to stop the blitz.

    I rather have a veteran WR that can reconize the blitz and be talented enough to help brady beat the blitz.

    He'll most likely compete for a G position as we have Hadnot at Center and he just signed a well deserved extension, infact with incentives he did quite well. Good pick for us, we needed to fix the Oline. Ginn will replace Welker this year for us given Ginns ability expolsivness and speed we should be a better at the rd WR position this year.
