Fins should take classes in determining how to get NFL Picks from their current rivals
When it comes to NFL Picks, the Miami Dolphins have not had any luck in making quality selections. Whether if it’s Bill Parcells, Rick Speilman, Nick Saban or Jeff Ireland who is their current general manager only Jake Long has been a stamp on the roster. And that’s because he was the first NFL Pick of the 2008 Draft.
For example take the Dolphins First Round NFL Picks last year. They drafted Jared Odrick who broke his leg the first game of the season. Instead of trading up they traded down. Passing on people like Maurkice Pouncey, CJ Spiller, Dez Bryant, and Earl Thomas. Heck they even passed out on some excellent tight ends in the later rounds. The Pats got 2 excellent tight ends and the Saints got another tight-end from UM who is a pro-bowler in the making.
Their Rivals NFL Picks
I repeated the Patriots got rich in Tight-ends and also drafted a young secondary last year with Patrick Chung leading the way. Miami also picked some young talent in the secondary, but out of 4 or 5 NFL Picks only one (Vontae Davis) has great promising. Sean Smith will also be promising only if he can catch the ball for interceptions. I counted in one game last year that he dropped 5 interceptions in one game. So the Pats also have 9 NFL Picks in the first 3 Rounds in 2011. Meanwhile the Dolphins, only 2. They traded away 2 second round picks for Brandon Marshall which was a great trade for the Fins, the only problem is that they don’t have a QB to throw the ball, so he is relevant.
The last 3 years the Dolphins picked 3 QBs in the second round and none of them have seem to pan out. John Beck and Pat white both never saw the field and were released. And Chad Henne I think is valuable but not in the Dolphin’s current offensive system. The coach for the Fins (Sparano) I think is solid, but their front office is a fiasco starting with new owner Ross. He should have classes from Heat Owner Mickey Arison to show him how to run a sport’s franchise. One thing I can say is the Dolphins lead the league in celebrity owners with 5 or 6.
April’s NFL Picks Have to Be Sure things
This Year Drafts has to be 2 solid picks at least. They have many holes, QB, Safety, Linebacker, Running Back, Tight End, Guard. They need to trade as many current late picks to move up to get at least 2 solid NFL Picks this year. CJ Matthews will be nice at outside linebacker, he is the brother of Clay Matthews from Green Bay.
One thing that the Dolphins do good is find talent in other areas beside the draft. Take Devon Bess and Cameron Wake from Canada, both solid players respectively. Maybe they should hire whoever found them as General Manager.
Plan for the Fins, just get 2 can’t miss NFL Picks for next year. And build around that.
NFL Picks are very valuable.
