Spring is in full swoon, are you feeling the love like I am?
The titans of NFL business sure aren't.
With the 2011 NFL draft just a few days away and a record 25 players set to attend, Judge Susan Nelson dealt a massive blow to entertainment’s greatest oligopoly. I feel both sides in this labor dispute, but I also feel a warm glow inside, as this victory for the players harks back to the days of Teddy Roosevelt. Now, if only a judge would swing the hammer to the financial industry.
I digress. But honestly, do any Miami Dolphins fans regret the No. 1 pick in the 2008 draft?
A lot of crop talk has been dusting around about the Miami Dolphins from the former South Beach Czar Bill Parcells, who apparently is “disappointed” with Chad Henne and drafting his valiant Michigan protector, Jake Long, may have been a “mistake.”
No, Bill, Pat White was a mistake.
The Miami Dolphins select Jake all day Long. In 2008 number one overall, now with hindsight and in the future when he is a hall of fame Left Tackle. The Dolphins were atrocious before 2008, and our offensive line, the most important battalion of the team, was in shambles. Selecting Jake Long was the dawning of a new era in Miami, and it’s only going to continue to improve.
Call me an optimist, but this weather is too fine to not love the future. Here is my full, seven round best-case scenario Miami Dolphins mock draft.
Need: OL, RB, WR, TE, QB, ILB, S
