Done writing articles now?
Tannehill threw for 16 INT's last year. He would have thrown for over 20 had he played 16 games. Let me tell you why drafting a guard will put Miami over the top.
1. Miami was 30th in the league in QB hits last year.
2. They were third in the league in Sacks allowed.
3. As much as people want to make a case for QB, Matt Moore was pretty good last year. He had a QB rating of 87.5. That's good for 12th in the league. He was actually ahead of guys like:
Jay Cutler, Michael Vick, Cam Newton, Flacco, Palmer, Dalton, Fitzpatrick.
He did this while still getting sacked at an alarming rate. Think of what he could do in a quick pass west coast offense with an offensive line that can protect him. DeCastro is the only player at 8 that one can say with confidence will be a perenial pro bowl player. They are comparing this guy to Steve Hutchinson. In other words, he's a once in a decade type player. He would single handedly improve our running game. With one pick Miami will drastically improve their rushing and passing game. We'll have the best three headed monster in the league. Long, DeCastro, and Pouncey. Image that left side.
Philbin has already commented on Miami's need on the offensive line. Look for Miami to land either the All Pro guard DeCastro or the solid Reiff with the 8th overall pick.
2. Nick Perry
3. Harrison Smith (We have to get a safety. Smith is projected to be the best safety when it comes to covering TE's. (Gronk, Hernandez, Keller, TD Chandler)
3. Mohamed Sanu or Quick
4. Best Available (there is always someone who falls to the 4th)
5. Brock Oswieler (6'6 242 cannon arm)
6. best available
7. best available
Im waiting for another article, honest even though sometimes I disagree, you are probably the best in the blog.
Gah, the article comment does not work...
Jason Babin has been awesome.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - runs a top 5 leading offense..
Fred Jackson - Lesean above this guy, hello?
Ware instead of Sean Lee
Being a Texans fan they have been way more balanced than Dre has been awesome, I'd argue Matt instead.
Hey, would you be able to send your e mail to email@example.com? I want to get the B/R community leaders on a mailing list for a press release on behalf of Sports Media 101.
Thanks for banning me. For no reason.
Clearly you must be a Louisiana hater. I mean you have 3 players from LSU on your 20 Most Inexplicable Selections. The NFL scouts have forgotten more about football than you will ever know. These players will prove they are worth the pick.
You honestly still think that the AFC WEST Is a two-team race between the San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs, Really ??? Come on man the RAIDERS beat everyone in that division twice . And the only reason that Oakland didn't win that division is cuz they lost a couple games they should have won , 49ers Jaguars and even Houston .. Blowing out KC and Den and SD last year should get some respect .. The RAIDERS are back believe that ..
Still some things to deal with in camp!
You are obviously well connected - find out who one of the four sources of the texting was. Bet you can't find one. He isn't going to retire. Why would he send such texts but continue to work out and see his Doc the next week? Makes no sense.
