Post The next phase of acquiring talent has started/Undrafted FA
Signing undrafted free agents, and there are a LOT of talented players out there still. Christian Jones of FSU and Anthony Johnson of LSU comes to mind right off the bat.

Nice....I think Miami has done a tremendous job of adding quality undrafted FA. I think there is a nice group of kids that have a chance of making this team.

Between the drafted and undrafted, you love every single player by all indications.

Love every player...Don't know about that. With the exception of James, the Dolphins drafted kids where they were slotted to be drafted. And James was not a HUGE reach, as he was showing up in some mocks in the 1st round. Tripp was thought to be a 3rd-4th round pick, so they got great value with that pick.

I like James, Turner, Landry, Aikens and Tripp a good bit and I think they will make the team. Lynch has a chance as well because Egnew has been such a disappointment.

As far as the undrafted FA, DT Anthony Johnson of LSU was a 2-3rd round projection, but he failed the drug test at the Combine. Arkansas OT David Hurd and Utah State OC Tyler Larsen are OL personnel that caught my eye.

All of these kids are good football players. We know the majority of them will not make the team.

We will know how good of a class it was at the end of the season.

Spot on Tony, don't apologize for your evaluations, you and I both know we did well as far as the big board goes. We could have picked Jadeveon Clowney's clone at 19 and these guys would still find a way to complain.

I take into context what people say on this year's draft based on comments they made in previous ones. A zebra never changes his stripes.

No offense swerve, but I still don't see where your opinion of these players trumps everyone else's. We could've picked a Will Davis clone at #19 and you would've found a way to Cloud 9.

I prefer to look at thing from a glass half full aspect Rock. As I said, all of these kids will not make this team that were drafted. They had their weak points and I did bring them up. You decide to post every player drafted weak points in detail.

You can do that about every prospect in this draft. The draft was deeper than ever before, and that was stated by the personnel on the NFL Network during the draft yesterday. Guys that would have been drafted last year went undrafted this year.

SO yes, there were a lot of good football players singed as undrafted FA by Miami. We know nearly the majority of those kids will not make the team or practice squad, but I do think 2-3 of those guys have a chance.

Plenty of guys seem to have problems with who Miami drafted on this board. Everybody has their opinion and they voice them on this board. I post what I thought and will leave it at that.

I only posted the weaknesses because every synopsis you did was glowing praise for the most part and any flaws you listed were minimal. I wanted to balance out the discussion.

That's funny. Will Davis was the one pick I really didn't like last year. But feel free to keep making things up and panning every move the team makes.

Who panned every move? I haven't even given my draft grade or opinion on most of these players.

anyway......This is the best group of undrafted players I think I've ever seen around the league. Lot's of guys who people thought were 4th round caliber. Just saw Craig Loston wasn't drafted. Cardinals got him.

Dolphins signed Marshall TE Gator Hoskins.
Hoskins (6-foot-1 5/8, 253) was a prolific red-zone receiver for the Thundering Herd, turning 99 career receptions into 1,318 yards (13.3 YPR) and 28 touchdowns, including 15 scores as a senior. Hoskins ran 4.73 at the Marshall Pro Day, adding a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-8 broad jump. A movable H-back type in the mold of new teammate Charles Clay, Hoskins will have to be used creatively by the Dolphins coaching staff to maximize his pass-catching tools. He's not an in-line tight end.

Just curious smart guy, who would you have picked with our 7 draft picks? Feel free to go back over the results and pick an available player at each pick we had. I bet I could poke holes in every pick you make.

It's a nice counter balance to the people who have a problem with every player...

On paper, as of right now, we have completely transformed our team. New RB, new receivers/te, basically brand new O-Line, added a new DT, new dbacks, OLB. The potential is high. Obviously, it depends on how they play...no :crap ...but any guess is as good as any right now. I am still a firm believer that our 8-8 finish last year could have been a lot, LOT worse.

There's no balance in the extremes and I've yet to see anyone degrade every single selection.

So seriously, Rock. Given that we have yet to see them on the field, which player or players were your favorite picks in this draft? Who are you glad we took when we took them?

Jordan Tripp and Arthur Lynch.

I like Landry as our slot guy, but still a reach where we nabbed him IMO.
