Post Derrick Morgan popular guy in Dolphins draft room
Personally, I do not see Morgan as a stand-up 34 OLB. I don't think he is quick enough, and he would have to lose weight and with it would go some of his power, which is what makes his game so special.

Quote:
The draft is 41 days away, so a lot could change, but one NFL scout said Georgia Tech’s Derrick Morgan is picking up steam with the Dolphins.
...
The 6-foot-3, 266-pound Morgan could fall to No. 12 and the Dolphins, who’d move him from defensive end to 3-4 outside rush linebacker.

He is absolutely quick enough to play SOLB. No doubt about it. He ran his fourty as fast as McClain.. Granted they are different positions.. But, you don't need the speed at SOLB that you do at ILB.

Ive been studying this guy for the last week. Explosive is a word I would use to describe this guy. He is going to be a playmaker in the NFL.

Leave it to Phins Rock to knock a guy's weight when there is no need...again.

Yes, because he's going to play 34 OLB at 270-275??

Its a lie. Its draft time guys. No team is letting info out on players they truly are interested in.

Exactly. How would an NFL scout have access to discussions in the Fins front offices unless he was a Fins' scout? If he was a Fins' scout, why would he give away what the team is planning to do?

They need to save the speculation for guys whose pro days Miami is visiting and those being interviewed by the brass.

A source close to the organization told me they are going to trade down, get a 2nd 1st round pick and take the best NT & WR available at those picks...

lol did your source mention the team who's willing to trade with us not knowing who is still on the board at no.12?

I really hope that we are able to trade down, I think there will still be great value at the bottom of the first and top of the second. It has been said this draft is very deep and looking at NE's picks makes me want to puke.

Which players would be worth trading up for that might still be available at 12?

We wont know until the draft, but Dez or McClain, or one of the Qbs perhaps, it all depends on a lot of factors.
