Post Re-grading 2007 draft: Three-year look back gives real pictu
Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins had three picks in the first 60, and not one of them is still on the roster. They drafted Ted Ginn Jr. with the ninth overall pick, and he did little before being traded to the 49ers this month. The second-round pick was quarterback John Beck, who is now with Baltimore. He didn't do much for Miami. Third-round pick Samson Satele started the first two seasons with Miami, but was traded to Oakland last year where he started at center. That's 0-for-3. Ouch. The best pick of the draft was seventh-round punter Brandon Fields, who had a great season in 2009. When a punter is your best pick, and you blow a top 10 pick, there's only one grade to give.

Grade: F

So what did Mr. Prisco give us immediately following the 2007 draft?

Quote:
Miami Dolphins
Best pick: Second-round center Samson Satele is a power player who will help upgrade an offensive line that needs it.

Questionable move: Passing on Brady Quinn in the first round to take Ted Ginn. It’s not that Ginn isn't a good player, but Quinn is the best quarterback in the draft. They made amends getting John Beck in the second round.

Second-day gem: Fourth-round pick Paul Soliai is a wide-body nose tackle who will help stuff the run.

Overall grade: B. Beck will be a good player, so passing on Quinn might turn out OK. Is Ginn really worth the ninth pick?

Good grade :yay: And that's why Parcells let the coach and his staff go when he took over,he saw the picks they had made then he cleaned house with the players. He did keep Ginn the longest but even he wore out his welcome. IMOP all of those players we got were reaches to me,think we could have gotten Ginn much later,same for Beck and Satelle. This just proves that you need to know more than just offence (Cameron) or d-fence (Bill W),dont even wont to say his name,all he did was ride JJ coat-tails to get the Dolphins coaching job. But anyway,Parcells proves that you have to know both sides of the ball and what will work for what you're putting together.

I am not sure what grade Prisco habded out but Jason Cole of Yahoo said in 2007 of the draft:

Miami Dolphins: Coach Cam Cameron may know and love Ted Ginn Jr., but it's hard to justify taking a skinny (5-foot-11, 178 pounds) receiver with the ninth overall pick. Ginn can run, is a deep threat, played well against top opponents and can return both punts and kickoffs. Still, there's a reason that Cameron got booed by Dolphins fans when he came out to talk about this pick. The fans really wanted Brady Quinn. The Dolphins believe they got a quarterback prospect just as good in the second round with John Beck. Most of the rest of the draft was spent searching for beef along both lines and filling sundry needs, such as punter (Brandon Fields).
Grade: D

OK here is a run down of all many draft grades from 2007...here is what prisco said (he gave a B grade:)

Miami Dolphins

Best pick: Second-round center Samson Satele is a power player who will help upgrade an offensive line that needs it.

Questionable move: Passing on Brady Quinn in the first round to take Ted Ginn. It’s not that Ginn isn’t a good player, but Quinn is the best quarterback in the draft. They made amends getting John Beck in the second round.

Second-day gem: Fourth-round pick Paul Soliai is a wide-body nose tackle who will help stuff the run.

Overall grade: B. Beck will be a good player, so passing on Quinn might turn out OK. Is Ginn really worth the ninth pick?

Post Vinnie Iyer: 2007 NFL Draft "Stinkers"
Guess which Dolphin made the list? Yep, the family.

I am surprised that Jamaal Anderson didn't do more. I remember really liking him pre-draft that year.

Quote:
Stinkers

JaMarcus Russell, QB, LSU
Raiders: Round 1, Pick 1

Russell has redefined "big" quarterback bust and is about to be displaced for good by Jason Campbell in Oakland. He could never get his mechanics or his weight down, with both issues related to work ethic. It was a bad class for QBs overall, with Brady Quinn, John Beck, Drew Stanton and Trent Edwards to follow. It's now on Kolb to save face for the group.
The Raiders aren't too pleased with former No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell's performance.
The Raiders aren't too pleased with former No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell's performance.

Jamaal Anderson, DE, Arkansas
Falcons: Round 1, Pick 8

In the 6-6, 283-pound Anderson, Atlanta was hoping it had its version of Julius Peppers. But with 21Ž2 sacks in 44 career starts, Anderson hasn't been close to the pass rusher the team thought he would be.

Ted Ginn, WR, Ohio State
Dolphins: Round 1, Pick 9

The proof that this didn't work out came fewer than two weeks ago, when Miami was happy to trade him to San Francisco for a fifth-round pick. Although Ginn proved himself as a kickoff returner, he never up lived to his promise as a fast playmaking No. 1 receiver.

Adam Carriker, DT, Nebraska
Rams: Round 1, Pick 13

Carriker has also moved on to his second NFL team, getting shipped to the Redskins more than a week ago in an exchange of late-round picks. He stood out as a rookie, then had an ineffective 2008 before injuries derailed his '09 season. St. Louis now hopes Chris Long, the second overall pick in 2008, can avoid going down the same path.

Justin Harrell, DT, Tennessee
Packers: Round 1, Pick 16

This is another reason defensive tackle is such a hard position to evaluate. Harrell hasn't done much for Green Bay, and now he isn¹t a good fit in its 3-4 scheme under Dom Capers, who has Ryan Pickett and B.J. Raji as his best options to play the nose.
