2.43 Brandon LaFell
Dwayne Bowe-clone who could be the true #1 option at wideout that they need.


It's still early... but I'm not sure I like either of these guys lol.

Paul is a talent but he is still raw. I'm not a fan of LaFell either.

It says he's a Dwayne Bowe clone. Why would you want that?

Pierre Paul apparently has a learning dis-ability and is dumber than Jason Allen.

Pass.

LaFell is legit big fast guy, you might say he's a "6'3" guy with speed" but the pierre paul pick is more than questionable

Sorry for picking on you today, but there is no "-" in words that have "dis" in front of them.

I never know when to put one and when not to. It doesn't look right though as "disability", to me.

IT can say he is a Dwayne Bowe clone all it wants. There are receivers I like better than LaFell, especially in the 2nd round.

If you like him, fine.

Phins Rock, that's a pretty crude comment in regards to Paul. He has a learning disability, but that does not mean he can't learn.

Plus, you don't have to be a Rhodes Scholar to play football.

My biggest issue with Jason is he is raw as a player at DE, and now you want to possibly convert him to a 3-4 OLB. If this pick were in the 20's, it might be worht the risk. But at #12, no. I would rather reach for Brandon Graham or Dan Williams if Miami cannot trade down.

I knew that would come out a little wrong. I didn't mean to be crude and be like, he has a learning disability, he's worthless, and all that...But certainly when you have that type of an issue, and your going to try and convert to 34 OLB.....I just don't see it happening.

I can see it now.....pass up on Dez Bryant and then reach for Pierre-Paul because Mclain is off the board already.....disaster. I will pray that mock is being mocked by Parcells and company right now.

I pray this doesn't happen, this is the same type of mistake made over and over that put us in a hole.

This isn't the same Dolphins we've seen in the past...a smart front office. McClain should be there.

There is no gauruntee that neither McClain or Bryant will be there at #12. And yes, I also think the front office personnel in place now are a smart group of individuals.
