Well fellow Shouters, here it is. I said I would write a follow up post to my "Past Draft Grade" post and ask about this year's draft, so here we go. Just so everyone knows, I'm not going to go through every draft pick with stats and analyzing them all. I will touch on a few, but we are grading the group as a whole and not certain individuals.
In the first round the Dolphins traded up nine spots to draft what some have called a "Jason Taylor Clone" in Dion Jordan. Now, I wouldn't want to put that kind of pressure on any young kid right out of the sandbox. I like Jordan as a player. I don't like the fact that we had to give up a second round pick to get him. I have not heard one "expert" say this was a good move. We had several holes to fill when we walked into the draft, and using two picks on one guy, especially your first two picks, seems a little counterproductive to me. There was still a very good selection of players available at...

One of the most underrated post draft activities is the chase for undrafted free agents. Teams can find diamonds in the rough by combing though their draft boards and finding out who is left.
According to MiamiDolphins.com, in the everlasting quest for talent, the Dolphins have signed 16 rookie free agents.

The Miami Dolphins had arguably the best off season in NFL this season. They signed Mike Wallace to a big-time contract worth over $60 million dollars. Also the addition of linebacker Daniele Ellerbee formerly of the Baltimore Ravens.
Miami also released linebacker Karlos Dansby, who was a big fan favorite down in south beach. The Dolphins have quickly turned into one of the...
Since the conclusion of the 2013 NFL Draft, we've outlined our thoughts and opinions regarding all nine of the Miami Dolphins selections, especially first round pick Dion Jordan. The general consensus is that Jeff Ireland's aggressive approach to the draft while sticking to his board throughout the entire process will prove to be a success. It was also key that the General...
We've seen this so many times as Dolphins fans, the Dolphins falling short of a win in the 4th quarter. Today, the Dolphins on the field had nothing to do with the Dolphins chances for a 300 million dollar renovation for Sun Life Stadium. After the news was broken by NFL Network's Albert Breer, the bad news is that the Dolphins renovation bill being killed means zero...
The Miami Dolphins needed a Hail Mary to have any hope at hosting a Super Bowl anytime soon. But their effort fell short as time ran out and Florida's legislative session ended just before 7 p.m. on Friday.
South Florida legislators and team officials had pushed throughout the 60-day legislative session to pass a bill that would provide a 350 million upgrade to Sun Life Stadium...
There were some rumors flying around this morning that the Dolphins planned on bringing in free agent quarterback Tim Tebow.
According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, those rumors aren’t true. The Dolphins aren’t interested in Tebow.
Tim Tebow, I ask high ranking Dolphins source? “No … totally untrue.”

The Miami Dolphins had no comment Thursday regarding an internet rumor the team worked out Tim Tebow.
Tebow was released by the New York Jets earlier this week, and word spread on the web that the former University of Florida quarterback took a physical and worked out for the Dolphins.
The Dolphins have a team policy of not commenting on any personnel matters.
The Sun-Sentinel, citing...
The Miami Dolphins don't want Tim Tebow. The Dallas Cowboys don't want him (although Jerry has been known to say one thing and mean the exact opposite). Jacksonville has even made it clear they don't want him.
The Montreal team that has rights to him in the Canadian Football League only kind of wants him (they'd rather keep a 40-year old dude starting--but that...
Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill can't catch a break.Ever since the monumental free-agent signings by general manager Jeff Ireland in the receiver department this offseason, the sophomore signal-caller has been eyed as the make-or-break factor of the 'Fins offense in the upcoming season. Offensive coordinator Mike Sherman isn't cutting him any slack, either...
After shocking the NFL by trading up to the third selection in the 2013 Draft to tab defensive end Dion Jordan, do the Miami Dolphins have another trick up their sleeve involving free agent quarterback Tim Tebow?According to cbssportsline.com and a story printed by Josh Katzowitz, agent Drew Rosenhaus thinks Miami might be the destination of the NFL’s charismatic enigma.The article...
This is the time of year when it is hard to come up with things to talk about. The Dolphins have the rookies coming in this weekend for some non-contact workouts. I am guessing they will introduce them to what to expect when camp opens, run them through a few drills, and maybe pass out the iPads that will have their positional playbook loaded on them. I believe that Dion Jordan will...
New England Patriots, FLAT: The Patriots had a quiet draft. While they did address positions of need, they also failed to make any standout selections. That combined with no first round talent coming in means that the Patriots stock is simply flat. That's okay though, a flat stock at the top of the division isn't a bad thing.
Miami Dolphins, UP: The move to trade up...

A majority of the excitement that came along with the NFL Draft took place within the AFC East, but it's the teams' moves since then that have been grabbing the spotlight of late. Whether it was the Miami Dolphins moving up to No. 3 for Dion Jordan, the Buffalo Bills at No. 16 with the first round's only quarterback, or Geno Smith dropping down to the New York Jets at...
