  1. Dang Issac Tyson went to work. I haven't seen a QB run that many times very often.
  2. Hit it 100% for WVU. The corner situation went from solid and experienced to a big question mark. It's super frustrating, especially for a team who's primed to take another step towards contention, to lose a guy who ended up being drafted at the end of the 7th round. I did mix up our wideouts a little bit. I let Christian Nash line up as the #1 dude for the 2nd team offense. I think this will be beneficial, because I can see how he would do as the #1 guy, and it also evens out the teams pretty well. I also gave one of the 3.5 guys to that team so that both teams have 2 decent weapons to utilize. Learning about the x,y, and z receiver thing. I'm toying with putting Easley at #2 and Nash at #1 on the depth chart, and sliding Easley to slot when there are 3 WRs on the field.
  3. Phillp Moore is a Will and I play him at MLB with the Dolphins in a 4-3. From what I can tell he's been fairly successful at the role and seems to be a borderline pro-bowl type of player. I'm not sure I would make this move with many other Will ILB's though. In college Moore was a tackle machine so I felt that he was more of a balanced linebacker than anything. I think it's going to be very player specific.
  4. The Miami Dolphins send: QB Rickie Shaffer 6-0 200 R Houston [Scrambling] [+2] 75 RB Gabe Ciamo 6-0 174 R Toledo [Speed] [-2] 80 WR Jermaine Jennings 5-11 194 R Appalachian State [Speed] [+1] 79 TE Caleb Holman 6-4 194 R Ohio [Receiving] [0] 69 OG Edward Meyer 6-2 259 R Oklahoma State [Run Blocking] 78 OG Max Ordonez 6-3 307 R Ole Miss [Run Blocking] [0] 74 DE Stephen Monahan 6-3 268 R Minnesota [Blitz] [0/C] 66 DE Mahamadou Chavis 6-0 250 R Virginia Tech [Blitz] [0] 65 DT Kevin Best 6-2 284 R Virginia Tech [1-Gap] [+1] 66 FS Jeremy Whitehead 5-11 206 R LSU [Zone Coverage] 79 SS Antonio Jackson 6-1 202 R Bowling Green [Zone Coverage] [+1] 80 SS Andrew Reaves 5-11 177 R Oklahoma [Zone Coverage] [+1/C] 70
  5. Oh wow - totally missed this! I prefer having a Target guy as my #1. I really like having that possession type guy that I can rely on to run good routes and be a safe target for my quarterback. I think ideally for my #2 guy I would like to have a burner to stretch the defense. I feel like it brings out a good combination to have that target guy as the #1 weapon and the speed guy at #2. For my slot guy I typically prefer a smaller, shiftier type receiver. For my current WVU team my best WR is a 5'9" speed WR, so I play him at #1 since he's my most talented player, but list him as the slot also. The intention is that on 3 wide sets he will move inside to the slot, I think that's probably his best position and allows to take advantage of mismatches. For #4 I would probably want a target guy to bring balance to the set.
  6. Miami Dolphins schedule vs. San Francisco 49ers @ Seattle Seahawks @ Washington Redskins vs. Los Angeles Chargers
  7. I'm still torn about how I feel about the trade up to #1. McLean was for sure the right pick, but I am not sure the Giants roster is good enough to miss out on the opportunity to add two of the top ten prospects. Having a quarterback on a rookie deal is a good way to build up a team quickly (see Buffalo), but I also am not sure if the Giants currently are in a good enough cap position to really take advantage of that contract. However, at the end of the day if McLean ends up as a top 5 quarterback then no one will remember the trade up to get him. I found Hutton to be pretty interesting prospect, so it all could end up just fine.
  8. Davie, FL - The previous weekend saw the 2023 NFLHC draft come and go with a flurry of excitement. The Dolphins made 5 selections in the draft and are excited to introduce those selections to the fans. The rookies will be traveling to Miami over the next few weeks to begin rookie minicamps and OTAs. SS Antonio Jackson 6-1 202 R Bowling Green [Zone Coverage] [+1] 80 2022 Stats: 9 Tackles, 1 PD 2021 Stats: 49 Tackles, 1 TFL, 6 INT, 8 PD Antonio Jackson is a prospect that was flying up everyone's draft boards after his impressive performance at the combine and during his pro day. The 2021 MAC Defensive player of the year had one of the more impressive seasons in recent memory which lead opposing coaches to do everything in their power to avoid him in 2022. Jackson showed impressive athleticism for the position at the combine running a 4.52 40 yard dash. Draft analyst Adam Schefter projected Jackson to have a very high likelihood of success and according to head coaching consultant @vtgorilla "We are excited to have someone with Antonio's skill set and are excited to pair him with our new athletic free safety Michael Bryan. We also think there's a lot of potential in playing Jackson with current strong safety Michael Williams in some big nickel type packages." WR Jermaine Jennings 5-11 194 R Appalachian State [Speed] [+1] 79 2022 Stats: 46 catches for 492 yards and 4 TDs Another player that really helped themselves during the combine was the speedster Jermaine Jennings out of Appalachian State. Jennings ran a blistering 4.29 40 yard dash which was the fastest among wide receivers, and put up impressive agility numbers in the shuttle and 3 cone. When asked about Jennings, Head Coach/GM smckenz3 said "We basically sprinted up to the podium to take Jermaine, we love the athleticism he displayed in college and at the combine. Right away it gives us a weapon in the slot and someone who should grow into a #2 wide receiver opposite J.C. His big play ability should bode well for us right out of the gate." RB Gabe Ciamo 6-0 174 R Toledo [Speed] [-2] 80 2022 Stats: 302 Carries for 1,848 yards, 6.12 YPC and 22 touchdowns Considered one of the more controversial picks of the draft the Dolphins selected the speedy workhorse out of Toledo Gabe Ciamo. The back was one of only a handful of full time starting backs who averaged over 6 yards per carry for the entire season. Originally considered a potential first round pick the selection was met with harsh criticism from the draft panel, when asked about the move smckenz said "We felt that Gabe's value had reached a point of being underrated, especially with the next to last pick in the 3rd round. Gabe put up ridiculous numbers while at Toledo and had showed a good amount of athleticism at the combine. We have checked out his knee issues and our medical staff is confident it will not be an issue going forward. Everything pointed to him being a 3rd round selection and we were happy to get him at the end of the round. We think he will provide immediate value as a 3rd down back to help alleviate some of Marcus' workload during the regular season." FS Jeremy Whitehead 5-11 206 R LSU [Zone Coverage] 79 2022 Stats: 14 tackles, 1 INT Jeremy is another player who was hyped as a potential 1st round selection heading into the 2022 season. Coaching consultant @vtgorilla raved about the potential of Whitehead in the future. "With the signing of Michael Bryan in the off-season, we felt that we had addressed our immediate need at the free safety position, however; when we saw that Jeremy was still available at the end of the 4th round we felt the value was too good too pass up. We expect him to play mostly special teams this season as he adapts to the professional game, but expect he can grow into a starter down the road." OG Edward Meyer 6-2 259 R Oklahoma State [Run Blocking] 78 Edward Moyer is another guy we felt was a fantastic value pick with our 4th round compensation pick. Meyer helped pave the way for Oklahoma State superstar Amral Brown, and should provide great depth on the Dolphin offensive line. Head Coach/GM smckenz3 said "We think Ed can grow into a starter down the road, and we are always looking to get younger especially in the trenches." In other draft weekend moves the Dolphins went out and got punter Graham Chandler from the Washington Redskins. Coaching Consultant @vtgorilla raved about Chandler's potential "We were one of the bottom teams in the league for punting last season, and we felt that Graham showed a lot of growth over the off-season. We wanted to bring him in and give him a chance to compete for the starting job." As the rookies prepare to head to Miami for rookie mini camps we should get a clearer picture of who will be in line to contribute right away. However one thing that is clear is the front office prioritized athleticism this off-season. As usual thanks to @HAFFnHAFF for making my fancy graphics. These things are fantastic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwBS6QGsH_4
  9. I really like everything about this class guys. I love Beckett, I think he's going to be a great QB.

  11. Seems like a good pick for Tampa. Feels like he'll fit well with their QB.
  12. The Chargers were on the search for a will LB. I feel like they did a good job of getting good value to move back and fill a need they wanted.
  13. Crap - provide both for number 3. I seem to be terrible at reading the whole question. lol
