And the selection is...
Posted by David Kennedy
As we hear it, Jason Allen was one of Nick's top guys. Whether that means his top 5, or his next eschelon, we don't know. But, because he was available, Nick stayed put and picked a guy he wanted in the first round.
Jason becomes the first db drafted by Miami in the first round since 2001, when they drafted....Jamar Fletcher. I gotta believe Nick is a better talent evaluator than Dave ever was, so I'm thinking this will work out fine. All of the draftniks raved about him over at ESPN.
I did note that there were a boatload of good o-lineman, wrs, and rbs still available when Miami picked, but there were scant few d-lineman or linebackers.
So, the Phins now have a glut of "Allens" in the defensive backfield. Okay, its actually only 2 of them today...
