As usual, the Dolphins told us that the draft went exactly as planned, and they got what they wanted.
The furious enigma (Ireland) said of the day "We got a lot better today" which is kind of amusing, since really the later round picks are used to fill out a roster, and usually do nothing more than play a special teams role. Then again, if I think back to that Patriots game last season where special teams was like watching the clown act at the circus, I guess signing frisbee dogs would have elicited the same response.
The Bootin' Bull said "We addressed our needs." Never mind that they actually needed a QB of course. No, their needs were to ensure that they could get a couple of blockers and hand the rock off to a big back to get them 3 yards, while the entire defense stands within 3 yards of the line of srimmage and dares the Dolphins to pass it (and even if they do try, Henne will get sacked or throw a pick 6).
Look, on paper, maybe the Dolphins get a B for their draft because they addressed general needs. But this organization is likely to find a way to not use them effectively....
I'd personally give them a C, because of that. I have no faith that they'll get any better as a result of the draft.
I said in a comment to a previous post that I know they had a lot of needs to fill, and you can't do that in one draft. But remember that this is year 4 for "Parcells guys" and they jettisoned everyone who was here before them; that is a problem of their own doing. By the 4th year, they should be in a position to turn the corner, not looking to fill so MANY gaping holes.
