Past Dolphins Draft Analysis

Posted on: April 4, 2008 10:44 pm
Year Round Pick Name Pos. My remarks

2007 1 9 Ted Ginn, Jr. WR/KR A reach at 9; showed promise as a returner; needs refining as WR

2007 2 40 John Beck QB Was held in high regard by past regime; will Sparano and Parcells think the same?

2007 2 60 Samson Satele C/G Possibly the best selection in the Dolphins í07 draft.

2007 3 71 Lorenzo Booker RB Played sparingly as a rookie but has the speed to make an impact like Darren Sproles (Chargers) or Leon Washington (Jets)

2007 4 108 Paul Soliai NT/DT Possible rotational guy at NT/DT; still raw

2007 6 181 Reagan Mauia FB Instant starter; a beast; will improve over the years

2007 6 199 Drew Mormino G/C Season cut shirt due to injury in preseason

2007 7 219 Kelvin Smith LB Only draft pick not to make opening day roster; practice squad player

2007 7 225 Brandon Fields P Had a wonderful rookie season; Donnie Jones who?

2007 7 238 Abraham Wright DE/LB A clone of Joey Porter without the attitude; solid backup at rush linebacker in 3-4

2006 1 16 Jason Allen S/CB Continues to shuffle positions, hurting his development; nothing more than a nickelback

2006 3 82 Derek Hagan WR Decent #2 option, better suited as a 3rd receiver; drops too many balls

2006 4 114 Joe Toledo OT Injuries have derailed progression

2006 7 212 Fred Evans DT Released in summer 2007 for off the field incident; last on Vikings team

2006 7 226 Rodrique Wright DT Massive potential that hasnít been utilized

2006 7 233 Devin Aromashodu WR Last seen catching passes from Peyton Manning

2005 1 2 Ronnie Brown RB Great start to 2007 derailed by knee injury, future in question

2005 2 46 Matt Roth DE A steady performer that canít seem to make it to the next level

2005 3 70 Channing Crowder LB Heir apparent to Zach Thomas, has shown flashes of brilliance and decisions that are mind


2005 4 104 Travis Daniels CB Strong rookie season but has declined since

2005 5 162 Anthony Alabi OT No more than a backup

2005 7 216 Kevin Vickerson DT Tore up the final season of NFL Europa; no longer in the NFL

2004 1 19 Vernon Carey OT Starting LT, better suited as RT or guard

2004 4 102 Will Poole CB Showed promise as a rookie; injury derailed career and is no longer in the NFL

2004 5 160 Tony Bua LB Special teams stud; out of football

2004 6 174 Rex Hadnot G/C Has risen up the depth chart and has started the last two years; has a mean streak

2004 7 221 Tony Pape G No longer in the NFL

2004 7 222 Derrick Pope LB Career backup and special teams player

2003 2 49 Eddie Moore LB Injured all of rookie year; later traded and now out of football

2003 3 78 Wade Smith OT Surprise starter as a rookie; regressed a year later and lost starting job; currently with the Jets

2003 3 87 Taylor Whitley G Played sparingly with Miami; last with the Redskins

2003 5 156 Donald Lee TE Not given a real shot with the Dolphins; catching passes from Brett Favre now

2003 5 169 J.R. Tolver WR The original Wes Welker; out of football

2003 6 181 Corey Jenkins LB Now playing for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the CFL

2003 6 209 Tim Provost OT Never played a regular season game in NFL

2003 6 213 Yeremiah Bell S Best player from this draft; only playmaker in Dolphins secondary in 2006; torn Achilles in 2007; set to be a free agent

2003 7 248 Davern Williams DT Limited action with Miami; last with the New York Giants

it'll take a few years to fully replenish the roster, but the dolphins should win 4-7 games this year, and 8 or so the next.

wow--thanks for putting it all on one page.  Now one can see why they were so bad the past few years.  7 guys form 2004 and 2003 are not even in the NFL!  Let's hope this year helps us stop the downward  trend!
