  1. Dolphins traded away Any opportunity to draft in the top ten for two bad players what is the sense in this futile waist of time they still act as though they have the 8th pk

    • I don’t think the deal was that? Are Alonso and Maxwell top players at their positions? No, but they are starter-caliber players and the Dolphins were able to get both in exchange for moving down 5 spots in the draft. Also the team should be doing its due diligence in looking at all guys…you never know who is going to drop to you. Leonard Williams was widely regarded as the best prospect in last years draft yet he fell all the way to 6.

  2. Isn’t Jones a linebacker?

    • Luke Adams

      Yep, that’s been fixed, thanks.

    Players fall all the time, ask the Packers (Aaron Rodgers)! All teams should at least look into 1st round guys!
