10 picks now, thats good, too bad Wilkerson refused to show up for the broncos, then Fins would have 11. I hope we find s good punter though, cause he might be a busy guy!

I say we can find a punter any time. Bring in Turk. As far as Carl Peterson. I would make him sweet and not give him anything if he is going to play this game with a 37 year old QB.

Get Green with a late round pick. Use your first round pick for either Quinn or O/linemen.

Having 10 picks not only will allow us to add youth to our football team, but it also will give us a great deal of flexibility over the course of the draft."
Mueller keeps indicating that the draft is the answer to all these holes he is creating. He had better be right not just for his sake but for the Dol fans who will suffer the next few years if he is wrong. Donnie is young, decent and fits the current Dolphin team player profile. This choice will be a waste if we turn around and spend any pick on another punter in the draft. Lets count the holes right now punter 1, QB 2, DE 2, OL 2, TE 1, RB 1, CB or S
1, WR 1, KR 1. Too many holes and not enough picks unless he trades back in the draft. If he trades up in this years draft and gives away multible picks or give picks in the draft for Green we are in bad shape.

Look at it the other way around what does a bad punter do to a team. Well ask those Dolphins who played when Mark Royals was punting for us and they sure were not happy campers. Well we are about to see real quick with the draft and 2nd round of free agency coming up if Muellers is on the right path. If not this season will be a joke. Highlights for America's funniest videos.

Randy:
what about looking for a punter in Free Agenccy like bring back Matt Turk until we can find another punter or sign Turk as a Free Agent since we couldn't match the offer sheet from the rams Turk was an average punter until we got Donnie I don't trust the punter from the Cowboys is there one in the draft which we can pick up?
What is the latesst talks with KC about a deal for Trent Green since Daunte Culpepper doesn't have clearence until another 2 months to take part in mini camps, and QB School? Make a deal with KC right before the draft or by the end of this week so Dolfans can start chanting the Miami Dolphins song in the stands again at home games and get a QB with 20,000 + passing yards again in "Trent Green" is like Marino with a good arm it wont take Trent that long to learn the system that Cam Cameron is installing in Miami he and Cameron were with Redskins togher and Terry Shea and Trent Green have been together for 5 years in KC@

Fantastic! Getting ANY draft pick for a punter is like stealing! Punters are a dime a dozen...Now if we can only get something for Culpepper... mmmm..
