Just because he was highly rated in the 2006 draft, doesn't mean the past 2 years mean nothing. Why are we talking about a player who hasn't been successful in the "NFL" competing for a job?

Another loser! Jason (don't know where he is Allen) and slow and can't catch a tree trunk Hagan) I'm sure they're gonna be special LMAO. You losers have to keep draftin the same positions each year cause you can't get it right the year before! Mama Mia!

Saban was a horrible judge of how a college player would project into the NFL.
Bill Parcells is one of, if the the best evaluater of the exact same maturation process.
We, as Dolphin fans, are blessed to have football.....NFL Football....people running the organization again.
Kudos to Wayne......all he wants and has EVER wanted is to be the owner of the Super Bowl Champion Miami Dolphins....
Wayne...here's a sincere thank you to you from all the loyal fans who hope you get your ring.....YOU DESERVE IT!!!!!!!
Predictions....
Round 1.....Dolphins trade down to #3 as Atlanta secures #1 for Matt Ryan. Dolphins swap to #3 in 1st AND pick up a 2nd and a 5th in this year's draft from the desperate Falcons!!!
Dolphins select the Long that is left, or Dorsey or Gholston at Atlanta's #3 1st round slot.
Dolphins then trade Jason Taylor on draft day and secure a low #1 or high #2, and possibly a 5th for Jason.
We draft OL's, LB's, DB's, DL's, and WR's and Safeties with our 4-5 picks in the top 100 and IMMEDIATELY rebuild our team to a 2-3 year window to the Super Bowl!!!!!
All hail Bill and Wayne!!!!!!!

Example of another total miss in the draft - Allen never did squat - I wonder if big tuna keeps him on the team.

I hope our draft this year goes better.

I'll give you this much you are a true optimist. I only wish this is the way it works out and anything is possable but it's not probable. Miami has to go into the draft expecting to have the #1 pick and this time I hope they choose the right guy whom ever it is.

As for Allen the jury is still out. He did play a larger role last year and seems to have nose for the football. But at this time he is still a disappointment, that has seen little action because Sabin picked an injured player.

Allen is a perfect example of what I hope "was" wrong with the franchise. A slew of amatures in the professional world of football, that were clueless as to how fix this team. Better to say in my terms, the team was being run by a bunch of morons. That were paid handsomely to do so.

Saban said he contemplated trading up to select Oregon defensive tackle Haloti Ngata but ultimately decided the asking price of a third-round draft choice was too costly.

shoulda, woulda, coulda

Okay, why are we re-living the past mistakes... New Regime, new draft, new offense, new everything... I do like it now with Parcels, and have to go with the faith that they will fix this mess that the other coaches/GM's have messed up in the past... In Bill I do trust... So let's not speculate and guess who they'll pick at No. 1. Let's just enjoy the ride until the first mini camps start... We shall see where our D-phins are at...

Highjackers!!!

It's a cool bar at the flagler airport...on Route 100 (Moody)about a mile west of that exit on I-95. Mile marker 284 I think.

The airport's the size of the one on the show "WINGS", but the bar owner is a Phinatic, and has the game all over the place, with about 60-80 Phin fans every game.

Food is good, and the beer is cold and reasonably priced.

Yes...I AM optimistic, and no, I don't think we'll get a bite to trade out of #1.....EXCEPT from Atlanta or maybe...maybe....Dallas.

Go Phins...all hail Billy P.

Just reading the names of players in this article made me sick. Is it any surprise we have the worst record in the NFL?

poor draft by Saban. maybe the worst in Phins history since the mid 80's Bosa debacle or Sammie Smith at #9.
