Harvey, this is the 2nd time I've had to tell you how to spell this guy's name. You are supposedly a professional journalist, so I would think spelling a person's name right should be relatively routine. Clint S-I-N-T-I-M. It's a pretty short last name, and it's not phonetically deceiving either. I'm calling the Sentinel later and directly asking for your job. You are easily the worst sports writer in all of south Florida, possibly the entire country.

Th FO dropped the ball on this pick. The guy was guaranteed to be a free agent because nobody else was going to pick him.

They could have used the pick on somebody with more upside who would not be available after the draft (WR Marko Mitchell or DT Jean Francouise) and then signed this guy as a FA.

Blown call if you ask me.

I've followed this kid all throughout his college career and he makes plays happen. Just because he's not a big name from a big school doesn't mean a thing. The Dolphins are dang lucky to have him.
