NFL DRAFT TODAY

Starting at 4pm we will probably(-you never know what else may come along) be blogging live for the NFL draft. 

Right now, we predict this: with the 25th pick of the 2009 NFL Draft, your  AFC East Division Champion Miami Dolphins select Everette Brown, Defensive End,  Florida State.  Brown is an explosive pass rusher who plays a number 5 technique and will probably be an outside linebacker in the NFL. 

Football lingo- 5 Technique. On defense, imagine the spot opposite the center is zero. Moving outward, the 1 technique would be the spot between the center and the guard. The 2 technique would be the defensive spot over the guard. The 3 technique is the defensive spot between the guard and the tackle. The 4 technique would be the spot over the tackle, and the 5 technique would be the classic defensive end rushing the outside shoulder of the tackle.  Jason Taylor was the classic 5 technique outside pass rusher and Brown could fill Taylor's role for the Fins. 

For those of you who care, on the offensive side, football terminology uses letters instead of numbers, starting with A over the center, and moving outward,  "b gap". "c gap", etc.

Other possible picks:  ILB Lames Laurinaitis, Ohio State,  Darrius Butler, CB Connecticut,  Larry English, DE Northern Illinois (another 5 technique player who will be an OLB in the pros) and Vontae Davis,  CB Illinois. Davis has perhaps the most upside of any defensive corner in the draft but character issues may make enough teams pass on him so that he drops to the Fins. Otherwise Davis is a top 15 pick. 

What Parcells will not do is draft a WR in the first round unless lightening strikes and Michael Crabtree falls to the Fins , which is a near impossibility. 


PS. The high today should be 87. Summer is here. Yuck.

BREAKING NEWS:

Ada Pozo resigned from the bench so she can enter the NFL draft. I have her going in the later rounds, most likely on the 2nd day, as a CB, although she probably only will be a special-teamer or come in on nickel/dime packages.

Time will only tell if this decision will back-fire.
