    It won't happen- I think Raiders= Good might happen before but i don't think that Long will play for the next 100 years

    My mock is still good so far. :icon_tease:

    You might still win the Mock Draft because that is only 1 selection and there is 30 to go. Buck you won last year so this might be another year that you win it.

    To stay on topic here I think Jake Long will help the Dolphins O-Line troubles and be part of a solid protection wall for any QB that will be the Dolphins . I know that was vague but right now it is all that there is.

    This is a good way to move out of Mediocrity. I wonder if they would lay their 2 and 3 on us for another #1? The choices would be high enough in the rounds to do us some good.

    I think they have to many holes to fill to move up.

    I'm guessing its gonna take having a player or two sitting there when we pick that a couple teams want. Possibly like brian brohm or someone else.

    Gad I hope so. We'd clean up if we could get an early 2nd rounder and 3rd rounder in a trade down. Come on down good backup running back , o-tackle, or possibly a cb. Though I've got to think rb and o-tackle are on the top of the list.

    I don't know about you guys but I always liked finding out who was going #1 on the day of the draft....not 4 days early. Even if it is a no brainer. Maybe I'm alone on this one.

    They now have a second number one. If we don't have someone we really, really want at our pick, they might be willing to shed some picks to move up and simplify their draft. KC looks to have more choices than they can effectively use. This many pics could blow a massive hole in the cap now and when all the new picks come up for a second contract at roughly the same time. If there is a player they really want, who knows what we could get.
