  • Question about Parcells and the Dolphin's Draft

    Parcell's love for drafting defensive players in the first round is no secret. Mock Drafts and "Team Needs" articles all over the web have 3-4 OLB as our pick and primary concern. As a Dolphins fan, I believe this to be true but I haven't been able to help but notice that there has been zero mention about Cameron Wake, the CFL beast that the Dolphins aquired about a month ago. We have no idea what Parcells has in mind for him in terms of playing time, but every article after the aquisition had experts saying he was of starting caliber. Does this not change anything about which direction Parcells takes in the draft?

    Not at all. He is just as unknown as a mid to late round pick. No one knows how his skillset will translate in the NFL.

    <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
    <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

      I see WR as being a pretty big concern for the Dolphins as well. With the great WR class this year it wouldn't totally shock me if Parcells went that way.

        I don't think anyone cares much about Wake, just because he was a beast in the CFL doesn't even mean he's gonna make the dolphin's practice squad, let alone make the team and have the value of a 1st rounder.

          While I love my CFL, and it has developed some quarterbacks and defensive backs, I don't think anyone has ever gone on to become a productive front 7 player in the NFL.

              Or both. You could take the WR in round 1 and hope that in round 2 you have a chance at Matthews, Sintum and Barwin.

                We signed him to a four year deal I believe, I'm fairly sure he'll make more than just the practice squad. However, I don't think he'll start right away, and he'll have to prove his worth on special teams. I think he'll effect our later picks a lot more than our first and second rounders.

                    I think the Dolphins nab Clay Matthews if he's there. Parcells loves multi-gen players, and Matthews got where he's at with hard work and determination on top of turning out to have some great physical and athletic gifts... Perfect Parcells player.

                      Bertrand Berry turned out alright.

                      As for Wake, I remember hearing of his 45' vertical. Dude's an athletic freak I'd certainly watch out for. He may not start right away, but he should contribute at some point in the season.

                        The Eagles signed two CFL guys to 3 year deals a month ago, and there is very little chance they effect the Eagles' draft plans. That 4 year contract can probably just as easily be voided if he doesn't pan out...

                          One of those guys, Byron Parker, I used to see around my campus a lot where the Argos practice. He's another athletic freak (43' vertical and NCAA slam dunk champ), but unlike Wake I don't see him amounting to very much.

                            Both seem like Training camp competition if you ask me, but Parker does seem like he might make a practice squad possibly...
