I just watched him in a press conference on NFL network and he said "He's the number 1 pick in the draft. He's a guy that you know is going to be a pillar for your defense for the next ten years."

The media called him on it, and he said "Freudian slip." It was genuine. Dolphins are picking defense with the first pick.

My guess is Chris Long. I hope Carl Peterson is wiping feces out of his britches.

He'd drag you down to his level then beat you with experience.

This is the genious of Carl.

We'll trade Allen for the Viking's 1st round pick.....and then we'll package that with the #5 pick to trade up and grab Chris Long.

Wasn't Gholston on their short list of guys they were negotiating with? IMO, he'd be a damn good rush backer in the 3-4.

And then pay Chris Long 50 million?

So we save 20 million...and get a player who might be as good as the guy who was gonna get 70 million.

Woo.

Woo.

And lose a 1st round pick at another position. I actually had the same thought independently.

That's why last year I said I wanted two firsts before I even THOUGHT about trading Larry Johnson. You would need one first to replace him.

I feel the same way about Jared. What's the ****ing point?

It's about money and ego and nothing else. This town isn't big enough for Carl Peterson and Jared Allen. (Whitlock will steal this line!)

Turk McBride is better than Gholston? Have you seen either guy play? Come on now!???

I think Miami goes with Chris Long. That slip was for real. I think Long is more of an impact player than the other defensive players at the top of the draft.

It would be great for us if they take Gholston.
