With the 8th pick in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, The Miami Dolphins select Courtney Upshaw DE/LB Alabama
I know this may be a reach to most people, as he isn't really thought of this highly most places I look... but this kid is really special. He can rush off the edge, set the edge...he impacts all facets of the game and I see him transitioning very well to the NFL.
He is also scheme diverse and the Dolphins will seemingly use a hybrid 4-3/3-4 alignment.
This may well break my streak of nailing my first round picks after taking Julio jones at 6 last year and taking Weatherspoon for Atlanta the year before, but I think it's worth it.
Next up is Carolina.
I'll send the pm right now.
