So I was just thinking..
What if the Miami Dolphins ended up acquiring Mike Hart and Terrence Taylor in the offseason, and drafted BG in the first round, then later getting Greg matthews(they need a UM receiver) and The Space Emperor too????
Braylon is a free agent.
Jets will probably resign him.
yea but the jets suck
Detroit Lions: round one, Russell Okung, round two, Brandon Graham, round three, Donovan Warren, round four, Zoltan Mesko, round five, Brandon Minor, round six, David Moosman, round seven, Stevie Brown.
2010 - 7-9 baby.
Umm... punter in round four? That would be typical Lions.
As inconceivable as Zoltan is, and he is, that would be an epically poor draft choice.
(Yes, I know that post was not serious. I really just wanted to point out that Zoltan is still inconceivable, even after the Ray Guy was shamefully stolen from him)
Zoltan wouldn't be just a punter he would also be able to fill the role as Space Emperor.
I consider myself a Lions fan but as a Michigan Man there is no way I want to see any UofM players on the Lions. You always hear the talk about how good Barry Sanders "could have been", well there you go. For the sake of their careers, let Miami and the Indy have them.
LOL beat me to it..
anyone who wishes such harm upon UM players has a date with Ms. Karma lined up soon.
Donovan Warren will not be available in the 3rd round.
Well, and this is just from a pure statistical standpoint, I believe that it means they would all be in Miami.
I was just talking to a friend about something very similar earlier tonight.
"If enough UM players went to a given team could it actually get us interested in following the NFL more closely?"
The conclusion was a firm "maybe".
Assuming they didn't become divas.
You could assemble a halfway decent team with all U of M players in the NFL. They would probably lose because of a lack of depth, but still be better than the lions.
Are you kidding? That would be a GREAT team! Brady, Henne, Manningham, Edwards, Avant, Hart, Long, Hutchinson, not to mention everyone on defense...
If they can play well at the pro level, then I would love to see them on the Dolphins.
The CBS Sports Mock Draft has Brandon Graham going first round to Miami, well at least one of them does. The other analyst has him ending up in Arizona. Alan Branch anyone? As far as punter goes, there is good news and bad news. Bad news first. 1) He went to MSU 2)His average is sixth in the league. 3)His contract doesn't expire until the end of the 2011 season. Now for the GOOD news. 1) His number of kicks which land inside the 20 (21) is tied for 16th in the league AND... well yeah that's the only thing that would suggest he's leaving. I'd like to see a super-Miami team, but really I'd be happy with Zoltan in Detroit, or anywhere that isn't the Redskins really.
A Michigan Man owns the Dolphins. May as well stack it with Michigan Men
and I know that one position that Parcells and Ireland want to get younger at is OLB. I can definitely see them looking at Graham in round 1. I would LOVE to see them grab him. Barring injury, I can't help but see him being a very good pro.
