MikeLowell Posted April 16, 2008 Share Posted April 16, 2008 The word on the street is that Michigan offensive tackle Jake Long doesn't want to play for the Dolphins, who continue to negotiate with him as the first overall draft choice. There's a special honor in being the first pick so Long's agents continue to talk. Of course, there is a deadline to these contract talks and then the Dolphins will move onto the next person on their board. Apparently, it isn't Virginia's Chris Long. What is unusual about the top of the draft is that no team has declared to be after Boston College quarterback Matt Ryan. I think the best player is Arkansas running back Darren McFadden because not only is he a tough inside runner, but he also has game-breaking receiving skills. It is an unusual combination for an every-down runner. McFadden has the potential to be more dynamic than Adrian Peterson, Minnesota's rookie of the year. LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey figures to be selected in the top three, but there are many teams in the bottom two-thirds of the draft that have serious medical concerns about the stress fracture in his right leg. Some teams believe he will need surgery within two years on that leg. But the teams that love Dorsey seem not to care about this medical red flag. http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/8036808...s-on-for-Pacman Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
