Draft Over Phins Move On To The Undrafted


As the draft closed yesterday, the coverage networks focused on players who might get drafted and players that would not.  While I contemplate my final grade and opinions on the first draft for Jeff Ireland and Bill Parcells, the duo have not finished shopping.  With the draft over, it is time to move on to the undrafted signings.

The Miami Dolphins got off to a quick start, as did all teams, but just as quickly slowed down.  This is the list so far:

Kelly Poppinga – LB – Brigham Young

Davone Bess – WR – Hawaii

Jayson Foster - QB – Georgia Southern

Mike Byrne – OT – Delaware

Dan Gore – OT – Boise St.

Dan Carpenter – K – Montana

After the draft Jeff Ireland made a brief appearance and talked about two of the drafted rookies.  Ireland said that 4th round guard Shawn Murphy will play on the right side and that Jalen Parmale is penciled in as the 3rd running back.

The Dolphins are surely going to be busy over the next few days as they iron out the roster and await veteran cuts at the end of May.

    Will they find a diamond ?

    Davone Bess could be a nice pickup…Think we need to bring in a few more WR’s since ours quite frankly aren’t very good…Should have taken the chance on guys like Leggett, DJ Hall, Darnell Jenkins…

    Carpenter is a legit PK and has a chance to battle even for the number 1.  Good pick up.

    I agree with Carpenter, there have been a lot of rumors about Feely being axed for whatever reason, and Bill loves to hate on kickers…must be his outlet for anger…LOL.  I wouldnt be surprised to see Feely gone and one of the other guys on the roster at seasons beginning.

    Is it just me or did we forget how crappy our secondary has been. We didn’t draft any secondary talent and apparently we haven’t signed any rookie free agents in the secondary either. Maybee we do trade JT for to Philly for Lito shepard or something like that.
