  • Jake Long Looking Like Going #1 To Fins

    SI.com's Peter King reports that the Dolphins have given Jake Long a deadline to agree to a contract that would make him the No. 1 overall pick.

    "King says Long is the only player Miami has seriously negotiated with so far. If Long lets the deadline pass, the 'Fins are expected to turn their attention to Vernon Gholston. Long is seemingly at very little risk of falling out of the top three, so he has some leverage"

    Not a big fan of Peter King and everything he reports, but wow. I'd love for this to happen.

      I agree, I think this is just going to be used as leverage to sign Chris Long.

        I dunno it could be some sort of smoke screen, but the more and more I hear the more I think they might be taking Jake Long. I agree with most of you that Chris Long would be the better pick. But I'm hearing too much that is making me think they are gonna take Jake.

          So is Chris Long's agent, the Fins are basically going to blackmail them into signing before the draft.

            So when this gets completed today, does that give the right to the rams to start negotiations w/ chris long ( or whomever they want to select) and on down the line? Wouldnt that be interesting if the top 5 were selected and signed before the draft!

              I'll give you major props if that is in fact what happens. Only a few more days will tell...

                Boo, that would be boring. I hope we hear nothing more about this and the 1st pick of the draft has some mystery to it.

                  I just think the Dolphins came out with way too much interest way too early with Jake Long and I find it HIGHLY suspicious they have no interest in Chris Long.

                  Seems like it is "too good to be true" for Jake Long.

                    I'd prefer Chris to be signed before the draft.

                      Parcells has done all this before. Nothing new for him. He will talk to two or three guys getting closer to a deal with eachone before getting to the guy he wants.

                        I think the pick will be Jake Long.

                        He is the best Tackle prospect in a long time, even though Matt disagrees with me, he is superior to even Joe Thomas.

                          Chris Long has to be the #1. They'd be nuts not to. He's the high motor, high talent prospect that would totally revitalize that defense. He's the closest thing to a safe pick that we've seen in years.

                            He did win Big Ten offensive lineman of the year in 2006, when Joe Thomas was at Wisconsin... and everyone knows those awards are fact, there is no politics in involved

                            They will get a deal hammered out with Jake, then fax it directly to Chris' agent and offer them a 'take it or leave it' deal. By thursday Jake will have a contract with the Rams, they will over the same deal to Dorsey, then Jake will negotiate with the Falcons..... Then he will say 'f*ck the NFL, I hate you guys, I am taking my ball and going to Canada'

                              Craig...what? Long doesnt have the athleticism Thomas did. I never saw Thomas on his back in Collage like I have Long. Long is not on the Level of Joe Thomas. Many arent even sure he is quick enough to be a Left Tackle in the pro game where they get rushed by good pass rushers every game.

                              Long is NOT as good as Thomas was. I saw long a lot and he is not a Joe Thomas.
