A Boy Named Suh

When you think of the last few years in the draft, there have been a lot of notable players, and a lot of players who make-up the Pro-bowl rosters and All-pro teams, but heading into the draft, few of them have been considered must have or Elite talent. I haven't followed the draft or college football for the matter for more than a decade and in that time I couldn't think of more than 2 or 3 players that had that kind of label, not just someone who is considered the best in the class by many scouts/talking heads, but has the consensus label and could be a starter on all 32 teams immediately. Ndamukong Suh is one of those. 
Every year there's buzz about a dozen or so players being 'elite' or being top of the class. Well, there's usually someone who can argue against each player, but this year, Suh is keeping the pundits quiet. You see, the game tape is just too ridiculously good to argue against. The quality of his character is too good to argue against. His football smarts are too good to argue against. And his strength, determination, and coachability are also ticks in his pro column. The guy simply is the best Defensive Lineman to come along in a long time. I remember seeing him play in 2008 and immediately thinking to myself, 'this guy could be in the NFL right now'. Well, he only got better and stronger since then. And he showed he could play anywhere on the line in a 4-3, 3-4, 5-2, 3-3-5, whatever.

So, it seems only logical that we should trade up for him, because St Louis will undoubtedly either draft him into mediocrity, or pass on him to take a QB, thus making the biggest GM mistake ever. It's up to Miami to come to the rescue of my fellow Portlander (my adopted 'home-town' where I will soon return to), and add him to the Dolphins rotation. A Dolphins line that had Starks, Suh, Langford, Merling, and McDaniel would certainly make waves, and help to ease the liability at ILB.

We all have an idea of what we want with the 12th pick, although a large portion, if not a majority of Miami fans, wants to trade DOWN rather than pick at 12. But what if we were picking 1st as we did in 2008? Would you trade down to pick McClain or Bryant or Dan Williams? OR would you say to yourself, 'There's no way I'd pass on Suh'?

If you feel that Suh is the 'best in show', the elite monster that would tear up the NFL, a la Reggie White (the player he's most often compared to), then surely you would forget about McClain and Bryant and trade UP to get him.

The following is the math done for you, so you can put on your GM hats, and decide if you want to make the deal. Keep in mind, with the 1st pick overall, you can take any player you want, and you can sign him before the draft, so on draft day you can sleep in while all the other teams jostle for parking.

  1. Miami trades their 12th overall, with their 2011 1st round pick and Tedd Ginn and a mid-level player such as Paul Soliai.
  2. Miami trades their 12th overall, their 2nd round pick, Tedd Ginn, Paul Soliai, Jason Allen and Lex Hilliard.
  3. Miami trades the 12th overall, their 2011 3rd and 4th round picks and Ronnie Brown.
  4. Miami trades their 2011 1st round pick, their 2010 2nd round pick, a 2010 6th round pick, Will Allen, and Pat White.
  5. St Louis is desperate to trade out and gives us the 1st pick for our 1st pick and 4th round picks and a 2011 conditional.
  6. St Louis drafts a QB, leaving Detroit to either take Suh or trade with us for our 12th overall, and couple of O-linemen, and our 4th round pick.
  7. Stephen Ross buys the Rams, and gets them to trade picks with Miami for cash.


  1. I'll take #4 please.  Can I get a side of LB's with that?  LOL

  2. 8. We have someone look for a parking spot early.

  3. Can Suh demand the center and guard of a NFL team to block him every time? Is he the true perenial pro bowl NT of the future?  Then YES fill that need now. Move up if you can. 

  4. If you have a Suh and Starks demanding 4 of the 5 o-linemen's attention then the TE and RB CAN'T burn you over the middle!

  5. 8.  we tell the rams to give us the pick or we will send home and his chemtrails up to st. louis

  6. The Knight who says Ni!February 22, 2010 at 12:44 PM

    Wow, my trade isn't far off from what you suggested and I added humor to mine as well. I have it home though so I'll submit it later.

  7. Are you saying that yours is humorous like mine, or that mine is totally
    devoid of humor? lol
    Ultimately there are two factors in any trades this off-season, potential
    payoff versus market value. A couple of years ago St Louis could've said,
    we want 2 1st's a 2nd and 2 3rds and no one would've batted an eyelid. But
    after the Roy Williams debacle and the Jay Cutler slump, teams won't see the
    kind of potential in making such a blockbuster trade anymore. Then you have
    the market value, where a guy like Miles Austin is likely to be tendered
    much higher than expected, and Dansby wants $30 mil guaranteed (good luck
    with that,
    These two forces will push against each other and it ultimately will come
    down to which the trading teams deem most reasonable. Ultimately I'd think
    a team like Seattle, Cleveland or Oakland would be willing to move up. It
    might be too uphill for the Dolphins to pull off.

  8. We Have Playmakers???February 22, 2010 at 1:17 PM

    I absolutely love Suh.  He's by far the best prospect in this draft & I can't recall a defensive player that was as dominant as Suh has been at the college level.  Almost every other player in this draft has question marks so if the Rams actually decide to pass on him & trade down then in fantasy land I'm all for this.  

    However, I can think of a bunch of other teams that will be licking their chops if the Rams don't make the pick so that will obviously up the ante.  IMO--It will take this year's first round pick, a mid-round pick from this draft, & next years first.  That's a king's ransom & I don't think Parcells would do it considering that we still have a lot of needs other than NT.  In addition I don't think that Parcells wants to spend another $10 Million plus a year on a rookie NT or any other player for that matter.  In reality this is just not going to happen.

  9. How would that effect the cap if any?  Doesn't look good for the CBA but can the phins afford him while paying for another 1st round pick in Long?  Personally I like option 2 if indeed he is that good.

  10. I'll take #5, and we tell St. Loius will keep Home here.

  11. We Have Playmakers???February 22, 2010 at 1:22 PM


    Come on....Getting Suh is a pipe dream.

  12. We Have Playmakers???February 22, 2010 at 1:26 PM


    He's THAT good.  The kid is a flat out stud but the price tag & what we'd have to give for him is just too rich.

  13. The Knight who says Ni!February 22, 2010 at 1:30 PM

    No, I'm saying mine is serious and humorous like yours.

  14. The Knight who says Ni!February 22, 2010 at 1:31 PM

    I had a dream about a pipe last night. It had this sticky green stuff in it and... oh never mind.  ;)

  15. I think #7 is the most realistic of all the options!

  16. St Louis is paying for Chris Long, Jason Smith, and the 1st pick this year.
    Detroit is paying for Stafford, Calvin Johnson, and the 2nd pick this year.
    That's the name of the game for sucking. However, Jake's contract actually
    goes down about a mil a year if I recall, so he'll get cheaper over time.
    In any event, when you need to get under the cap, you trade/release other
    players. If we get rid of Gibril Wilson and any of the following, Torbor,
    Anderson, Ayodele, Ginn, Allen, Allen, etc we could afford just about

  17. WHP, we are in the 'pre-draft ether', what does reality have to do with
    anything? It's all about fantasy and speculation right now.
    If you want to be realistic, we're going to have to stop imagining Rolando
    McClain being there at #12, because I just couldn't get him there in my mock
    because of Denver, Cleveland and Jacksonville picking ahead of us.

  18. The Knight who says NiFebruary 22, 2010 at 3:34 PM

    What would it take to move up and get Suh?

    Just for fun. If that was the player we think could take the defense to another level, how do you land him?

    How about this? 

    The Rams run a 4-3 and invested a lot in Chris Long at DE. They could use some beef on the DL to take some blockers off him and Laurianitis. But they also want a young QB to build with. They would be getting more value taking a Clausen or Bradford at #12 than #1 because that would be absurd.

    Here's the deal:
    1. Our #12 pick. That's a gimme!

    2. WR Ted Ginn (2007 1st round pick) could be lethal on turf with his speed and he's still young at 24 years old. A fresh start in a new city with a rebuilding team. Less pressure. Who knows, in 2 or 3 years the Rams could be a good team and Ginn could be an explosive player for them at 26 or 27 years old. Hartline could take over Ginn's role. Not as fast, but more savvy and tougher. He's more complete.

    3. DT Paul Soliai (2007 4th round pick) 6-4 345 who most feel is not a NT but better suited as a 4-3 DT. He gives them that guy with some seasoning, a lot of size and decent athletic ability in the middle of their DL, only 26 years old.

    4. DE/DT Lionel Dotson (2008 7th round pick) he's been conditioned and developed by good football people for two years at 24 years old. He has potential but can't crack our DL. He has good 4-3 DT size at 6-4 295 and some pass rush ability.

    If that's not enough, we might have to deal Merling instead of Dotson.

    So in reality we're giving them players who were recent draft picks, not undrafted and street FAs.

    5. We send them our top 6th and 7th round picks from KC. We'd still have two 6ths and a 7th.

    6. Just for fun, Miami sends the Rams organization 1,000 lbs. of Joe's Stone Crabs. LOL

    I know it's a baseball type of trade and a dream scenario for us, but does it make any sense value wise, and for both teams?

    To me this trade deepens the Rams draft. There is no real cap issue for the Rams with this trade and they lose no draft picks. They can go anywhere including QB without reaching at #1 and take him at #12 or they could still trade up for a QB. They get three players with 2-3 years experience and all three are 26 years old or younger. They get DL and elite speed on returns and at WR on turf, and two more picks. The Rams need some size and depth on the DL.

    Without even drafting the Rams get deeper at positions where they need young talent and they add two picks. They are rebuilding. The Dolphins and Rams don't have an intense rivalry either, so it also makes sense there.

    We add a dominant prospect, one of the best D-lineman to come out of college in years and we will have relieved some cap room to pay for him with the loss of a few contracts. As much as I root for the Ginn, the trifecta would have never taken him at #9. Remember too that Pennington's contract is done. Porter will be released and Henne makes 2nd round money for at least another year until he proves he's worth an extension and/or a bigger deal. We can afford this trade. The trifecta trades away two former regime 2007 draft picks along the way.

  19. The Knight who says NiFebruary 22, 2010 at 3:51 PM

    Forgot to comment on the photo quotes. LMFAO!!!

  20. Forget all that speculation. It would be much too expensive to trade up from #12 to #1. Maybe if you're in the Top 5 you can trade up but not from #12. Also, I don't think teams value Ted Ginn as high as some of you think. If we could get anything decent for him (like a 2nd), he'd be long gone. Sorry to destroy the party, but it is simply not realistic.

    It would make sense to trade up for the Bucs, though. They are desperate for a DT (Suh) and could jump Detroit to get him. If the Rams decide to take a QB (the don't have one as of today), their ideal landing spot would be #3 (to stay ahead of WAS). So the Rams could take their QB of the future (for #3 money instead of spending #1 money) and get an additional pick from the Bucs who, in return, could get their coveted DT without trading away the farm.

    How about the Dolphins trading up for Eric Barry if he makes it out of the Top 5? He would be the ideal ballhawking FS for our defense. He is everything that Gibril Wilson was expected to be.

    Anyway, the most realistic scenario is probably that we'll end up picking at #12...

  21. Burnum,

    After all the work Knight and Tins put in , you have to ruin the fun!

    I have to realistically agree with you but I love Knight's scenario and #4 on Tins.

  22. The Knight who says NiFebruary 22, 2010 at 10:08 PM

    The Jets traded from #17 to #5 in 2009 to get Sanchez. I'd do even more to get Suh.

  23. Good point, but now all teams know just how stupid a move that was by the Browns. And Mangina is no longer in charge of an NFL Franchise (and rightfully so)...

    Of course it is theoretically possible to trade up to #1 from just about anywhere. But at some point it just doesn't make sense in my opinion. This is expected to be a very deep draft class, so it might not be a wise move to trade away too many draft picks. I hope we could maybe even get some more picks by trading some veteran rotation players (Will Allen, Jason Allen, Soliai, Camarillo/Bess, Ayodele)...

  24. <span>Ndamukong Suh is indeed one of the best football players I have seen come out of college in a long time. Unfortunately the Rams can dictate pretty much anything they want for this beast and it will probably be 3 1st round draft picks and guess who could do that without a lot of pain? The damn Patriots... They have 1 number one this year and 2 next year. The Dolphins are in that middle ground where they are getting good but not quite there. Suh will go to either a really bad team (Rams - Bucs) or to a really good team (Patriots - Eagles) because the bad teams get the high picks and the good team can afford to trade a few pics for one dominate player.</span>
    <span>The Dolphins can't afford to give up what it would take to acquire this guy though I'm with you... Man he would look good in a Dolphin uniform.</span>

  25.  ...  I Got Nothing

  26. Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Lions are shopping their 2nd overall
    pick. Obviously they don't want to have to pay Johnson, Stafford, and the
    new guy. If the Rams pick a QB, there will be major interest in moving up
    for Suh from half a dozen teams.

  27. the pats dont have to trade any pics, if they want suh all they have to do is make a phone call to goodell and he will make it happen.

  28. The Knight who says Ni!February 23, 2010 at 7:59 AM


  29. Sounds great and all but the reality voice in my head says a #1 pick for a #12 and 3 back ups is not even close...

  30. Goodell: "Yes Bill I understand that everyone loves the glamor boy with the super model girlfriend.  Of course the SB ratings would go up, if gubber boy Payton Manning can draw such good ratings just think of all the commercials we could sell with a glamor boy. I understand you need Suh... We will start a rumor that Suh beat up his girlfriend and was caught smoking weed in a 7-11 parking lot. If he doesn't drop far enough, we'll come up with something else."

  31. <span>ding ding ding  goodell: "hey bill, i just had a great idea.  i will declare suh ineligible for the draft and then right before your pick, i will re-instate him"  bill:  'that might be hard to explain'   goodell:  "no, i will say we have written proof why he is ineligible. and then after the draft somehow the proof will get destroyed'</span>

  32. Bill: "Oh come on commish... Do you think for one moment the kid wants to play for the Rams or the Bucs? When was the last time either of those two teams had a prime time game?" Goodell: "What are you proposing Bill?"  Bill: "We'll have his agent leak word to the press that he will refuse to sign with any team but the Cheatriots. We'll trade them our back-up guard and our 1st round pick plus a player to be named later." Goodell: "It's genius Bill, all we have to do then is forget to name the player! If it gets questioned the league will expand the Rams roster to allow for 8 more undrafted FAs and give them a years supply of Gatorade. We will of course fine you personally $5K and the Cheatriots $25K, is it a deal?" Bill: "Deal!"

    Regretfully I happened to agree with you.

  37. We Have Playmakers???February 23, 2010 at 9:57 AM

    No way.  The Patriots are already spending more than they want to by franchising Wilfork at $7 Million.  IMO-They will get a some kind of longer deal done with him.  In addition, the Patriots are not the same team they were two years ago & they have almost as many holes on their team as we do. 

  38. We Have Playmakers???February 23, 2010 at 9:58 AM


    That news is almost a week old.

  39. In Portland there's more Plaid Pantry's than 7-11s. Just sayin...
    Isn't being caught smoking weed in a 7-11 parking lot sort of like being
    caught pouring milk on your breakfast cereal?

  40. ... Still Got Nothing

  41. Or...say he's under investigation for murder/rape then right before the Pats
    pick say new DNA evidence has come to light.

  42. Knight, this happened last week (the same day I posted the Bills blog
    article). Where have you, and the Sun-Sentinel been?

  43. We Have Playmakers???February 23, 2010 at 10:11 AM

    This is from Tim Graham & that scout Matt Williamson who missed the boat on Fasano got it right with Henne.

    "In a weekly feature, Scouts Inc. addresses key offseason questions for ESPN Insiders. At the top of Monday's list is whether Chad Henne really is the Miami Dolphins' quarterback of the future.

    Matt Williamson, my favorite scouting analyst out there, believes the Dolphins are set at quarterback.

    <p>[Henne] is tough, intelligent and built well to take a pounding. He has a very strong arm and will threaten a defense at all levels.
    </p><p>At this early stage of his career, he can act as a game-manager-type behind a good offensive line in a run-first offense that can control a game on the ground. But Henne is more than that, and he will only get better. In the final five games of the season, Henne eclipsed 300 passing yards three times. However, in his last six games, he did throw 10 interceptions -- far too high of a number -- but he also attempted 233 passes in that stretch, which isn't the Dolphins' recipe for offensive success. Remember, this offense is devoid of pass-catching difference-makers, which put a ton of stress on a first-year starter behind center.
    </p><p>Henne enters this offseason as the clear starter, and that preparation time should do wonders. Now it is on Miami's personnel department to get its promising young signal-caller another viable weapon or two."</p>

    Check this out...

    "San Diego Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson pleaded guilty to a 2009 DUI charge on Monday and received a four-day jail sentence and five years probation, two San Diego-area television stations reported.


    Since joining the Chargers, Jackson has been arrested twice for suspicion of driving under the influence. He pleaded guilty in a 2006 case and was on probation when he was arrested again last January.
    The San Diego attorney's office told XETV-6 and KGTV-10 that Jackson was given the standard sentence to a suspect who had a prior DUI conviction.
    With the guilty plea, Jackson likely will be subject to the NFL's personal conduct policy and could face at least a one-game suspension in the 2010 season.
    Jackson was also arrested earlier this year, just hours before the Chargers played the New York Jets in the NFL playoffs. Jackson was handcuffed briefly and had his car impounded following a traffic stop.
    Jackson was cited for driving with a suspended license and expired tags.
    Jackson likely will be a restricted free agent this offseason, unless the NFL and its players can agree to a new contract before March 5. If a new contract is agreed to, then Jackson would be an unrestricted free agent.
    Jackson enjoyed his best NFL season in 2009 with 68 catches for 1,167 yards and nine touchdowns."

  57. At least he pleaded guilty. He is going to take his punishment like a
    grown-up and work to improve his image afterwards. But I would really have
    loved for it to go to trial, because then the details would come out and I'd
    love to know how Jackson got a DUI on the way to the Airport to fly to a

  60. We Have Playmakers???February 23, 2010 at 10:42 AM

    Answer--He was drunk. 

  61. Yeah so Jackson is flawed, Brandon Marshall is flawed, Dez Bryant is flawed,
    Andre Johnson is flawed. Is there a single one of these elite WRs that
    isn't? The question is, if being a game-changer out weighs their
    indiscretions. Ultimately this is why I'd rather have an Eric Decker or
    Terrell Hudgins on my team than a Dez Bryant. I want someone who's going to
    have full confidence but still be a hard worker and show some humility at
    times that require it.
    Although in the future, none of these issues will be around - players will
    be drafted and as part of their contract they will be cryogenically stored
    up until game day and they will be taught the gameplan through some sort of
    osmosis ray during their deep sleep mode. They will be allowed to warm up
    and cool down pre/post game then put back on ice.

  62. The Knight who says Ni!February 23, 2010 at 10:51 AM

    That he's not dead and in fact he's actually present at the draft and eligible to be drafted at any time. Guess who's on the clock? LOL

  63. This is my version of Omar's discussion of music (sub rock for rap):
    "It's great to see Bon Jovi finally getting the recognition they deserve. I
    TOLD you they would break - been listening to them for months now!"

    Agreed. Is Richard Seymour a UFA? I know he's with the Raiders, but I heard he's a UFA. How messed up would that be if he re-signed with the Pats and the Raiders have to give up a 1st round pick in 2011?

    out of their small Jersey town.

  82. what does it matter where she works, she doesnt do  co-workers.  LOL

  83. the best part of these idiots (yeah they are idiots) getting dui's isnt that they have the money to take a cab or even have a possi that could take them home, no the best part is the nfl provides a free service that all they have to do is call a number and they will get a free ride home. 

  84. They'd have to stop their ustream feeds and twittering long enough to call
    the number

    All the cornballs are into them. All they have to do is mention Jersey and everyone drools and and acts like a retard.

  86. The Knight who says Ni!February 23, 2010 at 12:10 PM

    I agree that they're idiots.

  87. We Have Playmakers???February 23, 2010 at 12:44 PM


  88. We Have Playmakers???February 23, 2010 at 12:46 PM


    LMAO at the Oz reference.  Now that's f#cking funny!!!

    I'm pretty sure Andre Johnson has stayed out of trouble.  All the more reason to get Boldin.  Is he a diva?  No doubt.  His agent is Drew Rosenhaus.  Enough said but he still stays out of trouble & he's supposed to be a great  teammate. 

    If I were to play pick that Cardinal, I would much rather get Boldin then Rolle or overpay for Dansby.

  90. The Knight who says Ni!February 23, 2010 at 1:00 PM

    I'd give up a 4th round pick for Boldin.

  91. The Knight who says Ni!February 23, 2010 at 1:01 PM

    Tin says he prefers the Tuna with the Dolphin in it.  =-O

  92. Well, Aubrayo Franklin, Casey Hampton and Vince Wilfork have all been
    franchised. Ironically, that means they're *not* coming to a neighborhood
    near you.
    And thus Dan Williams, Brian Price, etc have all risen in value.

  93. I only have one problem with Boldin and that's his durability. Granted he
    gets hurt a lot because he plays without fear, so its one of those negatives
    that springs from a positive, like having sex with a beautiful woman only to
    find out you've got blueberry warts as a result. (yes I did just make that

  94. The Knight who says Ni!February 23, 2010 at 1:38 PM

    Blueberry warts aye?

  95. The Knight who says Ni!February 23, 2010 at 1:39 PM

    Their value goes up but not their talent, just the price.  :(

  96. Yes well the quality of gas hasn't gone up in the last 5 years but the price
    has and we gladly pay it, so what's your point?

  97. For the record I just started going to those blogs the past couple days when i heard about the contest. I like them because they're (for the most part) about the dolphins. But i value the opinions on this site much more then the others. it's kinda like a year or so ago I liked Sun Sentinal becuase of the guys & gal that regularly posted there & hated miami herald because the comments are so dumb... So thanks for being intelligent!?!

  98. The Knight who says NiFebruary 23, 2010 at 4:36 PM

    Gladly pay it?  >:o

  99. The Knight who says NiFebruary 23, 2010 at 4:39 PM

    Hey little buckaroo, I know I must be one of those intelligent bloggers you speak of. After all I am a Knight and everything, and I am a guest blogger. So you're welcome!  8-)

  100. That was me 24 years ago! But seriously would skip every comment til I hit a Tinshaker, knight (fka Bunghole or whatever it used to be), Omar, I want play makers (fka i want sean smith, we have play makers, I want a new name), Krillian.....even finfinArod (everybody needs a little humor) & of course herd/slush.
    & I saw a chemtrail while in arizona....nevermind.

  101. Yay!  Someone likes me!  I thought I was just annoying!  And for the record, slush and I are not the same person, if that's what you meant.  She has much more football insight than me.   But I try!!!  :*

  102. no didn't think you two were the same, just haven't heard from slush in a while, hence gal. My fiance actually out talked a couple guys @ the bar this last year & I was very impressed, so i incourage the female population to be involved! Thats why i still like Crowder his mom try's to inform, that & our defense is actually alot better when he is in the game. is that sad? probably.

  103. The Knight who says Ni!February 24, 2010 at 6:36 AM

    Dude, not Bunghole, Mr. Bungle. LOL

  104. Good Morning Bunglehole


  105. Mr Bungholio was your imposter though

  106. The Knight who says Ni!February 24, 2010 at 9:22 AM

    My impostor used a few different names. As you can see a certain someone gets a real kick out of it. He's on the SS rehashing it over and over.

  107. U have to admit it was funny but
    when "fan" actually took the time to create U a duplicate blog of Tins Fins with your posting name
    That took the cake

    I am actually having belly laughs right now thinking about it
