Post Iceberg's Pre Combine Dolphins First Four Rounds
1. Rolando McClain 6'3" 245
2. Terrence Cody 6'4" 1/5 a ton or Cam Thomas 6'3" 331
3. Demaryius Thomas 6'3" 225
4. George Selvie 6'4" 245

1. Rolando McClain
Miami has front seven needs, at multiple positions. So it would behoove them to add a fast-rising prospect like McClain, an amazing tackler that can cover a lot of ground from the middle linebacker spot. He’s got great fundamentals and has a knack of shedding blockers to make big tackles. When you hear his name, you might first think of the protagonist from the “Die Hard” film series. He certainly has the same toughness and will to fight.

2. Terrence Cody's Weight issues might be good for the anti-eating disorder groups but not for the NFL coming in just under 1/5 of a ton (370) could see him drop even farther than the second depending on his combine. Cam Thomas had a great season for North Carolina plugging up the middle and constantly demanding double teams. Both could make the dolphins a more confident about the up the middle run stoppage.

3. Demaryius Thomas could mean back to back Thomas' in this draft and as I recall the some other guy named thomas we drafted was pretty good as well. Demaryius broke his foot and therefore will not be able to wow scouts with his "so called" speed and coming from a run heavy offense at GT, his value will not be as high, however Henned wanted a 6'3" guy with Speed, here ya go.

4. George Selvie, guy fell off the end of his career at USF, but constant double teams will hurt your stats and ironically sky-rocketed Jason Pierre-Paul's draft stock. Selvie did get reps as a 2-4 LB at the senior bowl and showed fluid motion and the ability to stick with receivers. His inability to get off blocks of the more physical tackles demonstrates that Selvie would be better suited as a linebacker at the next level.


Let the criticism begin haha

I could certainly live with that group of four. The broken foot could very well push Thomas to the 3rd round because there are questions about his route running and you will not be able to see him run routes before the draft.

I definitely think Selvie has the athleticism to convert to a 3-4 OLB as well as the frame. Brandon Lang, the DE/OLB from Troy could be a consideration as well. 6'4, 260 lbs with 4 years of production with 23.5 sacks and 37.5 tackles for loss. Parcells is familiar with Troy players with DeMarcus Ware.

Never thought of him...he would be a nice pick up, yes.
