I saw this article on my phone the other day and thought it was good.
Two signs hung in the Dolphins’ draft room last week. The first:
“For the next three days, we are going to draft prototypical players that play football well in their pads on the football field.”
My translation: The Dolphins were not going to fall in love with combine players or anyone who had a great workout. They wanted to focus on football players and not let a 40 time or individual workout alter their thought process. They made it a point to have their draft board completely graded before they went to the Indy combine. They weren’t going to be swayed by workout warriors, and they were going to make sure they stayed true to their philosophical beliefs. Those beliefs are centered on size and speed football players — but the speed is functional football speed.
