Everyone keeps complaining about all the small school players we took. But you know what? I've actually heard about these players and seen them ranked by everyone which is why I like our draft and think it's one of the better ones I saw this weekend. Do you realize how many teams drafted players in the top 5 rounds that I never even heard of? Now that's bad drafting or reaching(whatever you want to call it). Taking small school players is not bad drafting.


Miami got 2 of the top 10 offensive linemen. Pretty smart move considering it was our weakest part of the team. They got one of the most clutch receivers in this draft and an eventual starter.

In the 4th round they got a mammoth corner to add to an already talented secondary.

In the 5th round they got the 6th best tight end on some websites boards. Not sure how anyone can complain about that. And the other 5th round pick is an Uber-versatile linebacker that draft analysts were raving about leading up to the draft.

Can't say I know much about the receiver Hazel but he looked pretty impressive in those highlights.

Terence Fede was on lists of the top small school players.


So I am very satisfied with how Hickey did in his first draft in Miami.


The teams that should be complaining are as follows.


Cleveland Browns:
Your team enters this draft with a mountain of picks. Your superstar receiver is busted on his 3rd drug offense. You're sitting in the Sammy Watkins draft slot and you trade out of it???? What? and for Justin Gilbert? Oh and then you go 7 rounds without drafting a wide receiver? WHAT???? EPIC FAIL
So who will Johnny Football be throwing to opening day? Greg Little and Travis Benjamin? LOL


Dallas Cowboys:
Your defense got completely picked apart in the offseason you need 3 starters in the front 7 and you draft Zack Martin? Here's one of those teams that took a guy I never saw on any ranking list in the 4th round. They also did that last year.


Carolina Panthers:
You lost your top 3 receivers and 3 offensive linemen retired in one offseason. Yet you draft 1 receiver and 1 lineman? What?????


Detroit Lions:
You have one of the shakiest secondaries in the league and you draft one defensive back in round 4?


Kansas City Chiefs:
Your biggest need by a mile is wide receiver and you drafted how many of them? ZERO!


New England Patriots:
Did you really just draft a guy in round 1 with 2 major knee injuries already? LOL


How dare anyone make fun of Miami's draft. Where they got value and actually filled their needs.


The Dolphins concluded their 2014 NFL Draft by selecting Marist DE Terrence Fede.  At 6'3, 276 lbs, Fede ran a 4.76 40 at the Bufalo Pro Day.  Had 13 sacks in 2013, and finished his career with 30.5 sacks.  Concerns are about his level of competition and he may have to make the conversion to an OLB in a 3-4 scheme, something Miami uses on occassions.  Has initial quickness to beat college OT, but needs to develop more pass rush moves, as his quickness will be handled by NFL tackles as his quickness is his calling card.




Terrence Fede Highlights


Round 7, Pick 19
Terrence Fede, DE
Marist | Senior
Hometown: Nyack, NY
Height/Weight: 6-3 / 276 lbs



At 6-foot-4 and 267 pounds, Fede has the frame and strength to hold up against the run. He was a productive pass-rusher at Marist and shows some bend rushing off the edge. He now needs to show he can adjust to the speed at the NFL level, but he's worth taking a chance on this late in this draft.

Good size to serve as a situational pass rusher. Quick off the line and good speed to close on the quarterback. Good agility testing at Buffalo's pro day: 4.76-second 40-yard dash, 7.13 3-cone drill. Has displayed solid coverage skills.

ignificant level of competition concerns. Lacks bulk on his 6-3 frame and may need to transition to OLB. Needs to develop deeper array of pass-rush moves to be effective at the next level; First step good enough to beat college level of competition but NFL offensive tackles will be able to handle his first move.

--Dane Brugler


Fede was named an FCS second team All-American after setting a single-season school record with 13 sacks in 2013 to earn Pioneer Football League Defensive Player of the Year honors and was also named to the 2013 Walter Camp FCS All-America Team.

Fede was one of 20 finalists for The Sports Network?s Buck Buchanan Award, ultimately finishing sixth. He becomes the first Marist student-athlete to be recognized with one of the league?s top honors.

He leaves Marist as the program's career leader with 30.5 sacks.

Fede arrived at Marist as a two-sport star (basketball) out of Nyack, N.J. After seeing action in eight games as a freshman, he sat out the 2010 season. Fede returned with avengance in 2011, earning second team All-PFL honors before really bursting onto the scene as a first team All-PFL performer with 9.0 sacks in 2012.





"Fede is the first player ever drafted from Marist. Rik Smits, who played in the NBA, this is his alma mater. The Miami Dolphins did their homework with Fede and decided that he fit better with their scheme than others who are still on the board from bigger schools." -- Charles Davis
