And the #1 Pick of the 2008 NFL Draft is…..

Jake Long

We won’t have to wait until this coming Saturday to hear the announcement because Miami has already signed Jake Long as their number one pick. Long an offensive linemen out of Michigan received a 5-year $57.5 million deal with $30 million of guaranteed cizassh. I like the move by the Dolphins for the pure fact that they weren’t going to sign McFadden or Ryan so it came down to going with the best offensive linemen in the draft or one of the top defensive linemen like Chris Long, Glenn Dorsey or Vernon Gholston. Ultimately it appears Miami felt it was top priority to go the offensive line route and Jake Long should be able to immediately step in and help protect Miami’s quarterback and open holes for Ronnie Brown.

  1. Great move by Miami!

  2. a little known fact.. The First day of the draft is watched by more people than the Stanley Cup finals, the NBA Finals and 2 games of the World Series. Not combined but per event. And this is not even a competitive event… What does that say aout the other sports?

  3. that the nba, nhl, and mlb need more mel kiper?

  4. Don’t forget the up and coming Todd McShay. 🙂
