Why are y’all hating? It’s a 7th rounder and a smart move concerning Takks inability to finish a season healthy and also likely attitude to having his 5th season declined. Cry about not having depth t

For a 7th rounder... why not. We will have a 7th round compensatory pick anyway. I dont think this is a bad move at all.

3.5 sacks in three seasons, albeit with a terrible team. Depth pick - hopefully we didn't give up more than a seventh or sixth at the most!

It feels like a terrible strategy now of just collecting failed 1st round picks.

Seems everyone that TD likes in pre-draft process from previous years that flop and become available- we pickup this year.   The bigger the flop the better. :flush:

Yet when belichick does it he's a genius.

Seriously.. For a seventh rounder this is worth the risk. He will an free agent next year if he does not produce.

What do we normally use a seventh rounder for? How can people be angry about that? 

1,9mio? Arent we paying Schaub 4 mio a year?

Yeah not much to lose.  Probably would have been cut by Monday though.  Of course at that point you have to compete with other NFL teams.

Here’s the problem: His salary of $1.9 million is fully guaranteed. He’s had 3.5 sacks in 41 career games. You could get that from a practice squad player for less than a third of that money. So unless DQ thinks he alone has the special sauce to turn Charles Harris has emphatically showed he ain’t, this is waste of money, waste of a draft pick (even a conditional one), and a waste of a roster spot. Dolphins probably can’t believe they found someone to take the guy off their hands. 

Yeah he was about to be cut.

Because when you look at our dline, it projects to be toward the bottom of the league in sacks again. TD could have found production elsewhere via trade.

I’ve come to think Drew Boylhart from The Huddle Report is pretty good...here was his assessment of Harris during his draft year...


Drew’s Draft Rule number 14 – “Pass Rushing is not a specialty. It should be included in the evaluation of a DE or LB position in its totality”. That’s how I feel and it’s hard for me to give a player who may have 1st round talent in one part of his game and doesn’t bring that talent to the rest of his game. The truth is I’m in the minority in this thinking because year after year players with Charles size and specialty pass rushing talents are selected in the first round. Some have made it and become excellent players and some have failed miserably. The failure is only because of expectations of being selected in the first round and not because they don’t bring their special talents with them to the NFL level. The expectation of selecting a player in the first round is that he will become a starting player for your team. If that player only becomes a specialty player like a nickel/back or just a pass rusher they can become a good player but not an impact player because they are not on the field enough to impact. Charles for me is a perfect example of this situation. You select him in the first round and he doesn’t develop and learn to stop the run than he is not on the field enough to impact like a 1st round selection and he is considered a bust and the GM and coach wind up losing their jobs. You selected him in the 2nd round and if he still doesn’t develop it’s not a big deal, if he does develop you have a steal and you’re considered a genius in selecting players in the draft. Here’s the catch someone else selects him in the first round and he DOES develop and you missed out on selecting a great pass rusher. This draft thing is tough. Still I know Charles can be a good run stuffer but I see on film a player with that talent who doesn’t bother to apply that talent and that sends up the red flag for me personally. That to me is big issue; it’s like a tight end that has the talent to block but doesn’t bother. It’s a character flaw more than a talent flaw and Drew’s Draft Rule number 4 says “Character is as important as Talent”

A line of Grady and Fowler alone is better than a lot of teams. It's easy to tell who doesn't really keep up with other teams around the NFL.

Its a 7th Round pick. We were not going to get a world beater in the 7th round next year anyway and we've theoretically gotten our punter from this years draft so why not? If he's trash we loose nothing, if he actually contributes (4 to 6) sacks Dimitroff looks like a genius.

Agreed that 7th is a “so what” pick, low risk. That’s not the problem. The guaranteed $1.9 million is.

Just like it's easy to keep up with guys who get lazy once they get drafted and eventually bust. Didn't stop you from making that post about how it doesn't happen.
