Default Hadnot signed by Browns

Well, it would address the need at Center, but wasn't the Dolphins line last year one of the worst?

The Dolphins were bad all the way around.

Isn't 325 lbs a little heavy for a ZB center? I reckon it wouldn't matter if he had speed, but dayum that's big.

Didn't we learn our lesson w/ Todd Wade. He wasn't much a run blocker and he struggled in pass protection, but other than that he was pretty good.

NEGATIVES: Stiff, lacks adjustment and immobile. Lacks top footwork, the ability to slide laterally and better in confined quarters.

Combine stats:
http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings...php?pyid=58811

He had a good 10 yard spilt in the 40 @ 1.87 (Joe Thomas; was 1.81 last year), 27 reps, 20 yrd shuttle was a 4.76 (which is pretty damn quick of an OL, using Thomas as a guide. Joe ran it in 4.85).

He may be big, but it looks like he can move more then adequetly for the ZBS.

I'm not. I'm just still scarred from the previous regimes desicions. And I also have alot more faith in this coaching staff. But MIA didn't have an outstanding OL last season.

They really did not have any offensive skill position players either. Prior to going down in the 7th week Ronnie Brown had put together 4 consecutive 100yards games (not against the best teams). Chambers was traded and they had a merry go round at QB.

LOL, no it doesn't appear beneficial from that analysis.

I agree, Additionally, the Phins have averaged 4.1 yds/carry in the past 2 years. Probably even higher if they hadn't lost their RB's.

Default Re: Chronic: Texans pursuing Dolphins offensive lineman Hadnot

I am assuming that Gibbs and Kubiak think that Hadnot will work in the ZBS of the Texans. If his quickness is adequate, remember one of the problems we have had over the entire 6 years was our center's inability to move piles and ofen getting pushed back. By getting a larger player that maybe resolved to some extent.

A more general point, is that blank team or unit sucked, so blank player has to suck. Given that logic the Pats would have never signed Wes Welker. The point of free agency, especially when you are not going to spend crazy is recognizing players who should fit what you are doing, and putting them in a situation to succeed.

I'm reading this as a negitive vote for this class of centers and back up insurance for the RG spot. I think Weary is gone.

It would be nice to have some beef at Center, since we face Haynesworth, Stroud, and Henderson a combined 25% of the season. Watching our center get shoved into the pocket (or worse, turtled) gets old.

I believe Stroud is getting permission to seek trades. (injured, missed games due to failed PED test).
