We Shouldn’t Sneeze at Miami’s New Seventh Round Pick

26 Mar

The Dolphins were just awarded a compensatory pick late in the seventh round. Sure, this late stage of the draft is often the last stop for guys who are three months away from Arena League tryouts, or from selling homeowner’s insurance, or returning to their alma maters as assistants to assistant coaches. But The Bottlenose is in an optimistic mood this morning, so how about a gander at the NFL stalwarts who have come in the seventh round or later?

Seventh Rounders

Ahmad “Crazylegs” Bradshaw

Marques “Slow But Tall” Colston

Donald “Sanelegs” Driver

TJ “Hard to Spell Legs” Houshmandzadeh

Shannon “Mushmouth” Sharpe

Undrafted Players

Warren “Anger Management” Moon

Kurt “We’ve Heard About How You Were Bagging Groceries 5,421 Times” Warner

John “Real Men Aren’t Afraid to Wear Makeup” Randle

Wes “Why on Earth Did We Trade Him?” Welker

Tony “Dated Jessica Simpson Before She Started Feeding Her Feelings” Romo

Dave “My College Literally Closed Down After I Left” Kreig

So, while the odds of hitting the jackpot that late in the game are slim, there are gems to be had. Hopefully, if we keep the pick, we’ll be able to snag someone who falls through the cracks, a la Davone “Kahlua Legs” Bess.

ON ANOTHER SPORTS NOTE, The Bottlenose, aka El Diablo, is prepping to fight Chuck Liddell in what is destined to be an MMA classic. Just a side project a friend and I are working on. Feel free to take a look.

    You forgot to mention Bess. Who went undrafted and is on a tear.He just about had a record breaking season his rookie season for an undrafted wr. Only 2 wr rookies had more receptions that year then bess and they both were 2nd rounders.

      I would never have left out Bess, the greatest pure slot receiver in the game today. He got a special mention in the last paragraph.

      Thanks for visiting The Bottlenose. Go Dolphins.

    Not sure where he might go but Alan Bradford out of SC could be this years Ahmad Bradshaw a sleeper late round pick unless Carrol or Harbaugh snatch him, but Carrol has Lynch
