Introducing ...........Derek Hagan

Recommended Posts

I am not a Dolphins fan at all, trust me, so this is totally unbiased. I took a bye week flyer just a minute prior to early kickoff (my other options were C Brown and CBuck) and I just barely snuck out a victory.

 

I was stuck with the Dolphins/Jets and had a chance to see this guy get targetted alot later in the game. Now I know he dropped a TD but he impressed me with his first real regular season action.

 

Just a hunch, but I think this guy will start opposite Chambers with Welker in teh slot for the remainder of the season. Booker is washed up IMO.

 

Anyone feel the same or differently?

 

:D

Last year he was really high on Mel Kiper and a lot of other so called draft experts draft boards. Going into his senior season he had all the hype, and was supposed to be a 1st/2nd round pick, so the talent is there. I don't think they wanted him to get in this early, but he did look good. I do think that we will see he and Booker rotate, if Hagen can seperate himself, then the job will be his.

He appears to be a big target and was thrown to 5 other times in the game........I say sleeper.

 

We'll see.

that was exactly why they drafted him but he has a long way to go before stepping into a productive, consistent role.

It's one game and if he supplants Booker that would make him the #3.

I'm thinking Harrington has a rapport with him that he doesn't have with Booker. Could be because of time spent working with the second stirng. Certianly something to keep an eye on.

He dropped 2 HUGE balls in that game. 1 for a first down while we we're driving and a TD pass right in his hands that Chambers or any other receiver would have caught easily.

He has the tools, but I don't know if he has the hands to be an elite WR some day. Bad hands are hard to fix, and I think he might have bad hands. Other than that, he has upside for sure.... and every WR will have a bad game here and there. Didn't he have dropsy problems at the Senior Bowl too?
