Jennifer Lopez is a huge Dolphins fan. She pretty much has to be, considering husband Marc Anthony is a minority owner. While promoting her new movie, The Back-up Plan, on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, she made a first-round draft prediction.
"We have the 12th pick, you know, so I'm leaning towards Dan Williams," Lopez said, doing her best ESPN analyst impersonation. "We need a defensive tackle. He's explosive off the line, can beat the double team, and does a nice job finishing the play. But that's just my opinion."
Williams is a Tennessee alum and is projected to be a first-round pick in the draft. Considering she's probably repeating what Anthony thinks, and he's in a position to know what's going on in the minds of the Fins' powers that be, it might be a pretty good indication of who the Dolphins are looking into.
Lopez says it was all Marc's idea to purchase a stake in the team even though both are from New York and that she goes to as many games as Marc wants.
