what is a J.P. Velociraptor

I want to re-label the "Velociraptor" on the _Jurassic_Park_ poster that came
with the movie. It is drawn to scale with the other dinos to be about the same
length as Gallimimus (17 feet). It has the tall skull like Deinonychus rather
than the true Velociraptor. My question is, which name is more appropriate for
this animal, given this body size and skull shape: Deinonychus, Utahraptor, ...?
