Final day of rookie camp is usually telling
May 3, 2009 (Sun Sentinel delivered by Newstex ) --


The final session of the Miami Dolphins rookie mini camp is usually the lightest, but it's also the most critical because everything these newcomers learn has to come into play.

Will Pat White continue the trend of consistently getting better, which is exactly what he did at the Senior Bowl?

Can Vontae Davis and Sean Smith pick up the defense quick enough and improve on their coverage?

Will drafted receivers Patrick Turner and Brian Hartline take their game up a notch, separating themselves from practice squaders Anthony Armstrong and Todd Lowber?

Coach Tony Sparano had clearly liked what he's seen so far.

?With the receivers, there is a burst at the top of the route. There is the first thing that takes place at the line of scrimmage then a burst at the top of the route. But being able to sit down and drop your hips and put your foot in the ground. To really stop on one step instead of one, two, three and stop," Sparano said.?"Good defensive backs can recover (when a receiver does that). Being able to drop your hips with that big body and get right out of the break and come back to the quarterback creates a lot more separation than a little receiver. Hard to do for a big guy and he has that ability.

Can Australian rules Football punter Bond.... Jy Bond...straighten up his knuckle ball kicks?

Will tight ends John Nalbone and Jared Bronsonshow enough to put Joey Haynos' roster spot (on the 53-man roster or potential practice squad) in danger?

Will Cameron Wake apply enough pressure to the quarterback to convince the Trifecta they won't need Jason Taylor, or will Georgia Tech offensive tackle Andrew Gardner stonewall him?

Does undrafted nose tackle Lewis Ellis possess enough potential to possibly push Paul Soliai during training camp, or will the Dolphins keep looking for another understudy?

These are some of the things I'll be looking for on Sunday as I try to determine which newcomers could potentially make an impact in 2009.
