Miami Dolphins Strategy and Personnel 2009-05-04


Miami Dolphins Strategy and Personnel 2009-05-04
The Dolphins addressed a glaring need at cornerback in the draft by selecting Illinois' Vontae Davis in the first round and Utah's Sean Smith in the second. Davis and offseason acquisition Eric Green will be the frontrunners for the vacancy opposite Will Allen.


They also tried to shore up another perceived weakness by drafting two receivers with their first two picks of the second day when they took Southern Cal's Patrick Turner and Ohio State's Brian Hartline in the third and fourth rounds, respectively. The 6-5 Turner could compete with 2008 free-agent bust Ernest Wilford for red-zone duty, while the lightning-quick Hartline could stick on special teams. They'll certainly get their share of reps in OTAs with incumbent starting WR Greg Camarillo not expected back from a torn ACL until late July.

The Dolphins must be counting on OLB Cameron Wake to pick up the sack-slack opposite Joey Porter, because they passed up on highly touted 3-4 LBs Clay Matthews and James Laurinaitis.

Same goes for third-year NT Paul Soliai, who despite maturity issues, was difficult to budge at the point last season when spelling 34-year-old Jason Ferguson. Miami added an undrafted free agent nose tackle in Shaw's Louis Ellis, but he's a project at best.

MEDICAL WATCH: WR Greg Camarillo said this week that he ahead of schedule to return from a torn ACL by the start of training camp in late July.
