Let The Camping Begin

Chad Henne - Collegian.psuToday, the Miami Dolphins start a rookie 3 day mini-camp that will host around 28 rookies.  A splattering of “Better be’s”, “could be’s”, “should be’s”, “wanna be’s” and “maybe’s”.

While most eyes will be on the likes of guys named Long and Henne, Merling and Lanford.  The real wars begin with the later round selections and the free agent undrafted rookies and try out invitees.  Below is a list of the rookies not drafted who will be in attendence for the 2′oclock start.

University of Washington’s Marcell Reece

Grand Rapids Community College’s Justin Wynn

Hawaii receiver Davone Bess

Mississippi State linebacker Titus Brown

Delaware center Mike Byrne

Montana kicker Dan Carpenter

Georgia Southern quarterback Jayson Foster – as a receiver

Boise State tackle Dan Gore

Portland State tackle Daren Heerspink

Purdue cornerback Aaron Lane

Purdue receiver Selwyn Lymon,

    After having a good start to the draft with Long, Merling, and Henne…Parcells & Co. reached with Langford and then drafted some iffy players for who was left on the board…Then we bring in only 1-2 quality UDFA in Titus & Davone…after that, I had the players we brought in, especially at the WR position when there were so many players undrafted…Oh well, have to trust them…but I don’t like some of what they have done after the first 2 rounds of the draft and up to this camp

    I love what they have done.  You can’t win games in the NFL unless you have solid O and D lines and that’s what this draft and free agency has focused on.I do hope though, that we find a diamond in the rough, especially at receiver.  It would be nice to see someone like Bess or Reece or (Insert Player Name Here) to be this years Welker or Colston.  Hey, we can dream can’t we!
