    Default Dolphins rookies make an impression

    Bowles said fifth-round safety Chris Clemons ''has been a pleasant surprise. He hasn't blown anything. And he's got great speed.'' Clemons should emerge as a second-team safety, with Tyrone Culver, and be an asset on special teams. One NFC personnel director predicted Clemons will be the under-the-radar standout of this draft class.

    The Dolphins hope sixth-rounder Andrew Gardner develops into Jake Long's backup, but it's too soon to tell. The reserve tackle who has drawn the most raves is Nate Garner

    Good to hear about Clemons my gut told me to like him.

    It's good to see that he can produce in PJs. I'm really looking forward to seeing him knock some skulls around.

Thus, suffering completely fills the human soul and conscious mind, no matter whether the suffering great or little. Therefore, the "size" of human suffering is absolutely relative." - Viktor Frankl

    Arrow Sports Buzz: Miami Dolphins rookies make an impression

    Some quotes from the article by Barry Jackson.

    Sean Smith-This looks like a great pick.
    Smith made the most plays of the three in practices that were open to the media, and several veterans raved about him. ''A freak of nature,'' receiver Davone Bess said. ``It's rare to see a guy with that size [6-3] move the way he does. He can defend big ones and small ones.'' Green said Smith, the 61st pick in the NFL Draft, ``picked up the system really fast. You rarely see that from young guys this early. There are definitely things that need to be polished, but he's a guy you can use in the red zone against Randy Moss.''
    Patrick Turner-Has impressed so far.
    When a few veterans were asked what rookie stood out, the name mentioned most was Patrick Turner, who extended his body to make several catches. Turner, 6-5, has a good chance to open as the No. 4 receiver. ''If you ask our defensive backs, they say he runs better than we thought,'' receivers coach Karl Dorrell said.
    Pat White-The jury is still out but at least he looks like he belongs running the ball.
    'You want every ball to be on the money, but it doesn't work that way,'' White said, blaming his inaccuracy on ``body position, my feet being wide.''But teammates were impressed by his running ability in spread formations. ''He runs by and you think it's a running back running by,'' guard Shawn Murphy said. ``He's that quic
    A pleasant surprise has been Clemons .Players so far that look like were bad picks are Nalbone and J.D. Folsom
    There is much more .I suggest you read the whole article.

    Game four will define the line-up, until then everything is speculation

    we may end up with 2 steals in this draft: Clemons and Gardner ... but that won't be determined until next year ...

    I don't consider Smith or Turner as potential steals ... albeit, Smith at 61 could be great value.
