Post Barry Jackson - Monday Sports Buzz - Fins Camp Updates
### Impressive day for Ryan Tannehill, who threw two touchdowns to Mike Wallace, a dart in the middle of the end zone to Brian Hartline for a touchdown and another great throw that should have been a touchdown to Charles Clay (who dropped it). He threw one interception (to Jimmy Wilson) but also wisely threw the ball away when nothing was there.

### Wallace, as we wrote a couple times last week, is in clearly better spirits. One reason is that he loves Bill Lazor’s offense and the flexibility it gives him to change where he lines up.

Mike Sherman wouldn’t permit him to do that last year, and Wallace said today that as a result, opposing defenses knew exactly where he was going to be.

### Of the move of Koa Misi to middle linebacker, defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle said: “I can’t commit today to saying it’s a done deal but I like what I’m seeing. So far, so good. Koa has such a physical presence. When Koa hits you, you stay hit for a while. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve used Koa an an example of how you compete each and every snap on defense. Last year, I felt I didn’t keep him in the game as often as I could have. We’ve got to get him more involved. He’s a big man, strong, explosive. He takes a tremendous amount of pride in doing little things the right way.”

### Coyle raved about the two new starters in the secondary: safety Louis Delmas and cornerback Cortland Finnegan: “Two great additions, lot of enthusiasm, smart, instinctive guys. They’ve been a pleasure to coach. They will bring an energy, toughness, fierce competitiveness. They are both vocal guys. Louis goes 100 miles an hour with everything he’s doing. Sees formations quickly. Sometimes you’ve got to reign him back in a little bit. He’s never slowing down.”

### Will Davis was beaten for a touchdown by Armon Binns today, but Coyle said he made an interception Friday “that was out of this world. SportsCenter [worthy]. Every day we’re seeing significant improvement from Will and Jamar [Taylor]. You see confidence growing every day.”

### Knowshon Moreno continues to work primarily with the second team, with Lamar Miller taking a lot of first team snaps. Moreno dropped a pass today and Joe Philbin conceded that his conditioning could be better.

### Jelani Jenkins got a significant number of first team reps, ahead of Dannell Ellerbe, but Philbin suggested not to read anything into it.

It would be VERY surprising if Ellerbe isn’t the starter.

### The Dolphins are giving a lot of reps to 6-5 receiver Stephen Williams; they like his size, but he dropped a short, easy catch and it would be shocking if he makes the team.

### Random stuff: As we wrote a couple weeks ago, Marcus Thigpen has been moved to receiver, at least for now… Brent Grimes was beaten several times, including by Wallace, but obviously no need for concern with a player of his caliber…. Pat Devlin made a great pass to Matt Hazel…

Dallas Thomas got first-team reps at left guard… Practice began with a double reverse, with Hartline tossing it to Wallace. Good stuff… Don Jones dropped an interception…

There were several rollouts by Tannehill to avoid pressure…. Randy Starks and Cam Wake got heat on the quarterback several times…. Caleb Sturgis missed a field goal from 42 yards but made another from that distance. ... tices.html

Lots of good things in progress with this team. Really happy about Misi's progress at middle.
