-- Top performers: 1. DE Dion Jordan (2 sacks); 2. WR Damian Williams (flashed all day); 3.RB Damien Williams (moving up depth chart)

-- Joe Philbin said Damian Williams has a second gear. When he catches the ball he's able to separate from people.

-- "We haven't been super productive on offense. Lets get that on the table because it is a fact," Philbin said. ...

-- "Every single day it is a push," Bill Lazor on pushing them tempo on offense.

-- Bill Lazor said his number one goal Is to play with tempo. "At the snap of the ball we have to play fast."

-- "Our leaders must step forward," Bill Lazor said of the Dolphins offense.

-- Bill Lazor said he's pleased with the team's effort, guys are playing fast. "As a coach you want to deal with guys who work with you."

-- "I think the offensive line is coming along right on schedule," Bill Lazor said. ...

-- Tannehill to Egnew TD!! ...

-- Lamar Miller up middle...comes up limping (again)...doesn't look serious but not 1st time he limped today.

-- Lamar Miller getting medical attention. ...

It's to be expected that the O will struggle, it's just how long will they struggle, will they get this sorted out early enough is the question.

And more young talent acquired.

Quote:
Gator Hoskins - TE - Dolphins
According to the Palm Beach Post, undrafted rookie TE Gator Hoskins has "emerged" at camp and the team may be forced to keep him.
Coach Joe Philbin said he'll likely keep three-to-five tight ends. Charles Clay sits atop the depth chart, while the remainder of the pecking order is unsettled. Others in the mix are Michael Egnew, Dion Sims, and rookie Arthur Lynch. Egnew's spot is likely in the most danger, as he hasn't done much of anything in his two seasons. Hoskins is a "move" tight end and is worth monitoring in deeper Dynasty leagues with Charles Clay in the final year of his contract.

I'll jump on the young talent when these guys put the pads on and play in regular games. Not undrafted rookies and camp fodder that are intriguing. Ditto for the #2 overall pick who is suspended for 4 games.

I was really happy when we signed Williams after the draft. I hope he becomes a playmaker in Miami.

BOTTOM LINE Split time in a three-man backfield until being dismissed from the team for his multiple violations of team rules. Must prove he can stay disciplined and learn what it means to be a pro to make it. Is best running outside in a spread offense that features wide running lanes and could bring the most value to a team as a pass catcher in a change-of-pace role.

That's encouraging news but I'm sure he'll be practice squad material.

No way does he make it to the practice squad Dave, he's too good. Every team now knows that they made a mistake by not drafting him 7 times, what idiots!!! he's young and he's emerging as a playmaker.
