• In the weeks before the draft, we told you that the Dolphins (with coordinator Vance Joseph at the front of the line) preferred big corners such as Eli Apple, William Jackson and Dolphins second-rounder Xavien Howard to smaller corners such as UF's Vernon Hargreaves.

Reporters finally got a chance to ask Joseph why he feels that way.

"The receivers in the league are getting much bigger now," he said this past weekend. "Obviously, you look for good players first and if they have the size you want, its prototype. But you want guys who can cover first [and have] quickness, ball skills, good lateral movement stuff. The size is extra.”

But what about the argument that taller corners sometimes don't have good hips?

Howard "is a second-round pick," Joseph responded. "When you are drafting guys in the first and second round, you’re hoping [they] have size and the movement stuff. And [Howard] does. Most guys, when you draft them later on, they may have one redeeming quality. It could be size but not movement, but [Howard] does have both. He’s a 6-foot guy with a 5-foot-10 corner’s movement skills. That’s special.”

The Patriots use small receivers and they are the team we are trying to catch... The story points out wr's are getting bigger.

That being said we needed some good dbs added to the mix and a guy who can cover Marshall.

teams still need small shifty slot corners too.
We need Leon Hall to go head-to-head with New England.

Miami still has 2nd year player Bobby McClain and Ifo, if he able to come back from his knee. There a good chance Leon Hall will sign with Miami also.

Besides New England, you have bigger wide receivers in the AFC East.

I'm interested to see what Ifo can do in training camp. I've been rooting for him since before he was drafted. If he comes back and plays to his ability, he'll be a good addition.

Hopefully he likes db's that can cover someone... Unlike our last DC.
