Post La Canfora: Wake and Smith to be Household Names
http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d8 ... ule=HP_cp2

Quote:
Sean Smith, CB, Dolphins
He had moments of brilliance as a rookie in 2009 and was asked to play right away at a difficult position. Smith should take major steps in 2010 and be more consistent. Another guy with a freak-of-nature body, he has smothering size to go with elite quickness. His cover skills will continue to develop. If some of the Dolphins' other key youngsters are ready, and the team gets a push from its front seven, I expect Smith to make many plays as opponents continue to test Miami's youthful secondary.


Cameron Wake, OLB, Dolphins
Wake faced a difficult transition going from CFL sack champ to NFL part-time player in 2009, but he made the adjustment over time. He got much better in the second half of the season and has the quickness to strike fear in opposing quarterbacks. Players in this role on a Bill Parcells team tend to flourish. With guys like Joey Porter and Jason Taylor no longer around, the time is now for Wake.

Devin Aromashodu...a guy I was excited about when Miami got him, but they kept Derek Hagan instead :(

6 of one half dozen of the other........ You were excited about one guy, they kept another... Neither is worth a crap and are 2nd/3rd string on another team now....


Wake and Smith have done more in their first season as Miami Dolphins individually than Hagan and Aro combined...

Aro is getting a little too much attention I think... his numbers were subpar and everyone is on him like he's Jerry Rice... c'mon now.

I'll ignore acjed's post...
I wasn't jumping on him like he's great or anything. His "numbers" are from like two games last year...so of course it's 'subpar." He's getting attention because he's becoming a very good go to target for Cutler, and if Cutler can throw 20+ touchdowns in a bad year, that means Aromashodu can put up big numbers.
Is he great? No. Can he be a household name? More than Derek Hagan, and that's all i was saying.

I wasn't so much trying to say that you were jumping on him, but a lot of analysts and fantasy football sites are... it's troubling.
