Post ESPN Insider: Fins' pass-catching options
A bit of a summary of our WR position.

Fins' pass-catching options
Miami Dolphins


The Miami Dolphins added some key pieces to their defense by way of the draft in April, but before that, they shifted some major pieces in their receiving corps, acquiring Brandon Marshall and shipping Ted Ginn Jr. to the San Francisco 49ers.

In looking ahead at what the Dolphins' receiving corps might look like this season, one position of interest is at tight end. Despite rumors that the team would address the position in this year's draft, Miami passed on several highly regarded prospects, and Anthony Fasano remains the team's No. 1 tight end. Mike Berardino of the Sun Sentinel writes that Fasano is looking forward to playing alongside Marshall, hoping to benefit statistically in the same way that tight end Tony Scheffler did in Denver. The Dolphins might think Fasano has it in him -- after all, they didn't snap up a pass-catching TE like Aaron Hernandez (selected by the New England Patriots) in the draft.

Meanwhile, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald writes that the starting spot opposite Marshall will go to either Brian Hartline or Greg Camarillo, and that the battle will be one to keep an eye on during training camp. Camarillo has the better hands of the two, but Hartline has better size and speed than his teammate. The Sun Sentinel's Omar Kelly writes that while Camarillo has proven him wrong in the past with his surprising play, he thinks Hartline's physical gifts will ultimately make him the team's No. 2 target in 2010.

On May 13, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald wrote that he believes Hartline will win the starting receiver position opposite Marshall, meaning Davone Bess would not be a starter but instead would be a potential candidate for slot receiver. This isn't the worst news in the world for Bess, as it means he could still see some considerable action in three- or four-wide sets, and as a result get more big-play opportunities with opponents preoccupied with Marshall on the outside.

As Tim Graham writes, the team will have to prepare for the season without Marshall, as an injury should keep him out for most of the offseason.

Will be a good battle. But, I expect Hartline to win because his upside is greater and his age younger. Cam will still alternate with him and get plenty of playing time.

Its funny that the "ESPN Insider" article just quoted 3 local writer's thoughts on the dolphins WR position, and used it as the meat for their own article?.......nice to see EPSN did their own homework on this one and came up with some very intriguing info...... :awe:

The funny thing is that until now phins fans were the only ones who believed in the wr corps. Yes Marshall makes a difference but, I think the bigger difference is Henne's development and Hennings understanding of what he has in this wr corps now.

IMHO before Marshall arrived we had the most underrated WR corps in the league. If you factor in a young QB, no true #1, and a very conservative OC, we overachieved. With the addition of Marshall, we could have the best complementing WR corps in the league, but only if Henning uses these weapons accordingly.
