The Dolphins lost some speed at the end of the season when Brian Hartline was sidelined because of an injured finger. With Brandon Marshall, Davone Bess and Hartline, the Dolphins have a solid corps at wide receiver, but even with a healthy Hartline, we hear they could look for more speed for next year's roster. One route they could take is drafting a speedy wide receiver who is also a return specialist. CB Nolan Carroll handled kickoff returns, and he showed flashes of speed with 19 of his 24 returns going for more than 20 yards, but there wasn't really anyone else on the roster with breakaway speed. The last player the team had in the WR-KR role, Ted Ginn Jr., who was the ninth overall pick in 2007, didn't pan out as the team had hoped. A speedster to complement Hartline could be another addition that we'll see in the 2011 offense that owner Stephen Ross wants to be "aggressive and creative."

Torrey Smith, WR/KR, Maryland
6'1" - 205
Good hands and 4.3 speed. The guy holds the ACC record for kick return yardage and the Maryland record for all-purpose yardage. Think of Darius Heyward-Bey if he was able to catch the ball and run good routes and that is Torrey Smith. He holds the single season Maryland record for touchdowns as well. He caught four in a single game this year. He's the kind of upgrade we'd be looking for at wideout.

Noel Devine, RB/PR, West Virginia
5'8" - 180
Fast as heck and has the ability to take it to the house every time he touches the ball. The kid is a human highlight reel. Michael Irvin called him a young Barry Sanders. Bottom line, the kid has some serious talent. If we could find a way to work him in as a change of pace back, he could really give the offense a spark. He'd be our change of pace back and our punt returner.
