Second and third-day players on Dolphins radar
http://miamiherald.typepad.com/dolphins ... radar.html
But the NFL draft will be a three-day affair and the first round is only the first of those days.
So today we concentrate a little on the lesser-known players. Today we give you some second- and third-day options in whom Miami has shown interest.
We start with Notre Dame wide receiver Golden Tate, who has been on Miami's radar for quite some time.
At 5-10 and 202 pounds, there are questions about Tate's ability to get off press coverage. But watch the kid and you'll see a tough player, a competitor. He will learn to get off the line and do it well.
South Dakota State outside linebacker Danny Batten has a visit scheduled with Miami
Batten is one of those guys that coaches simply call a football player.
Does he look amazing stepping off the bus? No. Does he measure out with incredible times? No.
Does he play well and hard? Yes.
Ohio State inside linebacker Austin Spitler has met with the Dolphins and that makes sense because the team is looking for a value pick late in the draft that could play special teams. J.D. Folsom was that player last year
The Dolphins have also met with TCU linebacker Daryl Washington. Washington is a productive outside linebacker
Included among the players visiting are Clemson wide receiver Jacoby Ford, who went to high school in Palm Beach, Florida safety Major Wright, who attended high school in Fort Lauderdale, and Miami tight end Jimmy Graham, who obviously played at the University of Miami.
All are second or third-day picks.
