Just a few other notes from the beat guys:
Volin also states that Jerry showed up in much better shape, probably weighing in around 350ish.
O Kelly saying that Olivier Vernon not only showed up with added muscle and size but that he has been training hard at the Dolphins facility since January. Maybe more noteworthy is he states that Ireland really likes Vernon.
We all know OT and DE have been highly discussed as early picks of need. These two guys, plus Martin, having a lightbulb go off and working hard to address their issues allows Miami to draft for value rather than need.
Jerry is going to have a full-blown battle on his hands this year. Lance Louis is a very athletic pulling guard that could easily unseat him if he doesn't step his game up and cut some weight.
Vernon is a guy who I think deserves more playing time. If he is able to break out and steal more playing time away from Odrick, then I think that could help take some pressure off of Wake.
In fact, the entire 2012 draft class has a lot to prove. This year all of them are expected to step into much bigger roles. Tannehill is going to have to step up his game and try to lead this team to the playoffs. Martin might have to take over the left tackle job full-time if we can't get someone else to play left tackle. Miller is going to go from the bench to being the feature back. Vernon is going to be asked to be more than just a situational passrusher and special teamer. Egnew is going to have to actually step up and earn playing time if he wants to make the team. Same goes for the rest of the draft class, they'll all need to bust their tails if they want to keep a roster spot. It's a big year for the 2012 draft class to say the least.
