Dolphins watch Arrelious Benn's impressive Pro Day

The wide receiver hungry Dolphins were on the Illinois campus over the weekend looking at a possible draft pick in the same place they found last year's first round pick in cornerback Vontae Davis.

The Dolphins had wide receiver coach Karl Dorrell on hand as to time, test, and talk to Arrelious Benn.

It was a good Pro Day for Benn by all accounts, as he ran a 4.42 and 4.40 on some watches but was timed as low as 4.38 on some stopwatches.

Benn also had a 37-inch vertical leap at 6-1 and 218 pounds).

To run a 4.40 at 6"1 and 218 pounds is a big deal. Those are very good measurables.

Benn ran a 4.47 and had a 37 inch vertical jump at the combine. nothing new here.

Sorta suprised, Benn a little smallish compared to D. Thomas and Damian Williams but gotta check everyone out...would be disappointed if they considering him as first pick though

The Dolphins could really use another 2nd or 3rd round pick (cant every team?). Tyler Thigpen is simply better than anyone on the Bills' roster (where his former offensive coordinater, Chan Gailey, is the head coach). Pure speculation, but I wouldnt be shocked if something happened there, especially since the Dolphins could convince the Bills that they would need really great compensation since they are trading a starting QB within the divison. So maybe the Dolphins could demand a 2nd or 3rd rounder (when he's probably worth a 4th), given that context.

Did benn improve on his route running and did he learn to catch the ball with his hands instead of his body with those inconsistent hands ? These are the things we need to know !

The scouts were also suprised at his height and miami isn't considering with the 1st pick. Maybe the 2nd pick .

Maybe I’m tired of some of the Jack Offs that have fu*cked up the blog to the point its sickening.

Run your mouth when I’m around, don't be a p u s s y.

To be a p u s s y or not to be a p u s s y, we know what the answer to that question is on this blog.

Funny thing is I haven't had beer one today.

Mando is working on that lil coward that hides behind many names...

Thats post for ALOCO.

Compensatory draft picks will be announced this week

miami will likely get a 6th or 7th.

WOW Po,do you really think "The meatball eating,misspelling, capital letter writing guy that is impersonating people" is Aloco????

It is funny because in looking at Arrelious Benn I see a lot of another guy with the same initials, Anquan Boldin. Not a blazing guy, or the greatest route runner (which can be improved) but he excels after the catch. His size presents mismatches, he is not Randy Moss big but the guy is put together. That Illinois team with Juice, Mendenhall and Benn was really good Benn's freshman year. His productivity leaves a lot to be desired, but I don't make too big a deal out of that. Him and Golden Tate are the two WRs I have locked in on for the 2nd round, although neither may be available.

Maybe I am wrong, but I understand the kid has very inconsistent hands. If that is the case, why he heck would we want another receiver who can't catch the ball? Already have Mr. Ginn as a project, we dont need another one with a high draft pick. I would rather we find a way to take the kid from Notre Dame (I doubt he drops to our second pick) or the kid from Ohio University who should be there at two. Both dont drop balls and are fast enough to get the job done.

We need wide receivers that are consistent while catching the ball, speed without good hands does no good! What ever happened with D. Thomas from Georgia Tech, that's the guy we should be concentrating on, in the second round.I still see the dolphins trading down and picking-up a second or third and choosing Graham the DE/OLB from Michigan, that's who we need in the first, but not at #12 pick,he would not be a valued pick that high!

Cuban Menace, I have been on this site for a minute now and you and your imaginary personas are annoying.Please post something intelligent or find your way to the "Jets" website(they probably share it with the Giants).It is frustrating to me to sort through your fodder when I am here for Miami Dolphins news and updates.I am not trying to pick an argument, I'm just saying man.Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Sammy, Dont know who you are nor do I really care,I'am sure your one of the Dalt's that think miami should draft a WR or acquire B.Marshall. I only post as myself and any moron that posts garbage(Ussually after 10 pm) is very annoying I agree, But trust me, I'am Patrolling the streets of long Island from 9pm to 6am Tuesday through sat. my friend, So please get a clue and dont insult me. Thank you very much.... And by the way I say go with Williams at #12....

Don't know and don't care CM.Tired of the worm whom ever he is, didn't like one of his posts on the last blog.

This blog is turning in to sh*t fast.

Cuban, B12, Rob in OC, Odin, carlito, Cocojoe Lips, Both of the Marks and even NJ who could work on his manners; I value our communications and think for the most part you all are great fellas. Tired of this worm with the Microscopic balls who has F.O.B.A.R this blog, It's no more fun and no one is doing any thing about it. Maybe if enough folks complain to Mando via email, as I have done he will do something about this D o u c h e b a g.

Good luck.

Oh yeah by the way sammy, Did'nt I nominate you for a couple of "PLUNGIES" for your stupid posts????I think I did......Well any way keep posting your "POSTS" we all need laughs now and again....lol....

cubam menace is a liar !. first he says a cop on coney island in a precinct in brooklyn and now it's long island.. He's not even a cop . LIAR ! We know your many me and other personalities on here.

See what i'm sayin CM, Multi named d o u c he.

Same guy hidin behind many a name.

Sign me up for that! Benn is a sick athlete and a good size. Worth a shot at a 2nd round price tag

Good night to the folks here that are not nut bag p u s s y s cowards.

Apperently sammy you dont understand it's the same city, I left Coney Island for better"Bussness" in Long Island...(less crime)(actually one of the lowest in our country) But thanks for remembering me...Love and kisses....

If anybody needs to be banned , it's po with his constant , excessive , vulger language. Take a look in the mirror.

LIAR !

Agree with you PO,(As always) But you just gotta ignore the idiots, Like Iam about to ignore Sammy......

IP YA LIAR. Go f*ck your self and pick a name coward. worm.

Every one email Mando about this "salad tossing" punk.

ANYWAY , No way miami picks Benn, to much needs to be done on the "D" though I must admit getting rid of Joey(DUHHH)Porter and Gibril(Why mom,why, did you name me this)(the Reggie(Kardashian)( highlight reel)Bush as a great start.......


Compensatory draft picks will be announced this week
Posted by: bobbyd12

You wait and see NE will be given like 15 Compensatory picks.

Yahoo Sports is Reporting the jets are going to make a move for Marshall. They don't think a 1st round pick is to much.

po, LET'S BE VERY CLEAR AND THAT I THINK THE WORLD OF YOU AND ROB ,WHEN I WROTE ONLY ONE POST I MEANT NO THING BUT PLAYING W/YOU BUT SINCE YOU DIDN'T LIKE IT I AM HAPPY TO SAY I AMM VERY SORRY AND SOME ONE FAKED MY NAME IN THE SECOND POST . PO , WE TALK EVERY NIGHT BUT I NEVER THOUGHT MAKING FUN OF A PERSON SO POLITE ANS SO NICE TO ALL .AGAIN I AM SORRY .

So the news is Miami was at a Pro Day ? Wow,
I'm shoched I tell ya !!!

Karl Dorrell is still with the Dolphins? The Fins WR corps dropped ball stats should have been enough to move him on down the line.

Look at the list of WRs coming out this year, pick the ones that are clear #2s or worse and they will be at the top of Miami's list. Why? Simple - this is a ball control, TE/RB oriented, short passing game team. #1 receivers are not necessary in this offense. Whatever Mando says, whatever any of us want, those are the facts, Jack. I know Mando said (in his article today) that the Fins have realized the lack of a #1 the last two years was a mistake but he is going off Jeff Irelands statement. Ireland lies to reporters. A lot. In this case, he is talking out of his backside. The Fins have not realized the lack of a #1 is a mistake. They like it that way.

This is not to say that their idea of an offense will work. I believe Mando is right and most of us are right that they need a #1. I just know it's not going to happen.

A fast TE with good hands - absolutely. Look for that in the draft - maybe as high as a 2nd, especially if they can trade down (Dallas/Arizona/Tampa - they have two #2s). Might be the only offensive player taken - maybe a late round WR who play exactly like Hartline, Ginn and Cam. Or maybe an RB too. But not until 6 or 7.

Let's talk football here beotches.

Alex, you need reading comprehension lessons, the yahoo article was things the guy was thinking about not things that were gonna happen.

From the Bucs Bleacher Report:

"Some said that Benn looked really good at the combine, but while reporting on it, this reporter saw a receiver that was not focused, ran sloppy routes, and who had arms that were so big he could hardly catch a ball. He looks very Braylon Edwards-like."

Things that make you go Hmmmm.

Jimmy Jam, you are a retard, Miami doesn't want talent at wr ? Oh, ok, rolling eye's !

Everyone should e mail armando about PO's vulger Language on this blog.

Hartline is a stud, all you Anquan and Marshall ball washers will be washing his come training camp.

See, who am I talkin to? Tired of this game.

Thanks AL(If its you) but I can be more productive reading CNBC.

Ya'll have fun....

Email Mando bout this worm who ever he is.

Hey Po, why don't you go eat some ramen noodle and spam and stfu !

You see it was ALOCO and he apoligized. no po needs to apologize with that language

IT'S ME PO , PEACE ..

I agree with Yawn Boy on PO. STFU already

People keep talking about trading down...You have to have a trade partner to do that, and I didn't see much of that happening last year. I think teams are starting to realize the value of their draft picks, and are much more reticent to give away a pick to move up a bit in any round.
Please don't talk anymore about the Dolphins trading UP for anyone. The trifecta may be mere mortals when it comes to their draft selections, but they are not chumps...

IP DEPT////////////////////TO BE OR NOT TO BE ..YOU ARE A BROWN LITTLE DONKEY W/BROWN EYES .

Aloco is manning up and wants peace.

Dear Mr. Salguero

I was told to email you about Salad Tossing and Vulgar language.

If I do this would I be considered a snitch ?

If I don't email you about Salad Tossing and Vulgar language will the blog police arrest me ?

Deeply concerned

Soiled :)

Jimmy, I agree Jeff Ireland should have been a politician, and amando reports "This and that" on with what this guy say's... I'ad hate to be this guys wife.....or significant other(not that there's anything wrong with that...)

very nice, i want peace and i want to be on po's corner also.for he's a nise guy .

TO BE OR NOT TO BE ,TIME FOR THE MEATBALL SUB .

NICE

Soiled nobody like a RAT ! TRUST ME !

SOILED.............GIVE US AN UPDATE ABOUT THE NJ PHIN THE PLUMBER .

Soiled nobody LIKES A RAT !

If D Thomas runs well at his pro day i have seen some people say he could be the 1st WR taken, I don't think he makes it to MIA's 2nd.

No offense to anyone specific, to think we'd get a 2nd or 3rd for Thigpen? There is no chance. Trade picks are so valuable now, I'd love another 2nd, such a deep draft, but it's going to be hard to pick one up. I don't know that I would want to see them trade back far enough in the 1st as it would take to get a 2nd. I would just love to see someone that can rush the passer in 1. I can't see it being an offensive guy in 1. OLB,FS, maybe NT

AHHHHHHHHH my good friend with the soiled bottom.. What are your thoughts on the upcoming draft???(Football question) and will you be voting "DODSWORTH/MENACE2016" just curious...

Dear Mr. Salguero

Why are people upset about Salad Tossing anyway ?

Its a lost art you know.

Getting the Cucumber and Cherry Tomatoes spaced evenly while people watch you can be quite nerve racking.

Just wondering what the hubub was about.

Soiled :)

LOL @ SOILED..............Classic Soilled bottom...........

SOILED, ANY UPDATES ABOUT THE NJ PHIN THE PLUMBER ?
