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).

Dear Mr. Menace

"What are your thoughts on the upcoming draft??"

If the Draft was good enough for my grand daddy in World War 2 then I think its good enough for todays young scallywags.

Not sure what that question had to do with football though.

"and will you be voting "DODSWORTH/MENACE2016" just curious..."

Yes I will be behind Dodsworth/Menace...as long as your ticket is pro medical marijuana.

Soiled :)

GIVE ME SAFTEY EARL THOMAS IN ROUND 1, WIDE RECEIVER DEMARYIUS THOMAS IN ROUND 2 AND DT LINVAL JOSEPH IN ROUND 3. IF THIS HAPPENS, I'LL BE A HAPPY DOLPHIN FAN!!!!!

Fins would take Brandon Lafell before they would take Benn!!!!

JHON, I SECOND THAT .

Can you say smokescreen

SMOKESCREEN

Yes I will be behind Dodsworth/Menace...as long as your ticket is pro medical marijuana.

Didn'T are current president/socialist leader already agree on this????And yes I agree that Young people should be in the "Draft" whether it be military or football...(Football talk)

CUBAN IS THE ARTFUL WRITER OF FOOTBALL.

WHERE'S CARLITO ? IS HE BACK TO MEXICO ?I MISS HIM .

Dont help me aLOCO.............

No receivers `till the fourth round!!! That is unless we can get a second second. We`ve allready got enough receivers to fireld a team. We don`t have a starting Free Safety or a quality Nose Tackle for at least 8 games. And who`s going to rush the QB????
Just get over it Dolphans, Next year is the year to address the skill positions.
Build through the draft is what we keep hearing and the Defense needs work this year.

COWTOWN ? CAN YOU GIVE A BRIEF ON YOU TOWN ?

Agree cowtown... Build the "D"

Yard Boy - I never said that. They have very good talent in Hartline, Bess and Camarillo. But this is the level of talent they want is what I'm saying. They want possession guys for the most part. Maybe a down the field guy who isn't elite (but can catch). But no true number one ala Larry Fitzgerald, T.O. (of old), Randy moss, B. Marshall, etc. A Boldin clone would fit into their offense - a no-nonsense guy who is solid and will add to the offense when they need to shake it up, but not an elite guy - and not an expensive guy - and not an older, injury prone guy for whom they'd have to give up a 3rd and a 4th in a draft where their picks are so important. They are not looking to turn this into a pass happy offense like the Marks Bros - that is all I am getting at.

This draft will be primarily about defense, as we all know. The limited offensive choices will consist of a really good, fast pass-catching TE. This will be the highest offensive pick and will possibly be in the 2nd round. Barring someone like McCluster (hey, not my guy but he is rated pretty well and that's my point - a guy they just can't turn their backs on) falling into their laps, that'll be it for offense until the later rounds. And the choices there will be relatively pedestrian - barring, of course, finding a diamond amongst the coal.

And one other thing - there is no need to sling insults. If you disagree with me, all you have to do is say why - that allows for an interesting exchange of ideas and, thus, an interesting blog.

Look, I'd be happier than a pig in poo if they went out and got themselves an elite WR (hell, I was practically screaming for Marshall a couple of weeks ago and would still be happy if they brought him here - not for a first though). I am a realist, however, and see how this offense is built and what the current needs are. So let's get off it - of course they want talent at WR, just not the kind of talent that you, I, many others in Finland, or Mando want.

Dear Mr. Salguero

The Plumbers of Bergan County

Episode 5

When we last saw our hero NJ he was writing a meatball cookbook with help from Aloco during congical visits.

With the NFL draft drawing closer NJ hatchs a plan for escape.

Security being light from the recent suspention of Officer Menace for accepting bribes(mostly ho ho's and ding dongs and victoria's secret catalogs)

NJ makes a special batch of Koolaid for Dr. Rob in the OC and Warden Salguero.

Will Warden Salguero and Dr. Rob swallow the Koolaid and believe our hero is innocent and set him free ?

Will officer Menace switch to his left hand to even out his freakisly strong right hand grip ?

Tune in and see what your kids are watching.

Soiled :)

I'm GLAD THEY ARE AT LEAST LOOKIN WHAT's OUT THERE.

BUT FELLAS IF YOU WANT TO INSTANTLY BECOME CONTENDERS TRADE THIS YEARS 2 and NEXT YEARS 2 FOR MARSHALL.

SHI+ THIS YEARS 1 AND LET's MOVE ON.

EVEN CHAD THINK SO.

LMFAO At Soiled, maybe your best writing Sir.

SOILED.................FOR EVER GREAT.

CUBAN AND BRIBES ARE VERY REALISTIC......LOL

The Canadian Cowtown: a prairie city with a population of 1042892 people as of last year. We have one pro football team and won the Grey Cup most recently in 2008. One NHL hockey team who are dissapointing me immensly this year but that is a story for a different blog.
Most people here make their living from the oil and gas industry. Natural gas being the most important of the two, however with the development of the tar sands in Northern Alberta there is definately more in that sector coming up.
Winters here last too long and I personally wish NFL season was more a winter game so my annual Miami Dolphin trip would be in January not October or November( I cant get away in December). Summers are nice with long evenings. On June 21 the sun sets at 9:54 pm and twilight lasts till almost 11:15 pm.
The name Cowtown refers to our Beef which we believe to be the best in North America. The best of which is all grass raised without steroids and you can get from a goob butcher without feed lots.Mmmmmmm Mmmmm Good.
And thanks for asking Mr Menace. By the way are you related to the famous wrestler the Cuban Assasin who wrestled for Stu Hart up here for years.

Soiled is the William Shakespeare of blogs... We should all bow down at his brilliance's.....

THAT WAS A GOOD READ , THANKS COWTOWN .

I#m sorry to have adressed my comments to The Menace Mr ALoco.
Is it AL oco or is it A loco. Can you explain your pun:)

You know you've made it when you re on an episode of Soiled's Soaps.

Alas, I have yet to achieve such notariety

I ALREADY BOWED CUBAN .TONIGHT WE HAVE THE MASTER SOILED AND THE NEW COMER COWTOWN ,IT CAN'T GET BETTER .

I LOST MY FIRST POST

NO SUCH DIFFERNCE BETWEN ME AND THE CUBAN EXCEPT THE BRIBES COWTOWN .

No cowtown, But a admire your love for Where you live.Be a faithful "PHINFAN" an you too well one day realize the Sweating heat of a august day in dade county my friend...lol

DO ANYBODY ELSE LOSE POST.

Feddie Barnes as a late round pick would be awesome but only Bay bay would be worth a 2nd.

JUSTIN , SO WHAT YOU LOST A POST,IT'S MOSTLY CRAB ANY WAY .

Jeremy . cuban menace and ALoco are one in the same. Same person. aloco = cuban menace

SAMMY, PROVE IT DONKEY

Guys did you see at the combine on nfl network when Sean Weatherspoon was going through his drills Sparano was all giddy on his chair and grabbed his cell phone right away to make a call. I think fins go with LB and it will be a stud in spoon. Guys spoon or would you take Graham.!!!!!!!!

Mr Soiled Bottom , can you tell us a story how when the cuban menace arrives on this blog , so does Aloco at the same exact time ?

LET'S GO BACK TO TALK FOOTBALL ONLY PLEASE ....................FOOTBALL,DRAFT .

At times Ive wondered if they arent Salguero himself. It was Cuban who first pointed out Ginns love for the sidelines and aligator arms. But I decided that Armando wasnt that smart.

sammy, your being ignored like a drunk in a AA meeting, go to sleep lil man......(and the Lil man comes from your girl)lol..........

SAMMY, I TELL YOU HOW , IT'S THE SAME WHEN NJ COMES W/ACE AND COMES W/BOBBYD12 AND ROB W/ODINESE AND SO ON ...TO BE OR NOT TO BE ,DONKEY .

You see ? and now the menace/aloco want to change subjects

Weathespoon vs Graham!!!! What to do!!!

NO SAMMY , STAY ON YOUR SUBJECT...TELL US MORE

WEATHERSPOON

none of them

At times Ive wondered if they arent Salguero himself. It was Cuban who first pointed out Ginns love for the sidelines and aligator arms. But I decided that Armando wasnt that smart.

LOL@ Jeremy, It's true me and amando are related through marriage, but that post is great, Actually Mandi is smart but unfortunately has burnt one to many bridges,,,,,,,,,

Neither ...Take Earl Thomas if the dont want to pay the price to move up and get Berry. Both of those guys can make plays. Personally I want them to trade down to about 20 and get Thomas. That extra 2nd or third would work wonders in this draft.BTW the draft chart says it should be a second to move down to 20.

BENNS WORKOUT IS A SMOKESCREEN FOR THE FINS. IT IS WAY TOO QUIET AT FINS CAMP. IF THE JETS END UP WITH MARSHALL GET THE MALOX!!!!

HANK FAKE ALOCO AT 9;15 ....I AM OUT FOR THE NIGHT , NOW YOU THE FAKE .

THANKS FAKE

ALOCO

YOU're RITE. I ONLY SPEAK ABOUT FOOTBALL.

I LET YOU AND THE BI+CHES. BI+CH. SO HAVE FUN.

KEEP PROMOTING THAT LITTLE FS YOU LIKE OR BETTER YET REACH FOR THAT NT.

I'd going to be Cody and blow your minds !!!

JUSTIN , GOD BLESS YOU .I DIDN'T MEAN TO INSULT YOU BUT PEACE .

saw Sparano eat a italian sub while Weatherspoon was working out. That is a clue, when he likes someone he eats, when he doesn't he looks like he is constipated !

Posted by: P.I Man | March 21, 2010 at 09:21 PM

wtf!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think it will be weatherspoon because i saw sparano eating coconut ice cream with a spoon while watching him. the spoon was a dead give away.

FUNNY T

No it was a sandwich given to sparano by Rex Ryan!!!!!

IT MADE MORE SINCE THAN MOST REASONS PEOPLE UP HERE GIVE.

Ok guys and girls(and those in between)(not that there's anything wrong with that) I bib you all "ADIUE" have a "PHINTASTIC" nite..........

How could that be John...Rex always finishes what he eats. His Momma taught him good food etequite. However people etequitte was his Daddys job.
