UF's Josh Evans has ties inside the Dolphins

I made the point in the last post that the Dolphins should know the kids coming out of the University of Miami and Florida International University better than any other team because of the proximity of those two schools. Well, throw in the University of Florida and Florida State, too.

Years ago, the Patriots had a great in at Florida because New England coach Bill Belichick and Gators coach Urban Meyer (now at Ohio St.) are great friends.

But the Dolphins are not without ties to the UF program and players. One player in particular to watch is safety Josh Evans.

He wrote an eloquent combine diary for onlygators.com and I suggest you check out the entire piece.

Basically, Evans met with the entire Dolphins coaching staff at the combine. (He also met with Washington, San Francisco, Tampa and Dallas among others.)

What stood out about Miami's meet is that Evans has a great connection with Dolphins assistant DB coach Blue Adams. Adams recruited Evans out of high school for Purdue.

"It was funny to meet up again because we had a great relationship when I was in high school," Evans tells onlygators.com. "When I was coming up, he showed me a lot of love, and now to see him on the professional level there is a sort of comfort to know this guy actually knows who I am. He knows my character, knows I’m not a problem child and knows I’m someone who is striving to be successful in life."

That's excellent news as one hopes Adams will expand on his relationship when discussing him within the Dolphins facility.

Evans was something of a disappointment in the 40 at the combine, running 4.58. But he has a reason: He tweaked a hamstring prior to the run. He'll get another chance at the Florida Pro Day.

If you are wondering why all the coverage of safeties lately, you should understand that is an area of need for Miami. Chris Clemons is an unrestricted free agent. If he doesn't that is a hole for Miami. But even if he does, which I expect, the Dolphins have no real depth at the position.

They had to sign Tyrone Culver late last season to be the backup when they really had no plans of bringing him back when training camp closed and he was cut.

The need doesn't rise to the first-round status, but it will be a discussion later on. Evans might be a fit. And by the way, Evans is training in Boca. That's really close to the Dolphins' training facility.

Easy Choice needs a girl friend or a boy friend. Something to take his mind off all the alias conspiracy theories.


Posted by: Yesterday's Gone 4Ever! | February 28, 2013 at 04:13 PM

Stop and go Yeast boy seriously, its too DAMN EASY too make you look more like an idiot than your average everyday typical one, you staying here and responding is more and more evident in that as you post back your responses


LoL

I'd probably resign Clemmons for 3-4 mil and sign a draft a rookie late. Team has too many holes to move on to besides safety.

Leave Ireland alone already he's doing a good job , second tannehill is the real deal you stupid stupid people and third off he will fix this mess this year

More stupid shite YG says ...

Anyone that knows the English language knows that the following quote by YG...

But proper english is I have "already proven"

Is not proper English and not gramatically correct because it is written in a passive tense. Nice try retard superstar. Try buying a Thesaurus. Tomorrow is the first of the month, the government will ensure that you could afford it if you don't spend it all on Colt .45.

LoL

Posted by: Mark in Toronto | February 28, 2013 at 04:42 PM

Boy toy freak, it's "past tense", not passive tense. Regardless of what the Wild Ape Institute Of Higher Learning has engrained in your hairy sloping forehead. LOL...

Nice to stop in to see what the chatter is today, just to see YG and some other Dbag going at it page after page after page...once again.
