|With Miller surprisingly remaining undrafted in the 4th round of this year’s draft, the Dolphins pounced, moving up to acquire the former University of Miami speedster. At 5’11” and 212 pounds, he has solid size to go along with his 4.4 40-yard speed. Miller was available in the 4th round due to injury concerns but likely would have otherwise been a 2nd round selection. Unfortunately, he will enter training camp 3rd on the depth chart behind Reggie Bush and Daniel Thomas. However, given Bush’s injury history and Thomas’ ineffectiveness as a rookie, Miller could surprise in 2012. He is worth drafting in deeper redraft leagues and rates as an upper tier prospect in dynasty formats.
| Moreno to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery -- Mon Jun 23 9:35 pm --|
Expected to miss 4-5 weeks
|RB Knowshon Moreno will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery this week and miss 4-5 weeks. The Dolphins hope to have Moreno back in time for the start of the preseason. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: At least now we finally have a reason as to why Moreno was a little heavy for offseason workouts - his knee was never truly healthy. Lamar Miller was running with the first team for most of OTAs, but at least Moreno has a realistic shot at fighting for the starting spot with the 4-5 week timetable. Assuming Moreno is healthy in time for camp, there's a good chance he'll be part of a committee attack with Miller this season.
| Knowhson Moreno may need knee surgery -- Fri Jun 20 8:58 am --|
Moreno's knee injury "bad" according to source
|Talked to a source who has seen Knowshon Moreno's knee. Said it's "bad." Prob will play, but the issue is how long. (Jason Cole via Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: There still isn't any concrete word from the Dolphins but various reports suggest that Moreno's left knee is the issue and he may visit with a doctor next week. Moreno signed a one-year deal during the off-season. Lamar Miller ran with the first team during mini-camp this week.
|Mike Wallace in "better spirits" this season -- Mon Jun 2 5:40 pm --|
Knowshon Moreno running behind Lamar Miller in camp
|Mike Wallace is in clearly better spirits this year. One reason is that he loves Bill Lazor’s offense and the flexibility it gives him to change where he lines up. Mike Sherman wouldn’t permit him to do that last year, and Wallace said today that as a result, opposing defenses knew exactly where he was going to be.
Knowshon Moreno continues to work primarily with the second team, with Lamar Miller taking a lot of first team snaps. Moreno dropped a pass today and Joe Philbin conceded that his conditioning could be better. (Miami Herald)|
FF Today's Take: Wallace languished last season under Sherman, who refused to move him across the formation and used him mostly as a glorified clear-out receiver. It appears as if Lazor wants to use the ex-Steeler in the same way the Eagles used DeSean Jackson in 2013. As for Moreno, Miller is a superior talent, so the free-agent signee cannot afford a negative first impression - especially considering he is on a one-year deal.
