    Dolphins undrafted free agents
    Posted by Josh Alper on April 25, 2010 9:37 AM ET
    The Miami Dolphins seemed to place an emphasis on leadership during the draft. Seven of the eight players they selected were named captains of their college teams in 2009.

    That trend continued when they started signing undrafted free agents. Cornerback Ross Weaver only made one start for Michigan State, but he was one of four co-captains selected by his teammates during his senior season. Weaver had an interception and forced a fumble in the Alamo Bowl loss to Texas Tech.

    The other Dolphins undrafted free agent signees are Travis Ivey, DT, Maryland; AJ Wallace, CB, Penn State; Vince Oghobaase, DT, Duke; Roberto Wallace, WR, SDSU; Jonathan Amaya, DB, Nevada and Marlon Moore, WR, Fresno State.

    I think having guys like that is always good to have, not just for their leadership but because they tend to also be easier to coach up.

    But that also doesn't make them fool-proof. A guy like Pat White, for instance, is a high character guy with a terrific work ethic, yet is struggling to make it as an NFL player.

    Over time, the question about this draft may be about whether we were too conservative and got a bunch of solid, if unspectacular players and possibly wound up overlooking a terrific player or two because he didn't fully meet the criteria.

    One thing I also noticed about our UDFAs is that they all seem to have injury issues.
