    Working with Bess is certainly the best way to go about achieving his goals. You won't find a harder worker.

    Wallace could be that receiving threat we need down the seem. a little light, but fast enough to be an absolute nightmare for linebackers and big enough to shred safeties. fasano can block.

    I would hope that he is a little bit concerned. He still needs to win his spot on the team and should be concerned that there is someone else that is going to come in and try to win his spot....

    I would like to see him or Pruitt take the 5th spot. If we don't sign a FA WR, that is.

    I think Wallace is going to be facing some stiff competition this year. I think the Dolphins like past years will only carry five receivers this upcoming season. Marshall, Bess, Hartline and Gates are pretty much stone cold locks to make the 53 man roster. That means as of right now it is between Moore, Wallace, Foster, Pruitt and Carter for that last roster spot, and that is before we even hit free agency and sign undrafted free agents.

    I love Wallace's size and potential, but I have to give the early edge to Moore. Though I think we can all agree that having to choose between those two for the 5th spot is a GOOD problem to have.

    I would go with Wallace as the 5th WR because of his simultaneous value on special teams.

    Moore has decent speed but he does not have strong hands at all. If contested or in traffic, he isn't strong enough to handle it. With Gates coming in, Moore is as good as gone unless he improves significantly.

    Wallace brings more to the table in terms of special teams. He has stronger hands than Moore and gives us the only depth option in the case Marshall gets hurt or infirmed. Wallace provides a nice red zone target and more potential IMO.

    At the end of the day, it has nothing to do with what we say but how they perform and they will all have a chance. If Moore has improved his hand strength, maybe he wins the day. But I think Wallace is in the better position to be our 5th receiver.

    I think he should be worried. He's competing with a handful of other guys for the last receiver spot.

    If I played for the Miami Dolphins, I probably wouldn't worry about competition either.

    Roberto Wallace could be the next Miles Austin/Malcolm Floyd type story.

    Moore has no upside, give me a break.

    The guy I'm wondering about is Brooks Foster. The scouting reports all say he is a fast WR with good hands and great strength. He just has never lived up to expectations out on the field.

    Apparently it's a head/heart thing with him, because he has all the tools to be a solid NFL WR.
