    Thanks for that. Loving the Williams pick up, and am intrigued about Calhoun. But really excited to see what Williams can do and if he can stay out of trouble.

    When was the last time we had an udfa player make an impact on offense? Bess?

    We're due for a contributor.

    Frankly I was hoping for and expecting a bit of a better UDFA crop. With guys like Mitch Hyatt and Beau Benzschawel available, we ought to have found an OL. How come they didn't mention that Needham kid at CB?

    The 2008 UDFA class was underrated. Didn't we get Bess and Carpenter that year?

    I like Butler, but it could come down to roster numbers. With Miami likely to keep a fullback on the roster will they carry only 5 receivers? Are Parker, Williams, Stills, Wilson and Grant close to being locks? From all the hype Williams is getting it's unlikely the Dolphins could risk putting him on the practice squad. So it's 53 man roster or goodbye in his case. Sounds like he's good a great chance of making the final roster if he stays out of trouble.

    As for Butler his best route to the roster would be if the team keeps 6 wrs or if Williams and Butler both look so good and the Dolphins seek to trade Parker for a mid-round (4th or 5th) draft pick.

    I think this was just a look at the offensive udfa.

    I think both UDFA receivers have a chance to contribute. Also think Shaq Calhoun will make the roster and has an outside chance to start.
