For the past nine seasons, Dolphins cornerback Will Allen has always been in front. He had the pedigree from the beginning, a first-round stud out of Syracuse in 2001 with nothing but the future ahead of him.
Dolphins wide receiver Greg Camarillo followed a different path. He was undrafted, unheralded and at first, unwanted. One heroic catch in 2007 catapulted a career that has turned solid and reliable.
They play opposite positions. They took opposite career paths. They have nothing in common. Except for this: Two of the Dolphins' most-tenured veterans now find themselves in a training camp battle to keep youth from taking over.
``Who cares if I started for nine years?'' Allen says. ``It's always a competition.''
``I've never began a camp as a starter,'' Camarillo says. ``They'll give everybody a fair shake.''
With two different sets of circumstances, Camarillo and Allen are in interesting places in their careers. They aren't too old, and they don't lack production. But if they want their starting jobs back, they must still prove superior to a rising crop of young players.
Wide receiver Brian Hartline is now running with the starters while cornerbacks Sean Smith and Vontae Davis have spent the first four days of camp with the first-team defense.

Love Cam and Will is a nice vet to have, but for the love of god let the young guns play. Both Davis & Hartline are ahead of these two. With that said I still appreciate both Cam and Will
