Among those invited by the Dolphins to an April 9 predraft workout audition for players with local ties: UM's Jimmy Graham, Jason Fox, Darryl Sharpton, Dedrick Epps, Sam Shields and Javarris James and FAU quarterback Rusty Smith and tight end Jamari Grant. Georgia's Jeff Owens, a likely midrounder, also was invited and is a viable nose tackle option. . . . Dolphins defensive coordinator Mike Nolan attended UF's recent Pro Day, and Miami expressed an interest in defensive end Jermaine Cunningham and inside linebacker Brandon Spikes.

Spikes isn't especially needed after Miami signed Karlos Dansby, but evaluators believe Cunningham (18.5 sacks in 45 games) could play outside linebacker in Miami's 3-4 defense (a big need). Cunningham should go in rounds two or three.
