This Miami Dolphins regime has a history of finding undrafted rookie receivers like Miles Austin and Davone Bess
and turning them into household names.
Roberto Wallace is looking to take his game to the next level.
Many inside the Dolphins organization feel like Roberto Wallaceís
blend of size and speed will make him the next former unknown to establish a decent NFL career.
Wallace, who came on the Kup & Kelly show on Saturday to talk about his offseason goals and training (LISTEN HERE),
came out of nowhere last season. He made the 53-man roster as an undrafted rookie, beating out 2009 third-round pick Patrick Turner for his spot. His special team contributions had Wallace on the game day roster for most of the season.
But right when this San Diego State produce was beginning to make strides, getting included in the game plans, having plays called for him, Wallace suffered a knee injury that began to limit his forward progress.
Wallace said his knee is fine now, and his goal is to pick up where he left off, learning to use his 6-foot-4, 225 pounds frame and sub 4.5 speed to continually threaten opposing secondaries.
Wallace, who contributed six passes for 62 yards last season, isnít training with the Davie contingent of Dolphins players working out on their own at Nova Southeastern. Heís actually been grinding with Bess and the personal trainer Bess relocated from Hawaii to specifically tailor an offseason program for the receivers.
