Miami Dolphins Nuggets: Busy week underway as Dolphins work out some of draft's top talent

We may be in the middle of the offseason - and in the middle of a lockout - but that doesn't mean the Miami Dolphins aren't busy. A number of the players are kicking their own workouts into high gear while the front office and coaching staff hold private workouts and meetings with some of the elite talent available in next month's draft.

Yes, things are surprisingly busy down in South Florida.

Dolphins making the rounds, meeting with a number of potential draft picks
Yesterday I posted our community draft board poll for the running back position (and there's still time to cast your ballot, by the way). It seems I lucked out in regards to the timing of that post. Why? According to Pro Football Talk, running back Mark Ingram worked out for the Dolphins up in Alabama on Monday. That source also tells PFT that the Dolphins were "very impressed" with the draft's top back, who reportedly looked "very fit and explosive."

Of course, we have to take that info with a grain of salt this time of the year - particularly because there's a good chance PFT's "source" may be Ingram's agent.

The workout with Ingram, by the way, wasn't even the beginning of a very busy week for this front office. The Dolphins met with Cam Newton and his center, Auburn's Ryan Pugh, on Sunday. And the fun is just beginning. ESPN is reporting that the Dolphins will work out Ryan Mallett today in Arkansas. They'll also meet with tight end D.J. Williams while in Arkansas.

This will be followed by a visit with Nevada's Colin Kaepernick and tight end Virgil Green on Wednesday.

ESPN adds that the Dolphins plan to host Mallett on a two day visit in Miami on April 14-15.

Does all this mean anything? Considering the smokescreens and misinformation put out by teams and agents this time of the year, probably not. But then again, maybe that's what the Dolphins want everyone to think.
