Possible UDFA having approved to signed

Looks like the Dolphins have located their tailback burner. 

Nic Grigsby

03/22/11 - Nfl Draft Scout RIser: Nic Grigsby, RB, Arizona: The Wildcats` 5-11, 199-pound back put on a show at his workout, running sub 4.4 40s, posting an outstanding 43 1/2-inch vertical, and looking very quick with his 4.16 short shuttle and 6.65 three-cone results. That performance could earn him a draft spot if coaches believe they can teach him to hold the ball high and tight. - Chad Reuter,

03/14/11 - Grigsby was a blur during Saturday`s pro day in front of scouts from about 20 NFL teams at the Jimenez Practice Facility. The Wildcat ran the 40-yard dash in 4.34 and 4.4 seconds, tops of any player scouted. He was a beast in the bench press, putting up 225 pounds 21 times, and measured 11 feet 1 inch in the broad jump. Impressive numbers, to be sure, but Grigsby`s standing vertical leap defied explanation. He jumped 43.5 inches, best among all UA players by a full 6 inches. Had Grigsby participated in last month`s NFL Combine - he was initially invited, then told not to come - his leap would have been best among all running backs by a full inch. 

"Finished eight in the Pac-10 in rushing (567) in 2009 despite missing three full games and not being fully healthy (shoulder) in a total of six contests... Averaged 7.2 yards per carry as junior... Had 94-yard run against NAU, the school`s longest non-scoring run in history and the second-longest run in the UA records book

this is the homerun hitter we we looking for and I believe he has more upside in the league than Devine who I think won`t be able to run between tackles at this height and size 

As my first post ever here, I'd like to congratulate and thank the guys here for their persistence and work at bringin us weekly updates despite the difficult labor situation. Truly remarkable. 

Enjoy the season fellow Miami Dolphins fan, I am unusually optimistic for this one !
