You'll remember that by this time last year, the Dolphins had signed an undrafted free agent by the name of Davone Bess - a receiver out of Hawaii. And all he did was have the 2nd best rookie season ever for an undrafted free agent receiver.
Well the Dolphins, like many NFL teams, are already back at it - signing numerous undrafted players. Jeff Ireland said on Sunday he expects to add 8 to 10 players as undrafted free agents.
Here are the ones I've come across so far:
TE Jared Bronson, Central Washington
A pass-catching TE who is athletic and can separate from defenders down the field.
OL Mark Lewis, Oregon
Was told by coaches he'd be a center/guard for the Dolphins.
DE/OLB Orion Martin, Virginia Tech
A high motor player who might not have the speed needed to successfully convert to OLB (ran a 4.89 40 at Combine).

DE Ryan Baker, Purdue
Projects as a defensive end in Miami's 3-4.

WR Chris Williams, New Mexico State
Led team with 86 catches for 1,271 and 9 touchdowns in 2008 and was 4th in the nation in receiving yards per game.
WR Brennan Marion, Tulsa
Speedy big-play receiver who had 43 catches for 1,112 yards (25.9 ypc) in 2008. He was a JUCO transfer and in his first year at Tulsa, 2007, he averaged 31.9 yards per catch - leading the nation.
RB Anthony Kimble, Stanford
A back who doesn't have great burst or speed, but is powerful, can block, and has good hands.
