Dolphins Saturday Rookie Minicamp Reports

There were two practice sessions today for the rookies down in Davie.  Below are some links to the various practice reports as they roll in - with some of the highlights of today's sessions.

-Pat White looked much better today than yesterday.
-Vontae Davis was seen "clutching" his back a few times during the afternoon.
-The afternoon's highlight was a 40-yard pass from White to Patrick Turner, who caught it despite having Sean Smith "draped all over him."
-But Smith got the better of Turner during the morning session.
-315 pound NT Louis Ellis stood out, showing strength and an ability to penetrate - though it's hard to rate the line play since these practices are non-contact.
-Safety Chris Clemons is "clearly one of the fastest players on the field" - getting downfield first during punt coverage work.

-Pat White's passes were "crisp" and "on target."
-After a rough opening day on Friday, Sean Smith had a good day - slipping underneath Brian Hartline for an interception on one play and breaking up a few other passes.

-Pat White was not intercepted at all during the afternoon session.
-Brian Hartline "made a nifty one-handed catch" during position drills and then during 11-on-11s, Brian caught a perfectly thrown ball over his shoulder down the right sideline behind Vontae Davis.
-Patrick Turner had a solid day - showing the ability to be a target down the seam as well as being reliable on short routes and in the red zone.

-Vontae Davis "didn't look great all day."
-Vontae "appeared to have hurt his lower back" and was rubbing it after one play - but continued practicing and didn't show any other signs of tending to his back for the rest of the day.
-Pat White completed a 45-yard completion to Anthony Armstrong "despite good coverage again by Smith."
-Jy Bond - the Australian punter - isn't looking very good at all.
