Interesting notes from Omar Kelly out in Miami about new Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace. Here is a little tidbit from his article:
I’ve noticed two things about Wallace so far. He drops his share of passes in practice, and he doesn’t always run full speed. For whatever reason he’s rarely in gear five, and the reason I know this is because when he makes a cut its usually effortless. The fact he isn’t at full speed keeps a cornerback from going into gear five, and as a result Brent Grimes, the deflection king, usually makes pretty good breaks on his balls. – Sun Sentinel
It seems that Kelly is not impressed with what Wallace has brought over. He doesn’t go at full speed and he doesn’t measure up to the Brandon Marshall status.
That is not a good start out in Miami. He doesn’t have a good chemistry with Ryan Tannehill and he doesn’t go full speed in practice. It sounds like he is just going through the motions. If I dropped in a few million dollars out to a receiver, I would hope he still goes all out on the practice field.
Let’s see if the reports start to change as training camp continues.
