As the Dolphins prepare for the 2004 NFL draft, we continue to take a look back at the past season and examine every player's performance. Today we look at fullback Rob Konrad.

Coming into the 2003 season:

After re-signing with the Dolphins as an unrestricted free agent, Konrad was confident this was the season finally were going to make good on their promise to get him the ball more often.

His performance in 2003:

Sorry, Rob. It was the same old same old for Konrad, who continued to look like one of the most under-utilized offensive weapons in the NFL. And it's not like the Dolphins couldn't have used more offense. But Konrad wound up carrying the ball only four times and he caught only 16 passes in 14 games. Konrad did a solid job blocking for Ricky Williams and he made positive plays whenever he caught the ball, averaging a very impressive 10.4 yards a catch.

His future with the team:

Guess what? Coach Dave Wannstedt once again said this offseason Konrad would become more involved in the offense. Shocking! Maybe this is the year it finally happens. In any event, it should happen because Konrad is a tough matchup for linebacker when he comes out of the backfield. At the very least, Konrad once again gives the Dolphins that option should they choose to finally make use of it.

Grade for 2003: B.
