Saban picks familiar face

Nick Saban admitted at the end of the first day of the draft that he really would have wanted to pick Corey Webster, who was a cornerback for him at LSU. Well, he wound up getting the next-best thing in the fourth round with Webster's cornerback partner at LSU, Travis Daniels.

Daniels, who lives only a few minutes from the Dolphins' training facility and attended South Broward High in Florida, isn't quite the prospect that Webster is, but he has some ability nonetheless.

Daniels is a 6-0, 195-pound corner who also has some experience playing safety, which could be where he winds up with the Dolphins.

Daniels finished the 2004 season with 48 tackles but no interceptions after picking off two passes as a junior.

Daniels improved his stock at his second workout at LSU when he reduced his 40-yard time from the 4.5 range to around 4.45.
