Looking for that Great Catch

It's no great secret the Dolphins could get better at wide receiver, so it only figured they would check out a lot of different prospects at the position this spring. Picking 25th in the first round, the Fins pretty much can forget about getting a shot at either Michael Crabtree or Jeremy Maclin unless they trade up in the first round, which isn't likely, so they're focusing on other prospects.

The Dolphins have done their due diligence with two other projected first-round picks, Percy Harvin from Florida and Hakeem Nicks from North Carolina, according to the Palm Beach Post.

But they're also scheduled to work out Maryland's Darrius Heyward-Bey, according to Scout.com's Ed Thompson, and already also have worked out Ohio State's Brian Robiskie, this according to Doug Farrar of Scout.com.

Of those four players, Robiskie the only one not considered a likely first-round pick, although he has helped his stock this spring by running very fast than some observers had expected.

He's someone the Dolphins seriously would consider with their first of two second-round picks, the 44th overall.

Of the other wide receiver prospects, Harvin is the most explosive, Heyward-Bey may have the most upside, while Nicks might be the most ready to make a big impact.

Harvin is a tremendous athlete who can be used in a variety of ways, but the Dolphins already have a player like that in Ted Ginn Jr.

Nicks and Heyward-Bey both possess great size, but while Nicks runs better routes right now and probably has better hands, Heyward-Bey clearly is the better athlete of the two and also has more speed.
