Forget Chad Ochocinco: The Media Should Be Hyping These 5 Dolphins

Chad Ochocinco's one season in New England was an unequivocal bust.

In his only season with the Patriots, Ochocinco had only 15 catches for 276 yards and one touchdown.

If the plan was for Ochocinco to learn the offense during the regular season, then break him out for the playoffs, then that was a failure, too. He only recorded one catch for 21 yards during the NFL's second season, and that was in the Super Bowl.

Yet Ochocinco is going to be the star of Hard Knocks, and he's already getting more media attention than any of his teammates. 

While I see how Chad Ochocinco (Johnson) can help the Dolphins, he's not the star attraction that he was in Cincinnati. At 34 years old, he doesn't contain the same burst that he once had.

By default, he's the No. 1 receiver. But that speaks more to the lack of depth and talent in the Dolphins' receiving corps than it does to Chad's abilities at this time.

But he shouldn't be the most hyped Miami Dolphin on the roster. While this team isn't the most talented in the NFL, there are plenty of players more worthy of hype than the former six-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time All-Pro.

Keep an eye on these guys instead going into 2012.
