I've been a fan of Brandon Gibson's potential ever since I met him as he was training for the 2009 draft at Elite Athletics in Los Angeles.
He's just never quite found the right spot. He looked solid at times in St. Louis, but he still seemed to be missing something.
He might have finally found his place in Miami. According to ESPN.com's James Walker, since the Dolphins traded Davone Bess to Cleveland, Gibson has played inside and has really hit his stride in minicamp.
Currently, he's stuck behind Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline on the depth chart, and he might have to contend with tight end Dustin Keller as well. That said, if Gibson can be consistent with his hands (an issue he had at times with the Rams), he could become a trusted target for second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
So he is definitely worth keeping an eye on.
Elsewhere, Walker also reports that all three running backs in Miami have been mediocre at best and just flat-out bad at worst. You would expect Mike Gillislee to struggle a little as a rookie, but Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller have no excuse. Thomas is especially on a short rope, as he was terrible at times in 2012.
The hope is that, minus the pads and against a good run defense with a shaky offensive line, we just did not see these running backs at their best. However, it's enough of a concern to make fantasy owners watch the Miami backfield very carefully.
What did you take away from minicamps this past month? Let us know in the comments below.
