The Dolphins were a huge hit at their first training camp practice, at least with the fans.

Over 3,000 Dolphin fanatics comprised the overflow, sell out crod. It will be interesting to find out if there were more people in Davie ,Florida today than there were at Jimmy Johnson’s first practice.

First off, no injuries to report, which is the most important thing each and every day.

Matt Roth was under the weather and Donald Thomas was held out of contact drills as he recovers from a pectoral injury.

Chad Pennington looks bigger, and his arm seems stronger.

Paul Soali looks thinner, he couldn’t get much bigger.

Brandon London also lost about 12 pounds and he feels that, that will make a huge difference. It helped him make the play of the day according to many. He out leaped Nate Jones for a 33-yard reception thrown by Chad Henne.

Will the last wide receiver spot come down to a battle between Brandon London and Anthony Armstrong.?Dolphin’s coaches have already said wide receiver is going to be the hardest decision making position process.

Armstrong has the speed, and London has the size. London is also a key specia; teams player. However Patrick Turner has the size too and that could neutralize London.

Turner also made one of the plays of the days. The tall, lanky wide receiver showed his versatility in utilizing a cat quick shake and break move on a disgusted Eric Green.

Green was the starter opposite Will Allen all practice long. Watching Vontae Davis and Sean Smith trying to move up the depth chart is going to be fascinating.

The Dolphins only ran one Wildcat play all day long.

Cameron Wake continues to be invisible in pass rushing situations. The former Cnadian League linebacker, came in with a cult hero like status, but has yet to make a dent.

Jason Taylor admits he is lost in the 3-4 defense.

Greg Camarillo ran and caught with the first team all day.

Pat White’s release is quicker than it was in the spring
