In 2011, the Dolphins drafted Daniel Thomas and in 2013, they drafted Mike Gillislee. In 2014, both of their spots on the roster are in jeopardy. That's because of two undrafted free agents - Damien Williams and Orleans Darkwa, who are pushing both players. According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Williams has been more impressive than Daniel Thomas at times.
“They are both fundamentally sound football players,” Philbin said Thursday of Williams and Darkwa. “I thought in the last drill we had, I think we ran an outside zone to the left and they do a good job of ball security. They are not afraid to step up there in pass protection. I like the group. I think it’s a good, young group.”
Time will tell whether or not the undrafted rookie free agents can find a spot on the 53 man roster, beating out Thomas and Gillislee in the process.
