The Miami Dolphins recently worked out Maine wide receiver Demarr Aultman and Brown long snapper Courtland Clavette. This news comes courtesy of Simon Clancy, Deputy Editor of BBC Radio 5 Live Sport.
Aultmann, who is 5 feet, 11 inches, is 195 pounds and at his pro day, he had a 41 inch vertical and ran just under 4.40 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He is not expected to be drafted and is looking at a practice squad in the NFL in his first year. However, he could change that if he excels on special teams in training camp. That's because Aultmann was a superb kickoff returner in college and will look to contribute in that phase of the game. In 2013, Aultman returned 25 kickoffs for 625 yards and a touchdown. The senior returner ranked third in the CAA in kickoff return yards per game and averaged 25.0 yards per return.
Clavette is interesting because the Dolphins already have John Denney under contract. Denney hasn't missed a game in his NFL career, dating back to 1995. However, it makes sense when you also know that Clavette is also a linebacker and it's possible Miami is looking at the 6 foot, 3 inches engineering major as someone who can play a valuable role on special teams and other phases of the game. Like Aultmann, Clavette isn't expected to be selected in the NFL Draft.
