Today we continue our series of breakdowns on players that could potentially be selected by the Dolphins in the first round of next month’s NFL Draft. On Monday, it was Alabama running back Mark Ingram, on Friday it’ll be Florida offensive lineman Mike Pouncey, but today, it’s all about speed and Boise State wide receiver Titus Young:
Breaking Down: Titus Young
While most mock drafts have the Fins looking at Ingram, I have long held out hope that they take a particular interest in the guy that is probably my biggest “draft crush,” Titus Young.

This afternoon the Miami Dolphins will open up the 2010 season when they face off with the Buffalo Bills for the 93rd time in the history of this rivalry. The Fins are coming off a 7-9 season, while Buffalo was 6-10 in 2009–the teams split their season series last year, with both teams winning their home games.
One of the Dolphins great strengths the last couple of years has been their running game (4th best in the NFL last season) and the Bills defense has really struggled against the run (30th in the NFL last year), so don’t be surprised if the Fins once again turn to the backfield to get their offense going.
