*Lamar Miller heading into rSo season: A closer look at the Dolphins' picks: Round 4/97 - Lamar Miller, RB, 5-10, 212, Miami...Miller's 4.3 speed should add an electrifying element to Miami's offense in time.

Denzel Perryman heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Chargers' five picks: Round 2/48 -- Denzel Perryman, ILB, 6-1, 200, Miami...Perryman will see action on early downs as he's a run-stopper. He led Miami with 110 tackles last year and loves the physical part of the game. Adds depth, for now, before starters Donald Butler and Manti Te'o. But Butler is coming off a disappointing season and Te'o continues to find his feet as an NFL player. Word is Perryman could push early for playing time. - The Sports Xchange

Seantrel Henderson heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Bills picks: Round 7/237 -- Seantrel Henderson, T, 6-7, 331, Miami...Was touted as a first-round talent, but his stock fell after three positive marijuana tests at Miami and he openly admitted to his drug use at the Scouting Combine.

He often dominated games with 58 knockdown blocks and 10 touchdown blocks. - The Sports Xchange

Brandon Linder heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Jaguars' pick: Round 3/93 - Brandon Linder, RG, 6-6, 311, Miami...Physical, dependable, consistent, it's what the Jaguars like in the Miami lineman whom the Jaguars coached in the Senior Bowl.

*Olivier Vernon heading into Jr season: A closer look at the Dolphins' picks: Round 3/72 - Olivier Vernon, DE, 6-2, 261, Miami...This well-built, quick twitch edge pass rusher reminded the scouts a lot of Cameron Wake, whom the Dolphins discovered in the CFL. He had an average career from a production standout, but the film showed he's a solid player. Ireland specifically liked the way he set the edge on running plays. COULD SURPRISE: Defensive end Olivier Vernon: His production at Miami is underwhelming considering he only contributed 82 career tackles and nine sacks before declaring for the draft after his suspension-shortened junior season. But his athleticism, strength and speed measurables were off the charts, and won Ireland and his scouts over during a workout. The Dolphins envision Vernon immediately filling Jason Taylor's old role as a situational pass rusher in the nickel package. - The Sports Xchange

NFLDraftScout.com uses the best verifiable 40-yard time for each player. There is no single, official 40-yard time for any player, even those who run at the Indianapolis Combine. Those players who participate in the 40 yards at the Combine actually run twice and on each run they are timed by two hand-held stopwatches and one electronic timer (that is actually initiated by hand on the player's first movement). Combine data includes all six of those times for each player, but no single official time. Team scouts and coaches have various approaches for getting the 40 time they use from those six timings. Some use averages. Some throw out slowest and fastest and then average the rest. In deference to each player, NFLDraftScout.com attempts to use the best verifiable time that seems appropriate for each player. That is the 40 time we post.
