Every year there is a player who comes out of nowhere to have a solid season. For the Miami Dolphins, tight end Charles Clay surprised media, fans and even the coaching staff with a career year in 2013.
That leads into the latest "Poll Friday" question: Who is Miami's top sleeper candidate for 2014? The Dolphins have several interesting players capable of having a career year.
Will it be running back Lamar Miller? He floundered last season amid high expectations. Miller failed as a full-time starter for the first time in his career and rushed for 709 yards and two touchdowns. Miller didn’t get much blocking up front last season. Could he be due for a 1,000-yard season?
Will it be new safety Louis Delmas? Miami’s free-agent pickup is joining a new secondary after playing last season for the Detroit Lions. Delmas is a big hitter with a history of injuries. Can he stay healthy and have a big year in Miami?
What about second-year cornerbacks Jamar Taylor and Will Davis? The 2013 draft picks suffered through injuries that kept them off the field. Taylor and Davis will both have a chance to compete for a starting job opposite Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes. Will one of Miami’s young corners step up?
