The arrival of Brandon Marshall in Miami left one starting spot open for the team's collection of complementary receivers to battle for, and it appears that Greg Camarillo, who started all 16 games last season, is facing a serious challenge from second-year veteran Brian Hartline. Some observers have already predicted that Hartline will get the nod ahead of Camarillo. In Hartline's favor is his ability to pick up yards after the catch, which isn't a strong suit of Camarillo's game. Both are fairly reliable pass catchers. Hartline has greater upside, though, and led the team in yards per catch (16.3) and receiving touchdowns (three) as a rookie. WR Davone Bess will likely continue to operate in the slot, although the Dolphins will give him a chance to claim the starting job. Unless he holds off Hartline to keep his old job, Camarillo will likely rotate in, giving one of the starters a chance to rest.
