Bess’ Success No Shock to the Fins


From: Pro Football Weekly

To the casual observer, WR Davone Bess’ emergence as a critical component of the offense came out of nowhere. An undrafted rookie out of Hawaii, Bess has come on like gangbusters the past three weeks, catching 20 passes for 245 yards with Greg Camarillo lost for the season to a torn ACL.

Those close to the team, however, view Bess’ rise to prominence as the natural evolution of a player who showed tremendous potential from his first days in the offseason program, when his polish had him looking like the best receiver the Dolphins had. The idea that Bess has surpassed all others in the WR corps, including the more-publicized Ted Ginn Jr., is a view that we hear is accepted as truth to those inside the organization.

Certainly, his new-found role as the No. 1 wideout also has been aided by Ginn’s slow development. Ginn’s lack of toughness has been particularly disappointing.
