DAVIE — Albert Wilson is a bit soft-spoken. But when it comes to speed, he lacks no confidence.
He is fast. In fact, he believes he is the fastest. The fastest Dolphin.
“Definitely,” Wilson said Wednesday.
According to Daily Dolphin research conducted earlier this month, the Dolphins who tested with the best pre-draft 40-yard dash times are: Jakeem Grant (4.38 seconds), Kenny Stills (4.38 seconds), Albert Wilson (4.43 seconds) and Kenyan Drake (4.45 seconds).
So the Daily Dolphin asked Wilson if he would be willing to participate in a 40-yard dash against the two other receivers.
“Oh yes, definitely,” Wilson said.

But would he be willing to do it on the practice field, in front of reporters?
“If it sets up that way, definitely,” Wilson said.
But what would happen?
“I’ll win,” Wilson said.
In the first organized team activity open to the media, Wilson caught a long pass from Brock Osweiler. Make no mistake, he is a burner. And make no mistake, the Dolphins’ offense is fleeter overall.
“When you have the kind of athletic ability he does, the speed he does, the playmaking ability, you just try to find ways to get the ball in his hands and let him do his thing,” Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Wednesday.
Wilson said he’s already lined up in at least three positions in the Miami offense. His versatility and speed should help offset the loss of Jarvis Landry.
“I really like working on the inside,” Wilson said. “I feel like I’ve got that down pat; but, I work good on the outside also, so it really doesn’t matter.”
