Dolphins | Barnes appears to be ahead of Beasley at fullback

The Miami Herald reports Miami Dolphins FBs Fred Beasley and Darian Barnes are locked in a competition for the team's starting fullback spot, and part of the edge Barnes enjoys might be a result of advice he got from Beasley. Before training camp started, Beasley was considered the better receiver, whereas Barnes was considered the better blocker and special-teams player. Beasley gave Barnes some advice on how to catch the ball better. Head coach Nick Saban told Barnes the Dolphins needed to see improvement in the receiving portion of his game and the coach was impressed with the player's response. Saban noted that Beasley showed improvement in the second preseason game and has done a good job.
