Miami cut its roster down to 53 men, and then chose to release QB David Garrard. The Fins lost all four preseason games, which really isn’t any indication for the rest of the season. However, the Dolphins depth, or lack there of, is something to take into consideration since the 2012 season begins this Sunday against the Houston Texans.
Quarterback: Ryan Tannehill, Matt Moore, and Pat Devlin.
Tannehill was named the starter over veteran Matt Moore, which was the beginning of multiple changes that sparked a “rebuild” to the team for the 2013 season. Devlin probably won’t get a shot in the regular season.
Running Backs: Reggie Bush, Daniel Thomas, Lamar Miller, and Marcus Thigpen.
This is definitely Miami’s deepest unit. Bush had over 1,000 yards last season. Thomas brings some physicality.
Receivers: Davone Bess, Brain Hartline, Marlon Moore, Anthony Armstrong, and Rishard Matthews.
Hartline is back from a calf injury and acquiring Armstrong adds to the skill of this unit, but someone or something will have to be done before the offense sinks.
Tight End: Anthony Fasano, Charles Clay, Michael Egnew, and Jeron Mustrud.
Fasano and Clay are the stars of this unit. Clay had some nice catches and TDs this preseason and we all know how hard Fasano works.
Offensive Tackles: Jake Long, Jonathan Martin, and Will Yeatman.
Jake Long still needs to recover from the MCL sprain that happened a couple weeks ago. Yeatman was a good keep, because the potential is there.
Offensive Guard: Richie Incognito, Artis Hicks, John Jerry, and Nate Garner.
Jerry has made some changes in the past couple of weeks, but fundamentals are still an issue. Hicks is recovering from an injury to his neck. Garner can play.
Centers: Mike Pouncey
