There is no doubt that Ryan Tannehill will be receiving snaps from Mike Pouncey in 2013, that much is for certain. After the recent signing of Tyson Clabo, it appears that both he and Jonathan Martin will be lining up alongside Pouncey as well.
With those three spots relatively set in stone, the battle for the two guard positions is in full effect.
Third-round pick Dallas Thomas is a versatile lineman who can certainly compete, but I find it unlikely that he'll earn a starting gig as a rookie.
Lance Louis has the quickness and ability to win himself a starting job this preseason, but that's still contingent upon a full recovery from his surgically repaired ACL.
Nate Garner seems destined to retain his role as the all-purpose back-up, while John Jerry's weight issues still warrant concern.
Richie Incognito made his way to the Pro Bowl last season, but he could free up over $4 million in cap space if the Dolphins decide to cut him.
Jeff Ireland has done a great job of bringing in an influx of youthful talent, but it wouldn't hurt his cause to bring in the best free agent guard on the market for a year or two.
Currently, that player is former New York Jet, Brandon Moore.
Pro Football Focus ranked him as the top free agent guard this offseason, and at the age of 33, he may just be available for a bargain.
