A lot has been made about the Miami Dolphins' backfield over the past couple of months. A number of writers have given us their thoughts on who will claim the Dolphins' top running back spot. Heck, I've even said as much recently.
So why all the constant talk about a seemingly overblown topic?
Frankly, because it's the Dolphins' most interesting position battle. Hands down. The only other position that comes close is the cornerback race, but in reality that's just a contest to see who can fill in behind Brent Grimes.
Meanwhile, the Dolphins have at least three players vying for playing time at running back, and two of those guys are fighting for the starting job. It's been a heated race so far between the talented group of youngsters, and it's only going to get more exciting as we approach training camp.
With that in mind, let's break down the Dolphins running back situation one more time and see who's leading the pack. And remember, the tale of the tape never lies.
