The Miami Dolphins have officially seen more live football action in 2013 than all but one other NFL team. That means they are open to more scrutiny than 30 other teams. You could say that's good or bad for a team that's trying to take a big step this year, but it's the nature of the game regardless.
Speaking of scrutiny, the Dolphins have a lot to look out for. The roster is full of new additions, many of them unproven at this level.
After roughly three weeks of training camp, we've seen a good deal of what Miami's roster has to offer.
But we haven't seen anywhere near the full range of abilities this team has yet. Moreover, we've only seen the Dolphins in one live football game. And with that one game being the first preseason contest, it's hardly a reliable barometer by which to judge the team.
That said, there's no denying that some players have found their rhythm sooner than others. Whether it's a matter of conditioning, preparation or inexperience is to be determined. Nevertheless, there are those players who have been bright spots of the team's camp.
We've narrowed that list down to a half-dozen. Here are the six Miami Dolphins who are off to the best starts in camp.
