The position of tight end has long been one of the most neglected needs for the Miami Dolphins, and in recent seasons, they've worked hard during the offseason to fix it.
A tight end can be a quarterback's safety net and best friend, working as the final check down that can get the yards needed for a first down or more or creating matchup nightmares by being the primary target on any given play, while on other plays acting as an additional blocker both in the run game and in pass protection.
The Dolphins have lacked this aspect of their offense ever since the departure of Randy McMichael (sorry Anthony Fasano fans, he's a good receiver but wasn't great as a blocker) but seemed to get it solved with the emergence of Charles Clay.
Behind Clay, the Dolphins have a tight end that they have drafted in each draft since 2012, yet none of them have been able to unseat Clay as the starter. Here's a breakdown of Clay and the rest of Miami's tight ends, what they could bring to the team and where they are on the depth chart.
