The Dolphins’ roster has been marred with minor injuries at every position, testing the depth of the team throughout its first two campaigns. The Dolphins’ record at this juncture isn’t important, but the film produced by players is critical to the coaches and front office.
General manager Dennis Hickey and head coach Joe Philbin's emphasis on competition led to many new faces who were acquired this past offseason, and that has created important battles at key positions.
Without a doubt, this Dolphins roster is deeper with talent than previous seasons. Now, Miami must look at players on the bubble and figure out which will help the team this season.
In the following slides, we look at eight players on the bubble and examine whether or not they’ll be on the final 53-man roster. Don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
