The Miami Dolphins are an exceedingly young football team.
To put it into perspective, the last time the Fins appeared in the Super Bowl, a majority of the players on the current roster were either still in diapers, or yet to be conceived.
Expectations for the South Florida squad are running rather high, and in order for the team not to disappoint, the more experienced players simply must take an active role in the development of some of the younger guys.
Furthermore, they are going to have to do so while at the same time continuing to pull their share of the load.
Here are the top five Dolphins with more than five years of NFL experience who will, in my view, most impact the team's efforts in 2010.
