Upon their 1966 inception, the Miami Dolphins and their quirky tropical color scheme quickly became a laughingstock around the NFL. After four dismal seasons at the bottom of the league's totem pole, Don Shula arrived and immediately transformed the team from punching bag to contender.
Since then, the Dolphins have churned out some of the greatest players in the history of the NFL, thanks in large part to Don Shula and Jimmy Johnson's legendary scouting eyes.
From the team's 1970 turnaround to their current day roster, hundreds of players have contributed to the Dolphins' rich history. Narrowing down Miami's list of players was no easy task, but these 100 stood out above the rest.
