Dolphins release 1st Depth Chart
While it’s still early and a lot can change, fans get their first glimpse of what the Dolphins would look like if they fielded the team today.
- Legedu Naanee a starting WR. I wouldn’t have guessed that a month ago.
- Roberto Wallace 4th behind Chad Johnson on one side – meaning he’s 8th or 9th at the position behind Marlon Moore and Jeff Fuller, possibly Rishard Matthews also (who has the advantage of being drafted by this regime).
- Lydon Murtha back-up LT, meaning Jonathan Martin has locked up the starting position at RT; and fellow rookie Andrew McDonald the back up RT.
- RG John Jerry 3rd and looking like a long shot to make the final 53 man roster.
- Undrafted rookie FA Derrick Shelby @ 2nd RDE. The undersized 6’3″ 270 lb DE from Utah isn’t particularly fast (4.85 to 5.0 in the 40 yard dash) or big, didn’t produce a lot sacks in college and went undrafted because he was inconsistent.
- CB Vontae Davis 2nd behind Richard Marshall. Based on reports Davis hasn’t improved his practice efforts.
- Marcus Thigpen, 5th on theRBchartbut1st at KR and 2nd at PR looks like a lock to make the roster.
