The Miami Dolphins have released their first official depth chart of the preseason. Let’s break it down!
With the preseason set to kick off on Thursday for the Miami Dolphins, the team has dropped their first official depth chart. Obviously, fans are extremely excited about this as it is just one more step towards our Week 1 kickoff. So, of course, we feel the need to over analyze and meticulously pick this depth chart apart. Because it’s what we do.
The key to this is understanding what it is relevant and what’s not. On the team’s first depth chart veterans will be given the respect they’ve earned, while rookies will be put on notice that they have to earn their spot on the team regardless of how silly it seems. It’s just something coaches do to make a point to the young kids no matter how empty it seems to anybody with common sense.
There are a few things I noticed with this depth chart that I find quite telling and interesting and a few things I’m just completely writing off as useless. We will break down both the offensive and defensive depth chart separately while going position by position. I’m not doing a full breakdown of the special teams unit.
The only think of note is that Jakeem Grant looks to be the front-runner for all returning jobs and Senorise Perry has a real shot to earn a roster spot if he performs well on special teams as a returner and perhaps in coverage.
