    Miami Dolphins’ defensive depth chart (precamp)

    DEFENSE
    Defensive Line (11, with one on injured reserve)

    LE – Kendall Langford, Ryan Baker, Ikaika Alama-Francis

    NT – Randy Starks, Paul Soliai, Travis Ivey (undrafted rookie), Montavious Stanley

    RE – Jared Odrick (first-round pick – UNSIGNED), Tony McDaniel, Marques Douglas, Lionel Dotson, Phillip Merling (IR – quadriceps injury)

    Langford and Starks are the only locks as starters. Everything else is open, and will come down to production. The end who plays Pro Bowl left tackle Jake Long the best will wind up starting on the right side. Where the ends line – left or right – up will be fluid, but the guys who generally end up on the right side are the better pass rushers. Baker will likely be cross-trained as a end, and nose tackle. The Dolphins will likely keep at least eight defensive linemen on the 53-man roster.

    Linebackers (12)

    WLB – Cameron Wake, Charlie Anderson, Chris McCoy (seventh-round pick)

    MIKE ILB – Karlos Dansby, A.J. Edds (fourth-round pick), J.D. Folsom

    MOE ILB – Channing Crowder, Tim Dobbins, Austin Spitler (seventh-round pick)

    SLB – Koa Misi (second-round pick – UNSIGNED), Quentin Moses, Erik Walden

    I’ve made Wake the starter over Anderson because he’s a superior pass rusher, and this unit needs a serious threat to quarterbacks. But if Wake doesn’t improve his run support he’ll get pigeonholed into the pass rushing specialist role he had last season. Most of the outside linebackers, expect Misi, will go back and forth from weakside to strong side. Anderson’s the most versatile, so he’ll probably serve as the primary backup on both sides if he doesn’t win a starting job, which is still possible.

    Secondary (14)

    CB – Vontae Davis, Will Allen (Injured), Evan Oglesby, Nolan Carroll (fifth-round pick), A.J. Wallace (undrafted rookie)

    CB – Sean Smith, Jason Allen, Nate Ness (converted practice squad safety), Ross Weaver (undrafted rookie)

    FS – Chris Clemons, Reshad Jones (fifth-round pick)

    SS - Yeremiah Bell, Tyrone Culver, Jonathon Amaya (undrafted rookie)

    Davis and Smith should only be pushed by Will Allen for their starting spot, and that will only happen IF Will Allen’s fully recovered from his ACL injury. But it’s highly likely the unit’s veteran will end up the nickel cornerback. Five cornerbacks and four safeties will likely be kept on the 53-man roster, which means Jason Allen, Oglesby, Carroll, Wallace, Ness and Weaver are competing for the two spots behind the top three. Their special teams contribution will be a significant factor. Amaya’s a prime candidate to land on the practice squad if he continues impressing, and maybe he has the potential to do more.

    SPECIAL TEAMS (3)

    P – Brandon Fields

    LS – John Denney

    K – Dan Carpenter

    Returners – Davone Bess, Patrick Cobbs, Brian Hartline, Ryan Grice-Mullen, Taurus Johnson, Kory Sheets, Tristan Davis and Marlon Moore.

    Why do they have Culver listed as a strong safety.

    He can play both, and he is perhaps better at strong safety than he is at free safety.

    it's more like everyone competing for FS, and bell locked into SS, jones probably groomed for either position in the future, culver the backup for whoever goes down. amaya... like he said probably gets stashed and PS and then stolen

    I really like Charlie coming of the bench, sometime you need good role players it is not always about the stars. With that said your starters at outside LB will Wake & Misi.

    Ok, I thought he was more of a free safety than a strong safety.

    I agree you do need good role players. Problem is, Charlie Anderson just isn't that good.
