    Ladies and Gentleman, Boys and Girls, attached to this thread, you can download a Depth Chart in PDF format for the 2012 Miami Dolphins. This is a way we can follow our team being built.

    As players are added/released/numbers changed, etc. this Depth Chart will be updated to reflect those changes. Of course this is NOT an official depth chart for the 2012 season. The only official depth chart will be released by head coach Joe Philbin during training camp. This is a nice way to follow our team and where we stand position wise during free agency and the draft, that just a plain roster list can not. (Current Depth Chart reflects a 3-4 defense)

    Since changes to the depth chart can change on a daily basis and from practice to practice, it is possible the depth chart could be updated more than once during the course of any given day. Since that is the case, in addition to giving the date that it was updated, I will also include the time in Eastern Standard Time that it was updated.

    Players in BLUE indicate unsigned Restricted Free Agents that the Dolphins have the right to place tenders on. Another team is welcome to try and sign these players, but may be required to give the Dolphins compensation in return. Also, if signed by another team, the Dolphins have the right to match the offer and retain the player.

    Players in GREEN indicate unsigned Exclusive-Rights Free Agents. These players will receive a qualifying offer from the Dolphins. If the offer is made, the player has two choices, A) Accept the offer and play for the Dolphins, or B) Refuse the offer and sit out the season. These players can not talk to any other NFL team. As long as the Dolphins make a qualifying offer, the team will hold their rights for the entire 2012 season.

    Players in RED indicate unsigned 2012 NFL Draft choices made by the Dolphins.

    Don't see one of your favorite players from last year on this list? Most likely it is because those players are unrestricted free agents and free to sign with any team in the league. However, the Dolphins could bring back any of these players by either A) Signing them to a new contract, or B) Giving the player the Franchise or Transition Tag.

    Please feel free to offer your input, discuss the roster and point out any mistakes or updates.

    Please enjoy!

    That receiving core does not scare anyone. Dolphins better load up on receivers in this draft. Even though he was a pain in the butt and dropped a good few passes, I think that Marshall trade is going to hurt them, especially against the Jets. Bess and Hartline cannot get off the line of scrimmage against Revis.

    That offense scares me (and not in a good way!). The defense has only a few holes, but seems to be fairly solid. Problem is, the offense may end up keeping our defense way too busy by never getting them off the field long enough to catch their breath. While I'm hoping to plug some of the holes with the draft, I don't remember us having 15-20 picks in this year's draft. I guess we get better slowly with several drafts (assuming we pick starters and not guys that get cut in 1-2 years).

    The roster is updated with all the latest move and number changes. Currently the roster has 64 members. Between the draft and the undrafted free agent signings in the days after, the Dolphins can add up to 26 players to the roster.

    I am out of town and don't have access to my excel file, so it might be a few weeks until this gets updated to reflect the draft. Sorry.

    One thing that sticks out is the lack of takeaways from our starting 4 defensive backs.

    Their career totals for interceptions is 15 from all 4. That is terrible.

    Its going to be a long year unless that can be corrected and start forcing turnovers.

    I think Smith will have breakout year. His play going higher every year and next season will be a contract year for him...

    I hope so. He had his hands on alot of potential ints over the last 2 years. Gotta start bringing them in if he want to get paid big money.

    The back up MLB is a glaring hole. If Dansby goes down, we will be swiss cheese.

    Besides Misi, that front seven looks stout.

    Wallace is 4th team? Moore 5th team? Damn.

    As of right now, Roberto Wallace should be ahead of Gates who has done basically nothing.

    It is an unofficial depth chart so things will change. However, what has Wallace really done? He has 6 catches in two seasons. Granted Gates only had 2 catches in his rookie season, but at least he had over 800 return yards. Both haven't done really anything, but I would say right now Gates has done more.

    I think Spitler or Kaddu could both fill in there. Otherwise, they would move Burnett inside and play Kaddu on the outside

    The WR, TE, and RB battles interest me much more than the QB battle. Especially the WRs.

    And what's this about Murtha starting? Why would it not be Jonathan Martin? If we resign Long and then draft a guard in the first three rounds next year, this unit could be tops in the NFL no question

    I also think Jovorskie Lane will be our starting FB. He's 5'11", 277. He has at least 25 lbs on most linebackers, and at 5'11'', there's no question he'll get lower. I'm excited about the blocking and short yardage potential for this guy. He runs people over. Clay will see more time at TE and in the slot, or motioning out of the backfield. He is very much an H-back (like Chris Cooley) and not a true FB or TE.

    I don't think Clemons is cut out for the Strong. I think he is a more natural Free, and I think Wilson is a more natural Strong. The safety battle is really the only defensive battle

    I know how you feel. Their style of play would dictate that, but when you look at their size (Wilson 5'11" 185lbs; and Clemons 6'1" 210 lbs) it might explain why they are in their current positions. If you could match Clemons' size with Wilson's style of play, then we would have the ideal strong saftety; and if you matched Wilson's size with Clemons' style of play, that would be more suitable for the FS spot. Based on Wilson's size alone, I don't think he can handle the SS spot on a regular basis, he has the heart and tenacity for it but his body would not stand the constant banging he would have to do in the box. But we have a new D-coord. and I hear alot about how his secondary personnel will be interchangeable, so we'll see how it works out.

    The person whose size and style of play that appears (to me) as a perfect fit for the SS position is Reshad Jones. Move Jones to SS and they should let Clemons and Wilson battle it out for the FS spot.

    Also, I would like to see more from Jonathan Wade (he has been impressive early on), Richard Marshall, and Tyrell Johnson. If these three step up, our secondary will be very deep and more versatile than we ever had in the past.

    The "Unofficial 2012 Dolphins Depth Chart" should also include KR and PR.

    The quarterback order will change before the beginning of the season.
