2015 Depth Charts: Miami Dolphins
• Ryan Tannehill can be a Very Good quarterback, but he needs to improve on his consistency in order to get there. He had some really good games in 2014, but was so up and down that it’s tough to have him any higher than what we have right now.
• How good is Brian Hartline at this point? He had an impressive season in 2013, but there was a major drop off in 2014, finishing the season with just 477 receiving yards. Can he be anything more than a solid receiver again? Time will tell.
• Brent Grimes wasn’t as good as we’ve come to expect in 2014, but based on his career we felt it would be harsh to drop him below Very Good. He definitely needs to improve in 2015, but given what he’s done throughout his career at this point, we expect him to do so.
• At safety, Reshad Jones has really impressed in two of the last three seasons, making it tough for us to have him as anything other than Very Good. This past season he graded positively in coverage, against the run and as a pass rusher.
Wide Receiver: Mike Wallace is a good deep threat, but this team still lacks a No. 1 receiver. Their current cap situation makes going after any of the top receivers, provided they hit the market, unlikely, so this is a position that they may need to look to the draft to address.
Guard: Both guards under performed in 2014 and this is now a definite position of need heading into 2015. Even adding a solid starter which didn’t break the bank would make a lot of sense.
Defensive Back: With Grimes and Jones they have two Very Good starters in this group, but not a lot outside of that. The only other player we have seen enough of is Cortland Finnegan, who is on the downside of his career.
