Miami Dolphins, Def, Dolphins
2014 Outlook: Quality BackupLast updated on Jun-23-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith
The Dolphins' defense struggled on third down and against pass-catching running backs. They should get a lot of sacks, turnovers, and have a much-improved pass defense in 2014. There will be some concern about shoring up their run defense after losing Paul Soliai in free agency; they don't have anyone at this point that has proven they can fill that void. Miami have a lot of players that can flat-out get at QB. Cameron Wake is a stud. Olivier Vernon, Jared Odrick and Randy Starks are all really good pass-rushers in their own right. Reports out of Dolphins camp are that Dion Jordan has been very impressive as well and they plan to get him much more involved. Miami also quietly added Cortland Finnegan and Louis Delmas to their secondary. With stand-outs Reshad Jones, Brent Grimes and a few other talented young DBs mixed in, they should be much improved. The biggest hole seems to be the fact that their linebackers can't cover. If that doesn't improve, they will have a hard time getting off the field on third down.
