Miami Dolphins All Time Depth Chart - Guard #4

The Phinsider Community Miami Dolphins All Time Depth Chart closes out the guard positions today with the vote for the fourth and final slot for the position. Earlier today, we continued the process of building the depth chart with the vote for the third tackle position, and tomorrow we will open the voting for the starting center position, so the depth chart is full wrapped up in the offensive line right now.

But, before we move on to the poll, we need to fill the third guard position. Joining Hall of Famer Larry Little, and Miami Ring of Honor member Bob Kuechenberg, both from the 1970s teams, comes a 1990s era player, Keith Sims. Sims was picked by the Dolphins in the 1990 Draft's second round. He would serve as a starter for the team from his selection until the 1997 season, being named to the 1993, 1994, and 1995 Pro Bowls. He would leave Miami after 1997, spending three seasons with the Washington Redskins before retiring.
