Depth Chart Bubble Watch: Vol. 3

It's that time of the week again.  It's time to once again take a look at the potential 53-man roster in the same way that people like to try and predict the NCAA Tournament's field of 65.  Last week's edition can be seen here.

Below is the latest edition.  Feel free to discuss and dissect.

1st Team 2nd Team 3rd Team

P Brandon Fields
LS John Denney

PUP: Michael Lehan
Last 5 On: David Kircus, Renaldo Hill, Joey Thomas, Junior Glymph, Edmond Miles
First 5 Off: Jayson Foster, Greg Camarillo, Reagan Mauia, Josh McCown, Rob Ninkovich
Next 5 Off: Rod Wright, Lex Hilliard, Titus Brown, Chris Roberson, Lionel Dotson

Yet again, I've listed Lehan on the PUP list.  Until he practices and gets into a game, that's where I'll continue to lost him.  Also, just to clarify, I have both Parmele and Cobbs making the roster.  I just didn't want to create a new column for a "4th team" when that position was the only one that would need the column.

Next, the most controversial decision that I made to fill the 53-man roster is probably my decision to leave off both Jayson Foster and Greg Camarillo.  But let's face it: Bess and Kircus have both earned a spot on this team.  Kircus, far and away, had the best game of all the receivers against Tampa.  It'll be interesting to see if he plays just as well against the Jaguars on Saturday night.

Of course, Foster or Camarillo could be kept as a 6th receiver if the Dolphins decide to not keep one of the back-up linebackers.  For example, if the staff feels confident that Matt Roth could play OLB, then Junior Glymph might not be needed.  But who would that 6th receiver be?  Foster was quite unimpressive in the first preseason game.  But the same can be said for Camarillo.  I think it's safe to say that from this point forward, the battle between Kircus, Camarillo, and Foster for a roster spot is going to be interesting.

So do you agree with the above depth chart?  Disagree?  Let's hear it below...
