Dolphins Depth Chart - Post Rookie Minicamp

New, comments

The Miami Dolphins held their rookie minicamp over the weekend, leading to a couple of players being waived, as well as one try out player being added. The team also signed veteran offensive tackle Tyson Clabo. Here's a look at how the depth chart stacks up with all the changes.

Joel Auerbach

The 2013 Miami Dolphins depth chart is a constantly changing entity, as evidenced by this weekend's rookie minicamp. The Dolphins announced the signing of 19 undrafted free agents at the start of the camp, and had cut two by the end of it. They also signed linebacker David Hinds after he came to the camp for a try out.

The Dolphins also added Tyson Clabo this week, giving them a starting right tackle.

Here is the current projection of the depth chart:

Miami Dolphins
Current Contracts: 81
Unsigned Draft Picks: 9
Top 51 Salary Cap Space: $6,967,001 (with $9,390,000 freeing up on June 1)
Rookie Salary Pool: $7,839,986 (minimum $5,200,912)

With the addition of Clabo yesterday, the Dolphins have fairly well answered all of their needs for the 2013 season. Depth on the offensive line is really the only question mark, specifically at left tackle, but there's nothing in the way of the Dolphins have a Week 1 lineup capable of being a playoff contender this year.


Jerry is still my starting right guard at this point, with Loius' injury being the deciding factor. Thomas spent the few limited snaps he had during the rookie minicamp (due to his shoulder surgery rehab) working as a left tackle, so I have him slotted behind Martin now. Clabo comes in as the starting right tackle. I've moved Marcus Thigpen to the slot receiver position, because I believe that is where he will work the most on the offense. It also opens up the running back position for Gillislee and Gray. Wide receivers are backed up right now, with Wallace, Hartline, Gibson, and Thigpen taking the top four positions.

As I said in the last post, the defense is fairly well set. Right now, it's all about depth.


No real changes from last posting. Simply added the undrafted free agents to the chart.

Brandon Fields


Dan Carpenter

Caleb Sturgis (R)

Long Snapper

John Denney

Patrick Scales


No needs remain here.


Sturgis came out hitting 50-yard field goals in rookie minicamp over the weekend. He's not playing, and the competition between him and Dan Carpenter is real.
