90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Cedric Thompson

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at safety Cedric Thompson.

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

e bring back our annual look at the Miami Dolphins' roster heading into training camp, a series we call 90-in-90. Over the next 90 days (or a few more as roster changes happen), we will take a look at each individual player on the roster, review what they did in 2014 either in the NFL or in college, then take a look at how they might progress or regress this season, and the chances that player will make the roster.


2014 Review:

Thompson recorded 83 tackles, 2 interceptions, and 2 forced fumbles.

Why he might progress:

If Thompson makes the roster, I would consider that a good sign. He would have to beat out a few guys however.

Why he might regress:

There is a lot of competition at the safety position. The starters are set in stone with Reshad Jones and Louis Delmas.

As I stated, lots of competition for the backup safety positions. I just don't see Thompson beating out guys like Michael Thomas and Walt Aikens.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

In my opinion, he ends up on the practice squads. If he makes the team, he will see most of his playing time from special teams.
