90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Chris McCain

New, comments

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at linebacker Chris McCain.

We 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.

CHRIS MCCAIN

2014 Review:

2014 was McCain's first year with the Dolphins. He was an undrafted free agent.

McCain appeared in 10 games and saw mostly special teams play. He recorded 5 tackles, 1 sack, and 1 blocked punt.

Why he might progress:

McCain flashed some potential last season. He should see a lot more playing time whether he is starting or playing as a backup.

He has good size and is plenty athletic. He can drop into coverage or rush the passer. He just needs playing time and could turn into a star player for the Dolphins. McCain was a hidden gem, props to general manager Dennis Hickey.

Why he might regress:

McCain is still very raw. There will be some growing pains. Will need to wait a couple of years for him to fully develop.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

McCain will be on the roster when the 2015 season begins. He should be one of the starting linebackers if he plays solid in the preseason.
