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.


2014 Review:

2014 was Mitchell's first year with the Dolphins.

He appeared in 16 games, starting in 4 of them. He recorded 33 tackles, 2 sacks, and 1 pass defensed.

Why he might progress:

Playing next to Ndamukong Suh is going to make things a lot easier for Mitchell.

There is a lot of depth on the defensive line, it will help keep Mitchell fresh.

Why he might regress:

As stated above, there is so much depth on the defensive line.

Mitchell could end up losing playing time, if he starts, if Jordan Phillips starts to play like a starter.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

Mitchell should be the starter next to Suh when the 2015 season begins.
