90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Matt Hazel

New, comments

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at wide receiver Matt Hazel.

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.

MATT HAZEL

2014 Review:

Hazel spent most of the 2014 season on the practice squad. He was brought up on December 20th.

Why he might progress:

He had a year to develop on the practice squad and should be more comfortable entering the 2015 season.

Coaches are impressed by his development and should see a lot of playing time in the preseason.

Why he might regress:

Could always end up on the practice squad again, though that isn't a bad thing for developmental players.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

The fifth receiver spot is up for grabs and if Hazel impresses, the Dolphins can dump Rishard Matthews. Has a chance to make the roster but more than likely will continue to develop on the practice squad.
