90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Derrick Shelby

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at defensive end Derrick Shelby.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

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.

DERRICK SHELBY

2014 Review:

2014 was Shelby's third year with the Dolphins.

He appeared in 15 games and recorded 26 tackles, 3 sacks, and an interception.

Why he might progress:

Has improved every year as a depth player and should continue that trend on a stacked defensive line.

Also helps playing beside Ndamukong Suh.

Why he might regress:

Great against the run, not as great against the pass. Needs to improve in that area.

The defensive line is stacked with talent and playing time may not be as much.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

Shelby will be on the roster when 2015 begins and will be a core depth player for the Dolphins. This may be his last season as a Dolphin.
