90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Olivier Vernon

New, comments

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

Andrew Weber-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.

OLIVIER VERNON

2014 Review:

2014 was Vernon's third year with the Dolphins.

He started in all 16 games and recorded 46 tackles, 6.5 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles.

Why he might progress:

Offenses will have two threats to deal with, Ndamukong Suh and Cameron Wake.

With both those guys getting double teamed, it opens up things for Vernon.

Why he might regress:

Vernon dealt with a few injuries back in 2013. Needs to avoid playing hurt.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

Vernon will be the other starting defensive end, opposite Cameron Wake, when the 2015 season begins.
