New, comments

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

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.

JORDAN TRIPP

2014 Review:

2014 was Tripp's first year with the Dolphins.

He appeared in 13 games and recorded 3 tackles.

Why he might progress:

Could see a bigger role on defense this year. Will be more familiar with the defense.

Can switch between the middle and outside. Flexibility is a plus.

Why he might regress:

Perhaps Tripp won't show up in the preseason and show that he needs another year of experience.

In that case, he would be relegated to special teams and see only a few snaps on the defensive side.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

I am a huge fan of Tripp. I think he has some great upside and could eventually become a starter. He will be on the roster when the 2015 season begins as a backup linebacker.

My starters are Jelani Jenkins, Koa Misi, and Chris McCain.

So how do you think Jordan Tripp will do this season? Does he make your roster? Feel free to discuss below.
