90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Emmanuel Dieke

New, comments

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at defensive lineman Emmanuel Dieke.

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.

EMMANUEL DIEKE

2014 Review:

2014 was Dieke's first season in the NFL. He was originally an UDFA signed by the New York Giants.

He was cut before the season began. Spent time on and off the Dolphins practice squad.

Why he might progress:

Team sees some upside in him as a pass rusher. Could see extended playing time in the preseason, due to most of the defensive line being locks to make the final roster.

Why he might regress:

Will most likely see the practice squad again or be one of the teams cut.

Will remain an NFL journeyman.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

Dieke has an uphill battle to make the roster, but I don't see him making it. There is too much depth on the defensive line and there is no room for Dieke.

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