90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Tyler McDonald

New, comments

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

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.

TYLER MCDONALD

2014 Review:

2014 was McDonald's first year in the league. He was signed by the New England Patriots but was later waived during training camp.

The Dolphins signed him to a reserve/future contract in January.

Why he might progress:

McDonald impressed some people in rookie training camp and kept making consistent plays.

Will see some playing time, in the preseason, due to the top 4 receivers being locked in on the depth chart (Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker, Jarvis Landry, Greg Jennings).

Why he might regress:

Not much to expect of McDonald. Went undrafted and was waived in July last season. Will be playing for a spot on a team's practice squad.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

McDonald is buried on the depth chart and will most likely see the practice squad at the end of the offseason.

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