90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Calvin Barnett

New, comments

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at defensive tackle Calvin Barnett.

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.

CALVIN BARNETT

2014 Review:

2014 was Barnett's first year in the NFL.

He joins the team after spending the 2015 offseason with the Cleveland Browns. He spent 2014 on the Browns practice squad.

Why he might progress:

Coming out in the draft last season, scouts believed Barnett would fit well into a 4-3 defense.

Let's see how he does in the preseason for the Dolphins then.

Plus it helps having a great teacher in Ndamukong Suh.

Why he might regress:

Will most likely see a teams practice squad.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

We are stacked at defensive tackle, there is no way Barnett can beat out the top 4 (Suh, Earl Mitchell, C.J. Mosley, & Jordan Phillips). His only hope is to beat out A.J. Franics or Anthony Johnson.

Barnett doesn't make my roster, but could end up on the practice squad for the Dolphins.

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