Miami Dolphins Depth Chart Projections: Complete 53-man Roster

After reviewing each position on the Dolphins’ roster throughout the offseason, we finally have a completed depth chart projection for the 2017 season.

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Throughout the offseason, I’ve given an in-depth analysis of each position on Miami’s roster and predicted what the team’s depth chart would look like come week 1. Well, after trudging through the dog days of summer without football, we’re finally half-way through the preseason and roster cuts are closing in.

Below, I’ve combined each past Depth Chart Projection while making slight changes due to injuries, changes in performance, and free agent signings that have occurred since the publishing of past projections. So, without further adue, I present to you my final Depth Chart Projection of the 2017 offseason, complete with a practice squad projection as well. Your thoughts and opinions are always welcome, so leave them in the comments!
