Dolphins depth chart released ahead of Atlanta Falcons preseason game

New, comments

It is early in the preseason, but the first depth chart of the year has been released by the Miami Dolphins.

The Miami Dolphins have released their first depth chart of the year as part of their preparation for their first preseason game, a Thursday night contest in Miami against the Atlanta Falcons. The depth chart does not yet include the newly added Jay Cutler, who has not yet officially signed his contract. And, while this is still extremely early and things will obviously change, it does give us a quick look at what the coaches are seeing.

The starting offense does not have any real surprises to it. Two of the starters, quarterback Ryan Tannehill and left guard Ted Larsen, have suffered injuries that are expected to keep both of them out of action for a lengthy period of time, possibly for the year. The defensive starters include rookie Raekwon McMillan as on of the three linebackers - and assuming the Dolphins listed the linebackers in the formation in which they will play despite not including “MLB,” “WLB,” or “SLB” designations, he is listed as the starting middle linebacker.

The second team is a little more interesting. The second-string wide receivers are Leonte Carroo, Jakeem Grant, and Drew Morgan. Carroo and Grant are not really surprises in those two spots, but undrafted rookie Morgan taking the second spot on the depth chart as the “slot” receiver could be a sign that the coaches are impressed by a player who was flashing throughout the offseason program.

The full depth chart is:
