The Miami Dolphins have made a very strong showing in the best of the NFL AFC East Division “All-Star” team. Despite the number one ranking that is often dolled out on the NY Jets, It was the Miami Dolphins who landed more players on this unit.
Compiled by the writers of Musket Fire, The Jet Press, and BuffalowDown.com, and of course myself, we have wrapped the defensive side of the ball and the special teams and will now swing to the offensive unit.
For the list below, all positions except Safety and Cornerback were decided on by the writing staff. The secondary positions were decided by poll voting on Musket Fire.
Defensive End: Shaun Ellis (New York Jets) and Randy Starks (Miami Dolphins)
Nose Tackle: Vince Wilfork (Patriots)
Inside Linebacker: Karlos Dansby (Dolphins) and David Harris (NYJ)
Outside Linebacker: Aaron Schobel (Buffalo Bills) and Calvin Pace (NYJ)
Corner back: Darrelle Revis (NYJ) and Vontae Davis (Dolphins)
Nickel Back: Will Allen (Dolphins)
Free Safety: Jairus Byrd (Bills)
Strong Safety: Yeremiah Bell (Dolphins)
