As we all know, Dallas known for their stout offensive line. For Miami, throughout camp thus far no other group has excelled more than the defensive line.
In the 27-10 victory against the New York Giants last Friday night we didn’t see defensive ends Cameron Wake and Mario Williams or defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. This Friday night will be their first test of the season.
The second depth chart of the season was released today. There aren’t really any surprises that you wouldn’t expect.
Look for wide receiver Rashawn Scott to beat Griff Whalen out and move up behind Jarvis Landry. I also hope to see cornerback Bobby McCain get more snaps this week and see if he can surpass Tony Lippett on the depth chart.
- Miami signed defensive end Cedric Reed last night. Reed was an undrafted free agent last year, spending the 2015-16 season on the Buffalo Bills‘ practice squad. He joins the crowded stable of lineman in Miami.
- Wide receiver Devante Parker is still coming along slowly, participating primarily in individual drills. I’d expect to see him dressed week three of the preseason. He did, however, take a couple reps with the first-team offense in 11v11 drills.
- Cornerback Byron Maxwell practiced today after sitting out yesterday.
- Who didn’t practice? Rookie running back Kenyan Drake. He may start the season on the PUP list if Isiah Pead, Jay Ajayi, and Arian Foster stay healthy.
- Rookie offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil is getting more reps at left guard. As evidenced above he still sits behind Dallas Thomas on the depth chart, though.
