When it comes to lists, all-time lists are usually fun to read but what about current lists? Who are the best 10 players on this Miami Dolphins team?
The Dolphins are practicing this week as they complete their off-season work ahead of the start of training camp. 2017 comes with high expectations as the Dolphins look to return to the post-season after achieving the goal in 2016.
It’s no secret that head coach Adam Gase was not thrilled with the early exit in last years post-season and it was something that has eaten at him all off-season. It continues to we’re sure. If the Dolphins are going to advance to the post season, these ten will help them get there.
The parameters for the top 10 on this years roster is simple. They had to play for the team last year and not be a rookie or a free agent signing. As Dolphins fans are well aware, adding top named free agents doesn’t always play out the way we had hoped. So no, Julius Thomas is not on this list.
Number 10: Kiko Alonso
Alonso had a fantastic year in 2016 leading the Dolphins in tackles as well as making two game clinching plays. One against San Diego and another against San Francisco. His play earned him a contract extension and it appears that Alonso has found fit with Miami. Something he didn’t have with Bufflao and Philadelphia.
Number 9: Laremy Tunsil:
Tunsil played well last year at guard but his natural position is left tackle. The Dolphins were impressed with his play at LT last season when he stepped in for Branden Albert. So much so that they traded to Albert to Jacksonville to make Tunsil the full time left tackle.
