13.  Aqua Green – Vonta Davis, DB

Vontae Davis became infamous for two things. The first was being traded on Hard Knock and calling his grandma. The second was retiring from football at halftime in a game where his Buffalo Bills were getting crushed. If you put all that aside, Davis was a dominant cornerback for the Miami Dolphins, and even the Indianapolis Colts, at one time.

14. Orange – Karlos Dansby, LB

The first linebacker off the board is the man with a nose for the football and stats similar to Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher. Karlos Dansby was a tackling machine for the Miami Dolphins and a player that did the dirty work and always got the job done. He and Suh give you two sure-fire tacklers and playmakers on the defensive side of the ball.

15. White- Reggie Bush, RB

Half man, half amazing. Reggie Bush encompassed that in nearly every stop during his football career. He wasn’t quite the player for the Miami Dolphins that he was when he was with the New Orleans Saints, but Bush was a dynamic playmaker that combined with Brandon Marshall to give the Dolphins a fun offense.

16. Navy Blue – Brent Grimes, DB

Brent Grimes made up for his size with extreme technique and athletic ability. His one-handed interception against the Detroit Lions while in coverage of Calvin Johnson showed just why he was a special player. Grimes’ time in Miami wasn’t the longest and didn’t end the best, but he was a dynamic and important player.
