Topping the list......

Quote:
When Bill Parcells and company took over three years ago, their goal was to continuously churn the bottom of the Miami Dolphins roster.

The more they replaced fringe players with promising youngsters such as offensive lineman Nate Garner -- who began last season on the practice squad but ended the season starting eight games -- the better off the team would be.

In year three of this renovation project, the Dolphins are getting to the point where former first-round picks, players such as Jason Allen, are no longer safe.

And it's highly likely that some of this front office's own lackluster draftees over the last three years – Pat White, Patrick Turner, Andrew Gardner, John Nalbone, J.D. Folsom and Lionel Dotson -- are all on the bubble, needing strong offseasons to extend their South Florida stay.

The Sun Sentinel takes a look at 15 players from last year's team who are fighting an uphill battle to make the team's 53-man roster in 2010.

Cornerback Jason Allen

When is it safe to give up on a former first-round pick? That's the debate the Dolphins have continually had about Allen, who has bounced back and forth from safety to cornerback. While it appears he's finally found a home at cornerback, this team has a glaring vacancy at free safety. Allen's made the most starts (12) of all the contenders, but he's an afterthought these days, which makes it a long shot he'll be given an opportunity to compete for any starting spot.

I don't agree. The loss of Nate Jones, and Will Allen's knee makes CB a thin area. Jason Allen makes the team.

Corey Sheets vs Lex Hilliard
That's another position where someone is going to get the axe.

Patrick Turner....bye, bye.

Jason Allen survives merely on luck...injuries and such figure to help him make the team....sadly.

A couple linebackers obviously don't make the team....we brought in a shipload of them this off season.....

Pat White.....see ya'....Thigpen and Pennington at #2 and #3 QB. If we must work on some goofy package with a mobile QB, then use Thigpen for it. Pat White was far more dangerous to the Dolphins than any of our opponents. It was painful to watch him last year....probably the single worst season from a Dolphin's QB that I can remember. I mean, Beck at least completed a pass or two.

I will be very surprised if Hillard is not on the roster.
