This means that we should be able to stop the run, but our corners and linebackers will be tested in the passing game.

It’s clear the Dolphins are loading up on big defensive tackles – Washington is 6-4, 295 – who can play defensive end in a 3-4, which Miami likely will use a lot.
For all the lack of talent at defensive end, there are times Miami will be able to field a lineup without any natural ends but with a lineup full of tackles and either four linebackers or five defensive backs.
If the Dolphins want their best 11 players on the field, it’s possible that not a single one of those 11 might end up being a defensive end, unless Charles Harris makes major strides this year in a hybrid linebacker/defensive end role that Kyle Van Voy played very well for New England.
And Harris hasn’t been a factor in team drills during OTAs because of a wrist injury.
