This is not only the biggest weakness on what is a pretty good defense, but the biggest weakness on this team right now.
Ideally, though, you would like your free safety to be able to get people lined up in the middle of the field when he is in the deep third, and this is an area where Culver is going to struggle. He does not have the necessary experience to run the defense. He is going to have trouble getting himself lined up, let alone trying to get everyone else aligned.
Culver is not a quick-reacting safety in the little I have seen him on film. He is slow to break from the middle of the field. His lack of experience hinders his ability to read routes quickly and get a jump on the football. He does not always take good angles against the run or the pass.
What is even more alarming for Miami is the complete lack of depth at the position. The Dolphins have only three other true safeties on their roster. One of those is rookie Reshad Jones, whom they took in the fifth round of the draft. Jones will have to contribute early and often in the sub packages if this unit is not going to be exposed in 2010.
