I really hope Tankersley gets it, because he has the potential to be a really nice playmaker for us.

Adam Gase said he wants Cordrea Tankersley to approach the open cornerback job like it’s his. But it’s certainly not his yet.

Dolphins defensive coordinator Matt Burke said this week that the team plans to give about equal reps to Tankersley, Tony Lippett and Bobby McCain in the competition to start at one boundary cornerback job opposite Xavien Howard.

Tankersley, a third-round pick out of Clemson 14 months ago, started 11 games last season and the results were mixed. He played competently at times but also allowed a 119.8 passer rating in his coverage area, highest on the team, compared with 77.3 for McCain.

“The biggest thing is the speed of the game — adjusting to the speed of the game and try not to get star-struck,” Tankersley said. “I feel like I need to be more aggressive. This is my second year, so I’ll definitely take what I learned last year and step it up a notch. My next step is just to become one of the best corners in the league.”
