First depth chart of the season is out
*It's amazing to me that Rex Hadnot isn't making any headway along the offensive line. He hasn't overtaken Drew Mormino at right guard after two weeks of camp and isn't even in the picture at center.
*I've told you guys several times that L.J. Shelton simply isn't the answer. He's an afterthought player and as long as he's one of your five best, your offensive line is putrid. Well, the good news is he hadn't been able to wrest the starting right tackle spot from Anthony Alabi after two weeks and that was even while Alabi was clearly not 100 percent.
The bad news is Alabi limped off the practice field today and Shelton took his place.
*Kevin Vickerson doesn't look like he's going to make this team unless he simply plays out of his mind in the preseason.
*Joe Toledo is starting to be something of an injury disappointment, especially given the fact there are jobs open at guard and tackle. Also note that Andre' Goodman isn't on the depth chart because of his injury.
*Robert McCune has been pretty good as a backup to Zach Thomas during camp. The backup job is his to win if he shines on special teams. Rookie Kelvin Smith seems headed to the practice squad unless he goes crazy in the preseason.
*The battle for the fifth receiver spot -- after Booker, Chambers, Ginn Jr. and Hagan -- is going to be interesting.
*Looking at this team on paper, one gets the feeling they'll be fine if they can avoid injuries. But if they're hit with a couple of injuries the Dolphins are in BIG trouble.
