Most football fans would agree that the most important position on the team is quarterback, but the majority of coaches at any level would also state that the play up front is equally valuable. The offense would tell you it’s the guys in the trenches that make things happen, and conversely, it’s the front seven on the defense that determine wins and losses!
With a nice combination of moves, the Miami Dolphins have transformed their linebackers group over the off-season. In 2010, the unit helped the Dolphins finish sixth in the league in total defense thanks to a Pro Bowl outside linebacker in Cam Wake and a very good inside linebacker in Karlos Dansby. However, with a series of moves this off-season the Dolphins have added depth at the position to supplement talented returning LBs: Wake, Dansby and Koa Misi.
