Projected 2015 starters: Miami Dolphins

Around The NFL predicts the Week 1 starting lineups for all 32 teams, analyzing the potential impact of each rookie class. See every breakdown here.

» Greg Jennings was the odd man out at receiver. While he's a safe bet to make the team because of the guaranteed money in his contract, we have first-round pick DeVante Parker beating him out for a starting job. Landry is the most versatile receiver on the team, and Stills will be in three-receiver sets going deep. Jennings will be a well-paid No. 4 insurance policy.

» The defensive line is loaded, but the Dolphins are very thin at a few positions. Misi is a so-so starter in the middle, and the best options on the strong side are Paysinger and Chris McCain, who had 46 snaps one season ago.

» Cornerback is also an issue. The team has to fill a lot of snaps after saying goodbye to Cortland Finnegan and Jimmy Wilson. The team's weak 2013 draft class including second-day picks Jamar Taylor and Will Davis need to step up. This is a group that could get picked on.

» Lamar Miller is locked in as the team's starting running back, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see fifth-round pick Jay Ajayi develop into a 1B option in the backfield.

» We anticipate McCain-on-McCain crime when Brice and Bobby compete for the slot cornerback role.

» Dallas Thomas, Billy Turner, and rookie Jamil Douglas are battling for two guard spots.
