Defensive Line – Both and 1st and 2nd team overwhelmed Atlanta’s offensive line. They are scary good. Earl Mitchell was eating, getting single team blocking beside Suh.
Ryan Tannehill – He looks very comfortable and once again tore a team apart using his multiple skill players. Most notably Lamar Miller and Jarvis Landry
Zach Vigil – Was a tackling machine with the backups and showed solid speed.
A.J. Francis – Has quietly had a solid preseason. I think he has probably solidified his roster spot as a backup DT.
Dallas Thomas – He was tasked with playing the most difficult position on the line making everyone cry out for Tannehill’s safety. However, he did not get Tannehill killed. Swapping around like that is not easy. I was impressed on how he did enough to get the job done.
Josh Freeman – In limited playing time he looked sharp and moved the team. Is it enough to survive the first cut?
Andrew Franks- He nailed a 51-yard field goal and was perfect on the night. That was the biggest pressure kick of the preseason. The kicker battle is too close to call.
Matt Hazel/Rishard Mathews – Both looked solid as they have all preseason. Will Miami be able to keep 6 WRs?
Matt Moore – Has been trending on this list. Had a horrible display of pocket presence and lost the football giving Atlanta points in the first half. Then had his arm hit to throw an INT in the 2nd half, not what you expect from your veteran backup.
Chris McCain – He was given extensive playing time late in the game and was not overly impressive rushing the passer. I would expect him to be extremely disruptive in that situation.
Anthony Johnson – He did not make any obvious mistakes but he was pretty invisible. I think it is unlikely he is going to make the team at this stage.
Mike Pouncey – He hurt his knee early in the game and then came back into the game. The early assumption is it's a mild sprain, however, I personally thought it was foolish for him to re-enter the game on it in the preseason. He knows better.
Mike Gillislee – Similar to Anthony Johnson, he did not do anything wrong. However, I did not see him do anything to convince the team to keep him. With Ajayi now back, I am not sure he survives the first wave of cuts.
