Dolphins 2012 third-round pick Olivier Vernon opened training camp as the team's starting right defensive end.
The Fins loved what they saw from Vernon at spring workouts, and he flashed with 3.5 sacks on limited snaps as a rookie. This position may eventually go to Dion Jordan or perhaps incumbent RE Jared Odrick, but the Dolphins want Vernon geared up for an increased role. He has explosive pass-rushing traits.
I love this! This is what I was hoping to see. I don't want Odrick starting across from Wake.
