Dallas Thomas has been a pleasant surprise thus far through OTAs and the first week of minicamp, but the team needs to cross their fingers that Thomas can continue to improve and prove his worth as the team's top option at LG. Thomas would instantly aid in upgrading the offensive line and allow the team to slowly develop third-round pick Billy Turner as he transitions from a college tackle to a professional guard.

Lamar Miller, Knowshon Moreno and Daniel Thomas (stop laughing) all are in the mix for the No. 1 running back job for the Miami offense this season. Miller has received the bulk of the first-string snaps this offseason and looks to be in great form entering his third season. There hasn't been much news about Thomas, but Moreno's name has made news due to the former Bronco being out of shape. Look for Miller to run away with this one.

Dion Jordan disappointed many outside of the Miami fanbase last season as many called him a bust. But the savvy Miami fans knew about Jordan's injury history and knew the third overall selection was not fully healthy. DC Kevin Coyle recently explained the team contemplated putting Jordan on IR for the entire season. Jordan, now healthy with 10-15 extra pounds on him, is ready to go. Is he Olivier Vernon's back up, or does he serve another role?

Charles Clay had quite the breakout season during 2013 and will return as Miami's top option at the tight end position, but the situation behind Clay is quite murky. With Dion Sims, Michael Egnew, rookie Arthur Lynch, Kyle Miller and UDFA Harold "Gator" Hoskins all vying for the No. 2 TE job, it is quite murky indeed. Look for Sims to win the No. 2 job while the remaining field battle for the No. 3 and No. 4 gigs.

Perhaps the biggest question Miami must answer this offseason overshadows the defense, which has been the stronger unit on the Miami squad over the past, well, decade or so. Miami has been lacking a dominant middle linebacker and it truly showed last season as the defense uncharacteristically struggled defending the run. Miami must decide if Koa Misi is the answer they are looking for at middle linebacker.
