RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Vernon had a solid rookie season for the Dolphins in 2012 with 3.5 sacks and 32 tackles but will likely be pushed for playing time by this year's first-round pick, Dion Jordan.
Vernon is not exactly a household name after totaling just 1.5 sacks in six games during his final year of college, but the in-town product is nonetheless a great sleeper to emerge as an IDP factor as a rookie. His athletic talents are well documented, and the Dolphins simply have no talent at defensive end outside of Cameron Wake. Vernon's top competition for snaps appears to be Jamaal Westerman, who had just 32 tackles and 3.5 sacks for the Jets last year as a 3-4 outside linebacker.
