Dolphins position battle: Cornerback

Training camp is just around the corner for the Miami Dolphins. Later this summer there will be plenty of interesting position battles to watch throughout the roster.

This week ESPN.com’s Dolphins page takes a look at several key competitions. On Wednesday, we examine the cornerback position.

Position battle: Cornerback

Competitors: Cortland Finnegan, Jamar Taylor, Will Davis

Analysis: This three-way battle will be one of the most exciting positions to watch in training camp. Finnegan, Taylor and Davis vary in playing style and experience. This trio will battle for the opportunity to start opposite Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes in Miami. All three players received first-team reps throughout the offseason. Each corner also made plays at different times. The final decision at cornerback probably won’t be made until late in camp and the preseason. Finnegan, Taylor and Davis are all capable of winning this competition. But barring injury, I expect Finnegan’s vast experience to carry him through and make him the Week 1 starter.

Walker's pick: Finnegan
