With the Bills expected to take small steps forward under a new coaching staff, the Patriots mired in injury and off field issues, and the Jets being, well the Jets, many are anticipating an opportunity for the Dolphins to seize control of the division. Whether or not that happens will be based on a number of factors, but as always the rookie class will be counted on to produce early. Here is a look at what to expect.
