The most noticeable spot on the Dolphins’ opening depth chart, outside the pecking order at quarterback, came at corner, where free-agent acquisition Richard Marshall had jumped ahead of Vontae Davis as the starting boundary corner opposite Sean Smith. Television audiences then got a view into the criticism Dolphins coaches had for Davis’ work ethic in the first episode of “Hard Knocks.” The team’s preseason opener further indicated that Davis has work to do if he wants to regain his starting job. Davis, who has 36 starts in his three NFL seasons, opened the preseason as the team’s nickel corner — a spot that many observers pegged would be Marshall’s after Miami signed him. Davis then played outside corner with the second-team defense. The physical corner had his struggles last season, which included missing four games with injuries. While defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle downplayed the depth chart when talking to reporters last Tuesday, he was very complimentary of Marshall, saying the ex-Cardinal is “one of the most competitive guys I’ve been around. … There’s not a snap that he’s out here where he’s not giving you everything he’s got and fighting and scratching to win.”
