Special Teams Coverage Review (2009 Part 3)

With 12 games in the books, the Dolphins are 75% of the way through the season. And so it's time once again to take a look at how the special teams coverage guys are stacking up in terms of tackles.

In just four games since the last coverage review I did, Nathan Jones has recorded 7 special teams tackles. He now has a whopping 17 on the season, and a forced fumble on coverage as well. This is pretty incredible since last year he recorded 9 STTs all season, and Miami's top tacklers on coverage in 2008 (Jason Allen and Patrick Cobbs) recorded 16 each on the season. Jones has surpassed those numbers in just 12 games. He's simply a beast covering kicks right now. In fact, he seems to have taken over Jason Allen's role as the top coverage guy.

Lex Hilliard and Tyrone Culver are also making their impacts felt, with 12 and 11 STTs respectively.

Here's how all the players stack up according to special teams tackles:
