Cameron sees Carey at LT

Dolphins coach Cam Cameron said one reason why the team didn't pick a left tackle Saturday is because it already has one in former right tackle Vernon Carey.

"This young man has a lot of ability," Cameron said Saturday. "In my view, we have a guy that can develop into the kind of left tackle we're looking for. Is that going to happen? We're going to find out.

This will be Carey's second go-round at the position. The Dolphins traded up in the first round of the 2004 draft to take the former Miami Hurricane with the 19th overall selection and plug him in at left tackle.

But during training camp, it quickly became apparent that he lacked the confidence to play the line's most important position and he was moved to the right side. Carey finally had a good season last year at right tackle.

Anthony Alabi is expected to replace Carey at right tackle.
