The hope is that Carey can make a difference, whether it be at guard or tackle.
Carey was projected as both a guard or a tackle in the NFL depending on which team looked at him, but Coach Dave Wannstedt said Carey would begin his Dolphins career at right tackle.
He will be lining up against free agent pick-up John St. Clair to see who can win the starting job.
Any way this shakes out, the Dolphins need to strengthen their offensive line, and they have done that with Carey.
Giving up a fourth-round pick to make sure they got him was a small price to pay.
