The Miami Dolphins' front four looks to be the strength of the Dolphins' defense again in 2013. While the end position could have the duo of Pro Bowler Cameron Wake and the first player defensive player taken in this year's draft, the heart and soul of the defensive front will rest on the interior.

It's hard to bring up Paul Soliai without mentioning Randy Starks and vice versa. Last season, the two anchored a run defense that was near the top of the league for much of the season before teetering off at the end.
