- Mike Tannenbaum hired... ...as Dolphins' executive VP of football operations
- Philbin retained Coach Philbin was given a contract extension
- Fins season ends on low note Jets down the Fins to end their season 8-8
- CB Will Davis out for season Miami placed CB Will Davis on the IR, ending his season
I got 99 problems but a QB ain’t one!
How sweet it is to enter the off-season with that mindset. This off-season I am looking toward the draft to build this franchise for long term sustainable success and provide Tannehill with the support that he needs. However, the Dolphins have a lot of cash in their pockets and can do a bit of shopping if they so desire. The talk has naturally been focused on the wide receiver position with Mike Wallace, Greg Jennings and Brain Hartline available. But what about other positions of need? Here is a list of toys I would consider buying with the Dolphins credit card this off-season, I am limiting my choices to one player from a particular position of need and I have excluded wide receivers.
Ok so what if the guy looks like Fred Flintstone! It’s time for Eric to come home, and I don’t mean back to Houston with the Texans. Eric played his college ball at the University of Miami and it’s time for him to return to South Florida. Eric was r Continue reading
Brian Hartline was a bright spot on the Dolphins much maligned receiving core in 2012, and he became the favorite target of rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
In a contract year as the #1 receiver, Hartline posted career best numbers with 74 receptions, 1083 yards, and one touchdown.
Hartline, undoubtedly was the best receiver the Dolphins had on its roster, but was it that difficult for him to stand-out given the group of receivers around him?
Even the dullest of metals will shine amongst rubble right! Before I am crucified, let me share my thoughts. Let’s take an in-depth look at Brian Hartline.
Brian Hartline was selected in the 4th round of the 2009 draft by the Miami Dolphins. He played his college career at Ohio State University where he was part of the 2008 BCS National Championship Team that lost to LSU. Hartline was listed as the #2 WR behind Brian Robiskie. Hartline was not a dominant college player, but proved too be an average one, his production in college left much to be desired and was average at best. It’s fai Continue reading
Miami Dolphins 2013 Draft Scenario’s
Current needs: OT, CB, WR, DE, FS, TE
Point of note: It is in my opinion that whatever occurs at the Left Tackle position with Jake Long and at the Cornerback position with Sean Smith will shape Miami’s early draft rounds more so than any other position.
*Each scenario holds precedence over the scenario that follows it.
1st Round Draft Scenario’s
|Jake Long leaves and Jonathan Martin stays at RT|
|1st round Priority: Focus should be on LT|
|OT||Luke Joeckel||(Top 5)||6-6||310|
|OT||Eric Fisher||(Top 10)||6-7||305|
|OT||Lane Johnson||(Top 20)||6-6||302|
|Jake Long leaves and Jonathan Martin moves over to LT|
|1st round Priority: Miami may wait till 2nd or 3rd round to draft RT|
|Note: The top RT DJ Fluker is a beast who can be a perennial pro-bowler. But DJ Fluker is suited for a power based MBS. Miami may wait for a prospect at RT that can fit into their ZBS in the 2nd or 3rd round. Miami can therefore pursue CB, FS or DE with its first selection.|
