Analyzing the Miami Dolphins Roster: Offensive Tackles

Now that we've analyzed the surprisingly small tight end spot, we're going to do a complete turn-around and look at the biggest position on the roster, the offensive line. Oh the tales that can be told about this unit, and very few of them are actually good ones. The Miami Dolphins offensive line has been a struggling lot even before Ryan Tannehill came in and became the starting...

What direction should the Miami Dolphins take with the guard position?

Heading into the 2015 season, the Miami Dolphins only need to fill one position on the offensive line. With Branden Albert set to come back, Mike Pouncey moving back to center, Ja’Wuan James ready to take back the right tackle position and Billy Turner penciled in as one of the starting guards, they will only need to find the other guard to play on the line.The Dolphins can address...

Miami Dolphins 2015 NFL Off-Season Preview

Positions of Need Guard The Dolphins had one of the worst offensive lines in football in 2013 and their solution was to basically have an all new starting 5 in 2014, with 4 new starters and no one playing at the same spot as they played in 2013. It didn’t really work out as only left tackle Branden Albert graded out above average and he went down for the season with a torn ACL...

Fear Not Dolphin Fans. The Miami Dolphins Will Rise Again!

Another Fine Piece Thanks To Tony Nicoletti!All this talk of mediocrity. About how the Dolphins are doomed, and not going anywhere.

Evaluating rookie right tackle Ja’Wuan James’ first year with the Miami Dolphins

Drafted in the first round by the Miami Dolphins, tackle Ju’Wuan James played all 16 games in his rookie season. Little did he know, he would be called upon to be the team player the Dolphins envisioned him to be on both sides of the line.

The Miami Dolphins mediocre season ends in disappointment

After the Miami Dolphins lost to the New York Jets on Sunday, it put an end to a season in which at times looked very positive. Miami at one point had an elite defense and a quarterback who was having a breakout season, along with a running back who proved he can get the job done. Ryan Tannehill posted over 4,000 yards and was the first Miami quarterback to do so since Hall of Famer...

Report: Miami Dolphins lose key offensive lineman for rest of the season

The Dolphins made the right call going with Branden Albert over Eugene Monroe

This offense the Dolphins filled their biggest hole by giving Branden Albert a 5 year 46M$ deal including $25M in guaranteed money. A steep price perhaps but Dennis Hickey and the Dolphins believed they were getting an elite LT. The move at the time came with a little bit of criticism as many fans believed Eugene Monroe was the best tackle on the market and also came at a cheaper...

Last year the Dolphins line was historically bad, 59 sacks was the 10th most of all time. Even with five new starters, the new line should easily be able to be at least a mediocre line.
