Miami Dolphins: Three Bold Predictions For Training Camp

This time last season, many of us pundits who cover the NFL were choosing the Miami Dolphins as the sleeper team in the AFC to make the playoffs. Now, we are picking the Dolphins to escape the AFC East bottom. What a difference a season makes. The AFC East might be the most improved division in football. And while the Dolphins did their share to make moves to get to the second season...

The new Dolphins offensive line will take time to gel

With the offensive line easily being the weakest link on the team last year, General Manager Dennis Hickey and the Miami Dolphins’ front office had to completely rebuild the offensive line this off-season. They did that by signing left tackle Branden Albert, guard Shelley Smith, tackle Jason Fox, and guard Daryn Colledge, and drafting right tackle Ja’Wuan James and guard Billy...

Miami Dolphins preparing for unexpected training camp battle

Heading into training camp, it looks like one of the biggest position battles is going to be an unexpected one – the one that is going to take place at the guard position. The Miami Dolphins drafted Dallas Thomas last year and he was nothing but a bust. He couldn’t find a home on the offensive line despite basically being moved around to every position. He couldn’t hold his...

Welcome changes expected to the Miami Dolphins offense

In the two seasons under Joe Philbin, the Miami Dolphins’ offense has ranked in the 26th and 27th respectively in the league. With Mike Sherman leading the offense, the Dolphins were unable to provide a creative, explosive offense that is required to put up points in today’s NFL. Well with the firing of Mike Sherman this offseason, the Dolphins wanted to bring in a young offensive...

Miami Dolphins: Lining Up On The Offensive Side Of The Ball

These are the 1980s Miami Dolphins. This isn’t Dwight Stephenson lining up in the middle. There is no Roy Foster or Keith Sims as Dan Marino’s first line of defense from Bruce Smith or Jim Jeffcoat. These Dolphins have a quarterback who could be something special – if he learns to hold onto the ball on the run and the offensive line can keep him upright for an entire season...

Even a little improvement to the Fins OLine can make a big difference in 2014

Football is a game won in the trenches, on the offensive side the Dolphins were rarely unable to win that battle. The Bucs, both Bills, the Jets, and the Ravens games are all great examples in which the Dolphins were dominated on the line. Take away one or two sacks in each game and the Dolphins could have potentially won these games. But instead of looking at the “What If’s”...

Miami Dolphins Reach for Tackle JaWuan James

If you remember the other day, I thought the Dolphins would look to defense in the first round of the draft after a prosperous free agent period.Guess that shows you what I and many in the media really know. There was a rumor or two that Ju’Wuan James was a player this franchise was looking at as a potential first pick. The Tennessee Volunteer, a 6-foot-6, 311-pound offensive lineman...

Dolphins' O-Line Still Needs Work

After an exciting start to the free agency period, the Miami Dolphins were quite quiet this past week. Early on, Miami has made significant changes in the secondary and perhaps most notably, up front offensively. But while the Dolphins have sought to improve the offensive line early on, there is still plenty of work to do.Last season, Miami's front five was absolutely dreadful...

Miami Dolphins need OL help, a look at the draft’s top offensive guards

Miami fans have been putting much of their attention on the offensive tackle position this winter. As glaring a weakness as there is outside at tackle, however, is the hole at guard. Nate Garner can start in a pinch, but isn’t somebody you want to head into Training Camp with penciled in as a starter. Dallas Thomas was a 3rd round pick last season, but didn’t see the field, even...

Miami Dolphins: Grading Their 2013 Draft Class After Year One

With the Dolphins just missing the playoffs at 8-8, one could look toward the rookies as one reason for the mediocrity. No 2013 draftee made much of a contribution, with only two rookies getting semi-regular snaps on offense or defense. In fact, the Dolphins had the lowest snap count in the NFL for a rookie class. Even the Dolphins' first-round pick, Dion Jordan, failed to perform...
