Season 5 for the Miami Dolphins will see a team looking to bounce back from narrowly missing the playoffs. On the offensive side of the ball this team is loaded at all the skill positions. Take a look below for grades for each position group.
QB – Tua… that’s all you need to know. He is in his contract year and will need to perform if he wants to be known as a franchise QB. He doesn’t lack the physical tools, the question is can his coach put him in postions to win.
Running Backs – Breece Hall and Matt Brieda are the big names in the Dolphin backfield. Breece is more of the power runner but can shake and move with the best of them. Brieda is our 3rd down back and capable of running bast any defender in the game. Brieda 98 speed is a problem… but his injury prone history keeps him in check for the most part. The Dolphins also drafted a rookie running back in case of an injury here or there.
Wideouts – Probably one of the strongest parts of this team. Rashod Batemon, Preston Williams were developed and built for success on the PS5. These two wide outs have great route running ratings and enough speed to take the top off a defense. Through in their size, Batemon at 6’2 and Williams at 6’4, and you have a core who have an opportunity to give most teams fits. We also have TY Hilton in the event of an injury throughout the season.
Tightend – Mike Gesicki and Brennan Eagles are the guys to look for here. Gesicki has seen success all cycle. He gets his yards off physical play and positioning. Brennan Eagles on the other hand brings speed and finesse to the table. Each of these players can be flexed outside as well to create even more nightmare match ups.
Offensive Line – This is were the Dolphins struggle. The foundation of this unit is Austin Jackson and Ereck Flowers. The Dolphins also have veteran help to try and bolster the unit. If any of our starters go down with injury then we will have issues replacing them with a quality back up.
