A Look at our Running Backs

Is it possible that our greatest need going into the draft is RB?  I guess that would depend on who you talk to, but even if it’s not the most glaring need, if we intend on running the ball considerably more than we did last season, we’re going to need an infusion of talent and numbers in our RB stable.

Jay Ajayi

Jay Ajayi  RB  6’0″ 221

As it stands now, the feature back would be 2nd year RB Jay Ajayi.  Ajayi, who played his college ball at Boise St., was considered by many to be a 2nd RD talent.  Medical news day of the draft circulated like wildfire and the red flags went up immediately.  Apparently, the news was Ajayi had so little cartilage remaining in his knee that he was basically almost bone on bone, at which point it becomes so painful, it’s career ending.  Ajayi tore his ACL in 2011, his redshirt season at Boise St.  In 2012, Ajay came back slowly from his injury, garnering only 82 carries for 548 yards, 6.7 YPC and 4 TD’s.  in 2013, Ajayi figured more prominently, getting 249 carries for 1425 yards, 18 TD’s, along with 22 receptions for 222 yards and 1 TD.  Obviously, Ajayi was back and healthy.  2013 cemented that Ajayi was not only back, but he could be a workhorse back.  Ajayi carried the ball an astounding 347 times for 1823 yards, and an unbelievable 28 rushing TD’s.  He also caught 50 passes for 535 yards and 4 TD’s.  OK, so just how much was Ajayi the Boise St. offense???  2378 total yards, and 32 TD’s!  Incredible!

Ajayi performed well at the NFL combine.  While not a speedster, he ran 4.57, but as important for a RB, is that quick burst.  Ajayi ran 4,10 20 YD shuttle (top performer), a 39 ” vertical (tp), 121 broad jump (tp), and 11.60 60 YD shuttle (tp).  OK, so Ajayi is an athlete, a former soccer player with very good feet, and we can see from the drills, lots of explosion.

Who can we draft to be part of an effective rushing attack in 2016?  Let’s take a look!

______________________________________________________________

Zeke Elliott

Ezekiel “Zeke” Elliott RB Ohio St.  6’0″ 225

The clear cut best RB available in this draft will most likely not be available to the Dolphins if we stay at #13, but if somehow Ezekiel “Zeke” Elliott makes it to our pick at #13, it will give the Dolphins a very difficult choice.  Elliott has been compared to former Colts and Cards RB Edgerrin James.  Elliott was a great back for Ohio St., a true 3 down RB.  Elliott topped 1800 yards in both his sophomore and junior seasons, 1878 and 1821 respectively.  Elliott averaged 6.9 YPC his sophomore year and 6.3 YPC in his junior, along with scoring 18 TD’s and 23  TD’s respectively.  He’s the real deal, and while he may not be a prospect of Adrien Peterson’s ilk, he is a great prospect, quite worthy of an early first pick.  In 592 carries, Zeke has a fumble rate of 162.5, which means he fumbles once per 162.5 carries, very solid.  Fumbling is clearly not an issue.  Again, odds are, Zeke is gone by pick #13, so although he would be a great addition to our rushing attack, let’s look at some RB’s who have a better chance of being available to us after our 1st pick.

__________________________________________________________________

Derrick Henry

Derrick Henry RB Alabama  6’2″ 247

Derrick Henry is the big boy of the group, at 6’2″ 247, Henry is reminiscent of former NY Giants RB Brandon Jacobs.  Not quite as big as Jacobs who was 6’4″ 264, he’s certainly big enough.  A physical RB who is fast for his size, Henry ran a 4.54 40,  along with a 37″ vertical, and 11.50 60 yard shuttle, which shows he’s athletic for his size.  One of the negatives with Henry is he tends to run more upright, partly due to his size, and that opens him up for more hits and punishment from defenders, despite the fact that Henry delivers his fair share of punishment too.  If we’re looking to really become a run heavy team, or at least closer to a 50/50 ratio of run to pass, we could do worse having a tandem of Ajayi and Henry.  We could then pick up a change of pace back later on, one that’s faster and smaller, as we don’t have that type of back at the moment.  Henry rushed for 2219 yards on 395 carries last season (junior year) for 5.6 YPC average along with a college football leading 28 TD’s.  Henry doesn’t offer much as a receiver, logging only 17 total receptions in 3 years at Alabama.  He is, however, a workhorse who finds his way into the endzone, and lord knows, the Dolphins could stand to score more of those.

__________________________________________________________________

Keith Marshall

Keith Marshall RB Georgia  5’11” 219

Keith Marshall is about the same size as former Dolphins RB Lamar Miller.  He’s actually a bit faster too, running the 40 at a blazing 4.31, and may be an intriguing choice for the Dolphins later in the draft.  Marshall chose to play all 4 years at Georgia.  In his sophomore year, Marshall suffered a torn right ACL.  Due to that injury, Marshall has a very small body of work, only 253 total carries, 117 of which were in his freshman year.  Marshall appears to be very healthy, and could be a steal in mid to later RD’s.  Marshall also has good ball security, so he has low mileage, speed and agility, and holds on to the football.  He could be that change of pace type back for us initially.

___________________________________________________________________

Kenyan Drake

Kenyan Drake RB Alabama  6’1″ 210

Kenyan Drake is Derrick Henry’s RB mate at Alabama.  Drake was the change of pace for the workhorse Henry.  Drake had a total of 233 carries in 4 years at Alabama for 1495 yards, for a nice 6.4 YPC. Drake finished with a total of 18 TD rushing TD’s in his college career, but understandably a low figure, considering he took the backseat to Henry who scored 28 TD’s in his senior year.  He’s a potential mid to late RD pick for Miami.

________________________________________________________________

There are quite a few other prospects that the Dolphins will be looking at, especially if we don’t pick up a solid veteran RB to compliment what we already have.  Last week we picked up two former 2nd RD picks, Isaiah Pead from the Rams and former Dolphins 2nd RD pick, yes, the infamous “DT 3”, Daniel Thomas, who rejoins the team.  Can either of those 2 recapture what made them 2nd RD prospects in the first place?  Not likely, but I think there is a chance Daniel Thomas can stick on the roster, because one thing Thomas excels at is pass protection as a RB.

Piggy/Wedge have already gone into depth with many of the RB’s, and will likely continue to do so, so I won’t tread on “their” territory, and leave that to them.  If there are RB’s that you think we should be interested, bring them up on the blog and we’ll discuss them!

    D,
    I agree with you that Philly is not serious about a QB at #8 overall.
    I think they have mentioned it as a means to scare SF into trading higher than 7 slot (since Philly can cut a deal with Ravens at #6)

    • getterdone says:

      I was the one that said that the other day. $22M guaranteed to Bradford & Chase getting the highest contract of any NFL backup = probably not thinking QB in the 1st, maybe the 2nd or 3rd, but not the 1st.

      • Al in MIA says:

        They aren’t done being bitter about Chip Kelly LOL. They are messing with his head come draft time.

    Al, just remember Chippy doesn’t have personnel power in SF.

  5. Mike E. says:

    If Kelly doesn’t win in SF soon, I think he’ll be out of San Fran and the NFL for good. I think he’ll end up back in college

    That guy called that 99% of the truth? His wife is going to 99% kick his ass

    Just checked CBS NFLDraftscout

    They have 4 different guys for us at #13. Hargreaves, Dodd, Elliott and Lee

  8. Al in MIA says:

    I guess the Dolphins F.O. has done it’s job then with smoke screens.

    ———————————
    Tim thats the guy i usually include as a 7th round pick for us in a lot of mock drafts that you kept saying you have no idea who he is. OLB UTenn

    His issues is going to be long term durability. He flys around the field, he’s a great locker room kinda natural leader guy, throws his body around (hence why there are concerns how long he will last in the NFL) and has a small injury history, some of it recent. Still as far as character, motor, work ethic, etc he would be a great add.

  11. D says:

    Al, to me its not smoke screen guys it looks like they are lining up fall back options. Each of these guys are potential late rounders who have some upside. They look to be combing the value pick section of the draft.

    ———————————————
    Yeah they arent, i definately think they will take a guy mid rounds, maybe even as early as 2nd round (im guessing more like 3rd) but i dont think they will have any desire to invest that high on a QB in this draft.

  13. Rockphin says:

    Tannehill sucks!

    http://www.miamidolphins.com/news/article-1/Tannehill-Receivers-Working-To-Get-On-Same-Page/de17f39e-3d2b-4fea-b1b6-546d57bd2f9b

    “One of the things I’ve been impressed with (about) Tannehill is this offseason, from my conversations with Tannehill, he’s doing all the right things,” Darlington said. “And he’s not out there flaunting this necessarily and throwing it out there on social media or anything like that, but this is a guy who for the past six weeks has gone out with his wide receivers every week twice a week and thrown routes to them. He’s not allowed to meet with the coaching staff yet, but he has gone and dissected a lot of material from the Denver Broncos, the offense that Gase was coaching.

    “He’s doing it wherever and whenever he can because the rules restrict him from doing too much. He can come out here, work out, get in the gym and all those types of things, but he’s getting in there with these receivers, he’s watching on his own film of the Denver Broncos, he’s watching some of the Chicago Bears from last year with Jay Cutler. And then he’s taking those concepts and those routes out to the practice field with his wide receivers and doing it on his own. And I think that’s going to pay huge dividends for him because they haven’t gotten time with Adam Gase yet. For them to be successful this year, they need to get started now because this is a new system.”

    Reply

    Those are the realistic names that could still be on the board @ #13, at least 2 of the 4 should be. So its a safe bet by CBS.
    All the names are also a need at this point. Hargreaves would really a good get if he’s still there. I think CB as it stands now is the greatest need. If he’s not there I understand going BPA with one of the others, even a OT. But CB has to then be the thought in the 2nd, even trading back down into the 1st if need be.
    We need a day one starter opposite Maxwell who is still a slight question mark himself. We can’t get caught too thin on the corners!!! Not in VJ’s defense.

    Well it did result in good production with Landry and Matthews.

    yep, production good enough to merit a 6-10 record. so basically useless. like i said i heard the same the last year, i will wait till the season starts to see if there is any improvements

    • Tim Knight says:

      The production between the three of them was very good. 3 players don’t win games by themselves as you know.

  17. D says:

    GDP, there is 0 chance Denver would make a trade including CJ Anderson in their trade. I wouldnt, though, trade them for anything less than a future 1st and their 2nd rounder this year. We would be essentially trading out of the 1st round, so the compensation would have to be pretty big to do that.

    • D says:

      They value future pics at about a round lower than the current years pick so it would be like getting 2 second rounders.

      • getterdone says:

        Is why I mentioned Clady as well. They need to figure out what they want to do with him, that or up the ante’ in the rounds offered as you mentioned. Just throwing ideas out there. Denver does have several picks to work with, but are 32nd in Cap money.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Yeah
      its the last pick
      they would probably have to give us a high pick next year too

      Am I being too Greedy here

      we move down from 13 to 31
      and we also get Denver’s 2nd (which is like a 3rd)
      their 1st rounder in 2017
      and like a 4th or 5th in 2016

      13 to 31 is a big drop
      I don’t mind the drop
      but I think the compensation needs to be pretty big

  18. D says:

    Im really hoping for some sort of miracle like we got when Parker fell past some very likely candidates last year and Hargreaves is there at 13. That would be the biggest luck to fall our way this next draft. We do have a lot of good backup options, but that would be very good for us.

  19. D says:

    Piggy id be happy with this years 2nd and their 2017 1st. I have a feeling this is going to be a rebuild year for them so id expect it to wind up being a mid round first in 2017

  20. The Flying Pig says:

    plus I think we should ask for a bacon ban in Denver for the next 3 years or so

    ….just a suggestion

  21. The Flying Pig says:

    Imagine what you can do in 2017 with
    2 first rounders
    a second
    two third rounders
    two fourt rounders

    remember we have all those comp picks coming and you can use them for trading

  22. Tim Knight says:

    The trade value chart says Denver’s 1st and 2nd this year and next year’s 2nd.

    So I committed the cardinal pork sin of not selecting a LB until very late

    But I drafted a guy named Silverberry, so it worked out

    • Tim Knight says:

      Cousin of Dingleberry and Goldshower?

    • getterdone says:

      Very nice draft thru 6 rounds. I applaud you and the Fansgeek software. 🙂
      I’d be real happy with those 1st 6 guys. We’d be really good this year & for the future.

    • getterdone says:

      I like Cody Core, have mentioned him before. he could become a real contributor in a couple years. good depth guy.
      Silverberry Mouhon, WTF? Why not Maggitt who visited the Phins, or Terrance Smith, Ian Seau, Victor Ochi, Kris Frost….WhoTF is Silverberry? lol

      • The Flying Pig says:

        Silverberries are delicious

      • D says:

        GDP have ya seen the late round WR i have been suggest past few weeks? Mike Thomas USM? He has some things to work on like Core, his routes arent great, he has been known to drop a few but most of it comes from being really raw. He’s a 6’3 receiver who posted 1400 yards, 14TD’s and a 20 yard average on completions at USM, i think with the right coaching on his route running and getting a little more focus on his catches he could be a beast of a receiver.

      • getterdone says:

        D, yes I’ve seen you mention him, the other Michael Thomas…lol.
        He’s got some game to him as well.
        I like how Core was the overlooked guy with Treadwell on the other side.
        Thomas is 6’1, Cody Core is 6’3 205 with big mitts 10 3/8. He’s much faster than teammate Treadwell, ran a 4.47 Combine & 4.37 Proday with a 2.6 & 1.54 20 & 10yd split.
        I also like Geronimo Allison as a late candidate @ WR.

    We’ll be playing the Giants in pre season. Tannehill better watch his ass after he throws the football, because Vernon will likely be there a tick late.

    • Mike E. says:

      LMAO!!! That’s probably the right thing to do Randy. I’m not really that careful, like I said, eating a fair amount of bad things. I’d rather die eating a stack of pancakes with huge globs of butter than a salad with a lite vinaigrette.

    that chicken and waffle thing isnt from the south. that is some bs concoction you northerns made up. fried chicken is only fried chicken with mashed potatoes, corn, biscuits, gravy and green beans. anything else is not southern

    • Tim Knight says:

      Well think about the stoners who hang out at Taco Bell headquarters thinking up new ways to make a taco.

    Mando you’re a schmuck!

    The Dolphins are banking on a third-, fourth- and seventh-round pick being awarded to them next year. Why?

    Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive

    The compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through sixth rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.

  57. Randy says:

    If you put vegetables on a pizza, it ain’t a damn pizza anymore. It’s a salad with a built in bread stick!

  58. Tim Knight says:

    I do like chicken, bbq sauce and caramelized red onions pizza. No it’s not traditional pizza but it’s friggin tasty. There are no rules with food, eat what you will. 🙂

  59. finfanrob says:

    randy,

    yep, like i just said that aint pizza. pizza is sauce, meats, cheese then more cheese and then ad only then is it a pizza. other then that dont bother with it

  60. Randy says:

    I am a fraud bcause I do like pineapple on my pizza, but that is the only thing other than meat and cheese I eat on them. I love cooked/grilled pineapple.

  61. Tim Knight says:

    Mike, did you see Noah Syndergaard pitch? He was throwing 95 MPH sliders. LOL

  62. Mike E. says:

    My nephew is a chef, and we went to this trendy restaurant, and I got a burger with grilled pineapple on it. It was interesting, and I think it helped the burger, because the burger was overcooked, but it was still juicy because of the pineapple.

  63. finfanrob says:

    randy

    you cant see the brilliance in tanny and defend the oline so eating pineapple on pizza is expected out of you

  64. finfanrob says:

    tim,

    what part of chicken and bar b q sauce is not meat. let me guess you use tofu chicken.

    who hurt you growing up?

  66. Randy says:

    I have never had pineapple on a burger. Wouldn’t it make the damn patty slip right off the bun?

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2631204-dolphins-owner-stephen-ross-succession-plan-reportedly-approved-by-nfl

    Did you guys read this about Ross and the succession plan

    Its precautionary by ross and its a good idea

    • Tim Knight says:

      Yeah it’s going to happen someday. it will only be a matter of time until the new guy is hated.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        its a good idea
        when Joe Robbie died
        his family got screwed with Tax Issues

        Giving a serious bidder first right to be owner makes it real clean instead of going through an estate proceeding

        Its really innovative thinking by Ross to think about the future of the team

        He doesn’t want the team to be screwed when he dies

  69. Randy says:

    ffr
    Now we know that Mike likes his sausage a little fruity.

  70. Mike E. says:

    It was just a slice of grilled pineapple. It wasn’t messy, or sexual in any way. lol

  71. Randy says:

    MikeE,
    Sure, just like a cigar is just a cigar. Lol

  72. Mike E. says:

    Don’t tease OD and get his hopes up. Actually the new guy is from NY too, so no one will like him either. Yet another clueless out of touch out of towner.

    • Tim Knight says:

      As if only locals know anything anymore. There are no other avenues to find information on anything you desire. LOL

  73. finfanrob says:

    randy,

    i am sure when mike got his burger and the pineapple was just laid over the burger with the patty just laying there he was thinking. not if i had your meat in my hands first

  74. Mike E. says:

    LOL Randy

  75. The Flying Pig says:

    Nice timing

  76. finfanrob says:

    mike

    know what they say, if the pineapple isnt messy then you cored it wrong.

  77. Mike E. says:

    Why did so many prospects wear 2 different colored shoes? Is that a new trend? Do rapists wear 2 different colored shoes?

  78. Mike E. says:

    Piggy

    Looking for a new client? Offer your services to the tree

    • The Flying Pig says:

      too busy trying on new shoes

      you know how hard it is to find a 4 trotter combo that doesn’t match

  79. Tim Knight says:

    Piggy, there is a reason Ross is successful.

  80. finfanrob says:

    Piggy, there is a reason Ross is successful.

    you are crazy, next thing you know you will be saying tanny isnt the worst qb in the history of the world.

  81. finfanrob says:

    ok have a nice night all. thanks for the laughs. now back to your regularly scheduled puke fest (hey at least this time no blood) and still having to do tax returns. take care all

  82. Tim Knight says:

    Looking forward to seeing Ajayi get a more prominent role this year. The dude has talent. Can he hold up for a few years?

    • getterdone says:

      If he can be 70% as good as he was that last year @ Boise St., then we got a stud that will open things up for Tanny & the rest of the offense.
      It helps QB’s so much & vise versa, like Wilson & Lynch in Seattle for example.
      Need that good compliment of defense too. It’s still a team game like it always has been….lol

  83. uwantwat says:

    You blokes are food philistines seriously. Ham, mushroom and pineapple is a staple of Australia’s pizza industry. Pineapple rings on burgers go without saying.

    Just checked CBS NFLDraftscout

    They have 4 different guys for us at #13. Hargreaves, Dodd, Elliott and Lee
    —————————————————————
    Don’t you see what these guys are doing? Every yr they have 10 mock drafts and post each one, then later in the yr or even yrs later they show you who they picked for a certain team that actually was picked. It’s like they’re trying to make themselves look better, so people actually think they know something. Every possible player they can think of for any team they’ll put in a mock draft, at one time or another.

    I’ve seen this during halftime, and I’ve seen it on commercials. Look how great I am, because I mocked this guy to this team, but they only do it, if the player actually plays good/great.
