Camp Battles – DT

No more Ndamukong Suh.  He’s in Los Angeles, supposedly next to Aaron Donald, who’s holding out.  If I haven’t read at least 20 articles written by writers outside of FLA who work for major companies as ESPN, CBS, NFL.com etc that proclaim that because Suh is gone, this defense just can’t be any good.  Let’s face facts, this Dolphins defense wasn’t that good with him, so to say his loss will be monumental doesn’t register for me.    Enough of Suh, because we’re looking at what we DO have, not what we don’t.  As has been said ad nauseam, we’re going to be rotating players on the D-line much more than we have in the past, specifically in the NS era, where he played 971 snaps a season, which is just too much, even for a top 5 DT in the NFL.

Honestly, I say this with no malice, but I think it’s very possible that an average football fan from a different team might not be able to name 1 DT on our current roster.  There are no “stars”, and besides the Akeem Spence, who we picked up in a trade with the Lions for a 2019 conditional 7th RD pick, our oldest DT at the moment is 25 years old, and that’s probably our most talented one, Jordan Phillips.  With the current philosophy of heavy rotation, the pressure won’t fall on one particular player, although Jordan Phillips will be expected to play at a higher level now, as he’s now “the man”.  Let’s take a look at who we have . . .

Jordan Phillips DT – 6’6 341 – 25YO

The 2015 2nd RD pick (Pick#52) came to the Dolphins with a reputation as a DT who has all the physical gifts you could ask for, except the “inconsistent motor” tag.  Oh, the dreaded on/off switch and the always included “if this guy ever decides he wants to play, watch out!”.  He’s had 3 seasons of “cruising in my opinion, he hasn’t really shown himself to be a consistent player, still “showing flashes”, but nothing totally tangible to grab at. Maybe if he’s rotating in and out more, he’ll give better effort while he’s out there, and I’m sure the coaches are hoping for just that.  It’s like a starting pitcher who is thrown into the bullpen, he can just let go for a couple of innings and throw as hard as he can, because he doesn’t have to try and go 9 innings, only 2.  58 total tackles (37 solo) and 4.5 sacks tells me he’s been playing to stay fresh for 9 innings.  Time to go out there and kill it every snap young man!

________________________________________________________________

Davon Godchaux DT – 6’3 315 23YO

Godchaux was such a pleasant surprise last season.  Last year’s 5th RD pick (178th) had a very promising season.  This kid has a great motor, and the results are there to see. He can tackle too, and last year, Godchaux finished with 40 tackles (26 solo).  That’s production.  Godchaux didn’t register a sack, but I saw him around the QB just missing a few times.  This kid has me hopeful, but I love the overachievers.  I thought Godchaux showed some good explosion, but he also needs to be more disciplined, as I saw him offsides quite a few times.  Those penalties are killer, and I’m sure the coaches are working with him.  I look for a little growth from Godchaux, and maybe even a couple of sacks this season.

________________________________________________________________

Akeem Spence DT – 6’1 307  26YO

Spence is the grizzled veteran here, at the old age of 26.  This just goes to show you how young this DT rotation is now.  Spence is a 5 year veteran who came up with Tampa Bay Bucs for 4 seasons, and played for the Detroit Lions last season.  Dolphins DL coach Kris Kocurek was in Detroit last year, and liked Spence, so the Dolphins brought him in.  Spence is a capable player who’s used to being rotated in.  Last season with the Lions, Spence had a nice season, 39 total tackles (19 solo) along with 3 sacks.  Pretty solid for a 3rd guy in, which just goes to show you the potential effectiveness of rotating players more often.  I think Spence fits in perfectly here, a guy who knows how to play the game, teach the young guys, doesn’t have a “ME” attitude, and has the ability to start if necessary.  Great pickup!

_______________________________________________________________

Vincent Taylor DT – 6’3 306  24YO

The Dolphins drafted Taylor in the 6th RD last season, and I think they got exceptional value from 2 DT’s taken in the 5th and 6th RD’s.  Taylor didn’t play as much as Godchaux, but this year he will be in the running for some more snaps, provided he earns them.  Taylor played in 13 games, finishing with 18 total tackles (11 solo).  He’s not definitely in, but I think it’s Taylor’s spot to lose at this point.

_______________________________________________________________

Gabe Wright DT – 6’3 309  26YO

Wright is a former 2015 4th RD pick by the Detroit Lions.  He is definitely at the crossroads here, this being his 3rd team in 3 years in the NFL.  The Lions waived him after spending a 4th RD pick on him in early September 2016.  He played in 7 games his rookie season, but was unimpressive.   The Browns picked him up and put him on their PS.  The Browns finally activated Wright in 2016 after appearing in just 5 games, and then the Browns waived him.  The Eagles signed Wright of June 2017, then cut him in September.  The Dolphins signed Wright at that point and signed him to the PS, where he was finally activated the last game of the season in ’17. This kid has work to do, and he better get at it fast, or he won’t be long for the NFL, which in some cases means Not For Long.  BTW, Wright was a projected 2nd or 3rd RD pick in the 2015 draft.

_______________________________________________________________

Jamiyus Pittman DT – 6’1 319  23 YO

Pittman was an UDFA pickup this season after he played right in our backyard at Central Florida.  Piitman played both outside and inside at CF, but he will definitely be inside as a DT in the pros. Pittman is going to have to play his best football if he wants to crack this roster.  Depending on how many DT’s we carry, last year we carried 4 last season, but keep in mind that DE William Hayes moves to DT in some packages.  If we do carry 4, that means Pittman will have to leapfrog both Wright and Taylor, a tall order.  If we carry 5, which is pretty likely, especially if the plan is to keep rotating players in, he has a better shot.  Pittman was pretty productive at CF, finishing with 138 total tackles (66 solo) along with 13 sacks in 4 seasons.

_______________________________________________________________

Anthony Moten DT – 6’4 315 23 YO

Moten is another UDFA that played in FLA, Moten played for the Hurricanes.  Moten was a part time player at Miami, not a starter, but that’s fine considering he would just be part of the rotation early on.  Moten was not a combine invitee.  Moten played in 27 games in 4 seasons at Miami, finishing with 38 total tackles (14 solo) along with 1.5 sacks.  Moten is obviously a longshot to make the cut.

_______________________________________________________________

So that’s where we stand at DT.  It’s still possible we pick up a veteran after early season cuts, but my guess is we probably carry 5 DT’s, and I think those will be Phillips, Godchaux, Spence, Taylor, and whichever DT shows the most in the preseason.  Wright has the pedigree, and this could be his last chance to get his career in gear, so I give him the slight edge, with Pittman right behind him.

    David – Not to belabor the issue, but your post insinuates that there’s a problem here, and THAT’s what bothers me. Sure, this blog may not be for everyone, but I feel the reason you implied, that we’re all so damn conservative that we just won’t tolerate a liberal or contrary point of view, and I think that’s nonsense. Once again, I say that politics aren’t even a small fraction of what is discussed here, and to infer that it’s the issue that turns people away is garbage. Sure, some posters here have made their political leanings well known, but how it affects the daily conversations about the Dolphins is what I DON’T see. If someone isn’t coming here because some people have strong conservative beliefs, it sounds to me like that is that individuals issue, and not a blog issue. That’s what I’m trying to get across. If you feel otherwise, I would prefer an example of what you believe exists rather than just saying it does. Thanks

    • bookman11 says:

      Mike,

      What are your thoughts on Zack Wheeler? Brewers are interested. I like he is under control through next season. What do you think Mets would wasn’t, “conservatively” speaking? Lol. Brewers have good prospects.

    • 13kvFINS says:

      On or near the bubble, the only injured guys,
      Brendal, Wright, & Derby can’t afford to miss any substantial time!!!

      Otherwise, GREATSTUFFF!!!

    Mets win 1-0. Just split a series with the hottest team in MLB.

  4. stangerx says:

    Mike E and Bookman have their own non-sexual version of a 69 going on. 🙂

  5. Mike E. says:

    Bookman – I heard from some of the post game commentators before this start that the Mets would be looking for a top 10 prospect PLUS. After this last start, they be looking closer to a top 5, and that’s just my opinion. One prospect in particular that I’d be interested in is your #4 prospect, OF Corey Ray. He seems like he would be ideal, especially due to the fact that Juan Lagares is hurt every season, and so is Cespedes, and the Mets don’t view either Brandon Nimmo or Michael Conforto as a true CF, but that might be a tough ask.

    • bookman11 says:

      That is a name I thought of as well. The Brewers cannot afford to give up too many good prospects, yet they have to strike when the iron is hot….smaller market teams have to be smart when it comes to adding players for a playoff run. It is a fascinating dynamic

    • pheloniusphish says:

      Futbol?

  6. Tim Knight says:

    Mike, I think Wheeler is a guy who maybe the Yankees and Mets make a trade for. It doesn’t have that I can’t believe they did this feel to it. The Yankees need another good arm in their rotation. deGrom is the prize but he won’t be cheap. Wheeler is an easy move on guy.

  7. sb7mvp says:

    Cespedes
    That’s the extent of my baseball talk

        Lol….nice

      • 13kvFINS says:

        HMMM…

        Serious question..
        Do exclamation points suggest a flaw in character???

        I started using them long ago, when I didn’t know how to skip a line.. I’d use !!! simply so one sentence and/or paragraph would have some sort of seperation from another!!!

        As well my eyes went bad and I couldn’t see the period dots, and I like to use them when I feel strongly about something that I came to believe was truth before reading about whatever!!!

        SCREW CHARACTER FLAW POSSIBILITIES!!!
        But, is that what !!! suggest???

        GOFINS!!!

  8. Tim Knight says:

    Mike, no beach fun, we’re more lagoonies. LOL

    Seriously though, it’s just a house, a very nice one but that’s not the key to happiness. In the past before all of what went on, it was never about the house. It was about the people and having fun. It’s been a couple of years since it’s been like that. The dynamic will never be the same but we can create new good times. That’s all we have.

  9. Mike E. says:

    KV – Nah man, I think exclamation points show a passion, or insanity. Pick what suits you best. lol

    • bookman11 says:

      KV,
      In other words, feel free to be “liberal” with your punctuation.

    • stangerx says:

      KV — one of my old mentors told me that if you need to use an exclamation mark that means you don’t know how to express your thoughts well enough in actual words, but that was a long, long time before the Twitter word limit.

      • 13kvFINS says:

        HMMM, I’m sure he was an intelligent man being your mentor!!!

        I myself think that I express myself pretty thoroughly,
        (even if I weren’t to be addicted to exclamation point)..
        Though perhaps I’m just full of myself???

        GOFINS!!!

      • 13kvFINS says:

        Which is obvious according to that last sentence, of humor, LOL!!!

        Paragraph

    • 13kvFINS says:

      Lil insane, ton a PASSION!!!

      Thanks for the all go!!!

      I have no idea as to weather I’m liberal, conservative, or whatever,
      don’t give a crap about politics, (too low on the totem pole for it to matter),
      not religious, but very spiritual,
      Just being me, whatever that is!!!

    David,

    I think the closest anyone has come to politics here lately was when it was reported NATIONALLY that Steve Ross was going to suspend ANY Phin who knelt for the National Anthem 4 games. Within 24 hours, Ross strangely did a 180 on the matter.

    The whole National Anthem thing IS a matter of politics at it’s very core… yet it’s a FOOTBALL ISSUE that could see some of our (key) players suspended. And even in discussing the matter, nobody took to name-calling or anything of the sort. I cited Ross for doing a 180 (don’t care which side of the political spectrum he’s on, but he WAFFLED worse than a politician), but we very rarely speak on politics here anymore.

    You and I had made a truce on the F-ME to no longer speak politics because it was tearing people apart over there; I carried that truce over here to the F-MU. It’s all good, Brah! I’m not sure why you even brought that non-issue up to begin with this morning.

    • Mike E. says:

      That was my feeling as well. I didn’t see a need for it at all.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I hate the kneeling but I understand the protest. The flag or anthem does not stand for injustice. It’s not accurate. Being rebellious is fair but the 1st Amendment gives you the answer you’re looking for. Your end game has never been guaranteed. Why would you want an end game? It’s the end. Life is not static, it’s fluid. WTF is going on?!!!!

  16. mf13ss says:

  17. Mike I read Your comments, and thanks for Your input on the matter.
    Partially based on what You said, and also how I feel, it’s best to Move forward and talk about cool stuff this year ! Go Dolphins! Can’t wait to see Minkah and Some other new guys kick ass!

    DEVASTATING

  19. mf13ss says:

    I REALLY don’t like getting too high or too low, too early… but Mike Gesicki certainly made the very BEST of his promotion to the 1st-team today! We just may have a future superstar in our wings!

    • Mike E. says:

      I think Gesicki gives us what we’ve all wanted for a long time, is that nightmare mismatch TE with speed, leaping ability and good hands. The blocking will come, but he has skills you can’t teach

  20. mf13ss says:

    The excitement begins for me… NOW. Once the FULL shells go on (only uppers again today), it’s truly GO TIME. NOW we can get a real feel for what we’ve got. Looking forward to what our O-Line and D-Line can do.

  21. wyoming85 says:

    • mf13ss says:

      1. Reshad Jones forced a fumble of Frank Gore and he didn’t INT TANNEHILL
      2. Danny Amendola had tons of TDs today from TANNEHILL
      3. Mike Gesicki caught a TD from TANNEHILL with the 1s

      Shouldn’t TANNEHILL be on this list??? Nah… not from OMAR!

  22. I’m ecstatic We got the best defender in the draft! The ever versatile and forever blasting Minkah Fitzpatrick!

  23. naplesfan2010 says:

    The catch that Gesicki made was just electrifying, not just as a single catch, but that it was not flukey or a “look what i found” thing. That was all about concentration, timing, and athleticism. And great hands. And it was caught on Minkah, not some camp body.

    Mike E. says:
    July 29, 2018 at 7:04 pm
    Me too man, me too. Thrilled to have him
    ————-
    I talked to some cats in the industry, and while it wasn’t exactly a ‘consensus’ deal, most really thought that Gesicki was going to go in the late 1st round. It was actually a GRAND stroke of luck that Gesicki lasted to us in the 2nd round.

    Brian and his son: homers for Gesicki!!!
    Mike E: get me the BEST TE we can get!!!
    M13: Gesicki is the ONE TE we want!!!

    WINNING!!! 🙂 😀

    And ANYBODY who thinks that Gesicki is going to be the next Egg-carton… NAH… that’s not how the Force works! 😉

  25. mf13ss says:

    Mike E,

    Where the heck has Brian been? Haven’t seen him since just after the Draft. He should be SEEING how NICELY Gesicki did in his first day with the 1s!!!

    • mf13ss says:

      These are the other things that PFF can’t/won’t account for: trends, coaching changes, injury returns, and scheme familiarity.

      IF we play more man-to-man coverage, Xavien Howard has demonstrated that he’s a FORCE to be reckoned with. Cordrea Tankersley is on the cusp of becoming somebody NICE. Bobby McCain had a NICE season last year. And the list goes ON and ON and ON.

      If it were me predicting our Secondary success? I’d say… and granted our DF7 arrives in terms of a pass-rush… a top-10 unit, EASILY. Possibly even a top-5 unit.

  31. steveccnv says:

    Let’s see if I have this correct. Our QB could be beaten out by Serena Williams and 4 other women athletes. Our RBs are the worst in the league. Our Wrs are 29th. We didn’t select a QB like we were supposed to in the draft. Ryan is injury prone. The new FAs are too old. We couldn’t possibly be better after getting rid of Suh, Landry and Pouncey. Power pulls have us at 32.

    Yet the sharp money from the professional bettors is all over taking the over on 6 wins. 2 weeks ago it was -145 today the over is -190.

    It’s hard to beat the cheats when 1 guy is catching all the passes. Our no name offense and no name defense is going to expose the frauds in the national media.
    ———–
    I’m 100% with ya, Brother. And while I’m NOT a “Tannehater”, I just want to see him spread the ball around, as opposed to just playing catch with Jarvis every game. IF Tanny can spread the ball around, this ‘No-name Offense’ of ours WILL take off.

    And while I’m NOT a “Tannelover”, I fundamentally BELIEVE he can do this! I have VERY high aspirations for Tanny this year!

    • steveccnv says:

      I think the coaching staff can help him out by the playcalling too. Nothing really has changed though with Ryan, hes been targeting his new slot receiver Amendola almost like he did with Landry.

  36. manitobafinfan says:

    My opinion is Tannehill is a major upgrade to Cutler if he is healthy .. after that it all starts with the OL .. keep our QB clean and we will be there in December and likely January.. def needs to create more Turnovers, and YES play off the offensive improvements and momentum.. as Tim and others say Complimentary Football

  37. steveccnv says:

    In years past the beginning of training camp has seen the DL dominate the OL. Let’s see what happens tomorrow when the full pass come on.

    Mini camps in the past has also seen the DL dominate, but this year it’s been back and forth.

    I don’t think theres any question the OL is better this year.

    • manitobafinfan says:

      To add to that Steve, in past years we have been asking which one of our back up OL will take control of starting position x , this year , barring injuries, we seem to have a starting OL from the get go.. if anyone now steps up to take a starting job, it will be through hard work , not a “somebody has to play” situation ,, we are overdue to have an injury free to light injury year.

    …………………………

    Ya know Steve, the Fins had adversity before, We had a season that featured,,,

    Our starting QB broke his leg game 5 and out for the year.
    Our OL was castoffs, and our defense was void of any household NFL names.
    We had a RB snorting cocaine, and another a lowly 18th round pick.
    We had a third year HC, that had a resume including losing a SB to the putrid Joe Namath, and getting embarrassed by the cowpokes. People said He couldn’t win the Big game.

    This was 1972, our undefeated season 😎

    Tannehill showing impressive footwork in backpedaling drill, able to switch feet with ease. Not the case for the other 3 QBs (Osweiler, Fales, Petty). Tannehill wouldn’t have been this smooth 2 yrs ago.

    • steveccnv says:

      I’m surprised Fales isn’t the best in this drill, but sometimes you have to consider the source.

      • Rockphin says:

        Cutler was very good at backpedaling. He would almost backpedal out of the stadium every play.

    Gotta SUCK for anyone who made the drive down to Davie this morning!

    Lightning in area. Alarm sounds. Team going inside to practice bubble, fans being cleared from stands. Practice now closed to public.

    • Rockphin says:

      sooooo, closed to public must mean closed to the reporters too? Tweets have all stopped since the announcement that they are moving the practice.

  51. Rockphin says:

    Nope, just a delay getting everything set up to practice again I guess.

    Things just got real serious at #MiamiDolphins training camp and Mike Gesicki getting full pad first team TE reps

    As expected #MiamiDolphins DL doing work in first padded practice. QBs under pressure.

    Greg Joseph powers through a 55-yarder.

    Not sure if he is still even competition.

    Grant schools Lippett on a double move; Lippett held but still gave up the touchdown.

    So Danny Amendola and bobby McCain going at it. Grab each other’s face masks. Bark at each other. And then end up shaking hands.

    Chris Perkins

    @chrisperk
    McCain & Amendola go at it after incomplete. Rivalry back on!!

    Adam Beasley

    @AdamHBeasley
    We have our first dust up and it predictably includes McCain and Amendola. No punches thrown.

    It’s the Rock Report. Thanks Rock for keeping us up to date

    The cut and paste report. I can stop if anyone wants.

    @AdamHBeasley
    Stills drops a would-be touchdown in team. Very out of character for him.

    Adam Beasley

    @AdamHBeasley
    Now Xavien Howard breaks up a deep pass to Parker. This is something.

    • steveccnv says:

      Forget about a breakout for Howard, hes already broken out. When the jets had Revis Island working, that D was really good. Locking down one side allows coverage to be shifted to other areas of need.

  69. steveccnv says:

    I believe Howard shutting down Cooks was a big reason why the cheats traded him.

  70. Rockphin says:

    I don’t see Brock making it with the Dolphins.

    Joe Schad

    @schadjoe
    Jerome Baker dropped what should have been an INT of Brock Osweiler #MiamiDolphins

    • steveccnv says:

      That’s a good thing. You cant game plan for an erratic QB, see 2017 Cutler. Give me a game managing Fales. Fales isn’t an ideal backup QB at this point, but we can win with him.

  71. Rockphin says:

    LOL!!

    Brief skirmish breaks out, highlighted by officials repeatedly blowing their whistles. Because if anything is going to cool off 300-pound football players during the dog days, it’s a ref blowing his whistle.

    @schadjoe
    Jakeem Grant and Minkah Fitzpatrick emerge from scrum fired up. Hard to tell who was swinging. But emotional moment at #MiamiDolphins practice.

    nice posts!

    Did the blog get hijacked last night? What the hell was Tim talking about? lol

    • Rockphin says:

      I wasn’t going to go there this morning. My first assumption was a response to someone famous who goes on twitter rants in the middle of the night…..an ex-reality show host.

    • stangerx says:

      Sure didn’t sound like Tim, but luckily for us he will be on at some point to say either it wasn’t him or to explain. Maybe he was Ambian posting. 🙂

    @AdamHBeasley
    Offensive coaches are demonstrably displeased after practice today.

    Demonstrably huh, In other words the Offensive coaches thought that the offense was offensive and lost their shit on the team!
