First news on the docket is the Miami Dolphins have granted former OC Dowell Loggains permission to seek employment elsewhere. Loggains has all but been named Adam Gase’s OC for the NY Jets. You know it makes me angry typing Gase’s name? I hope he does miserably for the Jets. The biggest news though is the Miami Dolphins have sent Dan Marino to scout the QB’s at the Senior Bowl.
The Dolphins are in obvious need of a QB, especially once they either trade or cut Ryan Tannehill, which would leave Luke Falk and newly acquired Jake Rudock as the only QB’s on the roster. That doesn’t mean we will be drafting a QB in the 1st RD, but it is a legitimate possibility. The North roster has 2 possible 1st RD picks in Drew Lock and Daniel Jones, as well as later picks Ryan Finley and Trace McSorley. The South roster has Will Grier, Gardner Minshew, Jarret Stidham and Tyree Jackson. If you like big QB’s, Tyree Jackson is 6’7 245. Marino should be watching all these QB’s closely, we simply need to add QB talent no matter what.
We all know a lot of the top talent in this draft lies in the defensive line, the defensive ends and tackles. The majority of talent in this draft are Juniors or lower, but there are a handful of talented Seniors as well. At DE there’s Montez Sweat, Zach Allen, Jaylon Ferguson, Carl Granderson and Charles Omenihu, and DT Isaiah Buggs.
Unfortunately, one of our resident scouts here “D” will not be attending the Senior Bowl as he has the last few years, but I will be watching practices and whatever else I can, and I’m sure a few people here will be watching as well, so any info or observations you have, let us know.
