Miami Dolphins Offseason Needs
Hollywood, FL is full of passionate Miami Dolphins fans. With Miami just a short drive from your apartment at The Club at Emerald Waters, we here love getting down to Miami to catch Dolphins games whenever we can. This season, the Dolphins got off to a hot start, followed by a disappointing end. Clearly the team has some talent, but what can they do to improve in the offseason? Here we identify two positions where Miami could seek to improve.
Ryan Tannehill has been the starting QB in Miami for a little too long. Tannehill has always been decent, but not great. In the NFL today, an elite quarterback is absolutely essential to a franchise’s long-term success. With other young AFC quarterbacks on the rise like Patrick Mahomes, Andrew Luck, and Deshaun Watson, the Dolphins need to identify their own young star if they want to keep up. If Miami positions themselves to draft Dwayne Haskins from Ohio State or Drew Lock from Missouri, it could go a long way toward defining their long-term success.
In 2018, the Dolphins ranked 31st out of 32 teams in total sacks. As many of the successful teams in the past have shown us, a strong defensive front is critical to the success of a football team. With poor seasons from Robert Quinn and Cameron Wake, it’s probably time to move on from these veteran players in favor of some young, fresh legs. In the trade market, any member of the Eagles’ defensive line become available if they look to shed money from their cap sheet. Additionally, the draft is full of good passers this year like Montez Sweat and Brian Burns, who could be available in the second or third rounds of the draft if Miami opts to use their first round pick on a QB.
What do you think the Dolphins need to do to be successful next year? Be sure to comment below and let us know. Thanks for reading our blog this month!
