Excellent job, Dan! Nice observations and balanced as usual.
If I have a current area of concern it is with the linebackers, and cornerback depth. Jaelan Phillips and Andrew Van Ginkel are hybrid types and more associated with the pass rush and/or setting the edge. My concerns are the guys outside of Jerome Baker. Elandon Roberts, Brennan Scarlett and Duke Riley are fine players, but they can disappear. Maybe Channing Tindall blossoms quickly, but you never want to rely on a 3rd Round rookie to carry the day. With Roquan Smith requesting a trade out of Chicago it may not be a bad idea to pursue a difference maker on defense. As for the corners, I would be concerned if either Xavien Howard or Byron Jones miss any time. Nik Needham is solid, and yes it appears Noah Igbinoghene may salvage something of his career, but do you really trust any of them to scare opposing offenses? No team is perfect, so these concerns aren't really keeping me up at night. There may be some talent upgrades after final cuts.
Right now, I see the Dolphins targeting CB, LB, RB, and OL with their first few draft picks next year. I mean, how long are we not going to be serious about adding a real ILB playmaker on this team? Also, Nik Needham becomes a UFA next year (I believe), so, perhaps Trill Williams becomes that guy.
Phins Freaking Up!
Nice idea for a Phinfever shirt there.
