I hope so. When I think of any offensive lineman drafted by our Dolphins outside the first round over the past decade I think of players who are soft and never able to play at the NFL level. I'm crossing my fingers on this one, and I'm glad we're throwing him in there so that we can get a good grade on him. Since 'Mando isn't calling bull crap on this, maybe Deiter has a chance to turn the corner.

It’s pretty evident the Dolphins are committed to third-round draft pick Michael Deiter getting every opportunity to win the starting left guard spot if it’s not a done deal already. Why?

Well, he’s not actually yet ready to be very good. But the team believes he’s going to be good as the coming season moves forward. The team believes Deiter will make the adjustment to the NFL’s faster play-speed with a little experience and will eventually let his natural abilities show as he gets more comfortable.

That’s one reason veteran journeyman Chris Reed, who started training camp as a starter ahead of Deiter, has been moved to reserve center. Reed could be a solid swing player inside. Deiter, barring a serious failure, is the future at left guard. In fact, he’s the present, too.

Watched him a bit in the Big10, he is smart I'll give him that. Did well opening holes for BADgers SUCK RBs, and was fine in providing Hornibrook pass protection so he could throw the ball to the opposing team. I think he will come along just fine and be a consistently solid lineman.

Finally a starting guard somewhat close to Incognito’s ability? Screw you Jonathan Martin.
