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.

The Dolphins seem sold out in trying to develop young talent along the OL. The only way they will learn and adjust to the NFL speed is to throw them in the game. Maybe the blind squirrel found an acorn in Deiter this year.

***I love that the Dolphins played rookie guards Michael Deiter, the third-round pick, and Shaq Calhoun, an undrafted free agent, into the third quarter. They need the work.

Neither was awesome the first game. Both showed improvement the second game.

Both need a lot more work.

Deiter gave up two sacks. The first happened because right tackle Jesse Davis got beat off the snap and when Rosen stepped up, he basically ran into the man who had beaten Deiter. The second was Deiter simply getting beat with speed.

Calhoun gave up a sack to Demone Harris in the third quarter.

Deiter is a way better run-blocker than pass blocker at this stage. Calhoun is not quite as developed as Deiter and needs significant work on both his pass protection and run blocking. Both need to improve their balance.

It’s a work in progress with these two young players
