Season Outlook Analysis

Offense
Position
Quarterbacks
C-
The situation isn't dire, but it isn't great. Adding Josh Rosen was a great value and this year needs to be about figuring out if he is the long term answer at quarterback. Any other reasonable outcome is a waste of a season.
Running Backs
C-
Ballage and Drake figure to split time but Myles Gaskin is a dark horse to keep an eye on.
Protection & Blocking
B-
The offensive line is in decent shape.
Receiving
C-
A string of under achievers populate the Dolphins receiving corps. Mike Geisicki looks like a keeper though.

Skills Analysis Notes
The Dolphins have no proven play makers. This looks like a really poor offense at this time.
Defense
Position
Defensive Line
C
Wilkins should make everyone better but there is still a lot of room for improvement.
Linebackers
C
We'll see.
Defensive Backs
B
There is some depth at safety, which should probably be traded away for mid round picks, and some talent at corner back.

Skills Analysis Notes
There are some talented players on the defense but they are either young, historically under performing, or both.

The jury is out on both Flores as an individual and the broader concept of hiring a Bellichek disciple as a head coach.

rebuilding year. Figure out if Rosen is the guy moving forward and if so trade down for many many selections.
