Shiny new toys. This offense has fire power on paper to keep up with almost any offense in the NFL. Out of almost nowhere, Miami made a deal with Kansas City to bring in a man that needs no introduction in Tyreek Hill. Chase Edmonds, Raheem Mostert, and Sony Michel all signed with Miami this offseason – three guys who are all more talented than any running back they had in 2021. With the duo threat at wide receiver this season, expect Mike Gesicki to put his hand in the dirt this season playing as a true tight end instead of a wide receiver. There is a lot of pressure on Tua Tagovailoa to take another step forward this season or else Teddy Bridgewater is waiting in the wings to take control of this high-powered offense.
Can this offensive line keep Tua upright long enough to let plays develop? Last year, PFF graded this offensive line as the worst in the league. The unit gave up a league-leading 235 quarterback pressures and had the worst pass-blocking efficiency in the NFL. How come they didn’t look like the worst in the league? This was most likely due to Tua’s average time to throw in 2021 — 2.49 seconds. Pass block win rate measures how often a line can sustain a pass block for 2.5 seconds. 18% of Tua’s pass attempts in 2021 came off of RPOs, which was the highest in the league by 6%. This horrible offensive line was disguised all of last season by being able to run block on short, quick passing plays. Miami brought in Terron Armstead and Connor Williams this offseason, which is a step in the right direction. Is Tyreek Hill fast enough to help this pass blocking situation, or is Tua going to be criticized all year for not throwing the deep ball?
The Dolphins have one of the best cornerbacks in football in Xavien Howard. Howard can’t cover every receiver on the field though. It’s sounding like Byron Jones might not be ready for Week 1 after missing all of training camp to this point with minor Achilles surgery this offseason. Nik Needham is an improving long-term solution. Trill Williams suffered a torn ACL in preseason week 1. That leaves them with Mackensie Alexander, Elijah Campbell, and Keion Crossen to fill the void – all of which were anticipated to be nothing more than special teams players. Let’s not forget before the magical run in the second part of last season, this Dolphins defense was the worst in the NFL – ranking 27th in interception rate and giving up 414.9 yards per game in their 1-6 start last season.
