Number 6: Mike Pouncey
Without the injured hip Pouncey would be higher on the list but frankly, it’s hard to rely on him for a full season. Still when he is healthy he is absolutely Pro-Bowl material and the Dolphins offensive line is always at it’s best.
Pouncey has yet to finish a full season since 2012. Hip injuries have plagued his career. This off-season Pouncey underwent specialized therapy to increase his healing and has been at practices without a cane. It will be important to see how he responds in training camp when first contact occurs.
Number 5: Ryan Tannehill
Tannehill make major strides in the right direction in 2016 but there are still questions from a lot of people. It seems Tannehill has as many fans as detractors. Like Pouncey there is a question about his health.
After suffering a grade II MCL sprain in 2016 Tannehill did not need surgery despite a partial tear of the ACL. Tannehill isn’t expected to have many physical limitations if any but mentally he could have problems with hits and it’s uncertain if he will be as active in running the ball when lanes are not as wide.
