Could the Miami Dolphins finally fix their offensive line problems? Maybe this year they do.
Forget about the drafting of Austin Jackson, Solomon Kindley, and Robert Hunt. The Dolphins also added Ereck Flowers to play guard. Flowers, a former first-round pick of the Giants struggled in New York at tackle but last year with the Redskins (soon to be someone else) he flourished at guard.
The Dolphins are hoping that Flowers will continue his development. Ted Karras is the Dolphins new center and brings along with the Patriot way of doing things. He should slide into his new role with the required leadership that will help the younger guys develop.
Overall the Dolphins really have not fielded a solid offenisve line since Richie Incognito left. Now they have a chance to all develop together and while the unit, like most of the roster will be very young, we should see an almost daily improvement as training camp goes on and hopefully a much improved group by the time the season begins in early September.
This year’s Miami Dolphins has more than a few position groups that will be fun to watch but those listed above, for their own reasons, are five that we should all being paying attention to.
