Malcolm Perry could be one of the most versatile rookies for the Miami Dolphins’ future.
On Offense, there also were guys that can come in and play multiple roles. Malcolm Perry comes to mind instantly. Playing in Navy’s run-heavy, triple-option attack; This college Quarterback could play running back (where he is listed) Receiver (in the mold of Julius Edelman / Antwaan Randle El) or Quarterback if we get that far down the depth chart.
Also, we have the most depth at the receiver position and guys that can play all receiver positions. We have more starting-caliber receivers then has ever been on a Miami Dolphins roster since 2008. Also, have guys that can play in the slot with Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant, and Kirk Merritt, to name a few. I cannot forget to mention that Gesicki and Williams played multiple snaps in the slot last year as well.
Lastly, we cannot mention the offensive depth and not mention our newfound dept at Quarterback. 2019 magician Ryan Fitzpatrick will probably start the season. There is competition at the position this year, and Coach Flores has yet to say who the starter will be. That competition will feature 2020 5th overall selection Tua Tagovailoa and 2018 10th overall selection Josh Rosen.
In a regular season, I would assume we keep the top two in the offseason competition and trade or cut the third. However, in our new COVID-19 reality, maybe Miami ensures they have a serviceable starter every game in 2020 and keep one stowed away at home to be ready if tragedy strikes.
No matter how you look at it. These position groups were marked as most important to remain competitive over a full 2020 NFL Season. There is a lack of depth at pass-rusher, and on the defensive line that will worry some if there are multiple players placed on the COVID-19 reserve list, but this front office did an excellent job identifying what positions they needed to over obtain to keep a good team on the field for a full NFL season.
