Vince Biegel – LB
Lost in all of the linebacker changes that took place this off-season, Biegel was brought back for another season and this year he could get to see more playing time despite the additions.
In 2019, Biegel embraced the vision and the scheme of Brian Flores. Asked to do multiple jobs on defense, Biegel didn’t balk at the opportunity, unlike Minkah Fitzpatrick. Instead, he embraced the opportunity.
With a year under his belt in Miami, we should expect to see him more often on defense both in coverage and blitzing the passer. He has the tools to be very good and while he will not likely ever reach an elite status, Biegel is one of those contributors that gets the job done and is reliable.
The coaches know the role and the limits that Biegel has which will work well in his favor as he won’t be asked to do things that he physically can’t. Flores knows his talent level and if he can take another big step forward this year he could become a Teddy Bruschi type linebacker for the Dolphins and I don’t think anyone will complain at all if that happens.
2020 will be the first season that Biegel has played a consecutive season for the same team. He was in Green Bay in 2017 and New Orleans in 2018 before being traded straight up for Kiko Alonso. Last season, he totaled 57 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Expect more in 2020.
