The Dolphins looked better on the ground this week following the addition of Phillip Lindsay after he was cut to waivers by the Houston Texans. In his first week as a Dolphin, the former Pro-bowler was given double-digit carries and gained over 40 yards.
It was a good first game in the aqua and orange, but it still shows the Dolphins are missing a game-changer at the running back position. That’s where Iowa State running back Breece Hall.
Hall is one of the most successful running backs in College Football history and is currently on a 24 game streak with atleast one rushing touchdown, the longest in College Football history.
At 6’1” 228lbs, Hall is a big back that runs with power and speed and has displayed the ability to catch the football as well.
In his three-season at Iowa State, Hall’s lowest rushing totals were his true freshman year where he had 897 rush yards and 9 touchdowns. In back-to-back season, Hall has rushed for over 1,400 yards, 1,500 in 2020, and 23 touchdowns from scrimmage.
Hall is a monster with the football and a touchdown machine, he also features a bigger frame than Michigan State’s Kenneth Walker. However, like Walker, Hall is a run-first back who would complement well alongside Gaskin and now likely Lindsay for the 2022 season.
Hall has workhorse painted all over him and the Dolphins need a back with his ability to continue to improve on offense.
