Talk about a dynamite, very high falutin analysis this is amiright? Jensen is really good at his job. He only had four penalties last season. In comparison, Austin Jackson had 13. You might think that a guy like Jensen who isn’t afraid to mix it up and get in other play’s faces, would have more personal foul penalties. But he doesn’t. Jensen knows how to control his emotions just enough to get his point across but he’s savvy enough to get the other guy draw the penalty.
Jensen was tied for 11th in the league in sacks allowed with only two sacks allowed. That, for us Dolphin fans, doesn’t make sense to us considering what we had to watch last year. Most of our linemen would have that beat by halftime.
In the run game, Jensen is best to be used in a power running game. That doesn’t mean that Jensen can’t work well in a wide zone-blocking scheme because Jensen is very good at pulling and kicking out. He can lead through a hole like few can from the center position and is decent enough on combination blocks. Jensen also made his first pro-bowl this year so you can say he’s getting better with age.
Yes, Jensen will cost a good amount of money. But the attitude and leadership that he would be bringing to a young, potentially on-the-rise team is very tough to translate in terms of money. Jensen can come in and be one of the top leaders not just on offense but for the whole team from day one. The guy won a Super Bowl a few years so he kind of knows what it takes to win it all.
Signing Ryan Jensen seems like a no-brainer. I hope the Miami Dolphins do everything they can to get him to Miami.
