Jumping down to the Miami Dolphins, the team surprisingly ranks at 13, with one elite player in Cameron Wake, and three "high quality" starters in Branden Albert, Randy Starks, and Brent Grimes. While Ja'Wuan James at right tackle gets the purple rookie tage and Dallas Thomas at right guard receives the gray "not enough information" moniker, the rest of the Miami offense is at least "average" (Shelley Smith and Lamar Miller), with the vast majority reaching the "good starters" light green, with Ryan Tannehill, Knowshon Moreno, Charles Clay, Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, Brandon Gibson, and Mike Pouncey all falling in the category.

The defense, however, is another story. While Wake is elite and Starks and Grimes are high quality, there are a lot of orange ranked "below average" players manning the Miami defense. Olivier Vernon, Dannell Ellerbe, Philip Wheeler, and Cortland Finnegan all fall in the orange. Louis Delmas and Koa Misi are in the yellow "average starter" levels, while Jared Odrick and Reshad Jones are "good starters." Jamar Taylor makes up the 12th defensive player, coming in with the gray "not enough information" label.

Olivier Vernon had 11.5 sacks last year - that makes him below average?

Ya, Vernon and Pouncey grades need to be higher.

Pouncey needs to be much higher. He is one of the best at his position in the league FFS...

How well did Vernon do against the run? I don't know. I think PFF grades a player on every play and how well they did with their assignment.
