Post The Florida rookie trio impresses early
Quote:
Wherever you looked — on offense, defense or special teams — you were bound to see a Gator on the first day of Dolphins rookie minicamp Friday.

There was running back Mike Gillislee turning the corner and exploding for what would have been a long touchdown run if the play hadn’t been blown dead.

There was linebacker Jelani Jenkins maneuvering swiftly in coverage.

There was kicker Caleb Sturgis booming a 50-yard field goal, with at least five yards to spare.

For the three Dolphins draft picks making the Gainesville-to-Davie trek, there is also the collective comfort of beginning their NFL journeys with the same team.

All 3 are legit and will play early and often if you ask me I just wonder if Jenkins will be healthy and impress enough to be the starter next year

Jenkins probably won't start this year, Miami is pretty deep at the LB position. He'll definitely see some playing time though, they all will.

Somebody needs to unseat Koa Misi. Weakest link IMO. That might be Jordan as an outside backer when it is all said and done.

In the everyone on the team isn't going to be the best in the league department.

Where does Misi rank at his position?

I don't see this great need in him be ousted....3.5 sack 3 ff 65 tackles
If he is the weak link we should be in pretty good shape

I agree, I think Dion Jordan would be a huge improvement over Koa Misi if our staff decided to use him as a SAM linebacker. While Jenkins is excellent in coverage, I think he's going to be Wheeler's backup this year.

Our linebacker corps definitely has injected some serious speed, hopefully it pays off and they turn out to be one of the better units in the NFL.
