I read this update in January -
Quote:
The Palm Beach Post mentions Dolphins OT Will Yeatman as a player who could be a starter in 2013 should impending free agent LT Jake Long leave.
Yeatman, 25 in April, is a converted tight end with solid athleticism. Coach Joe Philbin was at the University of Iowa when they transformed tight ends Robert Gallery and Eric Steinbach into quality linemen. Yeatman has bulked up to 305 pounds and is working out in San Diego with offensive line guru Hudson Houck


& I got excited about the idea because at 6'6" 305lbs hes about a perfect fit. & now -
Quote:
Coach Joe Philbin is "excited" about third-year OT Will Yeatman.
"I’m excited now that we have a chance to really kind of sink our teeth in with him," Philbin said. "I think he’ll have a chance to compete. I think he might have some position flexibility. I think he’s athletic enough. He might be able to go to the right side. He might be able to go to the left side. He can move. He’s a good athlete." Yeatman is a converted tight end, and his athleticism could earn him a prominent role in Miami's zone-blocking scheme - boston globe/rotoworld


Of course Miami should still draft an OT early but Houck and Phibin know what they're doing

He's not somebody that you can count on though.

With the word we're hearing on Winston, I think Miami's plan A is this: Sign Winston to a 1-2 year deal (or at least a deal you can get out of easily after 1-2 years), draft an OT in Day 2 of the draft, and now you have time to develop Yeatman along with that draft pick to eventually compete for the RT job.

That is when coaches have to trust what they see. Pete Carrol went into the season with a 3rd rd rookie Qb. He trusted what he was seeing. If Yeatman shown them something last year, then they have to trust what they saw.

They went out and got Flynn to be the starter, and he started camp as such. The plan coming out of the Off Season wasn't to start him.

Could I see them going into camp with Yeatman, Garner and a Day 2 pick duking it out? Definitely. But they're not putting all their eggs in Yeatman's basket.

It's nice to hear the guy is working hard to convert to an OT, but honestly I'd be a little worried if our plans going into the season were Gardner and Yeatman at RT.

I'm hoping we stay put and Lane Johnson is there at 12. Johnson is a guy who I feel is capable of competing with and possibly beating Martin for the starting LT job. But he's also capable of being a great RT. Between Martin and Johson I think we'd have a good pair of tackles.
