2015 Dolphins Draft Picks
Miami Dolphins – 2015
Well it has been awhile since my last blog. I have to hand it to sports writers. No matter how bad, they have to keep on writing. Anyway, I’ve heard the lack of talent excuse already being thrown out to excuse what’s happening in Miami. My thoughts are that if they get a real coach, it will turn around. Even the fan base can spot the issues… WR’s running routes in the same area…like within 5 yards of each other. Blitzes where the DBs are 10yds off the WRs…. Being in complete man coverage with a RB in the backfield…. I could go on and on but the Dolphins problems appear to all be scheme and motivation. That’s the good news. The bad news is finding a good coach is like finding gold on a hike. It just doesn’t happen very often. It will be interesting to see how all of this drama plays out in the off-season.
Campbell – Its hard not to give the guy a shot. He’ll likely split the last 2 and finish almost .500. Given the awful circumstances a year to find his feet might not be a bad option. What have the Dolphins got to lose? I’d say 1 year even if he loses the last 2 due to Ross shooting off his oversized mouth about wanting to pay top dollar for a coach. Ross will excuse his terrible behavior anyway he wants but until he hires a decent President and GM tandem and let them run the team, Miami might never get out of the tailspin. Contrast him with Robert Kraft. Is Kraft out there trying to fill jobs? No. He let’s his people do their jobs. The only time you hear about him is if he is out defending his players. Even his ex-players love him and its genuine. No one likes Ross…. And that permeates the organization as a whole. My fear is we will end up witnessing another Todd Bowles situation unfold a couple of years from now with Campbell and Ross’s incompetence will again be on display.
Holes – yes there seems to be a ton but really there is Guard, CB and LB probably in that order. It isn’t uncommon to find sleeper guards and LBs in the draft. CB might be another issue altogether. Tough to draft a kid that plays that position well. The problem Miami has now is they’re saddled with two huge contracts… RT and Suh. That will limit what they can do in the FA market. Miami really needs a few things to go well for them in the off-season to be competitive next season. We’re all hoping for that.
